Some decent racing to enjoy again Friday here in the UK and across the Irish Sea with Grade One action over the sticks plus they race on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton. I have had the two bets today.
With Altior not defending his crown in the 2.30 Grade Two Two-Mile Ladbrokes Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton it can go to Sceau Royal. Alan King's seven-year-old has seen the back end of the Champ on more than on occasion and connections must be delighted he aint here. He should be spot on after his comeback run in the Tingle Creek where he was in the mix at the Pond Fence before weakening out of contention. I have a bit of the 2-1.
Charlie Appleby had four entered for the 1m½f Ladbrokes Football Acca Bootsy Novie Stakes at Wolverhampton due off at 3.00. Tolmount is the one that runs with James Doyle in the saddle. He was also entered at Lingfield on Saturday so the fact he comes here and is the only one of four to remain in the line-up all looks positive. By Dubawi out of Fintry, a Group winning mare trained by Andre Fabre for Godolphin this colt should prove above average. You can get 7’s with Hills.
