Tip For The Grade 2 Bet365 Select Hurdle At Sandown On Saturday: Call Me Lord The Banker Bet On Last Day Of Jumps Season
April 25, 2018
Since joining trainer Nicky Henderson from France the Simon Munir and Isaac Souede-owned Call Me Lord has shown a liking for Sandown Park, winning twice and finishing a narrow runner-up on the other occasion. The five-year-old son of Slickly looked to have a tough task on his first start for his new handler when burdoned with top weight of 11st 12lb in the bet365 Juvenile Hurdle at the Esher track 12 months ago.

Making good headway to challenge at the final hurdle the mount of Daryl Jacob ran out a convincing three and three quarter length winner, earling a mark of 143 in the process. Sent to Huntingdon for his seasonal reappearance in November Call Me Lord failed to justify odds-on favouritism when only third behind the exposed 33-1 chance Unison.

It may be that the gelding needed that first run for seven months as on his next start he found little difficulty in giving almost two stone and a beating to the bang-in-form Our Merlin, winner of his three previous races. Sent to Wincanton next for the Champion Hurdle trial, Kingwell Hurdle, Call Me Lord failed to cope with the classy pair of Elgin and Ch’Tibello in a race where tactics played a big part.
Back to Sandown for his most recent start in the valuable Matchbook Imperial Cup Call Me Lord put up one of the best performances in a handicap this season when, under top weight of 11st 12lb, the 8-1 chance failed by only a neck to concede lumps of weight to the winner Mr Antolini with the third horse a long nine lengths back in the 17-runner Grade 3 contest. On Saturday Call Me Lord faces a stiff test against Stayers’ Hurdle third Wholestone but in receipt of 6lb and on his favourite track looks the best bet on the final day of the 2017/18 national hunt season.
