.Charlie’s Tuesday Selections
.Yarmouth 1.40 Mooltazem 4-1
. 90,000gns purchase and a half brother to French 6f winner Gold Vibe. Gosden has been firing in the winners lately and this could be another one to add to the collection.
.Hexam 3.25 Heist 5-1
.Has 4 wins and Two 3rd places from last 6 races latest of those over fences at Ludlow over 3m 1f back in October. Races off 4lb lower over hurdles on return and looks the one to be on.
.Punchestown 7.15 Jetez 13-2
.looks nicely bred being related to the classy Jezki . Is also related to Jenari and Jetson who were also nicely bred animals. J Harrington is enjoying a great spell at the moment and Jetez could be another star from that yard.
