Williams eyes weekend winners

December 15, 2012 09:24:05 UK

Venetia Williams had a good day at Bangor and Cheltenham yesterday giving a good reason to take a close look at her runners today.

Tenor Nivernais (7/1) turned over the Tony McCoy-ridden red hot favourite in the opener at the Welsh track before Plen Pouvier - ridden by Harry Challoner - won the second in the West Country at 12/1.

He [Mon Mome] is the type of horse who loves being in training and he doesn't want to stand in a field doing nothing.

Aidan Coleman

Stable jockey Aidan Coleman just missed out in the next despite a sustained challenge from another Williams horse - Quartz De Thaix - all the way up the run-in.

With the horses in such good form it would be unwise not to give them a second look this afternoon particularly with Coleman aboard and assessing their chances.

Writing in his Racing UK blog he explains that he hopes Pepite Rose copes with the underfoot conditions because if so "he'll have a cracking chance if she can in the Jenny Mould Memorial Handicap".

He also believes that Renard ran a good race to come third at Newbury a fortnight ago and he'll appreciate the step up to two miles and five furlongs in the big race, the Paul Stewart Gold Cup.

Mon Mome has amazingly never won a hurdle race in 11 attempts but goes in the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle at  with Coleman saying: "He faced the prospect of retirement but he is the type of horse who loves being in training and he doesn't want to stand in a field doing nothing.

"I'm not suggesting he'll win today but he could pick up a weak hurdle race at a weak track this season, and he might also take in some staying chases."

Mon Mome is 41.00 to win the race, while Aerial is 5.00 and Midnight Appeal is at 17.00.
