Four selections today from Andy Holding
Probably the best champ of a guard this season both outwardly and on the clock was Smurphy Enki at Wincanton half a month back and having formed genuinely well considering the pace of the race and his general desire levels, SONG OF THE HUNTER (best price 15-2) merits a little enthusiasm for these marginally more quiet waters on leaping debut.
A champ for old associations in a point-to-point already, Gail Hailwood’s dim was sent off one of the outcasts at the West Country setting 12 days prior, and in spite of the fact that his situation in the market was inevitably legitimized, his run wasn’t without guarantee either. Hooking on to the main gathering returning out of the straight, the child of Network didn’t have the pace to go with the possible victor, who truly went into another stratosphere starting there, however it was urging to see him get his head down and fight it out for the minor distinctions and that mentality will no uncertainty stand him great stead sometime later. Aside from the front two in the market, who both performed to a reasonable level last break, this race doesn’t look the most grounded lady obstacle at any point run and giving the six-year-old shows a not too bad strategy over obstacles at the first run through of asking (he has five point runs added to his repertoire), he ought to effectively be adequate to have a type of effect.

COEUR SEREIN (best price 11-4) demonstrated no counterpart for two or three better than expected beginners at Newbury last break, however there was surely no disgrace in his exertion back in third given the beat the race was run all through and despite the fact that he faces another conceivably helpful sort looking like Global Fame, he’s completely expected to set up a not too bad show.
A respectable third behind the keen Kepagge in a guard at Chepstow back in November for new associations, Jonjo O’Neill’s gelding molded with a lot of support on his leaping debut at Kempton later around the same time. Grabbing the attention of the stewards that day, the son of Fame And Glory is unmistakably better than what he appeared at the Surrey scene and he proceeded to demonstrate that to be the situation with an undeniably increasingly positive presentation 18 days prior. Remaining on pleasantly in the last phases of what ended up being an unequivocally run undertaking at the Berkshire track, the six-year-old got the pieces late on to complete a never-closer third behind a helpful Irish select now being taken care of by Martin Pipe and that exhibition gives him similarly as great a possibility here than the present top pick, Global Fame, in light of the numbers. As could be, with a pony having his third begin once again leaps, there’s constantly a peril of the person being referred to have a run for an impediment mark, however giving that isn’t the situation and he’s permitted to run on his benefits, Coeur Serein has indicated the kind of capacity that should see him incredibly serious.

15:00 Down Royal
LILY’S GEM (best price 4-1) can toss the odd terrible run in for no evident explanation, however as a rule terms, she’s genuinely dependable at this kind of level and with her certainty prone to be helped following a gutsy accomplishment at Carlisle last break, Shane Crawford’s female horse has an average possibility of rehashing the portion.
The element of that presentation at the Cumbrian setting half a month prior was the manner in which she went all through the challenge and afterward once requested to polish the activity off after the last, she discovered bounty for strain to battle off the steady test of the vigorously upheld top pick, Penny Mallow. Set on the two begins once again the present hardened, jogging track, the little girl of Scorpion completed a strong third behind the valuable Opposites Attract in an all around run undertaking over the C&D back in December and a rehash of that degree of structure should see her go exceptionally close on her arrival visit.
|Lilys Gem – 1pt e/w ||4/1|
SCOIR MEAR (best price 4-1) has been carrying out his specialty in a lot harder impairments than the one he faces this evening and he’s liked to squeeze home his latent capacity class edge.
By all accounts, 1 pursue win in 20 is a truly poor return for a pony of his quality, however when you considering a decent lion’s share have come in Grade B handicaps at a portion of the greater scenes all over the length-and-breath of the land, it places the humble proportion into a type of viewpoint. Without a doubt, his most recent exhibition in a such a challenge at Leopardstown was accomplished in an exceptionally quick time figure and when you consider those in behind him 16 days back incorporated any semblance of Poker Party (Kerry National victor), and Mortal (fifth in last season’s RSA Chase), it invests his energy into a unique situation. Champ of the EBF Chase Final at Navan this time a year ago, the 10-year-old dark has slipped to a comparable imprint following a progression of unplaced endeavors and giving he can change his attitude to dashing left-gave for a change, he ought to handily be fit for standing his ground at this level.
