Daily Tips(2017 Sept-Dec: 31/176, +110.75) (2018: 26/257,88p, +26.9) (1 point win bets) Festival Tips (2018: +149.5)

Daily Tips

3.00 Hex – Jack Lamb – 1 point win – 8/1 (gen) UP 25p R4, 6/1>11/4 (strange run, don’t think it cost him but looked to slip/lose action as they were on bend heading for home, just as trying to make a move,didn’t really recover from that. Would have to watch it again. Hasn’t affected the win though I don’t think but poss second, certainly a place. Or i’m imaging it, would have to watch again.

That will be all for today, 09.09,  write up…

It’s a rather poor day’s racing today and not much caught my eye but I thought this one was overpriced here and if he stands up i’d be disappointed if I didn’t get a run for my money. This 6 year old is having the 6th handicap hurdle run of his life and it all came together LTO in a 1st time visor, after 79 days off where he won a shade cosily to my eye. That was 18 days ago and with any luck he may come on for it again, and will have learnt plenty from the experience. This ground could ride fast here today and having won on GF LTO, that won’t be an excuse but may pose a question for a few in here, provided they haven’t over-watered. And Sedgefield is similar enough to Hexham.  Jedd O’Keefe is now 9/43,18p with his hurdle runners in the last 5 years, +16 SP, 4/18,9p over middle distances in NH races and 10/43,22p with all LTO winners. He’s only had 4 runners at the track but one of those won. The horse…well he should be open to further progress and this will be a test for him. He does step up in class here but in December last year he had a couple of decent runs to his name at Doncaster, in ‘winter’ class 4s. Those races have worked out well, especially the latter of those where he came to grief 3 out. He was starting to come under pressure there but I think would have been in the top4/5 had he stayed on his feet. That race was won by Huntsman’s Son who would go on to run well in some decent races and is now rated 135. The second would win again and is now rated 130, the third won, now 122, the fourth would go on to win 4 in a row and reach 116. Those are the horse he was in and around and gives some hope that he could be up to a Hexham C4. It’s a step up in class and on ratings he has a bit to find if the fav runs her race, but there should be more to come from him. He’s clearly had issues I think given how lightly raced he is but hopefully they can have a good run with him now, and now that he’s got his head in front. He races on the pace and 8s seemed generous. He should be a few points shorter than that in my view.

Of the rest…well Vivant is clearly a danger and is due to go up further in future and could be thrown in again. But, she shouldn’t have won at Worcester. I was there that day to see Really Super run (and win, hurrah!) and TimeforBen should have won, Tom Scu furious with himself post race. He didn’t kick on when he should have done. She has franked the form since though and Vivant went on to bolt up at Fontwell. I’m not sure what she beat though. She dictated a steady gallop and the fav went backwards after making an error, having loomed up down the back straight. I don’t think that was a great race and this should tell us more. It’s a different sort of track and possibly the fastest ground she’s run on, and a drop back in trip. Clearly I won’t fall off my seat if she wins again but I thought worth taking on with this one. It’s her third run in 19 days also, and however easy a horse looks to have won the race before, it can still take something out of them.  I can’t work out why The Trigger is so short, but maybe we will soon find out. Maybe he’s worked the house down in these blinkers and will build on his 1/17 record over timber. Happy to leave at that price though. Cromwell has a lurker also but enough questions there. To be feared if that one crashes in price. I thought it was between Vivant and the selection, maybe they’ll be 1-2 the whole way round! It could be Jack Lamb isn’t up to the favs level but I wanted to find out, and 8s seemed worth chancing.

GL with any bets.

  • U.S. Racing Tip Sunday evening – Gulfstream race 11, 11.03 UK time, Heirisall, 5/1 now, 1 point win.

    Good luck.

    • A winner, 5/1 BOG..SP 7/2. Since 29 June +51 points.

      martin colwell 17/09/18 7:59 AM Reply

  • A poor day on Sunday with one winner from four qualifiers mentioned. Tomorrow Tony Carroll must be taking a fleet of horseboxes to Brighton. He has Kirby and Marquand booked for some but our qualifiers are ridden by the excellent Poppy B.

    14.10 – Gracie Stansfield 10/1

    15.10 – Imbucato 5/2

    16.40 – Frantical 4/1

    17.10 – Baltic Prince 7/1

    17.40 – Toni’s a Star 11/2

    Poppy B is 50% win/56% place for Carroll over 12 months, 53/60 in the last 30 days. Statistically we can expect two to win (!) so will leave the final choices to members own opinions.

    Also Tiffin Top in the 20.30 Kempton 4/1, (41/58 30 days)

    Good luck

    • Adam Kirby is a job jockey for Tony Carroll.
      Tony likes Brighton and Bath for his horses,over the years had some good punts at Doncaster in HC’s Flat or NH,and he also likes Goodwood,so his runners are always worth a look in the Hc’s,remember a few years ago won the Stewards Cup with a 33/1 shot which was fancied by the stable,cannot remember the horses name.
      Tony is a very shrewd trainer a great character who makes owners very welcome to his stables,and is very open,anyone wanting a to own a share in a horse or outright ownership,cannot go far wrong joining his stable.
      I am not on commission.

      • Kirby/Carrol interesting… they are 13/48,17p, +36 when teaming up on the turf, but that’s mainly from a few years back… 1/16 in the last 2 years, so less of a job jockey on that front now…but, in the meantime, it looks like the AW runners may be worth some focus, 4/17,5p, +20 in the last 2 years with the AW runners, which makes sense given how good he is around those tracks, esp over winter when he must be one/the best AW jockey riding when plenty go overseas for the winter etc.

        • Cheers Josh for that on Kirby shows how quick things in racing can change,it was 10 years ago when i had a share on one in his stable for 3 years,and like you figures show he was a jockey to watch out for when riding one for Tony then.

          • All interesting stuff. I see a couple of Tony’s being backed this morning. Hope he has a good day!

    • The jockey made all the difference there.
      Danny Cook on the winner looked like he wanted it more whereas Nicol looked less able.
      Slim margins & Cook had it.

  • Hello, well my flat tip went the way of all of my tips on the level, got in the trap and was winding itself up and got pulled out…such is life!! One i do fancy today, but, is an awkward ride is CRUISING BYE in the 14:20 at Worcester. Bit of an oddball, but if they have got this horse back on the straight and narrow he should bolt in here! 13/2 available back 1pt ew.

  • 3.10 Bri : WATCH TAN = only runner there for the trainer (G.Baker) This has been is m.o. the last couple of Brighton meetings 🙂

  • 900 Amy Murphy runs Approaching Menace upped to 12f and the price has halved overnight on BF. The dam brings stamina and Kempton form into the equation so the backing seems based on expected improvement in this 0-60.

    chrisrees 17/09/18 10:30 AM Reply

    • Hmm, good spot that Chris. Interesting one. Is a shocker of a race and she’s in form. Horse runs as if will relish this step up. Amy doesn’t bet herself, but a few of the lads in the yard do, and they had a good go at Sankissed when winning at big prices the other week, one of them had 50EW track side when was pushed back out to 25s or so and that was enough to send it back into 14s across the board. They know what they have. And Amy won’t be keeping many in the yard at that basement level for long if they don’t show much, and she’ll want to get that one up the ratings. A definite eye on improving the quality and if that one doesn’t start winning soon probably won’t be in the yard this time next year. Best of luck.
