Nick Shiambouros returns with two decent priced selections from Beverley and Sandown on Wednesday...


"He ran a blinder under a penalty in a Listed race at HQ in the spring when beaten a head by Taamol"

Back Larchmont Lad in the 15:05 at Sandown

14:55 Beverley - How Bizarre


How Bizarre could run well at a decent price in this novice stakes.

This gelding caught the eye on debut when finishing fourth to Arabian Jazz at Musselburgh earlier this month. He missed the break, but finished strongly and was gaining on the principals at the finish. His pedigree suggests he will handle the rain softened ground and improvement is expected. At present he is trading at 7.413/2 on the exchange which is about right.

Vera Drake was narrowly beaten in a Lingfield maiden earlier this month. She finished with a fair old rattle to grab second place near the line. She is heading in the right direction, and is currently priced at 3.7511/4 on the exchange.


15:05 Sandown - Larchmont Lad


I am going to take a chance with Larchmont Lad in this interesting Listed event.

This lightly raced colt makes his debut for conditioner David O'Meara. His last run behind Frankus at Haydock is best forgotten as he clearly did not stay. He ran a blinder under a penalty in a Listed race at HQ in the spring when beaten a head by Taamol. This was a solid piece of form, and a reproduction of that effort would see him in the mix. At present he is trading at 11.521/2 on the exchange which is more than fair.

D'bai is the favourite at 3.1511/5. He certainly has the form in the book to take this, but his price is way too short in this competitive looking race.
