Wednesday Racing: Betts looks to make Simply perfect start over fences



Bet365 Grand National

Wednesday’s cards from Chepstow, Kempton, Musselburgh, Nottingham, Wolverhampton and Dundalk- I’ve tried to pick out an interesting runner or two from each card.

The quality of racing takes a dip from the last couple of days, but there’s a still a couple of intriguing angles to note.

Sun Bear, a regally bred daughter of Irish Oaks winner Great Heavens, makes her career debut in the 12:20 at Nottingham. She’s got Godolphin’s Beauty Stone, sixth in a good Newmarket maiden last time, as her main market rival.

In the first at Musselburgh, Ashington, who got to a rating as high as 88 on the flat, looks to make it two-from-three over hurdles following a bloodless victory at Stratford last time out.

An interesting runner in the 3:10 at Chepstow is Simply The Betts, who was considered good enough to run in the Supreme as a novice hurdler in 2018 before flopping twice in handicaps early last season.

He’s been off for almost 12 months, and makes his chasing debut from a mark of 125, which looks lenient if he is able to resume his progress.

Over on the all-weather, there’s a tidy Class 2 sprint handicap, where Buridan would be my pick. He beat the reopposing Warsaw Road at Newcastle last week and a 4lb rise doesn’t look unfair- at the prices, he’s taken to beat market leader and recent C&D runner up Show Stealer.

On the same surface at Dundalk, potentially the best runner on their card is So Suave in the 3:20.

Second of 21 in a Navan maiden on debut, this race looks weaker and could be his for the taking, whilst the lightly raced Rocket Action may be too strong for his rivals in Wolverhampton’s Class 3 event- Puds and Orvar are respected at this level but Robert Cowell’s gelding looks to have the most room for improvement.
