Jumps Selections Saturday

Nicholls / Olly Murphy in good form and should be worth following today.

I have gone over their comments (positive ones) and have looked at the pedigrees of all the runners and filtered accordingly.

I’m not backing blind as I have removed a few where there have been negatives. Doesn’t mean they can’t win though!

Hopefully I’m on the right ones …

Ascot:

13:15 – Eglantine Du Seuil

‘She ran a cracker on her latest start for us six weeks ago in a competitive mares’ handicap hurdle at Cheltenham where she came from off the pace to be second to The White Mouse. This is a new trip for her and though I can’t be sure she stays three miles she was keeping on well at the finish at Cheltenham. I’m hopeful Eglantine Du Seuil can run tidily getting 6 lbs from two smart mares Magic of Light and Roksana.’

13:50 – Danny Kirwan

‘He has had one or two issue that have interrupted his career but is now in as good a place as we’ve had him for a long time and it was great to see him show what he can do with a fluent victory over this trip at Ascot two months ago. Next time at Cheltenham he didn’t stay three miles. Danny has been working with Politologue and will be much happier back at this trip on testing ground that he relishes. I am expecting a big run from him in a competitive race.’

14:25 – Favorito Buck’s

‘He ran his best race for a while last time in first time blinkers at Ascot where he led all the way until he was collared in the last 100 yards. The handicapper has played fair by leaving him on the same mark and should be in the mix again though he wouldn’t want to the ground be too deep.’

15:35 – Politologue

‘He is bouncing ahead of this Grade 1 Chase which comes at an ideal time ahead of his bid to retain his title in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. Politologue has been in seriously good shape since his brilliant success in the Tingle Creek at Sandown and has thrived since we changed his training routine just over a year ago. I’d say he is as well as I’ve ever had him.’

Taunton

14:45 – Brewin’upastorm

‘Brewin’upastorm reverts back to hurdles after some disappointing runs in good company over fences. Hopefully, he will gain a bit of confidence back over timber and the trip should suit. He’s won around the track before and hopefully the ground won’t be too testing. He’s got to give a lot of weight away but he is the class horse in the field.’

15:25 – Follow That

‘Follow That ran creditably in a couple of bumpers but hasn’t fired over hurdles so far. He has his first run in a handicap and although he lacks the experience, he’ll handle the soft ground well and should run respectable.’

6 points staked!

Not for the faint hearted!

I have the firepower (Bank) to  take the ups and downs. Since the thread is only 2 weeks old (-2.1 points) I suggest doing your own research or just backing those that are in the top 3 of the market.

Summary:

13:15 – Eglantine Du Seuil, 1pt win (6.0)
13:50 – Danny Kirwan, 1pt win (9.8)
14:25 – Favorito Buck’s, 1pt win (13.5)
14:45 – Brewin’upastorm 1pt win (5.3)
15:25 – Follow That, 1pt win (8.6)
15:35 – Politologue, 1pt win (2.6)

Top 3 in market:

14:45 – Brewin’upastorm 1pt win (5.3)
15:25 – Follow That, 1pt win (8.6)
15:35 – Politologue, 1pt win (2.6)
