Balgemmois returned place money at Leiceser yesterday. Zigger Zagger and Fields Of Glory ran respectably at the same track but Alto Des Mottes was very disappointing at Cattterick. |
1.10 - Sedgefield - Pixiepot. 2 pts win. Available at 6/1.
Decent collateral form is thin on the ground but slight preference is for Pixiepot. She is still a maiden after 13 starts over hurdles but she finished the last campaign with two runner up efforts and, after probably needing her reappearance this season, she again finished second at Market Rasen last time out. They all came on faster ground over shorter trips but two of the best efforts of her career to date came in heavy ground at around today's sort of trip so conditions today shouldn't pose a problem. They both came from a four pound higher mark than she runs from today and today's jockey has finished second three times from the four rides he has been on board (returning from a break when unplaced in the other)
1.30 - Huntingdon - Just So Cool. 1 pt e/w. available at 10/1.
None of these are totally convincing and the lack of apparent pace complicates matters further. Given the yard are in good form and quite capable of getting one ready after a break it may be worth chancing that Just So Cool is fit enough to do himself justice. He returns from a 670 day absence and has yet to win a race over hurdles in six previous attempts. However he has a progressive profile at a modest level and finished placed in his last four starts, including his first three outings in handicap company. He has shown form from 16 to an extended 23 furlongs and has no problems with testing conditions. He was last seen finishing a seven length third at Warwick back in March 2016 and now runs from a five pound lower mark. The yard have a profitable 15% strike rate with today's jockey (only booked ride today) in recent seasons and they send just the one to a track where they have a very profitable 25% strike rate in recent seasons.
2.30 - Huntingdon - Dylaseoghan. 3 pts win. Available at 4/1.
7.15 - Newcastle - Tommy G. 2 pts win. Available at 11/2.
Goodison is one of the most intimidating grounds in the country when Evertonians get in the mood and from that point, with the bit between their teeth,they refused to let Arsenal settle with the noise
