A very Happy New Year to you all.
BIG RACE PREVIEWS
Perfect Candidate – 1 point win – 4/1 (general) WON
4s seemed fair enough for a horse horse who has run very well in his last two races, both at this track and on paper both a far bit more competitive than this. Unlike a few in here he looks sure to give his running, if handling the ground. He does have winning form in very soft and it should be ok. This trip, in this ground, may be ideal and he should keep plugging away near the end, hopefully out-staying them all up the hill. Alternatiff has a favourites chance but will need to step up on that last run, which he is entitled to do. The rest have quite a few questions to answer for one reason or another.
Singlefarmpayment – 1 point win – 8/1 (bet365/WH) WON 9/2
Batavir – 1 point win – 9/1 (general) UP
I have previewed this for The Daily Punt Blog, including stats/trends etc so look out for that in the next hour or so.
That is all on the ‘tipping’ front for today. I had a look at the 1.55 but in truth I have always struggled a bit in those intermediate chases, 2m4f or so. The thought of going through it this morning wasnt enticing so I have left it. I hope Little Jon runs a good race, having backed him LTO. He slithered on landing early in that when in a decent position. His jumping is now a concern – well it has always been around here – and while minded to give him one last go I decided against it. If he jumps round error free he should out run his odds. There is also a ‘January’ trainer qualifier in this race which I have backed…
I am a bit behind on my ‘January’ research for one reason or another and I will have a good look asap. However, there is one trainer that I have researched a few weeks ago for Jan/Feb and he is ready to go. I will publish the stats etc in due course but for now the horse..
