Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Wednesday 2nd January

ONE FOR HARRY with R Day wins Handicap Hurdle at Wetherby 14-1-17.

14.40 Ayr

Nicky Richards knows the winner’s enclosure very well indeed at this sharp Scottish track in scenic Ayrshire, and he looks to have a fantastic chance of returning there today. 10yo stalwart One for Harry makes his return to the track having been well beaten on his reappearance run, but he looked like he really needed the run that day and has slipped back to a winning mark. He has also won second time out in each of the previous two seasons and will likely be poised to strike here so gets the nod. The main danger will be the Keith Dalgleish trained Senor Lombardy who returns hurdling having struggled in novice chasing ranks. He was a decent novice hurdler and will give the selection something to think about.

Racing Post nap of the day

14.20 Wolverhampton

An unexposed Military Law looks the one to beat in this one with the mighty John Gosden looking to start 2019 with a winner. The Dubawi gelding looks primed for action after just being touched out last time returning from over a year off and he can show his class to land the spoils here. The more experienced Michele Strogoff is the clear danger and comes here seeking a hat trick, but would need a soft lead to pinch this one so the Gosden horse is the clear pick.

MILITARY LAW (WIN) – NAP
