A complete non-event yesterday with both of Alan's selections non-runners. He's hoping for Tuesday's picks at least turning up in a boosted 80/1 double for the evening...
"Priced up at 7/1, he arrives into the race off the back of a good run when finishing second at Thirsk over 6f behind Ustath."
Polar the main selection
Heather Main's Polar Cloud won over course and distance last time out with plenty in hand, and he can defy the 5lb rise to score again.
It's a reasonably strong race for the grade with a fair bit of winning form on offer, but Polar Cloud won basically eased down with a liking for a more preferential standard of opposition.
He previously caught the eye travelling strongly in a race at the track over 1m, so I think he's still a horse that could be ahead of his mark.
All eyes on Kolussus in the finale
The former Michael Dods trained Kolussus looks such a well-handicapped horse, I am going with him to win the finale at Newcastle. The contest is also an EXTRA PLACE SPECIAL on the SPORTSBOOK.
Priced up at 7/1, he arrives into this off the back of a good run when finishing second at Thirsk over 6f behind Ustath.
That was very much a return to form and he is thrown in from 59 considering he was rated 80 in 2018. Although clearly this can be a bit dangerous, as he has been on the downgrade for a while, rather than just being well treated.
But Thirsk was a definite step in the right direction.
Split your stakes between the boosted win double and an each-way double.
