Outlaw Tom, the horse who several of us TRF’ers have a share in via TRF’s involvement in the Milnathort Racing Club, runs in the 4.30 at Wetherby tomrrow.
Tom will carry joint top weight, which shouldn’t pose a particular problem as he is a big horse who seems to carry weight well.
He has to give a stone to Wide Receiver, a last time out winner for Charlie Longsdon, which might prove tough. Wide Receiver is the 5/2 fav but it is 8/1 bar so is pretty open looking. Best price Tom is currently 12/1 with Hills.
Trainer Lucinda Russell is happy with him and he is expected to improve on his promising most recent run, which came off a break.
Campbell Gillies will be on board as Peter Buchanan, our regular jockey, travels elsewhere for several rides.
I remember this horse being with Alex Hales. It beat Kilbeggan Blade who was a useful late 130s horse in its prime. Good luck for tomorrow, stable is starting to fire with 3 or 4 winners in the last couple of weeks.
