Pontefract and Tipperary Monday
Two selections at Ponte and Tipperary ...
Pons Aelius (colt by Galileo) for trainer Mark Johnston and ridden by former champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa (SDS).
Cost 100k. You can forgive his last run on the all weather (Galileo’s dont have the best record there) and his debut run for the same reason. Hopefully today is the day he shows ability on the track in what looks a weak race.
Odds: 13/2 (Bet365). E/W advised.
Sussex (by Dubawi) for trainer Aidan O’Brien.
It’s rare to see O’Brien running a Dubawi and even rarer at Tipperary where Dubawi boasts a course record of 4 wins out of 10. This colt is having his second start so hopefully he is ready today to take a step forward.
Odds: 11/2+ (Win).
