30 November 2017

Good day yesterday with both my tips winning.  Bon Papa drifted to 5/2, but was an easy winner and Court Liability managed to win over what was probably a trip that was a bit sharp for him, he has really good attitude, and battled gamely to win when looking only second best jumping the last !

Hopefully I can end November on a winner, another profitable month, Almost up to £4000 profit since starting in May if you have bet to a £100 stake, if I recommend each way it is £50 EW.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Strange Society

Time: 7:15 Newcastle

Current Odds: 13/8

This horse ran a good debut run at Chelmsford recently, too raw and inexperienced that day, he did well to finish third.  With improvement for that race, he can win today.  Ambient and Cirrus Minor look main rivals, both have ran their best race on debut, but slightly below par efforts on their next start.

Managed to find a winner yesterday, Tallow winning at Southwell.  She was backed in from evens to odds on.

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Court Liability

Time: 1.05 Hereford

Current Odds: 6/5

I like this horse, I backed him when he won last time,  and think he can win again today.  Of his rivals Stage Summit tries hurdles today, after winning a bumper, he will be well schooled,  and comes from a good stable.  Rasasee is another that has a chance on current form.

Horse: Bon Papa

Time: 1.50 Punchestown

Current Odds: 2/1

Although slight drift in the betting, this is a potentially useful chaser, he is the choice of Barry Geraghty who is retained by the owner, who has the main danger Stand Up And Fight in the race as well.  Bon Papa is a big horse, who has looked as though time and chasing would bring out the best in him.  I think he has a good chance of winning today.

Stand Up And Fight has good hurdle form and is a threat on his chasing debut.

28 November 2017

Todays free tip is as follows:

Horse: Lucarno Dancer

Time: 1.50 Sedgefield

Current Odds: 13/2 ew

In quite an open looking race, my selection won well recently, although she is penalised for that win, the opponents today are of similar ability as when winning at Hexham.  Todays jockey Calum Bewley rides again and knows this mare well, solid claims each way as I see it.  Of her opponents, probably top weight Handy Hollow,  who has travelled a long way today to try and win his first race,  has to be in the mix with a chance.  The rest are all closely matched on bare form shown so far.

Horse: Tallow

Time: 1.40 Southwell

Current Odds: Evens

In what looks a novice race that won’t be too hard to win, Tallow is unproven on Fibresand, but has won on slow ground on grass, you are never completely sure until they have ran on it, but this filly has highly likely trained on the fibresand gallop in Newmarket.  Her rivals that have ran, don’t look anything special, Consultant could be the biggest threat. Tallow can win this.

25 November 2017

Yesterdays fancy only got as far as the second fence before parting company with his rider, hopefully better today, on what I believe is always the hardest day to find winners with so much racing!

Todays free tip is as follows:

Horse: Palmers Hill

Time: 12.20 Ascot

Current odds: 5/2

This looks a good hurdle, with some promising horses. My selection won well last time and looks progressive.  Perfect Harmony has a good profile, and could be dangerous, Take to Heart owned by the Queen has also done very little wrong so far and is respected.

Possibly have something later, so watch for updated message.

Update:  4:50

I was hoping to have something this evening at Wolverhampton, the horse I was interested in runs in the 5:45, but it’s a tricky race to evaluate, Guvenors Choice will be right in the mix , the unraced horse of John Gosden is poorly drawn and has not been supported in the betting , it looks as though he may well need the experience,  so I’m watching with interest only.

 

24 November 2017

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Sizing Tennessee

Time: 1.00 Ascot

Current Odds: 7/4

In a small field , three of them are closely matched on form over hurdles.  My selection was unlucky not to win last time when falling two from home, that was over 3 miles, the drop back in trip to 2m 3f should not pose to many problems, he is a strong traveller and I think he has a good chance of winning today.  As mentioned two rivals  Dolkos and Sternrubin have decent form and the latter ran a good race last time when second.

Some good racing at Ascot today and some interesting races to watch, Michael Owen the former top footballer rides Calder Prince in the 12.15 Charity race, he looks a lot better on a football pitch than he does on horseback, on what I have seen of him riding, but hats off to him for giving it a try, hopefully he has a safe ride and enjoys it.

Nice winner yesterday at 6/1, Soldier In Action made all the running and won gamely last night.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Master Singer

Time: 2:20 Newcastle

Current Odds: 11/10

A short price but this horse won well last time, he was ridden by today’s jockey that day, so he knows him well.  A rise in his handicap mark for the recent win, but a few of his rivals have question marks.  Burcan was second last time in a claimer, he had a great chance that day at the weights, and still wasn’t quite up to it, it was a below par effort.  Diodorus could be more of a threat, recently bought out of a top stable, he won in Dundalk on his last start, but that was a long time ago, so has to prove himself for his new connections.

I could well update later with a horse tonight at Chelmsford, probably after 4pm.

Update : 6:35pm

Nothing tonight at Chelmsford.

22 November 2017

Good to get a winner yesterday at 7/4 with Occasionally Yours winning at Fakenham.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Soldier In Action

Time: 7:10 Kempton

Current Odds: 6/1,EW

This horse has top weight but rarely runs a bad race, he has a good each way chance for me tonight.  He ran well last time in a listed race, he should be a bit better tonight over the extra trip.  A few with chances of his rivals, Royal Reserve has been running consistently of late and Rock Steady has been lightly raced this year and should be fitter for his recent run on grass.

21 November 2017

Nice to get a winner yesterday, backed at around 4/9 , although short odds Tommy Silver won easily, and is a useful horse.

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Kassar

Time: 12:40 Lingfield

Current Odds: 5/4

Although carrying a penalty for his win recently, I think my selection can follow up. He likes the all weather surface and a few winners have come from the race he won.  Rhode Island looks the likely main threat, he ran ok on his debut, but needs a lot of improvement to win today.

At Fakenham in the 12:50 I think Occasionally Yours at around 7/4 will be hard to beat, only two rivals. He should win this seller.
