Bet 1 – First £10 Bet

A tasty double to start today’s multiple tip off, as both BALLYWOOD and WENYERREADYFREDDIE (NAP) look very hard to oppose.

Alan King was always sure Ballywood had plenty of ability when he made the switch from France last season. Although he didn’t show it over hurdles, King’s four-year-old got off the mark as a chaser at the first time of asking when outbattling the talented Capeland at Taunton. The form of that race has been boosted since and Ballywood looks to be up against little in the way of competition here.

Wenyerreadyfreddie has looked a classy novice chaser in the making this year, finishing second twice before claiming two impressive victories at Ascot. On the back of a lengthy victory in handicap company, Nicky Henderson’s charge was made to work harder than expected when seeing off Kildisart at the end of November. 

Never-the-less, the favourite got the job done and Kildisart has come out and won well since. The word “soft” featuring in the going description may not be ideal, but he brings by far and away the best form into this handicap and 11-8 is by no means an unmanageable burden.

Bet 2 – £10 Free Bet 1

In a wide-open race like this, going with UNBLINKING at the bottom of the weights wouldn’t be the worst way to go. 

Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge is now be running off a career-high mark, having finished second in a big handicap at Cheltenham before comfortably winning at Warwick. Infact, the margin of Unblinking’s victory may have been much wider had he not clattered the second-last, but the way he and Jordan Nailor recovered and pulled clear after the final flight was impressive.

Twiston-Davies’ stable haven’t been in the best of form, but Unblinking will be suited by underfoot conditions and looks in good enough form to challenge with just 9-7 on his back.

Wenyerreadyfreddie, seen here winning at Ascot, features on our opening double.

Bet 3 - £10 Free Bet

It was a big blow for Charlie Longsdon to lose BALLYDINE for 18 months, especially after ending his novice hurdling season with two good performances in high-profile races. On his return from injury last December, Ballydine ran a fine race to finish a half-length second at Haydock, a result he couldn’t better second-time out at Leicester.

A step up to three miles worked wonders at Sandown and February, where Ballydine battled bravely to beat Holly Bush Henry in a Class Two. Longsdon then handed his charge a tough reappearance mission in the Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle, and it was no surprise to see Ballydine finish down the field in fifth.

That was clearly a very good renewal up at Newcastle and Ballydine finished the race strong to cross the line just ten lengths behind Lake View Lad. Jonathan Burke’s mount is entitled to come on from that run and should be in the mix dropping down considerably in class.

Bet 4 – £10 Free Bet

A fairly weak renewal of this handicap hurdle, with several of the principles dropping back to hurdles after finishing chasing a little too difficult. Enniscoffey Oscar won the River Don over course-and-distance last season and could relish the return to Doncaster, but I’m finding it hard to oppose COMMODORE BARRY at the top of the betting.

Kim Bailey’s five-year-old made his first start over hurdles back in May and has won three times since finishing third on debut. David Bass was in the saddle as Commodore Barry was defeated on his handicap debut at Worcester in October, but the pair made up for that loss in fine style at Southwell earlier this month, staying on comfortably to justify a very short price.

Three miles looks to be Commodore Barry’s best distance and he’s sure to enjoy the good ground at Doncaster. Kim Bailey’s charge may have lost on his handicap debut, but the experience he gathered should stand him in excellent stead and he looks to have more progression left in the tank.
