Monday 30th July Claiming Bet!!

On Monday its back to All Weather with 6 furlong three year old claimer on poly track at Lingfield .

LINGFIELD 2.25 6F 3-Y-0 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 : 
8 runners declared for 3 year old claiming Stakes on poly track at Lingfield .On official handicap rating this looks three horse race between Redair , Ziefhd and Asian Trader .

REDAIR : Great record on poly track over 5 furlongs with 6 wins from 7 starts ,and also has good record in claiming races 3 from 5 .Finished fair second last time in 5 furlong handicap at Ffos Los.Has yet to win over 6 furlongs from 8 starts .

ZIEFHD : Been disappointing on his last three starts on turf ,though has some fair form on poly track ,including finishing good second in 7 furlong handicap here at Linfield in May off mark 80.Should go well dropping into claiming company for first time .

ASIAN TRADER :Finished fair third in 20 runner maiden at Doncaster on debut in May ,though has been disappointing on his last two starts .Lightly raced though hard to weigh up.


VERDICT : Redair looks the one to beat here having already won five times this year ,though all her wins have been over 5 furlongs , though she has finished second twice over 6 furlongs she has yet to win over this distance from 8 starts .Has to be respected ,though there remains doubt over this trip .

ZIEFHD is 3LB clear at the weights, she will need to bounce back after some disappointing runs on turf .However all her best form has been on poly track and should go well with this drop in class .Odds around 7-2 look fair value .

Weekly Results Round / Up

Saturday's claiming bet on Benzanno in 1 mile claiming stakes at Salisbury was bitterly disappointing ,weakening quickly with 2 furlongs to run and finishing last of nine.Not sure what happened with Benzanno after being very well supported in market 7-2 into 2-1 ,though ran no kind of race.

Overall its been very disappointing week with £300 / 3.00 PTS loss ,with all three bets finishing unplaced .These bad weeks do happen from time to time ,though I can't remember backing three horses in row that ran so bad . Hopefully next week we will see a big improvement.
