The #NAP dually delivered on Saturday to get us back in some form. Both the other two ran solid races too finishing a close second & third landing an EW treble. Two meetings both over the jumps on Sunday, here are my three.
Sunday 24th September:
#NAP – ARISTOCRACY (1.40 Uttoxeter) – Has come close the last twice after running well on the level after a short break. The trip last time at Sedgefield may have stretched him, so the return to the trip where he was beaten a short head on his penultimate start will benefit here. The bit of give in the ground won’t be a problem and Fergal O’Brien has been in good form of late, should go close. (10/3) – Bet365 – 5pt – WON
#NB – HOLLY BUSH HENRY (3.50 Plumpton) – Fresh off the back of a win on Monday, this six-year old gelding has every chance of following up if the 7lb penalty he carries doesn’t affect him too much. The first-time cheekpieces worked after some poor efforts and he keeps them on today, trainer in hot form too. (11/4) – Sky Bet – 3pt – WON
#IWAC – COSMIC TIGRESS (4.10 Uttoxeter) – She has won two of five starts over hurdles, both over this distance of 2m and is still unexposed in this sphere. Stays on the same mark as for when a decent fourth last time out and looks primed for a big run. (7/1) – Bet 365 – 1pt ew – Lost
