County Hurdle Wait For Me - Each Way

Horse racing - County Hurdle - 17 Mar 14:10

In the County Hurdle, I've gone for Wait For Me. This is a race I'm not a huge fan of it's a massive field at a frantic pace, but I just feel we haven't seen the best of this horse lately and could it be he's been aimed at this all year? Wait For Me was a very good Bumper horse. He was third in the Champion Bumper at this track. He finished ahead of some very good sorts which include Champion Hurdle favourite Yanworth(164), Vigil(139), Supersundae(145), Bellshill(150) and OO Seven(148).

He was progressive over hurdles last season. He won 2 of his 4 starts. He trounced 140 rated Potters Legend despite hitting 3 of the final 4 hurdles so there's obviously a lot of talent in this horse. He was actually sent off favourite for this very race last season. He was sent off at 7/1 off 139 and he looked to hold every chance going to the last. He didn't jump too well so it was a good run in the circumstances to finish 4th.

He hasn't really fired subsequently but as a result his mark has tumbled down to 135. He is 4lbs lower then his good 4th last year so he has been given a real chance by the handicapper. We know this horse acts well around this course. He's 100% in terms of place ratio at Cheltenham Festivals. For me this is a really tough race to call, but I just think 25/1 is pretty big about Wait For Me especially considering how well his novice and Bumper form has subsequently worked out.

It could be this has been the plan all year for Wait For Me and off 135, he looks to hold solid claims *if* getting in to the race (money back if he doesn't anyway so). You could wait for the day and get possibly first 6 places but I think he will be a lot shorter then 25/1 come race time.
