Saturday 9th June Claiming Bet !!

On Saturday we have 0-80 classified claiming stakes at Chester over 7 furlongs .

4.15 CHESTER 7F CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES 0-80
14 runners declared for very competitive 7F claiming stakes at Chester ,with more rain forecast ground conditions are likely to be very testing .The three main contenders with decent draws & proven form on soft ground conditions are Flameoftheforest,Jungle Bay & Kingswinford  

FLAMESOFTHEFOREST: Won 6F handicap at Newcastle last October on soft ground off mark 75 .Also had some fair form in Ireland when trained by Charlie Swan in 2010 .Hasn't shown great deal on his first two starts this season in handicap company ,though will be suited by ground conditions and drops into claiming company for first time . 

JUNGLE BAY : C&D winner here at Chester on good/soft last season .Returned to form last time winning 7F handicap on poly track at Wolverhampton off mark 73 .Well drawn in stall one and should go well dropping into claiming company for first time .

KINGSWINFORD :Dual course winner here at Chester last summer ,including winning this race last year .Has good record in turf claimers 1312 and effective on soft ground .Has to bounce back after couple disappointing  runs on turf ,though will be suited returning to claiming company .

VERDICT: There are 4 non runners this morning leaving 10 runners ,though this still looks wide open claimer .

Kingswinford is best in at the weights and goes well here at Chester ,also has decent record in claiming company .Has to be respected though this looks stronger race than last years event.Odds around 3-1 look little short in wide open race.

FLAMESOFTHEFOREST will be suited by testing conditions having won at Tipperary on heavy ground and soft ground at Newcastle .Should come on for his first two runs this season and  odds around 6-1 look very fair each-way value .

Thursday 7th June Claiming Bet

On Thursday we have two claiming races,going concentrate on the five furlong claiming stakes on poly track at Wolverhampton .

3.40 WOLVERHAMPTON 5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
 Nine runners declared for 5F claimer at Wolverhampton .This looks quite decent claimer for this grade .The two main contenders look to be What About You & Redair .

WHAT ABOUT YOU :Course winner over 6 furlongs here at Wolverhampton ,though not won since November 2010 .However did show some useful form in handicaps on poly track last season including finishing second in class 2 handicap at Lingfield of mark 86 .

REDAIR : Three time C&D winner here at Wolverhampton and has excellent record on poly track over 5 furlongs winning 5 from 6 . Will be suited returning to claiming company and looks big player.

VERDICT : Question marks about most of these, with most of the runners looking totally out of form .

Redair looks to hold obvious chance having already won four times this year and goes well in this grade,though not the best treated at these weights and trainer David Evans has not been in best form .

WHAT ABOUT YOU has to bounce back after couple disappointing runs on turf ,though all his best form has been on poly track and if he can reproduce last seasons solid handicap form ,would take plenty beating in this class 6 claimer.Odds around 3-1 look fair value

THURSDAY 7TH JUNE CLAIMING BET :
WHAT ABOUT YOU 3.40 WOLVERHAMPTON

Weekly Results Round / Up



Yesterday's bet on Overrule in 1 mile 4 furlong claiming stakes at Catterick was disappointing.No real excuses for Overrule who looked to be coming with promising run with 3 furlongs to go ,though could only find the one pace in closing stages and finished well beaten 4TH .The 10-1 winner Herostatus was very difficult to find having never been placed on the turf from 7 starts .


Not great week with no winners from two bets for loss - £100 / 1.00 pt .The last three bets haven't really performed that well with two them finishing unplaced ,though overall  the bets have been doing OK  with over 36% strike rate this year .Hopefully we can come back with winner next week .

Looking ahead to next week we have three claimers scheduled : Tuesday 7F claimer at Leicester ) Thursday 6F claimer at Hamilton & 5F claimer at Wolverhampton )

2 BETS ) 0 WINNERS ) 1 SECOND ) 1 UNPLACED ) LOSS £100.00 / 1.00 PTS
