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 .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 65) (Sun 13th Oct )

2K to 10K Betting challenge continues on Sunday at Curragh in Ireland .

The betting bankroll stands at £3201 (+£1201) ,after Laurens finished disappointing seventh  in Sun Chariot at Newmarket ,dropping away tamely in closing stages .Having been well supported in market 4-1 into 5-2 ,that was really poor effort on her final start before retirement .

The stakes drop to £128.00 Betting bank £3201 divided by 25 =£128.00 stake .

Moving on to Sunday we have decent looking Listed sprint from Curragh.10 runners declared for 6f Waterford Stakes on ground described as soft .The three main contenders are Flight Risk , Downforce & Make A Challenge .

FLIGHT RISK : 8-Y-0 Chestnut Gelding ,winning 6 out 45.Been in good form this season winning three times ,including winning two listed races and group three contest.Returned to winning ways last time ,winning 7f listed race at Cork .No easy task under 5lb penalty.Also Drop to 6f may not be ideal (0 out 14) over trip .

DOWNFORCE :  7-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 6 out 32.Useful sort on his day,especially on testing ground.Not won since April 2018 ,though looked to be returning to top form ,finishing creditable second to Speak In Colours over C&D in G3 Renaissance stakes .Will be suited by this drop in class .

MAKE A CHALLENGE : 4-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 5 out 13.Been in excellent form this season,winning five handicaps,including winning by impressive 6L at Curragh last time ,off mark 94 .Going Up 15lb in the weights for that victory .Takes step up into listed company for first time ,though looks very interesting contender .

VERDICT : DOWNFORCE should go well after finishing good second in stronger G3 race at Curragh two weeks ago.Looks to have optimum conditions here,with last five victories coming on soft/ heavy ground,including winning listed race at Navan last season on heavy.Odds around 11-2 look solid each-way value.

Make A Challenge looks big danger ,after romping home by 6L in 20 runner handicap at Curragh last time.Looks very progressive sort ,though odds around 5-4  look poor value for horse taking step up in class .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 64 ) (Sat 5th Oct )

2K to 10K Betting challenge returns on Saturday at Newmarket.

The betting bankroll stands at £3335 (+£1335) stakes drop slightly to £134.00 .Not the best run of results recently,though hopefully get back on track before the end of flat season.

Moving on to Saturday we have group one action from Newmarket ,with good looking fillies & mares mile contest .

9 runners declared for group one Sun Chariot stakes from Newmarket on ground likely ride good/soft .This looks competitive contest, the three main contenders look to be Laurens , Hermosa & Iridessa .

LAURENS : 4-Y-0 Bay filly ,winning 8 out 16 .Useful filly winning six group one races ,including winning this race last year.Will need to bounce back after poor run at Leopardstown last time ,though had previously been in good form, including winning G1 Prix Rothchild at Deauville in July .Solid claims with ideal conditions .

HERMOSA : 3-Y-0 Bay filly ,winning 4 out 12 .Decent Irish filly ,including winning 1000 guineas over C&D at Newmarket in May .Also finished good second in Matron Stakes at Leopardstown last time .Should be thereabouts ,though very best form on quicker ground .

IRIDESSA : 3-Y-0 Bay filly ,winning 4 out 10 .Not the most consistent Irish filly ,though very useful on her day ,including winning G1 Pretty Polly stakes & Matron Stakes at Leopardstown last time.Obvious claims if repeating that form ,though not always reliable .

VERDICT : Last years winner LAURENS will need bounce back after rare poor effort at Leopardstown last time on quick ground ,though has excellent record at Newmarket over C&D (121). Will also be better suited by this easier ground (4 out 6 ) on good/soft or soft.Odds around 4-1 look very fair value .

2K to 10K Betting Challenge (Bet No 63 ) (Sat 7th Sep )

2K to 10K Betting challenge continues on Saturday at Haydock Park.

The betting bankroll stands at £3475 (+£1475 ) after Dan's Dream finished unplaced at Tipperary in Fairy Bridge Stakes.After being well supported in the market 9-2 into 11-4,could only finish disappointing seventh,finding very little in the straigh for £144.00 loss .The stakes drop down to £140.00

Moving on to Saturday we have group one action,with good  sprint from Haydock .11 runners declared for 6f Sprint Cup on ground described as soft .

This looks quite competitive race,though with the withdrawal of Advertise & Ten Sovereigns not highest quality group one sprint contest of the season.The three main contenders look to be Brando , Dream Of Dreams & Waldpfad .

BRANDO : 7-Y-0 Chestnut gelding ,winning 9 out 35.Consistent sort,including finishing second in this race last year.Returned to form last time,finishing good second in 6.5f  G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville in August.Goes well on soft ground .Should be thereabouts,place claims .

DREAM OF DREAMS : 5-Y-0 Chestnut entire ,winning 5 out 23.Been in form this season winning twice,though produced career best effort at Royal Ascot in June ,finishing excellent head second behind Blue Point in G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes .Will need bounce back after poor run in July Cup ,though has ran poorly in last three starts at Newmarket .Interesting contender returning to Haydock .

WALDPFAD : 5-Y-0 German Bay entire ,winning 7 out 15 .Shown big improvement this season since dropping down to 6 furlongs,including winning the G3 Hackwood stakes at Newbury in July ,beating Khaadem in good style giving that rival 8lb.Looks open to further improvement over this trip .Each-way claims .

VERDICT : Course and Distance winner DREAM OF DREAMS should go well if reappeating his Royal Ascot Form ,that fast finishing (head) second to Blue Point in G1 Diamond Jubilee stakes looks very decent form.Has good record on ground good/soft or softer (02211212) .Odds 5-1 look very fair e-w value .

Of the others impressive Stewards Cup winner Khaadem will have his supporters,though was soundly beaten by German raider Waldpfad at Newbury in July .Bookmakers are taking no chances with odds around 11-4, looking very poor value for horse taking big step up in class.
