Trainer/Jockey Combo – Live Test
3.10 NA- Tea In Transvaal (12/1<)
From today’s Members’ post…
Bet of The Day – (what looks most interesting to my eyes from all the TTP stats qualifiers)
3.30 Thirsk – Pomme De Terre – 1 point win – 8/1 (Betfred) 15/2 (gen)
This one should relish the forecast rain and does need it to arrive as expected. If this has any cut come race time he seems to have a decent chance to my eye. He is 2lb below his last win which was a decent enough big field C4 sprint at York. He returned on unsuitably fast ground the last day but has come down a couple of pounds and now drops in class also, into this C5. He is 2/4 with OR 71-80, 0/5,0p 81+. So, he is now handicapped again to go well. The blinkers also return which haven’t been worn for a little while. He is 2/6,3 places in those, 0/6,0p all other headgear/no headgear. He appears to have ideal conditions here and is doing a few things differently from recent runs, namely class drop/headgear change. And he should get his ground. He looks a bet to me at those odds. The one niggle is the draw in box 1. But the stalls are in the centre today and the horse in stall 4 likes to get on with it and should toe him into the race. The yard is ticking along and with any luck he can break my mini drought.
That is all for today.
