Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his best bet If The Cap Fits won at 4.67/2 and Nick returns with two decent priced selections from Uttoxeter...
"I think she has ability, and should be ready to do herself justice on hurdles debut"
Balladame ready on hurdles debut
13:40 Uttoxeter - Balladame
I am going to take a chance with Balladame in this mares only event.
This filly ran creditably in two bumpers at Ffos Las last season. On her latest start she was not beaten all that far behind High Change, despite showing signs of inexperience. She tried to deliver a challenge a furlong from home, but she failed to go through with it and had to settle for a place. I think she has ability, and should be ready to do herself justice on hurdles debut. At present she is trading at 26.025/1 in the win market on the exchange. I am going to back her win and place at BSP.
Designer Destiny is the market leader at 3.1511/5 on the exchange. She was beaten a long way in a warm race at Newbury earlier this month, and should appreciate the ease in grade. Her price is a little thin in my opinion.
Fejoada to deliver on handicap debut
15:40 Uttoxeter - Fejoada
Fejoada should make her presence felt in this handicap hurdle.
This French import finished second to the talented Floressa at Worcester on her UK debut. She was badly hampered two from home, but recovered to fill the runner-up position on the run to the line. I thought that was a super effort from this likeable filly. I think she is open to a good deal of improvement, and is fairly priced at 6.86/1 on the exchange.
Song Of The Sky was a wide margin winner of a chase earlier this month, and reverts back to hurdles for this. Not sure she as effective over the smaller obstacles, but must be respected nonetheless. At present she is trading at 3.259/4 on the exchange.
