I won’t dwell on Bashford Ben’s run for too long. It was decent enough, we got a run for our money and he was staying on again near the end. John in the comments thought he may be outpaced/need further – I didnt think he would at that track, against that opposition -but the way he finished suggested that he may well have been! He got that right, I got that wrong.
He got an easy lead – inconclusive whether he did too much- so no complaints. They were a mediocre bunch and maybe he is not as good as he once was. Hopefully a return to Carlisle over 26f or further may see him back in the winners enclosure. I won’t give up on him just yet. (the cliff is edging nearer!)
Still, +90 points for the tips in 2016 and we are still in profit this week, just!
My Stats/Angles of interest trial continues to be dire! The All-Weather is far from a paradise for me as well as all the other race types/ways in! Some thinking to do there.
BIG RACE PREVIEW
Ibis Du Rheu – 1 point win – 5/1 (PP – WH – WH are NRNB)
I have previewed this for the Daily Punt Blog, you can read all the stats, trends and my reasoning at the link below…
NO TIPS today. Both C4 handicap chases are poor and not ones I want to get stuck into, having had a quick glance. Catterick has good to soft ground, which I had forgotten existed. When the weather does dry up a lot of form will go out the window etc and it may pay to be a bit more cautious, esp weekdays where there are not big race trends to help.
3.15 Chep – Forgivienne (10/1<) DNQ
3.50 Chep – Lava Lamp (10/1<) DNQ
4.00 Catt – The Cobbler Swain (any odds) UP 4/1
4.20 Chep – Moorlands Mist (10/1<) UP 5/2

I trust all of you who engage with the blog, who may profit from my ramblings (tips/stats/free reports/pointers), and enjoy what you read, to be honest and donate an amount, as and when, that suits you. I want to create an inclusive blog that excludes no-one, however much you engage with it, whatever your experience and however much you bet, if anything at all.
Some of you have inquired about setting up a monthly donations option that you can sign up to and forget about. This is possible and I will post up some links over the weekend.
That is all for today.
