FGR – Best Of The Day
Irving, although not particularly impressive, got the job done for us at Haydock yesterday, returned at a BSP of 1.92 with 5-4 BOG available at the time of posting.
But accolades must go to our bonus bet, which saw Cue Card win the Betfair Chase in exemplary fashion, returned at a BSP of 3.1 and widely available at 11-4 BOG beforehand.
Today’s shortlist consists of…
Navan 1.10 Ten Times Better
Exeter 1.30 Houston Dynimo
Uttoxeter 3.20 Jac The Legend
Ten Times Better won over hurdles at the first time of asking, and easily at that. His two wins to date have both come at Clonmel (a tight track) when relatively fresh on ground slightly better than today, so there are question marks.
Houston Dynimo has had a busy time of late. Made all when winning at Wincanton last time over 2m4f on soft, but he may not get an uncontested lead here with De Faoithesdream lining up against him, and its questionable if he wants it as soft as this.
Jac The Legend scored over 3m3f at Sedgefield last time. There is a slight doubt about today’s trip, but otherwise he appears to have a lot going for him here and he should make a bold bid.
I’m going for…
Uttoxeter 3.20 JAC THE LEGEND @ 11-4 BOG
…as my best of the day. Brian Ellison’s charge is progressive and can add to recent Sedgefield gains.
