We had a short-priced winner yesterday in the form of Noble Anthem, who didn't win in the style of an eventual odds-on shot should, but a win is a win. I've picked out a couple of runners for Monday, hopefully they both run to form, which should take them close to winning.
I was on the receiving end of the progressive MYRISTICA last time out when I tipped up Freak Out at Beverley. I think the race panned out better for my selection today, but you can't get away from how impressive she was and the upward trend she appears to be going on.
She's had quite a lot of racing this season with this being her sixth start already, but when a filly is in form you have to believe she is still firing on all cylinders and is worth another chance. Tim Easterby wouldn't be risking her if she wasn't right, so the relatively quick turnaround isn't a concern for me. She has been raised 5lbs for her recent success, and that seems fair enough as she won with plenty in hand.
Ripon is a track that Tim Easterby and David Allan do extremely well at. David Allan has opted for Myristica over the stablemate, Fishable, which bodes well for her chances considering the latter is a multiple-course winner.
A horse who is arguably in the form of his life at the age of 11 is LORD BRYAN who has recently racked up his hat-trick, completing it in emphatic fashion and in the style of a horse who still might have more to give off an 8lb higher mark.
Even though this race is a tougher race with the likes of De Barley Basket coming into this with plenty of 1s next to his name, he is worth a shot against the favourite as he seems to enjoy this track and the good ground which should be on offer today.
Peter Bowen is in decent form this season with a 22% SR and Sean Bowen currently leading the Jockeys' Championship, he will be wanting to get as many winners as possible before heading into the proper start of the NH season.
