Two of our BDH squad take to the field on Saturday so no time for any wiffle-waffle, lets get stuck into my thoughts on them both…
BDH Runner: DUNGANNON – 205 Sandown
Fist things first we have him back on the track within that all important 28 day window; 17 days since his last start will do just dandy.
Back down at 5 furlongs is also a good move in my opinion; that will do just fine for me as well.
Ground should be OK and track configuration should also be within the ballpark.
Draw, however, I have a wee question mark. I don’t think middle is ideal in large fields at Sandown over the 5f. To be honest I think straight track blitzes at Sandown are tricky, they don’t always play out how I expect them to. However, lets take it that this one will play out like normal I have the pace coming from the high stalls (boxes 12 & 13) and that should, hopefully, play to the hands of our boy DUNGANNON.
At the projected 10-1 odds I’ll have a bit of him each-way. He is well handicapped and is returning within the correct time-frame; it’s time for Dunny to do the business for us!
BDH Runner: THUNDERBALL- 255 Chester
In my own words…
“Essentially we are looking for 6 furlongs and soft” – Here we have 7 and 1/2 furlongs and Good!
“He is yet to prove he is up to winning a really valuable contest (20k+) but if he gets his conditions it would not be hard to see him running well in such a race” – This is worth 28k to the winner and he doesn’t look to have conditions!
“4 of his 5 turf wins have come on a straight track and although that condition isn’t a necessity it probably is preferable” – This is round the tight Left-Handed Chester track!
His stall draw would be average as well.
Yeah I think I will leave him here to be honest!!
If he somehow wins this you will probably hear my yells of “How the F**K did he win that” from wherever you are in the universe!!
Best of luck if you are getting involved.
FREE BDH Handicap Sleepers Guide
Hopefully you all managed to download the free guide I sent out yesterday. If you haven’t yet then find yesterday’s email that I sent out and grab the guide now, it’s well worth your time (if I don’t say so myself).
As you will have noticed there were 2 qualifiers from the guide running on Friday but neither of them were running under preferred conditions (so no bet). Both soundly beaten as well so an even bigger and better price on offer (hopefully!) when they do meet their ideal conditions next time.
If you want to grab this in-depth and FREE guide (all 21 pages of it!!) then head to the following page and pop your details into the sign-up form…
*The FREE Guide is on the FREE BDH Guides page not the Free NTF Guides page. Both links will be sent to you in the same email.
Cheers – Ben (BDH)
