FGR – Best Of The Day
Although not overly impressive, Garde La Victoire got the job done at Cheltenham yesterday to get us off the mark for the season. Returned at a BSP of 1.6, he was briefly available at odds against on the exchanges, and could be backed at 5-6 BOG at the time of posting.
Today’s shortlist is made up of…
Leicester 1.45 Double Chocolate
Leicester 2.45 Stephanie Frances
Plumpton 2.00 Val D’Arc
Double Chocolate returned from a leg injury to score first time up at Uttoxeter on his first run for Martin Keighley. Is not getting any younger however, and it’s hard to argue that he has his optimum conditions today.
Stephanie Frances chased home The New One in a Listed Hurdle at Kempton last time, and only has to reproduce her best hurdles form to have an obvious chance here on her chasing debut.
Val D’Arc did little wrong when second to Aloomomo at Warwick last time, but is unlikely to get an uncontested lead here on ground which will be plenty soft enough for him too.
For my best of the best of the day, I’m going for…
Leicester 2.45 STEPHANIE FRANCES @ 11-10 BOG
…who has been found a good opportunity by Dan Skelton to open her account over fences here.
