Saturday is a decent day of racing filled with some extremely competitive races. Hopefully between myself and Rizzel we can pull a few winner selections together.
Apologies in advance that todays selections weren’t posted the night before to allow you to take advantage of any prices. I was caught up with work and simply didn’t have time to get them up last night.
This little race is competitive and had me going back and forth between Defi De Seuil and Mister Fisher and I finally opted for Mister Fisher.
Defi looked completely out of sorts in his previous few races and on his old form wins this easily but I’m not willing to take the risk that’ll he will bounce back.
I think this race looks a great opportunity for Mister Fisher to return to winning ways. With a field of only 4 that of course increases his chances even further.
The drop back in trip and drop on grade all fall into his favour and if the ground dries that’ll again improve his chances.
Rouge Vif runs over 2m and is untested at this sort of trip and not totally convinced it’ll suit although he does get 6lb from my selection.
I’m really looking forward to this race and have decided to go for two selections. Jerrysback each way and Corach Rambler to place.
I really like this Corach Rambler for Lucinda Russell. It’s worth noting that she's only had one runner in this race in the last 10 years. That entry was her Grand National winner One For Arthur who actually won this back in 2017.
So the fact she sends Corach to contend this tells me she of course fancies her chances. I really like the way in which he went about his last two wins at Aintree and Cheltenham, both tough tracks, and he did it quite easily. One of those wins he carried a 7lb penalty.
He travels beautifully into his races but when he hits the front, as already mentioned by Rizzel, he hangs and wanders but I think that’ll be knocked on the head over time. I’ve decided to take what I think is the safer route and take him to place at 7/4 which I thought was still a great price.
For my each way selection I thought Jerrysback at 20/1 was a great bet. He can be very hit and miss depending on what sort of mood you get him in but when he’s there to race he’s a decent horse. The trip of 3m5f is worth a pop I think, given his staying on 3rd at Ascot last month. Aidan Coleman is on board and I think if he can get him settled he could outrun his odds of 20/1.
