Henderson ready to strike with Snake Eyes
NICKY HENDERSON has unleashed the likes of Bobs Worth and Darlan in the 2m novice hurdle at Kempton (1.00) in past seasons and he could have another potential star with Snake Eyes in today's race.
Third in a bumper at Fairyhouse earlier this year, the strength of that form has already been significantly boosted, with winner Clondaw Kaempfer, now with Donald McCain, taking a Listed novice hurdle at Haydock on Saturday.
A best-priced 1-5, Snake Eyes is expected to hit the jackpot for Henderson and owner JP McManus.
Away from Kempton, Get It On is proving popular in the 2.15 at Ludlow for Evan Williams, now 5-1 from as big as 10-1. The seven-year-old has not won for over a year, but Williams has a good strike-rate at the track and stable conditional Conor Ring takes 10lb off.
