Monatomic to prove the bomb!

Market Movers are proving real money spinners in Ireland and on the mainland. The race provided yesterday saw a Gordon Elliott trained runner that was 14/1 backed into 5/4, before winning cosily.

Today just one race from Leopardstown.

4.15 Leopardstown

A valuable Grade B handicap chase worth €50,000. A disappointing turn out with just 8 runners declared to go to post.
MONATOMIC is a 6-y-o gelded son of the very exciting sire Arcadio, who has already produced very decent chasers including Go Conquer and The Game Changer.
Owned by the all conquering combination of Gigginstown/Gordon Elliott. The trainer at the time of writing has an impressive strike rate of 20% (12 winners/61 runners in the past 14 days).
Stable no.1 jockey Jack Kennedy appears to have gone for the stablemate and questionable stayer at this trip called Dakota Moirette. That may mean a point or two bigger can be added to the selection here.
A steady improver since his last fence fall at Tramore at the start of the jump season at Tramore in October 2018, when having the race at his mercy only to fall at the last fence in a 2 mile novice chase.
Average enough on his proceeding four runs in chases of different codes, novice, beginners handicap and a novice with form figures of 2-2-3-5. Showed a great battling attitude three runs back at Down Royal in a 2 mile rated novice chase, when was strongly pressed and headed briefly before battling back, to win a touch cosily, by 1.5 lengths from the highly progressive Peacocks Secret.
 
Ran a stormer of a race just 7 days ago at Naas in a similar Grade B handicap chase over 2 miles and 4 furlongs. The slight increase in distance, to 2 miles 5 and 1/2 furlongs is sure to suit. Denis O ‘Reagan came in for the ride last weekend and an almighty strange ride was given. The heart tells me the type of ride was because as trainer Elliot has said before about him ”doesn’t do a lot when you let go of him”. The head says that the horse was relatively unfancied 14-1 shot and the jockey was told there will be other days,regardless of how well it ran last weekend. The horse was tanking along in the first 3/4 horses five fences out and between the 5th last fence, and 4th last fence. O ‘Reagan seemed to take a pull of the reigns, very quickly tanked back up and went very wide turning into the home straight, 4/5 horses deep, eventually unable to match the finishing kick of the highly progressive winner Poker Party (beaten 2 lengths and getting 3 lb), who has gone up 10lb for that win to a mark of 138.
The 2 finished clear of some consistent and progressive sorts in Stowaway ForeverKildorrery and Impact Factor. Lost very little in defeat and a 5 lb raise is more than fair.
O’Reagan will probably have to hold onto him as long as he can and if executing the ride to perfection, as he often does on hold-up horses, may take a bit of beating.
The race itself looks extremely weak for the grade. Jett was well beaten in this race before on a similar mark. Woods Well needs further and is not well handicapped. Ask Nile is seriously struggling off his current mark of 129 and will need to drop a few pounds to win again. Teacher’s Pet was well beaten in this race last year off a slighly lower mark. Stablemate Dakota Moirette looks a very doubtful stayer and it’s last victory was 14 runs ago in a 2 mile maiden hurdle. The bottom two in the handicap, Kylekrue and Capture The Drama, will ensure a truly run race as both are confirmed front runners. However both are ageing veterans at 12 and 11 respectively.
Monatomic is a fairly confident selection, seems ground versatile and hopefully the jumping holds together and is worthy of a strong bet here.
Recommended Stakes:
1 pt win Monatomic @ 3-1 (General)
