The video below (which i’m also sending out for non-members) looks at some hot-form lines that with any luck will be worth tracking. It focuses on a handicap chase from Exeter on 13th November, which was franked when Captain Drake won NTO on the 1st of Jan. If you like ‘hot form’ hopefully you find it interesting, and it could be worth watching with a notepad, as there’s a few horses/races that you may wish to jot down for the future.
The three chasers from this race i’ll be tracking are >>>
- De Name Evades Me
- Southern Sam
- Truckin Away
Below the video are a couple more chasers that caught my eye >>>
Looks Like Murt (7YO/Lucinda Russell)
This unexposed chaser ran at Newcastle on the 4th Jan in a chase which looked competitive on paper beforehand- plenty of in-form unexposed chasers lining up. This horse came into this on the back of a facile win and having had 90 days off (i’m not sure if he had a problem or they think he’s best fresh). He races with plenty of enthusiasm and as such they held him up here, no doubt trying to teach him how to settle/race. Sadly he fell 5 from home, when swinging away. I suspect he’d have been competing after the last and he was moving like a well handicapped/in-form horse. The winner did dot up but the 2nd gives some substance to the form – Sams Adventure – he’s been running well and got close to Lord Du Mesnil, who’s subsequent performances have boosted a few formlines/given them a solid look.
Looks Like Murt clearly needs to sharpen up his jumping and i’d like to see them race him more prominently if possible. However i’d be surprised if he doesn’t have a few more handicap chases in him up north.
Uallrightharry (8YO/Mrs L Jewell)
This horses was having just his 5th run over fences in the Sussex National on Sunday and ran a cracker in 2nd. He hasn’t always jumped with great fluency when under pressure, and fell on his previous start when he may well have won. He chased home the ‘right’ winner here in Christmas In April, who i’d hoped may be a class above these/well handicapped, given his formlines. But the fact he chased him home, and clearly stayed well, would indicate he’s still well handicapped off 110 and he won’t always bump into a rival like him, especially if he’s dropped back in class.
