I thought I would do a bonus weekday blog after looking at Wednesday’s cards a few jumped out at me that are of interest.
POLLY PEACHUM 1630 WARWICK (nap) – (WON 3-1) I have been waiting for this horse to run again for a while. I first saw her win her at Warwick in a bumper that she took very easily and looked a smart prospect. The key to her is good ground. She ran a great race when winning at Kempton last year beating the likes of MICKIE and CALL ME A STAR in a class 1 novice hurdle. She then disappointed a little on soft ground last time. In this class 4 on good ground with the very good Nico de Boinville taking 5 off her back she has a great chance.
COULDHAVEHADITALL 1420 WARWICK (NB) – (unplaced) this horse has only run once on good ground and he won well at Wetherby until the champ. He returns to good ground here after falling behind ANDY KELLY early on Saturday. ULZANA’S RAID will be all the rage because of the form however I think this one has a really good shout.
LISAHANE BOG 1940 KEMPTON (TREBLE) – (unplaced) this horse is due a win soon, based on the second and third to last starts you would think it is soon. He hasn’t won for a long time yet I find it intriguing that Adam Kirby gets the ride after finishing second on him here a few rides ago. Good chance.
ANNOUNCEMENT 2010 KEMPTON – (unplaced) this horse won on his solitary start last year at Thirsk, the form of that race is pretty solid with the second and third winning and the likes of FIRECRUISE who finished down the order that day winning a couple of decent races since and now on a mark of 80 which is up near the top two in the betting for this. Could run well in this contest at a decent price.
