Daily Racing Multiple: Back a Scottish duo for Sunday success in Kelso 25/1 double

Alan Dudman’s Sunday double using the Sportsbook multiple is at Kelso, and he is backing a pair of thorough stayers that pays 25/1 for the win…

“The youngster is still seeking his first win under rules, but he gave Sutton Manor a decent ride from the front the other day and I expect him to have Prince Dundee up with the pace or making the running.”

You can back Deep Charm and Prince Dundee in a Sportsbook multiple at Kelso that pays 14.013/1

Deep has charmed me

Back Deep Charm @ 7/2 in the 13:05 at Kelso

SBK7/2

EXC5.2

Trainer: Stuart Coltherd
Jockey: Sam Coltherd
Age: 8
Weight: 11st 3lbs
OR: 109

Lucinda Russell is often I trainer I like to side with. I am sure many have their own particular handlers they are good at and not so good. Richard Hannon is one on the Flat, he has about 200 winners a season and I successfully punt around zero of them – some stables I just can’t get right.

But for once, I will have to leave Lucinda’s twin assault on this race with Boy’s On Tour and Ain’t My Fault who are big prices, as my Hexham form hat is on with Deep Charm.

He’s already made up into a better chaser than hurdler, which isn’t a surprise as he looked a real old fashioned Kayf Tara stayer when scoring by 13L last time in the north east. He sat on a slowish early pace, but when the tempo quickened down the far side he moved better than anything. But the best of him was the response after his jockey was under pressure with one fence to go through the long Hexham straight.

His stamina really came into play and he saw out the 3m in heavy ground very well. He previously finished second at Kelso on his chase/handicap debut in a 0-120 over 3m again, but they dawdled and went no pace at all – which was totally unsuitable.

With soft conditions again, I am not too downbeat on the drop to 2m6f, and he should have a chance to hustle up the favourite Pitempton Power.

Dundee deserves another chance

Back Prince Dundee @ 5/1 in the 15:40 at Kelso

SBK6/1

EXC9

Trainer: Lucinda Russell
Jockey: Patrick Wadge
Age: 9
Weight: 12st 7lbs
OR: 107

I backed Russell’s Prince Dundee last time out at Kelso over 3m2f, and while he ran well with his third runner-up podium finish on the spin, once again he was outstayed in a slog-fest in the mud.

He was behind his stablemate Buddha Scheme for a Lucinda 1-2 last time, but the winner has bundles of stamina, so there was no disgrace in finishing second. He’s had some tough races in his 12-race career so far as he landed a real brutal one at Hexham (again!) last spring in soft conditions with a relentless display of galloping.

Down to 3m with soft conditions won’t be an issue, and my gut instinct last time behind Buddha Scheme that perhaps it was just too heavy.

Russell has used her conditional jockeys well this term as Conner McCann has been a real find, but this time it’s Patrick Wadge on board. The youngster is still seeking his first win under rules, but he gave Sutton Manor a decent ride from the front the other day and I expect him to have Prince Dundee up with the pace or making the running.

If he wins, it could be a nice moment as Wadge’s family own a livery yard near the Borders track.

The selection is a solid horse that stays well and this looks a weak 0-105.
