Worcester: YOUR BAND | 4:20pm Arundel Boy’s Favourites: Flynn, Arsenal, Esco Handicap Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
Worcester’s fixture on Wednesday afternoon will be held in honour of the late Liam Treadwell, in what will mark exactly a year since his passing.
Our best bet of the day is Alistair Ralph’s Your Band, whose latest success arrived under Mr. Treadwell back in September 2019.
He endured a year off the track in the aftermath but has shed the cobwebs in recent outings and readily improved on his latest start at Aintree when finishing a neck-second, 11-lengths clear of the rest of the field.
Now 4lbs higher, he’s still on the same mark that he last enjoyed success off so doesn’t look handicapped out of things and top claimer Ben Jones lessens the rise.
The two-and-a-half mile trip looks his optimal distance and he’s taken to secure a first win in just shy of two years, in what would be a fitting success on the card for connections.
