Three from Three winning selections yesterday has FTM in top form and so they hope to continue their good run today at Aintree.
In the 13:40 2m 1f Juvenile Hurdle, For Two has drifted from an early 2.305/4 out to 3.1511/5. Paul Nicholls usually doesvery well with his French recruits, and he made a winning start to his hurdling career at Auteil in March. It is perhaps interesting, however, that the next two in the market, Moidore and Handazan have been well supported, with their price contracting from higher early exchanges. For Two has to lump a 5lb penalty for his earlier win so, all in all, punters want to take him on today.
We move on to the 14:50 3m Handicap Hurdle now where Ely Brown has seen solid support and can now be backed at 7.26/1 from as high as 13.5 earlier. The selection has shown a useful level of form and the going will certainly suit. This is his first run for trainer Charlie Longsdon who is known to do well with his new recruits. Ely Brown looks to have a fighting chance at a still decentprice off bottom weight this afternoon.
One to note at a shorter price in the 16:00 Novice Hurdle over 2m4f is new Donald McCain recruit Clondaw Kaempfer. Hehas been confidently backed early doors from 2.6613/8 in to 2.0421/20. The selection won on his last start for his old yard in a Fairyhousebumper last year before being sold for big money ($130,000). This looks to be a nice start to what could be a promising season, and withthe money down, Clondaw Kaempfer is taken to get the win today.
