Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Wednesday 6th February
Glittering Love is unbeaten in two since tackling larger obstacles and proved his stamina over three miles when staying on strongly to win over course and distance in soft ground last month. He is also two from two since being partnered with Brian Hughes and hails from a yard who likes their winners at the track so with just a 5lbs rise to contend with he should be capable of another visit to the winners’ enclosure here.
Julia Brooke has saddled three winners from four runners in the last twelve months at the course but muddies the waters by sending two for this race. Ashes Corner makes his chase debut over a new trip so the most likely of the two to get involved looks to be Vasco D’ycy who also has questions to answer on return from almost two years off the track. He did win on return from a similar break earlier in his career, although has done all his winning thus-far over hurdles and over shorter trips so may be best watched.
A final mention goes the way of Road To Gold who is another who has shown best form over the smaller obstacles but does have course form to his name and as a multiple winner in heavy ground could come in to his own if any rain arrives.
GLITTERING LOVE (WIN) – NAP
The majority of the field arrive here in poor form so I am happy to take a chance on Finaghy Ayr who looked to need the run on return from a ten month break when last seen in January. His last victory came in a much higher class on his second run of last season so I am hoping that we see something similar today. He has made the frame in three from seven over course and distance and is partnered with Derek Fox who has one win and two placed from four rides on the eleven-year-old so all things considered he looks worth an each-way play in a race that lacks depth.
One that does arrive in decent form in McGinty’s Dream but a 11lbs hike for victory last time out will undoubtedly make things tougher and a course record of seven runs without even a place tempers enthusiasm even further.
Fergiethelegend and See Double You are others that have shown some promise in recent runs but neither are prolific winners and both look likely to fall short again here today.
