Dibble Decker won very nicely at Huntingdon yesterday by 10 lengths for his owners. Given a confident ride by Stan Sheppard, the partnership made every furlong a winning one with Dibble Decker eased down well before the line.
The performance was more like what we’ve seen at home and the drop back in trip was the key.
Present Value gave his all but found everything happing too quickly. It was good ground at Huntingdon yesterday and PV needs the mud.
Cheltenham trials day this afternoon, small fields again due to the quick ground. No rain for nearly three weeks which is not what we want at this time of the year.
Iceo would be my pick in the 12:45, a trail for the Triumph Hurdle. His time when winning at Kempton was well above average and he could be smart.
At Kempton this evening, I could have this totally wrong and likely have, Teekana priced at 18-1 might be worth a little bit EW.
