The latest selections
Jacks A Legend 1pt win only 6/1 (204 Fontwell) – Not been seen in the best light on his last couple of runs but has a piece of form at Newbury back in December that would make a mockery of this race. On that form he looks to be a good 10lb well in here given his excellent 5lb claim and has little or no excuses today. This marks a big drop in class today too.
Tazka 0.5pt EW 18/1 4 places SkyBet (424 Fontwell) – Not seen at her best recently over inadequate trips and could fare much better upped markedly in distance and tackling 3 mile plus for the first time. Both wins have come at this track and the latest one from a 4lb higher mark had plenty of signs that todays trip could well play to her strengths. 3lb taken off by the yards claimer and conditions look perfect.
Tara Niece 1pt win only 12/1 (459 Fontwell) – Should be much sharper for her latest run following a 643 day lay off and could take a big step forward here today. Shaped as if retaining ability last time out and is taken to reverse the form with the re opposing winner that day The Height Of Fame with whom she is 12lb better off at the weights with now. Emma Lavelle sends just this one runner and Adam Wedge comes in to take just the one ride. Independance rates the main danger if able to cope with the step up in trip.
Newtown Boy 1pt win only 16/1 (322 Kelso) – Fourth in this race last term from 6lb higher mark and not been seen since that race. Has gone well fresh in the past however and yard certainly know how to get one ready. Up against some in form rivals today but a few are starting to look exposed and at these prices a small nibble has to be had. Trainer/Jockey combo are a profitable one to follow too so no forlorn hope as the markets would suggest.
Destrier 1pt win only 11/2 (331 Uttoxeter) – Got up to win on the line when upped in trip for the first time last time out in a race that looked perfect for his first attempt at the longer trip. Won in a head bob from the re opposing Barton Knoll and we fancy him to confirm that form here again today for the very much in form Dan Skelton who is 8 from 16 for a 50% strike in the last 14 days. Manofthemountain would be very dangerous if the recent wind op has the desired affect so keep an eye on the market for that one too. Selection still looks pretty well treated on old form.
