What a busy week we have in store here at WhichBookie. As we get to the end of the week and the exciting Cheltenham cards, you might see some ante-post selections coming your way over the course of the next few days. Also, the Tote Ten To Follow entries need to be finalised and you’ll be seeing my team of 10 via article and video in the coming days also. However, for now, concentration focuses on Fairyhouse – which hosts a few nice races today, especially for a midweek meet.
Starting off with the 12.15, which is a 2m3f maiden hurdle for mares and sees my strongest fancy of the day. I can’t see beyond Banntown Girl in this line-up, who makes her hurdling debut having gained vast bumper experience. She has won once from her five starts in bumpers, and looks to be improving and will be aided by this step up in trip. She has also encountered different ground, when finishing second to Ashroe Diamond and when beating the smart Agritime, she raced on soft ground. While her close up fourth in a listed bumper last time out was on better ground. The form of beating Agritime at Roscommon could not have worked out any better and she should hold leading claims in this sort of contest. At a best price 9/4, she is well worth backing.
The 12.45 race looks like the strongest race on the card in terms of quality and depth. It sees the Gavin Cromwell trained Gabynako make his second start over fences, after a very encouraging run first time out at Galway. He should have stripped fitter for that run and may take some beating. However, the overpriced horse in this line-up is surely his stablemate, Alfa Mix – who has been gradually coming to the boil over fences and posted his best effort to date at Galway last time out. One might wonder whether they have aspirations of a big handicap with this horse, but this race is competitive and I would be surprised if they didn’t try and make some of that experience count. At a price of 14/1 with Bet365, I think he is too big a price each way to discard.
From one JP McManus horse to the next, which runs in the 1.15 and is a horse that I have not come to terms with whatsoever in the last few months. I have perhaps blindly thought that Cerberus will be up to winning one of these races sooner rather than later, with his mark of 119 over fences looking paltry in comparison to his exploits over hurdles. He has big questions to answer at this moment in time, but it still hasn’t deterred me from thinking that there will be a day for him very soon. Today might just be that day, or that is what I hope it might be – as he encounters a group of horses who wouldn’t have been able to lace up his boots over hurdles. He does have it to find on recent evidence though, and therefore I think the 9/1 on offer with William Hill is fair each way.
