Sunday sees three cards at Punchestown, Exeter and Southwell. We have gone over each to dig out one horse at each meeting who loves to run at the track where they race on Sunday. The three combined make up a 566-1 acca, best priced with bet365 at the time of writing.
The banks races have had their fair share of specialists down the years. The latest for Enda Bolger looks to be Shady Operator who is already 2/2 over these fences to add to a record of 221 over the main track at Punchestown. It’s fair to say that this track very much brings out the best in this nine-year-old and another win very much looks on the cards here.
The improvement in the programme for mares in recent years has allowed classier mares the chance to stay in training. Momella might not be right at the top of the tree but she is a perfect 2/2 when she has run at Exeter in the past. That local knowledge (including a win in this race last year) is going to be a plus for her with her main rivals yet to run at this track.
Despite being a big price, Stone Solider holds better claims than that suggests. Three wins and a second in five runs at this track, his most recent second here was right up there with his best form. The two at the head of the betting have a touch to prove with regards to Tapeta, turf and Polytrack producing their respective best form so far. Perhaps then, at his favourite course, the Archie Watson-trained horse can spring a minor surprise.
