Race of the Day – 14:40 Taunton
This is quite an open looking handicap hurdle at Taunton over two miles and three furlongs, with seven of the eight runners priced in single figures.
Harry Fry is in excellent current form, with half of his runners getting a place over the past month. He runs the top weight Hint Of Mint here today.
Paul Nicholls is another in great form, and he also has decent figures at the course. From the past five years he has 53 winners (30.11%) and 113 places (64.30%) from 176 runners.
The Instant Expert report is free to all users on a Thursday, and it is one of the favourite reports of the geegeez members.
Hint Of Mint looks particularly good on the place setting. He has three sections of green and two of amber, showing that he is nicely suited by today’s race conditions. He is one of only two runners in the field to have raced on today’s going, which could prove crucial. He is also five pounds lower than his last winning mark, so at a current price of 7/1, he looks to have excellent place claims and warrants further inspection.
Winning Spark is another who shows up well, also having three sections of green and one of amber.
The Pace tab shows that leaders have a very useful record, with almost 22% of them taking the win for a level stakes profit of 57.24.
Newsworthy looks sure to be taking them along, or at least being very handy, as he has easily the best ‘pace’ score and is at his best when doing so.
Alexander The Grey, Hint Of Mint and Diamond Rock are others that are likely to be up with the pace, and given half of the field like to get on with things, it looks like it could be run at a good speed. This may well catch a few of them out that aren’t used to racing on such firm ground.
