Well I continue to struggle on the tipping front- no run from Fox Appeal and sadly that was predictable after the first fence when Jacob decided to sit far too back and just let the horse jump the fences. The one fence he booted him into, he flew it. Very poor ride for me albeit there is clearly some pocket talk there! Atrocious. He made a niggly mistake at nearly every fence and while he isn’t the best jumper, he isn’t that bad. Lavelle should call up Paddy Brennan to boot him all the way round. He travelled well in between the fences and there was some money. He could quickly become a cliff horse but he is very well handicapped now. All those errors caught up with him in the end. Surely they will find a race for him. Potters Cross looked interesting pre race but I thought he may be a tad too inexperienced over fences and didn’t expect him to be quite as comfortable at the top end in a big field like this. Credit to horse and trainer, he jumped well on the whole and Curtis’ team are to be feared at the moment. We shall see how that form works out moving forwards. A decent run from The Good Skin who stayed on well and could need further than this to be seen at his best.
Unlike the Flat where I couldn’t tip a thing but also at the same time there were not many winners anywhere else on the blog thankfully the micro system/jumps angles et are doing ok and throwing up a few winners… two at 6/1 and 7/1 to lift the mood, among a few losers also.
The TTP Jumps Notes post had a decent enough day. Members were pointed towards Civil Unrest (my main bet of day on that post) (7s) and Ballyoptic (7s/8s>9/2) from the stats/my views and hopefully I put them off a few losers also. (backed a couple of other losers as well) So, Fox Appeal was a low, but thankfully a few nice winners dotted around and with any luck some of you may have come out in front from Saturday’s posts. I will get that 1.5 points back with a little bit of interest on him before Christmas hopefully.
