Stratford: Hooper | 6:40pm Peter Allen Thanks For The Great Memories Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick [+£8.04 profit from £1 stakes on National Hunt NAP’s]
Saturday’s sole National Hunt meeting takes place at Stratford and we’ve identified our best bet of the evening for the Warwickshire card.
Nicky Henderson’s Hooper once finished a neck-second to subsequent Swinton Hurdle winner Copperless and that form has worked out very well.
The son of Rip Van Winkle has himself landed a hat-trick of wins recently, including at the April Meeting, and won a bumper at this track back in September.
He beat Luttrel Lad that day, a rival who won twice since and finished fourth in the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree at the Grand National Festival, so Ben Davis’s mount still surely has more to give off a mark of 128.
The claimer takes a handy 7lbs off the selection's back and he's taken to secure a fourth win in a row here this weekend.
