Well we didn’t have the best festival overall yet one horse really stood out for us it was our biggest bet of the week and he won in good style. This horse we put out in this newsletter weeks ago after winning comfortably for the main service. HAZEL HILL in the foxhunters. Travelled like a dream and stayed on powerfully to win convincingly. So pleased for his connections we told you they thought he was the best horse they had ever trained and now that is proven so. He’s only really been tested this year. A shame for a horse with all that talent he could have been anything under rules.
We are now looking forward to Aintree and the National Meeting. Looks to me like Tiger Roll could be unstoppable in the National. He is in great form and destroyed the Cross-country field in a cantor. It’s hard to look anywhere else after that performance. We will start to provide Aintree incites from next weeks Newsletter.
Ok let’s have a couple of free tips…
Taunton 2-20 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 19f
KAUTO THE KING 15/2 ran better than the form suggests he got tired after going off a little too keenly and after hitting the 2nd last came home in his own time. That looked ok on the clock and a horse that just finished a length in front of him was 138 rated TARA FLOW he ran really well next time out. So the form of that race looks very good for the grade. Kauto goes off rated 118 for this and he looks well in to me.
Wetherby 3-15 Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 24f
Brydon Boy should like the return to Soft going at Wetherby and he can out run his huge odds of 18/1. He will need to bounce back after a lack lustre run last time but on his best form he is capable. The yard are starting to find some form and it’s reported he’s well at home. One worry is if they go off slow he hasn’t got the pace to keep up if they quicken. We will be hoping for a decent even pace and he can stay on at the finish.
