Still limited time to look at racing today as I only have a short time with wifi access. still no real problem as there is 2 very good NH races today at Market Rasen

2:55 Market Rasen

Barizan was the most confident selection that I’ve ever made last time out , and considering how I rated him a few years ago I think the 12 lbs rise is well within his grasp here given he has perfect conditions. He was 18 lengths clear of the 3rd in his last victory and repeat at here will be good enough. I have a slight concern that his main target Is the Galway plate in a few weeks and it seems strange to be risking a possible rise in the weights for the biggest purse of its type but I can’t pass up on the value at 8/1 in places. Given my slight concern about his target I’m also going for Local Hero in this as he looks sure to get back to top form here having won this last year of only 4 lbs lower. He was a good 3rd last time to Barizan and with both Barizan and Australia Day in this the race could be setup for him to come late. 11/1 looks great value for him.

2 points win Barizan 8/1
2 Points Win Local Hero 11/1

3:30 Market Rasen

This seems a difficult race and I’m going with my gut feeling that Donas Palm will like the good ground and only needs to recover some of his old form to be in with a chance here off a nice weight. He has won before in Galway on very good ground and I’m hoping today may well be his target. He looks worth 1 pt EW at his current best odds of 25/1. He is one of the classiest in the field in his best form.

1 pt EW 25/1 Sky Bet

5:10 curragh

Just a quick extra longshot. Norville is a much bigger price here than I expected and of a very good mark looks worth a min bet at 40/1 ew with coral.

1/2 point ew 40/1 coral .
