Yesterday our selection Khuzaam ran in the 4.45 pm at Lingfield and won easily by five lengths, at odds of 2.52 BSP at Betfair and 6/4 SP at the bookies.
He started well and soon tracked the leader. Took the lead with two furlongs left to run, then went well clear with one left to travel. Won easily in the end for us, a good run for Khuzaam.
Today's selection is Storm Nelson and runs in the 3.58 pm race at Carlisle.
The going is classed as good to soft here at Carlisle today, over their jumps course. The race is a class three Handicap Hurdle, running over three miles and one furlong. Nine runners are headed to post, and the age criteria are for four-year-olds and upwards. The youngest being a six-year-old, the eldest a thirteen-year-old.
Bali Body looks like the horse to be wary of, who won well last time out at Hereford over a similar distance and proven over today's exact distance. However, Storm Nelson looks like a powerful contender today. He's won his two most recent races very comfortably and is proven over today's course and distance.
Storm Nelson has nine tips to his name, two for Bali Body and one apiece for Galuppi and Devour.
Sandy Thomson is our trainer for this NAP of the day and has a recent run to form figure of sixty-five per cent. Over the last two weeks, he's sent out three winners from twenty races and secured an additional eight placings.
Brian Hughes is our jockey on board today and won ten of his last sixty-seven races over the previous fourteen days. He's also run thirteen of these into a placing position. He's a very busy man lately, and it's clear to see why. His skills as a jockey are amongst the best in the country. He's not ridden for Sandy lately, and as far as I can see, never ridden Storm Nelson in a competitive race, but I don't think that is much to worry about.
Storm Nelson last ran six days ago and is a proven dual course and distance winner. He won by eleven lengths in his last race, running in a class three at Carlisle over three miles and one furlong. Before that, he won by nine and a half lengths when running in a class five race ar Ayr over two miles, four and a half furlongs. Then the race before that, he took just under a four-hundred-day break. Finally, in his third race back, he finished in third position from nine runners, running in a class five race at Newcastle.
Storm Nelson is priced at 6/5 currently with BetVictor, and 2.18 at Betfair.
Finally, as always, have a great day and let's hope our selection wins for us today. James.
