Another blank Saturday !!

Friday's bet on Handsome Falcon in 7 furlong selling stakes was very disappointing only finishing fifth. With over two furlongs to run was travelling best of all  and looked the likely winner trading as short as 1-2 in running ,though stopped very quickly inside last furlong ,most disappointing effort .Loss on the day £264.


On to Saturdays racing we have six flat cards .Sandown & Haydock stage the feature cards with some top quality races ,though both cards look very competitive with some tough looking races and no suitable betting opportunities and its going to be another blank Saturday.

Fridays best bets!!

Start of another month as we move into July with plenty racing on Friday with five flat cards .Going concentrate on evening fixture at Beverley and the first race on the card  7 furlongs selling stakes at 6.30 




7F SELLING STAKES CLASS 6  BEVERLEY 6.30
HANDSOME FALCON : Course & distance winner and goes particularly well here at Beverley ,ran decent 2nd over C&D in class 5 handicap in early May behind My Gacho.Has disappointed on his last two starts in better company.Will be suited by drop in class into selling company for first time.


VERDICT :Interesting little selling  stakes that looks to concern only four runners Hogmaneigh ,Handsome Falcon ,Kipchak and Glenmuir. 


Hogmaneigh is well clear on BHA ratings and will be very difficult to beat if he stays this extended 7 furlongs ,though that's the  big question mark and its nearly 3 years since his last win.


Both Kipchak & Glenmuir are consistent sorts and can't be ruled out ,though both have bit to find at the weights.


HANDSOME FALCON should go well in this selling stakes , looks to have ideal conditions, proven winner over course and distance and now dropping into selling company for first time .4-1 looks decent value .  






HANDSOME FALCON 6.30 BEVERLEY (FIFTH SP 3-1 )
£132 EACH-WAY @4-1 STAN JAMES.
LOSS -£264 BANK RUNNING TOTAL £5012

Monday reflections !!!

Monday's bet on Anjomarba ended up being late non runner which was slightly frustrating as she was quite strong fancy in what looked weak selling stakes .


The race going to 9-4 jt favourite Efistorm who won quite comfortably and seemed to have no problem staying 6 furlongs ,though with the other favourite Dear Maurice running very flat race, Efistorm didn't need to be at his best to win weak seller.


On to Tuesdays racing three flat cards at Brighton , Hamilton & Southwell ,all three cards look very poor quality with no possible betting opportunities on Tuesday.The racing looks much better latter in the week with some decent looking cards at Epsom ,Newbury and Sandown .

Mondays best bets !!!

Four flat cards on Monday at Pontefract,Wolverhampton and two evening fixtures at Windsor and Musselburgh.Pretty average stuff as usual on Monday ,just one race of interest the 6 furlong selling stakes at Windsor 

6 FURLONG SELLING STAKES CLASS 6 WINDSOR 7.10
ANJOMARBA : Consistent filly with good strike rate for horse of her ability (10 wins from 39 starts) won six times in 2010 also good winner last time in class 6 handicap at Folkestone of mark 63 .Finished credible second over C&D at Windsor back in early May behind Memphis Blues .Will be suited dropping back into selling company.

VERDICT : Efistorm ,Anjomarba & Dear Maurice look the three to concentrate on in this 6 furlong selling stakes.  

Efistorm looks well treated in seller after finishing second on his last two starts in fair 6 furlong claimers,though all his best form has been over 5 furlongs (15 wins)only one win over 6 furlongs and trainer Conor Dore is not in greatest form 1 winner from 40 runners over past two months.Should be thereabouts though not convinced about this trip.2-1 looks no value

Dear Maurice best in on offical handicap ratings,though not won for nearly 3 years , both wins came here at Windsor over 1 mile ,ran some fair races last season in 6 furlong handicaps finishing placed off mark 75. Drops into selling company for first time and looks big danger if fully fit after 7 month lay off. 

ANJOMARBA is in good form and has an excellent record in selling races on turf with 5 wins from 8 starts (13331111) .Has plenty in her favour in this selling stakes, 6 furlongs on fast ground are ideal and looks decent value at around 4-1 .

Weekly results / round up !!

It turned out very decent week with 2 winners from three bets for profit of £693 on the week,that makes it three winning weeks in row so far this month.June has seen big improvement in the results with ,4 WINNERS) 5 SECONDS ) 1 UNPLACED ) FROM 10 BETS.Hopefully this will continue in July and August . 


The first bet on the week was on the Tuesday at Beverley on PORGY at 11-4 in 1mile 4 furlong claiming stakes this was very easy victory ,always travelling well and coming home very easy 5 lengh winner for profit of £369 on the day .


Second bet was on the Thursday at Leicester in 7 furlong selling stakes on CHILLEDTOTHEBONE at 10-3 ,though finishing second never really threatened the winner and slightly disappointing run ,though not too much damage done with loss of £42.00 on the race.


Final bet of the week was on Friday at Newmarket's evening fixture in 1 mile claiming stakes on CERTRAL ,this was subject to quite big early morning gamble with 7-2 available with Betfred & 
3-1 with Bet365 ,Personally I was on at 3-1 though these prices disappeared very quickly before I was able to post on the blog and the bet will be recorded at 5-2.In the race itself CERTRAL was always close to the pace and once getting clear run against the rail won very comfortably by 3 lenghs.For profit of £366 on the race.
