12:15 Catterick – Lough Legend 14/1 – 0.5pt ew – Often there abouts in four career runs. Was poor last time though after running too freely and ultimately tiring. Sue Smith does well with horses around here and 14’s looks good value.
12:35 Ffos Las – Strong Resemblance 7/4 – 1pt win – Up 7lb after winning again last time and still looks well treated from earlier in the calendar year. He won that last race eased down by 17 lengths even when making an error at the last. Will want to be close to the pace.
2:50 Ffos Las – Lamanver Odyssey 10/1 – 0.5pt ew – Has been in my tracker since the trainer said he liked him at the start of the season. This is the first run for that trainer since joining from Harry Fry. This is the horses first run for 200+ days but he won well fresh in a class 2 hurdles event around this time last year. Better than price suggests if fit.
3:50 Ascot – Flying Tiger 9/2 – 1pt win – Nick Williams is bang inform, and they have the champion jockey booked here. Flying Tiger struggled last time out in a hot novice chase and he goes back over hurdles today. He is 7lb lower than his last run over hurdles where he was midfield in Ayr Scottish Champion Hurdle. Goes close today if back on it.
