This One's On The House

Walford Hurdler To Resume Progressive Path

It is often said that horses aren't machines, so an occasional off day from a reliable performer can be ignored and Grey Britain may well prove this later today. It is more difficult with a less experienced performer, however, and we have this scenario today with MANVERS HOUSE in the Follow Us On Twitter @starsports bet Maiden Hurdle at Wincanton. If he was coming into today's event off his penultimate effort he would likely be about the 4/1 mark instead of the 10/1 widely offered but he slightly disappointed last time out when a 27 lengths fourth to Pym at Kempton after being backed into 3/1 second favourite. That was, in fact a decent performance, with the first home having been a runner up at Cheltenham in November and the second and third being Flat and National Hunt winners. Manvers House's previous run, a six length fourth to Cheltenham entry Champagne Platinum and just his third in total, was full of promise. TREVELYN'S CHOICE is a hot favourite but will be shorter than his form warrants, coming from the Nicholl's yard to Wincanton but Manvers House, a big, imposing type is top on BTO regular and speed figures and gets two positives. There's also no getting away from Colditz Castle who is second on ratings but Manvers looks solid each way.
