Nick Shiambouros is hoping for better luck today with a selection from Southwell and one from Lingfield...
"I think this three mile journey will suit this promising individual down to the ground, and is fairly priced at 4.84/1 on the exchange"
13:25 Southwell - For Instance
For Instance should make his presence felt in this interesting event.
This point winner finished second to Toby Lerone at Towcester just over a year ago. He ran on really well on the run-in and was only just denied. I think this three mile journey will suit this promising individual down to the ground, and is fairly priced at 4.84/1 on the exchange.
The favourite is Minella Aris who is trading at 2.829/5. This gelding was turned over at short odds behind Shanroe Street at Ayr last season. He did not jump with any fluency, and was easily brushed aside when the chips were down. This Irish import finished second in a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown which reads well in the context of this race. He rates as the main danger, but may have his own ideas about the game.
14:40 Lingfield - Third Act
Third Act looks like the horse to beat in this handicap hurdle.
This gelding beat Jaunty Flight in a similar event at Exeter earlier this month. He found plenty for pressure on the run-in, and was well on top at the finish. He runs off the same mark today and I am expecting a similar effort. He is trading at 3.259/4 on the exchange which is more than fair.
Sleepy Haven merits consideration. He took a tumble at the final flight at Haydock earlier this month, but is better than the bare result suggests. He is currently trading at 10.519/2 and is worth a saver at that price.
