The Ladbroke Trophy aka The Hennessy
Well last week brought a small profit with our nap Bristol De Mai destroying the field in the Betfair Chase and our each way double yielding a little profit too.
I have been going to Haydock Park for many, many years now and I can tell you that Bristol’s performance was the best I have ever seen by a jump horse there. Like I said in the last post, give him soft at Cheltenham and the Gold Cup is his for the taking.
Now to business.
This Saturday sees the revamped Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury and we must advise a wager on Singlefarmpayment who looks made for the race. The horse was a good second on his seasonal debut at Cheltenham where he was also just touched off by a nose at the festival. GET ON EW at 7/1.
Now please go to the Roll Up page for another selection.
Have a good weekend folks.
The Major is back!!
Good afternoon all. Well we gave racing a miss for a while for things to settle whilst the jump season develops, that is, apart from good news from the Roll Up page;please click on tab above.
Yes, the Roll Up is at stage four !!
Back to business for the weekend.
It’s the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday which looks a match between the up and coming mudlark Bristol De Mai and the ever popular Cue Card.
We lean towards Bristol for the reasons that he will get the ground, his recent Charlie Hall win was top class and Cue Card is unfortunately, “getting on.”
Bristol De Mai will win a Gold Cup one day if it ever turns up heavy at Cheltenham, he is only six. He won at Haydock on soft in January so get on at 11/8.
We also fancy course specialist Clyne @ 11/2 –1.50 Haydock and Vintage Clouds @ 11/2 –3.35 Haydock.
We suggest two win singles and an each way double.
Remember, watch out for leg 4 of the Roll Up.
Bet Victor Gold Cup
Last week’s Breeders Cup was a non affair for us at Del Mar.
Our selections Ulysses and Arrogate were a non runner and a flop respectively.
Only Rhododendron ran soundly being placed from a terrible draw……she was unlucky.
Nothing much doing this weekend apart from the Roll Up..…see page.
We will be back next week with the Bet Victor Gold Cup at Cheltenham when our current fancies of Kylemore Lough and Cloudy Dream will be assessed.
See you next week folks.
Last week our only selection Singlefarmpayment ran a blinder on its seasonal debut finishing 2nd looking all over the winner two out, denied by a front running, tenacious and locally trained Cogry. This was a great run giving the winner 13lb, after a seven month lay off! The horse must be backed in the Hennessy.
Well folks its that time of year……yes it’s the Breeders Cup.
This year the action takes place at Del Mar on the west coast so the racing will be late night stuff……love it.
We fancy Stoute’s Ulysses 11/4 in the Breeders Cup Turf and Arrogate 11/4 to defend his crown in the Classic.
Other old favourite Rhododendron is also a strong fancy for her selected race.
Have a successful weekend.
Please see our Roll Up and Financial pages for important news!
Good evening all.
Sorry about last Saturday. We should have stuck to our original selection of Order of St George but were swayed by Harry Angel who looked invincible;not sure he likes Ascot! Our four trebles yielded two winners & two placed which wasn’t quite good enough.
On the Roll Up front we have now selected two consecutive non runners for leg 3 but please be patient, we have a runner lined up for next week’s Breeders Cup!
On the home front this weekend we don’t really fancy anything apart from Singlefarmpayment at Cheltenham, if it runs! Back it each way as it will be its seasonal debut. This horse was very unlucky at the festival when touched off on the line and beaten a nose.
Keep well and see you next week in America!!
Harry the Spur
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!!
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.
