No tips on Sat, no chases I wish to play in.
2. Summer Jumps Angles
(all qualifiers = 5/28, 11p, -1) (star rating ‘ ♦ ‘ = 1/5, 3p, +2)
3.25 Bang – No No Maestro 6/1 UP -1
5.45 Uttox – Champagne Lilly H3 ♦ 6/1 UP 5/1 -1 (never in it, that all happened a stride too quick, flat out from flag fall, never jumped with speed – smaller field, 3m/3m2f+, stiffer track maybe)
6.20 Uttox – Canyon City 7/1
6.20 Uttox – Encore Champs 6/1
7.50 Uttox – Ever So Cool H2 10/3
3. Flat Turf Angles
(all qualifiers = 2/16, 2p, -12.17) (star rating ‘ ♦ ‘ = 0/2, 0p, -2)
3.00 Newb – Tamborrada H1 11/2 UP -1
7.35 Donc – Third Kingdom H3 2/1
A fairly quiet Saturday ahead, nothing on the jumps front I wish to wade in ‘tipping’ wise – if you see a C4, 2m7f+ handicap chase you’ll know i’ve had a browse, but they’re low grade on Saturday, the odd ‘novice’ handicap also, and the weather looks unpredictable. So, i’ll sit those out. There’s a 2m6.5f handicap chase at Stratford on Sunday I may be unable to resist browsing at, but we shall see.
I’ll be back Sunday morning at the latest, for now >>>
Saturday’s flat action, esp the handicaps, looks worth sitting out to my eyes (even for ‘musing’ purposes), certainly the ITV races. They’re all 3YO only handicaps which give me shivers, as naturally they’re packed with unexposed horses open to progress. Take the 3pm Newbury – 11 runners, 7 won last time out. 7 of them have 5 or fewer career starts, and it’s still early enough in the season to get a grip on the form-lines, who’s grown bundles over the winter, and who’s professional (doesn’t pull/can switch off etc) So, no musings on that front, i don’t think i’d be able to add much.
You can find a video at the bottom where I try to race through the 7 ITV races and try to say something useful, both for today and moving forwards.
Champagne Lilly – a ‘star rating’ pick for team Twister- they haven’t had a great time of it since November, well, just lacking consistency, but they’ve been going a bit better recently. This mare makes chase debut in a weak looking C5 and she arrives having run ok the last twice, and one of her novice hurdle efforts has worked out well, suggesting this mark is workable. What lured me in was the fact she won x4 in point to points (from five runs) and she could well be transformed for the switch to fences, enjoying this sort of tempo much more than hurdles where she has appeared a bit rushed & outpaced. She may not want this ground going proper soft, I don’t know, but that would be a question for many of them. I suspect she’s much better than this mark and chasing will help her show it, just a question of when. Hopefully she’s 6/7s+ which looks likely, I’m not sure i’d want a short price, but I thought i’d type this up now rather than Saturday morning. The first few fences may tell us plenty in this race and I suspect Sam will have her handy.
