The latest selections
Treasured Company 1pt win only 15/2 (245 Hexham) – Looked in need of the run on reappearance from a 7 month lay off last time out and should be much fitter for that run. Eased slightly in the weights here and drops in grade slightly, so if able to cope with this slightly longer trip should go close. Has finished off his races strongly in the past hinting that the trip could suit. Yard go well here and have a record of 6 from 20 in the last 12 months for a 30% strike with a LSP of +44
For Jim 1pt win only 10/1 (320 Hexham) – A 3 times CD winner who is yet to fire in two outings since returning from a break. As a result he now finds himself returning to his favourite stomping ground some 4lb below his last winning mark. If the return to Hexham can spark about a revival then he should be able to outrun these odds here. Yard are 11 from 46 here over the last 5 years for a 24% strike. Visor that has been the key in the past for this one is now back on in place of the cheekpieces.
Piecederesistance 0.5pt EW 50/1 4 places PP (415 Pontefract) – Not set the world on fire in two starts since joining this yard but is of more interest now back on the flat and down in trip. Had some fairly decent form for A Fabre over in France and is no forlorn hope here.
Byron Hill 0.5pt EW 16/1 (515 Pontefract) – Dual winner last term for Charlie Fellowes and was likely in need of the run when making reappearance from 246 days off for new yard. Back on his last winning mark and has to be considered to continue that progress with that run under the belt. Has run above this level and hopefully will get these extra couple of furlongs on what looks like a perfect surface for this one today
Approachability 1pt win only 4/1 (545 Pontefract) – Restless before the off and very awkwardly away following an 8 month break last time out. Completely blew his chances that day and will hopefully get away on terms here back at a track where he has performed well. Won here on debut and was placed in a listed race back here in October in a race that has worked out pretty strongly since. Gets a huge weight for age allowance today and should be ahead of this current mark. Mythical 50/1 is an interesting EW angle with some companies offering 3 places having joined a yard that do well in these types of races from the O Brien yards.
Million Thanks 1pt win only 9/2 (615 Pontefract) – Progressive sort who made a winning return to action following a wind op and 196 days off the track. Followed that up with a good 4th in a strong looking race at Haydock last time out and is open to more improvement today back on quick ground.
Manigordo 0.5pt EW 20/1 5 places (645 Pontefract) – Starting to look well treated on last years form and has been running creditably well coming into this. Yard have been finding a few recently and todays jockey Paul Hanagan will have a point to prove having lost his retention and now operating freelance.
Dee See Are £10 win only 15/2 Skybet money back if 2nd or 3rd offer (345 Pontefract) – Karl Burke has won the previous 2 running’s of this race and he sends 3 today to try and make it a hat trick. We have all seen this week how lethal this yard can be with a newcomer and the selection is very well bred for connections and looks the more obvious of his two debutants to go in at the first time of asking.
