ROLL UP ROLL UP
Nothing much of interest to us this weekend, again, maybe next weekend with the Imperial Cup. That Global Citizen looked a real flier at Kempton and may take his chance next week in the race.
In the meantime, we concentrate on LEG 6 of THE ROLL UP…….yes…… LEG 6. We are there already, as last Saturday produced our eleventh consecutive win. So please refer to the page.
See you soon
THE ROLL UP
Well, not a good start this year but plenty of time yet with more Cheltenham trials.
Last Saturday saw Bristol De Mai give a sketchy jumping display against the winner of the Cotswold, Definitly Red, an old favourite of ours, which would have been our selection for this year’s National, now depending on Gold Cup participation, when it would also have a sound each-way chance.
Wholestone shirked the issue when cantering up the Cheltenham hill to be then run out of it and finish second.
For this weekend’s racing, there is a fabulous meeting over two days at Leopardstown, The Dublin Festival with the usual suspects of Faughheen, Footpad and co. We think that Rhinestone in the Goffs flat race on Saturday is a great each way bet @5/1.
Good news though, the Roll Up is now at stage 3 after Apple’s Shakira facile win in leg No.2. Please go to the page for more news.
Back next week for The Betfair Hurdle (The Schweppes) at Newbury.
Christmas time is here and we have plenty of winners waiting but first we must highlight the fact that THE ROLL UP is at its sixth and final stage so please see the page as we have a selection.
Back to winners, firstly get on Singlefarmpayment at Ascot on Saturday, this horse has been so unlucky lately and is due, GET ON EW at 6/1.
The Long Walk Hurdle is a match we think between Unowhatimeanharry & Lil Rockerfeller..…get on both…..you will profit.
At Haydock we fancy old favourite and course specialist Clyne to make a successful chasing debut.
On Boxing Day at Kempton we see the King George between stablemates Might Bite 6/4 and Whisper 10/1, back the first to win and the latter EW.
In Ireland next Thursday a great double is Apples Jade 6/4 and Sizing John 9/4, both festival and recent winners.
Have a double on me!
ps we must mention the awful tragedy of Starchitect at Cheltenham on Saturday…..so sad ……as with Many Clouds, we will not forget them…EVER.
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.
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!!
