Flat 2017: 60+ days
6.00 Navan – Vastonea
Nursery Handicap (test)
7.35 Carl – Shazzab
The less said about day 1 at Newmarket the better. My attempt to rattle through the card didn’t go as well as Pontefract. Sadly none of the stats really fired and that was me done for. My parents and some of their friends went to the racing today, being locals. As the resident ‘expert’ they obviously wanted ‘tips’. Gulp. I owe them dinner. One of their group played cards so they had the Johnston winner and come the final race they ditched my advice and found the winner themselves. Hurt pride there, but that often happens. And they never go jumps racing! The big meeting notes are due a blip but with any luck the next two days will be better, but we shall see. Hopefully the micros can find a nice priced winner or two.
None of Gosden’s went that well from memory and that may be something to keep an eye on. Appleby’s yard is flying and Varian’s continues to tick along. Following trainers in form at meetings can work so it will be interesting if they bag any more winners.
Chris continued his fine trends streak with another decent winner, 8/1. Why didn’t I take note! Well done.
July Meeting: Day 2
Yesterday was a bit rubbish. Below I have simply repeated the qualifiers/notes from my July Meeting members’ report. I went through previous big meeting notes from Chester/York/Royal A/The Curragh and think there was around +110 points worth of profit to BFSP hidden within the micros/notes from those meetings. This approach has found plenty of 8/1+ winners, and a few 16/1+, 20/1+ and with any luck the July notes may snap into gear over the next two days. Anyway, today’s ‘qualifiers’, to use/ignore how you please…
1.50 – Parfait (m3) / Stamp Hill (m1) (20/1< guide)
