Alan Dudman fired in another decent price winner yesterday with Coiste Bodhar's Southwell success at an advised [7.0]. Our in-form man sticks with the all-weather and has two more bets planned for Wednesday...
"Richard Fahey's runner is a real 7f specialist, who rarely runs a bad race. This handicap looks quite open to me, and Right Touch has come down to a mark he can certainly win from now at 87."
16:00 Chelmsford - Back Tavener @ [6.0]
Starting with a bet in Essex, and it's a case of keeping it fairly simple by backing the front-runner.
The pacesetter in question in this small field is Tavener, and he can win this right at the start by bouncing out. Others in the field like to sit handy, but Tavener stays 7f and drops back to 6f tonight - which could present ideal conditions to dictate again.
Last time out was a disaster at Kempton; a race where he went off far too fast in front and emptied quickly.
The 6yo is probably near the limit of winning with his rating at 75, but he had bits and pieces of form running from marks in the high 70s during the turf Flat campaign last summer. I thought he was reasonably priced on the Sportsbook last night at 5/1, as he will have a chance to run to his best.
18:25 Wolverhampton - Back Right Touch @ [7.0]
The all-weather has been kind to us this week, so we return to Wolverhampton for a decent 0-95 handicap on Wednesday evening to back Right Touch at [7.0].
Richard Fahey's runner is a real 7f specialist, who rarely runs a bad race. This handicap looks quite open to me, and Right Touch has come down to a mark he can certainly win from now at 87. He was rated at 97 during the summer on the turf.
His latest run at Lingfield was a better race than tonight's, but he was done no favours by the steady pace set by the eventual winner, as he had to come from further back than ideal. That was quite a muddling affair anyway.
I liked his run previously at "Leafy" in a 0-95. He travelled well behind Shyron, and picked up second from a similar mark. He is well up to winning in this grade, and I am hopeful he can act around Wolverhampton as this will be his first try at the track.
Right Touch is unexposed on the all-weather, hopefully he can go well from a good draw.
