Analysis of the race:
Quick Pick ran a solid race last time when second in a bumper at Warwick, he was denied a clear passage that day but still managed to be a decent second, with the third horse winning its next race at Exeter by over 4l.
Bumper form can be quite difficult to work out ,as a majority of these young National Hunt horses are gaining an education before racing over obstacles.
I think Quick Pick can win today, with the likely danger being Brecon Hill, he has been running well and is now with Sally Haynes. I believe she has taken out a temporary license due to the sad death of her partner Alan Swinbank, who had Brecon Hill under his care.
Ride of the week:
Hawkbill was given a good ride to win yesterday at Newbury, this classy horse was allowed to dictate matters from the front under William Buick, with Buick getting the fractions right in rain softened ground. It was a masterful ride by the Godolphin jockey and I was pleased to see this horse win for my former work colleague, trainer Charlie Appleby.
My EW advised bet on Somehow yesterday was just out of the frame in 4th, she was not quite good enough,and will probably appreciate a step up in trip judging on yesterdays fair effort. I did think Ribchester was a big danger, and it was a good performance by the Richard Fahey trained colt to win.
Quick Pick is a non runner at Market Rasen today.
