    Good boy Bobby looks a really good bet to me here

    Most of his novice season form suggests to me he’s got a good few lbs in hand off 144

    He finished a head 2nd to brewinupastorm (who also looks a knocking bet in the handicap hurdle at taunton) who is rated 148

    He finished 2 lengths 2nd to mister fisher who he was giving 5lbs too, he is now rated 162

    Then this season he finished a well beaten second behind master tommytucker but 18 lengths clear of dashel dasher who is in this race too and has to give good boy bobby 8lb

    The change to more patient tactics didnt work in the caspian caviar so hopefully he will be ridden prominently tomorrow

    Wouldnt surprise me at all if he goes off shorter than the 5/1 currently available

    Took a chance on Acting Lass at 16/1. Pulled up on seasonal debut but ran better than the result suggests. Has had wind surgery since and won this race in 2018.

    Dashel Drasher a notebook horse of mine this year, and very happy with how he done it last time. I’ve every confidence he’ll the best horse in the race long term, but this is much tougher. His mark looks high enough right now, but I just like him a lot, and he should be there. Very happy with 7’s, but an outside chance of beating that, so I’m holding on.

    Last years winner Domaine De L’Isle is dangerous off this mark, but did look to sulk last time. Good Boy Bobby is another obvious danger.

    If all the meetings go ahead tomorrow, it’ll be too busy a day to have another in this, but if any meetings fall by the wayside, I’d be very happy to have Jerrysback too. Hopefully he’s back as good as ever.

    Dashel Drasher for me too. I can definitely see the case for Good Boy Bobby.

    I’ve backed Windsor Avenue a few times in the past and he’s become something of a cliff horse for me so with me having decided not to today, watch out for a big run there. :yes:

    WD everyone on DD, bet you enjoyed that Bobby, a proper bold front running performance round a tough course, even somebody on the second would have admired that!
