Bad Bad Bad Week

Can't remember worse week this year, NO WINNERS FROM 10 BETS and loss 23PTS.Thats put big dent into this years profit.(was +68.35PTS) (now + 45.45 PTS)




Newmarket has been horrendous for me this week, 6 BETS no winners over the three day's and Just two seconds and loss there of 15PTS. Its difficult to understand why I've done so bad this week at Newmarket ,as I seemed to be in good form having had three winning weeks in row?? (Big shock to me Newmarket normally a meeting I do particularly well at.)

I have Decided no point in chasing losses on Saturday, and with next weeks racing looking very average it seems good time to regroup and take short break.(Will be back in 10 days time on Monday 19TH July.)


THIS WEEKS FIGURES:

ON THE WEEK
10 BETS )0 WINNERS)LOSS 22.90 PTS


OVERALL AFTER 23 WEEKS
219 BETS)69 WINNERS)PROFIT 45.45 PTS)

Fridays best bets (July cup day)

Its been struggle to find winners at Newmarket this week  and again no luck on Thursday with 5.50pt loss ,very disappointing run from Spanish Moon who never really picked up in last two furlongs,not sure if it was the ground being to firm as most of his wins lately had been on softer ground though had won on good/firm twice before.

The other two bets ran OK without winning,Lord of the Stars finished second though well beaten by R.Hannon trained Casual Glimpse&Invincible Soul ran fair race in third behind Critical Moment without looking like winning.

On to Friday's racing July Cup day at Newmarket,plus meetings at York,Chester,Chepstow,Ascot&Newbury.Going concentrate on Newmarket & York and we have three bets.


JULY CUP 6F GROUP ONE NEWMARKET 3.10
FLEETING SPIRIT:Won this race last year beating Main Aim,good 4TH on seasonal reappearance  in Golden Jubilee at Royal Ascot behind Starspanglebanner beaten 2.5 Lenghs (drawn on wrong side track)trainer has reported she will improve for that run ,and can reverse form with Starspanglebanner.


2PTS E-WAY AT 4-1 BET365 (UNPLACED)


HANDICAP 12F CLASS 3 NEWMARKET 4.55
BAY WILLOW:Fast improving 3-Y-0 since being stepped up to 12F ,won maiden at Leicester in May,then ran excellent 4TH in King George V stakes handicap behind the useful Dandino.Bolted up in 43k handicap at Curragh last time can race under 6lb penalty here,still looks open to plenty of improvement.


3PTS WIN AT 2-1 BET365 (SECOND)


6F GROUP 3 FILLIES AND MARES YORK 2.45
SWISS DIVA:C/D winner at York ,winning twice last season in decent Handicaps ,showed improved form towards end last season finishing good 2ND behind Palace Moon in listed race at Newmarket ,very consistent filly only finished out first three once in 11 starts should go well at decent odds.

Thursdays best bets(Newmarket July festival day 2)

Three point loss on Wednesday after the only bet Lillie Langtry,could only manage a disappointing 5TH ,behind impressive winner Music Show ,hard to understand why she ran so poorly here after winning Coronation stakes at Royal Ascot when she had Music Show 4L behind??

On to day two of Newmarket July festival , with the highlight being group 2 Prince of Wales stakes & group two July stakes.

12F PRINCE WALES STAKES GROUP 2 NEWMARKET 3.10
SPANISH MOON:Top class performer ,won twice last season in France including Group one Grand Prix de Saint Cloud & Group two Prix Foy beating the useful Vision D'Etat.Decent third on seasonal reappearance at Meydan in Group one behind Dar Re Mi.(only beaten 1L),takes drop in class here into Group two company and should outclass this field.


4PTS WIN AT 15-8 BET365 ,HILLS. (UNPLACED)


6F CONDITION STAKES CLASS 2 NEWMARKET 3.45
LORD OF THE STARS:C/D winner in 6F maiden landing a gamble on July course beating the Paddyman by 1/2 Lengh ,form been boosted by second winning next time at Yarmouth by 8 Lenghs.Looks open to plenty of improvement and should go well at decent odds.

8F CONDITION STAKES CLASS 2 NEWMARKET 4.20
INVINCIBLE SOUL;Second on last three starts including very good second at Royal Ascot last time in Britannia stakes only beaten 1/2 Lengh behind Ransom Note,very consistent and should go well for in form R.Hannon

Wednesday's best bets (Newmarket July Festival)

Disappointing day on Tuesday with loss 5pts, both bets running poorly in particular Flora Trevelyan in listed race heavily backed from 13-8 into 4-6 , there looked no excuses simply not good enough (led over 1F out but was soon headed) and could only manage disappointing 4TH.

On to Wednesday's racing the start July festival at Newmarket with the highlight being the group one Falmouth stakes and group two Cherry Hinton stakes ,the other races on the card look very competitive including three very tough looking handicaps.Just going with the one bet in Falmouth stakes.

8F FALMOUTH STAKES GROUP ONE 3.10 NEWMARKET


LILLIE LANGTRY :Decent filly ,winning three times as 2-Y-0 ,though has shown far better form as 3-Y-0, finishing unlucky in running 5TH in Irish 1000 Guineas ,and then impressive winner of Coronation stakes at Royal Ascot (well on top at finish) ,still looks to be improving .


3PTS WIN AT 9-4 LADBROKES ,HILLS (UNPLACED)

Tuesday's best bets

Small loss on Monday 0.32pts with Classic Decent finishing second at Ripon,again running on to late,seems one them horses that runs well without winning.

Three flat cards on Tuesday including two dire AW cards at Wolverhampton and Southwell ,not sure why we need AW meetings during middle of turf season ?? Pontefract stages the only flat turf meeting, and this looks quite good card, which includes fillies & mares listed race and class 3 handicap.

5F HANDICAP CLASS 5 PONTEFRACT 3.30 


CARRIE'S MAGIC :Consistent filly ,winning maiden over 6F at Redcar in May,Good second last time in 6F class 4 handicap at Ayr behind Thrust Control (led just worn down late on ) drop back to stiff 5F will suit.


1PT E-WAY AT 9-2 BET365   ( UNPLACED )




8F LISTED RACE FILLIES & MARES PONTEFRACT 4.00


FLORA TREVELYAN :Impressive winner at Sandown in hot class 3, 8F handicap at end May beating Ithinkbest by 5L( Royal Ascot winner Invisible Man back in 4TH beaten 7L) that looks very strong form.This doesn't look the strongest of listed races and should be hard to beat.


3PTS WIN AT 13-8 BET365 ( UNPLACED )
