2 January 2018

It was good to start the 2018 with a winner yesterday.  Yaltari winning at Exeter, he returned at 13/8 which was good.  Possibly a shade lucky as the main danger had got upsides him when it fell at the second last hurdle, but jumping is the name of the game !

I was a bit unlucky later as I did have a double as well as single bet on  Yaltari with the short priced favourite which rider Adam Wedge missed the third fence from home out when clear in the Novice Chase.  Not sure what he was thinking !

Todays Free tips are as follows:

Horse: Rivabodiva

Time: 1.00 Ayr

Current Odds: 10/1 Ew

It will be soft ground at Ayr today, Rivabodiva has won at the track on the soft, and her claiming rider has won on her before.  He claims 10lb off her back as he is riding for his boss today, so with a handy weight of 10st 5lb she can be a good each way bet in a fairly open race.  Of her rivals, the top weight Niceandeasy has won three races from three starts,he steps up to 3 miles today and could be quite well in off 117, but 12 stone on heavy ground is never easy, so I’m hoping my selection can win off her good racing weight.  Of  other rivals, Too Many Chiefs is a course and distance winner, and is respected with her rider also claiming a handy 5lb allowance.

 

Horse: First Order

Time: 5.40 Newcastle

Current Odds: 5/4

With no real form to go on as this horse is unraced.  I just think he can win this race.  He was expensive as a foal (300,000) and has been given time, he has been backed and the stables two year olds have had a lot of winners on debut during 2017.  Of rivals, Daltrey has not looked anything special in his two starts, Naval Officer could run well at decent odds, as he ran well last time when 4th, and was running on over 6f, todays 7f will be suitable.
