The latest selections
Mr PC 1pt win only 15/2 (223 Brighton) – Has run very well at this track without winning including 2 placed efforts from 2 attempts over CD. Has proven very difficult to win with but runs from a 5lb lower mark than when just touched off in this race last year. Tom Marquand is a very positive jockey booking and he boasts a great record at the track with 26 wins from 106 rides for a 24% strike and has a LSP of +£161 so is also very profitable to follow here.
Spirit Warning 1pt win only 12/1 (323 Brighton) – On a long losing run and showed very little in a couple of runs switched to this yard last term. Has been off the track for a year now however and returns wearing first time blinkers. Also drops back to a much more realistic trip today with conditions looking ideal. Mark has slid to a very attractive one and goes in the very capable hands of Charlie Bishop who boasts a LSP of +£45 around here.
Roman Dynasty 1pt win only 9/1 (453 Brighton) – Has been beaten on all 25 runs since his win on debut at Wolverhampton so clearly comes with risks attached today. That said he comes here with conditions looking perfect and from a mark that is some 30lb below his peak. Ran well here to finish 1 length 3rd from 11lb higher last term and has been freshened up for this. Running out of excuses and has to go close with everything in favour today.
Landing Strip 1pt win only 9/1 (526 Brighton) – Will need to improve for his switch to turf on handicap debut but there is plenty in the breeding to suggest this trip, track and going will be ideal today for a yard that boasts a 62% strike rate here in the last 12 months.
Didtheyleaveuoutto 1pt win only 7/1 (720 Hexham) – Was not beaten far in the Silver trophy for his previous yard back in November behind Knapper’s Hill. That race has worked out pretty strongly since and despite not running up to that since cannot be written off here. Put in a very pleasing run last time out at Pontefract to finish runner up and returns to hurdles today down in the weights, down in grade from that previously mentioned run and does so with his yard bang amongst the winners with 4 from 9 in the last 14 days.
Lord Caprio 1pt win only 12/1 (850 Hexham) – The second of two runners for the above mentioned Ben Haslam yard who has a little bit to prove having disappointed last time out. Was reported to have finished lame however on that occasion and has been given plenty of time to recover here. He is 2 wins and 3 placed runs from 7 over CD so clearly does his best work here and sits just 1lb above his last winning mark so has plenty in favour this evening.
Sammylou 1pt win only 16/1 (430 Huntingdon) – Produced a career best to win from a 4lb higher mark back in July but has not run up to that win in 4 runs since. Has been rested however and returns in the hands of a very talented 5lb claimer which puts this one on a very attractive mark for the very much in form F O Brien (10/34 for a 29% strike in last 14 days) yard who have a great record at the track (12/36 =33% strike at the track in last 12 months). Yard also run Ask A Honey Bee
