Robin Goodfellow’s racing tips: Best bets for Saturday, February 5


Robin Goodfellow’s racing tips: Best bets for Saturday, February 5











Evan Williams is best known for training staying chasers but DANS LE VENT (Sandown, nap, 2.55) can redress the balance with success in the Virgin Bet Heroes Handicap Hurdle.

The selection has strung together a series of highly creditable efforts partnered by trainer’s daughter Isabel.

Those runs included a win at Haydock in November and I was impressed with his display at Kempton in a modestly run Lanzarote Hurdle last time.

That was a contest where it paid to race prominently yet habitual hold-up horse Dans Le Vent was anchored in rear throughout before performing a near miracle to finish fifth, despite being hampered by a late faller.

Sandown may not be the ideal track to try to deliver those tactics but if yesterday’s rain renders conditions less speed faring, then Dans Le Vent could have a big say.
