Quite a few sprints around the various courses today and I seem to have found some bigger prices today to be playing.
1550 Haydock Perfect Blossom EW @33/1
I am against the fav here in Master Bond.. yes it won lto, however its last 3 winning marks have been off 73 and it also prefers it softer than it will get today. I would go against Flash City as well despite its 2nd lto it is 0-24 on turf and just 1 win in 31. Perfect Blossom though has 8 wins from 32 over 5f and all on good to firm or good ground. It was last of 5 lto, hoever not far but it looks like a very good race and at 33/1 I have to have an EW bet. Sleepy Blue Ocean has course form here and is also a danger after going to quick lto at Beverley.
1615 Newbury Swendab @11/1
Taking a little risk here with Swendab’s form of late, however all its wins have been on this ground and it does have course form with a win and a place. The thing that interests me is the booking of Hughes. O Shea only books the top jocks when the horse has a chance.
1530 Nottingham Excels Beauty @12/1
Its 2 runs this year have been disappointing getting swallowed up by the pack 1f out at Bath in a listed contest while not enjoying the tight Chester course, however look at the form as a 2yo and its mark today of 89 looks pretty fair. I don’t think this is the strongest race today for the class and Random Success may win this at a canter but it is inexperienced on the turf and was only just ahead of Burren View Lady lto who was 3l beaten fav last night in an apprentice race.
