The latest selections
NB: Ornate 1pt win only 12/1 (210 Southwell) – 3 wins and 3 placed efforts from 11 runs over CD and although recent form figures do not read that well this veteran can still have a hand to play back at this track. The surface here has changed since those wins but he put in a decent effort to finish just 3/4 length back in 4th at the end of January. That run came in a class 4 race from a mark of 82 and the return here today in a class 5 from 68 is too tempting to leave alone. Decent draw too.
IWAC: Nick Lost 1pt win only 11/1 (214 Cartmel) – Fairly useful sort for H De Bromhead but has not been seen up to the same level since leaving there. Has changed hands again since then and offered a little more encouragement for new yard last time out. Still has plenty to prove but should fare better now back up in trip on decent ground. Yard likes a winner here and it would be no surprise to see this one bounce back to form today. Yard also hold excellent chances with Seddon (3.59 Cartmel)
NAP: Our Sam 1pt win only 11/1 (510 Cartmel) – Lightly raced and still very unexposed. Slightly disappointing over CD last time out on handicap debut but ought to be capable of better as he had shown in a previous run also over CD. Current mark seems a little high but looks the sort that this yard do well with and has to be respected in the hands of Charlotte Jones given her record up North for this shrewd outfit. She has around a 20% strike from over 200 runners for the yard and a very impressive LSP of +214 when riding for them. She is also 12 wins and 5 placed from 30 at the track in the last 12 months for a 40% strike which is very hard to ignore.
LONGSHOT: Craic At Dawn 1pt win only 16/1 (331 Chepstow) – Well beaten on both starts for his new yard this term and a change of fortune is needed. Gets the application of blinkers for the first time and in steps Hollie Doyle to take the ride. The other horse we like the chance of in this race was Afta Party who we would imagine Hollie would have had the options on so interesting then to see her take this ride. Bit of a wildcard but worth a chance at huge odds.
LONGSHOT: Furzig 0.5pt EW 22/1 4places B365 (350 Epsom) – A 3 times winner last term who is yet to fire this term. Today’s assignment looks much easier than recent ones and from a mark that is 6lb lower than his last win back in September we have to take a chance. Was not beaten far at Ripon 2 runs back and could well get back on track in this very winnable contest.
