Top tipster Andrew Mount starts the new week with four bets in Britain and Ireland
FALCO BLITZ (1.45 Southwell, 2pts win 6/4)
It was an odd move to run FALCO BLITZ right-handed again at Kempton on Boxing Day, as he had jumped markedly out to his left when only fifth at Ascot on his previous start. He did so again, doing well to creep into contention under a hold-up ride before finishing just over seven lengths back in second place. He looks set to improve now racing left-handed for the first time since switched to chasing.
COOLE ARCADE (3.30 Fairyhouse, 1pt each-way 11/2)
COOLE ARCADE is a seven-race maiden but has only had the two runs in handicap hurdles and he was a big eyecatcher at Tramore on New Year’s Day. It usually pays to race wide in hurdle races on deep ground at that venue but, with the rail moved out, that was not the case. Coole Arcade gave up the outside to no-one in the 2m handicap hurdle and couldn't quite get in a blow from off the pace, finishing just over one length back in second place. He was placed at 40-1 in his only other handicap outing and can be supported each-way.
PENNY POET (4.20 Southwell, 1pt win 11/2)
PENNY POET was well beaten at Plumpton on December’s comeback but shaped much better at the same venue next time, finishing a three-length runner-up at 22-1 despite racing on the inside of the track where the ground was much slower. That form has received a few boosts and she’s worth a small interest in today’s modest contest.
KOOLA BUALA (6.40 Wolverhampton, 1pt win 7/2)
KOOLA BUALA was added to the tracker after her fourth place in a Gowran Park maiden for Fozzy Stack in October. She did really to finish within three lengths of the winner that day, as she plotted a wide course on a day the inside was strongly favoured. Sold for 16,000gns shortly afterwards, she’s worth chancing on her debut for George Scott.
