BIOTIC – Sandown 5:15 RUK

Luckily Biotic was one that found his way into the number one spot when winning for the first time in nearly three years at Leicester last Thursday. He has got his confidence back after a disappointing twelve months and was able to take advantage of a mark of just 59. Unfortunately, the handicapper has hit him very hard with a 9lb rise for that success, harsh on the bare form, so our hand is forced to run him under a 6lb penalty at Sandown this evening. As he needs to go right handed, options were limited and a mile in a Lady Riders race is far from ideal. However, he has a nice draw in stall one to track the pace and if he isn’t too keen, he should not be too far away with the consistent Michele Strogoff the main danger.
