Lot of rain around the UK, so I’m going the safer route today. My selection yesterday ran good race to be second, they did have a bit of rain at Haydock, it is the big Group 1 Sprint on Saturday, highly likely soft ground conditions expected, hence the favourite Harry Angel is drifting, he was 5/4 early in the week, trading now at around 2/1-9/4 in places, I think I will watch rather than get involved.
Todays Free tip is as follows:
Horse: La La Land
Time: 6.20 Kempton
Current Odds: 13/2 each way
This colt ran well on turf on debut, he ran on well that day over 7f, he should be sharper today and stay the 1 mile fine. Apart from the favourite Roaring Lion, who won nicely at Newmarket recently, a lot of the runners are unraced. Roaring Lion is short odds at around evens, and will very likely improve a fair bit for his win, John Gosden’s horses are never fully tuned on debut, I just thought there was a bit more value each way with La La Land, as he receives 6lb from the favourite.
Mountain Hunter in the 8.20 Kempton is a horse of interest, he is unbeaten and has gone up by 9lb for his last win, but that may not stop him.
