Harry’s The Boy

Long time no see.

Sorry about the lack of tips lately, we all need holidays but now we are back. Hope that you all had a great summer. I nearly drowned in the Wenatchee River in the Cascades of the USA. Good, say some of you, I hear but never mind I’m here to annoy you with some bum tips!!

Saturday brings the big sprint at Haydock, a real cracker with two of our old favourites in Brando (won in France recently at 9/1) and The Tin Man. The problem here is that they come up against a rapidly improving 3-y-o in Harry Angel who has the beating of these in the Newmarket July Cup although The Tin Man didn’t really turn up that day and Brando (3rd) was back from a long lay off. That was the best  sprint field this season with all the usual suspects and we feel that Harry can only get better especially as he has impressive form at Haydock earlier in the season; get on at 9/4.

O’Brien has some good chances in Ireland this weekend with Churchill, Caravaggio, Winter, Order of St George and Gustav Klimt. We are also interested in the return of his smart horses Seventh Heaven and Rhododendron who have been under a cloud of late.

Anyway, good luck and see you all next week for the St Leger meeting!

Just to remind you, our Roll Up is back in action ……….see the page, please.

ps We did draw your attention to the potential of that fabulous filly ENABLE, after its run at Chester in May. Hope that you followed her in all her Group One wins!!

Cheltenham/National Trials

17.02.2017

Well you lucky punters, last Saturday’s  three tips supplied two winners and a third in the form of Tobefair and Native River with Clyne third. Not too bad really as Clyne ran really well with a big weight, away from his favoured track of Haydock. All three must be followed and strongly as they are all improving at a rapid pace.

Native River is my type of horse, makes the running and grinds them down just like Denman did. Clyne is a horse on a roll, a real trier but just short of top class, this horse is being saved for Aintree. Tobefair has defied the handicapper like none I have ever seen and when looking beaten finds more to make it look easy; a real enigma that deserves a big Cheltenham handicap win.

Now back to business  and this Saturday’s Cheltenham and Grand National trials range from difficult to fairly easy.

Yanworth should win at Wincanton and Cue Card at Ascot but the Haydock National trial poses a good think and is best left alone as all are in with a good chance  in the expected slog.

There’s nothing like being stood at the 2nd last on the exposed expanses of Haydock Park on a winter’s day, watching  and listening to the jockeys appear from up the straight, cajoling their mounts with “over me boy” as they urge them on, the atmosphere is quite eerie.  Anyway, that’s another story!

Good luck

BET FAIR CHASE

Gold Cup novice winner Coneygree makes his belated return from injury this week and given the quality of opposition we think that it is asking too much of this good horse and suggest that 2/1 is a lay on a demanding track such as Haydock.
