Saturday 22nd November Claiming Stakes Bet

Apologies for the lack of posts over the last two months,after having to deal with the sudden loss of my mother .My mind hasn't really been on racing as you can imagine and decided to take a complete break from the blog .

Dealing with a bereavement is never easy ,especially when it's cancer related ,the last few weeks have been difficult, with so much too sort out ,though you have too move on and try get back to normal .

Now seems good time to get back to the blog, with winter All Weather racing now under way hopefully we can have profitable few weeks before the turn of the year .

On Saturday we have two All Weather cards, at Lingfield & Wolverhampton .Going concentrate on the 1 mile claiming stakes on Wolverhampton's evening fixture .

9 runners go to post for claiming stakes over the extended mile on the tapeta .Not bad contest for this grade, the three main contenders .Naoise , Tee It Up Tommo & Toto Skyllatchy 

NAOISE :Formerly trained in Ireland by Jim Bolger, winning three times .Changed hands for 9,000 guineas at Newmarket sales in July .Had looked disappointing on turf for Ollie Pears ,this summer ,though bounced back to form winning back to back handicaps over C/D at Wolverhampton on the tapeta.Has bit to find on official ratings ,though in top form and has good record on All Weather surfaces (2132152811)

TEE IT UP TOMMO : Been in good form this year winning five times on poly track,including winning class 5 handicap over C&D in March by 5 lenghs  .Bit disappointing  last time when only 5th in claimer over C&D on the new tapeta surface .Well treated at the weights ,though has to prove himself on this surface .

TOTO SKYLLATCHY :Returned to form in September winning 1 mile seller at Redcar & bolted up by 6 lenghs in 7 furlong handicap at Southwell earlier this month.Fair second last time at Southwell over 1 mile off mark 71,though was very disappointing over C&D in October on tapeta.Having first start for David O' Meara .

VERDICT : Tee It Up Tommo is best in at the weights ,and has good record on All Weather . 6 out 14 , though was well beaten favourite in similar race last time over C&D on tapeta .Odds around  3-1 make no appeal 

Strictly at the weights NAOISE has bit to find,though has looked natural on the new tapeta surface winning both starts over C&D under promising 3lb claimer Jacob Butterfield.Should get the race run to suit ,with plenty pace in the race . Odds around 5-1 look fair each-way value .

Of the others Toto Skyllatchy has been in good form in handicap company on fibresand at Southwell and should be thereabouts , not badly treated at the weights, though has to prove he can handle this surface .

£50.00 EACH-WAY @ 5-1 BET365* & BETVICTOR* 
(THIRD SP 5-2 LOSS £100.00 ) 
* Seven ran with four non runners,only two places for each-way bets* :-(


  1. Annoying with the non runners making it two places. It's often a similar story when a favourite is withdrawn or doesn't go in the stalls.

  2. Very frustrating Jason,especially when you get four non runners making it seven runner race .I guess that's the problem with 48 hour decs .

  3. Jerry,

    Condolences on your loss. May you find the ability to smile and remember the good times spent with her and always keep her in your thoughts.


  4. Thanks Jake ,appreciate your kind words .
