A new month and this weeks horse in profile is the Sue Gardner trained Sirop De Menthe.
The 7-year-old’s career record is –
5 wins from 28 runs
Strike Rate 18%
Place Strike Rate 36%.
Three of those five wins have come in November – 3 wins from 4 runs, 4 placed with form figures of 2111. He is also 2 wins from 3 runs in handicap hurdles when racing 121 to 365 days since his last run so can go well first time up.
The gelding’s last win came off a mark of 128 and he starts this winter off a very winnable mark off a mark of 124. The stable’s runners are usually well backed when they fancy one so you would be advised to get an early price about him when he does run. All his wins have come in Class 3 or lower and his figures in Class 2 or higher are 0 wins from 4 runs 1 placed.
N.B. Sirop De Menthe in handicap hurdles at class 3 or lower.
