Saturday's thoughts !!!

With just one All Weather card on Saturday at Lingfield Park ,not great deal of choice the first three races have virtually no runners(4,5,6) and next four races are ultra competitive handicaps that make no appeal whatsoever .


With the All Weather racing at the minute, good betting opportunities have been thin on the ground, especially with the lack runners in the non handicaps races,just two bets so far this week ,though both bets were winners, so no complaints here !!!


Just have to stay dicsplined and wait for that next good opportunity to come along ,hopefully sooner rather than later.

Blank on Friday

Two All Weather cards on Friday at  Lingfield & evening card at Wolverhampton ,though both cards look very average ,with some very tricky looking handicaps that make no appeal.No bets on Friday.

Excellent Day !!

Excellent result on Wednesday with Social Forum winning the 7 furlong maiden stakes landing nice gamble 6-1 into 7-2 for very tidy profit + £720 / 7.20 Pts


This was fascinating betting heat with massive gamble on the newcomer York Glory 10-1 into 9-4 favourite.  York Glory blew his chance at the start, with very slow break losing many lenghs.though did well to finish 3rd in the circumstances .


The original favourite Cold Secret was big drifter in market and was very disappointing after slow start finishing well beaten 7th.


Social Forum available at 6-1 in morning , was well supported in market going off 7-2 third favourite.Always in good position close to the pace, led with 3 furlongs to run and battled on well at finish to win by half lengh,making it an excellent day!!


Quickly on to Thursday's racing two All Weather cards at Southwell & Wolverhampton ,though both cards make no appeal ,in particular Southwell which has next too no runners,biggest field being seven and thats before any non runners .No bets on Thursday .



Wednesdays best bet !!

Two All Weather flat cards on Wednesday at Lingfield & Kempton ,going concentrate on first race at Lingfield the 7 furlong 3-Y-0 maiden stakes at 2.00


7 FURLONG 3-Y-0 MAIDEN STAKES CLASS 5 LINGFIELD 2.00
SOCIAL FORUM : Promising third last time in 6 furlong maiden at Lingfield ,only beaten 1 lengh behind the Richard Hannon trained Palais Glide ,that form looks quite solid with the winner going on to finish close second next time in handicap at Kempton off mark 70 and the Second, Christmas Aria also boosting the form winning maiden next time at Southwell by 4.5 lenghs.The step up to 7 furlongs should also suit having finished well last time. 


VERDICT : Cold Secret looks the obvious danger after running good second in 7 furlong maiden at Kempton ,finishing strongly from off the pace ,that looked fair maiden ,and looks sure to go well ,though does looks quite short in market at around 13-8 mark.


Sofia's Number One placed on all three starts looked disappointing last time when beaten short priced favourite over C&D at Lingfield ,in what looked lot weaker maiden,the time of the race was also very slow.


SOCIAL FORUM looks open to plenty improvement stepping up to 7 furlongs on polytrack, and at over double the price looks the value bet against the favourite.

Good start !!!

Good start to the week with Restless Bay winning 6 furlong selling stakes in good style at 7-2 ,in fact did touch as big 9-2 just before the off  on betfair.No complaints here with 7-2 and nice to start the week with tidy profit on the day  £420 / 4.20 PTS    

Quickly on to Tuesdays racing ,just the one All Weather card at Southwell, with not a great deal of interest there on very moderate looking meeting ,featuring five very tricky looking handicaps.No bet on Tuesday.

Mondays best bets !!

Start of another week and hopefully bit better than last week,just one All Weather card on Monday at Wolverhampton ,going concentrate on 6 furlong selling stakes at 2.40

6F SELLING STAKES CLASS 6 WOLVERHAMPTON 2.40
RESTLESS BAY : C&D winner back in September winning class 5 handicap at Wolverhampton ,not won since though has ran some fair races, including finishing short head second in class 3 handicap in November behind Fifth Commandment ,finished 4th on his last two starts in handicaps at Kempton off mark 71 .Takes drop in class into selling company for first time.Looks well treated off 8 stone 7 lb


VERDICT :  FREQUENCY  looks the big danger after winning his last two races in good style for Amy Weaver (seller & claimer) ,has since been claimed for £3000 and runs first time for Michael Wigham. RESTLESS BAY is slightly favored at the prices,taking drop in class, running in seller for first time and looks well treated receiving 20LB off Frequency.

Reflecting on sad day at Newbury & Weekly review !!

After yesterday's sad events at Newbury ,my deepest thoughts go out to the connections of both MARCHING SONG & FENIX TWO  R.I.P 

Reports today suggest both horses were electrocuted by underground cable ,A racecourse spokesman confirmed a cable ,thought to be dormant ,has been found under the paddock and was later removed for further inspection.


WEEKLY REVIEW

Finished up frustrating week with loss - £240 / 2.40 pts,though I thought both bets ran fair enough races .Colorus finishing close second in selling stakes at Southwell and Bankable finishing unlucky 4TH at Meydan,so not too disappointed in having a losing week

RESULTS :
