Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Thursday 10th January

13:10 Leicester

The dream team of Coleman and Murphy can’t seem to do much wrong at the moment with an amazing 31% strike rate when this jockey and trainer team up. They come together at Leicester today with eight-year-old American Tom. An Irish import from the top yard of Willie Mullins he’s changed hands to join the yard of Olly Murphy and a lot is expected of this new recruit. He hails from a yard in blistering form and with a jockey who is having one of the best seasons of his career so far. All the positives point towards a big run in a race that, although competitive, looks very feasible for him to claim success.

Top weight Kingston has had a great campaign to date with three wins from his last six outings but looked lacklustre in his last two runs and is more than likely open to younger and fresher legs.

The father and son team of Peter and Sean Bowen look to have a very lively chance with Jeannot De Nonant dropping back down to Class 4 company after a campaign against much better opposition. If the seven-year-old gelding can reproduce the form he showed that saw him finish mid-division in last years Coral Cup he’s likely to make it a match race with our selection.




13:00 Catterick

According to the bookmakers only two horses have any sort of hope of winning the second race on the card at Catterick but even that I feel is a tad generous. Surely when you see jockey Richard Johnson (who’s the reigning national hunt champion no less) up against what could be described (albeit perhaps a tad unfairly) lesser established jockeys you have to make Johnson’s mount a very likely favourite. You add into the mix the fact his ride has won its last two races and hails from the top yard of Phillip Hobbs and you’ve got to feel it’s going to take a lot to see Johnson outside of the winner’s enclosure. His mount Come On Charlie won his last race at Musselburgh by an impressive enough six lengths and this race doesn’t look much more competitive. He still showed a few novice like errors and is likely to improve for his run last month. Should take all the beating and be ready to make it three from three.

Perhaps I was a tad harsh on Uno Mas but to find himself out at the race track once again in quick succession after yesterday’s run shouldn’t help his cause if he’s trying to run again so quickly.

Of the remainder, Leodis looks the most likely to follow home the main protagonists.
