I have picked out two bets on today’s card at Pontefract. Good luck if you decide to follow.

Pontefract Tips

12:45 – 1m2f Pontefract Sports And Education Foundation Handicap (Class 5)

David O’Meara looks to have found a good opportunity for SUDONA (NAP – 1 point win bet at 10/3) to break a sequence of three consecutive second place finishes and win for the first time since joining him from Hugo Palmer. This five-year-old mare was last seen chasing home a subsequent winner at Thirsk having also been the runner up on her seasonal reappearance/stable debut at Haydock. As a horse that stays further than this ten-furlong trip, she should be well suited by the testing nature of the course at Pontefract and is well drawn in stall 3. Vampish, with recent form figures of 122, and Little India, second at Haydock last time out, should also go well, and I also fancy the dual course winner Regal Mirage to outrun his big odds.

14:20 – 1m Napoleons Casino Bradford Handicap Division 1 (Class 5)

BILLY ROBERTS (1 point win bet at 4/1) led for a long way before going down by just a length over this course and distance last month. That was his first start of the year and came in a higher grade, so he looks to have an excellent chance off the same handicap mark today. The form of that reappearance run looks strong with the second, third, and seventh home all winning in Class 4 company since. This Richard Whitaker-trained seven-year-old won here off a higher handicap mark earlier in his career and is well drawn in stall 3. The biggest dangers look to be Casement, a winner at Pontefract last season, and Destroyer, successful at Leicester 12 days ago.
