Ceara Be – 8.05 Aintree (12/1 – bet365)
After an incredible 751 day break, Ceara Be makes her return to action in a Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Aintree.
Alex Hales’ recruit has been dropped down 4lbs in the ratings since her last run back in April 2019, which is 1lb lower than her last winning mark.
The mare claimed success at a mark of 110 over the same distance at Fakenham back in January 2019, always just doing enough to claim success by a neck.
Her time off does produce a question mark on whether she’ll perform, but she has won in higher class company.
With a price of 12/1, Ceara Be could well sneak into the places on her return to racing here.
