Saturday 31st August Group 3 Atalanta Stakes Bet

Good result on Bank Holiday Monday with Extraterrestrial @ 11-4 winning 1 mile claiming stakes at Newcastle for £165.00 profit .In very tight finish Extraterrestrial just got the verdict by short head from King Pin .No other bets so far this week, with the racing being of very low standard .

On Saturday we have fair looking card from Sandown ,with the two feature races being group three Sweet Solario stakes for two year olds over 7 furlongs & group three Atalanta Stakes over 1 mile for fillies & Mares .

Going concentrate on the days feature race 1 mile Atalanta Stakes on ground described as Good/ Good /Firm places

3.15 SANDOWN 1 MILE FILLIES AND MARES GROUP THREE:
10 runners go to post for decent looking group three contest for fillies and mares ,with the withdrawal of Chigun overnight .This race now looks match between Zibelina & Integral 

ZIBELINA : Progressive filly ,unbeaten after three starts .Won the Woodcote stud listed stakes at Ascot last month in good style .Followed that winning group three contest at Deauville last time ,beating fair French horse in Table Ronde .Looks open to plenty more improvement .

INTEGRAL : Won first two starts ,including listed race over C&D at Sandown quickening up in impressive style from well off pace .Took big step up in class last time when finishing 7th of 14 in group one Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood ,though never got clear run at any stage in very messy race .Obvious claims now dropping back into group three company.

VERDICT : Integral is going be popular here dropping back into group three company after looking unlucky last time in Nassau at Goodwood.However her win over C&D in listed race back in July ,hasn't really worked out with second ,third & fourth from that race all being soundly beaten since .Still has to be respected with Sir Michael Stoute having such good record in the race ,though odds around 6-4 look too short .

The unbeaten ZIBELINA has solid form in group three company and still looks open to plenty improvement .She can get the better of her main rival Integral in race that looks to concern just the two .At  double the odds of her main rival ,she looks good value bet here at 3-1 .

Bank Holiday Monday Claiming Stakes Bet

Disappointing result yesterday with Pastoral Player finishing fourth in Supreme Stakes at Goodwood. For some reason the horse was massive drifter on course going off over 13-1 on betfair from early 5-1 

However in the race there was no real excuses, Pastoral Player looked to be coming with promising run with two furlongs to run ,though the effort petered out inside the final furlong .Only managing fourth for £100.00 loss .

Moving on to bank holiday Monday,as usual we have plenty of low grade meetings and normally I would give the racing a miss, with so much low quality on offer.However there looks quite interesting 1 mile claiming stakes at Newcastle ,that looks worth a small bet . 

3.25 NEWCASTLE 1 MILE CLAIMING STAKES :
9 runners declared for 1 mile claiming stakes on ground described as good/soft .This doesn't look bad race for this grade .The three main contenders look to be ,Joburg ,Extraterrestrial & King Pin .

JO'BURG :Fair handicapper on his day won two class 4 handicaps last season at Redcar off marks 77 & 81 .Returned to winning ways when dropped into claiming company beating Extraterrestrial by 3/4 lengh at Doncaster in July .Well beaten last time in handicap at Redcar finishing last of 11 ,though will be suited returning to claiming company.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL :Been running well in this grade recently ,won 1 mile claimer at Carlisle in July and was just touched off next time in 9 furlong claimer at same course behind Seattle Drive  .Finished fair 6th of 16 last time in class three handicap at Ripon & will be suited dropping back into claiming company.

KING PIN :Been disappointing on his last three starts in handicap company ,though has fair record in this grade .Won 1 mile claimer over C&D in April and will be suited returning to this grade ,though still has bit to find at today's weights .

VERDICT : Jo 'burg is 4LB clear on official BHA ratings and has good record in claimers ,though all nine victories have come on good or faster ground ,with the soft ground conditions here looks worth taking on at around 6-4 .

EXTRATERRESTRIAL has to reverse Doncaster form with Jo'burg ,though will be better suited to these softer ground conditions .Has been running well in claiming company this season and can get the better of Jo 'Burg .In what looks weak race 11-4 looks fair value .

Of the others King Pin has each-way claims ,has fair record in claimers ,though will need bounce back after three disappointing runs recently .

Sunday 25th August Supreme Stakes Bet

Good result on Thursday with Lucky Kristale winning the Lowther Stakes in good style at 11-4 for tidy profit of £343.00 profit .Its been good month so far for the blog with three winners from four bets for £665 profit / 6.65 points.

Hopefully we can keep the good run going on Sunday .Going concentrate on the day's feature race the 7 furlong Green King Supreme Stakes on ground described as good .

4.30 GOODWOOD 7F SUPREME STAKES GROUP 3:
9 runners declared for group three contest at Goodwood .The main contenders look to be Boom Or Bust , Penitent & Pastoral Player .

BOOM AND BUST : Consistent sort ,been running well in group company this season ,finishing third over C&D in group two Lennox stakes at Glorious Goodwood in July .Followed that with 6 lengh second behind the useful Afsare in group three contest at Salisbury last time .

PENITENT : Useful sort when there's cut in the ground ,won two group 2 contests last season at Newmarket & Sandown .Finished good second behind Gregorian in group 3 Diomed Stakes at Epsom at end of may .Will be suited by any rain .

PASTORAL PLAYER : Not the easiest ride ,though useful sort on his day .Won group three Timeform Jury Stakes at Haydock last season .Looked unlucky when beaten short head in same race this season .Never got any kind run last time when finishing unplaced behind Garswood in Lennox stakes .

VERDICT : Penitent is 5LB clear on official BHA ratings and looks the one to beat after winning two group 2 races last season ,though his last seven wins have all come over 1 mile ,the drop back to 7 furlongs is major concern .

PASTORAL PLAYER is tricky ride and will need luck in running, though has plenty solid form in group races and this race should be run to suit .With confirmed front runners Boom and Bust & Libranno in the race .Odds around 5-1 look fair each-way value, in not the strongest looking group three contest .

Of the others the reliable Boom and Bust has each-way claims ,though normally comes up just short in group company .

PASTORAL PLAYER 4.30 GOODWOOD
