Grand National Trial at Haydock - Pobbles Bay a Beauty

Rate this Entry
I'm sweet on Pobbles Bay. His chase mark has been dropped significantly for a few hard races last season on heavy ground. He had a pipe opener the last day over hurdles, finishing a respectable third. I fancy he'll run really well here back on decent ground off 131.

He was beating horses such as Ibis Du Rheu back into second in his novice handicap chase days; he also beat the quite highly rated Bun Doran who I've backed for this years Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival. He's good at beating higher rated horses when receiving weight.

He won those two races after having a several-month break, which he gets again now. He's lightly raced, still unexposed, on a really workable handicap rating too. I look forward to seeing if he can serve it up to the higher rated horses. I think he can do it.
