Yesterdays bet, Bulletproof, probably doesn’t stay 2m2f as he’s now Won 0 Placed 1 Unplaced 6 over the trip, which begs the question why did I back him in the first place, but errors of this nature are just an unfortunate part of the game.
Hopefully I’ll have more luck with today’s shortlist, which is…
Newmarket 4.55 Laafiraaq
Worcester 2.15 Skylander
Worcester 2.50 Helium
Laafiraaq won a weak Hamilton maiden last time out when making all. He’s unlikely to get an uncontested lead here and possibly wouldn’t want any more rain.
Skylander is a unexposed, progressive chaser, and is a horse I like. David Pipe’s horses aren’t exactly pulling up trees at the moment, but I’m expecting a big run today.
Helium is not the most prolific but only has to repeat his last time out effort when 2nd over C&D to have a good chance here.
I was sorely tempted to back Skylander today but…
Worcester 2.50 HELIUM
…is possibly the safer option. I’ll put him up as a highlighted horse as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet as there’s possibility that this may come too soon. However, he represents fair value at 3-1 BOG.
