I was checking all the course stats this morning to try and find a good betting angle. Then I discovered Oliver Grenal’s course record in 2021, which is impressive to say the least.
Grenal has sent 10 riders to the track this year and four of them have won. That’s a very healthy 40 percent return and sent two runners to the track on Thursday. Both have very strong prospects and make a delicious double taste.
Dino Velvet benefited from the race that broke down at Uttoxeter nine days ago and looks like he deserves to participate. The one who could defeat him is Greenall coach El Borracho, the double winner at hurdles. He won the course and distance in June and the runner-up shook shape, winning nine lengths the next. Huge player and only top 4 pounds now.
Hats Off To Larry traveled hard in the race when he finished third at Uttoxeter last month and is the consistency model. Fleeing the same sign, he should be of serious interest even if this was a tougher handicap and a step in the class. A seven-year-old will carry bottom weight and it can make all the difference if he comes in there swinging from the bridle again.
