  • Another no bet day which is a bit of a surprise but I would rather watch and analysis.

     

    Towcester

     

    3.20 Champion Chase has a first time tongue tie on today, he takes a drop in trip around a stiff course and looks to have a really good chance, all reflected in his price. There is no doubt he has been a bit disappointing but he has also been dropped a couple of pounds so it all helps. Sulamani The Late has been running well of late and I think the track will suit him as he probably prefers horses coming back to him, he hasn’t looked the most determined in a finish and Towcester often suits that type of horse. Londonia is a funny one, he is well capable and has gone well fresh, the race he won last season was a similar type, the omitted the hurdles up the straight so whether that confused him into winning or whatever, he is capable if difficult to expect a win. Moscow Me could also go well as he may get an easy lead, he was 3rd over CD last time in a better race and the front two didn’t pull any further away from him once that had gone past, he should find one or two a bit quicker than him but he should be thereabouts and is an each-way price.

     

    4.20 Kayla is tough and there should be more to come from her, she should have benefitted from a recent run and handles the track well. She is closely matched with Horace Hazel on collateral form, I have no doubt HH is a more talented horse but he has his own ideas. He is capable fresh and the blinkers are retained. With the betting generally 2/1 each of two I didn’t seen any edge, Kayla if it comes down to a battle but it isn’t a two horse race.

     

    Sedgefield

     

    7.00 Vodka Wells remains well handicapped and probably over did the front running at Kelso, he has since ran well at Wetherby when a mistake and a slipped saddle at the 2nd last cost him, I don’t think he would have won and he has almost got the snatching “defeat from the jaws of victory” of to a fine art. He once again looks to have a big chance tonight 2/1 makes no appeal with his overall record but I wouldn’t be a layer either. Chestnut Ben remains in form and very consistent, only 2lbs higher than his latest romp and this looks a 0-120 in name only.
