Danimix’s jumping let him down just when it mattered most at Aintree yesterday, and he was back peddling soon after.
Today’s shortlist provides us with…
Wexford 3.15 Archie Mead
Leicester 1.50 Robert The Painter
Leicester 2.55 Fabricate
Archie Mead got off the mark at the 14th attempt over fences when winning a Listowel Beginners Chase last time. Obviously has more on his plate here in this Listed event and also needs to brush up on his jumping.
Robert The Painter is a tearaway front runner who will almost certainly get an uncontested lead here and has obvious claims. But he’s also vulnerable to something progressing past him as his recent form is much of a muchness.
Fabricate has been off the course since May, partly due to a throat infection. Has solid claims here if fit, as he has a progressive profile and has race conditions to suit.
I’m going for…
Leicester 2.55 FABRICATE
…as my best of the day. The unproven fitness factor prevents me from putting him up as a 1 pt recommended bet, so I’ll put him up as a highlighted horse instead.
