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
So, we must admit that last week’s July Cup run of The Tin Man was a bit of a surprise! He wasn’t beaten by much, as it was a sprint, but he was beaten by horses he had recently thumped. The surprise was that he was not in the frame.
Caravaggio surrendered his unbeaten record in the race and it was no surprise, we fancied him as a lay. Brando, who we thought would run and tipped at Royal Ascot, ran a cracker in third at 28/1, after a fair lay off. He must not be missed on the run up to the end of the flat. In fact, it would come as no surprise to see him lump top weight and murder them all again in the Ayr Gold Cup!
Enable, another favourite of ours, romped the Irish Oaks but we were put off by the price and track. The filly is becoming a fair horse with three consecutive Oaks on her CV and we recall her Cheshire Oaks win which, on the day, reminded us slightly of Shergar’s win at Chester; let us see how she progresses.
We have looked at this weekend’s racing but Haydock and Newbury are not tipsters meat so we look forward to Goodwood and will be back next week with our selections unless before, we have a Roll Up selection.
