Flat 2017: 60+ Days
7.35 Newb – Ouja
From the Members’ Club…
Bet of The Day… (test) (Flat: 5/42,17p, -3.9) (Jumps: 9/61, +26.5) (total: 14/103, +22.6)
3.20 Donc – Shenanigans – 1 point win – 15/2 / 7/1 2nd 7/2, head – painful viewing.
Of those in the 6/1+ range and that are in the unexposed/more to come category, this one looks most interesting to my iffy ‘flat’ eyes. The first thing to note is the form of Roger Varian- he must be the hottest trainer around at the moment and anything he runs should be noted. In the last 14 days he is 11/33 which is decent, but 25 have won or placed. Safe to say they are going well. The horse – well this one is having her third handicap start and her first run since Varian hit his hot streak. She is going to show more in handicaps at some point. She moves back up in trip here also- so ‘doing something different’ from her most recent runs- which is my new (old) catchphrase. This extra furlong or so could bring out more. She returns to turf which may be a positive or in any case has run well at Doncaster before. Varian has also booked the inform Tudhope- most of the ‘big boys’ will be at Newmarket and I suspect he is in the top 3/top jockey riding at the course this afternoon. The horse is an ES qual and some way clear of the rest on Geegeez Speed figures. The last day she was trapped wide for a way and will need to improve for that run. It could be that the Fanshawe horse is much the best and will beat her again- but she does have to go and prove it on turf, which she may do. But that makes Evens look short enough. Donny is no Kempton.
July Meeting Day 1
The following horses are derived from various July Meeting stats and caught my eye for one reason or another. This approach usually goes one of two ways so we shall see! No doubt i’ll give back plenty of my Ponty winnings and fun stakes are advised… (EW for those where price allows may be the safe choice…)
2.25 – It Don’t Come Easy / US Navy Flag
3.00- Unabated / Love Dreams (Poets Society and Brian The Snail hit a few stats also)
3.35 – Wings of Desire (Appleby is going to win 1 or more today no doubt and I’ve backed none, his looks strong in here but too short for me. And I had a nibble on this one LTO)
4.05 – Maybride (again on short side) / Wild Impala (Appleby and Palmer horses also interesting but can’t back them all…)
4.35 – Ice Age (EW)
5.05 – Tricorn
We shall see how that little lot gets on.

(My Big Meeting Trainer Notes and the new Elite Squad have really brought the Flat season to life. The latter is +31 points up in just 22 days since inception and long may it continue. The big meeting notes have found numerous big priced winners already this year so now is a good time to have a look at the link above)
