Hello folks

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.

Stay cool.

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.

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!
