I am posting this at 01.26 after a rather arduous 7 hour journey to Dartmouth from my home near Newmarket. I am here for for a good friend’s ‘passing out’ ceremony (which is from 9am) from the Navy and as such the systems will be the only content tomorrow. I am just about to post up some trends for Saturday and I will be looking at the Ladbroke Hurdle for my Daily Punt blog post. There are what I would call some ‘killer stats’ which will hopefully help highlight the winner- or help you find the winner. There should be some more content up here for Friday’s racing and for Saturday.
I think the issues with the blog may now finally be resolved but we shall see ( I was unable to post the below earlier before I left)
Handy Andy near enough halved in price and like a lot of his recent runs went well for the first circuit before fading. It was worth chancing at the odds but I cant see myself backing him again. Its A Steal touched 5s before drifting back out near the off which turned out to be a negative. He travelled into it well enough and looked promising at one stage before simply plugging on. Whether he needed the run and/or just wasnt good enough to get closer I am not sure. The winner is clearly going places over fences and looks likely to match or better some decent hurdles form. I though he was short enough at 9/2 this morning and that he may be found for jumping experience in a big field, but he was too classy for them. Red Devils Lad looks like he has improved again, taking them on at a decent pace. He will no doubt come on a tad for the run and when going left handed looks like a handicap chaser to keep onside, especially if able to dominate. Rebecca Curtis is starting to fire now, and Pipe/Scudamore are now 5/16, 9 places in handicaps in the last 14 days. Back to form after a dodgy November.
I am still struggling for a bit of consistency in these 3m+ chases/tips but will continue to work to improve that. Th shortlisting is working well enough in my own mind, but a couple more winners over last few weeks would have been useful. Onwards.
2.20 Exet – Delores Delightful (12/1< – guide,has had a ‘big winner’ previously)
2.10 Tow – Golan Dancer (14/1<)
