The National hunt seasin is well and truly back and those of you who have been readers of my blog over time will know how much I love it! So, I thought I'd get the blog going again after a little push from @TonytheTyke.
Here are my selections for today, good luck if you're having a flutter!
SEW ON TARGET 1410 CHELTENHAM
Beat ASTRACAD off a mark of OR135 last year and has been dropped a few pounds to a mark of OR138 today which makes him more interesting. The ground should be fine and I'm expecting a
HARGAM 1445 CHELTENHAM
You can put a line through his Aintree run, he was knackered from his Festival exploits. The ground should be perfect for him and he will go well fresh. He has to burden some extra weight compered to his rivals but he has the class to prevail.
BIG CASINO 1510 CHELTENHAM (nap)
Ran very well in a class 2 race at Haydock beating the likes of CLOUD CREEPER and ANSI FIDELES. The ground should be fine and the extended trip should help too. Cloud Creeper went on to run creditably in a listed race after his defeat and I think my guy is a horse to follow this year.
ARABIAN REVOLUTION 1705 CHELTENHAM (nb)
I really fancied this horse at the festival but he ran a stinker. The ground and the trip today will suit and his defeat by BELTOR last year, followed up by avictory at Huntington sets him up well to improve this year. The yard are flying too!
