A bumper haul of three winners from five runners for SIX FOR THE WEEKEND followers on Saturday. Now it’s time for TIP OF THE DAY to regain the winning thread.
Monday 7th January
Taunton 1.10 WIN
After almost walking away from racing when their previous trainer, Howard Johnson, was banned, high-profile owners Andrea and Graham Wylie are currently enjoying something of a renaissance with horses in the care of Paul Nicholls and Willie Mullins. They paid £100,000 for this five-year-old son of Dr Massini after an eyecatching performance in an Irish point-to-point (even though he fell at last), and they should enjoy his first victory on UK soil this afternoon. The novice hurdler shaped nicely behind the classy Puffin Billy at Newbury’s Hennessy meeting last time out and, with Ruby Walsh aboard, he should appreciate this step-up in trip to 2m4f.
