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.
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 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.
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!
Well, punters we know what it is this weekend don’t we, so no introductions and to the point.
One of the most wrongly spelt words in the dictionary is DEFINITELY, did you know that! Anyway, what we are alluding to is that our main selection in Saturday’s big one is Definitly Red.……spot it…..wonder how many will spell the horse’s name correctly/incorrectly when writing out their bets……get it! We fancy this one.
Also, one must have a minimum of at least three selections in the national otherwise it could be all over after the first so we recommend The Last Samurai & One for Arthur with just as much confidence of good runs.
There look to be some good Cheltenham winners ready to win again but also some placed ones and suggest that On the Fringe, that great hunter, will atone.
On Friday we like our old favourite Clyne 16/1 and also Golden Jeffrey 10/1 in the flat race.
A happy three days.
Cheltenham Fall Out-To the point
Well, and to the point, last week saw Cheltenham and nothing surprising because there were lots of surprises!
We aren’t big fans of Cheltenham these days, since they sold The Bula Hurdle down the river and it’s a rip off to punters in all aspects, it is best watched at home.
Anyway, the horses aren’t to blame……well you know what I mean Harry!
Unable to make our minds up we stuck to our previous Spring Fancies page which yielded a winner in Lets Dance 6/1 at the time, a third in Native River 8/1 and nowhere to be sighted Brain Power! We advised strongly to lay Yanworth but advised a bet on on the unplaced Master Blueyes and finally a win double with On the Fringe/Unowhatimeanharry both placed.
So, all in all, the 6/1 winner and the Yanworth LAY got us out of gaol with a small profit.
The proper flat stuff and Aintree loom and we do like Aintree where, trust us, there will be rich pickings for all!
