Well Tuesday’s racing looks as poor as Monday’s and clearly there must be some big festival or something looming on the horizon!
There is nothing that stands out from a ‘pace’ perspective at all really, let alone in races I would want to play in.
The 4pm Taunton is the most interesting race of the day for me. Every runner has something to prove however it is Mrs Jordon, lurking at the bottom, who interests me. She looks to be crying out for this step up in trip by 2 furlongs or so. None of the more experienced chasers can be trusted in this and a lot of them are in awful form with plenty to prove. Milosam loves the track and will run his race again but I cant entertain him at his prohibitive odds. I keep getting my fingers burnt with horses who are ‘consistently placed’. I should maybe learn my lesson and realise that they often find one or two too good for a reason, and are therefore best left alone! Those with experience are arguably still unexposed and it is a poor race where you are guessing a bit. But at the threat of having a blank punting day (i have nothing system wise) I have parted with 1 point on Mrs Jordon at 5/1. We shall see how she does tomorrow but I would hope she is thereabouts.
I am also interested (no bet as yet) in how Auden gets on in the 3.40 Southwell. He is 0/4 over CD, is clearly not fancied given his price. However I have been tracking the jockey/trainer/track combo who have been very consistent since 2010 with a 25% SR which they have maintained every year. One year was a profit of 25 points with the others more around 5 points profit over the year. Anyway, a pair to keep an eye on when teaming up on the sand.
