The latest selections
Broken Halo 1pt win only 5/1 (211 Aintree) – Very lightly raced 7 y o who holds bags of potential off of this current mark for the champion trainer. Won 2 from 4 last term switched to these bigger obstacles and did so in very good style on both occasions. Will no doubt have improved over the break and comes here with his yard on fire having won 16 races in the last 14 days with a 39% strike over that period. Yard also hold a good record in this race with 3 winners in the last 9 runnings.
Dalyotin 1pt win only 7/1 (143 Kelso) – French import who following a couple of lesser runs over hurdles, opened his account in very impressive style switched back to the bigger obstacles. Will need to be fit after the break and has a 7lb rise to contend with on reappearance but holds plenty of potential for improvement and this doesn’t look a particularly strong race. Brian Hughes takes over in the saddle and he has a 35% strike rate for the yard in the last 12 months, one of the stand out stats for the day.
You Some Boy 0.5pt EW 18/1 4places B365 (324 Kelso) – Completed a hat trick last season but came a little unstuck when hiked in the weights markedly following the successes. Returns to action eased a couple of lb’s and with plenty of potential for improvement and could not be ruled out for a very good yard in these parts. Today’s 5lb claimer offsets much of the weight rise from last term and today’s conditions will play to his strengths, might want further however so EW play looks the safe bet.
Ratfacemcdougall 0.5pt EW 20/1 (218 Kelso) – Has plenty to prove having lost his way last term at Fergal O Brien’s yard having gone there during his merger with G McPherson. Has moved now to D Jeffreys who are well affiliated with his owners and hopefully the switch will spark a revival. Gets the blinkers re applied that have had plenty of success and will have few excuses with conditions looking near perfect and now going from 15lb below his last winning mark.
