Able Enable

 

Good Afternoon.

Last week was a no go with the Ayr Gold Cup meeting abandoned so nothing to report on that front.

The Arc is almost docking, again at Chantilly this year as was the case last  year whilst its regular port of Longchamp is being renovated.

We indicated last week that it was a cracking field and so it still is.

There are some great each way chances especially with Order of St George @ 11/1 (3rd last year)and Highland Reel @14/1 (2nd last year) but we must stay with wonder filly Enable.

This horse has beaten the lot this year and only the effects of being on the go all season may stop her. We said earlier in the season that she reminded us of Shergar when she won the Cheshire Oaks in May and she has not let us down. GO ENABLE GO!!

Also, keep your eye on the German horse Dschingis Secret @12/1 who is improving rapidly.

Winter’s participation is on hold at the moment and she may run in the Prix de l’Opera instead. Finally, for Arc day back both Limato @11/2 and Brando & 14/1 in the Prix de Foret, these are top sprinters.

For the Cambridgeshire on Saturday we suggest you stick with Thundering Blue @ 8/1 Each Way, the horse is on a roll.

Good luck, as usual.

Winter in Autumn

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

Back soon

Hello all.

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.

Happy punting.

The Tin Man

The Tin Man

 

12.07.2017

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

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.

ROYAL ASCOT

ROYAL ASCOT

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!

One For Arthur 14/1

One For Arthur 14/1

12.04.17

Well, last week was a mixed bag. Out of our three national selections we gave the winner One For Arthur with The Last Samurai up there most of the way before weight told and Definitly Red very unlucky at Bechers when hampered…….his day will come. As we said last week you must have at least three selections to mitigate bad luck.

Of our other three selections, two were non runners and On The Fringe blundered at the chair…….we will give this brave horse one more chance as he has nothing to prove, perhaps it is age or he is missing Nina.

So, all in all, four runners with one winner at 14/1 makes a nice 11 point profit!
