Friday's summary and Saturdays best bets

 FRIDAYS SUMMARY  :

Bitterly disappointing performance from SECOND ENCORE who could only manage 6TH place in 5 furlong claiming stakes ,well supported in market 3-1 into 9-4 ,though after racing in second place was soon in trouble and looked well beaten at half-way.Not sure what happened there but SECOND ENCORE  ran no kind of race.

Bit of strange result with 22-1 outsider LADY PRODEE  coming from last to first and winning in four way photo finish.LOSS £200.00 - 2.00 PTS

Its been bit of sticky patch over the last two weeks and six bets without winner,though its been poor run of results, I'm not that concerned these losing runs will always happen over the course of the season.The main goal as always long term profits.

On to Saturday we have two flat cards on the poly track at Lingfield and evening card at Wolverhampton.There's couple interesting races and again I will be going for each-way double bet.

1 MILE CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 LINGFIELD 12.30


GREEN EARTH :In good form in recent weeks finishing second twice here at Lingfield and winning  1 Mile claimer at Kempton  beating Pastello by 1 lengh.Appeared not too quite get home last time when finishing second over 1 Mile 2f here last time.The return to 1 Mile will suit and should go well.




1 MILE 1F 103YDS MAIDEN STAKES CLASS 5 WOLVERHAMPTON 8.50 


HALFSIN : Two highly promising runs in decent maidens at kempton & Newmarket finishing second both times over 1 mile ,slightly disappointing last time when only third at Nottingham ,though appeared unsuited by very soft ground.The return to poly track and step up in trip will suit better and should go well for back to form Marco Botti .

Fridays best bets

 SUMMARY  OF THURSDAYS BET  :

No excuses for IMPREMIS TAGULA who was beaten fair and square by MATSUNOSUKE who always travelled like the winner and won easily by 1.25 lenghs ,the only surprise was the big drift in betting MATSUNOSUKE going off very big price at 3-1,double his early morning price.IMPREMIS TAGULA went off 11-4 jt fav, battled on to snatch 2ND on the line .LOSS £40.00 - 0.40 PTS

Friday we have two flat cards Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,again we go to Wolverhampton for the day's only bet in 5 furlong 2-Y-0 claimer at 4.50

5F 2-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 4.50


SECOND ENCORE : Won two races over 5 furlongs this season,including over C/D winning seller last month ,fair third last time at Kempton in claimer over 5 furlongs, behind a fair sort Chevise beaten under lengh when trying to make all.Looks well weighted in this claimer off 8 STONE 1LB.


VERDICT : JOHNNY HANCOCKS tough 2 year old, having his 20TH race of the season,looks the main danger ,takes drop in class here and has to be respected ,though looks plenty short enough for horse only won twice from 20 starts.SECOND ENCORE has fair record over 5 furlongs, 2 wins from 6 starts and looks decent value around 11-4 / 3-1 mark.

Thursdays best bets

Thursday we have two flat cards on very wet and windy day ,Southwell & Wolverhampton ,just the one race of interest 6f claiming stakes at Wolverhampton at 4.50.

6F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 4.50


IMPRIMIS TAGULA :C/D winner ,won twice on turf this season in handicaps at Hamilton & Newmarket ,slightly disappointing last time when unplaced in class 3 handicap at Kempton,takes big drop in class here into class 6 claimer ,has decent record in claiming company over 6 & 7 furlongs winning 3 times.


VERDICT :MATSUNOSUKE looks very well treated in this claimer ,and looks the obvious danger, though only just scrapped home last time in weaker claimer and looks plenty short enough at around 6-4.At the prices IMPRIMIS TAGULA looks solid each-way bet at around 3-1 taking big drop in class.

Strange day at Wolverhampton !!

Mondays each-way double bet both finished placed 2ND &3RD ( LOSS -£40.00 / 0.40 PTS) though that didn't tell the whole story the first leg of double BILKO PAK was heavily backed 8-11 into 8-13 and travelled well in third place and looked the likely winner when leading at furlong pole though clearly didn't stay 7 furlongs finding very little inside final 50yds and got caught near finish by MY LORD.

The second leg of the double MISS KINGWOOD was big gamble 2-1 into 10-11,though ran very very strange race ,everything seemed fine to start with when leading for first half mile, though all of sudden started to hang badly right on the bends and Jockey Hayley Turner had an impossible job steering the horse and was losing so much ground going wide on bends ,though once in straight ran on well again and did manage to finish third.

In the end quite happy to come out only losing £40.00 / 0.40 PTS on a day where not much went right.Hopefully things will improve over all weather season.

Tuesday we have no all weather flat racing in UK, so tomorrow will be blank day.

Mondays best bets

After all the excitement of the breeders cup over the Weekend ,its back to bread- and- butter racing on Monday.Just Wolverhampton on flat to work with, though there does look couple interesting races.

7F 2-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 2.35


BILKO PAK :Won 3 times this season including here at Wolverhampton in claimer over 6F in September beating reliable sort Hortensia by 1.25 lenghs giving that rival 6LB ,on breeding should be well suited by the step up to 7F .Looks well treated at the weights. 




1 MILE 4F MAIDEN STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 4.15


MISS KINGWOOD :Ran promising third in maiden at Kempton over 1 Mile 4F ,behind Wulfrida staying on well at finish ,though was very disappointing last time on turf at Nottingham over 1 Mile 2F finishing well beaten 12th of 16.The return back to 1 Mile 4F on poly track look sure to suit and should go well in this very weak class 6 maiden race .


*Each-way double is bet I will be using in certain type of races over the coming months*

Summary of the weeks bets

It turned out very quiet week with just the one bet on the Thursday VICTORIAN BOUNTY finishing unplaced and loss of £200 - 2.00 points on the week.Not great week to finish the flat turf season, though it was just one them  weeks,very difficult to find any quality bets.

Moving on I have made the decision this winter to concentrate on AW flat racing and completely ignore the National hunt racing ,though I enjoy the jumps racing its not been that profitable over past two seasons and it seems good time to specialize on the one code.

THE RESULTS :

ON THE WEEK 
1 BET ) 0 WINNER ) -L0SS £200 - 2.00 PTS )


OVERALL AFTER 39 WEEKS 
290 BETS ) 84 WINNERS ) +PROFIT £4992- 49.92 PTS)

After all the excitement !!

Incredible Saturday at the breeders cup,two races I will never forget the mile and  classic.

The brilliant French mare Goldikova made it hat-trick of breeders cup mile victories at Churchill Downs on Saturday.

BREEDERS CUP MILE CHURCHILL DOWNS 





Wow, incredible,unbelievable, the most dramatic race I can ever remember ,still can't believe how far ZENYETTA was behind in early stages ,iv'e never seen horse make up so much ground in grade one race, it was incredible performance to get so so close .
