FGR – Best Of The Day
Cresswell Breeze won easily enough at Wincanton yesterday, benefitting from when the odds-on favourite Blue Buttons dumped his rider on the deck at the 11th fence. How the race would of panned out had he stood up is anyone’s guess, but given our bad luck when Stephanie Frances clipped heels on Monday, we’ll take it.
And the advised 3-1 BOG was an added bonus too as the horse was well backed being returned at a BSP of 3.26.
Today’s shortlist is…
Haydock 1.20 Doctor Phoenix
Haydock 3.05 Wade Harper
Ascot 2.40 Back To Braka
Doctor Phoenix impressed with his jumping when scoring well at Lingfield last time when relishing the soft ground. Gets similar conditions here today and is a potentially smart prospect over fences.
Wade Harper will be better over fences in turn, but has posted two respectable efforts over timber the last twice. Unproven on soft ground but is not without a chance assuming he acts on it.
Back To Braka has good proven attributes as he showed when winning at Ayr last time. Has had his issues however, and you can never be quite sure what you’re going to get from him, but has decent claims on his best form.
I’m going with…
Haydock 1.20 DOCTOR PHOENIX @ 7-4 BOG
…as my best of the day. He may prove the most reliable of the above and has a bright future over fences.
