2.30 Newbury – Gowell Road – WON 5/2 (Adv 9/2) *r4

Steps into handicap company after just two runs, having shown a lot of promise on both his races to date, both of which have worked out really well. A good 2nd to Bear Ghylls on debut, who then won a handicap easily off a mark of 130. Gowel Road ran a fine 4th here at […]

1.15 Warwick – Sky Pirate – WON 6/4

Really surprised to see Sky Pirate available at Odds Against today, so we feel we have to advise him as a bet. A hugely talented horse, he’d always been considered one that hadn’t delivered on what he promised, as he travels through his races supremely well, but wasn’t finishing off his races. He’d always been […]

3.10 Chepstow – Secret Reprieve – WON 5/2 (Adv 4/1)

Lightly raced and still open to plenty of improvement, whilst the handicapper has yet to catch up with him. With this being an early closing race he picked up a 4lb penalty for winning last time and is 8lbs well in, as he’s been raised 12lb for bolting up last time. He’d previously been a […]

2.25 Sandown – Metier – WON 7/4

A slightly below par Tolworth Hurdle and Metier is taken to land the hattrick following a very promising start to his hurdles career. A decent performer on the flat in Ireland, he bolted up on his hurdles debut at Newton Abbot, before winning again in style at Ascot. He has a high cruising speed, is […]

3.05 Musselburgh – Romain De Senam – WON 13/2

A notebook horse from 2 runs back, and unlucky to have been brought down at Cheltenham last time; this looks a fair easier task and one he’s more than capable of winning. He’s dropped to a very appealing handicap mark, when you consider he bolted up at Newton Abbott last year off a mark of […]

1.45 Doncaster – Annie MC – WON 11/4 (Adv 11/2)

A really good Mares race, where Annie MC makes plenty of appeal having contested a couple of extremely competitive handicaps on her two starts this season. Very progressive when switched to fences last season when winning 3 times and showing a liking for a soft surface, she found the March Chase at Cheltenham a step […]

1.10 Newbury – St Barts – WON 6/4 (Adv 7/4)

A lightly raced progressive horse, who looks potentially well ahead of his mark and is open to a good deal of further progression now sent over the larger obstacles. A point to point winner, he ran well in a couple of novice hurdles before winning on handicap debut in impressive fashion in deep ground as […]

1.50 Cheltenham – Mister Fisher – WON 9/2

A flop last time on the Paddy Power Gold Cup, which was run in very deep and unsuitable ground; but it may be the fact of a big field that was also his undoing last time. The only times he’s really disappointed have all been when racing in big fields, whilst his better efforts have […]

12.05 – Happygolucky – WON 13/8 (Adv 2/1)

A progressive hurdler last season, finishing his year with an excellent 4th in the competitive Martin Pipe Hurdle at the Festival, which was his 2nd run at this track, both of those being very good efforts. He’s a big robust horse who looks all over a chaser. A winner on his debut over the larger […]

1.57 Chepstow – Secret Reprieve – WON 5/1

A notebook from Haydock and whilst his fall was a fair way out to really tell how well he’d have run, he looked to be doing everything very easily on what was his first run in handicap company. He’s proven on soft ground and off a nice racing weight with the stable hitting form should […]
