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.

The Tin Man

The Tin Man

Good afternoon.

Last week’s Eclipse result was no surprise as we felt that Cliffs Of Moyer was a poor priced favourite, although we do admit that it was rather unlucky in running. One of our tentative suggestions Barney Roy nearly pulled it off when beaten a nose when finishing late, that’s racing!

We have had a good hard look at Newmarket’s famous July course meeting and lots of Royal Ascot winners and close losers litter the cards.

Looking at Frontiersman on Thursday we have been put off by Stoute’s improving Poet’s Word so, after much analysis, we have decided that we will go for an old favourite of ours on Saturday in the July Cup, this being The Tin Man.

Caravaggio is hot favourite and unbeaten but he is meeting seasoned, older sprinters and we feel that “Tinny” named after that great jockey of yesteryear, the immortal Fred Archer, is great value at 6/1 EACH WAY. The horse has the beating of most of these apart from the unpreviously raced against 3-y-o favourite. We would much rather take the 6/1 each way and more or less be guaranteed a slight profit than the odds on of Caravaggio to win!

On the Roll Up front we were tempted with Enable in the Irish Oaks but have seen too many hotpots beaten at the Curragh so we will probably wait for Ribchester or Order of St George at the big Goodwood meeting soon.If anything suitable comes up before, for leg 2, we will give you ample notice.

So, please, watch this space.

Good afternoon!

Well, Royal Ascot did us proud last week with a plethora of winners, 7 from 9 selections including the Roll Up winner and two non runners in Laugh Aloud and Brando. Some good prices too including Big Orange recommended at 12/1 and The Tin Man at 8/1. We hope that you were on some of these tasty winners!

Ribchester at 11/10 got the Roll Up started again so watch that page daily although we generally target the classier races which are at major meetings.

In the meantime we are waiting for the Eclipse at Sandown and following that the Newmarket July meeting.

We have just started our Financial page so you could take a peep at those tips.

Remember, watch out for the 2nd selection of the Roll Up bet.

See you soon

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!

Lockinge Stakes

Lockinge Stakes

 

17.05.2017

Saturday sees the running of that good mile race, The Lockinge,  at Newbury.

We see this panning out between the two class horses & market leaders Ribchester and Galileo Gold.

Backing both, at current odds, will give you an even money winner  should one of them win, which we are CONFIDENT of.

Good luck

BRANDO

The flat is steadily releasing the big guns starting at Newmarket this week and sees the return of the sprinter BRANDO in the Abernant on Thursday.

BRANDO

The flat is steadily releasing the big guns starting at Newmarket this week and sees the return of the sprinter BRANDO in the Abernant on Thursday.

This horse progressed all last season culminating with a great win in the Ayr Gold Cup. We are a great fan of this horse and it WILL WIN on its seasonal debut.

The Scottish National dominates at weekend. This race is a lottery and best left alone.

Next week sees the Punchestown Festival and potential laps of honour for the likes of Un De Sceaux, Nichols Canyon and Sizing John. This looks like a decent small stake sporting treble.

Watch this space for the General Election.

Happy wagers

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
