Well no TJCs of interest today, and yesterday’s didn’t do much although the Honeyball runner went well and maybe one to watch NTO. Many of his with that profile can be punted off the boards but he wasn’t, staying steady around 8/1- looked likely to go very close at one stage but could only manage 3rd. His canny trainer will win some handicap hurdles with him no doubt. (or is it a her..)
One trainer stands out today on the ‘1st run in a handicap’ report…
1.50 Donny… Generous Day... 9/1… (4th 8/1…and a fairly distance enough 4th, not really backed as hoped, maybe the rain didn’t help,or maybe not good enough..but certainly showed enough and will hack up in a weak handicap hurdle one day no doubt…) may be worth some support. If he is well backed then strap yourselves in, if he isn’t, maybe today isn’t the day. The money can talk for this yard. Henry Oliver is 6/12,7p with handicap debutants in the last 2 years, +32 SP. Shrewd. He is 0/1,1p at Donny with such types. He has shown glimpses of ability but has struggled to stand up on a couple of occasions. He was showing promise in that Bangor run. And heavy ground may be the excuse for the last day. He will have been running in those races to ‘gain experience’ and if we are to see more from him, it could be today. Of course he may just be devoid of ability and he will run some ok races, drop into C5, then hack up! The trainer does like his C5 handicap hurdles, the gambles in those have paid for many a Christmas party I imagine!
One to keep an eye on in what looks a shocker of a race.
That will be all for today.
I believe this offer closes on Tuesday so don’t be sitting on the fence for too long 🙂
