STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
‘TEST’: When you read ‘test’ that indicates my attempts to dabble in sprint handicaps (5-6f) of all grades,(from scratch,those without trends etc to help) trying to hunt out some decent priced winners and long term profit. I do not have any long term record in these races and I really do need to develop some more strings to my bow when it comes to the flat. So, inspired by Gary Priestley, I will have a go, and hopefully in time develop some skills in this area where they can become ‘tips’. Obviously you can do as you wish with this information but a ‘test’ horse won’t be counted in any official results. In part it will be a process of learning, discovery, mistakes and the odd bit of success hopefully. And we may as well go on that journey together. This blog is here for a good for years to come so hopefully in time I can get it right! Hopefully in the remaining 4 months of the season we will make some progress. I will record results to 1 point EW. I should add that I am not backing these with 1 point EW of my own money until I demonstrate some ability to make a profit…
Running total: -2 points…
TEST: 5.10 Ayr – Go Go Green 12/1 – 1 pt EW
Well you never know what you are going to get from a Jim Goldie horse but at the prices this one catches the eye. Mainly that is because in recent months, when dropping into C5, he has run rather well. This looks to be his level these days and it is that run 4 starts ago that catches the eye – pretty much in identical race conditions he just failed by a head. A repeat of that run should ensure he out-runs these odds, having ran in higher grades the last three races. That run was off effectively OR69 with the claim and while you have to go a long way back to find a win from this mark or higher, he should be competitive. It may be that he needs some more help in time but that run showed he retains some ability. He has yet to win at the track from 21 goes but has gone very close on a few occasions and clearly handles the track. The jockey booking is interesting also – more so in the sense that Tudhope is 3/3 on Blue Sonic and I would like to think he had the choice here, which could be some sort of indication. And of course, having Tudhope onside is never a bad thing. He handles the ground and that is something a few in here have that questions to answer. The likes of Vallarta and Inexes have done their winning on good to firm, as has Keenees Point. A few of these have yet to win at C5 level also, looking like C6 horses. As I said, a repeat of that run 4 starts ago, should ensure he out-runs these odds and should hopefully see him in the mix.
No other angles etc of note. That will be all for Sunday.
