A great day for Ben Linfoot on Wednesday including a 7/1 winning Nap and David Ord has a bet for every meeting on Thursday.
She looked a mare to follow when winning on handicap debut at Worcester last time and a six-pounds penalty is unlikely to prevent LIME DROP from following up in this.
Henry Daly’s charged travelled strongly through the race and was well on top at the finish when beating Lady Malarkey by three-and-three-quarter lengths. She’s in the same grade here and her chance is an obvious one.
There’s a risk involved here as he’s yet to cut the ice over fences but the handicapper has given GALILEO SILVER a real chance in the Evans & Co Amateur Jockeys' Handicap Chase.
He was fairly useful as a novice hurdler, winning at Sedgefield, but didn’t fire in his last start in a similar race to this at Chepstow. The assessor dropped him a further five pounds for that – taking him 12 below the mark he started with over the larger obstacles. Blinkers go on for the first time and William Biddick is an excellent booking. This is a chance for him to show his true colours.
He starts out with Jonjo O’Neill from a mark two pounds above his last winning one and AVOIR DE SOINS can make a winning seasonal reappearance in the Follow MansionBetRace On Twitter Handicap Chase.
The seven-year-old is still relatively unexposed over fences and the handicapper has definitely given him a chance. It’s an open handicap chase but Kieran Brogan is excellent value for his three-pound claim aboard the selection which further strengthens his case.
She’s still a work in progress but this could be the day things fall right for MULBERRY SILK.
She’s clearly in very good hands and having shown only limited encouragement in three starts in novice races, she took a step forward on handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time. Roger Varian’s charge defied market weakness to finish third behind Hooflepuff, coming home nicely. She’d needed a stronger gallop which she’s forecast to get here and if things fall right from her wide draw, she looks a player for the in-form Roger Varian team.
