DAN GUN (11.25) can make it first blood to Dan Skelton in the opening 2m 3f handicap hurdle at Bangor, the gelding bidding to supplement his Stratford victory 19 days ago.

Dan Gun is up 9lb but scored twice off this sort of mark for previous trainer Fergal O’Brien. Reigning champion Brian Hughes gets the leg up on the Nicky Richards-trained mare Rubytwo, not without a chance as her official rating continues to drop.

It should be Skelton to the fore once again in the 2m 4f handicap chase, this time aboard DOG OF WAR (1.25). The seven-year-old took time to warm to his task at Exeter 11 days ago, eventually powering through late to master Hazzaar on his favoured good to firm ground. Hughes may have to play second fiddle aboard Market Rasen winner Armattiekan, with Tom George’s course and distance winner Tribesmans Glory in the mix as well.

There is also an early start at Thirsk and MOTAKHAYYEL (2.10) is of interest in the 7f Conditions Stakes later on the card. Richard Hannon’s five-year-old has won twice on his return from long absences so might be one to catch fresh. Toro Strike is probably the one to beat in receipt of 4lb.

GEORGE PEABODY (2.40) is fancied to follow up his clear-cut success at last month’s Doncaster Lincoln meeting. George Scott has a nice prospect on his hands and George Peabody can defy a penalty in the one-mile novice stakes. Previous winner Invincible Swagger also carries a penalty and Roger Varian’s Kempton scorer will have his supporters.

At Nottingham, KALMA (5.45) should go off at decent odds under Tom Queally in the Class 6 handicap over 1m 2f. The Alan King-trained filly was an unconsidered 28-1 shot on her comeback run at Wolverhampton but caught the eye staying on into fourth behind Spirit Of Rowdown.

Kalma finished more than three lengths in front of sixth-placed Blu Boy and that horse destroyed his rivals at Newcastle on Thursday evening. Easy Chelmsford City nursery winner Eagles Dare is rated a danger, with Oisin Murphy a notable booking.

    Well done the winners today and first 2 down in my Yankee1 of which was a single but it’s a while before these 2.

    Back home and explanations for my picks after Exact starting of disappointing but he wasn’t a single and bet accordingly of course!

    Kneeland-R9…Speech
    last seen finishing 6l behind Gamine at Breeders Cup who came out and walked it last month and this trainer has a good record with horses from a break,admittedly I don’t think I’ve heard of the jockey so hopefully a steering job and been hammered to 6/4

    Kneeland-R8…Senora Roma. 5/1(*****)
    Brave for a 5 star bet but so impressive in his last run in a race that’s on par with this I think it’s just Wesley Wards horse and this slightly smaller stable being overlooked.

    Well dine the winners and onwards to tomorrow

    • dazzman1979 4 weeks ago

  14. edgeman 4 weeks ago

    Nice early winner for AT with Dan Gun. I didn’t back it initially as I thought it was too short a price, but I got to watch the betting in running for once. Dan gun was held up at the rear and straight away pp dropped the price to 3/1. I jumped on because it was clearly not in trouble and just being held up. I’m gonna keep an eye on that on short price runners in future.
