The Wolf’s Jumps Guide: Sunday

Race 1 – Maiden Hurdle: No.1 All Well
Looked the winner on his jumping debut before running inside the marker pegs and getting disqualified. Ran a close-up second on the flat last time out. Will be very hard to catch. Watch betting as stable is known for having a bet.

Race 2 – Maiden Hurdle: No.7 Huffandpuff
The 5yo grey made his jumps debut at Casteron in a strong hurdle and ran a respectable 3.75L fourth behind Danzadoozie and Slowpoke Rodriguez. Only had 11 starts so lots of upside. Should run a race. Best efforts have been on heavy going too.

Race 3 – Maiden Hurdle: No.2 Glorious Sinndar
This looks a race in two between Shearer and Glorious Sinndar. Siding with the latter who was devastating on debut at Pakenham winning by 9L. Won the LR Ramsden in May. Should be very hard to beat. Loves the wet going to boot.

Race 4 – JJ Houlahan Hurdle: No.1 Zanteco
Zanteco has been highly impressive at his last two with a big win in the Dreschler before dominating the Grand National. Track conditions suit here and gets in fairly well under the weight conditions. Racing too well.

Race 5 – Steeplechase: No.3 Danzadoozie
The 6yo son of Barely A Moment was brilliant on his return from a short break with a strong win over Slowpoke Rodriguez. Handles the wet going and there are a lot of pretty ordinary jumpers here. Hurdle winners in chases are typically good bets.

Race 6 – Grand National Steeplechase: No.8 Slowpoke Rodriguez
The great Slowpoke Rodriguez was mammoth last start when placing in the Grand National Hurdle when he was tailed out last by a long way before charging home for third. Needs to be ridden cold so love the addition of John Allen. He is a start in the making who can finally breakthrough for his first big win.

Best: Glorious Sinndar
Slowpoke Rodriguez
