Alan Dudman had a decent priced winner at 10.09/1 yesterday at Uttoxeter, and he is sticking with the jumping action at Stratford on Monday for his two bets...
"He showed more than enough with the way he went through that Newton Abbot race to remain of interest at such an early stage of his career."
Waters can bounce back after two flops
15:50 Stratford - Back Between The Waters @ 6.05/1
The 15:50 looks one of the most open races on the card - mainly down to question marks attached to nearly all of the field. However, if Jamie Snowden's Between The Waters can replicate his effort when finishing second at the track in the summer, he has a chance.
That victory came in July on good ground and he looked every inch a stayer over the 2m7f (that he again faces today), winning from 110.
He probably hasn't got an awful lot in hand, but he has the promising Ben Hicks on, and his claim of 10lb helps.
The 8yo has been running over 2m4f recently, and disappointed at that distance last time out at Uttoxeter.
Back up to a more suitable trip on Monday, he can go close from a price at around 6.05/1.
Keep Hawke's Onboard onside
16:20 Stratford - Back Onboard @ 4.03/1
Sticking with Stratford, I am hoping we can double up on the day with the second bet with Nigel Hawke's Onboard over the hurdles.
This horse made his handicap debut last time at Newton Abbot and caught the eye with not only the way he travelled, but also his lack of know-how when the tempo lifted, but he ran on to finish second.
He met some trouble in that too.
Up 4lb to a mark of 109, this doesn't look a particularly deep race and he showed more than enough with the way he went through that Newton Abbot race to remain of interest at such an early stage of his career.
Seven pound conditional jockey Kieran Buckley rode him on that occasion, and he stays on. His mount also has fitness on his side.
