SWOOP on BIRDS OF PREY (nap) in Kempton’s 7.25.
Paul Nicholls is more used to winning top jumps prizes but he’s done really well with his small Flat team recently.
My fancy ran a promising race on his debut for the stable over today’s track and trip when he stormed home from too far back. He should be sharper today.
Nicholls should also strike on more familiar territory with SAN BENEDETO (4.15 Warwick, nb).
He won a Grade 1 at Aintree last spring but he’s been hampered by soft ground this winter.
His Sandown second behind Altior is obviously top form and conditions have come in his favour.
BAILARICO (3.55 Yarmouth, treble) won nicely on his debut for Warren Greatrex at Chepstow. There’s plenty of juice left in him.
