Saturdays best bets !!

Fridays split stakes bet on ROSEWOOD LAD & MR MUDDLE was bit disappointing, both horses were heavily supported ROSEWOOD LAD 5-1 into 11-4 & MR MUDDLE 9-2 into 3-1,though in particular MR MUDDLE was bitter disappointment finishing last of 9 ,dropping away very tamely before half way stage,and not horse I would trust again on flat after that disappointing performance.

ROSEWOOD LAD after getting outpaced in early part of the race, looked like catching Mister Frosty inside last 50yds and traded as short as 1-7 in running ,though just couldn't quite get there in the end getting beat half lengh ,ended up slightly disappointing race, though at least only half the stake was lost .
Loss on the day £100 / 1.00 PT

On to Saturday's racing just one flat card at Lingfield ,though there looks  interesting 10 furlong claiming stakes at 1.15

10F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 LINGFIELD 1.15


FAITHFUL RULER : Bolted up in 1 mile seller at Lingfield 18 days ago,winning easily by 7 lenghs for Richard Fahey ,was then sold for £8600 at the auction to Ron Harris.Had some decent form last season in good handicaps finishing third in two class 2 handicaps .Looks well weighted in this class 6 claimer.


VERDICT : Course specialist SGT SCHULTZ is best in at  the weights ,though has big question marks having not run for nearly 6 months and shown nothing on last three starts on turf last summer. FAITHFUL RULER was very impressive winner last time at Lingfield when dropped in class ,and that form has been boosted by second & third horses both running well next time in handicaps.Should go well on his first run for in form Ron Harris

Fridays best bets

Two flat cards  at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,just the one race of interest on Friday the 1 mile 4F maiden stakes at 2.00

1 MILE 4F MAIDEN STAKES CLASS 5 LINGFIELD 2.00 


ROSEWOOD LAD : Very consistent 4-Y-0 gelding finishing second six times , in good form this winter finishing 2ND on all three starts in handicaps ,goes well here at Lingfield, including when finishing good 2ND over C&D back in December.Should go well under ideal conditions.


MR MUDDLE : Two promising runs in novice hurdles over 2 miles, finishing second both times behind fair sorts ,looks open to plenty improvement returning to flat, and should go well in this weak looking maiden race.


VERDICT : Very interesting betting race with Mister Frosty being put in as favourite on betfair which is very surprising for horse that's still maiden after 27 starts .Both ROSEWOOD LAD & MR MUDDLE look to have solid chances and both look over priced against weak looking  favourite.

Wednesday reflections !!

HONKERS BONKERS could only manage 3RD in 6 furlong selling stakes behind  the odds on favourite Fifth in Line, with two furlongs to run he looked to have every chance and did trade as short as 8-13  in running  ,though didn't find great deal inside final furlong and was well held at finish and beaten 1.75 lenghs.No real complaints and not too much damage done with £45.00 / 0.45 PTS Loss.

On to Thursdays racing ,two flat cards at Southwell & Kempton both cards make limited appeal. Kempton's seven race card features six tough looking  handicaps and Southwell once again suffering from lack runners and no interest there.

Wednesdays best bet

Not great deal been happening  in January with only one bet so far this month.On Wednesday we have the second bet of the month, going concentrate on the first race at Lingfield  6 furlong 3-Y-0 selling stakes at 12.40

6F 3-Y-0 SELLING STAKES CLASS 6 LINGFIELD 12.40
HONKERS BONKERS :Good third in seller over C&D at Lingfield back in December behind Slatey Hen & Silence is Bliss ,that looked quite decent selling race with the winner & second both winning better races since.Finished second at Southwell last time in claimer over 6 furlongs behind Bold Dictator only beaten 1.25 lenghs that form was boosted yesterday with Bold Dictator finishing good second in Handicap at Southwell.Should go well back in selling company.




VERDICT : FIFTH IN LINE looks to have plenty in her favour after finishing 2ND four times in better company, drops into selling company for first time ,though looks no value at 10-11 for horse yet to get her head in front. HONKERS BONKERS has run well on his last two starts, and looks decent value to upset the hot favourite.Alan McCabe stable has been good form with 4 winners already this month and has decent draw in stall 2.

Blank on Monday & Tuesday !!

Another quiet start to the week with both Monday & Tuesday offering no decent betting opportunities today's flat card at Wolverhampton looks typical Monday card with some very tricky low grade handicaps.Tuesday looks much the same at Southwell with no interest there either

Wednesday looks lot more promising at Lingfield & Kempton with two very interesting races.
