Gortroe Joe – 2.30 Perth (12/1 – William Hill)
A Class 3 2m4f Handicap Hurdle at Perth holds the day’s each-way bet, with an interesting hurdler from Fergal O’Brien’s yard potentially hinting at some value.
Gortroe Joe has proven his versatility by switching between hurdles and fences throughout his career, and the nine-year-old returns to tackle the smaller obstacles.
The gelding was poor on his last start over hurdles and has been dropped 3lbs in the weights, which could benefit him here.
O’Brien’s runner did claim victory over the smaller obstacles off 3lbs at Warwick and he has the bonus of a 5lb claimer booked in as well.
With a price of 12/1, Gortroe Joe could prove to be each-way value in this contest.
