Full thanks to Cairnzy for stepping in yesterday, and it was nice to see him get a winner with Ginto, who looks a very interesting horse whenever they decide to step him up in trip. Today's racing doesn't look too great, so just the two selections from me.
Mind Sunday will be a short price favourite, but I think she can be taken on with the hurdles debutante from the Dan Skelton yard, SIGNAL POINT. This horse has some decent form from the bumper races she has contested, and I think it's an interesting take that connections have put her up in trip to 2m 4.5f on her first start over obstacles, as based on those runs, it looks like it will be suited. Her last two runs in bumpers suggested that she is a strong stayer, and wasn't going to be suited by bumper races, as more often than not, those races aren't a real test of stamina, and she didn't seem to have the turn of foot needed to go against some of the better bumper horses. She was given a weird ride last time out, positioned last and travelled wide, but still managed to pick off some horses to grab 6th in a Class 1 Listed bumper. Mind Sunday brings a decent level of form into this race, and can be excused for her poor run last time out, however, she is far from bulletproof, and a chance can be taken on Signal Point for a yard who do well at this track.
Broadway Joe is going to be a tough horse to beat in this race, as I was on the receiving end of his latest win, where he did it in impressive fashion. He has been put up 10lbs for that performance, and now he is against some better and unexposed horses, that could stop his winning streak. KAKAMORA was a horse I tipped up on his chase debut, and for most of the race he travelled like the most likeliest winner, but it was quite apparent that he was in need of the run as he slowed down very drastically, looking like a horse who had a small amount of fitness. He's not been seen since mid December, so will be much fitter now, and the fact that Tom George sends him up to Scotland to contest this race is interesting as it is quite a trek for him to come. The form of that race which he contested last time at Wincanton has a strong feel to it, with the runner-up winning a nice handicap at Kempton on Boxing day, and the winner looks like he could follow up. A mark of 127 for this lad looks workable, and it would be a surprise to see him not going close.
