Hereford each-way racing tip: Good Impression fancied to defy odds to make frame

Planet Sport Bet’s Friday night at the races concludes with this open-looking handicap hurdle that offers Hereford’s race-goers one last chance to end their evening’s entertainment on a winning note.

The mid-morning withdrawal of early market leader Jaxonne has had an inevitable knock-on effect of the betting, with last-time-out course-distance winner Captain Attridge emerging as his obvious replacement in the favourite mantle.

He could well overcome his five-pound penalty to replicate that win of 17 days ago, but his short price lacks the appeal of his closest market challenger, Colonel Lesley.

Under appreciably less weight, this proven eight-year-old could well outrank the favourite in more than name alone, if able to build on the performance that saw him hit the ground running after a 10-month break to finish second of 12 on season debut at Plumpton 12 days ago.

Valid arguments could also be made for the likes of No More Bolero and Lindwall, but it is one of the less-fancied outsiders that has, perhaps unsurprisingly, caught the eye of Tipstrr’s each-way specialists.

Nine-year-old Good Impression is the oldest runner in the field, but with those advancing years comes the winning experience that could prove invaluable in a race like this.

Alongside a plethora of near misses, Bernard Llewellyn’s gelding has eight career wins under his belt, two of which came last season, both at Newton Abbot.

He finished his 2023 campaign with a runner-up spot at the same venue, and has been eased gently back into action this term following a well-earned five-month winter break.

Sixth of nine in a pipe-opener at Uttoxeter in early April, Good Impression showed immediate progress when finished a decent fourth of 13 on his next (and last) outing at Ffos Las 17 days ago.

The recent rain should produce conditions to his liking, and with both trainer and jockey (Ben Jones) in decent form, it would be no surprise to see them outrun their double-digit odds to force their way into the frame.

Suggested best bet: Good Impression each-way in the 20:00 at Hereford
