Time: 12:35 Course: Stratford
Name: Donnie Azoff Advice: 1.00pt WIN (2/1 Bet365)
Form: 521621 Trainer: Jamie Snowdon Jockey: Gavin Sheehan
Summary: DONNIE AZOFF won over the Stratford course back in August and returns here, taking a drop in class for this selling hurdle over the 2m3f.
They are only 1 lb higher from that win, and this is a great opportunity to get another win for the year.
Gavin Sheehan keeps the ride having ridden him for all his career runs – so he should know him well and how he likes to race.
Donnie Azoff has [previously won on heavy ground, so the wet conditions shouldn’t be an issue.
Time: 16:35 Course: Newcastle
Name: Rainbow Rain Advice: 1.00pt WIN (3/1 PP/Betfair)
Form: 912211 Trainer: Tracy Waggott Jockey: Tom Eaves
Summary: RAINBOW RAIN has been in great form and looks set to make it a hat-trick of wins.
They won over course and distance back in September and have been raised 3 lbs for that victory. Studying the form, I believe there could be more to come off his new mark.
Tom Eaves has been on board for 3 of his wins this year and has a great relationship with Tracy Waggott’s horses.
If they can get an easy lead and dictate the pace, then I see no reason why they shouldn’t be competing for the win again.
