Steps took what seemed like an age to get going at Newbury yesterday, but get going he did to get up smack on the line, returned at a generous BSP of 5.43.
Today’s shortlist is…
Hamilton 4.20 Haymarket
Plumpton 2.30 King Munro
Plumpton 3.00 Sandynow
Haymarket is not the most prolific, but has been in good form this season, and has claims if staying today’s 1m5f.
King Munro attempts the three timer here and has apparently benefitted from being able to work at the Nigel Twiston Davies yard where they have a deeper gallop. Has strong claims now he has learnt to settle.
Sandynow was only just narrowly ran out of it at Perth last time and is going the right way, but has yet to win over fences in 15 attempts.
For my best of the day I’ll be weighing in with…
Plumpton 2.30 KING MUNRO
…who has decent claims here, and is worthy of a 1pt recommended bet.
