FREE EURO’s MAGAZINE…
Some of you may have seen my email on Sunday. The chaps who produced the entertaining/informative 32 page Cheltenham Festival magazine are doing the same for the Euro’s.
Inside you will find:
⦁ In-depth analysis of all 24 teams, including a rundown of all the key players to keep an eye out for.
⦁ Their Tipster, Joe’s, top tournament picks – an array of cracking bets that could be worth a cheeky punt at BIG odds!
⦁ A comprehensive profile of the managers looking to mastermind their side to victory.
So, it should be a good read. You can sign up at the link below. No catches – just tell them where to send it – which they will do in the next few days when complete.
(I don’t think they have’t sent it out yet, but I am assuming they will do today or tomorrow given the opening game is on Friday!)

STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
8.15 – Ham – Riponian 10/1 -(BV/PP/Coral/WH) UP 7/1 (looked good for a long way,albeit sent for home plenty soon enough!) I am hoping this one may do what the same as my all the way winner at Pontefract – namely get an uncontested lead and never be passed. He is the only out and out front runner in the race (albeit there is a Johnston horse in here but he is drawn wide,he can front run but can also tuck in) and is drawn in the ideal spot. But, you do need more than just that. His profile shows up well – indeed he is a course and distance winner under this jockey off 48 (he had 3lb claim then but he won comfortably) and he does get on well with Joey Haynes. He is the only jockey to have ridden him to victory 2/4 in handicaps – and he rides this track very very well – 12/43 +70 sp in recent years. Plenty in here have unproven stamina for this mile trip and a few are above their last winning marks. The horse also looks to be in decent enough form – that 3rd, where he hung wildly right for most of the way, was decent considering that – and he bumped into the Keatley horse who at that time had about 3 tonnes in hand. The ground is the slight niggle – but I don’t think he has proved he won’t handle it yet – on paper it says he is 0/5,0 places on good to firm. Most of those he was 25/1+, and he ran well over 10f at Newcastle on it once, fading in the final couple of furlongs where stamina may have been the issue. Trainer form is also a niggle but this horse ran well enough 16 days ago to suggest he is in good nick and she never bangs in the winners – always hard with yards like this to know if an issue, or just a question of not having the horses. If the horse wasn’t in form I would be more concerned. In any case he is a double figure price. He should lead for quite a bit of the trip here, so we should have some fun at least. (Bushtiger goes for Ruth Carr here and he got an interesting ride LTO – doesn’t qualify in June system this time as same trip as LTO – but he was held right out the back for an age, found trouble on the inside and ran on a bit- looked to me like a ‘this wasnt the day ride/we are still working him out ride’. Interesting to see what he does today)
That is all for today. I am spending most of the day neck deep in Royal Ascot research – I have found some exciting angles for O’Brien/Gosden/Stoute already.
NOTE: I know I need to get the summer AW guide done. I WILL POST KEMPTON’s profile around lunchtime today – I will research it this morning – and you AW fans can then use it for this evening’s card if you so wish.
