Flyer to hit the heights
10:48am Saturday 29th November 2008 in Tip of the day
ALTHOUGH the nap, Kladester was just anchored by his penalty, we had another successful day yesterday with winners in Amazing King (4/1) and Spouk (7/4), while our each-way selection, Sarde finished 2nd at 16/1. Today’s big race is the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury and while Denman carried 11st 12lb to victory last year, it usually pays to look at horses carrying much less weight in this 3m 2f slog. Although there are some decent chasers at the head of the weights and some promising youngsters just below them, I’m going to side with Island Flyer who looks to have been let in lightly with just 10st to carry.
Towcester: 1.25 Great Endeavour
Newbury: 2.40 Island Flyer (nap) 3.15 Randwick Roar
Kempton: 2.50 Castano (e.w.) 4.30 Scarab
Wolverhampton: 9.20 Megalo Mainiac
