Congratulations and a big well done to Colin who earlier in the week tipped up Matthew Fitzpatrick in the comments (always worth a read!!) at 30/1 to win the European Masters… which he did! Top effort. By the comments in the Members’ post, and no doubt to follow below, it sounds like some of you had a little nibble.
Big race trends…
Well I think they did ok over the three races, and I hope you may have applied the Curragh ones on Sunday… (i was away/busy so couldn’t, apologies) but looking back… focusing on those 12/1<, aged 3-5… that left 5 horses. 4-21k LTO (they all failed that) 8-12 to 9-6 on back… that left three… Ice Age / Celebrate / George Bowen… Celebrate ran at Curragh LTO which was a negative…anyway, Ice Age won…12s>15/2 I think. So, at least they worked. They also found Sepal at Haydock, so 2 from 3. Decent enough.
Flat 2017: 60+ Day Trainers
2.30 Listowel- Lustful (any odds, 25/1, best)
Trainer/Jockey Combo – Live Test
2.45 NA – Moorlands Jack (9/1<)
Today… I thought I would highlight/curse all Members’ qualifiers from Perth…. I am not 100% sure Green Zone will stay in the 3.05, much better at shorter…(although only one run over 24f)but knowing my luck he will be the only winner… I thought you could give some sort of chance to the other three, and with any luck at least one of them wins.. or our only winners of the day will be at Brighton, where there is a solid contender in the 4.25. One of those below is an Elite Squad ES qual, which is one of the strategies that I apply to this ‘starting set’ of qualifiers. Backing all those in the 10/1 – 25/1 range on morning prices would have made you very wealthy in 2017 to date, and hopefully Instingtive can add to those profits…
3.05 – Green Zone (all Hc’s, HcH) H3 I1 5/1
3.35 – Master Dee (all Hc’s) 14,30 H3 I3 ES 3/1
4.05 – Instingtive (all Hc’s, HcH, micro dist) H3 14/1
4.35 – The Clock Leary (HcCh) 14,30 H3 I3 G3 4/1
GL with any bets today.
Tomorrow I will have news of an opportunity to own a share in an exciting Juvenile Hurdle prospect, now in training with Amy Murphy. More on that from Tuesday.
