Aachen 3.00 Towcester
SP forecast 4-9
Expensive buy from France and impressed in winning both hurdles starts in Britain on testing ground. However, Taunton and Market Rasen are poles apart from Towcester's configurations and the final hill will make this more like a 2m4f race.
Interestingly, his main form rivals have both won here on bad ground.
Conclusion Aachen is the clear form pick, but Towcester is a law unto itself when the ground is heavy and others may be better equipped to cope. Lay.
Harty Boy 4.25 Lingfield
SP forecast 6-4
Level of form in two maidens gives him very strong claims; is respected as an unexposed runner from a good stable, but I've not been convinced by his attitude in a finish and reckon he might be keeping something back.
Conclusion Hasn't shown enough stomach for my liking. Lay.
