IT’S a new week and another chance for a profitable one with Bully’s Bankers.
I’ve got three up my sleeves across the cards to cheer up a dull Monday otherwise.
2.35 Whatswrongwithyou – A small, but select and well-matched field line up here and I’m siding with the main man Nicky Henderson.
Whatswrongwithyou made an encouraging start to life over fences at Haydock and should have learnt enough to take this.
He’s comfortably got the best hurdling form out of these and having Nico De Boinville back in the saddle is a plus.
3.25 Native Robin – Jeremy Scott continues to have a good time of things and this nine-year-old should appreciate the return to better ground in a weaker race.
He still looks like there’s a bit of wiggle room off this mark and he’s won over course and distance in the past.
Stage Summit is the threat, but should hopefully set up the market for my fancy.
Bully’s Monday Bankers
Ffos Las 2.35: Whatswrongwithyou – In the right hands and would have learnt plenty over the Haydock fences
Fontwell 3.25: Native Robin – Dropped in grade and returns to his preferred ground
Wolverhampton 5.45: Dark Alliance – Likes it here and won’t need to improve much in weak field
5.45 Dark Alliance – There’s some good racing on the all weather in the build up to the All Weather Champs. But my fancy comes in a claimer.
He was unlucky in running two starts back over course and distance and bumped into one on his previous outing.
He won’t have to improve much to take this for this in form yard.
