I am sat here wondering….. Why you may ask? I just wonder why it’s called Wednesday? Genuinely, does anyone know? Was it because everyone got married on Wednesday? Anyway enough of that. What do we have in store on Wednesday Wonders blog? WE have the usual PN Choices, Charlie’s Wednesday Winners & Final Word. I wonder what I will talk about today? But first…..
Peoples Nap Choices –
Exeter – Soft
1.25- Handicap Hurdle – Class 3 -2m 175y
Brave Eagle – Won on hurdle debut in a 2m class 4 contest at Ludlow by 1 & 3/4 lengths back in January this year. Won again at the end of March at Fontwell, in a class 4 novice hurdle over 2m 3f by 9 lengths, returns for first run since March – 11/4
4.05 – Novice Hurdle – Class 4 – 2m 5f 135y
White Moon – Won on hurdle debut at Wincanton in a class 5 maiden hurdle over 2m 5f by 6 lengths last month, having previously won a3m PTP prior to joining Colin Tizzard. First time tongue tie tomorrow – 7/4
Fairyhouse – Soft to Heavy
2.55 – Novice Hurdle – 2m 4f
Aeglos – Won a 2m hurdle back in July, before returning in late October to finish a 3 & 1/2 length 3rd to Just Janice, who has since won a Down Royal Grade 3 Hurdle – 10/3
PN Result– Firmount Gent & Green & Black – Split Stakes – Both Lost!
I shall pass you to Charlie, who will take you through his Wednesday Winner’s & I will see you for Final Word –
Cheers Rich, my selections for Wednesday are listed below.
Wicked Willy -Won Novice Chase at Huntingdon over 2m 7f and beating Meldrum Lad by 11 length. Has been raised 11lb as a result although may still have more to come if handling the extra weight.
Lord Of The Glen – was 2nd last time out here over 5f just losing by a nose sporting first time visor. Has been raised 7lb for that and may still be involved here with the visor being retained.
Stardrifter -Was 2nd here on all-weather debut last time out to Guncase. The winner of that race has gone close since only just losing out to Honey Badger here last week. Stardrifter should make another bold display from an easier draw this time around and could get off the mark in a similar race.
Well that’s my thoughts on Wednesday’s Selections, Good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will hand you over to Rich for the Final Word.
Final Word –
Big thanks to everyone for the response regarding my Interview, I hope you all enjoy reading it. It was certainly a pleasure & one I will remember for a very long time.
If I am honest, only a couple, well 3 caught my eye after the PN Choices & here they are….
A nice card awaits punters at Fairyhouse & Fit to be Tied(12.15) Makes chase debut after winning final hurdle start at Limerick, I find him interesting as he is half brother to Oscar Time & is bred to be a chaser….. Cap D’aubois(12.45) was a runner up to Death Duty on chase debut by just 3/4’s of a length & is one I like to land this race. Blow By Blow(1.50) returns after a long absence, was last seen in April 2016 winning the Punchestown Champion Bumper & has changed stables from Willie Mullins to Gordon Elliott. While back at Exeter, Yanworth(3.00) makes his second chase start at the same course he made a winning debut last month, this time going up in trip to 2m 3f.
That’s all for today folks, Thanks for your kind word regarding the 3FO interview, I hope I can keep delivering top interviews for you all to enjoy.
Please remember, if you cannot afford to bet, please just watch
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
