Nigel Twiston-Davies – My Runners 5th March 2017

Nigel Twiston-Davies Weekly Column

No runners Saturday and only a few Sunday as we all await Cheltenham with the anticipation building to a crescendo….

Nigel’s Charity Bet

Wood Yer 4.00pm Huntingdon – Best Odds Guaranteed

A £50 win bet will be placed with any returns being donated to the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Sunday runners:

Unblinking 2.00pm Huntingdon

“Hasn’t really shown a lot in two outings over hurdles for me though he did pick up some money for a third at Warwick even if he was beaten over seventeen lengths at the line. I am hoping I can find a small race for him somewhere but this looks a little tougher than I hoped and he may struggle a little.”

Double Court 2.30pm Huntingdon

“Everything needs to fall right for him here if he is to win his second race on his twenty-first start and a place seems a far more likely outcome. He gets on well enough with Jamie (Bargary) but needs to find a bit more to get involved today. ”

Kilronan High 3.30pm Huntingdon

“She unseated last time out behind Desert Queen at Leicester in a similar standard and she deserves another chance based on her win at Hereford in late October. This is obviously a lot tougher than that Class Three event but the race has cut up and I am hoping we may pick up a bit of place prize money at least here and she could be the one for the forecast. ”

Wood Yer 4.00pm Huntingdon

“A bit of an old fashioned slogger this one and the more it turns out like that the better his chances become. The three and three quarter miles of the Cambridgeshire National is a help as is any further rain, and off a mark of 114 looks workable and I’m hoping for a big run. ”

Swinging Concerto 5.30pm Huntingdon

“Unraced and likely to improve considerably for the experience. He is bred to win races but is a bit backward at present and although they can come alive on the racecourse and surprise us all, I cant suggest him as a bet just yet but watch this space.”
