No Duffer all the rage in busy Bangor market
PUNTERS who snaffled the early 14-1 about No Duffer will be hoping that he lives up to his name when he makes his debut over hurdles at Bangor this afternoon.
The Henry Daly-trained five-year-old finished second on his latest start in a bumper back in March and is popular for this first start over hurdles.
Richard Johnson's mount is now closing in on second favouritism at as short as 9-2 in a lively betting heat in which Kaylif Aramis and Global Domination have also come in for support.
The Mick Channon team know the time of day with their strong two-year-old squad so a move for their Sojoum in the opening nursery at Leicester this afternoon could be telling.
The daughter of Sixties Icon has yet to get her head in front in 12 starts but somebody clearly expects this step up to 7f on soft ground to play to her strength when she tackles 11 rivals at 12.50.
Available to back at 14-1 this morning she has been the subject of an across-the-board move and is now as short as 8-1 with Coral and Ladbrokes although she can be backed at 10-1 in a couple of places still.
The second division of the nursery closes the card at 4.20 and punters are putting their faith in the familiar team of Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes who join forces with well-backed favourite Glossy Posse. Placed in four of her seven starts, she is 7-4 and hardening to get her head in front this time.
