The lord has been kind enough to grant me 4 days off from today which is probably a good thing considering the late night NFL action last night. Biggs had been on (@Bickers56) to advise that the unders were a certainty in the Monday night football between the Bears and the Lions in the windy city. The line was set at 46.5 and with the game ending on 20 pts, this was never ever in doubt. If your on Twitter, then follow him. Very shrewd NFL judge. Only five days to go until I’ll be at Wembley with the troops watching one of my all time heroes in Tom Brady. I can’t wait. His last-minute drive on Sunday just sums him up, pure class.
Whilst working on Turf Tv yesterday we had 20 minute gaps between races and the more I looked at the card the more I liked THE TIGER and CHEVETON in the last two races. I expect there were plenty of pissed off betting shop managers when the guy on the audio in their shop says “The Tiger looks like a standout win bet and by far the best bet of the day” to then watch as it goes from 11/2 into 7/2 and wins on the bridle. Me and Anthony Kemp my parter in crime for the day were counting the cash about half a mile out. I could have put up several pounds overweight on him myself and won.
Today has actually turned into a very busy day. Several list horses are running and a couple of very strong win bets are required.
LANGHAM LILY (2.00 Ling) is without doubt the bet of the day. Chris Wall’s filly has only had four starts to date and really appreciated the step up to 9f last time at Wolverhampton in what is turning out to be interesting form. She went down a nose that day to Kathleensluckylad who looked well handicapped and has gone on to win off a five-pound higher mark since. They kicked clear and the further step up in trip could bring about even more improvement. Back in 4th that day was TARO TYWOD, you all know the improvement that has come there. The one danger in the race was going to be Mutual Regard but that was taken out first thing this morning. I fully expect Langahm Lilly to win and continue her progress. I’ve chunked on at 11/4 but I dont know how long it will last.
A nice each way bet could well be in order in the form of AARTI (3.20 Yarmouth) today. The Oasis Dream filly has dropped 10lb from her opening mark and is starting to drop hints that she is ready to strike. The switch to bad ground might aid her today as she tends to get a bit tapped for toe before staying on. There are lines in her pedigree that suggest she should go on it and with William Buick booked for her in form yard she represents a little value at 9/1 with SportingBet.
WINTER HILL (4.00 Ling) has looked like a horse for a while that is ready to strike. Having dropped a total of 12lbs since her opening mark of 69, the Tom Dascombe filly has run some creditable races without winning. Today she drops into a seller for the first time after catching the eye on her last run. Strictly she has a few pounds to find with a few of these on her current mark but I have no doubt she is better than that so potentially is very well in here off bottom weight. Very interesting at around 8/1. Ooi Long is also on the interesting list in the same race so may be saved on.
In Yarmouth’s 4.50 both GEEAITCH and EXCEEDEXPECTATIONS remain firmly on the hotlist. Geeaitch won for us last week and looks well ahead of his mark but you could also say the same for the latter. I will play them both with split stakes slightly favouring Geeaitch.
A real busy day and hopefully a big winning one!
I’m off back to bed with a Lemsip max to try and shed this flu once and for all. Come on the Lily.
Be lucky today campers,
