Bet of The Day (test… 6/34, +28 points)

2.20 Warwick – The Tailgater – 1 point win – 7/1 (general) Fell last, 7/1>3/1 (10p R4)*

*ah well another one to go down that was well backed. 7s was too big and there was plenty of money for him. He travelled well here and was starting to motor when coming down at the last. He would have gone close given he was just getting into top gear but no complaints- that happens, esp when you’re held up and have to make up ground and with an inexperienced pilot on top. They didn’t look to go much of a pace either,which may not have helped as it turned into a bit of a dash. He may not have got there anyway. Maybe a track with a longer straight will suit. Given how he moved through this,and how he was closing, he could be ahead of the handicapper by a fair chunk. Doubt he will be 7s NTO sadly. Frustrating. 

I am still just focusing on the jumps for this test ‘bet of the day’ and will dabble in the flat once it settles down a bit. Anyway, this horse ticks the boxes I think for the type of profile I like to attack in this test section – he is lightly raced, this being only his 6th handicap hurdle, and the hope is pinned around that run two starts ago, over 19f. It doesn’t look like he stays 24/25f, having travelled well for a long way LTO before fading in the last couple of furlongs. A repeat of that Donny run the time before should put him right in the mix here. It could be he is a bit of a weak finisher- now that may have been due to the yard form, and Jonjo’s are going much better now. Or maybe the 61 day break suggests they have had a tinker with his wind or something. He has two career wins to his name so I can’t think it is an attitude problem. He is Top 3 rated on both ratings sets also, and Jonjo is 3/11,5p with handicap hurdlers at the track returning after 60+ days. He ticks a lot of Jonjo’s micro angles for the track and his son takes off a handy 7lb. He has looked decent enough and has won a couple of handicap hurdles. All in all, 7s looks a shade too big to me and with any luck there is market support. He will travel into it well I think, and we shall see what he can find after the last.


That will be all for this bit today.


3.Any general messages/updates etc

I will pull together something for Punchestown today, and post up a link this afternoon, in tomorrow’s post.
