Nothing today…

Nothing today, no system bets etc, a day off.

Jonjo’s chaser was poor yesterday… no excuse there really. I thought they may race him closer to the pace but it does just seem he is moderate over fences at the moment. He didn’t look interested, was never really travelling and always on the back foot. He was well backed but clearly I expected better. The winner was a prominent racer who I had slight stamina doubts about. But he came here race fit and in form. And looking back he hadn’t proved he wouldn’t stay over fences. In the end he may not have needed to as he was just much the best here with everything else floundering. In any case I clearly didn’t make a case for him at 6s. He won like a 1/3 shot. It looked like a canter on the gallops at home for the last 3f or so. He is one to watch at a moderate level as he travels well on the front end and jumps well. Not that he will be much of a price on his next few starts. Moving on. I will update my results for free tips this week, it has been a while and that spreadsheet needs some work.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

  1. Exitas Kempton 14:40 1pt e/w (Use PP for 4 paces if you can)

    Well sadly my holiday is over but am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things horsewise. In a race where a huge portion of the field either look to need the run or has very little chasing experience (not to mention Mad Moose’s heir apparent GWYM) I wanted a horse with both. Two starts ago he easily won a race which has worked out well with the runner up destroying a class 3 field NTO, the 7th winning and 4th and 5th placed NTO. Middleton is in hot form with 4 winners a 2nd and a 3rd from is last 8 runners. Appreciate he is 13lbs higher here however he was rated 136 in the past and has won over hurdles off a mark of 126 so given the removal of the tongue tie seems to have reignited him I think he still has more to offer from his current mark assuming the fall last time out hasn’t left a mark. Particularly with Paddy Power offering 4 places in an 11 runner race I thought 9/1 looked solid. (cue first fence fall)

    1. Welcome back Nick! Hope you had a great time, we all managed to keep the winners ticking over while you were away 🙂 Now time for me to hit the skids and you to step up haha. Gl today.

      1. It was great thanks. Sad to be back but at least we have the jumps season proper to keep me from getting too depressed.

    2. You bugger Nick, you can sod off back on holiday haha, nutting my 10/1 poke on the line, from Members’ post. Thought i had that all bar last hundred yards or so! Bugger. And nothing in yours, typical haha. Well done.

        1. ha yep, well was only a quick flick through and if there wasn’t an obvious front runner, at a price, that I thought may stay there, then I wouldn’t have mentioned the race…and ironically probably chucked £5 at yours! Great game, but I can’t complain based on recent weeks. Maybe a sign for a long over due change in fortunes! (from pos to neg)

  2. Couple for tomorrow (short write ups since it feels like 1:30AM and my eyelids are starting to shut):

    Silvery Moon Pontefract Monday 15:20 1pt e/w-Down to a class 4 having gone close in a class 3 at Haydock beaten by a clearly well treated horse. Has won 4 of his last 5 starts in class 4 races worth less than 6k; has placed in his last 3 starts over course and distance; is drawn well whilst most of the market principles are not; David Allan who gets well with the horse is back for the first time since the Haydock run 9the only other time he has rode him this season he went close in the Carlisle Bell); Both Allan and Easterby have great records at the track both independently and together. Won’t mind the ground and I expect him to go close.
    Oh Land Abloom Plumpton Monday 16:30 1pt e/w-We backed him back in April when he got mugged on the line. (I believe Hugh’s comment was “Oh Land of Injustice” or something close to that) The key to this horse is running fresh and barring his run on soft ground his record off a break of 90+ days reads 1222. They are not expecting much rain so ground should be pretty close to Good tomorrow. Whilst he hasn’t won left handed he has ran well in a number of races so I don’t think that will be an issue. The claimer takes off a handy 7lbs. This is far easier than that race in April and 14s was too big.
