SUPER SATURDAY'S CONTINUE!!

 

Saturday 6th October

 

"One that would appreciate very drop of rain is Raising Sand. Coming here off of a decent effort in the Cambridgeshire, Raising Sand - surprisingly yet to win at the trip – loves Ascot and was third in last year’s renewal only beaten by group horses Accidental Agent and Lord Glitters. Jamie Osborne’s gelding gets in here off of a 2lb lower mark and has a cracking each-way chance at 9/1."  WON 5/1

 

"Later on the card (and hopefully after more rain) Alaadel lines up in the 5f sprint a fresh horse having looked the one to take out of the Ayr Bronze Cup. He got no luck at all that day but the silver lining is that he was dropped 2lbs and gets in here only 4lbs higher than when beating Baron Bolt last autumn. The drop to the minimum trip is an unknown but he has an each-way chance here at 8/1." unpl 4/1 fav

 

"At Newmarket, the filly Rawdaa looks to have been crying out for a step up in trip and will appreciate 10f after some decent efforts over a mile. She is yet to encounter soft ground so any easing in the going would be an unknown factor but she is a worthy fav at 7/2."  WON 5/2

 

"Intense Romance is in good form and will appreciate the rain that is expected to fall before racing...she looks good each-way value at 16/1 which won't last long if the going is soft"   WON 11/1 (soft)  

 

Advice for the Arc (on Sunday 7th):

 

"Enable should win on all known form but racing is rarely that simple and I’d prefer to have a crack with a couple of each-way pokes: Capri is really interesting with some firms going 16/1 with enhanced places....Capri appears to be stable second string but is favoured by freshness and a good draw over Kew Gardens. Cloth Of Stars is another who can step-up on recent form and out-run his price (25/1 4 places). Most firms have been slow pricing up w/o Enable markets and they will be worth considering on Sunday morning."

Result:  Enable WON Evs, Cloth Of Stars (3rd 25/1) Capri (5th 25/1)

 

Saturday 22nd September

 

"Having missed the big prices on Son Of Rest for the Ayr Gold Cup I woudn't normally be interested but he's a group horse 10lbs well in, in a handicap and still represents value at 7/1"  WON (DH) 5/1

 

"I put up Al Qawah for the Ayr Gold Cup but having missed the cut (stakes returned he now goes for the Silver Cup at 11/1) 2nd 4/1 Fav

 

Saturday 8th September

 

"Mekong looks the bet of the day...from 13/2 on Friday morning after his superb run at York and proven form on heavy ground and with at least two rivals already ruled out he’s currently a best priced 9/4" [2/1]  WON 9/4

 

"Here Comes When (2:25) has solid Group 1 form in testing conditions and looks the bet here at 6/1(R4) [9/2]"  WON 3/1

 

 

Saturday 1st September

 

"Elsewhere most of the races look minefields and could end up being expensive to play in but I suggest Global Applause each-way @ 10/1"  WON 15/2

 

 

Saturday 25th August

 

"York gets underway with the Group 3 Strensall Stakes and we have a genuine Group 1 performer that could easily have gone to Goodwood for the Group 2 mile. There is an argument that Lord Glitters is over-priced at 15/8 given his form this season...I would suggest backing Lord Glitters (with a saver on Threading)"  WON 2/1

 

"Today’s nap is at Chelmsford where I’m really keen on Multhilla in the opener (7/2). Marco Botti’s filly has improved with each run and the step-up in trip looks ideal. The form of her last run has worked out well and I think an opening mark of 67 looks lenient"  2nd

 

"...“next best” is Stylehunter who I had in mind for the Cambridgeshire or the consolation race - so I would expect him to win today if he’s to have any chance at Newmarket, the step-up in trip is a positive and I expect him to run well - 2 points win at 11/8"  WON 8/11

 

 

 

Saturday 18th August

 

"Squats (WON 15/2) won the 7f handicap on the card (3:00) last year and has an excellent chance of following up here on more favourable terms but I wouldn’t write off the chances of Graphite Storm (3rd 9/1) being able to reverse that form despite being worse off and he’s worth an each-way bet too. I put up Sabador (2nd 5/1) at Ascot his rider employed front running tactics that clearly didn’t suit, he remains on a good mark and joins my other picks as three against the field”  [Tricast paid: £417; Trifecta paid £818]

 

"Hamada steps up from handicap company and with the improvement he’s shown already I expect him to be competitive at this level. There are several likely threats but 3/1 is a fair price and worth a bet. I expect him to be popular on the day."  WON 7/4

 

"My most likely winner on Saturday is Star Terms... a progressive filly who starts her Nursery career on a mark of 83 which seems fair compared with the lenient mark allotted to the horse she beat last time... 2 points win @ Evs"  WON 10/11

 

Saturday 28th July (3 winners from only 7 bets)...

 

"At York Flying Pursuit won the Skybet Dash last year and although he bids to retain it off of a 4lbs higher mark, the gelding is 2lbs lower than when a good 4th in the Great St Wilfrid last year, is not ground dependant and has a fair each-way chance (20/1 R4)...WON 9/1

 

...Get Knotted also looks to have sound claims of repeating a win from the 2017 renewal."  WON 9/4

 

"Newcastle has no going concerns on the AW and there’s a decent class 3 handicap, I think two are over-priced and with some firms going 4 places it’s worth backing both Breanski 8/1 [WON 15/2] - progressive and proven at the track - [and Storm Ahead]" unpl 12/1

 

(As if that wasn't enough, we added one bet on the Sunday):

"...one I am interested in is Onefootinfront. Two races ago he bumped into one of Sir Mark’s plot horses who won off of 58 and is now rated 70 after rattling up a four-timer. Stepped up in trip after that the selection duly won over CD. Up 4lbs for that victory (8th and 11th have both placed since) he should still be competitive...and suggest a bet @ 4/1"  WON 4/1

 

 

ANOTHER Saturday gamble landed...

 

Saturday 21st July.

 

"Stratum was another eye-catcher from the royal meeting when not getting the run of the race and still managing to finish third. He looks a decent stayer and has been raised only 2lbs for the effort - 1 point win @ 9/2"  WON 11/4

 

"Ice Cold In Alex is the value to over-turn the form of a similar race over CD where he was badly hampered - 1/2 point each-way @ 6/1"  WON 9/2

 

"In the Summer Plate give Shantou Village another chance as he gets in here off of a mark 7lbs lower than when winning on finale day at Sandown last year. He has run some poor races since then but at 12/1 with 4 places he’s well worth an each-way punt." 3rd 11/1

 

Saturday 14th July

 

"Wadilsafa went into the notebook after Ascot where he pulled hard in the Hampton Court and I think the drop back in trip should help him settle and he should be backed here at 11/4".  WON 7/4

 

"The Bunbury Cup has always been one of my favourite handicaps so I always like to play in the race, there’s no solid bet for me this year but Von Blucher and Cardsharp 25/1 (4th 20/1) are a couple of decent each-way pokes"  

 

Saturday 7th July

 

"No members bet today, although I am interested in Lunar Carona each-way...there is some 11/2 on Monday evening but generally only 3/1..."  WON 2/1

 

"HORSEPLAY – I took on God Given last time out and came off second best but I’ve been hoping to see this filly back at 1m 4f after her cracking effort against Coronet at York. That piece of form is arguably the best on offer here and although she’s yet to win at the trip she’s bred to stay and the ground probably went against her in Enable’s Oaks. A little disappointed to see her made fav here, I still think 11/4 is worth a bet." WON 11/4

 

"... only one bet advised, I think Bet365 have made a mistake pricing up Letsbe Avenue at 15/2; the Lawman gelding really caught the eye on seasonal debut at Sandown when slightly unlucky and he is expected to come on for that, off of mark of 75 he has a great each-way chance..."  WON 16/1

 

Pilaster won a decent novice event at Chelmsford and the daughter of Nathaniel should relish the step up in trip... she should be backed at 5/2”  WON Evs

 

 

Week commencing 13th August

 

"Burn Some Dust...has improved stepping-up to middle-distances, he won well over an extended 1m 4f last time out (2nd won since) and a 5lb rise doesn’t appear excessive. He should go well again"  WON 5/2

 

Week commencing 7th August

 

"I had Just In Time (2nd 5/2) and Vis A Vis (WON 4/1) as joint favs at around 9/4 so I'm surprised to see them at 13/8 and 4/1 respectively - the latter is the more progressive and looks the value at 4/1."

 

"I will be looking to back Look Surprised (6/1). She has been progressive this season and although she wasn’t that impressive when winning at Salisbury, the fourth that day won last Friday, she acts on the track, has a fairly low draw and has sound each-way claims"  WON 4/1

 

"I do like the progressive Good Effort who has improved nicely with each race and an opening mark of 79 looks a winnable one. The Sharmadal colt is up against some experienced handicappers here and, although 5/1 is tempting, it would only take one non-runner to change the shape of the market significantly and prevents me from advising as a full bet" WON 2/1 (all eight ran)

 

 

 

"May the odds be ever in your favour"

"Prince Of Rome put up a decent effort at the Essex track on his second start when no match for Quiet Endeavour (now rated 101). Last time out Prince Of Rome ran well enough despite appearing not to act on the fast ground and could appreciate the drop to 5f"  WON 5/4 < 11/4

"...one I am interested in is Onefootinfront; two races ago he bumped into one of Sir Mark’s plot horses who won off of 58 and is now rated 70...stepped up in trip after that the selection duly won over CD.

"Blue Point... may be the each-way angle of the race. His form with Harry Angel last season entitles him to have place claims here and is worth an interest at 8/1"  WON 6/1

 

"God Given has by far the best form in the race and ran a cracker on seasonal debut at Ascot in a race where the form has been franked; that was only a listed event but she is expected to come on for that run back against her own sex (WON 9/4)... Crimson Rosette has it all to do on ratings but she has place claims and would be my idea of a bet at 28/1 (2nd 14/1)"

 

“Alfie Solomons was a real eye-catcher on debut at Newbury where the colt reportedly ran green and can improve again here.”  WON 6/4

 

Derby Day only two bets:

York Dante week:

 

Afaak - WON 9/2 (adv 15/2)

Time Change - WON 11/4 (adv 9/2)

 

"James Watt is a confident nap ; the colt won very impressively on his debut at Brighton and the runner-up won a competitive maiden at Chester last week... I advise a bet at any odds againstWON 2/1

 

"Titus was a classic contender as a 2-y-o after defeating Venice Beach but like many Of Weld’s last season never have his true running... having moved to Declan Caroll he was smashed into 9/1 for the Spring Mile before floundering in the testing conditions... he is expected to show considerable improvement today."  WON 5/1 (adv 10/1)

 

"Pettochside is worth an each-way interest at 11/2 with most of the field looking exposed." WON 7/1

 

"A very difficult start to Newmarket’s Craven meeting but I do like the chances of Mjjack. Well supported when disappointing first time up at Doncaster, he'll appreciate a return to 7f and better ground. Skybet go 5 places at 13/2 which is a decent each-way bet" 

WON 7/1

 

"I had Thomas Patrick ear-marked for the handicap chase but I didn’t expect him to be fav, it’s a race I would be looking to play each-way...with enhanced place offers he looks a safe e/w pick at 5/1"  WON 3/1

...

"...Kilfilum Cross should be backed (WON 15/8) and at the day’s only flat card at Wolverhampton the best race of the night is the Conditions Stakes where Doctor Sardonicus (WON 3/1) is my idea of the fav with a draw and fitness advantage over Goldream." 1 point win on each

 

"...take a punt on the complete outsider Under The Phone @ 20/1. Robin Dickin’s gelding is lightly raced for a 9-y-o and can be forgiven he last run after the best part of two years off the track. A previous course winner he returns on a lower mark than for his last chase win. This isn’t a great race and at that price he’s worth an each-way bet."  3rd 11/2

"Euxton Lane has a bit to find with De Rasher Counter but is more progressive . A winner last time out, he was clearly up against it taking on Global Citizen the time before that and can continue his improvement here with a further step-up in trip - 23 points win" 

WON 2/1

 

"Members were advised to back Balko Des Flos e/w at 12/1 ante-post - if you did you now have e/w 3 places with a maximum 7 runners. If you didn't, I'd suggest waiting for confirmation that Douvan is out [14/1 in revised market]." 

WON 8/1

 

"Portrait King... as we saw with the first and second in the Welsh National, teenagers cannot be written off in these marathon tests. I think he has at least an each-way chance and suggest a place bet" " 3rd 33/1
