Ben Linfoot has a bet for both Aintree and Wincanton on Sunday with the Sporting Life Daily Nap running in Liverpool.
Harry Fry picks his targets carefully at this time of year and it could be notable he aims WINNINGSEVERYTHING at the first Aintree meeting in the Jewson Wallasey Handicap Hurdle on Sunday.
Fry won this race with Bags Groove back in 2017 and Winningseverything looks interesting fresh on the back of a wind op off his lowest-ever mark.
Rated 135 after sluicing up in a couple of novice hurdles two years ago, he wasn’t seen for a year and returned over fences at Bangor in October of last year only for him to fall two out on his chasing debut.
Down the field in a couple of handicap hurdles after that, his run at Ffos Las in May was encouraging as he ran well only to get tired late on over three miles and he’s dropped 6lb to 129 for two runs.
We saw on his hurdling debut that he can go very nicely fresh, so now might be the time to catch him in a race his trainer has a bit of previous in.
Fit from a successful Flat campaign, the unexposed-over-hurdles COGITAL can go well in the Tote Supporting Racing Welfare Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle at Wincanton.
Bernard Llewellyn’s six-year-old has won twice on the Flat this summer and he looked in good nick when last seen at Ffos Las at the end of September, so there are no fitness worries about this stayer on the level.
He took well to hurdles and won nicely in a novices’ handicap hurdle at Ffos Las on his third go over timber, winning well off a perch of 108.
Just 4lb higher on his fifth hurdling go on Sunday, he could take advantage of any rustiness from the likes of Famoso and Blumen Glory, who are likely to head the market on their seasonal returns.
