Marino Looks A Marvellous Bet At Dundalk

Shuil Teacht Aniar was well backed last Sunday, but unfortunately the handbrake wasn’t let off. He was given one of the strangest rides I have ever seen by young Robinson, and at one stage he was a good 20L last. He stayed on strongly late on to finish 5th, but he was given far too much to do and his jockey’s reluctance to push him into the last few fences cost him dearly.
Dermot McLoughlin is a shrewd trainer.
It has been a quiet week this week, but we are back in action with a 33/1 each way fancy at Dundalk. Marino Marvel is a huge price in the 12f handicap at 21.00, but there is reason to believe he can do better back up in trip off a lower mark than last time. He stayed on well over 10f last time, and this lightly raced son of Kodiac looks sure to benefit over the extra distance on Friday.
Wayne Lordan took the ride last time, and he dropped Marino Marvel in at the back of the field. He switched him wide as they turned for home, and a couple of furlongs out he was nearer first than last. However, Marino Marvel responded to Lordan’s urgings in the final furlong and he stayed on well to finish a never nearer 8th, 6L behind the winner Ligeti and 4L behind Free State.
He takes Free State on again today, and he is 4lb better off with him I think he would have got closer to him over further, and yet back at 12f he is eight times the price of that rival. He is also 4lb better off with Queloz, who was 2L ahead of him, and all things considered I think Marino Marvel is overpriced at 33/1. He is worth chancing each way for small stakes in a winnable looking race.
