Alan Dudman’s two selections both were pipped to the post, with Apparate beaten at [1.40] in-running. He hopes for two winners on Sunday with his Stratford picks.
Break can serve Teqany well for O’Brien debut
Yesterday was tough with two seconds; with both outstayed in the closing stages at Newmarket.
Maybe there could be another low trade with the second selection of the day, but I am hoping we can get off to a winning start with Teqany in the feature Stratford Summer Salver at 15:35.
He won as a novice over fences when last seen in Ireland, and won well, by 18 lengths.
That victory came at Tramore, a track he has shown a liking for. It’s a speedy little circuit that one, and his nimbleness and ability to whizz around there should serve him well at Stratford.
He makes his debut for Fergal O’Brien and runs back over hurdles with good ground to suit. He should also be up there in terms of the pace.
Crucially he has scored after an absence previously of 244 days, and he makes his reappearance off a similar sort of break.
Hidden can add to win tally – if he concentrates
The drop back to 17f might do the trick for Richard Hawker’s Hidden Charmer, and he warrants a small interest in the 17:20 Handicap Chase.
The 7yo ran at the track over slightly further when last seen. He went off quite hard, although the switch to positive tactics sparked some improvement. He finished second and could have won, had he not switched off and dossed around in the closing stages.
Clearly with that in mind, he is the type to trade shorter in-running, so it would be advisable to place a lay bet at around [1.70], as he has been beaten in his last two races at similar sort of prices.
He has the champion jockey Richard Johnson on today, and with a more controlled ride from the front in the retained blinkers hopefully he can get his head in front.
