FGR – Best Of The Day
Indian Voyage won in fine style for us at Wetherby yesterday when travelling and jumping well throughout, being returned at a BSP of 4.4, with 4-1 BOG available at the time of posting.
Today’s shortlist is composed of…
Newbury 2.10 Un Temps Pour Tout
Newbury 3.15 San Benedeto
Taunton 1.45 Knight Ofthe Realm
Un Temps Pour Tout ran satisfactory when second on his chasing debut in a Cheltenham novice last time, but heralds from a yard which has simply not been firing of late, and David Pipe is of the opinion that this gelding needs soft ground.
San Benedoto ran away with a Wincanton handicap hurdle last time over 2m4f. There is a slight doubt regarding this step back in trip, and all his proven form to date has been on sharp tracks, but he has obvious claims here all the same.
Knight Ofthe Realm benefitted from the softer ground when getting off the mark at Exeter last time, but today’s tight track and faster conditions may not play to his strengths, although he is relatively unexposed over timber.
I’m going for…
Newbury 3.15 SAN BENEDETO @ 2-1 BOG
…as my best of the day as, if he can reproduce his last time out Wincanton form on this more galloping track, he could prove hard to beat here.
