Well today is what all sports fans have been looking forward too! Ryder Cup 2012!
I expect that everybody has been trying to get everyone they know to open new Paddy Power accounts to get on the crazy 4/1 on offer on Europe to new account customers! I think they are an absolute knocking bet at 7/4 let alone 4/1! Like Christmas come 95 days early! Really can’t wait for the action to start at 1.20…..i’m in the hotseat at Coral so got a bird’s eye view! Come on boys!
On the racing front today its day 2 of the Cambridgeshire meeting and we are hopefully going to see next years Oaks winner in the fillies mile (on at 25’s)
THISTLE BIRD – 1.45 Newmarket 3 pts win @ 5/2 generally.
Ultra consistant filly takes a slight drop in class to try to claim a 4th win on the season for Roger Charlton. Joint top rated runner in the race who is likely to just sit in behind the pace this afternoon and hopefully kick on close home. Her form is working out well and she can take this on route to group company next.
CERTIFY – 2.55 Newmarket 5 pts win @ 10/11 generally.
High class unbeaten filly for Mahmood Al Zarooni who should be taking this on route to much better things. Wasn’t given the cleverest of rides last time but it ended up working in her favour as she had to really knuckle down and fight for the first time, so she would have learnt a lot. She should win comfortably this afternoon.
I’ll have a look at Wolverhampton this afternoon.
