THIS time of the season is always pretty quiet with Cheltenham just around the corner, but there’s still some intriguing fare on Sunday.
Sedgefield has managed to get past the boycotters, but the classy action comes from Huntingdon.
4.05 Bishops Road – Went off far too quickly in the Grand National Trial at Haydock last time but still ran well, only tiring late on.
If his jockey can preserve his energy a bit more on this sharper track, he has major claims off top weight.
This is by far the easiest race he’s contested of late and gives him a big chance to bounce back.
Bully's Sunday Bankers
3.55 Sedgefield – Cap Du Nord
4.05 Huntingdon – Bishops Road
3.55 Cap Du Nord – Justified favouritism at this track last time out, despite some iffy jumping.
A 6lb rise looks well within his grasp given his authority over the opposition that day and this tight track clearly suits.
First-time cheekpieces should help him and he has more to come under these conditions.
