Today’s Info 27th March 2015
Been a quiet week on the selections front with small fields and trappy cards dominating as we wait for the weekend and the kick off to the flat and the best jumpers hanging on until Fairyhouse, Aintree and Punchestown.
A few wagers appeal today and possibly the most interesting is Vinny Gambini at Wetherby for Rose Dobbin who has applied pieces and Tom Scudamore to her charge and he ran with promise at the track last time out. It might appear he was outstayed but this will be his optimum trip and he is no short of pace so I expect a better run now and he should prove nicely handicapped with a clear round this afternoon.
Lots of deadwood in the Handicap Hurdle at Newcastle at 3.10pm and although the hand has been shown with Honourable Gent to some degree what has been seen may well be up to taking this race off top perch. Handy pilot booked and bumped into a couple recently but this looks weaker and I expect he will be hard to keep out of the finish with a repeat of recent efforts with conditions to suit once more.
In the 3.40pm Chase on the card a big run from Orsippus would not surprise given his best efforts and on just a third start over fences they may have found a nice opportunity to add to success on the level and over hurdles to date. Conor O’Farrell would do best to be prominent on his ride today and if the jumping holds up with the experience gained so far and a spin over hurdles when last seen this stiffer test now looks a good move. No doubt he has the ability to win so an interesting runner today at a fair price.
