Sunday’s Daily Double – Best bets at Naas and Warwick

Chris Loader rolls his two best bets today into this Daily Double covering races at Naas and Warwick on Sunday 8th March.

It was great to be back the amongst the winners as yesterday’s Racing Tips Daily Double came in after our recent dry spell. Today our selections are bigger prices and I would recommend an Each Way bet here as I expect both of them to go close.

The selections come from Nass and Warwick. Can we build on our Saturday success? Best odds available here with Ladbrokes.

Sunday’s Daily Double

3.15 Naas – Cap York

Some of you might think I am brave going for a selection in the Leinster National but I just had to put this one up. Cap York doesn’t look a convincing type for Noel Meade in today’s contest and has he’s struggled to get into his most recent races. His last effort came in a Beginners Chase at Navan but he’s was badly hampered at a crucial stage which paid dividends to his chances. The same excuses can be applied where he showed more promise with his eight-placed finish in the Paddy Power Chase at Christmas. Despite his recent failings the handicapper has only dropped him 1lb to a mark of 133 which looks workable. Furthermore Eoin Walsh is booked today claiming an extra 7lbs which will further aid his cause. The son of Ballingary was a promising hurdler last season and won off a mark of 132, so he should fare well at the weights here. If he can get out of the traffic and travel strongly into the race I can see him being a major player.

3.35 Warwick – Alminar

Alminar was on my shortlist for the Eider Chase in February but unfortunately was not able to run due to the abandonment of the meeting at Newcastle. Before that Alminar had been a good winner at Chepstow going away strongly from his rivals at the line. Stepping up in trip even further will suit because he looks a true stayer and Nigel Hawke has spoken highly of him in the media. Hawke believes that will might be able to contest in races such as the Welsh National later in his career. Moreover Kieran Buckley is keeping the ride here and that’s a positive move in my opinion as he won on the seven-year-old last time. I believe Alminar has the scope today to outstay his rivals and grind out a game win.
