ALAN had one winner from two yesterday – two of his bets were non-runners – and gets the week under way with picks from Wolverhampton and Taunton.
OH THIS IS US has wintered in Dubai in the past but has stayed on home shores to contest an interesting Conditions Stakes at Wolverhampton.
Richard Hannon’s six-year-old was last seen chasing home Ostilio in a Group 2 at Longchamp in October and has gone well in the past when returns from a long break.
Ryan Moore travels to the Midlands for this one mount and with front-runner Michele Strogoff lining up, there should be a good pace to attack. Hathal quickened nicely to score over course and distance four weeks ago and should go close.
If Taunton beats the weather SILVER QUAY is strongly fancied to defy a 10lb rise for his facile success over course and distance under today’s jockey Bryony Frost.
