The latest selections
Nnb: Kim Eyre 1pt win only 12/1 (325 Ffos Las) – Points winner who has run to a fair level over hurdles to date but rates of far more interest now sent over the bigger obstacles for the first time. Looks bred to be a chaser and looks open to bags of progress today. Mark looks a lenient one now entering the discipline she was bred for but she will want further in time.
Iwac: Zihuatanejo 1pt win only 12/1 (345 Newcastle) – A very lightly raced 9 year old who put in a very pleasing run on chase debut last time out. Has been eased a little in the weights for today’s race and will be entitled to have come on for that run after 205 days off. Not ruled out at a tasty price.
Nap: Learnalot 1pt win only 6/1 (410 Lingfield) – Consistent performer at a pretty decent level as a novice and ran very well last time out on handicap debut from today’s mark in a race that is starting to work out pretty well. On that evidence today’s mark looks a winning one for this bright prospect from a yard that is very much in form. Yard have done well here in the last 12 months and anything they send out with Sean Bowen on board needs taking seriously.
Issar D’Airy 1pt win only 14/1 (335 Lingfield) – Bit of a chancy one that will need to show far more than he has to date to get involved today. That said however this one would of hated the testing ground when stepped up in trip last time out and is worth another try here on more suitable conditions. Has been eased 6lb at the weights and would be foolish to write off for a shrewd yard going well at present who hold a great record around here.
Nb: Charles Ritz 1pt win only 14/1 (250 Ffos Las) – Fifth under a penalty in a very good Ascot novice event when last seen 12 months ago. That run came following a very nice looking win on debut when beating a two time subsequent winner from a decent stable. The race at Ascot has started to turn out a few very nice looking winners and if today’s selection is fit from his break then today’s opening mark should not be beyond him. Jazz King also looks to hold bags of potential for improvement today.
Wind Tor 0.5pt EW 25/1 (4 places Skybet) (215 Ffos Las) – A very lightly raced 11 year old who was faced with an inadequate trip last time out returning from 250 days off the track. Will be up against it from a win perspective but is certainly weighted to go close now going back up in trip. Won a similar event from 2lb higher last term and could well give the market principals something to think about here. A race full of potential improvers however so we go EW 4 places.
