Thursday Pocket Bulger ( or not lol )...

Another dull racing day as we amble slowly towards the weekend , but its another week of January wiped away and we are another week nearer Spring , Spain and some much needed Sun.....Yesterday's stand alone bet was a nice winner and we have just the one Juvenile Hurdle to look at today.

INTENSE TANGO is a serious hotpot in this and has already attracted support at 1.74 and this is on the back of a debut over timber in which it raced in a Listed event over 2m at Aintree coming 2nd to a nice looking Alan King type rated 120 with beaten runners behind rated around 115 this looks solid although it wouldnt want much more rain.
Jazzy Lady has a couple of 2nds on its CV but is largely unremarkable and doesnt give much at the end and looks a weak 2nd Fav at 6.2.
MAGIC MAGNOLIA however has some decent placed form and although exposed was placed when splitting 125 rated Ellison runners recently and that gives him every chance of running again into a place or better  ( although unlikely ) but only appeal if decent double figure odds.

If you want to take on this hotpot then SAINT LUCY is probably the best bet EW as it did nothing fto but the JJ O N'eill yard was  woefully out of sorts but on weds did strike back with a couple of placed efforts and a winner so this could be a turning point in the yards fortunes??...it is a bit of a punt and i would need a decent or fair price to get involved ( around 10/1 ) but it could improve 20lbs easily..

In SUMMARY : INTENSE TANGO will in all likelihood Win this and win well in what is a very ordinary looking field full of under performers and low achievers i will be very surprised if this doesnt take this down en route to bigger events in the future with an eye probably more on Aintree than Cheltenham and it will have to win well to justify any of these thoughts, the distance should prove no problem , the opponents should be blown away with only a very slight concern about the ground this is a strong bet although 4/6 is the lowest i would probably go ( in fact im gonna try and get Evens in the run and if not matched then no bet , ..actually maybe 1.90 )....so thats it really..nothing to get excited about but a solid looking WIN bet to round the day off and hopefully more to come in a packed weekend brochure.
