I’m going to go with the rather obvious Dirty EW bet here with Father Mattie. He is an experienced hurdler with some decent 4yo novice form and I think he will be better suited to his test than the other candidate From Eden. 40/1 is worth a small ew bet.
1 Point EW 40/1 Generally
This is a poor race and I’m going for a relatively inconsistent horse that has improved on the flat since his last hurdles race, The Last Marju . His flat win in May was impressive enough for a poor grade and his maiden hurdle win last year was a decent standard for this type of race. If he is on a going day today 33/1 looks a bit of value here.
1 Point EW 33/1 5 places paddy/lads/coral
Digeanta made the type of first run after a break I like last time out, when travelling well and fading near the finish. If he can improve for that run which seems very likely he looks a huge price for a proven big handicap stayer with a good jockey up in an amateur race.
1 Point win 25/1 365/sporting/paddy 42 on betfair
Thanks Aidan. I could not resist the 50.0EW being offered for Digeanta on the fair…so just had to avail myself.
