Abbot's Whispers - Wednesday 5 June

Abbot’s Whispers – Wednesday 6 June

Planning on joining us for more horseracing here in the sunny South West of England on Wednesday 5 June? If so, take a look at our Abbot’s Whispers below for the afternoon horseracing fixture.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, you don’t have to miss out. Tickets will be available on the gate on the day.

Race 1 – 2.20

Vexillum sets the standard on recent form, but he was rated a long way below ROSSLYN CASTLE on the flat and that rival has the potential to improve now he encounters a sound surface for the first time over hurdles. Anay Turge has place prospects providing the ground isn’t too quick, while Revaader is another that could go well in receipt of plenty of weight.

Race 2 – 2.50

Chestnut Ben is sure to give his supporters a good run for their money, but he proved a little frustrating last season and that theme has continued in three starts this term. Tony McCoy could make the difference today, but WESTER ROSS is on a tempting mark and looks a decent alternative after hinting at a return to form on his latest outing. Maizy Missile is another that makes some appeal and she’s certainly capable of making the frame if back to her best.

Race 3 – 3.20

This looks to concern the two market leaders and while neither is totally bombproof, preference is for NO LOOSE CHANGE. Although disappointing when last seen, he had previously taken a handicap chase from a mark of 124 which gives him excellent claims here and he’s not had too many chances over hurdles. Otto The Great commands the utmost respect, but it was disappointing he couldn’t see off some lesser rated rivals on his latest start.

Race 4 – 3.50

An intriguing chase as Baby Mix could eclipse all of today’s rivals if able to reproduce his juvenile form over fences, but recent form is poor and the market may be the best guide to his chance today. Suerte Al Salto is a likeable type but the penalty he carries may resign him to minor honours only, so DE FAOITHESDREAM who kept some good company over hurdles just gets the verdict. Lemon Drop Red is another that may prove better than he showed over hurdles and could also go close in an open race.

Race 5 – 4.20

Not many of these can be fancied with confidence on recent showings, although Drawn Free ran well enough on his latest start and although he’s had a few chances, should be thereabouts once more. Antonius Lad steps into a handicap for the first time and may improve on some modest efforts to date, but a chance is given to ROLANTA who might be able to put some tame efforts behind her following a break, especially with her yard in such good form.

Race 6 – 4.50

AMUSE ME might have finished closer with a more fluent leap at the second-last on his most recent visit here and the form has been upheld with the second running well in defeat since. At the age of seven he still has potential to improve and he gets the verdict ahead of Lough Derg Way who made a pleasing chase debut when beating a stablemate of the selection last month. Both Aikideau and Papradon are others to consider.

Race 7 – 5.20

THE WEE MIDGET is taken to improve on his recent reappearance, now that he encounters a sounder surface. The yard’s horses have been running well of late and the booking of Richard Johnson looks significant. Master Wells is in good order and is likely to be thereabouts, along with Orion Express, both of whom represent yards in good form. Ladyvie is another that is weighted to go well, if at the top of her game.
