A good day today as MARTINHAL returned an advised 10/3 winner to ensure us of a profitable day. Here are tomorrow’s three tips.
ROYAL PRETENDER (13.05 Doncaster, 1pt win @2/1)
A lot of promising youngster’s cross-swords in this appealing Maiden Hurdle, but the one horse that sets the standard on the form available is the Alan King-trained ROYAL PRETENDER, who should take plenty of beating in a bid to see the winner’s enclosure for the first time.
Sent off at 33/1, in what looked an above-average Maiden Hurdle at Chepstow, Royal Pretender showed distinct signs of promise when keeping on strongly to not be beaten all that far. The form has been upheld several times since, in which the winner Star Gate and runner-up Everglow have gone on to advertise the strength of the form. He repeated the dose against similar opposition when chasing home smart pair, Danny Kirwan and Time Flies By at Ascot, gradually reducing the deficit as the line approached.
You can make a strong reference that Alan King’s charge will take a significant drop down in grade for tomorrow’s event and this sort of level should provide opportunities for better reward with the slightly longer trip sure to prompt improvement.
SOLWARA ONE (14.05 Doncaster, 1pt win @7/2)
Truckers Pass and L’incorrigible stand out on the form available over hurdles, but at the likely odds it could be worth siding with SOLWARA ONE. His win last time out was undoubtedly far from impressive, but he got the job done despite doing plenty wrong and confirmed the promise of his second on debut, which has worked out particularly well.
The winner, second and fourth have advertised the strength of that form by all winning since over hurdles. On that evidence, Neil Mulhollands lightly-raced seven-year-old has an excellent chance and the initial 7-2 on offer looks seemingly generous, given the fact that this horse primarily has the scope and potential to be a formidable prospect at this level.
MISTY BLOOM (15.10 Doncaster, 0.5pts each-way @8/1)
MISTY BLOOM possesses some useful pieces of form and is selected to provide us with a solid run for our money in this wide-open event. Emma Lavelle’s eight-year-old mare enjoyed a fruitful 2020, winning twice last season and returned to form when third to two higher-rated individuals last time.
The assessor has dropped her another 1Ib for that latest performance and this race has an easier look to it. With that being said, it’s hard to envisage her not being involved in this comparatively weaker-event and she seems sure to go well with the bulk of the opposition likely to struggle.
