HAWAI GAME – (12.15 Punchestown, 1pt win, 7/2)

I want to take on today’s favourite simply because of the level of opposition that Dysart Dynamo has beaten. He has recorded fair times but this is a bit deeper for him and his price is mighty short.

In turn that offers a little value about stablemate HAWAI GAME who saw his excellent performance at Naas given a huge boost by the runner-up next time out in good style. His jumping was sloppy and he was notably green on that occasion so the performance deserves an upgrade. He clearly has a sizeable engine and looks a horse of considerable potential.

WORD HAS IT – (2.40 Kelso, 1pt win – 5/2 bet365)

Chasing has been put on hold for WORD HAS IT by the looks of things, after a first flight fall at Haydock, and he reverts back to hurdles today, and there is an air of unfinished business about him in the sphere.

He was highly progressive over hurdles and had some substantial pieces of form, such as his three lengths second to Pay The Piper at Sedgefield and his five-length win over the 130 rated Wicked West at this venue. His mark of 130, given his lightly raced profile, is very workable, and he can continue his progression.

There is plenty in favour of Elvis Mail, who drops back in trip and returns to Kelso and caught the eye at Aintree last time, so must be feared, along with Albert’s Back, who is more than capable off this handicap mark.

DON’T NEED TO KNOW – (3.40 Kelso, 1pt win – 12/1 betfair)

DON’T NEED TO KNOW steps back up to 3m today for the first time since running third at Newcastle back in November 2020, and he was a good second behind an improver here at Kelso before that run on his only other start over 3m.

He shaped as though a return to form is imminent on his last two starts, but he doesn’t have the pace to challenge over 2m and 2 1/2 miles, so this trip move looks like a bright idea. He returns to this trip off a much-reduced handicap mark (14lbs lower than his last attempt), and this could be the chance to break his Maiden.
