Double Dutch, 30th October 2014

A winning double, with prices available only after I'd retired for the evening (seven hour time lag means 10am UK is 3am here, hence I will not be staying up to post available odds!)

But I can check the available odds via oddschecker, and I will quote the BOG odds available at 10am, or SP if better. We were blessed with a mild drifter in Mr Diablo, scoring at 3/1, and 11/8 Sykes, who also drifted a little from early shows.

We also claimed a 1-2 double.

Wednesday's results were as follows:

Mr Diablo: won at 11/4 (available 10am at 3/1)
Highest Level: 2nd at 8/13 (adv NA)
------------------------------------------
Sykes: won at 11/8 (adv NA)
Moral Hazard: 2nd at 6/5 (adv NA)

1.40 Stratford

A selling hurdle that should be won by Street Entertainer. He has the best form, has 'previous' in sellers, and has conditions in his favour. But the fact that he goes from a Class 3 handicap at Cheltenham to a Class 5 seller at Stratford leaves the door ajar. Most likely to kick the door open was a toss up between Gud Day and Debt To Society and, whilst the former is slightly better in at the weights, the latter is in much better recent form.

Debt To Society has been first or second in five of his last six starts, winning three of them, which is the kind of consistency that overcomes apparent ratings inferiority. Indeed, he can be said to have run to his rating recently while others have been slipping down the scale by dint of performing some way below their previous pars.

2.40 Stratford:

An hour later, and we'll chance our arm in a novices' hurdle. Another strong favourite manifests itself in Tom George's Baby King, winner of a Navan novice from which the winners of eleven races have emerged. That was back in March on soft to heavy ground, so fitness and ground appreciation are taken on trust.

In case either of those fails to pass muster, marginal preference from a small group of likely rivals is Nicky Henderson's Summer Storm. Trained for The Queen, Hendo's son of Lucarno did well to win a bumper around Southwell, and will have come on plenty for the experience. The Seven Barrows firm are in excellent form and have a strong historical record at the track; and jockey Peter Carberry steals a welcome three pounds of Summer Storm's back.

Plenty of other talented horses in the field, though most can be expected to show their true colours further down the line.
