Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with two strong fancies from Warwick and Catterick...
"He is bound to have been well prepared for this and is fairly priced at 4.47/2 on the exchange"
Back Accomplice in the 15:10 at Exeter
Song to hit high note
13:40 Warwick - Song For Someone
Song For Someone should prove difficult to beat in this Juvenile hurdle.
This likeable individual put in a much improved effort when beating Praeceps at Newbury in December. He made all the running, and pulled clear to win with complete authority. The runner-up has since won giving the form a nice boost. I think he has more to offer, and is reasonably priced at 2.982/1 on the exchange.
Nebuchadnezzar merits consideration. He is improving with racing and receives plenty of weight from the selection. At present he is trading at 5.59/2 on the exchange.
Accomplice a huge threat
15:10 Exeter - Accomplice
Accomplice is my idea of the winner of this interesting novices' hurdle.
This gelding won a conditions hurdle on debut at Fontainebleau last November. He beat a large field in convincing fashion and clearly has ability. He makes his UK debut for trainer Paul Nicholls who is in super form at present. He is bound to have been well prepared for this and is fairly priced at 4.47/2 on the exchange.
Ask Dillon heads the market at 3.7511/4 on the exchange. He impressed when beating Larkbarrow Lad at Ascot in December, and may attract further support. I am not convinced he will be as effective over today's shorter trip, and may get tapped for toe when the chips are down.
