Placespotter - Nottingham 3.50 5 Emerald at 12/1 / 3 Hit The Jackpot at 20/1 (1/2 point each way each horse)
Finally to Nottingham and a decent handicap at 3.50 over 10 furlongs. I have to admit
I was a bit stumped on this one with three horses standing out, the fact that one of them
(Storm Rock) was declared a non runner at 8.15am - has made the decision easy.
Emerald is a potentially well handicapped horse dropped in Grade and the long straight
here will suit it very well. Hit The Jackpot is a rank outsider on the basis of its recent form
BUT it was running well off this kind of mark as recently as April, and has always been
a horse who has run its best races on Spring and Autumn ground and this handicap
mark, really does jump off the page in that context.
