A look at the London Gold Cup .

From the members post… my main daily tipping efforts focus on 3m+ handicap chases so it’s always a bit quieter at this time of year but i’ve been dabbling on the flat, using my big meeting/race research as a starting point…

Flat TEST 

(Flat TEST 4/17,8p, +7.25)

3.00 Newb – Solid Stone – 1 point win – 9/2

I’ve decided to use the trainer pointers below for this one and i’ve landed on the fav! I think 9/2 could still look very good come 3.05 in this and i’ve a feeling this horse could just be a very smart individual in the making. The trainer doesn’t tilt at windmills in this and last won it with Cannock Chase (same owner I think) He’d go on to reach an OR of 116. This horse’s breeding suggests he could be a group horse in the making and it wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up in the US at some point either, given the American blood.(a Breeders Cup race maybe) Stoute is renowned for bringing these types along slowly and i suspect he left a bit to work on LTO. In any case this horse should appreciate this stronger pace. We ‘could’ see a decent performance here and I’ll side with him. It’s a race that has often worked out very well and you need more than a handicapper to win it. 


Some trainer pointers for The London Gold Cup,(3pm Newb) which if you’re into the flat and tracking horses, is usually a race to follow. This can/has throw up some listed/group OR 110+ horses of the future…
