Hidden Dilemma?

There really doesn’t look to be much between any of these runners, so this could be an exciting contest even though it is a small field.

Seven-year-old Hidden Dilemma is at the head of the market and she has been a winner in two hurdle races at 2m 1f and 2m 4f.

There was a second-place for her on her last trip when she was 2 lengths back of Skewiff in a chase among five at Carlisle. She has only gone up 2lb and she will be looking for her first win since a December 2018 success at Carlisle and is 2/1 to nail it* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 00:50 GMT on Tuesday, 3rd March 2020)


Distance winner Shesasupermack has taken second-place finishes in her last two trips. The most recent of those was when she made her chase debut at Musselburgh over a 2m 4f trip in February.

She was just over a couple of lengths back of the winner in that one, but from a very healthy 9/1 quote nonetheless.

Shesasupermack has not been outside of the top three in any of her last three races and those were in fixtures with much bigger fields than this one.

She is a solid 11/4 option for Newcastle on Tuesday* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 00:50 GMT on Tuesday, 3rd March 2020)

Molly Carew

Eight-year-old Molly Carew was third at 4/1 in her last run. That was a Taunton chase over a slightly longer distance than this. The last win that Molly Carew took was at the end of February last year.

While she has not been outside of the top four in any of her five races since then, that winning touch has just been missing by her, even in some smaller fields which leaves her out at 5/2* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 00:50 GMT on Tuesday, 3rd March 2020)

Haul Us In

Haul Us In was a beaten favourite on her last trip. That was at 2m 5f at Carlisle in February. She was the 2/1 favourite for that and she ended up getting well beaten actually, coming home fourth of five.

She is the top weight for this fixture as well, which is probably going to work against her. Positive claims will come from her January 25th class win at Uttoxeter at 2m 6f.

That fourth at Carlisle, in what was just a disappointing run, snapped a three-race streak of at least top-two finishes and she doesn’t look out of the picture at 4/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 00:50 GMT on Tuesday, 3rd March 2020).

Predictions & Tips

There’s no easy pick out of this fixture at all because it is all evenly competitive. Hidden Dilemma looked good on her handicap debut last time out and warrants some respect.

Molly Carew is back at the same rating as she was when she claimed a February win in 2019. Shesasupermack has been delivering some consistent form recently and has been jumping well. Haul Us In can’t be written off solely because of a poor trip at Carlisle last month.

It’s all up in the air. But the pick is going to be Shesasupermack because of consistency. She has been there or thereabouts in her last two trips and can prevail.
