Nice winner yesterday with Blue Point winning at Ascot. My other selection was a non runner.
I saw that Jimmy Fortune has decided to retire, he has had a lot of injuries over the last number of months with his back, and has found it difficult to get back on some of his former rides since returning, possibly that has had something to do with him deciding to retire. He has been a very good jockey, riding over 1800 winners. Good luck to him with whatever he does next.
Todays Free Tip is as follows:
Horse: Some Reign
Time: 2.40 Kelso
Current Odds: 6/1 EW
This horse ran well in bumper races last season, is well regarded by connections and looks the type to do well over hurdles. Majority of the runners are running over obstacles for the first time, having ran in bumpers and on the flat. My selection ran well in a bumper last season when second at Kelso, so has experience of the track. The ground should be ok and at decent odds is a bit of value each way. Beyond the Clouds has probably the best form in bumpers, and will be tough to beat, he is just a bit narrow at 11/10 for me.
