Two races for us to briefly look at today. Both for races that are very tight at the top of the market.
We start in the 2.05 Newcastle.
Looks a match between Lake View Lad and Lamool. The market has them at 4/7 and 6/4 respectively.
Lake View Lad disappointed when stepped up in class at Kelso last time. Drops markedly back to Class 4 again today.
Lamool returns from a six month break. Has won above this level in the past.
Both are off the same weight and have 5lb claimers. I have the pair as even money joint-fav’s.
On to the 2.15 at Aintree.
Limini impressed when winning the Mares’ Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham and takes on the boys today.
It’s another Mullins vs Henderson match up with Buveur D’air the main danger. I go 2/1 the pair.
Will be doing a quick update for Aintree around 1.30 today.
