REECE’S LONGSHOT | Stratford: Saturday’s Each-Way Bet of the Day

A well-handicapped chaser makes the cut for the each-way selection at Stratford on Saturday



Stratford Racecourse General
888 Promotion
Caius Marcius – 6.40 Stratford (14/1 – William Hill)

A 2m2½f Class 2 Handicap Chase at Stratford holds the day’s each-way bet, with a runner from Nicky Richards’ yard potentially hinting at some value.

Caius Marcius had hit a patch of bad form over the winter months, which has seen his mark gradually decline.

Nicky Richards Smiles On
Nicky Henderson will be hoping Caius Marcius can return to winning ways at Stratford

The gelding returns after a 4 ½ month break and is now 14lbs lower than his last winning rating.

He is stepped up in trip here, but he should be able to deal with a bit of cut in the ground even though his preference of good ground is known.

With a price of 14/1, Caius Marcius could push for the places at least if he is back to his best.
