Saturday’s Selections from #Cheltenham #Doncaster #Uttoxeter

The latest selections

Gold Emery 1pt win only 9/2 (307 Uttoxeter) – Winning Irish pointer who has made a very pleasing start under rules. Looks bred for these bigger obstacles and looks absolutely thrown in on his Chasing debut. Ran very well under a penalty on his return from 304 days off and this looks a perfect opportunity to kick on for a yard that have done well here in recent years. Their record here in the last 12 month reads 11 wins and 5 placed from 35 for a 31% strike with a LSP of +60. Yard have 4 runners on the card and could be in for a good day.

Eyeofthescorpion 1pt win only 13/2 (350 Doncaster) – A very consistent performer over hurdles but was disappointing when pulling up on his chase debut last time out. From a very smart yard who give him another chance here. Has been eased a couple of pounds coming into what looks a more realistic target and gets better ground today over this slightly longer trip, both factors should certainly help the cause. Yards record here is a good one and they send just this one today. They also come here in great form.

Cloth Cap 1pt win only 10/1 (315 Doncaster) – A top class stayer on his best form but has a bit to prove coming into this. Reportedly bled having puled up in the Grand National but has returned to action with a couple of pleasing runs this term. Most recently he was not beaten far in 6th in the Becher chase 56 days ago. Has fallen down the weights considerably and is the mount of Brian Hughes today who hops off of Windsor Castle the horse which he won this race on last year, who despite being very inconsistent of late holds excellent EW chances on best form today.

Keepyourdreamsbig 1pt win only 7/1 (1255 Doncaster) – Has run well in two starts over fences for this yard since returning to action but goes back over hurdles today stepped up in trip for the first time. A move which doesn’t look an obvious one but i can see why they have done it given he goes here from a mark which looks a good few pounds well in. Longer trip should suit given how he has stayed on in a couple of races and his 4th in a Listed race at Wetherby for his previous yard puts him well in this race.

Silver Hallmark 1pt win only 16/1 (150 Cheltenham) – Very lightly raced for a 9 year old and will be more than capable of picking up races of this magnitude on a going day. Doesn’t have a massive amount to find with today’s favourite, Fugitif on their race at Chepstow and opposes here today some 13lb better off for the in form Fergal O Brien.

Dusart £10 or 2 pt win only 16/1 (skybet money back offer) (225 Cheltenham) – A very promising novice who has made up into a very good chaser for Nicky Henderson winning 3 of his 4 starts over fences so far. Not much can be drawn from his return to action over hurdles given he was returning from wind surgery but i think a surprise could be on the cards today should last years winning trainer have this one just right for this race.

Allmankind 0.5pt EW 80/1 (6places PP) (150 Cheltenham) – Bit of a stab in the dark for one who has clearly lost his way somewhat. Won the Old Roan Chase back in 2021 from a mark of 160 and goes now from 149 so any sort of revival could have him picking up a place. Still only 7 years old but does appear to have fell out of love with the sport.

Martator 0.5pt EW 40/1 (5 places B365) (410 Cheltenham) – A grade 1 placed horse over in France before joining Venetia Williams and will be entitled to improve plenty for his yard debut disappointment. Was returning from a year off the track that day having undergone wind surgery and looked far to keen out in front in what is looking to be turning into a pretty hot race. This will be no easier however and this run should reveal more about this ones true potential.
