That will be all for tips, 09.32…write ups…

Pickets Charge…doesn’t now technically qualify on the angle in section one after rain yesterday but I still think his price is too big here and thought he had every chance of running a big race. It looks like the ground is on the softer side of good and with no more rain forecast hopefully it’s not a problem. Any cut is a question for plenty in here inc this one but such was his price/his form/Ellison’s form and that of the jockeys, I thought he was worth chancing. He’s yet to prove he can’t handle it. It could be that tapeta has been the reason for the resurgence on his last three starts but it has coincided with the cheep-pieces being applied and it could be that’s more relevant. He’s won/ran well on turf and he now seems to be improving in Ellison’s care. He did bolt up the last day and while he takes a step up in class this doesn’t look the strongest C4 and in any case he hasn’t run in one with CP on, nor under Ellison. He does just look to be a better horse. He races on the pace and stays further. If handling the ground I’d like to think he will be bang there against these and his price looked a shade too big. He may well even drift out further. Ellison, like his horse, is in fine form… 7/26,14p in the last 14 days. He’s booked a very good apprentice here, one of the best in the race. Clifford Lee is riding well, 5/20,10p in the last 14 days. The horses only went up 2lb for that last win, which could turn out to be lenient. We shall see. But there was enough there at double figures for me to be tempted in. 

Wahoo…there was a non runner and 20p R4 applied as I was staring at him/this race, so 7s or so is in line with the price I was looking at before that. I thought he was the one to beat in this to my eye. He arrives in fine form and seems best with a few weeks between his races. He doesn’t really know how to run a bad race and has relished the softened turf at both Doncaster and then Haydock (there was some rain before/during the race) According to his trainer the turf had too much jar in it at Newmarket, hence the poor run. This horse runs on the pace and has showed a very willing attitude in a finish, and that will take him far. He seems to stay further also which may be no bad thing here as it could be a case of him tracking a fast pace, rather than leading today, and out-staying/battling them. Many of his races have produced subsequent winners inc the horse he beat LTO who won on his next start. He ran with credit in a decent 2YO race at Newmarket at the back end of last season and a big field clearly isn’t a problem for him. He’s only one of three class winners in the race in handicaps and the other two have yet to win over the distance from a few starts. The trainer is in decent enough form, 6/29,15p in the last 14 days and the trainer/jockey do well here…3/13,8p in the last year. Dods is 4/17,9p with 3 year olds in handicaps at the track in recent years, 3/20,10p in all 6f handicaps here and 4/23,10p in class 3 handicaps. I thought he looked solid here and 8.5/1 or so, when the fav was still in, looked rather generous and 7s/13/2 could now still under-estimate him. I’d be surprised if he was too far away here.  



Not a great day for my tips but a couple of nice winners from those I tipped on their last start at 10/1s and 7s or so! Brilliant. Since highlighting the record of my losing tips on their next star a few days back on the 5th, I think they’re 3/9, +19.5, +10.5 SP. Taking the total since last October time to 643 bets / 70 wins / +305.5 points early/bog / +67.5 SP. A bit silly really. There is logic why they should do that but I can’t say I was close to tipping Saturday’s two. One’s price had gone a bit by the time I looked, to my value eyes anyway, and the other was up two classes having come 3rd, but clung on by a neck, opened at 10s and sent off at 9/2, the rain did come. Damn. My recent tips won’t always do so well on their next start and given the win% sr there will be some hefty losing runs but that profit pile is rather substantial and if you wanted a systematic approach to my losing tips, to keep on eye on, backing on their next run after losing may be the way, while possibly being more selective on the rest. As ever thanks to Mike for tracking/posting. I’ll nail this game one day and tip some more of them!

  1. Reminder to have a look through the York card please, only if you have the time and it isn’t too much bother 🙂

    1. some brief thoughts above Steve, to add to your own! That was fairly rushed bar the two tipping races but fingers crossed a couple of winners there somewhere, time will tell! Don’t just stick to those though. Have fun.

  2. Morning Josh

  3. Lady In Question York 13:55 1pt e/w 15/2
    Soldiers Minute York 17:00 1pt e/w 20/1

    I’ll try and get some write ups done in a bit

    1. Lady In Question York 13:55 1pt e/w-Tipped up 3 starts ago over course and distance when she finished 3rd. The 2nd that day has since won a listed race. I would ignore her start at Goodwood as she doesn’t stay a mile but last time out she chased home a horse who finished less than a length 2nd in the London mile Final at Kempton yesterday. She has ran well in both her York starts and barring the Goodwood run she really hasn’t ran a bad race all season. Her best form including both her wins are on ground with cut so today should suit better than most of her runs this season. I also like the fact that Oakley Brown still gets to claim 7 against other claimers a number of which who would normally be able to claim something don’t. Fahey had 3 winners yesterday and seems to be coming back into form. She is drawn well and likes to race prominently so should run into traffic.
      Soldiers Minute York 17:00 1pt e/w-Tipped up last time out where I was really disappointed with the run but I am willing to give him one more chance as potentially firm ground or the big weight might have been excuses. Four starts ago he was a 2 lengths 6th in what is one of the best 3yr old sprints of the season which has thrown up countless winners at class 2 level and below. He than ran over an unsuitable 5f twice. As a result of those 3 races he has been dropped 7lbs. Should be able to race prominently. Trainer won this 2 years ago with Dark Defender. Fanning comes over for just the one ride and he is 5/15, 8p when having just the one ride at a track for the trainer. Hopefully he makes it 3 on the spin for us given I have tipped up the winner in this in each of the past 2 years. His best runs last year were in September last year including a decent 4th in a Listed race behind the Guineas runner up so maybe he is more of an autumn horse. The fact that he has an Ayr Gold Cup entry clearly makes me think connections think highly of him and if he ran close to what he did 4 starts ago he should hose up.

    F 2.20 – Midnight Gem on 2nd run @ 11
    L 4.50 – Conrad Hastings on 2nd run @ 9
    Y 2.55 – Kimberella on 1st run @ 7
    Y 2.55 – Stormbringer on 2nd run @ 7
    Y 2.55 – Justanotherbottle on 3rd run @ 6

    Ken, I’ll add the roi to stats which will then show runs/wins/sr/bog/sp/roi for each ‘run’ but can’t do it by specific horse.

  5. NTF Summer Stunner action today.

    Listowel 4.50 – Kylecrue – currently around 11\1, some bookies paying 4 places.

    Meets all the four highlighted conditions.

    All the best of having a bet.

  6. Thanks for looking at York, Josh. Along with those, Martin’s patent Nick and Colin’s tips it’s going to be a decent day**
