Well Monday capped off a rather good few days. Having nabbed the winner of the Hennessy in the first race preview I have written for a while on the blog I manged to follow up with a decent 8/1 ‘Pace’ winner today.
Firstly Alright Benny – sometimes you are very bullish and you just get left with egg on your face – this was one of those selections. I am not going to come up with an excuse and was happy with the bet. Just one of those races where the jockey never looked happy. Maybe he didnt like being taken on up front – I dont know but either way it was a poor performance. Move on.
Thankfully the ‘master of pace’ as I will call him, Joe Fanning, gave his fellow riders another lesson from the front.Even if I say so myself my analysis was much better than the tripe they were spouting on ATR. The race panned out pretty much as expected and Fanning kicked turning for home- it was a winning move and the fillies’ stamina ensured she lasted all the way to the line. A decent 7 point profit day for the blog, taking the running total, since Thursday 2oth November (8 betting days) to…
4 winners from 11 selections and a profit of = 18.5 points profit – £185 for those betting £10 per point, or £370 if you are betting £20s. Not a bad return after just 8 days and one i will be trying hard to replicate in the next 8!
So, onto tomorrow…
Firstly there is nothing much that screams at me but there is another Fanning front runner that catches the eye and another at Southwell…
Run On Sterling 11/1 – 1 point win
Run On Sterling has taken a drift in the market which is never a good sign but he makes his handicap debut and there are enough signs that the step up in trip will help. On his most recent runs he has ran up with the pace and led and I am hoping he does the same again. The fav is clearly well fancied although with the form of the yard and a slight stamina doubt in my mind (esp if he has received more of his mothers genes) I thought he was worth taking on. If the selection appreciates the step up in trip he could cause a surprise from the front. In a day where not much stood out I thought he was worth a bet at the odds. There are a few unexposed types in this race trying the trip for the first time so who knows what could happen. Time will tell!
You can find a video below of how I came to chose Run On Sterling using the bit of kit that has fundamentally changed my betting and helped win me over 570 points this year, betting 1 point and 2 point level stakes…. The Run on Sterling Race is on about 8 minutes 30 seconds so you can just jump to that if you wish 🙂 But the bits before are worth a watch.

Spinaminnie – 7/2 1 point win –
A Joe Fanning front runner for his boss in a very weak race. This filly has been contesting C4 maidens and I found it interesting that they drop her into a C6 median auction maiden. She has qualified for handicaps and I wonder if they just want a win next to her name for future breeding purposes. So a drop down in class and the step back up in trip should help. I expect Fanning to dictate from the front and he can see off the fav who is drawn wide. The stable are just starting to come back into form so hopefully we have a live one here.
4/11 = +18.5 points
