Saturday’s Racing Tips: Harry will show he means business
There are plenty of pre-Christmas treats in store this Saturday with the Channel 4 cameras set to cover the best of the action from Ascot and Haydock.
The Long Walk Hurdle and Wessex Youth Trust Handicap Hurdle are your highlights from Berkshire while on Merseyside the card-closing handicap hurdle looks a tasty affair.
Those are three races we’ve focused on. And having notched up two winners and a place from last week’s Saturday selections we’re feeling pretty confident heading into this latest assault.
Check out our best bets…
Unowhatimeanharry has been backed off the boards all week and we’re more than happy to jump on the bandwagon.
The Long Walk Hurdle jolly has gone six from six since joining Harry Fry and he can make it a magnificent seven when he rocks up in Berkshire.
As pointed out earlier in the week, six of the last 10 favourites have taken this prize and the recent Long Distance Hurdle winner can add his name to that roll-call.
Alex De Larredya and Ptit Zig are threats but neither offers enough to turn us away from the market leader.
More than half the field here won last time out so it’s no easy task attempting to solve this puzzle.
But we think we’ve found the answer in El Terremoto. Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge was a course and distance winner last time out, proving he can handle both this track and some cut in the ground when scoring by two-and-three-quarter lengths.
He’ll have to defy a 6lb rise to complete a hat-trick of wins but we think that’s a task he can successfully negotiate.
Clyne, Super Sam and Draytonian also merit attention in what’s set to be a thrilling contest.
Alan King’s progressive type Who Dares Wins is sure to attract some each-way money in the run-up to the race formerly known as The Ladbroke Hurdle.
And it’s easy to see why he’s being talked up as a lively outsider following an impressive nine-length win at Newbury.
In the hands of a trainer who knows exactly how to get the best out of juvenile hurdlers, the in-form four-year-old shouldn’t find himself outclassed here.
Also, with leading fancies Golden Spear and Meet the Legend both returning from long absences this could be the perfect time for our selection to further enhance his reputation.
