Showdown at Haydock Park
Ascot is a real disappointment today, with the feature race reduced to a 2-horse match. That said, I reckon we have a decent wager in the 3:15 at Ascot in VIVA COLONIA. Coming from the unfashionable Brian Ellison stable, I reckon VIVA COLONIA is underrated, and should be joint fav with Drumshambo. That horse is akso on my alert list but, at the odds, VIVA COLONIA is the value wager at 11/2. Only 7 go to post so it's a win wager.
My other wager is at Haydock but not in the feature race. Previous blog selection CHAC DU CADRAN runs in the 1:15 and I think he should be fav for this race having trip and ground in his favour. It was a silly fall LTO as he over jumped the fence. At 10/1 he has to be an eachway play.
The feature race revolves around CUE CARD. If he stays 3-mile, he wins. Simple as that. But, it is a very strong race, and we just don't know how much ability Tidal Bay retains at 12yo.
Haydock 1:15, CHAC DU CADRAN £5 win & £5 eachway @ 10/1
Ascot 3:15, VIVA COLONIA £10 win @ 11/2
Total stakes= £25
