Ffos Las best bet (1735): Second chance for Good Impression after early-season pipe-opener

There’s some decent jumps racing to enjoy at Ffos Las on Tuesday afternoon, and the very last race on the card looks likely to give Welsh race-goers plenty to talk about as they make their way home.

If the early market is a reliable yardstick, then this two-mile handicap should be a cut-and-dried affair, with the unexposed short-priced favourite Smart Casual strongly fancied to land a blow for trainer Anthony Honeyball.

Last time out in late March, this six-year-old gave the impression that there was better to come when finishing a creditable runner-up of six over a longer trip in more testing conditions at this venue.

However, the favourite remains a maiden after nine attempts, and any question marks hanging over him could leave the door ajar for any of his rivals, all of whom appear to be much more attractively priced.

While arguments could be made for several of his dozen rivals, the pick of the bunch appears to be Bernard Llewellyn’s versatile nine-year-old, Good Impression, who was a two-time winner on the Flat early in his career.

He has since transferred that ability seamlessly to hurdling, winning six of his 20 outings over obstacles (one of which was over this course and distance), along with a further five attempts making the frame.

Suggested best bet: Good impression in the 17:35 at Ffos Las

Four of those placed finishes came in his last six appearances of a productive 2023 campaign, including a couple of tidy wins at Newton Abbot, before he was given a well-earned six-month winter break.

Good Impression looked like a horse in need of the run when finishing sixth of eight on his reappearance in testing heavy conditions at Uttoxeter a month ago.

That performance saw his mark eased by a pound, which is reduced further by the useful three-pound claim of retained jockey Robert Williams, and if that last run served to blow away a few cobwebs, then it would be no surprise to see him get back on track here.
