I am putting the tips on this evening as very little chance of the ground changing at Southwell, and Meydan in the UAE is not expecting rain.

Thursdays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Benbatl

Time:  3:05  Meydan

Current Odds: 11/10

This horse in genuine and a recent winner at the track.  He has beaten four of his rivals before, when he won last time.  He should improve for that run, and his jockey has won on him before.  I think he can follow up, and win this Group 2 event.

Of rivals, Bravo Zolo has been showing good form at the track, he possibly has his best form over 7f-1mile, although a winner over the 9f trip he tackles tomorrow, it was in a much easier grade. Earnshaw and Light The Lights are others with useful form, but need to improve to beat my selection.

Horse: Ray Purchase

Time: 2.40 Southwell

Current Odds: 6/5

A winner at the track, which is a big positive at Southwell, he was a good second recently, to a horse that won today, so the form has worked out.  He has a good chance of winning again.  Of rivals, Istanbul Pasha has fair form, but finished behind  Ray Purchase when racing against him at Southwell recently, he is possibly the one to beat again.  Shades Of Mist has shown ability to win at the track, he has a chance to be in the mix.

I will do an update around 3:45 pm with a horse in a later race of interest, I am just looking at some information.

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Vale Of Kent

Time: 4:40

Current Odds: 4/7

I think this horse will win.  Very useful first run, although short priced, he is one to put in a double with my next selection. It’s hard to see a real threat, Dubai Acclaim is capable of winning a race, but I can’t see him beating Vale Of Kent, Lumi is unraced, she is the unknown, it will be interesting to see if she gets any support in the betting.

Horse: Windsor Cross

Time:5:45

Current Odds: 6/5

I am putting Vale Of Kent in a double with this horse, it is then works out as just over a 5/2 bet.  Windsor Cross won well last time, he likes to bowl along and can win again, he wears a visor, but looks honest enough. Course form at Newcastle is a good trend, and he will hopefully make the running and not get caught. Of rivals, How Bizarre could be the main one to beat, he tries a synthetic surface today for the first time, he could improve for the switch off grass.  The British Lion has had a few chances, he may well find one or two too good again today.

Update:

Hopefully Senatus will be OK , pulled up in a flat race is never good, and I just heard on the Tv that he was being loaded into the horse ambulance , I don’t know if he got injured by the horse next to him in the stalls as it was thrashing around when it dislodged its jockey when refusing to jump out of the stalls.

I am not backing the horse at Lingfield i was looking at, as the ground is heavy ! More tomorrow.

 

30 January 2018

Nice winner on the updated message yesterday.  Technological was a very easy winner by 6L at Wolverhampton last night. Hopefully I can end the month on a high !

Todays Free Tip is as follows:

Horse: Senatus

Time: 1.40 Southwell

Current Odds: Evens

A course winner last time when winning cosily, my selection can follow up today under his 6lb penalty.  He has the same jockey today, and proven ability to handle the fibresand surface is a positive trend at Southwell.  Of rivals, Cousin Khee acts on the surface, he looks like the one to beat, he has been running better of late, and was second recently at the track, I just think he won’t be good enough to beat Senatus.

I will update a message around 1.45pm, as I like a horse running at Lingfield, more later.

 

29 January 2018

Update:  2.15 pm

Tossapenny got beat a nose, not having the rub of the green in photos at the moment !

I am backing Technological 7.00 Wolverhampton, currently 7/4.  Danzay could be the danger, he was below his best last time, if he runs to his best he is a threat, I just think Technological can win this, he slightly gave the race away last time when finishing second, hopefully he can put that experience to use and make amends today.

28 January 2018

Good winner today at Sedgefield, Blottos was a comfortable winner, he was backed and went off at 11/8, he was advised when 15/8.

I am putting the blog post on this evening , I will do an update around 2pm tomorrow as two horses in a later races are of interest, and may be worth a bet.

Mondays Free tip is as Follows:

Horse: Tossapenny

Time: 1.40 Hereford

Current Odds: 6/4

This horse was a good second last time out at Southwell.  He would of won with another few strides, that was over 2 miles.  He should be fine over the extra distance (almost 6f) and in a novice that could well have some future winners in it, I think this horse is difficult to oppose. New jockey tomorrow, but at least it is good replacement in Leighton Aspell.  Of rivals, Rambling Rector was a winner of a point to point, before a tame effort in a bumper, he can be expected to show more, Aptly Put has shown ability and could well be in the mix.

 

28 January 2018

Good winner yesterday with Maria’s Benefit showing she is a very game mare, she battled to win at Doncaster.  Native Arrow was beaten a nose last night at Kempton, I thought he had won when they went past the line,the winner who was 20/1 did well to rally near the line and just pip Native Arrow.

Today Fontwell has been called off, ground issues with all the rain fallen over the last week or so.

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Reverant Cust

Time: 1.10 Sedgefield

Current Odds: 100/30

This horse ran really well when second last time at Haydock, he came from a long way back, which was a really good effort in very soft ground.  He finished his race off well to be a very close second that day, hopefully his rider will be a bit handier today and with a front runner like Tonto’s Spirit in the field it may set the race up for my selection to finish off the race well to win. Other rival’s that are dangers are Black Art, a course and distance winner,  he comes here of a recent win, and The New Pharaoh  has a chance with a good claimer riding, taking 7lb off his big weight.

Horse: Blottos

Time: 2.10 Sedgefield

Current Odds: 15/8

This horse did well to win over shorter two runs ago, and  then ran well to be second at Catterick recently when a slow pace probably was not ideal. He has a good jockey riding today, and it looks as though this horse will progress from Catterick, and be hard to beat today. His main threat is Aaron Lad, he ran well last time and his trainer knows how to get one ready, he is a threat.

27 January 2018

Nice winner yesterday, Django Django obliging at Huntingdon, he was returned at 11/8, profit on the day.

Lot of good racing tomorrow, once again it looks as though another usual Saturday, very tough to pick winners.

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Maria’s Benefit

Time: 2.40 Doncaster

Current Odds: 5/6

The way this mare won last time, I have to back her.  She won by a very wide margin, she is really improving and will be tough to beat.  I am hoping the ground will not get very soft, as although she has won on soft, she does not want it heavy.  Of rivals, Dame Rose ran no race last time, not sure what was wrong, but she is a talented mare who is a threat on her best form. Irish Roe has been running well and is also one to be wary of.

Horse : Native Arrow

Time: 5.45 Kempton

Current Odds: 11/8

This horse was very green on debut when 4th over 1m 2f, he can only progress and todays extra 2f should be much better for this colt.  He has to find improvement to beat Shakour today, as he was just in front of him last time they met. With Adam Kirby in the saddle , my selection can take this race.  Pilgrim Soul, is open to progress, and has a staying pedigree, she should appreciate the 12 furlongs.

 

 

26 January 2018

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Django Django

Time: 1.35 Huntingdon

Current Odds: 6/4

In quite a big field of novices, its hard to make a case for lots of them.  My selection ran a really good race last time when second, he will like the ground, his jockey rode him last time and is good value for his 7lb claim.  Of rivals, The Blues Master has shown decent form last time, he was third to a useful horse, he will cope with the ground, but may well be better when the ground is faster.  Ar Mest has talent, but was too free last time on his hurdle debut, if he relaxes he has a chance, as he showed enough on his second run when third in a bumper.

Horse: Wiff Waff

Time: 7:45 Kempton

Current Odds: 11/10

In this small field, my selection is taken to complete the hat trick of wins.  He races under a penalty for an easy win last time, Hopefully Sir Hector will set the pace and my selection can finish late to win . Wiff Waff likes 5f and his jockey won on him two runs ago.
