Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his best bet Miss Heritage won. Nick returns with two selections from Newbury and Ludlow...
"She is improving with racing, and fully expect her to move forward"
Back Go Millie Go at 4.84/1 in the 13:30 at Ludlow
John the poet
12:20 Newbury - John Betjeman
John Betjeman is my idea of the winner of this interesting race.
This gelding caught the eye on hurdles debut when finishing second to Zamani at Fontwell earlier this month. He kept on really well in the closing stages, and finished well clear of the third placed horse. This was a promising introduction and should progress further. He was no great shakes on the level, but should make his presence felt over hurdles. At present he is trading at 6.411/2 on the exchange.
Fraser Island is the obvious danger. He was a fair handicapper for Mark Johnston and makes his debut for Nicky Henderson. It is no surprise to see him trading at 2.447/5 on the exchange.
Millie the one
13:30 Ludlow - Go Millie Go
Go Millie Go should go close in this mares only novices' hurdle.
This mare finished second to Juge Et Parti at Hereford last month. She held every chance two flights from home, but was beaten for speed and had to settle for a place. She is improving with racing, and fully expect her to move forward. At present she is trading at 4.84/1 on the exchange.
Subway Surf is the current favourite at 2.9215/8 on the exchange. She finished a respectable third on hurdles debut to Winter Getaway at Warwick. She is another improver, and is the main danger to the selection.
