Betfair Ambassador Paul Nicholls discusses his Sunday afternoon runners at Stratford and Wincanton together with a likelihood of a winner within the opening race at the Somerset course…
“Shantou Flyer remains in good form and really should be winning this with his enthusiastic owner rider David Maxwell back in the saddle.”
Jeremy can proceed progress and Pass newest check
He has made good progress this season and once more ran very nicely when simply overwhelmed by Champagne Mystery at Kempton final month with the remainder of the sector miles behind. I’m positive going left handed will go well with Jeremy Pass who has only one opponent The Bull McCabe.
Should be successful this
He was a helpful handicapper in his day and ran proper up to his finest when staying on stoutly to be third within the Kim Muir off a mark of 140 at the Cheltenham Festival ridden by Harry Cobden. Shantou Flyer stays in good kind and actually needs to be successful this together with his enthusiastic proprietor rider David Maxwell again within the saddle.
Ludicrous mark makes victory unlikely
He has been very disappointing and his mark of 100 remains to be far too excessive on what he has proven this season. Last time at Taunton he carried 11st 10lbs in a 0-105 handicap, was overwhelmed 22 lengths after which dropped 5lbs. That’s ludicrous. I can’t see that he will probably be successful something off his present mark.
Opportunity knocks for constant runner
She has been operating constantly at her degree and has had a little break after two exhausting races at Musselburgh the place she received in February after which completed second final time. This appears to be like a good alternative for Get The Appeal in a priceless race for a Class three handicap towards 4 opponents.
Promising kind faces formidable opponent
He’s a promising kind who will benefit from the good floor and confirmed his liking for the course with a pleasing success final time over the identical journey. But strictly on kind you’d have to say that Casa Loupi will probably be exhausting to beat.
Good likelihood of getting off the mark
I assumed he formed nicely on his debut run at Fontwell in testing situations late in February. He has happy at dwelling since then, will want the higher floor at Wincanton and has a good likelihood of getting off the mark.
