Manshoor backed to give Wadham more success

LUCY WADHAM, who enjoyed big-race success with Baby Shine at Kempton on Saturday, is expected to be celebrating another big-priced winner at Plumpton following a significant move for Manshoor in the 2m handicap hurdle.

A course and distance winner in 2011, he's now 5lb lower than his last winning mark, although that victory also came in 2011. Bet365 originally went 20-1 about the eight-year-old rediscovering his form today but good support has forced that firm into 8-1, with 9-1 the best on offer.

In the opener (2.20) at Kempton, Celtic Charm has halved in price to 3-1 to put a string of unlucky efforts behind him in the 1m4f handicap.

Lucy Wadham: on the mark at Kempton on Saturday

  PICTURE: Mark Cranham  

Trained by Pat Phelan, both his previous wins have been at Lingfield but from four Kempton runs, he's only finished outside the money once and appears a shrewd each-way investment.

Punters are banking on He's A Striker's superior experience giving him the edge in a tight Wolverhampton maiden at 4.30.

Two of the four runners make their debut, while Majeed sees a racecourse for just the second time. In contrast, He's A Striker makes a fifth appearance and is now the general 13-8 favourite to make up for his 1-4 defeat ten days ago, having been as big as 3-1 when the offices opened.
