It was a happy return to the mecca of Horse Racing, as there were two winners from four selections from today’s efforts. Most importantly, it showed off the dogged attitude of Bardenstown Lad, who won in determined fashion despite looking a little lazy and behind the bridle at times. It further boosts his chances of turning up for the Albert Bartlett, so we can clutch onto our 50/1 slips and hope for the best, he is halved in price with the majority of firms since his win this afternoon.
Moving onto tomorrow’s action at Cheltenham and Galway, I feel more than lucky to be attending HQ of the jumps game and have an early flight to catch in the morning. I am hoping the journey can be made worthwhile with an early winner in the 1.45. The 2m conditional jockeys handicap hurdle looks like an open affair, and I’m going to be siding with Small Bad Bob for the Paul Henderson team. Having been acquired from Ireland, he has a productive summer with two wins and two seconds from his four starts. He has won impressively on his last two starts and might still have a bit more to come from him in this sort of race. At a price of 14/1 with Paddy Power, who are offering 5 places, he is an each way bet.
Moving onto the 2.20 race, which is an equally open 3m1f handicap chase and sees plenty of old favourites coming back to do battle once again over this staying trip. I will be siding with connections of my winner today with Go Another One for the shrewd John McConnell. He should be ideally suited by this test of stamina on good ground, as he has had another very productive summer campaign and has been placed to great effect by his trainer. He edged out stablemate Roi De Dubai, who will run later in the card, in a titanic duel at Perth last time out, and his effort can be upgraded as he made a few mistakes at crucial times. If eradicating those mistakes, he should have a good chance in this sort of contest. At a price of 11/1 with William Hill for 5 places, he is another each way bet.
The final bet at Cheltenham tomorrow comes in the 4.05 race. It is perhaps playing with fire to be backing horses in a Pertemps Qualifier, but I’m particularly interested in Born Patriot in this race, who makes the trip over for the connections of the County Hurdle winner last season. Having had a decent novice season, where he ran some nice races in behind good horses, he came fourth on reappearance behind Tullybeg and the much discussed, Bardenstown Lad. He shaped like he needed the run and gets weight from Tullybeg now, so could be able to get much closer to him. Off a mark of 132, he should be in the mix. At a price of 6/1 with Paddy Power with 5 places available, he is another each way bet.
Moving onto Galway, which holds an equally interesting jumps card and has a brilliant weekend of jumps action with some good races tomorrow also. The 1.20 race is a 2m juvenile hurdle, and I think that there may well be some good money for the already short favourite, Iberique Du Seuil, who has joined Gordon Elliot with a massive reputation. Obviously, betting in Juvenile Hurdles always comes with big caveats but if you take some of them out of the mix, then he could well be backable at a price of 6/4. His run in France looked promising and whispers coming out of the yard are that he may well be a cut above. Bet365 are offering that 6/4 price, which I have taken.
And the final selection for tomorrow comes in the 3.37 race from Galway, which is the 2m6f handicap hurdle. There is a highly intriguing runner in the form of Coventry, who looks worth a try at this trip having been caught on his heels over 2 miles last time out. Having been a handy juvenile last year, his jumping has looked careful at 2 miles and this step up in trip may well help his jumping, while his flat form would suggest he should have no issue staying this trip. He is well handicapped off a mark of 121 if putting things together, so hopefully he can produce on some of his promise and deliver a big effort. At a price of 9/1 with SkyBet, who offer 4 places, he is another each way bet.
