Early Bird – 5th June

A place today was all that was managed from two selections though both started at almost half the price they were advised at.

4:15 Fontwell – Mogestic

A winner last time out despite being off the track for almost a year. However, it is a horse who needs decent ground to be seen at its best. Its record on good or faster is 22317821. Form of that last win has worked out well with the 3rd finishing a close second next time whilst the fourth won on its next start. This doesn’t look a strong race and given a good bit of time off between its runs it should take all the beating again at a trip it seems to stay.

7:25 Kilbeggan – Yes Pat

Taking a little pot chance on this horse who won at this meeting last year in a bumper. Not shown a great deal since though its two runs this jumps season are interesting to say the least. Firstly it was held up the back and never put in the race before staying on notably without ever looking like getting there. Then 8 days later it blew up when travelling well but fading quickly. Had looked like it stayed the trip the time before so possible that race just come too soon for it or did too much too early. Either way those two runs I suspect will put it spot on for this pretty weak handicap and though I don’t always advise it, this looks a good opportunity to take advantage of Bet365 1/4 odds 4 places terms at standout odds.
