Treasure Time first Official Handicap Rating received

The three-year-old gelding I have a handful of shares in with Raceshare, Treasure Time, has been allocated his first Official Rating this morning following on from his fourth-placed finish at Newcastle on Sunday 12th May; his third start. His rating is 77.

I said on the Monday after the race I would expect somewhere in the 70’s to be what he would be allocated bearing in mind the form of the races he has run in and where some of those horses are now rated. Several from his debut run are rated in the 70’s and 80’s now, two over 100. Cynosure who he was ahead of at Kempton last back end is now rated in the 80’s and two others he was ahead at the Sunbury-on-Thames venue are in the 70’s. He had two rated 72 and 75 behind him at Newcastle. I thought somewhere in the low 70's would be a ‘workable’ rating for the team at Somerville Lodge to make plans around but I was not shocked he got 77; I was probably being a little greedy hoping for low 70’s.

Onwards and upwards as they say and I am very hopeful the son of Time Test can leave this mark well-behind as the season progresses. As I have mentioned before all four of his half-siblings are winners, all rated 80+ in their careers with two over 100; Badri a high of 104 and Equality as high as 110.

In the latest update from William Haggas and the team at Somerville Lodge they said "He’s come out of his run fine - he lost 12kgs (which is about average) - and we are looking ahead to handicaps next time.”

Update 21st May 2.30pm. 

Treasure Time has been given an entry at Yarmouth on Bank Holiday Monday, 27th May, in the 7f  Quinnbet Daily Free Bet Handicap (0-80) due off at 4.20. There are twenty-seven entered at the time of writing. 

Be lucky
