2K to 10K Betting Challenge ( Bet No 69 ) Thu 16th Jan

2K to 10K Betting Challenge returns on Thursday at the Dubai Carnival . 

The betting bankroll stands at £2937 (+£937) as we start the third and final season of the challenge .Stakes start at £118.00 with the bankroll £2937 divided into 25 units .

Moving on to Thursday ,we have decent card from Meydan,with the main interest the 10f Listed handicap at 3.40 .

11 runners declared for Zaabel Turf on ground described as good . This looks top quality listed handicap with the three main contenders Dream Castle,Desert Fire & Loxley .

DREAM CASTLE : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 18 .Had some useful form at Meydan Carnival last season winning three group races ,including winning 9F (G1) Jebel Hatta in March .Has been disappointing in five runs since in G1/G2 company ,including two runs in Australia .Will be suited by this big drop in class ,though will need to bounce back.

DESERT FIRE : 5-Y-0 Bay Entire ,winning 4 out 11 .Consistent sort ,ran with credit at Meydan last season ,including winning 8f turf handicap off mark 95 .Returned to winning form on Polytrack at Chelmsford in September ,winning 10f handicap off mark 102 .Takes step up in class ,though open to improvement returning to Meydan .

LOXLEY : 5-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 13 ,including winning 12f (G2) at Deauville in 2018 .Not won since,though finished second on last three starts in listed company ,including just getting touched off in fair contest at Kempton last time .The return to this shorter trip shouldn't be problem, having won twice over distance back in 2018 .Interesting contender back on the turf .

VERDICT : Dream Castle is clearly the one to beat on last seasons group winning form at Meydan ,though has been bitterly disappointing since ,including only beaten one rival in last two starts in Australia .Will find this company lot easier,though has too many question marks for me .
 
LOXLEY has been knocking on the door in listed company,including finishing close second to 107 rated Pablo Escobarr last time on polytrack at Kempton ,that was fair effort giving decent rival 4lb .Looks fairly treated off mark 107 in this listed handicap .Odds around 9-2 look fair e-w value .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 68 ) Sat 21st Dec

2K to 10K Betting challenge continues on Saturday from Lingfield Park .

The betting bankroll stands at £3061 (+1061) ,after Oh This Is Us finished unplaced in Hyde stakes at Kempton .Dropping away tamely in closing stages .

Been disappointing run of results since August with the bankroll dropping from £3769 to £3061 after losing run of 7 bets.Stakes drop down to £122.00

Hopefully we can finish the year on positive note.Moving on to Saturday we have decent little  listed race on polyrack from Lingfield Park.

5 runners declared for Quebec Stakes over 10f on the poly track .Small but select field with just five runners going to post .

DALGARNO : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 12 .Returned to form last time winning 9.5f listed race on poly track at Deauville in France ,not easy to weigh up that form, though didn't look the strongest listed race .No easy task under 3lb penalty,others preferred .

COURT HOUSE : 4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 3 out 10 on All Weather .Had some decent form last season on All Weather ,including finishing second in Winter Derby over C&D at Lingfield in February.Not ran since last April ,when well beaten 6th in Easter Classic .Been gelded since ,though somthing to prove after 8 month absence .

KASBAAN : 4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 3 out 6 on All Weather .Very consistent sort ,winning twice at Kempton in September .Been running consistently since ,including finishing close second behind Dubai Warrior last month,though no easy task at these weights .

VICTORY BOND : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 11 on All Weather .Goes particarly well here at Lingfield (15122),including winning the Easter Classic back in 2018 on AW Finals day .Returned to form last time at Lingfield,winning class two handicap over C&D,off mark 100 .Back up in class ,though very rarely runs bad race here at Lingfield

DUBAI WARRIOR : 3-Y-0 Bay Gelding,winning 3 out 4 on All Weather.Useful sort with excellent record on All Weather,including winning 10f class two handicap at Chelmsford last time, with Kasbaan & Victory Bond behind .Yet to race at Lingfield ,though looks well treated in this listed contest .

VERDICT : Dubai Warrior is sure be popular after winning in good style at Chelmsford last time .Meets his two main rivals on 5lb better terms here.Looks the one to beat on these terms ,though odds around 4-6 are very short for horse that was turned over at 2-5,off mark 98 in small size field earlier in season .

VICTORY BOND should go well after winning cosily at Lingfield earlier this month ,has bit to find with Dubai Warrior on previous Chelmsford form,though that was his first run for nearly 7 months .Clearly improved for that race when beating Kasbaan at Linfield last time .Odds around 4-1 look very fair value .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 67 ) Wed 20th Nov

2K to 10K Bankroll Challenge returns on Wednesday evening on All Weather from Kempton.

The betting bankroll stands at £3185 (+£1185) stakes remain at £124.00,after short break the betting challenge continues with All Weather Season now kicking into gear .

Moving on to Wednesday we have good looking 1 mile listed race on polytrack from Kempton .

14 Runners declared for Hyde stakes at Kempton .This looks very competitive listed contest .The three main contenders look to be Oh This Is Us ,War Glory & Khuzaam .


OH THIS IS US : 6-Y-0 Bay Horse ,winning 13 out 53 (3 out 8 on All Weather ) Been in fair form on turf this season,including winning class two handicap at Chester in August off mark 105.Has decent record on All Weather,including winning 1M All Weather Championship Final at Lingfield in April.Solid claims returning to All Weather .

WAR GLORY : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 8 out 44 (7 out 18 on All Weather ) Been in excellent form on All Weather ,winning 3 out last 4 starts,including winning class two handicap in good style at Lingfield last time off mark 103 .Takes step up in class,though looks open to further improvement on All Weather .

KHUZAAM : 3-Y-0 Chestnut Colt ,winning 2 out 5 (2 out 3 on All Weather ) Lightly raced sort ,though won both starts here at Kempton over C&D ,including bolting up by 7L in class three handicap last time off mark 89 .Put up 14lb by handicapper for that victory .More improvement likely .Interesting contender .

VERDICT : Khuzaam will have plenty supporters after bolting up last time at Kempton over  C&D,though bookmakers are taking no chances here.Odds around 11-8 look very short for class three winner, stepping up into listed company for first time.

OH THIS IS US should go well returning to All Weather,had some useful form last season ,including winning class two handicap off mark 110 and winning All Weather Mile Championship final at Lingfield in April .Been running credibly  in listed & group company on turf this season .Odds around 15-2 look very fair each-way value .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 66 ) (Sat 26th Oct )

2K to 10K Betting Challange continues on Saturday from Leopardstown in Ireland .

The betting bankroll stands at £3203 (+£1203) after Downforce finished second in Listed Waterford Stakes at Curragh . 

After being very well supported in market 11-2 into 9-4 ,could only mange distant second behind impressive winner Make A Challenge .

No damage done with £2.00 profit on the race.The stakes remain the same £3102 divided by 25 = £124.00 stake .

Moving on to Saturday we have interesting little listed contest from Leopardstown . 8 runners declared for 7f Knockaire Listed stakes on ground described as soft .The three main contenders are Amedeo Modigliani , Laughifuwant & Pincheck .

AMEDEO MODIGLIANI : 4-Y-0 Bay Colt ,winning 1 out 6 ,only victory coming in 8f maiden at Galway as two-year-old .Shown bits and pieces of form this season ,including finishing creditable fourth of 13 in 8f listed race at Cork earlier this month ,though will need bounce back after disappointing effort at Ascot in handicap company last week .

LAUGHIFUWANT :4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 2 out 11 .Shown progressive form this season ,including winning competitive 7f handicap at Galway in August .Also finished creditable third in 8.5f listed race at Cork last time .Will be suited returning to this shorter trip ,both victories coming at 7 furlongs .

PINCHECK : 5-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 4 out 24 .Consistent sort, won 8f group three contest at Leopardstown last season .Been running consistently this season without winning ,including finishing good second at Cork earlier this month in listed company.Obvious claims on form ,though not ran over this shorter trip since 2016 .

VERDICT : Pincheck is clearly the one to beat on official ratings 8lb clear (109) ,though is not the most prolific winner ,only one victory in last two seasons in 15 starts.The drop back in trip has to be question mark ,having not raced over the trip for three years .Odds around 7-4 look short enough with them doubts.

LAUGHIFUWANT should go well returning to his optimum trip ,having appeared not quite get home over the extended mile at Cork last time behind Pincheck.Looks ideally drawn for front runner in stall one .Odds around 10-3 look fair enough value in not the strongest listed contest .
