3.55 Windsor- Desert God – 1 point win 10/1 – (PP/BV/SJ/Betstars)

I don’t know what to say about this one other than he ‘could be anything’ He was a star in India, winning their Derby and numerous other races worth a fair old chunk of cash. I’ll be honest – I don’t know the Indian racing scene very well. I couldn’t tell you if winning the Indian Derby is like winning a C3 at Yarmouth! I have no idea. In that scenario you want a price, and we get that here. He could be rated a few pounds too high, he could actually be very good and hack up. I think you can make excuses for his Dubai runs. The market will no doubt guide. Richard Hughes is in the form of his training career to date- 8/32,15p last 14 days, 14/66,29 last 30. He is 3/28 with flat handicappers returning after 60+ days off but of some interest is 2/4 with those types at Windsor. At 10/1 there is enough juice there to roll the dice, and roll it I shall.


5.00 Windsor- Funky Footsteps – 1 point win – 12/1 (WH/BetF/BV/SJ)

It is hard to resist this one at a double figure price on just the 6th start of her life. Her run the last day was a bit underwhelming but it was her first start of the season and she looked a tad keen through the first part of the race. I also don’t know what her best going is – she won her novice on soft and maybe connections thought that’s what she wanted. Her next two starts on a decent surface didn’t go well but one was a C2 and it could be the trip, on that going, did for her. She looks like she may well stay further than this in time and her breeding would suggest as much. They return to a track where she ran an ok race last season, fading in the last 75 yards over 1/2 furlong further than today. It could be she didn’t pick up in the ground also. Anyway, there is a bit to go on. She is unexposed and could/should be fitter than for last time out. She was 16/1 that day and wasn’t fancied by all accounts. It is hard to say she can’t get involved here. She may prove that she does need a deep surface but at 12s she is worth a dart for me.

Sayem- it would be typical for her to beat me here, and I may have a saver- but on balance I prefer the one above, and at the time of writing was generally around 4 points bigger. I don’t think they know what her best trip is. For me at Leicester two starts ago she looked to be out-stayed over 7f, albeit it was a C4. They then dropped her back in trip where she was sent of fav and didn’t run well. And now they step up back up another 2f to 8f. Trainer/Jockey are 0/15,7p in handicaps, maybe they are due a winner and there could be some pace for JS to aim at. She is unexposed, so nothing would surprise, and is ‘doing something different’ in trying this trip for the first time. We shall see if I have ‘tipped’ the right one. Don’t let those thoughts put you off if you like her chance.

ELITE SQUAD… The flat ‘qualifiers’ are now 20 bets / 5 wins / 6 w|p / 25% sr / +2  .. over the first few days. Winners at 2/1,9/2,9/2,5/2,7/2. With any luck they keep up that SR as if they do that profit figure will only go one way. Early days. 

Jumps, both ‘winter’ and ‘summer’ are 0/10, 1 place.

  1. If you are like me and tired of the flat there is some respite on Sunday,with a good race card at Uttoxeter(including horses we have heard of before) and a mini festival at Perth midweek.

    1. I’ve been looking forward to the Summer Cup. Sadly doesn’t look as simple as last year when half the field was out of the handicap.

          1. Hmm yea have seen those, but that is a small enough sample- and even more so as you say with last year’s race X being out of the handicap. 7 year olds are 3/15 runners, 6 places, +28. That’s interesting enough given no runners etc. I wouldn’t want to be tied to any stats, most are x from 10-20 runners etc.

    2. I agree….The flat gets up my nose mainly…. I love over the sticks….proper racing. lol.

  2. Ive backed Berea Boru @ 25/1 e/w with Bet365 (also went in again @ 20/1) Bowen is already on the “radar” on here with 7 winners from last 17 … on a nice mark with young Bowens claim and wont be an issue if the rain gets in ….

    1. Yet to look at that race Joners, but I no doubt will! BB been on my radar for a while- mainly as he loves heavy – now 5/8,+27 LSP all runs on heavy, 0/15,4p the rest albeit some ok runs on a decent surface. I thought with that record,and his record at Chepstow,that he may be one for the Welsh National one day – I think I backed him in last year’s Scottish National as well when running no sort of race.
      Many a pointing/jockey expert suggest that this ‘younger bowen’ may well end up being a much better jockey than Sean. So, one to watch. Very talented.

  3. Quantity over quality today, but a new month and new micros to follow.

    Some small stake selections – 3.00 Nc I Am Not Here; 3.35Y Instant Attraction; 3.30Nc Higher Power; 7.40 Lp Tennessee Rose; 8.55 Don The New Pharoah.

    Good luck.

    1. I also like I am Not Here in the 15:00 at Newcastle. I am also on Normal Equilibrium in the 16:35 at Chester and have had a small bet on Drumochter in the 16:15 at York given the form of his last race although today might not be the day.

      1. Cracking Franny Norton ride to bail me out and keep things going in the right direction.

  4. What a terrible incompetent ride given to I am not here….It’s fate was sealed a long way out. Grrr.

    1. split some of the AOB and July trainer micro’s between this and my fun account,on this account 6 winners,staked 39pts returns 106.28pts ,up 67.28pts.
      after a slight downturn profit back up to +225.57pts

  5. Nice result for the O’Brien – Heffernan micro 2/2; 7/1 and 8/1. Nice one Josh, I owe you a a few pints.

  6. Team Racing To Profit have had it right off today haha. I’ve lost count of the winners. The only ‘downside’ was not ‘tipping’ Sayem but hope you may have had a saver! AOB angles winners 8/1 10/1 10/1, MJ July +2, 60+ day angle on free post +7 on day. Nick chipping in as did Chris on free post. Saturdays don’t really get better than that. Hope you backed one or two of those. Or more. 🙂 Wallop.

  7. Tomorrow’s post will be up Sunday morning by 11am latest. Nothing else tonight as I am out. Will try not too drink too many bottles of Malbec 🙂 Back Sunday.

    1. Have a good night Josh, been a cracking day with the winners I’ve got from here and a few of my own.

      Enjoy your well deserved bottles of Malbec 😉
