THE BIG BITEW/O Funambule Sivola & Before Midnight (1.15 Doncaster, 2pt win, 7/2)

THE BIG BITE likes it here at Doncaster, having scored once and finished second off today’s handicap mark in this contest last year behind a well-handicapped rival. Today, he faces Funambule Sivola, but every man and his dog knows that this is a 160’s horse running off 152, but I am convinced there is a plan for him going forward.

Venetia Williams won this race with Ibelo last year before going onto the Grand Annual, but I hope they learned their lesson and will want to finish a close-up second in this race, but I wouldn’t want to lay him either.

For that reason, I am looking at the without market and 7/2 about The Big Bite when taking Funambule Sivola and Before Midnight out of the race looks a very good price. The drop back to 2m and the return to a sound surface are both in his favour along with this Doncaster track. He must go close.

FOR LANGY – (2.00 Huntingdon, 1pt win, 20/1)

FOR LANGY shaped with a good deal of promise at Sandown on his return from 670 days off the track, and he is entitled to improve a good bit from that run now dropped in class.

On his French form, he could prove well-handicapped, and his Taunton run from Jan 20′ also confirms the fact. He dropped out when looking threatening at Sandown and shaped as though he was desperately in need of the run, and this race doesn’t have much strength in depth. He looks worth chancing with a win only bet at double-figure odds now in calmer waters.

MILL GREEN – (3.10 Huntingdon, 1pt each-way, 10/1)

MILL GREEN is a talented horse on his day, and its interesting connections start out here for the season in this Pertemps Qualifier. This is a good each-way betting race with the 12 runners, and although he has an absence to overcome, he does have a fair record fresh, and Nicky Henderson doesn’t waste too many bullets at this venue.

He was crying out for a step up to 3m when over hurdles highlighted by his staying on seventh in the Martin Pipe and the previous year sixth in the same contest off 4lbs higher than his current mark.

He has failed to take to fences, and given his age, it’s likely he will be fit and ready to go in at the first time of asking here with no probably future plans. The ground is in his favour, and he looks a favourable price.
