Inexperienced future chaser looks just the type to win EBF Final
Buy at 11 on the index
Sporting Index are offering a 5 bonus for buyers in both the EBF Final and Imperial Cup, which encourages playing in one of those two markets rather than in any match.
The earlier EBF Final is traditionally a race for future chasers and that is worth bearing in mind for more than just your tracker. Captain Morgs has the sort of profile to fit the race in that sense, but it also explains how he struggled at Fakenham last time.
Up against Shang Tang that day (who is almost as stoutly bred but has loads more experience), Captain Morgs was made to look a little slow and also jumped right at the tight, left-turning Fakenham.
He went a bit left at Kempton the time before, which is probably a reflection of this son of Milan's inexperience. His dam is also a half-sister to Macgeorge and Chief Dan George, both staying chasers whose most famous moments came in the spring.
Captain Morgs has four runs behind him now and, just as importantly, gets to try handicaps from a mark of 128. He seems certain to end up quite a bit better than that and ought to finish in the first cluster here. He will need to be third to make a profit, but the bonus here acts as welcome insurance.
