Thursday Selections. Towcester. Wetherby. Clonmel & Chelmsford. (29/03/2018)

Thursday 29th March 2018

Today’s meetings see once again a combination of National Hunt and All Weather fixtures take the stage. We also have an Irish meeting at Clonmel as well to look at this afternoon, here are my fancies…


2.10 – Megaboost (8/1) (E/W) (Jockey: M Kendrick (5) – Trainer: B I Case)

(Placed in an Irish point and didn’t really feature on bumper debut. However ran well the last day behind a decent sort and could well build on that here on a more suitable trip.)


3.20 – Grams & Ounces (13/2) (E/W) (Jockey: L Heard – Trainer: G Harris)

(Won a few times on the flat last season but didn’t really feature over hurdles during the latter part of the campaign. Had a break now though and has won over C&D, could well get involved.)



2.00 – Pirate Look (4/5) (Jockey: A Tinkler – Trainer: M Keighley)

(Decent performer on the flat for Marco Botti. Ran well in second on hurdles debut and wouldn’t really have to improve all that much to take this.)


5.15 – Once An Angel (7/1) (E/W) (Jockey: R Chapman – Trainer: M Todhunter)

(Ran a lot better the last day on heavy going and is now a pound lower than that. Breeding suggests this longer trip should suit. Could well feature.)



2.05 – It’s Only A Number (7/2) (Jockey: M P Walsh – Trainer: F J Flood)

(Two moderate runs to his name so far, likely to keep progressing further though and could give a lot bigger showing here.)


2.35 – R’eveleyn Pleasure (6/5) (Jockey: D Meyler – Trainer: S O O’Brien)

(Was a clear fifth the last day and has been steadily progressing with each run. Likely to be a lot closer today in this weaker contest.)


4.20 – Koshari (2/1) (Jockey: R M Power – Trainer: W P Mullins)

(Pulled up the last day in a Grade 1 after several mistakes. Been running well in chases before that though winning a Grade 3 in the process. Should be there or thereabouts.)



2.55 – Espadrille (1/1) (Jockey: J Doyle – Trainer: C Appleby)

(Won well on his last start of last season, likely to put in another big run here for powerful connections.)


NAP: Pirate Look – 2.00 Wetherby

NB: Espadrille – 2.55 Chelmsford
