AUGUST QUALIFIER...There is a qualifier below. The research post can be found on the Home page, top left hand corner, and also in the Free Trainer/Systems Page.
LAST CHANCE…. Today is your last chance to try Geegeez Gold before the prices go up tomorrow. You can take a 7 day trial for £1 below… (and be assured of the cheaper price IF you stay on. It could be the best £1 you ever spend…) (and if you want to ask a question about what it is like, fire away…I,and a few readers are signed up disciples and will no doubt help answer any queries you have)
STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
I think the Carlisle ‘Ladies’ night is a superb idea for the riders but it isn’t a card I plan to bet on really. Our old ‘friend’ Pivotman turns up here in the 7.45. There isn’t much profile wise on the flat that I could say to recommend him as a ‘tip’ – various questions including the distance (0/11,2p under 10f on turf) and the class.(0/16,2 p this level of C4 or above,albeit the places at C2 level) He doesn’t win very often on the turf but is clearly in some sort of form and is 8s. He may or may not respond to the headgear again.

SPRINT HANDICAP TESTING ZONE
None today… but some thoughts…
Windsor…has a decent sprint but having read the report on the BHA website who knows what the ground will be. They are due showers in the afternoon that are likely to turn very heavy. So, they may miss it and it stays as it is, or it could be anything up to Heavy, depending on what they get. A bit too much guesswork for me.
Ripon- the 3.45 is a decent little race. I think I like SnapShots WON – 7/2 (after R4) but he is 9/2, 5s, which may be ok and at the latter price could be an EW bet to nothing. I think he could lead all the way here. I am unsure if the Johnston horse will be quick enough (but he is a keen sort with Fanning on who stays further) and likewise Munfallet may not be good enough to lead. Ripon are also due some rain, on watered turf – and again there is some guesswork there. SnapShots won’t mind what it does. The return to 6f is the key to his chances here but while lightly raced he still has to go and prove it at this level. He has gone very close in a C3 CD before. I will just sit this one out I think, and for educational purposes hope that SnapShots bolts up. Nothing at a bigger price stood out- Johnny Cavagin is interesting but would need them to go very very fast on this track and to pick up the pieces. That is a slight possibility but he will need plenty to go right. No Pontefract hill here.
