Welcome aboard to this Wednesday blog where we’ll be looking to bounce back from a pretty shambolic effort on Tuesday with four selections from Warwick & Haydock. My first pick of the day comes in the 1:40 at Warwick which is a maiden hurdle that’s ridden over two miles. I’ve sided with Greatness Awaits here at 7/2 for Ben Pauling and Kevin Brogan. He was a decent horse on the flat and showed promise in his first two starts to date over obstacles, progressing with each effort. If he continues said progression here which is likely he could go even closer at the business end of things.
My next selection comes in the 2:50 at Warwick which is a novices’ handicap chase that’s contested over two miles. I’ve taken a chance on Eros here at 4/1 for Kayley Woollacott and Ben Godfrey. He’s becoming highly tried without winning, however, that being said he does always run to a pretty consistent level and looks to be on a reasonable mark. He’s also back down in trip here in what doesn’t look like a great race and I think he once again has every chance of getting on the board if getting some luck in the run.
I’m going over to Haydock now for their 3:35 which is a handicap hurdle that’s ridden over two miles and three furlongs. This is a competitive affair, however, I really like the chances of the ten-year-old Alnadam here at 7/2 for Dan Skelton and Tristan Durrell. He bounced back to form last time when finishing third at Wetherby and Durrell takes five pounds off what already looks a nice mark. He’s won off considerably higher in the past in much tougher contests and it would be disappointing if he didn’t go close in this.
My fourth and final punt of the day comes in the 5:20 at Haydock which is a handicap chase over two miles and half of a furlong. I think that this particular affair can go to Grey Diamond at 15/8 who’s my NAP of the day and represents the team of Sam Thomas and Sam Twiston-Davies. He was last seen when falling at Sandown back in January, I actually tipped him up that day and he was traveling very well before making the mistake two out. This is a slight ease in grade and if he turns up in the same kind of form whilst sharpening his jumping up, he’s got to be considered as a very serious player.
