Wolf Sword (micro going – soft) WON 2/1>6/4
NOTE: Smith in form, 6/27,13 places last 14 days. 0/9,4p over fences but has been running ok and a repeat of that last run probably puts him thereabouts. Well found in the market at 2/1 which is too short for me personally but hopefully he goes in.
Special Wells (micro going – soft) UP
NOTE: Smith again. Horse has ran a bit better with each run this season and maybe on his 3rd start he may show more. 1/10,4p over fences he has the ability for a race like this- i am unsure whether he stays- I think not, but at the same time he hasn’t had that many goes beyond 2m4f in handicaps and I wouldn’t want to say he definitely cant. Today will tell us more I think and at 8s, I wouldn’t want to put you off. Is top 3 HRB ratings also.
Holbrook Park (hncp h) 2nd
Saint John Henry (micro distance) UP
NOTE: Holbrook… trainer 0/16,2p last 14 days. Horse is lightly raced and unexposed over hurdles so hard to rule out. Ran well enough to a point the last day and may come on for the run. Interesting jockey booking. The question is the heavy ground on the hurdles track – no idea if he will handle it. Ran ok in a bumper in heavy but that can be misleading. If he runs a shocker that may be the reason. If he handles it, he should run a decent race.
Saint John…Pipe 4/26,8p last 14 days. This distance winner and C3 winner is suited to conditions and he handles the ground no problem by the looks of it. He won on seasonal reapearance in 2014 and last year was pitched into a C2 on his return. Could be more to come this season and looks interesting enough. Possible he can lead as well if wanted. Will be up there in the right place anyway. Market may guide.
Rock My Style (NHF) (no ratings) UP
NOTE: trainer 2/16,5p last 14 days. Not much to go on but the market suggests he has a strong chance. It looks a tight race between three of them who all seem fancied to a point.
One Cool Scorpion (hncp h) UP
NOTE: Hobbs in form, 9/42,15p last 14 days. Horse seemingly unfancied at 33/1-40/1. Last two runs poor seemingly in conditions that should have suited, albeit may have needed the firt run. Poor LTO. Won over 24f so that can’t be an excuse. Does drop down in trip here but other than that not much else different is happening. Still lightly raced though and at that price I wouldn’t want to put you off. You never know.
Nothing more to add. Good luck however you play them.
