Saturdays best bets (king George day)

King George day at Ascot ,though disappointing turn out with only six runners, Workforce looks most likely winner, though an interesting race not betting race for me.plenty racing as usual on Saturday with six cards though just going concentrate on the one race the group three Princess Margaret stakes at Ascot.

6F GROUP 3 PRINCESS MARGARET STAKES ASCOT 2.40
SORAAYA: Easy winner on debut at Hamilton in 6f maiden race ,ran very good second last time in G2 Cherry Hinton at Newmarket behind Memory beaten under 1 Lengh after being badly hampered at start,that form has already been boosted by 5TH horse Lily Again winning Listed race at Sandown on Thursday ,looks open to plenty improvement after just the two starts.


Margot Did looks the obvious danger after only beaten head by Memory at Royal Ascot in Albany stakes and looks very closely matched with SORAAYA on form,though at prices SORAAYA looks better value at around 7-2.


SORAAYA 2.40 ASCOT 2PTS E-WAY @ 7-2 BET 365

summary of days bets

Trip the light in 8.00 York ,just about some's up every think at minute, commentator Mark Johnstone  reports after 3 furlongs  the saddle has slipped well forward on TRIP THE LIGHT and will do well to finish the race  (finished 5TH),then you think to yourself  " what else can go wrong"

Every bet at minute seems to be running terribly for one reason or another..The afternoon bet Alsace Lorraine never looked like winning finishing well beaten third ,probably blessing in disguise that LES FAZZANI was withdrawn from 7.30 ,though another 5PTS loss.

Fridays best bets

Slightly disappointing that Crying Lightening could only manage third yesterday after subject of huge gamble 5-1 into 5-2, just seemed to get going too late after being slowly away,in the end happy to get e-way money.

Friday's racing we have six meetings with the start of Ascot three day meeting and decent looking evening card at York.

8F LISTED STAKES ASCOT 3.20


ALSACE LORRAINE :Excellent 4TH last time in group 2 Windsor Forest stakes at Royal Ascot behind Strawberrydaiquiri and Spacious only beaten 4 lenghs..Won decent class 2 handicap over C/D at Ascot on seasonal reappearance of mark 92.This doesn't look the strongest of listed races and should take plenty beating for in form James Fanshawe


10F LISTED STAKES FILLIES & MARES YORK 7.30


LES FAZZANI:Tough and consistent mare who has excellent record in listed races winning 4 times.Not disgraced last time in G2 Lancashire Oaks finishing 4TH on fast ground.Drop back into listed company will suit.

12F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 4 YORK 8.00


TRIP THE LIGHT:Dual C/D winner at York, with good strike rate on turf ( 9 wins from 27 starts) won twice this season including class 3 handicap at Catterick, will appreciate the drop back into claiming company.

Thursdays best bets

Plenty racing on Thursday with six meetings,though with heavy showers forecast we can expect ground conditions to change.Sandown looks the best quality card with 2-Y-0  listed race and two class 3 handicaps.Going concentrate on Just the one race the listed contest 3.20 at Sandown.

7F 2-Y-0 LISTED STAKES SANDOWN 3.20


CRYING LIGHTENING :Landed Leicester maiden on debut over 5F ,showed improved form last time finishing good 6TH OF 22 (staying on well towards finish) in the 6F group 3 Albany stakes at Royal Ascot behind the very useful Memory.should improve stepping up to 7F.


The Richard Hannon trained Admirable Spirit looks the obvious danger after winning decent maiden at Newbury last time, though will need to show improvement to win this listed contest and at the prices CRYING LIGHTNING looks the fair value at 5-1 with Paddy Power.


CRYING LIGHTNING 3.20 SAND 1PT E-WAY @ 5-1 PADDY POWER.

Wednesday's Rain Rain Rain

Its going be very difficult day on Wednesday with so much rain about, Catterick have had 32mm rain overnight and with more rain forecast the ground is going be very testing.

Sandown and Leicester report good/firm ground though both cards are evening fixtures, and there's still plenty time for ground to change.With doubts about the ground conditions its not worth getting involved on Wednesday.We have some quality racing coming up starting on Friday with the start of Ascot's three day King George meeting and then next week the start of five day Glorious Goodwood meeting.

Blank Tuesday

Again poor start to the week with both bets on Monday running very poorly loss 5pts ,not sure what's gone wrong in July though figures don't lie (loss 33pts) so far this month ( 2 winners from 22 bets)

Over 12 month period these losing runs will happen , so not too concerned though need to establish why this has happened in July (normally very profitable month).

Tuesday's racing looks very average and nothing of interest.

Monday, July 19, 2010

Monday best bets

Typical Monday With four average looking cards though  there does look couple  interesting races and we have the two bets.

8F HANDICAP CLASS 5 WINDSOR 8.40
OUR DRAMA QUEEN :Improving 3-Y-0 filly ,second over C/D at the end of June only beaten head by Al Joza.Then went on to win 7F fillies handicap at Newbury last time after finding plenty trouble in running (had to wait for gap )well on top at finish.Up 7LB though looks open to plenty improvement, big chance.




10F HANDICAP CLASS 5 BEVERLEY 7.00
GENERAL TUFTO :Tough and consistent gelding won three times this season and dual C/D winner at Beverley,good third last time over C/D behind Pendragon after not getting clearest of runs( finished strongly ) should go well at decent odds.

summary of the weeks bets!!

The poor run continues on Sunday no winners from two bets,SHE'S OUR MARK looked bit unlucky could never get clear run,once in clear finished very strongly for third and would gone very close with clear run.No excuses for MEEZNAH had every chance though was totally outclassed by the impressive 8 lengh winner SNOW FAIRY who seems to be improving with every run and handled this softer ground really well.

THE WEEKS FIGURES:
4 BETS)0 WINNERS)LOSS 9 PTS)


OVERALL AFTER 24 WEEKS:
223 BETS)69 WINNERS)PROFIT 36.45 PTS)

Sundays best bets (Irish Oaks day)

Only the one meeting of interest on Sunday the Curragh stage very decent card which includes the Irish Oaks and interesting listed race.

12F IRISH OAKS GROUP ONE CURRAGH 3.40
MEEZNAH:Fast improving filly ran excellent second in the Epsom Oaks only beaten neck behind Snow Fairy and is fancied to reverse form with that rival on this stiffer track MEEZNAH looks more of stayer and this track will suit her far better than Epsom.The main danger could be Hibaayeb who showed a lot of improvement stepping up to 12F last time when impressive winner of Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot .

9F LISTED STAKES FILLIES&MARES CURRAGH  3.05
SHE'S OUR MARK:Tough and consistent mare ,won this race last year in good style beating Latin Love by 2 Lenghs ,has some useful form this season won listed race in April beating odds on favourite Fame and Glory ,and finished very good second behind Chinese White in early may ,has to concede weight all round though looks the class act here.

MEEZNAH 3.40 CURRAGH 2PT WIN @ 9-2 HILLS
SHE'S OUR MARK 3.05 CURRAGH 2PT WIN @ 5-1 LADB
