Alan Dudman's Sandown selection won yesterday - and Waseem Faris returned at a BSP of 20.0. Our man signs off for the week with bets at Doncaster and Newbury for Thursday....
"He finished second at Newbury last month in the same grade and travelled smoothly. That came over 1m2f, and he steps up in trip this evening."
Fell to do it again at Donny
17:15 Doncaster - Back Muatadel @ 6.05/1
Roger Fell is on course for a personal best season by a long way, and I like the look of his sprinter Muatadel in the Doncaster opener.
He won this race last year from 68 and is just 2lb higher. He travelled on the pace fairly smoothly 12 months ago, and he can make his presence felt from top weight.
The 5yo performed with credit over course and distance last time and the handicapper has actually dropped him 2lb for finishing second.
He acts on both good to firm and soft, and I won't mind if the watering will take the sting out of the ground.
Loving Cunningham-Brown's work
17:35 Newbury - Back Loving Your Work @ BSP
Trainer Ken Cunningham-Brown done the column a massive favour yesterday with Waseem Faris, and I am sticking once again with the yard in the search of a decent price winner. And it showed yesterday, never be put off by drifter. The horse went out from 6/1 to 14/1 and won quite comfortably.
Firstly, insert disclaimer time, it's an Amateur Riders' Handicap.
However, the price of the selection Loving Your Work on the Sportsbook of 11/1 more than compensates for that, as the market usually centres on Serena Brotherton and Simon Walker - and rightly so as the top jockeys in this sphere.
Loving Your Work goes very well at Newbury and loves fast ground, and he's the type to be played late from a pace. He finished second at Newbury last month in the same grade and travelled smoothly. That came over 1m2f, and he steps up in trip this evening.
He's well handicapped from 54 and hopefully can add to his tally at the track.
