Festival day 2 tips

Very tough card, I think. I’ll only be having one decent bet and that’s on D McCain’s Corrin Wood at 11/1 (Paddy Power) in the RSA. But I offer one in each race for the fun players as we managed 3 winners and a NR on Tuesday:

1.30:  Royal Boy

2.05: Corrin Wood

2.40: Far West

3.20:  Module

4.00: Sire Collonges

4.40: Orgilgo Bay

5.15: Black Hercules

Corrin Wood made all round Warwick – a very tricky jumping track, imo – even for experienced horses. He put in the best round of jumping I’ve seen there for a novice, even though he went right at a few fences. I think this jumping right is helping to push his price out, yet I got the impression that he could well have been doing it at Warwick just to meet the fence on the correct stride; it was never excessive. He battled on really well too when challenged and is my bet of the day, with Sire Collonges next best.

Good luck

Joe
