2:05 Market Rasen – Keep The Faith
There are a couple of juveniles of interest in the Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap Hurdle, and at the prices, I’m prepared to have a stab at Keep The Faith who represents the shrewd team of Mick and David Easterby. Angels Landing is the other 4-y-o, and the Ian Williams-trained filly has very obvious claims, as indicated by her place at the head of the market.
Keep The Faith makes less appeal on what he’s achieved over timber, but he was clueless on debut, swerving and unseating his rider, so has gained a mark for just two runs, neither of which showed him in his best light. An indication of his chance here is that if he met Astroman on the Flat, he would receive just 4lb in a handicap, but he gets a full two stone here on the back of a couple of potentially misleading runs.
Whilst it is undeniable that Astroman has achieved more over hurdles at this point, getting raised a pound for his Fakenham third looks a miserly thing for the handicapper to do, given the form hasn’t worked out at all. Keep The Faith has always looked a handicap project and the fact that he’s getting a 13lb weight-for-age allowance he’s not entitled to on the Flat is clearly an angle worth working, for all it applies to Angels Landing as well.
