There’s a good word for Laredo Sound to pay the day’s expenses in Taunton’s 1.40 Audrey Chudleigh Memorial Beginners’ Chase.
A pleasing seasonal return at Ascot has put him straight for this, and with his stable going well of late the six-year-old can get us back on the winning trail.
Ground and trip are spot on, and Taunton’s sharp track should pose no worries since he won at both Lingfield and Southwell over hurdles last season. He also has no qualms about racing right-handed, as a glance at his form shows wins as a two and three-year-old at San Siro and Clarefontaine.
What’s more, chief market rival Deep Purple is an understandable exchange negative after his poor chasing debut at Wetherby, so side with Laredo Sound to score at the first time of asking over fences. Snap up a bit of 15/8 with William Hill.
A little later in the afternoon if you’ve got a few quid to play up then an investement on Nicky Henderson’s Larks Lad wouldn’t go amiss. The stable aren’t exactly shy when it comes to training a bumper winner, and they say this fella is easily good enough to take Newbury’s 3.45 race, the 2m 1/2f bumper. He should end up around 2/1, the best price in the morning withPosted 9 years, 12 months ago
