For this Saturdays racing action, Alan Thomson goes to Ascot for a strongly-fancied nap bet.

CALL ME LORD (2.40) was very lightly campaigned by Nicky Henderson last season and was last seen finishing third in the Imperial Cup at Sandown, conceding lumps of weights to Malaya and Monsieur Lecoq.

That two miles trip was too short and Call Me Lord was seen to even better effect when dishing out a 16 lengths thrashing to Lil Rockerfella over 2m 5f on an earlier Sandown visit. He can win Ascot's Coral Hurdle at the main expense of Roksana and If The Cap Fits, evenly matched on their running in the Ryanair Stayers’ Hurdle over three miles at Aintree last April. Roksana has the benefit of a run two weeks ago when beaten by Top Notch in a blanket finish.

BRISTOL DE MAI (3.00) is bidding to scoop his third Betfair Chase at Haydock and is worth a decent bet at odds-against. The grey has been imperious in this event, whipping Cue Card by 57 lengths on heavy in 2017 before repelling Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Native River 12 months ago. He gets the vote over rising star Lostintranslation, so impressive on his return at Carlisle, and popular Ryanair Chase winner Frodon.

WHOSHOTTHESHERIFF (1.45) makes appeal in the Betfair Exchange Handicap Hurdle. Formerly trained by Gordon Elliott, Whoshotthesheriff mopped up his first two novice events for Phil Kirby, at Sedgefield and Carlisle, before being pitched into a handicap at Cheltenham won by Benny’s Bridge. The gelding was still in the firing line when falling two out and this looks a tad easier. Paddy Power are going four places.

FIRST FLIGHT (6.40) is quite well treated in the claimer at Wolverhampton. Brian Ellison's gelding has been a consistent performer this season and his latest third to Bo Samraan and Jabbaar in the Catterick mud was a respectable effort in the context of this weaker event. Stall four is a handy pitch and First Flight is likely to be ridden prominently over this shorter trip.

    Very much doubt Gowran will go ahead the rain weve had here.
    Inspection 8am.
    Still some great racing on.
    Just cant see Nicky risking Altior against Cyrname unless he is very confident. No bet for me but should answer a few questions.
    But if Altior does win then what price for KG ?
    BDM should take all the beating at Haydock.
    So glad the NH is back in full flow now.

    • recoba 1 year ago

      Aye good racing today DC. The races you’ve mentioned will just be a watch for me although I think BDM will take all the beating but I’m glad with a few beers down me last night I didn’t lump on. lol
      See Oor Elvis is keen on Lost In Translation.

      GL today gents

  10. 1 year ago

    was meant to put up earlier, not a nailed on pick but i bet on this horse when withdrawn last time, done okay at this distance, but better over a furlong less i think, split your stake in the place market to cover although it’s top 4 for 8/11
