PACAFI (17th March 2017)

Fabulous debut, certain to come on and extra furlong to suit!

Here And Now made a promising start when runner-up over 1m3f at Kempton last month when not fancied and at one stage we thought he would win his debut. He was less than a length ahead of Balashakh but given it was a first run there is no reason why he should not improve beyond that one and confirm superiority. This Derby entry who is out of Oaks winner Look Here and half-brother to Hereawi (won twice at 1m 2f and 1m 6f), settled on the inner racing nicely and was only just run out of it by a more experienced rival. He looked a certain winner next time out and the extra furlong can only help.

Of his rivals

Balashakh is improving and so is Born Legend who has a shout stepping up in trip after a close-up third over 1m2f here while Temir Kazyk should also appreciate the longer trip and may well improve past Indian Red.

Trainer and Jockey Form

Trainer Ralph Beckett has his horses well and in February he raced 12 horses and scored wins 5 times for 42% and a level stake profit of +5.80pts. March is showing 1 win from 3 and 33% and -0.63pts. He runs two today, one at Lingfield and the other at Wolverhampton and both could win with Fran Berry in the saddle. In a general sense we feel the jockey is yet to get going with Beckett but still records 27-159 rides for 17%. The 2yos massively improve his statistics with 13-51 for 25% and +23.71pts and this season we will be keeping an eye on the juveniles. Anyway a win double beckons though only Here And Now qualified for the Pacafi.

Beckett smashes previous best!

We are conscious that Ralph Beckett smashed his previous best of 80 wins in 2015 with 101 for 2016 though not much of an increase in prize money but if you backed every runner of Beckett's last year you would have made a profit of +7.83pts. This could be a good year for Fran Berry if he rides the majority of the stables winners and gets some good outside bookings as well.

Timeform Comments

HERE AND NOW shaped with a deal of promise when runner-up on last month's debut at Kempton and a maiden win should be a formality on that evidence. The David Simock trained pair Balashakh and Temir Kazyk are promising in their own right.

Today's Pacafi: Here And Now 2.25 Lingfield at 19/20 (Betbright) and 10/11 generally (05.13). 1pt win advised.
