Below I have repeated a ‘tip’ from today’s Members’ Post…
Test/trial : ‘NOTES’ (01/09/17-) (31/175, +111.75) (1 point win bets)
3.10 Warwick – Colt Lightening – 6/1 (gen) PU
*oh well I can only conclude he’s hated the going there- he has never really looked comfortable. A bit green/pulling early but he was being niggled as they headed out for the final circuit. I can only think it was the going which was the unknown. With any luck he’ll be a bigger price if/when reappearing on better ground! Beaten long before any lack of ability etc.
One from the test zone today but if you just backed every Lacey qualifier that had this sort of profile you’d do just fine over time. Well, that’s what the evidence suggests so far. This one is unexposed over hurdles and is doing a couple of things different – namely making handicap hurdle debut (trainer 8/25,12p with hncp debutants,+36 – a micro in itself) and the horse moves up in trip by 3f, which is another of Lacey’s successful methods. He drops into a class 5 here and ‘could be anything’ now he goes handicapping. He could just be moderate and his mark needs to come down a few more pounds. Or he has plenty in hand. Heavy ground is an unknown to most in here but he has been pitched into a very weak race on paper. Lacey continues in fine form also, 6/21,10 places in the last 30 days, 4/10,6p the last 14. Fair to say they are going well. He ticks all the boxes here for the ‘magic formula’ (stats qualifier/unexposed/doing something different) and at 6s is a must for me. I get the impression he’ll be winning a weak handicap soon enough (Carlisle run two starts ago looked ‘interesting’ and last race looked decent enough, he kept going at least), possibly on better ground, but i’m guessing there. Price, in the context of his profile/this race, allows the play.
GL with any bets,
