WHITEFEATHERSFALL – Newmarket 3.05 (1pt win – 11/1 Will Hills)

WHITEFEATHERSALL struggled to dominate at Glorious Goodwood last week and could only finish a 14-1 ninth of the 13 runners. He’s impressed at Carlisle on his belated comeback the time before, landing a bit of a punt (10-1 from 16-1) when seeing off his rival rivals.

The return to a small field is likely to help and the double-digit quotes are a little insulting.


15.05 Federation Of Bloodstock Agents Handicap


BOPEDRO – Ascot 3.55 (2pts e/w – 11/2 Sky Bet, Paddy Power, Hills, Betfair, all paying four places)

It was hard to come from too far back in the 1m Porsche Handicap at Ascot on July 23rd and David O’Meara’s BOPEDRO deserves extra credit for his fourth place. Slowly away, he was held up in rear and switched closest to the stands’ side rail for a run (not the place to be), going down by three lengths. This was his first run for the yard and there should be improvement to come.

His trainer has a solid record at the second time of asking with horses he takes over from other yards, with the handicappers on turf winning 47 of their 271 starts (17.3% strike-rate) for a tiny profit of £3.61. Had we only backed those who finished in the top four on their stable debut and were running again within four weeks we’d have landed 33 of our 114 bets (29%) and made a profit of £30.11.

We’ve got lucky with the jockey – Jamie Spencer on a hold-up horse at Ascot – and there’s plenty of pace among his rivals, including stablemate Shelir who could help to tee it up for him.


15.55 Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Mile (Handicap)
Result
8th 6/1

ADAAY IN ASIA – Ascot 5.05 (1pt e/w – 11/1 Hills, four places)

ADAAY IN ASIA has a touch of the ‘Mr Wagyus’ and tends to peak in high summer, recording form figures of 111311 (5-6) when racing over 6f from June to August.

He won despite racing freely at Chepstow on his penultimate start and also failed to settle when overcoming trouble in running to score at 22-1 at Goodwood last week. He seems to have been underestimated in the market again and Neil Callan is up.


17.05 Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Sprint (Handicap)
Result
1st 10/1


BLOWING WIND – Ayr 8.15 (2pts win – 11/1 bet365, 10-1 elsewhere)

BLOWING WIND was beaten by 21 lengths into eighth place when a 17-2 shot at Pontefract last time but, bonkers as it may seem, that was a good effort in the circumstances. Those drawn high who raced towards the stands’ side rail enjoyed a huge edge, with the first five home coming from stalls 10, 8, 7, 11 and 9.

Sixth place Round The Island (beaten more than 15 lengths from stall 6) won at 11-1 next time, seventh place True Mason (stall 2, beaten by just over 20 lengths) landed a gamble at Doncaster on his next start and tenth home Dream Together, 38 lengths behind the winner from stall 1, was beaten by half a length when second at Haydock on his next outing. Blowing Wind never had a prayer after racing down the middle from stall 2 and was only a neck behind True Mason. The step back up to 7f will suit.
