This weekend’s focus kickstarts with Saturday’s cards at Ascot and Warwick.
Our profit across the last two days from £45 (£1 per bet) in stakes has been £51.60.
Dreamloper (1:55pm) [Reece’s Pick] & Sunset Breeze (3:40pm) [Dom’s Pick]
Ed Walker’s Dreamloper won over course-and-distance off a 6lbs higher mark in September and had a nice pipe opener at Haydock last month.
She’s under the stewardship of Tom Marquand on Saturday, wearing a hood for the first time, and is taken to get back to winning ways.
Sunset Breeze, on the other hand, ran a cracker here in a handicap nine months ago, getting beat a neck by a horse who won a Newmarket contest off a mark of 91 this year.
The selection could be well handicapped on that merit and the form from his Doncaster effort is working out fairly well too.
Erne River (5:12pm) [Reece’s Pick] & Garry Clermont (7:20pm) [Dom’s Pick]
The opening contest can go to Nick Kent’s Erne River who won with ease at Doncaster last time out and looks the one to beat here.
A former pointer, he once finished ahead of Listed winner Minella Drama in a start between the flags and could have more to offer under rules.
Later in the fixture, a chance is taken on Jonjo O’Neill’s Garry Clermont who didn’t fire over fences but returned to timber with a decent effort at Newbury last time.
His form as a novice with Dan Skelton’s Langer Dan, who won the Imperial Cup and finished second behind a Grade 1 winner in the Martin Pipe, reads like a good form line and experience could count for plenty in this field.
