Following a frustrating day yesterday, Steve Ryder previews three races on Monday 14th January. P&L -4.54pts.
2:25 Fontwell- Midnight Bliss 3/1 (1pt)
Midnight Bliss was profilic in PTPs last year with form figures of U2212111 before resuming that progress when switched back to racing under rules. She won a handicap chase at Fakenham off 78 by 11 lengths before following up at this course off 13lb higher. She was then raised a further 8lb by the handicapper but only went down narrowly in second off a mark of 99 at Southwell with all three of those runs coming under Bryony Frost.
Midnight Bliss jumped poorly under an amateur rider last time so she looks to hold strong claims with Bryony Frost back aboard off a mark of 101.
2:35 Ffos Las- Potters Story 5/1 (1pt)
Potters Story was a good hurdler who is 2/2 at Ffos Las in his career. He won a handicap hurdle off a mark of 122 in 2017 by 21 lengths for which he was raised to a mark of 133 before injury kept him off for nearly a year. Potters Story made a low key return in a handicap hurdle at Newbury but it was no doubt a prep run before he was sent over fences and on his best form he isn’t far behind the odds on favourite Whatswrongwithyou.
The Peter Bowen yard has found form recently and if Potters Story can jump well on his chase debut then he will have a big chance of causing an upset.
7:45 Wolverhampton- Tha’ir 50/1 (0.5pt ew)
Tha’ir was a high class performer for Godolphin earlier on his career who was only beaten a head in a Group 3 where he achieved a rating of 108. Following an injury he moved yards in 2017 and won three times over this C&D for Michael Appleby off marks of 76 and two claimers when rated 79.
Tha’ir now drops into a Class 6 handicap off a mark of 60 having dropped 12lb in three runs for Olly Williams and is worth chancing at huge odds with four places on offer.
