It was a brilliant weekend of jumps racing on both sides of the Irish Sea and I was in a very privileged position to attend Cheltenham for all three days, where there was some fascinating action. As much as I took a couple of days off from writing these day by day articles, it has left me considerably refreshed for the upcoming week of action – and hopefully we might take some long term views towards the Betfair Chase and Troytown Handicap come the end of the week. Starting off at Limerick today, where I fancy a couple.
Starting off with the 12.45 race, which is a 2m maiden hurdle and sees a competitive field of 12 line up on forecast soft ground. I wasn’t going to put this horse up until I saw the price, which I found a little bit insulting for the consistent, The Greek – who comes into this race with a more solid chance than his price would suggest. He has been expensive to follow for his followers but he was running a big race against a more talented stablemate when falling at the second last at Down Royal, and will be suited by the step down in grade here. His previous form would indicate he should be able to pick up a race of this nature and hopefully today might be the day. At a price of 6/1 with Bet365, he looks a good bet each way.
The 1.20 race is another competitive race and this mares handicap hurdle features a mare that has been most profitable for us at WhichBookie in Dympnas Well. She went in again last time out at Wexford, when winning comfortably and has been hiked up in the weights as a result. She still comes here with a decent chance in this sort of contest and looks to constantly be improving. We have backed her for all three of her wins so far this season, so it would be remiss of us not to repay some of the faith. She is currently 4/1 with Bet365 – who are only paying the 3 places, but are offering a quarter of the odds as a result – so represents some sort of value. At that price, and with her profile, she should be backed each way.
I’m going be throwing a second dart at the board for this 1.20 race, in the shape of the unexposed Kilbree Warrior – who makes her handicap debut off a more than tempting mark in this field. She shaped well in some good quality maiden hurdles last year and this PtP winner will be winning more races from a mark of 104 this season. Obviously one has to take her fitness on trust at this time of the season, and she slightly flattered to deceive at times last year, but she also showed more than enough to make it seem like she was capable in this type of race. At a price of 12/1 with WIlliam Hill, who are paying 4 places in this race – she should also be backed each way.
The final selection comes in the 3.35 race, which is a 3m handicap hurdle. There may be some bias in this selection but the feeling is that Galyspo Clermont should be winning one of these races in the near distant future and despite being a short enough price for this type of field – I am going to take that risk. He has been inconsistent this year so far, but has run some credible races in defeat and has shaped like this 3m trip will suit him. He was well backed before the off at Fairyhouse last time out over 2m4f, when shaping very well and should be well capable of running well again from just one pound higher. At a general price of 3/1, I’m hoping he can do the business.
