THE VALUE BETTING COLUMN EVERY SATURDAY




WOLVERHAMPTON, SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 2003



2:10PM £35,000 LITTLEWOODS BET DIRECT LINCOLN TRIAL STAKES (HANDICAP) (CLASS B) (4YO+,0-105) 1m 110yards

GOING: STANDARD - FIBRESAND

BP= best odds from Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral and the Tote.


1) (12) 1-44 Eastern Breeze Paul D’Arcy 5-10-00 John Egan
Generally has better form over further (around 10f) but has been running well this winter. Yet to race on this surface but goes well on the Polytrack at Lingfield. Should run his race, but has it all to do with top weight.

BP = 11/1 Tote

2) (10) 1180 Flying Treaty Anne Stokell 6-9-12 Dominic Fox(7)
Won twice at Southwell earlier this year but disappointing on latest two starts and is probably now in the grip of the handicapper. Forget.

BP = 25/1 Ladbrokes, Tote, William Hill

3) (8) 2032 Oscar Pepper David Barron 6-9-12 Jimmy Fortune
Invariably runs well in this sort of race although overall win record is not great. Should be thereabouts again, but is always going to be vulnerable to a less exposed type. No value.

BP = 5/1 Ladbrokes, Tote, William Hill, Coral

4) (2) 0-21 Del Mar Sunset William Haggas 4-9-11 Darryll Holland
One of the least exposed members of the field. Finished last season well and has really come into his own on his two starts this season, defeating Oscar Pepper over the course and distance last time. There could well be more improvement to come but the value is not great.

BP = 5/1 Coral

5) (4) 1514 Lygeton Lad Gay Kelleway 5-9-10t Lee Enstone(3)
Has been running consistently well on the Polytrack at Lingfield over the winter and always runs his race. Has also won on this surface in the past and this genuine horse looks sure to run well again but has a better record at Lingfield.

BP = 14/1 Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral

6) (7) -034 Invader Clive Brittain 7-9-10 Jimmy Quinn
Something of a law unto himself, but no doubting his ability when he’s in the mood. Won this contest in 2001 and was also second in the Royal Hunt Cup last year. Could go close if in the mood but others appeal more.

BP = 9/1 Ladbrokes, Tote, William Hill

7) (3) 9-34 Diamond Max David Evans 5-9-09v Sean Kelly
Second in this race last year but has generally not been in great form since. However, he has been quite highly tried on occasions and shaped with some promise on his two runs this year but has something to prove.

BP = 11/1 Tote

8) (11) 1-20 Te Quiero Gay Kelleway 5-9-08t Neil Callan
Was in good form last season in low-grade company and looked as if he should handle a step up in class. Finished lame at Lingfield last time, but if back on song he would an interesting proposition and is worth taking a chance with at this price. His second the time before has worked out well.

BP = 14/1 Ladbrokes, Tote

9) (9) 314- Lakota Brave Nick Littmoden 9-9-08 Tom McLaughlin
Getting on in years but still capable on his day. Generally better on the Polytrack at Lingfield, though he has won here, and it is doubtful whether he is up to winning this class of race in any case.

BP = 14/1 Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral

10) (13)334- Anna Walhaan Mick Channon 4-9-08v Steve Drowne
Had very decent form as a juvenile and was something of a “twilight” horse last year in that he could not win handicaps but was not Listed class either. Has been gelded and looks fairly treated on all-weather debut. Interesting.

BP = 16/1 Ladbrokes, Tote, Coral

11) (1) 5-13 Prince Tulum Nick Littmoden 4-9-07 Richard Hughes
Has a great record over the course and distance, winning three out of his last four runs here. Still young enough to be improving and warrants respect.

BP = 7/1 William Hill, Coral

12) (6) 51-1 Creskeld Bryan Smart 4-9-06 Paul Scallan(3)
Has improved since being switched to the all-weather, winning last two starts at Southwell and here over the course and distance. There could be improvement to come and is one to consider.

BP = 5/1 Ladbrokes, Tote, William Hill, Coral

13) (5) 7076 Air Mail Norma Macauley 6-9-04 George Baker
Decent performer on this surface on his day, but has generally been out of sorts lately and has not won in almost a year.

BP = 50/1 William Hill

SUMMARY
It is possible to make a case for a few of these. The value is with Te Quiero who had hopefully a hiccup last time out and is worth another chance each way.


GOOD LUCK
