On Wednesday, 27 October, the NAP of the Day for SportsLens tipsters is Grandeur D’Ame. He makes his debut for new trainer Alan King in the opening 2m novice hurdle there (12:55). This French bred recruit from the Oliver Sherwood stables appeals to our experts as Bet of the Day at odds of Evens.
Grandeur D’Ame has joined a yard in fine form. This represent a big drop in class for him, so the ease in grade could help him resume winning ways. A five-year-old Desir D’Un Soir gelding, Grandeur D’Ame ran really well in two bumper starts last autumn.
Perhaps over-faced over hurdles during the winter, this Class 4 contest looks winnable. That is why we make him our Bet of the Day for 27 October. Read more reasons why backing this new recruit to Barbury Castle makes sense and he rates our NAP of the Day at that even money price.
Why will Grandeur D’Ame win?
Both the second and third horses home behind Grandeur D’Ame from his Newton Abbot debut bumper win 12 months ago have come out and landed hurdle races, so it shouldn’t be beyond him either. After that taking racecourse bow, he then chased home Good Risk At All in a Listed event at Cheltenham’s November Meeting.
Again, there is substance to the form with the winner going in again under a penalty. The third home, Weseekhimhere, has also scored over hurdles since, so it reads well. Sherwood asked an awful lot of Grandeur D’Ame when pitching him straight in at the deep end on his hurdles bow at Sandown in January.
The Grade 1 Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle is often run on desperate going. This winter proved no exception with Grandeur D’Ame completing albeit well behind Metier. He then ran fifth in a Listed event at Exeter. On both occasions, he conceded both hurdles and more racing experience to some top horses. Oscar Elite was also down the field at Exeter, but went on to place in 3m Grade 1 novice hurdles at Cheltenham and Aintree.
In relation to a much lower class event like this, the hurdles form isn’t too shabby. King has a good 20 per cent record with his Fakenham runners too. Grandeur D’Ame thus appeals at the odds on offer. Back him at his current price and a £25 wager returns £50. Should Grandeur D’Ame fail to make it third time lucky over obstacles, then QuinnBet returns the losing stake as a free bet.
