Saturdays best bets !!

Only the one flat card on Saturday at Lingfield ,with just one race of interest  3 year old 1 mile maiden stakes at 2.00.

SNOWY PEAK : Promising debut at Lingfield in maiden over 7 furlongs in December ,stayed on well in closing stages to finish never nearer 5TH  ,given very easy introduction that day and looks open  plenty improvement on her second start,the step up to 1 mile looks sure to suit.Trainer Jeremy Noseda is also in excellent form 5 winners from 9 runners  in January.

VERDICT : Crafty Roberto looks obvious danger after finishing promising 2ND at Kempton over 1 mile in fair maiden ,though has been put in very short here and looks no value at around 8-11.
At over 3 times the price SNOWY PEAK looks decent value to upset the odds on favourite.

No action on Friday !!

Not great deal happening this week with only one bet so far, Friday looks much the same with two very competitive looking flat cards at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,very difficult to find any good betting opportunities at either card and Friday will be another blank day.

Saturday & Sunday looks bit more promising with couple interesting races at Lingfield & Kempton and hopefully we will be back in action over the weekend.

Wednesday reflections !!

Wednesdays bet RUBENSTAR was slightly disappointing finishing a never nearer third ,could never quite get to the first two beaten short head & one lengh ,bit surprising he did trade as short as 1-3 in running, though to  be honest never really looked like catching  I Confess & Fivefold .

With the place part of the bet coming in no real damage done .Loss on the day £45.00 / 0.45 PTS

On to Thursdays racing two average flat cards at Lingfield & Wolverhampton ,though after going through both cards not great deal of interest at either card and no bets on Thursday.

Wednesdays best bets!!

Two flat cards on Wednesday at Lingfield & Kempton ,no real interest at Kempton's  evening card which features seven very competitive looking handicaps.For the first bet of the week,I'm going concentrate on the 7f claiming stakes at Lingfield


RUBENSTAR : Four time C&D winner at Lingfield , in great form winning twice in 5 days earlier this month .Won handicap over C&D at Lingfield beating Lord Deevert by 1.5 lenghs,followed that win by winning 7f handicap at Wolverhampton beating Saddlers Charm by head,did well to win that day after getting hampered at start .Should go well with ideal conditions.

VERDICT : I CONFESS looks the main danger, goes well here at Lingfield winning 4 times ,though not the easiest horse to win with only 1 win from last 30 starts.
RUBENSTAR has excellent record over course & distance (4 wins from 7 starts in handicaps ) takes drop into claiming company and looks well treated off 8 stone 1lb.3-1 or bigger looks value !!

£100 WIN @ 3.90 BETFAIR
£100 PLACE @ 1.58 BETFAIR

Two early morning non runners ,Phytheas & Jack Olantern,just over 11-4 with betfair still looks very fair price and they are still paying three places on the place market.

The week ahead !!

Similar story too the last two weeks with not a great deal happening in the early part of the week.

Wolverhampton have two day fixture on Monday & Tuesday ,though both cards look incredibly poor with hardly any runners on Monday ,six of the seven races having 6 or less runners.

Tuesday doesn't look much better with no stand out bets.Hopefully there will be some better opportunities later in the week.

Weekly review !!

Good finish to the week with FAITHFUL RULER winning nicely at Lingfield in 10 furlong claiming stakes at 3-1 landing very late gamble ,in fact 10 minutes before the race was available at  7-2 on betfair ,before being heavily backed into 15-8 just before the off . Tidy £360 / 3.60 PTS PROFIT on the day.

Overall I'm pleased how the first two weeks have gone ,not many bets (4) though  its been quite solid start to January.
