Loader’s Lucky 15 – Best bets across three of Sunday’s cards
Sunday’s Lucky 15. Chris Loader rolls his four best bets at Carlisle, Limerick and Market Rasen into this Lucky 15 on Sunday 15th March.
Back to normal service this Sunday with just your standard win only Lucky 15 with Racing Tips. My four selections come from all the meetings at Carlisle, Limerick and Market Rasen. Can we finish the weekend of a high?
Sunday’s Lucky 15
3.35 Carlisle – Takingrisks
Age appears no barrier with Taking Risks has he’s gone on to big some very big staying chases including the 2019 Scottish National at Ayr. This season he has been able to maintain his form winning a valuable race at Newcastle which saw him beat subsequent winners Top Ville Ben and Captain Chaos. It seems that Nicky Richards could be targeting another Scottish National bid and the eleven-year-old won this race on bottomless ground beating the likes of Jepeck who lines up again this year. I feel his stamina edge will come out again this year.
3.45 Limerick – Salsaretta
Salsaretta looks to be my banker on Sunday as she remains undefeated over fences so far for Willie Mullins. Her latest performance saw her put in a commanding effort at Thurles making all from the front. That has been her normal running style and nothing has been able to live with her. The seven-year-old is probably being targeted to run at spring festivals at Fairyhouse and Punchestown. I don’t see many rivals that she pose a threat and I think she can extend her unbeaten run.
4.30 Market Rasen – High Noon
High Noon has done well since transferring yards to Micky Hammond. Two starts ago the son of Westerner was a good winner at Musselburgh on good ground under Emma Smith-Chaston who’s caught a few eyes this season for her 7lb claim. However his latest performance was definitely a step too far running over three miles which stretched his stamina. Dropping back to two and half miles looks the correct idea and there still appears to be scope of his rating of 103.
4.50 Limerick – Ask And Answer
Ask And Answer has been in good form for Sean Aherne this winter and he looks to have a good chance here. The son of Ask has not finished out of the frame of his last three starts which included a victory at Navan. This race doesn’t look too strong on paper and Eoin Walsh is booked to claim 7lbs. Walsh won the Leinster National for us on Cap York last weekend and he looks to have a bright future. Also the testing conditions should be fine as his recent runs have been on soft or heavy ground. Surely the seven-year-old has to go very close at Limerick.
