Nick Shiambouros landed a nice double yesterday when both of his selections won. Nick hopes to end his current stint in the chair on a high with a couple of winners at Wolverhampton...
"This lightly raced filly was backed off the boards at Brighton last month when finishing a close fourth to Sequester. She met a fair bit of interference a furlong from home, and would have finished a little closer with a clear run."
18:15 Wolverhampton - Phyllis Maud
Punting in these amateur events is not really my thing but Phyllis Maud stands out.
This lightly raced filly was backed off the boards at Brighton last month when finishing a close fourth to Sequester. She met a fair bit of interference a furlong from home, and would have finished a little closer with a clear run.
Trainer Simon Chrisford has done very well in his rookie season. He places his horses well and has found another good opportunity for this three-year-old filly. In addition the booking of Serena Brotherton is a plus.
She is trading at 2.546/4 on the exchange and I have backed her at this price.
The well related Full Of Speed looks like the main danger to the selection. He finished a creditable second at Kempton earlier this month and may have more to offer.
21:15 Wolverhampton - Oasis Spear
I think Oasis Spear has a super chance of upsetting the favourite Liberality in this maiden.
This gelding finished third to Uele River at Windsor earlier this month. He held every chance two furlongs from home, but could only stay on at the one pace when the chips were down. That was his best piece of form to date and I am expecting a bold showing.
He is trading at a reasonable 3.02/1 on the exchange.
Liberality is the main danger to the selection. This filly finished second behind Monasada in a six runner affair at Nottingham. There appeared to be no apparent excuse for the defeat and her current price of 2.1211/10 represents poor value.
