Rose Dobbin-trained Caerlaverock showed his return to form last time and go on to win the Kids Go Free At Berwick Speedway Handicap at 3.30 Kelso today.
The nine-year-old produced a much improved display when finishing second to Boris The Blade at Sedgefield last month and the form was franked when winner followed up with a victory at Hexham a fortnight later.
Caerlaverock has shown some promise in a spring campaign as a novice, winning at Sedgefield and putting up two decent performances to finish second in his next two races. He was absent for two years before being brought back in November and struggled to make an impact in three runs over the winter. However a two month break and the warmer weather seem to be to his liking and he looked a future winner when making smooth progress through the field to finish two lengths behind his Sedgefield victor on 2nd March.
Running off bottom weight with 10st 11lbs, Dobbin’s charge looks ready to make a return to the winner’s enclosure at decent odds of 11/2 with BetVictor.
