I turn my attention to the jumpers from today but will still be monitoring the markets for the flat and, from today, looking at the markets pertaining to the all weather.
A few things catching my eye today, not least the pair of Bumper runners over from Ireland in the last at Sedgefield.
It’s not the Gordon Elliott runner though, that I’m looking at, it’s BOLD PEARL.
Gavin Cromwell has only sent three horses to this track in the last five years and won with two of them. Tom O’Brien comes here for just this one ride….as does Johnson for the ride on Elliott’s horse DANNY ARCHER.
Very much a day for seeing what happens, as opposed to betting but if I was looking to play one horse today, it would be:
LANTIERN (Southwell 4-10)
Trainer has a 35% strike rate with his hurdlers here and you sit up and take notice when he has Sheehan on board. When they team up at Southwell they have a superb 45% strike rate (5-11), and the market has been all over this horse since last night.
I’d be happy suggesting a 20/80.
Best of luck today.
