A cracking day for Members on Wednesday, as all three advised bets win.
Members were advised…….
12.30 Bangor – Yggdrasil – 10/3 William Hill, generally 11/4 or 5/2
Result: WON 11/4One of our Ten To Follow horses who’s on a potentially lenient mark and is of interest now switching racing in handicap company and switching to the larger obstacles. The showed a good deal of promise last season in just 3 outings and really stepped forward on his debut this season. A fine 2nd to a classy type from the Paul Nicholls yard who himself holds entries at Cheltenham this weekend. Surprisingly Yggdrassil was dropped a couple of pounds for that run and with his 4yo allowance races off bottom weight here. Respect for the progressive Do It For Thy Sen, but Yggdrassil makes plenty of appeal.
Ten To Follow Comments:Yggdrasil, Trained by Nick Williams Could be a bit of a dark horse this season, off a pretty low mark of 117 following just 3 runs over hurdles as a 4yo. He showed a fair degree of promise first time out at Sandown behind Elham Valley who subsequently ran 3rd in the Boodles at Cheltenham, and Hudson De Grugy who won his next 2 races. Yggdrasil was well beaten on his 2 subsequent starts, but the first of those was behind the classy Adagio at Grade 1 level and his final run was in really heavy ground at Exeter. Yggdrasil is a half brother to Siruh Du lac who improved leaps and bounds when sent over fences, so it’ll be interesting to see how he’s campaigned this coming season, but he’s an interesting horse off a pretty low rating.
1.00 Bangor – The Glancing Queen – 13/8 William Hill, generally 11/8
Result: WON 5/4Proved to be a pretty classy hurdler last season, winning twice and running very well behind some high class opposition in Bravemansgame and Wilde About Oscar, before an excellent run at the Cheltenham Festival. 5th in the Mare Novice Hurdle, she was the best of the home trained runner, finishing in amongst a whole host of Irish raiders. The form has a very solid look to it, she has the size and scope for chasing and has reportedly schooled well over fences, she looks the one to beat.
7.00 Kempton – Candleford – Generally 5/4
Result: WON 5/6Ran a good deal better than his last run suggests, despite being beaten less than 2 lengths, as he wasn’t suited by the slow pace that day and finished off best of all. His previous 3rd at Newmarket reads very well, with the 2nd subsequently winning the November handicap at Doncaster and Candleford takes on a field of more exposed older horses here, whereas he still has a good deal of improvement to come.
