I have a busy day Wednesday with 5 big official SYNDICATE SUPERCLUB Members racing bets as we build up to the new year.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A LATE EXTRA INFORMATION 11/2 BET ON THE LATE INFO TAB TODAY!
EACH WAY NUMBER 14 CLOSE ENOUGH 3.40 LIMERICK
Ian power rides this 5 year old mare, who steps up in trip to 2 miles and half, which will definitely suit, she has shown promise on numerous occasions, and the heavy ground will help also bring her undoubted stamina into play, 7th of 12 in her last race, (November) when she needed the run, should have her spot on now, and CLOSE ENOUGH will be a big price in this 21 runner handicap, bookmakers are paying 5 places and enhanced places also.
EACH WAY NUMBER 5 BENNYS BRIDGE 1.38 DONCASTER
Trained by bang in form Sam Drinkwater, 4 winners from past 5 runners, BENNYS BRIDGE has a solid chance of adding to the yard fine run of form, formally trainer by Fergal Obrien, Drinkwater, seems to have rekindled BENNYS BRIDGE and his 2 runs for his new trainer both at Wetherby has shown me that he is no back number, dropping in the weights by 4lb, and with Jonathan Burke in the saddle for the first time, This is a 7 runner race, and I will be disappointed if my selection is not in the first 2 home.
EACH WAY NUMBER 1 KALOOKI 2.50 DONCASTER
Phillip Hobbs trained KALOOKI is down in grade, and a fresh horse coming into this race, after running at Newbury last time out, in a race that did not suit his style of racing, I think this event will be much more to his liking, the same Jockey Tom Obrien rides. I am very sweet on the 7 year old grey gelding showing his class and proving it tomorrow
EACH WAY NUMBER 3 KAVANAGHS CORNER 12.20 LIMERICK
This is a veterans race, for older horses and my selection is 12 years old, Young Emma Twomey rides him, and claims a valuable 7lb-trained by the brilliant Henry De Bromhead, Emma actually won on him in a ladies race at Fairyhouse so get on well with the gelding, well handicapped of a mark of 118, the step back in trip will suit really well, and I am sure KAVANAGHS CORNER will run a big race and can win.
EACH WAY NUMBER 3 LADY VILLANELLE 2.27 KELSO
6 Year old mare, Trained by Donald Whillans is very lightly raced and is expected to go close in this mares 0-120 handicap hurdle, her mark is in freefall and has dropped another 3lb since her last run, ground and trip are fine, and this is a very poor event, I take LADY VILLANELLE to step up from her last race where she came home 5th of 10 at Carlisle, having needed the run.
