Another huge Saturday of racing with Ascot and Wetherby taking centre stage over the jumps. Wetherby has invested a fortune in finally bringing the track up to scratch and now at last boasts some decent facilities as well as brilliant jumps racing.
The Charlie Hall rightly takes centre stage but the 2.40 BET365 known as the West Yorkshire Hurdle is a cracker in its own right. At such an early part of the season there has to be an element of guesswork so it’s often best to look at Trainers who have their strings in good early season nick. It’s a long season of course and though this is a good race in it’s own right there may be some here who are just having an early season sighter to put them spot on for other challenges further down the line.
Fergal O’Brien has certainly started the season in good form and he tends to have his charges very fit so we can safely assume that applies to Colins Sister in this. At 16/1 each way it certainly looks a great bet as Colins Sister was a highly progressive performer last season winning four races on the bounce. What particularly interests me here is that one of those wins was first time up. Those were mares races and now she takes on the boys with a very tasty weight allowance and the sticky ground will be no problem to her.
Lets take 16/1 and help make her brother Colin very proud.
Have a great punting weekend I have some more big priced gambles today at Wetherby and it’s not too late to join in.
