Harry the Spur

Harry the Spur

Hello all

Well we told you so last week that Limato was a CERT and so it proved, cantering in; hope that you got the 9/4 as advised.

Our other two selections Boundsy and Hyperfocus were non runners.

This Saturday we have the Ascot Festival with most of the season’s big guns out.

Order of St George would have been the tip but he was beaten in the stayers race last year presumably because of the Arc run which he ran in again when 4th recently.

Ribchester was a shock defeat in the Sussex so we will just watch that too.

It boils down to our old favourite Harry again in the sprint so the main bet is Harry Angel @ evens Ascot 2.00 pm Sat.

Perhaps a small 4 trebles and an acc on Order of St George, Ribchester, Cracksman and Harry Angel will produce a nice return at Ascot.

Give you something to watch!!

Happy viewing

LIMATO CERT

10.10.2017

 

Limato cert

Good evening.

Well last week we were  touched off by Roly Poly when Persuasive just failed to catch her, sorry but O’Brien is on a mission with Group One successes this season.

Looking forward to weekend we think that, provided the ground is good or better, Limato is a good thing at Newmarket on Friday. Get on at 9/4.

At York, on Saturday, we fancy both Hyperfocus 8/1 & Boundsy 16/1  in the Coral Sprint. Get on both.

Last week we referred to leg 3 of the Roll Up so please see the relevant page.

Happy days

Sun Chariot

Sun Chariot

 

Welcome all!

Last Sunday brought a dazzling performance from our darling Enable who demolished a top Arc field in a couple of strides. We have harked on about this horse since her win way back in May when she cantered around the Roodeye to win the Cheshire Oaks; she is unbeaten since,  winning the Oaks, Irish Oaks, King George, Yorkshire Oaks and Arc….all easily.  This is the female Frankel!! Only Allez France of the 1970’s has shown such brilliance in the fillies class at middle distance.

Our each way selection of Order of St George came 4th and Highland Reel a non runner.

In the Cambridgeshire our selection Thundering Blue was given too much to do and finished close up.

Talking about Highland Reel, the horse is due to run at Ascot on Saturday and is as big as 7/2 at current odds; I suspect due to all the weight it has to give, all round. It is still a fair price for such a multiple group 1 winner.
We also like Persuasive on Saturday in the Sun Chariot at Newmarket. With only two runs this season she has been got ready for the autumn and 3/1 is a tempting price although we always fear French raiders, in this case Qemah and Usherette. French strike rate in England is remarkable…a bit like their farmers ha ha.

We will be back for the big Newmarket and Ascot meetings on the 14th and 21st respectively but in the meantime keep your eye open for Leg no. 3 in our Roll Up as last week our selection was a non runner so the accumulator is still on. We suspect though that the selection will be Expert Eye in the Dewhurst on the 14th; we will  keep you posted.

Able Enable

 

Good Afternoon.

Last week was a no go with the Ayr Gold Cup meeting abandoned so nothing to report on that front.

The Arc is almost docking, again at Chantilly this year as was the case last  year whilst its regular port of Longchamp is being renovated.

We indicated last week that it was a cracking field and so it still is.

There are some great each way chances especially with Order of St George @ 11/1 (3rd last year)and Highland Reel @14/1 (2nd last year) but we must stay with wonder filly Enable.

This horse has beaten the lot this year and only the effects of being on the go all season may stop her. We said earlier in the season that she reminded us of Shergar when she won the Cheshire Oaks in May and she has not let us down. GO ENABLE GO!!

Also, keep your eye on the German horse Dschingis Secret @12/1 who is improving rapidly.

Winter’s participation is on hold at the moment and she may run in the Prix de l’Opera instead. Finally, for Arc day back both Limato @11/2 and Brando & 14/1 in the Prix de Foret, these are top sprinters.

For the Cambridgeshire on Saturday we suggest you stick with Thundering Blue @ 8/1 Each Way, the horse is on a roll.

Good luck, as usual.

Winter in Autumn

 

Well folks, last week yielded yet another winner for us in Capri (recommended at 4/1), winner of the St Leger. We suggested that you back both Capri and Stradivarius which also ran well in third.

Looking to this weekend we only fancy a small each way wager on Growl  at 16/1 in the Ayr Gold Cup, a punter’s nightmare although Brando did us a great favour in the race last year whilst carrying top weight!

The Arc, to be run at Chantilly again, is fast approaching and we will be back for that as we chew on an amazing field, in fact, we can’t recall a better one at this stage with the likes of wonder fillies Enable and Winter due to run along with Order of St George, Highland Reel, Ulysses, Capri, Jack Hobbs etc WOW…. what a race!!

Please don’t forget our Roll Up page for leg no.3

Back soon

A Leger Fiddle

A Leger Fiddle

 

Well, last weekend turned up trumps with Harry Angel scooting through the Haydock mud.

The result was never in doubt from leaving the stalls; total domination!

We have to go back to the days of Dayjur in 1990 to compare with that performance.

The Roll Up continued its good start with Order of St George romping home at the Curragh…….see the page.

On to this week and the St Leger meeting.

The cards look extremely tricky and the added factor of bad ground forecast we are leaving well alone, apart from the St Leger, the season’s last classic.

We have narrowed this down to two horses and suggest two win singles on O’Brien’s Capri 4/1 and Gosden’s Stradivarius 13/2.

As always, good luck and keep you eyes open for leg no.3 on the Roll Up,

Major Domo

Racing feast

Hello all.

This weekend stages the start of some high class racing, starting with the King George & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot and then breaking into next week with the fabulous Goodwood meeting settled high on the Sussex downs, overlooking the English Channel, a truly wonderful spectacle.

Looking at the King George it is hard to look past the wonder filly Enable….. she is in the form of her life and gets a healthy weight concession from the older horses. What tempts us though is the 5/1 offered for last year’s winner the prolific Group 1 winner Highland Reel. The horse must surely be placed, at least, and at these odds backing Each Way looks too good to miss. Perhaps a saver also on Enable would compliment.

A plethora of good things are down to run at Goodwood. These include Big Orange, Ribchester, Limato and Winter. In the cavalry charge that is the Stewards Cup we fancy Duke of Firenze Each Way of course at 33/1 having come a close 5th and unlucky in the race last year; with a decent draw and a bit more luck the horse should run well.

Keep checking this site for selection No.2 of the Roll Up.

Happy punting.
