Sedgefield – 2nd September: DOM’S NAP + NB | Thursday’s 2 Best Bets

Your two best bets for Sedgefield’s card on Thursday afternoon



Sedgefield Racecourse General
Sedgefield’s NAP: STOFONIC | 2:20pm Cavellos Italian Steakhouse Gin & Cocktail Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

The right side of evens, David O’Meara’s 8-year-old still looks to present plenty of value on a card with a few short-priced favourites.

Tom Scudamore makes the long trip to Sedgefield for a sole ride on Thursday

He’s only 3lb higher than when winning an incredibly competitive handicap at Market Rasen back in July and is not short of fitness after a few efforts on the flat subsequently.

This is Tom Scudamore’s only ride on the card and this looks his to lose in a fairly weak six-runner contest.

NB: PRESENTING YEATS | 3:25pm Cazoo Search Drive Smile Handicap Hurdle

The step back in trip didn’t suit the son of Yeats at Bangor-on-Dee last time and the return to a stiffer test should be right up his street.

Paddy Brennan celebrates winning the totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup on Imperial Commander.
Paddy Brennan is an intriguing booking for Presenting Yeats on Thursday afternoon

He was running off a mark in the 100s less than a year ago so appears well handicapped, still unchanged from his Welsh exploits last month.

Having the presence of Paddy Brennan in the saddle looks an interesting move and he provides plenty of value for punters in County Durham.
