Another blank Saturday !!

No real complaints with Fridays bet Dream of Fortune ran solid enough race finishing second at 4-1 ,had every chance with two furlongs to run though never really looked like catching April Fool inside final furlong.Small loss on the race £20.00 / 0.20 PTS

The big gamble of the race Querido who was backed from 2-1 into 5-6 was big disappointment only finishing forth and never looked like winning .Really surprising how punters backed him into odds on favourite.Always worth taking on these horses at such short price.  

On to Saturdays racing only one flat card at Lingfield and betting opportunities look thin on the ground  and no possible bet on Saturday,though Sunday looks lot more promising with couple interesting races at Kempton park.

Fridays best bets!!

Finally we have some action on Friday with the first bet of the week ,going concentrate on the 1 mile claiming stakes at Wolverhampton's evening card at 5.10

1M 141YDS CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5 WOLVERHAMPTON 5.10

DREAM OF FORTUNE :Very consistent 7 year old , seven wins on poly track winning twice in 2010 ,ran decent second last time in 10 furlong claimer at Lingfield behind Faithful Ruler,this looks weaker race with plenty of out of form horses in opposition.

VERDICT: Not the strongest of claimers with plenty out form horses.Course specialist QUEREDO looks main danger after winning 4 times in 2010 ,though was bit disappointing last time only finishing 6TH in handicap .Wears visor for first time which is bit surprising after winning 3 times this winter without any headgear. DREAM OF FORTUNE very rarely runs bad race in this grade and should go close in this ordinary looking claimer.looks fair value at around 7-2 mark.

Very quiet week !!

Not great deal happening this week ,after going through Tuesday & Wednesdays cards there looks no good betting opportunities till at least Thursday.

Tuesdays only flat card at Southwell looks very moderate which features six poor looking handicaps with no interest there.

Wednesday we have two flat cards at Lingfield & Kempton ,though again nothing really makes much appeal.Hopefully there will be some decent betting opportunities later in the week.

Weekly review !!

Sundays split stakes bet on LOWTHER, finished second the other part of the bet BEAUCHAMP VICEROY finished disappointing forth.

After missing the break LOWTHER made up lot ground and did well to finish second though was no match for impressive winner Brave Echo who won easing down.The other part of the bet BEAUCHAMP VICEROY tried to make all,though folded tamely two furlongs out.Loss of £100 / 1.00 pt on the day.

Finished up a losing week.All three bets ran ok finishing placed, though to be honest never came that close to winning ,not the greatest week though could been lot worse .

RESULTS:


ON THE WEEK
3 BETS ) 0 WINNERS ) LOSS £195 / 1.95 PTS


OVERALL AFTER WEEK THREE 2011
7 BETS )2 WINNERS ) PROFIT £420 / 4.20 PTS



2010 PROFIT: £4670 / 46.70 PTS
2011 PROFIT: £420 /  4.20 PTS


RUNNING TOTAL PROFIT + £5090 / 50.90 PTS

Sundays best bets!!

Saturdays bet SNOWY PEAK finished well beaten third behind newcomer Ruby Brook ,no real excuses had perfect position in second place but was in trouble fully three furlongs out and soon beaten.

I was expecting much better run than that, though at least she did hold on for third.So could been lot worse
Loss £50.00 / 0.50 PTS on the day.

Sunday we have one flat card at Kempton park with quite decent 1 mile conditions race at 3.45, though this looks quite competitive race there does look two runners in the race that look bit overpriced.

1 MILE CONDITION STAKES CLASS 4 KEMPTON 3.45
BEAUCHAMP VICEROY : Useful performer  on polytrack with 7 wins.Won class 2 handicap here at Kempton over 7 furlongs last April off mark 102.Not won since though has ran some good races in defeat including finishing close third in listed race  behind the useful Riggins.Takes big drop in class into class 4 company and should go well.


LOWTHER : Consistent 6-Y-0 been in good form this winter ,ran excellent second in class 2 handicap back in December behind Final Drive only beaten neck of mark 92 ,that form has been boosted with Final Drive winning six of his last seven races .


VERDICT : Both BEAUCHAMP VICEROY & LOWTHER look to have solid chances against the surprising favourite Greyfriarschorista, who does have good record on polytrack and is trained by inform Mark Johnston ,though hasn't ran for 4 months and has shown very little on his last 4 starts on turf and hasn't won race for 11 months.At the prices BEAUCHAMP VICEROY & LOWTHER look decent value and are worth split stakes bet at decent odds.


BEAUCHAMP VICEROY 3.45 LINGFIELD
£50 EACH-WAY - 0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 4-1 BET 365 


LOWTHER 
£50 EACH-WAY - 0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 5-1 BET365
