Betfair Stayers Hurdle Tips
Early declarations are in and 37 are entered, a maximum of 17 will run. IMPERIAL ALCAZAR has been installed as the ante-post favourite, COOLANY, HONEST VIC and RELEGATE are also attracting early money but until we get the weights and the final field I won’t be trying to pick a winner.
Keith's tip on raceday
DOLPHIN SQUARE 14:25 Haydock 16/1 each way – Progressive since switching to handicaps, winning once and making the frame on the three other occasions. Still looks well handicapped on that evidence and can get involved again.
How did we do?
DOLPHIN SQUARE ran well until about 4 from home when the stamina sapping conditions got to him and he waekened before pulling up 2 out.
An amazing training performance from David Pipe who saddled MAIN FACT to win his 9th race in a row going up 43 lb in the handicap in the process.
