Curragh 3:20

This race looks a pure 2 horse race to me between Kingman and War Command. Aidan O’Brien’s charge was poor enough in the English equivalent but is sure to improve for the run and put in the best 2yo performances of last year. The Favourite looks the most likely winner particularly given the softer than ideal ground but if it stays at the currant yielding then War Command is certainly not an 8/1 shot here. He looks more of a 5/1 shot and those sorts of margins have to be taken.

1 Point win 8/1 Generally

Haydock 2:05

This is a difficult race to start of the Scoop6 and a similar kind of case can be make for most of the field so I’m going with what looks the value bet here in Cruis tothelimit. He didn’t finish his race well at all last time out but he should improve for that and is back to within 2lbs of his last winning mark at Chester last year.  He also has Superstar claimer Oisin Murphy claiming 3lbs today. He has come back from poor runs to win and run well numerous times in the past and 25/1 is bigger than I would have expected. I’ll be keeping these sprint handicaps to the min bet this summer as they are for the most part a lottery with a huge element of luck..
