Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when Ballyoptic won at Uttoxeter. Today Nick is back with a couple of strong fancies from Ffos Las...
"I think he is sitting on a big effort and should go very close"
14:00 Ffos Las - Preseli Rock
Preseli Rock should go close in this maiden hurdle.
Last time out over this course he finished a decent third to Ballyoptic. He delivered a strong challenge two flights from home, but the winner proved the stronger near the finish. The winner did us a favour yesterday by winning again.
I think he is sitting on a big effort and should go very close. His current price of 3.711/4 on the exchange is more than fair.
Hawkhurst is the main danger to the selection.
This gelding unshipped his rider near the line when holding a winning lead at Southwell in December. On his latest start at Cheltenham in January he finished a respectable sixth to the talented Champers On Ice. He was in contention three flights from home but weakened quickly when the chips were down.
16:15 Ffos Las - Apache Outlaw
Apache Outlaw should win again for trainer Rebecca Curtis.
Last time out at Taunton he beat Ministerofinterior in determined fashion. This was his first venture in to selling company, and should pay his way in this sphere.
He does not have a lot to beat and is fairly priced at 2.915/8 on the exchange.
Filatore is a lively outsider at 12.011/1.
He finished a good third to Awaywithegreys at Chepstow in January, and could be competitive with a reproduction of that effort.
