31 August 2017

A nice winner last night, Mudallel got up late to win at Kempton, I think that he could well win again, he should not get too much of a rise in weight from the handicapper for his win.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Piedita

Time: 2.20 Chelmsford City

Current Odds: 5/4

This improving filly can win for the third time today, she obviously does not want the ground too firm judging on her form, and has ran ok on her only run on an all weather surface.  I am tempted at odds against but will leave her if she goes to odds on.

Nice winner yesterday at Epsom, Dourado won a shade cosily, backed into 6/4 returned, given a good ride by David Probert, he is a jockey that makes very few errors and one that is slightly underrated.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Mudallel

Time: 6.25 Kempton

Current Odds: 7/4

A recent course winner, winning easily that day and risen 8lb for that win, may not be enough to stop this gelding from winning again.  He may be well in , and I think he can win again.

29 August 2017

Today’s free tip is as follows:

Horse: Dourado

Time: 5.20 Epsom

Current Odds: 7/4

Having won last time at this track,  Dourado is proven on this tricky track.  He has been raised only 2lb for that win 26 days ago, not enough I do not think to stop him winning again, he is ridden again today by the very good David Probert, who won on him last time, so a lot of boxes are ticked, Lightoller has been running well at present, and is likely the main threat.

28 August 2017

Today’s free tip is as follows:

Horse: Bagad Bihoue

Time: 3.30 Cartmel

Current Odds: 5/4

As long as the rain stays away from Cartmel, I think this horse will be too good for his rivals.  He has impressed in his 4 starts over fences, looks quite well in off his current mark, I can see him winning well, but no more rain needed!

26 August 2017

Hardest day of the week I always think, finding winners with so much racing is not easy.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Nebo

Time: 3.00 York

Current Odds: 5/1 Each way

This colt has been knocking at the door in two solid Group 2 runs recently, finishing second in both, he looks very honest and at 5/1 I think he has a good chance, it is an open race, the favourite Headway is coming into the race off a below par effort last time, although he was given a very strange ride that day, so maybe best to ignore it.  I do think that lots have chances in this race, but have liked Nebo on his consistent form at Group 2 level so far, the ground drying will not be a problem.

The big Handicap the Ebor is very open this year, Magic Circle won well on Wednesday over 2 miles, and should run well again as he has won twice at York before, drop to 1m 6f today should not be major issue.

Big money fight in Las Vegas in early hours UK time tomorrow, between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, would be nice to see the Irishman win, but I think Mayweather will be too smart in a boxing match to lose, although McGregor has a punchers chance !

25 August 2017

Good winner yesterday, Threading winning at 9/2 at York.

Todays free tip is as follows:

Horse: Fastar

Time: 2.40 Newmarket

Current Odds: 11/2 (each way)

At 11/2 it makes sense to back this horse each way, he has been running well since a recent gelding operation.  With the assistance of Jimmy Fortune in the saddle today, I think this horse has a really decent chance, a few dangers, some going up in grade, the horse at the bottom end of this handicap Slow To Hand is going up in grade for a recent win at Yarmouth, he is a likely danger.

 

24 August 2017

Some good racing yesterday, York had some really good races, Cracksman was impressive as was Ulysses in winning the Juddmonte International.  I didn’t get involved in the end, today has some good races that look difficult to try and find a winner !

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Threading

Time: 2.25 York

Current Odds: 9/2 Each Way

Competitive race but this filly won well at Good wood recently,  today is a step up in class, but this well bred filly should improve and has a great each way chance, with a bit of luck she can win from some decent fillies. At 9/2 it makes sense to go each way.

 

23 August 2017

Some really good racing today at York.  The Group 1 Juddmonte Intrnational Stakes 3:35 looks like it will be a great race, who wins, I would not like to say, Barney Roy has been improving all year, and if I was having a bet, he would be the one I would favour, but it’s too close to call.  Churchill had looked very special until his below par  run at Royal Ascot, when only 4th to Barney Roy, it is one to watch and enjoy. I’m hoping to watch as I am currently on holiday in Bratislava.

I will watch the 5.10 Bath and may back Quay Point each way in play, if it gets chance to make the running, ridden far too aggressively last time, and not allowed to dictate matters, faded in the closing stages.  I still think this horse is quite well handicapped, but is an in running bet for me, as 11/1 is ok. But needs to get the lead!

22 August 2017

The horse I liked yesterday No I’m Easy at Thirsk won by a neck, he was supported in the betting from 2/1 to around 13/8.  The favourite of Godolphin’s ran green, as I thought he might, he may be worth a look next time.

Today’s free tip is as follows:

Horse: Al Ozzdi

Time: 2.30 Brighton

Current Odds: 2/1

Being a recent winner on such a tricky track like Brighton can give this horse a slight edge, I think he can defy his penalty for that win, and win again today.  As long as no more rain falls, as it was good to firm when he won last time.

Some good racing to come this week, starting tomorrow at York, with some really competitive races with big prize money at stake.
