Today’s best bets, by Greg Wood
The seemingly inexorable drop of Ladbrokes, once the undisputed market frontrunner in Uk betting, continues today using publication associated with firm’s makes up about 2015. The bottom line is it made £5.1m a year ago, down by £35.9m in 2014, a dramatic decrease which can be becoming blamed in the effect of “increased tax and regulation”. As sergeant-major Williams always state back the 70s: Oh dear. Just what a pity. Never ever mind.
Anybody hoping to kick all of them as they tend to be down might start thinking about supporting Wolowitz (4.35) at Wolverhampton. David Barron’s gelding switches from Fibresand to Tapeta, having cleared right-away from his field at Southwell final periods, but had currently shown vow in 2 runs on turf at Newcastle and York so is typically not a Southwell-or-nothing kind. His time was impressive on his latest start, also, and he will take some stopping on his handicap debut.
The two-mile handicap hurdle at Taunton is considered the most competitive competition from the leaps cards and Cobra De Mai (4.10) appears the wager to carry on his progress. The sole four-year-old on the go, Dan Skelton’s runner has just five begins behind him in Britain and enhanced to win their first challenge event at third effort final time out. Qualando, that has been disappointing since winning last year’s Fred Winter at Cheltenham, is his best adversary given that the Paul Nicholls stable is finding its long ago into type.
The Brock Again (3.05) has actually solid statements for a passing fancy card, while, up at Wetherby, Big Jim (3.50) and Zephyros Bleu (4.25) should prevail on time with a number of very obvious favourites.
