Betfred Summer Plate Race Preview, Saturday 20th July 2013

With £50,000 Guaranteed Prize money up for grabs it should come as no surprise to see 25 declared runners for this race, but with the conditions expected to be ‘Good to Firm’ we might see this list shorten a bit as the ground isn’t going to be favourable to all of these and those praying for some rain do look like being disappointed it seems as the heatwave in the United Kingdom continues.

A number of these have obvious claims, but having gone through the form of each horse, I have narrowed the field down to my top three which I think have the best chance of winning this race and below I have provided a detailed explanation for each one.

1. Wolcombe Folly : Trained by Paul Nicholls and running off a mark of 150 has yet to win over this distance but shouldn’t have any trouble getting home as this son of Presenting has shown he has plenty of stanima on more than one occasion in the past as his two victories around Cheltenham prove.

Has not won a race since one of those victories around Cheltenham which came back in 2010, but from his ten races since then he has secured a top three finish in five of those and was unlucky in his most recent run when coming home in second place in the Stratford Caravans Handicap Chase won by Gentleman Anshan and with the talented young jockey Harry Derham taking off a valuable 5lb, Wolcombe Folly has a solid chance.

2. Galaxy Rock : Trained by Jonjo O’Neill and partnered by A P McCoy has won at this course and over the distance previously and is on a very favourable current mark of 133, although having yet to race over these sort of fast ground conditions he could very well be withdrawn on saturday morning.

However, if Jonjo O’Neill and his connections do decide to run him, then he could also be involved in the finish as he really will relish this test of stanima and with A P McCoy in the pilot’s seat you just the know he will get everything he possibly can out of Galaxy Rock when it matters.

3. Kings Legacy : Trained by Lawney Hill, this 9 year old will have no problems with the distance or the ground conditions and is also on a favourable mark of 129 which is two below what he has been running on in recent races.

David Bass takes the ride and will be the first time he has been in the pilot’s seat aboard Kings Legacy, but that shouldn’t put anyone off of about this horses chances as he as extremely impressive in the Ladbrokes Novices Chase last year in early June when coming home by 24 lengths.

Betfred Summer Plate Race Tips, Predictions & Naps.

From my three selections that made my short list above, the Paul Nicholls trained Wolcombe Folly has the best chance of coming home in front and with Harry Derham taking the ride and receiving a 5lb allowance, I am hoping that Wolcombe Folly can be up there and involved in the finish come saturday afternoon with the main danger coming from the Jonjo O’Neill stable in Galaxy Rock.
