Today I really want to discuss an apprentice jockey that I believe will make into a future star.. His name is Mark Crehan. Remember that name I feel this guy could be the next William Buick or David Probert. He is from Rathcore in Ireland and he first came to my attention when riding a double on the sands at Geesala races in county mayo. He is well balanced and has great timing and just has a way of getting the best out of a horse.
Yesterday I had a small interest on 2 horses he rode for Matt Salaman the first Molly Jones won after the horse came from nowhere in the final 100 yards and flew home at 50/1 the next horse unfortunately came down after taking a false step. I think most trainers are just waking up to his talent and the fact that he has a 7lb claim that looks incredibly good value. Not so Mick Appleby who has already had a winner and a number of placed horses with this lad on board.
He has 2 rides today and I’m hoping he can land an each way double as well as a couple of single bets for us. I really believe this lad has the winning mentality and the natural skill and horsemanship to make it all the way to the top.
Today’s rides and our suggested bets are…
3:30 Beverley MAIFALKI 15/2 widely available won over hurdles latest and still looks well treated on the flat the danger comes in DETACHMENT at 7/2 a reverse forecast is also advised.
5:00 Beverley EXTRA SOLAR 9/2 widely available this is the easiest race the horse has contested for a long time and is very well weighted if returning to form running off 58 today this horse was running off 86 at the high of his career.I think this represents a great chance for Mark to bag another winner today. Both selections should also be covered in an each way double.
Don\’t forget to keep an eye out for this lad like I say I haven’t seen a young jockey with this much talent since William Buick came on the seen I think there I see something special about this one.
