Today’s free tip is as follows:

Horse: Laieth

Time: 5.10 Wolverhampton

Current Odds: 11/10

With normal improvement for his run last time, my selection should be too good for his rivals, Escalator is possibly his main threat.  But I think on what was a promising first run Laieth can win today, the race he was fourth in has seen a winner from it already ( the second won next time).

Nice winner yesterday with Saxon Warrior winning at Doncaster , it was also the horse that broke the record for Aiden O’Brian with Group 1 winners in a season, with it being win number 26 of Group 1 races. Fantastic achievement for an excellent trainer.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse:  Global Citizen

Time: 12:40 Aintree

Current Odds: 3/1

This horse won his point to point before running in a bumper recently, he won well in that on fairly quick ground, the time was good and although possibly not a strong race, he won well.  In his first run over hurdles today, he takes on some potentially nice types, but with his recent win will be fit and will be fine on the ground.

Of his rivals, Eniscoffey Oscar won the big bumper last season at Aintree, he ran ok last time on his hurdle debut, so has a chance of being in the mix today.  On The Blind Side could be a useful sort as well, he won his point to point, then was sold for over 200,000 to new owners and has joined a top stable, he is favourite and must be well respected, it will be a good race to watch.

Today’s free tip is as follows:

Horse: Saxon Warrior

Time: 3:25 Doncaster

Current Odds:6/4

In a very competitive race, this horse who won well last time, is the choice of Ryan Moore and should act ok on the ground.  He is short in the betting, but will be hard to beat.  Of his rivals Roaring Lion keeps winning and is a bit of value at 9/1, he is possibly the horse with a lot more to come. A big run can also be expected from Verbal Dexterity, he is from a strong stable.

Todays free tip is as follows:

Horse: Golden Birthday

Time: 4.10 Doncaster

Current Odds: 2/1

 

Seeking a hat trick today, Golden Birthday has won well on both his starts on the flat, he is a more than useful hurdler, but I think while he keeps winning on the level he will stay on the flat until the end of the season. Fran Berry has won on him twice, so knows him well, he does like decent ground (currently good) so lot of positives for another win today.  Of his rivals Key Bid was disappointing last time, and could well of reached his mark with the handicapper.  Great Sound is the possible main threat I think, he got bogged down last time in deep ground, before that he won well, with  first time cheekpieces today he is the one I fear most.  I will likely have a saver bet on him as he is 5/2 without the fav ! (Betfair).

Good winner yesterday with Dynamic backed at 9/2, today I have gone for  another each way bet today,  as quite decent odds on offer.

Todays Free Tip is as follows:

Horse: Umaimah

Time: 6.45 Chelmsford

Current Odds 8/1 EW

This filly ran a promising race on debut (grass), it was at Newmarket with two very useful fillies finishing first and second that day,  she was quite low in the betting that day.  She is bred to go on the all weather surface judging her pedigree, so I think will be ok on todays surface.  A lot of her rivals are inexperienced, so with the race she has had, it will help my selection.  Her slight negative is stall 10, but the favourite Bath And Tennis is drawn 13, so it will be harder for her, she won ok last time at Kempton but will need to step up a fair bit to defy a penalty against some potentially nice fillies.

25 October 2017

Few showers around, although the ground at Newmarket is described as good at the moment.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Dynamic

Time: 3.30 Newmarket

Current Odds: 9/2 EW

I backed this filly last time when she ran a fair race, she is lightly raced so is clearly a bit delicate to train.  I just thought she is worth a bet EW, the race is quite open.  I like the jockey and think there is a bit more to come from this filly.  Her rivals are pretty closely matched, Clearly is talented and was in front of Dynamic the last time they met, she has not looked to be totally genuine to me, with blinkers added today she could  well be dangerous.  I am unconvinced Song Maker has an ideal trip, she won at Chester (10f), and has ran well on the all weather since over shorter trip’s.  Chester is the complete opposite from Newmarket as lots of turns seemed to suit her when she won.

 

24 October 2017

Todays Free Tip is as follows:

Horse: Big Kitten

Time: 2.40 Newcasltle

Current Odds: 7/4

This horse was very green on debut at Beverley recently when beaten a neck.  The horse that was third at Beverley won recently at York, so the race has some substance to it.  He should be fine on the switch to Tapeta today, judging by his pedigree.  His main rival I think is Moqarrar, who has ran well on his two starts, his last run was on the All weather at Kempton, he was beaten that day by a useful horse, so no disgrace in being second that day, hopefully my selection will be too strong in the finish today.   Jockey Joe Fanning is a regular rider at Newcastle and knows the track well, the straight course needs good judgement from the saddle, as your horse has to stay the trip well.

23 October 2017

Today is quite difficult, at this time of year I try and edge more towards the National Hunt racing, horses off the flat can lose their form, and need a rest.  Its easy to back something,  that is past its best form.

I could update with something later, but I am not seeing anything as yet, that looks great value as a bet !
