Saturdays best bets !!

Good to be back after two very enjoyable days at York ,with the main highlight for me being Sea Moon winning the Great Voltiguer on the Wednesday in great style by 8 lenghs at incredible SP of 11-2 .


I was more than happy to take 7-2 best price guarantee the return of 11-2 SP was huge bonus with over £913 profit.Also good to see Twice Over win another group one race beating his more fancied stable companion in thrilling race .


Moving on to Saturday's racing the final day of  York Ebor meeting ,going concentrate on group two Lonsdale Cup at 3.05


2 MILES GROUP TWO LONSDALE CUP YORK 3.05
HARRIS TWEED : Consistent group race performer been in good form this season finishing placed on all three starts .Ran good second last time at Glorious Goodwood in the group three Glorious stakes over 1 mile 4 furlongs just getting touched of by Drunken Sailor in close finish.Has to prove his stamina over 2 miles ,though wasn't stopping when winning over 1 mile 6 at Newmarket last season.


VERDICT :Interesting group two contest with three main contenders Opinion poll ,Blue Bajan & Harris Tweed.


Last years winner Opinion Poll should go well after winning last time in Goodwood Cup and will be suited by easy ground conditions ,though this looks tougher race than last year.  


Blue Bajan looks closely matched with Opinion Poll on Goodwood Cup running and has 3lb pull in the weights .Should be thereabouts with conditions likely to suit.


HARRIS TWEED has some very decent form over shorter trips this season  and shapes as though he should stay this longer trip .Trainer William Haggas has been in excellent form this month. At around 4-1 looks very fair value.

York Ebor Festival day one !!!

The first day of the York festival doesn't look easy with some very difficult handicaps that don't really interest me for betting purposes .


The two feature races G1 Juddmonte international & G2 Great Voltiguer stakes both look very interesting races .


1M 4F GREAT VOLTIGEUR STAKES GROUP 2 YORK 3.05 
SEA MOON :Smart prospect winning his last two starts .won well here last time in class 2 handicap over 1 mile 2 furlongs off mark 92 .Will be suited by step up in trip and looks open to plenty improvement .


VERDICT : Interesting St Leger trial with three main contenders .Nambian,Sea Moon & Seville.


Nambian : Tough sort, not stopped improving all year winning his last two starts at Ascot & Goodwood battled all the way to line last time when beating M.Stoute trained Fiorente in group 3 Gordon stakes at Glorious Goodwood over this distance ,this looks tougher race though can't ruled out.


Seville : Is clearly the one to beat after finishing second in Irish Derby & G1 Grand Prix De Paris ,though with only one win from seven starts,finishing second 5 times.Looks bit short in market around 5-4.


SEA MOON will need to improve to win this race group two contest ,though looks open to plenty improvement  over this longer trip .Trainer Sir Michael Stoute has excellent record in race and looks good each-way value at 7-2 against the short price favourite.

The week ahead !!

Another typical Monday with four very average cards at Kempton,Thirsk,Windsor & Yarmouth , good betting opportunities look very thin on the ground,with no possible bets.


The racing gets lot better on Wednesday with the start of the excellent four day Ebor Festival at York ,which I will be attending on the first two days.Wednesday will be very early start travelling the 210 mile journey from Lowestoft to York. 


On the first day the feature races being the group one Juddmonte international stakes, group two Great Voltigeur stakes and group three Accomb stakes.


Moving on to the Thursday (Ladies day ) the feature races being the group one Yorkshire Oaks and Group two Lowther stakes.Hopefully there will be some good betting opportunities over the first two days.

Weekly results / round up !!

Been decent start in August with another steady week ,one winner from 2 bets with Bolodenka winning the claiming stakes at Beverley on Wednesday.


Friday's bet on Zomerlust in 7 furlong claiming stakes at Newbury was disappointing only finishing fifth,though I had bad feeling when it started to drift in market going off 11-2 and did touch 7-1 on betfair ,in the race Zomerlust folded very tamely after leading, Can't really complain too much as it still finished up winning week with £149.00 profit .
