WARWICK WINNERS – TWO PICKS
WARWICK 2:05 SKYTASTIC 4/1
The lightly raced WEST CORK was decent over hurdles, but he’s waited until he’s 8 years old before switching to fences. While that isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker, the son of MIDNIGHT LEGEND was last seen falling in a Haydock hurdle.
The Dan Skelton could turn into a good chaser, but I wouldn’t want to be him blind. Furthermore, his stable have yet to fire on all cylinders, and he’s going to need a run.
Paul Nicholls runner STAGE STAR ran in three bumpers and five hurdles. He won half of those races, and his current racing over hurdles is 140. However, the 6-year-old pulled up the last twice, albeit in grade one races at Cheltenham and Aintree. To make a long story short, he should make a chaser and I can understand why the bookmakers made him a favorite.
Nevertheless, at bigger odds, SKYTASTIC is more interesting. While he was rated 6 & 9 pounds inferior to his rivals over hurdles, he only ran three times in that sphere. Moreover, he was mighty progressive, and he won 4 of his five races.
Sam Thomas will have him well-schooled, and fitness won’t be an issue. Finally, I expect the selection to be natural, and Sam Twiston-Davies is a good jockey booking.
WARWICK WINNERS – TWO PICKS
WARWICK 3:15 REILLY 9/2
When last seen FAIRLAWN FLYER was improving at a fair rate of knots. In fact, he’s the perfect 3/3 over fences, and he won his last race by 10 lengths. While Peter Bowen’s trained 6-year-old can improve further, I have a list of what could count against him!
First and foremost, on his two reappearances, he needed the run. Secondly, he would prefer softer ground than he will encounter today. Lastly, he’s starting the season from an 11-pound higher handicap mark.
Meanwhile, BOUGHTBEFORELUNCH doesn’t make a habit (3/33) out of winning. ROCKEY’S TREASURE has a better strike rate, but the 11-year-old hasn’t won for 23 months. While the Kim Bailey runner is well handicapped, recent efforts suggest he’s going to struggle.
GUETAPAN COLLONGES is capable of winning more races, it’s just that he too would prefer ground softer than this. Also, runners from the JJ O’Neill stable are needing a run, and the 6 years disappointed in his comeback last year.
As for FAVORI DE SIVOLA, he goes well fresh and he’s on a tempting mark.
Nevertheless, I’m sticking with my funds and supporting REILLY. The Skelton’s 5-year-old is in my notebook for the type to make into a much better chaser.
Consequently, he starts his new career from a favorable handicap mark, and he’s going to be suited by this stayers trip!
