ROYAL ASCOT

ROYAL ASCOT

Well, Royal Ascot looms  next week and it looks a great card over the five days.

Our Derby meeting tips yielded 1 winner at 6/1 (advised price) in ENABLE  with a great win in The Oaks and a close up fourth in The Derby with EMINENT who was rather unlucky when squeezed for room in the last 100 yards. Never mind, we still had a profit and more if your bookmaker paid out on the fourth. EMINENT must be followed as he is knocking at the door and a big one is due.

Now to business.

The main bet is on Wednesday with LAUGH ALOUD & QEMAH in Duke of Cambridge Stakes. Both are 4/1 at the moment and a single on each will give 6/4……..BACK THEM BOTH!!

Others we fancy next week are as follows:

LADY AURELIA  7/2    Tuesday

CHURCHILL        4/6    Tuesday

DE BRUYNE HORSE   EW 8/1 Tuesday

BIG ORANGE EW  12/1 Thursday

CARAVAGGIO 5/4  Friday

WINTER 7/10 Friday

THE TIN MAN 8/1 & BRANDO  16/1 both EW Saturday.

Good luck with these and don’t forget to review our ROLL UP page!

E seems to be the letter of the week with Epsom-Enable-Eminent – lets hope its excellent for you!!

 

 

 

EPSOM

01.06.2017

Well, last weekend delivered two winners in the Irish classics, Churchill & Winter and a non runner in Minding (injured). Both won very easily and we hope that you did the double and treble as we confidently recommended. Obviously, the double became a single and the treble became a double because of Minding’s non participation.

We are now at stages three and four this weekend of our own classics with the Oaks and Derby at Epsom.

This site is a big fan of Rhododendron but the price of 10/11 in the Oaks on Friday looks a tad short for such a competitive race so we suggest the following:

Two each way singles and an each way double

Enable – The Oaks

Eminent – The Derby

Both are around 6/1 and have great place claims as Enable scooted around Chester and Eminent ran well in the 2000 gns.

E seems to be the letter of the week with Epsom-Enable-Eminent – lets hope its excellent for you!!

Good luck and don’t forget to check our Roll up page. We won’t be hurried and think that we will start stage 1 at Royal Ascot unless a good thing crops up earlier.

One For Arthur 14/1

One For Arthur 14/1

12.04.17

Well, last week was a mixed bag. Out of our three national selections we gave the winner One For Arthur with The Last Samurai up there most of the way before weight told and Definitly Red very unlucky at Bechers when hampered…….his day will come. As we said last week you must have at least three selections to mitigate bad luck.

Of our other three selections, two were non runners and On The Fringe blundered at the chair…….we will give this brave horse one more chance as he has nothing to prove, perhaps it is age or he is missing Nina.

So, all in all, four runners with one winner at 14/1 makes a nice 11 point profit!

Back soon

Definitly Red

Definitly Red

 

Well, punters we know what it is this weekend don’t we, so no introductions and to the point.

One of the most wrongly spelt words in the dictionary is DEFINITELY, did you know that! Anyway, what we are alluding to is that our main selection in Saturday’s big one is Definitly Red.……spot it…..wonder how many will spell the horse’s name correctly/incorrectly when writing out their bets……get it! We fancy this one.

Also, one must have a minimum of at least three selections in the national otherwise it could be all over after the first so we recommend The Last Samurai & One for Arthur with just as much confidence of good runs.

There look to be some good Cheltenham winners ready to win again but also some placed ones and suggest that On the Fringe, that great hunter, will atone.

On Friday we like our old favourite Clyne 16/1 and also Golden Jeffrey 10/1 in the flat race.

A happy three days.

Cheltenham Fall Out-To the point

Cheltenham Fall Out-To the point

Well, and to the point, last week saw Cheltenham and nothing surprising because there were lots of surprises!

We aren’t big fans of Cheltenham these days, since they sold The Bula Hurdle down the river and it’s a rip off to punters in all aspects, it is best watched at home.

Anyway, the horses aren’t to blame……well you know what I mean Harry!

Unable to make our minds up we stuck to our previous Spring Fancies page which yielded a winner in Lets Dance 6/1 at the time, a third in Native River 8/1 and nowhere to be sighted Brain Power! We advised strongly to lay Yanworth but advised a bet on on the unplaced Master Blueyes and finally a win double with On the Fringe/Unowhatimeanharry both placed.

So, all in all, the 6/1 winner and the  Yanworth LAY got us out of gaol with a small profit.

The proper flat stuff and Aintree loom and we do like Aintree where, trust us, there will be rich pickings for all!

Watch this space!!

Cheltenham Fever

28.02.2017

Again nothing much of note this weekend as Cheltenham fever approaches.

The racing at Doncaster and Newbury looks too tough to call and the only ones we would fancy are old favourites The Last Samurai 5/1 and Yala Enki 10/1 both in The Grimthorpe at Donny.

The Thistlecrack saga has resurfaced with 3/1 non runner no bet quote as rumours abound that it may yet run? Ignore them for it WONT WIN if it runs…..its a LAY on the day if it does run.

Racing last weekend threw up Master Blueyes and if it runs in the Fred Winter or Triumph BACK it for it had Charlie Parcs beaten when that horse fell.

Back soon.

Thistlecrack

21.02.2017

The announcement today of the injury to Thistlecrack comes as no surprise to me.

Experience has taught me that.

I have seen, over the years, what happens to novices taking on experienced high class horses in the Gold Cup; put plainly, it knackers them up.

In Thistlecrack’s case it came before the Gold Cup, last month, against the legend Many Clouds.

I know that the horse is injured but it is too much of a coincidence after that tremendous duel which cost the winner its life.

Look at Coneygree, the recent winner of the Gold Cup and first novice to win it since Captain Christy in 1974; the horse isn’t the beast that it was. Captain Christy only lasted one more season although he did beat the likes of Pendil and Bula in two KG’s after. The running of the brilliant novice Drumadowney (finished 4th) finally convinced me of this theory.

Thistlecrack in the Gold Cup against the likes of Native River and Cue Card would have warranted a good LAY. The Many Clouds affair may well have done the horse a favour in giving the horse the rest of the season off, that is, of course, if he hasn’t already met his Waterloo!

This Saturday’s racing is difficult and no point wasting money for the sake of it.
Two short priced winners last week Cue Card/Yanworth was good enough for me out of the two selected although I consider Yanworth a lay in the Champion Hurdle.

Talking of Cheltenham an On The Fringe/Unowhatimeanharry double looks a great bet at 11/2.
