GLOBEFORM'S GREAT 9-1 VALUE BET,
PEGASUS DAY SPECIAL - GULFSTREAM PARK


How Pegasus World Cup Turf winner Bricks and Mortar, who paid just
5-2 on course, was recommended as our best early value bet at 9-1 a week out:

GLOBEFORM VALUE BET – PEGASUS WORLD CUP DAY

BRICKS AND MORTAR 9-1 / Pegasus World Cup Turf

This Chad Brown trainee is way too big at 9-1 (William Hill, Coral and Sportingbet).


A really smart 3yo in 2017, he came back after a long layoff running over a mile at this venue in December, and was a solid – visually impressive – winner of a stakes calibre allowance heat. Coming from off the pace, in a race that was run at what could be called a normal tempo, Bricks and Mortar moved up to Mr Cub (who had the run of the race) in the closing stages, and beat him snugly by half a length. Full of energy passing the winning post, Bricks and Mortar had more in hand – he was value for another length or so.


Bricks and Mortar ran to Globeform 114p on this return, having returned GF 113p when beating Yoshida easily (and going away at the finish) in the Hall of Fame at Saratoga in 2017. He will need to improve a two or three lengths to win the Pegasus Turf, but that is quite likely to happen. He has plenty going for him; he is open to improvement, he will appreciate the 9.5-furlong trip, he has had a perfect prep over the track, and he has the powerful Chad Brown / Irad Ortiz Jr in his corner.


The son of Giant's Causway breezed at Gulfstream on Friday, clocking 59.5 over 5 furlongs on the lawn while nicely in hand – he worked with zest. He is not a high profile horse if we look at the races he has been running in, compared to the likes of Yoshida, Channel Maker and Japanese filly Aerolithe – but he is sure to be popular amongst local tipsters leading up to the big day. 9-1 is unlikely to last. An obvious EW bet. (19 Jan 19)
