Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Thursday 13th December

13.15 Newcastle

Highland Hunter lived up to the hype and confirmed his early promise following point to point and bumper successes when romping home at Ayr last time out on hurdling debut. Lucinda Russell’s latest recruit was so impressive that day with the manner of the win and the astute Scottish trainer has found him an immediate chance to follow up and defy a penalty in a very modest field here today so he gets the confident nod to follow up. Bubbles of Gold for the in-form Olly Murphy team would rate the biggest danger to the selection, but was well beaten in his bumper and would need to step up massively on that form to trouble the selection.



18.45 Chelmsford

On paper this looks like a tightly contested handicap over 1m, but in reality this could be a massive opportunity for the talented, but enigmatic Firmament, trained by David O’Meara, to get his head back in front. He seems to be getting steadily closer to the winner’s enclosure as he continues to slip down the weights and he looks primed to strike in this one. He was only beaten a length over course and distance a week ago when strongly running on towards the finish and this one looks a lot easier so he is the confident pick to land the spoils. Stablemate Mythical Madness would rate as the main danger to the selection as he is a consistent sort at this level who is capable on his day and the assistance of Adam Kirby will help his cause.
