The Ladbroke Trophy aka The Hennessy
Well last week brought a small profit with our nap Bristol De Mai destroying the field in the Betfair Chase and our each way double yielding a little profit too.
I have been going to Haydock Park for many, many years now and I can tell you that Bristol’s performance was the best I have ever seen by a jump horse there. Like I said in the last post, give him soft at Cheltenham and the Gold Cup is his for the taking.
Now to business.
This Saturday sees the revamped Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury and we must advise a wager on Singlefarmpayment who looks made for the race. The horse was a good second on his seasonal debut at Cheltenham where he was also just touched off by a nose at the festival. GET ON EW at 7/1.
Now please go to the Roll Up page for another selection.
Have a good weekend folks.
The Major is back!!
Good afternoon all. Well we gave racing a miss for a while for things to settle whilst the jump season develops, that is, apart from good news from the Roll Up page;please click on tab above.
Yes, the Roll Up is at stage four !!
Back to business for the weekend.
It’s the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday which looks a match between the up and coming mudlark Bristol De Mai and the ever popular Cue Card.
We lean towards Bristol for the reasons that he will get the ground, his recent Charlie Hall win was top class and Cue Card is unfortunately, “getting on.”
Bristol De Mai will win a Gold Cup one day if it ever turns up heavy at Cheltenham, he is only six. He won at Haydock on soft in January so get on at 11/8.
We also fancy course specialist Clyne @ 11/2 –1.50 Haydock and Vintage Clouds @ 11/2 –3.35 Haydock.
We suggest two win singles and an each way double.
Remember, watch out for leg 4 of the Roll Up.
Bet Victor Gold Cup
Last week’s Breeders Cup was a non affair for us at Del Mar.
Our selections Ulysses and Arrogate were a non runner and a flop respectively.
Only Rhododendron ran soundly being placed from a terrible draw……she was unlucky.
Nothing much doing this weekend apart from the Roll Up..…see page.
We will be back next week with the Bet Victor Gold Cup at Cheltenham when our current fancies of Kylemore Lough and Cloudy Dream will be assessed.
See you next week folks.
