Plenty of racing today with six meetings ranging from Musselburgh in the north, right down to Brighton on the south coast.
However, it is a matter of ‘never mind the quality, feel the width.’ A lot of today’s offering is guesswork maidens or low grade handicaps.
Two races for us at Worcester this evening to consider.
The going is Good and the ground has been watered.
6.20: Five runners for this Class 4 Novice Chase. Ballybroker Breeze carries a 6lb higher weight than all of his rivals with 11-4. Won on his chase debut at Perth last month. Southfield Vic has the best form but isn’t trustworthy. His overall level and experience at both hurdles and fences makes him the favourite here. Given his best, he should win, but that best is never guaranteed.
I price them up as follows:
Southfield Vic 6/4
Ballyboker Breeze 3/1
Fort Worth 3/1
7.50: I have Truckers Glory and Our Reward in at 9/4 joint favourites. My marginal preference would be for Truckers Glory with the experienced conditional Jonathan Moore claiming 5lb.
Better cards for us tomorrow.
