Following an 11/4 winner yesterday, Steve Ryder previews three races on Wednesday 17th April. P&L +14.53pts.
2:40 Cheltenham- Highway One O One 13/2 (0.5pt ew)
Highway One O One is a consistent novice chaser who put in a good performance to finish 2nd in the Timeform Novices’ Handicap Chase over this C&D in January. He finished two lengths behind Kildisart giving that rival 2lb and that rival is now rated 15lb higher following his victory at Aintree. The third, Spiritofthegames ran well to finish 3rd in the Brown Advisory Plate to further boost the form so it was disappointing that Highway One O One could only finish 10th in the Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase at Cheltenham.
If Highway One O One can perform up to the level of his run on trials day then he should be involved in the finish of this race.
5:10 Beverley- Archive 3/1(1pt)
Archive has always ran consistently well when rated below 70 since joining Brian Ellison and he gets to run here without a penalty for his Pontefract success eight days ago. He won that Apprentice Handicap by a neck with the pair pulling 2 ½ lengths clear of the re-opposing Bit Of A Quirke in third.
If Archive can run up to the same form today then he should be hard to beat running off the same mark of 69.
8:00 Southwell- Inspired Thought 6/5 (5pt)
Inspired Thought made an impressive winning debut over this C&D two weeks ago beating the well fancied Lofty who was sent off an evens favourite. She was always travelling well throughout the race and only had to be pushed out to win by over a length at the finish.
Inspired Thought has a penalty for her success but so does her market rival Astro Jakk and I would be very disappointed if she couldn’t follow up.
