The Tin Man
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.
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
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!
