BEN’S BEST BETS

Racing Ahead - - DIARY OF AN AMATEUR PUNTER -

PALMERS HILL - Cruised to vic­tory on race­course de­but over a trip that will turn out to be on the short side for him. He looks a novice to fol­low and should be a big player next time out even if stepped up in grade.

WHISKY IN THE JAR - A novice I am look­ing for­ward to this year trained by Dan Skelton. Looked classy in his bumper and should be good enough to win first time out per­haps over 2m 4f. CUT THE COR­NER - Alas­tair Ralph’s horse just jumped to the front at Lud­low when he clat­tered the third last. He re­mains un­ex­posed over 3m and can make amends pos­si­bly back at that course in the near fu­ture. His trainer’s low pro­file might mean he goes off at a price.
