Daily Tips

2.40 Tramore – Every Chance – 1 point win – 14/1 (gen) 

A bit of a flyer here and I could be wide of the mark – he could just be useless. However, he makes handicap hurdle debut here (trainer 2/19 with those) for connections, having done nothing of note in novice/maiden hurdles. He was claimed out of Jamie Osborne’s yard and had some ability on the flat, signing off with an OR 81, having been 92 at one point. In theory, a jumps mark of 89 would indicate he is very well handicapped in this sphere, if transferring his flat ability and ever showing it over jumps. His run LTO, when never put in the race, was after 70 odd days off and no doubt they’ve reluctantly plucked a jumps mark from somewhere- pure guesswork on his jumps form. I found it interesting that the tongue tie returns here, used by Osborne but not for any of his 4 hurdles runs. Danny Mullins has also been booked which caught the eye. He drops back to 16f and drops in class. This is a very very weak race – just awful. It won’t take much winning. It’s one of those where I think he’ll either bolt up or be out the back of the telly early, probably never sighted! I’ll roll the dice as there is just enough there and he was ok on the flat, certainly in the context of this race. 

That will do for today.  A poor day yesterday. Gunmetal was just painful, as is every recent losing tip winning at a double figure price, and as yet I don’t appear very good at picking when to tip them again! I suppose if I thought he was good enough to win the Steward’s I really should have kept the faith as yesterday’s race was much weaker to my eyes. I need to improve at forgiving a horse a poor run, esp at Goodwood, and he wasn’t beaten far. The draw stats got busted but he was draw against the rail, often races prominently and had Fanning on – no shock he tried to make all, and succeeded! It could have been that simple at 16/1. Damn. Terrentum Star’s race was over after 1/2 a furlong, a very bad stumble, game over. There will be other days for him, maybe at York, or Ayr. A 6/1 winner for S6 lifted the mood slightly. Moving on.

  1. Nice to keep the run of good Saturdays going today.
    Blazon Southwell Sunday 17:00 1pt e/w Price available 10/1 Has always been highly thought of at home and given some of his novice and bumper form looks very well treated but hasn’t quite put it together yet although I think Bailey has found him a decent opportunity here. Looks to get an easy lead at a track which favours front runners. They put the first time visor on and looks to have a solid chance particularly as the fav keep disappointing and isn’t doing anything different. Trainer has a solid record here and his last two runners have both placed.

    1. 3rd will do. Suspect would have been a shorter price if some daft idiots weren’t backing the Irish raider.

  2. a couple i like today
    Pontefract 5-10.Round The Island 8-1, 2 x c&d winner who is now only 3lb higher than last win here and that is cancelled out by jockeys claim hopefully gets his hat-trick.
    3-25. Strongly Suggested 20-1, heart over head with this one as he’s an old favourite of mine.
    5-00. will be backing Nicks selection as a matter of course but will be having a small ew on Ebonys Encore 12-1.

  3. There are no Recent Tips today.
    Hopefully some of you got the 16’s on Gunmetal
    I’ll update p/l figures later today

  4. I’m not a quitter I’m going again today. E/W as always.
    Southwell 3.25 Newton Geronimo 12/1, This is one of them horses you love or hate, backed him when he RR twice over 2 yrs ago has done nothing but improve since.
    Southwell 4.25, Little Windmill 5/1, Another one at the top of his game will need to be but this is still only a class 5.
    Southwell 5.00 Blazon 8/1, Just followed Nick in here,as simple as that.
    Pontefract 5.10 The Amber Fort 10/1, Good on ratings missed break last time .

    Good Luck everyone.

  5. bally marvellous josh …… you are now getting me into the irish racing as well now 🙂 great e/w price twas as good as a 4/1 winner without so much risk !! 🙂

    top ‘o’ the afternoon to u sir !

    there is “every chance” ui will make a profit this afternoon now 🙂 ..or at least no losses 🙂
    over n out

  6. Good stuff gents, I was on the nose as is my want. I should stop saying I expect it to be ‘all or nothing’ as they often end up placing! That was exciting for a time. A bit outpaced turning for home and sadly those in front didn’t fall in a hole. Still, can’t complain. On we go.

  7. U.S. Racing Tip Sunday Evening – Saratoga race 9, 11.02 UK, Max Velocity, 7/1 available now.

    Good luck.
