1.10 Towc – Belmount – 5/1 2nd, 5/1

Ah, well, that looked good until they entered the home straight where sadly for me the headgear change has worked for the winner, no problem taking him on, or being with mine. That is the straightest the winner has ever jumped I think, maybe a slight lack of race fitness costing him there. Belmount jumped superbly and he won’t have any problem making all in a weak chase at some point soon, i’d be interested in his next run, price allowing. 

I’ve convinced myself that in the context of this race 5/1 is fair enough and I am not quiet sure why he is a bigger price than the Dickin horse. This one is unexposed over fences and doing a few things differently… he drops in trip, drops in class, and Tom C takes over…also runs at a different track. I have watched his last race and his run here in a beginners chase and I actually think he is a nice jumper of a fence – that UR LTO…he took off too early, jumped the fence big, and landed steeply. It was the sort of error novices make, a bit like Yanworth’s …albeit he is no Yanworth! In this class, against this mob, he may find he has more time to measure his fences…that mistake was when rattling down hill at Plumpton, a tricky fence. They will race him prominently I think and he has as many questions to answer as everything else i this. I am quite happy taking on the fav and I would struggle to ‘tip’ anything else in this. Maybe he will need the run but DB can ready them after a break anyway, so departing early LTO may have no impact on fitness, we shall see. He ticks similar boxes to that McCain winner that I dodged at 7s, hopefully this one can win. Don’t let my focus on him put you off the other one if you are a systematic S2 backer..i would be surprised if he won given recent form, but not in total shock… he will bounce back around here one day.


Of the rest… well, I don’t like being negative… a test for my head vs strategies if I am being honest… I thought on paper the biggies looked up against it and the rest looked too short against their chance/questions.  So, time will tell on that front. With any luck I have misjudged one or two there, with my subjective eyes. I will just mention Justice Knight in the 3.20….  only because when looking through the race i noted that there is every chance he gets an easy lead here… ground a slight unknown but they must think it is safe. Do with that pace information as you please.



Towcester Video ‘Preview


Those that looked interesting to me, at a glance, and maybe worth a closer look… (these are NOT tips, pointers, if you are going racing..)

12.40 – Linehall 2nd 

1.10 – the two stats picks above, in what is a shocker of a race 2nd UP 

1.40 – Bastien WON 5/1  / Now McGinty UP

2.10 – urgh…I struggled through this… Oi Oi and Kikimoru at prices, small track side stabs UP UP 

2.40 – Biscuit UP / Luck of Legion UP / The Crazed Moon 2nd

3.10 – one of top 3 should win this…all got questions, on price, Ben Pauling’s WON 7/2  – not a race to go mad on! Maybe time for another beer come this race…

3.40 – Involve UP / Thistledonicely WON 10/1>17/2 


A few yards are ‘in form’ (Geegeez pointers) here and most of their runners worth a second glance, the likes of Kim Bailey, S Edmunds, O Greenhall and H Oliver. (cue Hobbs/King/Pipe/Twister winning everything! 🙂 )

  1. Marjus Quest Taunton Thursday 15:20 1pt e/w-looked a solid enough bet. Has been running consistently including a 2nd to a subsequent winner in a class 4 back in August when Bowen was last on board. Is best when returning within 20 days (4/17,9p) including 13P23 during his last 5 handicap hurdles runs when returning from such a break (153 when returning within 7 days). Has a 1st and a 3rd from 2 runs at the track. Should be able to lead or race prominently and at 11s with 4 places I thought he was solid.

    I have also chucked £5e/w on Bosham in the 19:45 e/w at a massive price given he has been dropped to a very low mark and is one of the few pace angles here even if he hasn’t showed much form recently.

    1. No problem, first part worth watching with a notepad…flick through HRB cards focusing on the trainers…touch wood you may not go wrong by homing in on a few of their runners…well, it worked fairly well for the Lingfield notes, so we shall see. As always, if you like something, never let anything I say put you off!

  2. Beau Des Brizais runs in the 1.50 Taunt- I think he was a ‘notebook’ horse from LTO, or mentioned anyway… hampered that day at the wrong moment and the horse he chased home has advertised the form…interested to see how he goes…in truth as yet I haven’t decided if 4s is a good price or not! But with any luck he runs a decent race.

    1. I do like a second at the moment, 5s was good enough for me to have a go, thought he was winning that all the way until after the last! Ah. Winner dictated, don’t think can critique ride, his instructions would have been to settle/get him jumping, had every chance if good enough, which he wasn’t on the day.

  3. Thanks for the video Josh, most useful.

    I too like Bastien, 1.40 TOW, although unsure about the 10LB claimer? I too expect Linenhall to go in again in the 12.40 TOW. Another early runner I like is Silent Steps for PN in the 1.20 TAU. So I will know my fate early today before pondering going in again.

    Looking forward to Saturday, I have backed Total Recall at 8/1 for the big race and hope to lay circa 7/2 ish or better. I do not fancy it greatly but thought the 8/1 would be value as I could lay on the day and have a free bet on the horse. What does anyone else think?

    1. Ah he did that well, thought Bastien may appreciate that climb to line and quite pleased with my ‘notebook’ eye, an area of the game I could always improve in… race wasn’t run to suit the last day, caught flat footed, did all best work late…once Jock got after him he has relished that hill. 5s decent if you were at the track, but given I was still cursing the notes pick, I may have had a dabble – drifted which was worth dabble.

      1. Yes the ‘boy done good’. Pushed it on trusting in stamina and let the others come if they could. Based upon its previous run it was expected to run on. Drifted and dug me out of a hole.

    1. Agreed, impressive, 101 points banked since 3rd Oct! Today’s at 9/1 & 11/1. Thanks Ian, hope you are celebrating at your local!

  4. I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar with SP2A today managed to get 15.5 on the Taunton winner but my 13.5 for the winner at Thurles didn’t get matched. Need to stop being greedy I guess.
