Moore good action at Wincanton but market moves are at Newcastle

The Maiden Hurdle from 2 p.m. to Ludlow looks like an open contest on paper, and in recent years the race has seen 100/1, 1/22 and 1/20 winners. Don’t be afraid of the price!

Jockey Lucy Turn has a 38% strike rate at Ludlow, and she rides on Fortguard 4.03/1 within 2:30 p.m. for Venetia Williams.

In the 15:00 Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Ludlow, Terresita 3.02/1 will be looking for back-to-back handicap wins after an impressive performance at Fakenham in his last outing and looks well ahead of the handicapper on that higher eight-pound handicap mark.

Britain’s first Hunters Chase kicks off at 3.30pm at Ludlow and Jockey Miss Gina Andrews has a 36% strike rate at this location. Today she rides Hogan height. another company 2.98/15 made his debut in this area for Nicky Henderson.

In the 14:15 Handicap Chase, Ms Jane Williams benefits from a 43% strike rate on fences at wincanton, and she saddles the recent winner of the course Spirit of Somoza 4.57/2. It looks like a hot race, however, The one-upmanship 3.55/2 traveled exceptionally well on his hunting debut before going twice to Ffos Las, and he has two honorable races to his name at this site.

In Wincanton, the 15:50 Somerset National Handicap Chase, five of the last ten winners are in double digit ages. Today this reduces the field to Colorado Papers 11.010/1, Captain Chaos 5.04/1 and Forty 26.01/25.

Coach Sam Thomas draws for seven over hurdles at Wincanton, but it has a 30% strike rate with first blinders. Could this be enough to trigger holy welsh 9.08/1 back to life in the 2:45 p.m.?

Paul Mulrennan goes around Ballyare 6.05/1 in the 17:30 Handicap at Newcastle, and it has a 43% strike rate riding for Lucinda Russell here.

Race of the day

We are heading towards wincanton for today’s flagship race, the 13:45 Handicap Hurdle. Many of the eight runners arrive out of shape, and Imphal 2.68/5 as Gary Moore leads the market after a stellar showing in a hot race at Ascot in which he was well worth an upgrade given the nearly race-ending incident on the first flight when he was very seriously hampered by two fallers.

It was a standout Jamie Moore cover. Although he was detached from the main body of the peloton by a good ten lengths, he finished second to a well-supported and extremely handicapped Irish rival.

He’s firmly on the upgrade and is treated well with that two-pound higher mark not only in his recent run in which he managed to beat a useful field, but his bumper and flat shape.

He is thriving and relationships appear to have found the perfect opportunity here, with nearly all of his rivals arriving out of form with something to prove.

He should take a world of beating here.

jepeck went all the way to score at 40/1 odds on the shorter 2m5f trip last time out and will likely try the same tactic today.

Lead runners have a good record at Wincanton, and they can prove difficult to catch, so he has every right to be involved at the finish.

The 13-year-old likely remains a six-pound handicapper more, but that’s a quick turnaround for one his age. He is respected.

St Barts was disappointing on the fences, but it’s too early to give it up, and the return to hurdles could bring it back to life. He still has the potential to rank higher than that 128 handicap mark, but he’s starting to show unreliability, and he’s got the physique of a fighter guy, so maybe that’s a booster of trust more than anything.

Still, he’s the one in the field that might have more to offer, and any market support would be nice.

Big race verdict

Receiving weight all around and firmly on the upgrade with an apology for a great run at Ascot, Gary Moore Imphal certainly seems the way to go. While this track might not be the best suited for those held up at the back of the pitch, there seems to be a good clip here that will fit, and there won’t be many better opportunities for him to win his fourth win of the season. .
