What is going on with this weather? In some areas they’re are saying we are in a drought, yeah right! Done nowt but chuck it down here for the past few weeks and with more forecast on Wednesday we need to find the soft ground horses!
Tuesday’s tips proved to give us some retuns with FADE TO GREY (5-1) obliging.
So, on to Wednesday.
AMBION WOOD 1430 PERTH – (nap) (Won 11-8 = 23.75 points) won a fantastic race at Sandown and was tipped up here. Previous to that he ran COTTON MILL close at Warwick. He won at Sandown off top weight and with the rain forecast that will further aid his cause, I can’t see anything beating him. (10 point win)
SITTING TENNANT 1640 PERTH – (nb) (2nd – 7-1) was at one time a smart prospect for Howard Johnson and Graham Wylie and has won on soft and heavy. He hasn’t run over hurdles for two years, but his last two runs over these obstacles read 12. He has won at 2m and further and I fancy him to show some of his class today. (3 point win)
DEEP APPLAUSE 1615 CATTERICK – (treble) (unplaced) he will love the testing conditions forecast and the further trip should also play into his favour. Has won on good to soft and came second on heavy over 9f. (2 points each way)
STAKE = 17 points
RETURNS = 23.75 points
BANK = 92.75 points
