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.

July Cup

Good morning.

Well here we are with mid summer approaching and Royal Ascot seeming a life time ago.

We mentioned the Eclipse Stakes last week which is due to be run on Saturday but looking at the field we find it too open to choose. What we will say is that our old favourites from the Guineas, Eminent & Barney Roy have great chances and if we were to bet it would be on both of these giving a return of 6/4 at current prices of 4/1 each of them.

The big July meeting next week at Newmarket so don’t forget to have a peep.

We are also waiting for our 2nd Roll Up tip so keep checking.

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
