Another good winner yesterday, Nathalie was backed heavily from 5/6 to 1/2 before winning cosily at Thirsk.
Todays Free Tip is as follows:
Current Odds: 5/2
Wensley won well last time out at Pontefract, he has a 7lb penalty for that win, but I think this horse can win again. The stiff track will suit I think, although this horse has plenty of pace, Kyllachy Dragon has been backed into second favourite, and could be the main threat, although there are a couple of good stables with horses that have not seen a racecourse yet, they will have to be well tuned and useful to beat Wensley, who I think will have too many guns for his rivals.
Todays Free Tip as follows:
Time: 3.00 Thirsk
Current Odds: 5/6
Although short odds, this filly sets quite a decent standard for what looks an average maiden. She ran well last time, to a filly rated 77, so I think today she will be too good for her rivals, Saniyaat will probably improve for the extra 2f today, she looks the main rival, but the rest who have raced are nothing special on known form.
I have nothing solid today, I do think Don’t Give Up 7.10 Windsor was unlucky not to win last time, could well win tonight, although very likely I will watch rather than have a bet, as it is a very competitive race. So I am just watching today at the moment.
Nothing solid today that I will be backing, just hoping that Manchester United can get a good start by beating West Ham later !
Lot of rain at Haydock, I have not had a bet, my selection runs but I am leaving and watching !
Another nice winner yesterday Lake Volta was 6/4 when I advised to back him, heavily backed into 4/6 ! Won by over 4L.
Today is what I always consider the most difficult, Saturdays have so many meetings, that makes it tough. However there are a few horses I think have good chances of winning.
Todays Free Tip as follows:
Time: 2.30 Haydock
Current Odds: (11/2 Each Way)
This horse won well last time at Sandown, That was a Group 3 race. The slight concern is that the ground is on the softer side than he has ran on before, (if it pours at Haydock don’t back) He has also a big danger in Laraaib, who I will have a saver bet on as well. I just think at 11/2 Autocratic is good value each way, hopefully it stays dry across the UK today.
Nice winner yesterday with Entangling obliging at 10/11 returned.
Todays Free tipis as follows:
Horse: Lake Volta
Time: 2.10 Brighton
Current Odds: 6/4
Lake Volta ran a good race on debut, he was only 4L off the winner, with marked improvement for that experience he can win today. His rivals are quite exposed, Indian Warrior is probably the main danger, but has had a few chances, and I think will not be good enough again today. With Sylvestre De Sousa riding great at present, I think Lake Volta will win.
Plenty of rain has made testing conditions today at most tracks.
Todays Free tip as follows;
Time: 3.10 Yarmouth
Current Odds: Evens
This horse has form on a soft surface, he ran well last time out, finishing 2nd after coming from a long way back in that race, today with a few withdrawn runners, the field is small, so hopefully he will be ridden a bit closer to the leaders. It is hard to come from off the ‘pace’ when the ground is soft, you have to be riding a very good horse or the leaders have gone too quick under testing conditions. And will fold in the latter stages.
Entangling is with a decent trainer, should still be improving, and his jockey is riding full of confidence, so I think he can handle the soft ground and win.
Lots of rain around in the UK. Bet with caution, unless you know that they have proven form on soft ground. I am not tipping anything today at the moment, I do think Kohinur 7.35 Kempton will win, but is currently 1/2 ! So I will watch rather than get involved.
Lot of good racing over the weekend coming up, hope the rain does not keep pouring to make ground very testing. At Ascot on Saturday it is the Shergar cup meeting, Always good to see jockeys from all over the world riding at this meeting, I see Hayley Turner is going to ride there, she has made a hell of a lot of comebacks !
Lot of rain at all turf meetings today. I did think of having an interest on a horse at Nottingham, but even though it has won on soft ground, it looks heavy and raining, so will watch, a few tomorrow worth looking at, ground conditions being ok!
