THE BANDIT’S TIPS AT PONTE AND HEXHAM
A DRAGON AND A SEAL
A new week of racing ahead of us, with the first classics of the season just around the corner too. It won’t be long until I head off to Warwick for their meeting on May 12th too. Can’t wait, love the town, course and the weekend away.
Here are my selections for Monday, I’m having one of those very barren runs at the moment, not just with my naps but all my bets. It always happens though, peaks and troughs. Let’s hope they come in today.
SEAL ROCK 1515 PONTEFRACT – (nap) (Won 9-2 = 22 points) has won fresh the past two seasons and looked a very smart prospect at one point last year. Won his very first race impressively on good to soft, so I’m hoping he will perform. (4 point win)
RIVER DRAGON 1630 HEXHAM – (nb) (2nd 2-1) won well on Boxing Day and has repatedly run well since when performing over hurdles. The ground will be bottomless and he will love that, so has to come into calculations. (3 point win)
CHOSEN CHARACTER 1645 PONTEFRACT – (treble) (3rd 8-1 = 8 points) won here over the same distance last May off a slightly higher weight and was a creditable fifth the other week at Catterick. That run should have got him fitter for this. (2 points each way)
STAKE = 11 points
RETURNS = 30 points
BANK = 64.5 points

Remember if you are having a wager to bet within your means. These are my selections and I am not suggesting you follow my advice, I only do this for a bit of fun!
