Two selections go in Monday’s log

Proform

Morning peeps. Left slightly frustrated yesterday as things didn’t go my way. At Chelmsford you had to be right on the pace to have any chance so that didn’t pan out. I thought we’d nicked a biggie on KRUZHLININ who went off at a BFSP of 22.4 and traded at 1.17 jumping the last but got chinned by the progressive horse in the race. That was an interesting prep run for his national campaign. I’m sure that plenty of you may have traded out in running for a profit. Bravo if you did.

Unfortunate we’ve lost the jumping action today but we have two fairly decent Monday cards on the all-weather and I do like the look of a few. First up we got to the last race on the card at Lingfield (4.20) to back SEA TIGER. He’s not had much racing to date with just nine starts all told and has dropped right down to a basement mark of 45. He hinted (again) last time that a step up in trip might bring about a bit of improvement and he gets that today. My one worry about the race is that there is hardly any natural pace in here so this potentially could get messy. Hopefully Pat Cosgrave will go forward from stall one (has a sleeper in Munsarim in two) and just sit handy to pounce. We will need some luck and a bit of improvement but both are possible so at 20/1 I think we can throw a bullet at it.

SEA TIGER 1 pt win @ 20/1 BET365 and William Hill.

We have to back RAT CATCHER (5.40 Wolverhamton) later on too. He’s thrown in on some of his back form and has ben running well without winning of late. Although I think he might want six furlongs now this is going to be fast and furious and having been drawn in stall one, Rob Hornby will be able to take his time and pounce as late as possible. Obviously in this type of race we may need a bit of luck but if the gaps appear then I think he will go very close to winning and can’t see him out the frame.

RAT CATCHER 2 pts each way @ 5/1 generally.

Be lucky!

January wrap up and Sunday’s action!

Proform

Well we have arrived at the end of the first week and the end of January. A pretty decent start to our challenge to get us off the ground too. Sixteen bets in total in week one with five winners yielding a 31.25% strike rate. We will happily take that throughout the rest of the year especially as several things didn’t really fall for us this week. We have finished off January with a 12.25 points profit (+£1,225).

Saturday was slightly frustrating. Silsol won really well again in the Welsh Champion Hurdle at a juicy 10/1. I very nearly went a little stronger than the single point on him.

silsol

The last horse I crossed off the list yesterday was Join The Clan at Wetherby. Thought his price was a bit skinny in the morning despite thinking he had a great chance of following up his Warwick win. Well he went off even shorter and won well again. I found Ffos Las slightly uncomfortable viewing throughout most of the afternoon.

On to Sunday’s action and I am going to attempt to kick February off with a couple out the back of the hand as I like the look of a few at prices. I’m writing this on Saturday evening so apologies if some of the prices are a little out of date. I would advise (as always) where possible to be taking best odds guaranteed.

We are going to start with the googly in the form of EASTWARD HO (2.20 Chelmsford City). On recent form he doesn’t cry out as a potential winner but I’m hoping that circumstances of the race may just help. Firstly he is absolutely thrown in on some of his back form, admittedly though it’s been a while since he shown anywhere near that. Now he likes to be handy in his races but with Miami Gator in the field he is likely to have to take a lead. They are drawn alongside each other in 3 and 4 here so hoping we can just get a lovely trail into the race and pounce late. We are getting weight all-round here with Danny Brock taking over from Shelley and provided he doesn’t go mad early and try to chase a silly pace he may well be overpriced at 18/1.

EASTWARD HO 1 pt win 18/1 with SKYBET.

My strongest fancy of the day comes in the 3.20 at Chelmsford with BLACKTHORN STICK. John Butler’s charge did well to come from so far back last time to finish a close second behind a well backed winner. Having come a long way back down the weights he is now on a really attractive mark and could be ready to strike. I am hoping they have a good look at the race and ride him a bit closer to the pace as there is a lack of early toe in here. Ridden handily from a middle draw and kicking off the bend should see him go very close.

BLACKTHORN STICK 2 pts win @ 9/2

BIRCH HILL (3.30 Musselbugh) looks certain to appreciate the step up in trip when tackling three miles under rules for the first time. Mistakes and the wrong trip have been the issue to date but when wining his point last April he was strongest at the finish and with the extra emphasis on stamina here I’m hoping we may finally start to see some of the promised potential. He’s a general 4/1 chance this evening and that is probably too big.

BIRCH HILL 2 pts win @ 4/1 generally.

One more to come late on and again this time we’ll chuck in the doosra. Gonna throw a point at KRUZHLININ at Musselburgh (4.30). The Grand National is likely again to be the target this year for Donald McCain’s charge. He has not been seen since the Beecher Chase in early December where he got behind early but stayed on to finish a creditable 7th. Whilst this is probably a prep run, his hurdles mark is lower than his chase rating and the yard have hugely turned the corner this week. This is the weakest race he has run in for a while and I just thought that he may well out run his odds significantly. You don’t want to get too far behind round here so I will be delighted if he is ridden close to the pace in the early part of the race.

KRUZHLININ 1 pt win @ 16/1 generally.

Have an awesome Sunday and fingers crossed the Patriots do the business for us tonight in Superbowl 49!

Be lucky!

Morning everyone. Another really pleasing day yesterday bagged us two nice winners at Lingfield. Disappointed with the run of SYNAESSTHESIA at Wolverhampton but she is a project to keep an eye on. The market was incredibly negative about her late doors and the horse that was heavily backed most of the day won easily. As expected they didn’t go much of a pace and I think they might have got the tactics wrong on her. Still a nice 12.75pts profit on the day cannot be grumbled at.

We will start with what I consider to be the bet of the day for me in the form of FESTIVE AFFAIR (1.50 Sandown). A frustrating type really for Jonjo O’Neill who has been given some time off after a disappointing return to action at Cheltenham in November (where he was very well backed). His mark of 132 really does look very workable on his beating of Dark Lover last year. I am assuming they were not keen to run him during the yards cold spell and he looks to me to be a type that could thrive in the spring and towards the festival. Very keen on his chances this afternoon and wouldn’t at all be surprised if he was very well backed.

FESTIVE AFFAIR 3 pts win @ 5/1.

2.05 Ffos LasBetway Welsh Champion Hurdle (A Limited Handicap)

A really competitive affair. The first two winners of this race (Medinas & Saphir Du Rheu) have both proved to be very smart animals but I’m not sure there is anything of that class lurking in here. I put a line through at least half this field with comfort though and I think there are two worth backing. First up, top weight SILSOL. Let’s forgive the latest run at Cheltenham behind Rock On Ruby and concentrate on his handicap exploits of which his form reads 2111. Up another 7lb for winning at Newbury off 144, he was going away at the end there and I don’t think the extra 7lb would have stopped him that day. Jack Sherwood gets on very well with him with two wins from three rides and I think he has been slightly underestimated in the market and therefore should be backed.

The other one that interests me is AWAYWITHTHEGREYS for Peter Bowen and Jamie Moore. I think he likes this type of flat track and he ran well in the race last year which was a stronger race than today. The blinkers go on and I think he might just be overpriced.

SILSOL – 1 pt win @ 10/1 generally

AWAYWITHTHEGREYS 1 pt win @ 16/1 generally

2.40 Ffos Las – Betway West Wales National

Really keen on the chances today of GLOBAL POWER. Oliver Sherwood’s gelding hasn’t had much racing over the last couple of seasons but he has given the impression on several occasions that a step up to extreme trips could bring about plenty of improvement. I think he is an out-and-out stayer and the conditions of today’s race will play into his hands. A really solid bet.

GLOBAL POWER – 2.5pts win @ 11/2.

WEST LEAKE (4.05 Lingfield) hasn’t won for two years but seems to be in the perfect race for me today. He’s a hold up horse who would like to be on the bridle as long as possible and with Bertie Blu Boy in the field they are certain to go a crazy gallop. With one or two of these keen to chase the pace he could well just have everything set up absolutely perfectly. I struggle to see him not being in the first three and if all goes perfectly thee race may just fall into his lap. Last win came off 58 so is on a nice mark and should at the very least go close.

WEST LEAKE 2pts each way @ 6/1.

Now strangely for me too there are also a few in today that I like at short prices. So what I am going to do as it is the last day of the month is put a couple of them in a one point treble.  I won’t go in to too much detail but they are as follows:

KASHTAREE 1.00 Weth

SAMPLE 1.10 Ling

BRISTOL DE MAI 1.15 Sandown

This treble pays 22/1 with Sportingbet and I’ve thrown 1pt at it.

So a really busy Saturday with 12.5 pts at Stake. Confident of a decent day.

Enjoy a cracking day and be lucky!

Mixed emotions really about the action on Wednesday as we had a decent winner at 7/1 that was very well backed and two rather disappointing efforts either side. There was money for Daring Dragon and to be fair the race wasn’t really run to suit so he remains of interest in the short-term. With Dutch S the writing was on the wall before the off as she drifted drastically close to post time. Should always remember not to back against the West Ham theme as Pretty Bubbles won well again.

On to Friday’s action and I have managed to find a few particularly interesting runners to get involved with.

First up we got to Lingfield at 1.30 to back FEB THIRTYFIRST. Sheena West’s six-year-old had five starts on the level back in 2012 and was largely disappointing. A switch to hurdling brought about some rapid improvement and he has shown a fair level of form in most starts over timber on some bad ground. He is lightly raced for his age and is now potentially thrown in here off a mark of 46 (was rated 124 over hurdles). This huge drop in grade should bring about a great winning opportunity back on the level.

FEB THIRTYFIRST 2.5pts win @ 4/1 Bet365/Betfair Sportsbook.

Next on the hit list today is THE WEE CHIEF (2.35 Lingfield). Has gone down the weights like me off the ten metre board on splash! Thus there is an element of doubt attached to this one. He has however run well fresh in the past (back off a 213 day break) and Jimmy Fox has just started to have a few winners. With Luke Morris on board for the first time, he looks primed and ready to run well especially if plenty of money comes for him. On a side note to this race keep your eyes on VOLITO. He is totally being lined up for a winning sequence in my opinion. His habit of missing the break doesn’t help but he is also well handicapped now. Initially they booked George Baker for today but he is now elsewhere. Today probably not the day but I would not put you off having a little saver just in case. Keep your eyes on him in the run.

THE WEE CHIEF 1.5 pts win @ 9/2 with PaddyPower

0.5 pts saver on VOLITO at any price you like on Betfair.

The most interesting horse of the day for me though runs at Wolverhampton in the 6.45 in the form of Lady Cecil’s SYNAESTHESIA. Just four starts in maiden company for the daughter of High Chaparral (out of a Selkirk mare) and shown just modest form. The eye catcher for me though was last time when she ran better than the bare form suggested under an interesting ride. She travelled well enough and when they quickened off the bend Ted Durcan decided to switch her up the inside rail at Lingfield (not advised). He also, never at any point, touched her with the whip. I don’t think the drop back in trip will be an issue as there is not a lot of pace in the race so I can imagine that Adam Kirby will have her handy so he can kick and dictate off the bend. She is certainly bred to be better than 66 and she is very close to maximum bet material for me.

SYNAESSTHESIA – 4 pts win @ 4/1 generally.

Slightly off topic but it seems that Tom Segal came to pretty much the same conclusion to me about the Arkle so hopefully plenty of you managed to get on when we put up up a week or so ago at 25/1. The price hasn’t altered too much since but nice to be ahead of the market and I’m sure he will be much shorter come race time.

Have an awesome Friday and be lucky!

All the best

Morning campers. Just a little recap on Monday. Disappointing that the main bet Master Of Disguise couldn’t win having been in a perfect position all the way round. Columbia won well enough though to make it a winning day.

First interest of the day today comes at Chelmsford in the 2.40 in the form of Derek Shaw’s DARING DRAGON. His form for the past year has been sketchy to say the least but as a result has dropped to a pound below his only winning mark. He switched to Shaw’s yard in August and just had the one run so has now had plenty of time to acclimatise. He has gone well fresh in the past and his better efforts have come on polytrack. I just felt that at morning prices this morning he is probably overpriced and was therefore worth an investment.

DARING DRAGON 1pt each way @ 12/1 generally.

Next up on the interesting list is the Daniel Kubler trained TRIMOULET (4.10 Chelmsford). Handicap debut this afternoon off a mark of 65. There is strong reason to believe that this mark is generous. Giving the impression the last twice that there is plenty of improvement in him. Given the fact that a step up to ten furlongs may also bring about a bit more I think he is clearly very interesting today.

TRIMOULET 1 pt win @ 7/1 generally.

DUTCH S (6.15 Kempton) is really interesting later on. She didn’t quite finish her summer off as expected but has been given a bit of time (a regular feature of Clive Cox) and I expect a big run from her. One or two of her speed figures suggest that she is very capable of winning off 73 and I think she is a really interesting bet tonight and would expect to see money for her with Kirby on board.

DUTCH S 3 pts win @ 7/2 (Stan James)

Have a great day and be lucky,

The 2015 Challenge & Saturday blog!

Proform

Morning all. Managed to witness Cambridge parking several double deckers in order to secure a 4th round replay at Old Trafford last night. Not the most riveting viewing for the neutral but a scoreline which means that Cambridge United’s financial future is pretty secure. Very much looking forward to our trip to Bristol City on Sunday, although far from impressed by the away allocation due to ground building works.

A couple of you have mentioned about me doing some sort of challenge on the racing front this year in order to keep the blog regular (sorry again), so I have come up with something to keep us all entertained whilst hopefully making you a few quid at the same time. So the challenge is set. The UK’s average salary in 2014 was £26,500. So, can we make the average UK salary in just under a year from backing horses? This is the challenge for the next 11.5 months and is set out below:

I will put up my daily selections on the blog and each horse will be backed on a points system from 1-5 pts depending on the strength of the bet. For the purposes of the challenge, we will bet at £100 a point. This means that on average in need to make 22.5 points profit per month. A sum I am confident we can nail. Keep an eye on the staking, sometimes there will be two against the field which for me is still a very profitable angle in certain races.

Now for the purposes of added incentive maybe if one of our friendly bookmaker representatives or indeed a few of them would like to take on the challenge, maybe we could agree to pay the profits at the end of the year to a few charities? The Injured Jockeys Fund, Racing Welfare & Heros? Maybe a few of you would like to offer even £1 a point or similar for the final points total in December? If anybody outside the bookmaking teams would like to donate then please do feel free to get in contact. My twitter is @markagrantham.

Please feel free to share this with anyone that maybe interested in the head to head and we will see if we can make some money for charity at the same time.

So there really is no time like the present…… let’s get this started!

A superb days racing today with trials day at Cheltenham plus Skybet Chase day at Doncaster. Most of my attention betting wise though will be centered around Lingfield.

First off in the 1.25 we have two interesting runners to concentrate on. Firstly SASKIA’S DREAM went into many notebooks at Chelmsford on the opening day when she stuck to the far rail when most of the winners that day had come up the middle of the track. The negative is she doesn’t win very often but having said that her last win came off 61 and she’s in here off 57 so from a handicapping point of view there is a lot to like. She’s only got 8-13 to carry off bottom weight and is of major interest. The other one in the race that is really interesting is HUMOUR. Looked all over the winner at Wolverhampton last time and traded very short in the run before getting collared on the line by an in-form rival. This drop back to sprinting might just be ideal and should be backed.

SASKIA’S DREAM 1 pt win  @ 11/1 generally, Humour 1 pt win @ 12/1 generally.

Jump to the last race of the day (4.20 Lingfield) and I’m keen on the chances of KODIAC LADY. She hinted on handicap debut last time that a mark of 60 is going to be well within her compass. There is not a load of pace in the race today with several stalkers that will be held up. With Luke Morris up I expect him to just sit in behind the pace and look to make good use of her off the bend. She looks to be overpriced to me at around 8/1.

KODIAC LADY 1 pt each way @ 8/1.

A cracking days racing at Cheltenham today but I failed to feel overly strongly about anything. Really looking forward to seeing Peace and Co again. I know he ran big on all the figures at Doncaster but the thing that lit my fire the most was his hurdling. It was electric. He reminded me of a young Harchibald on how slick he was from one side to the other. I hope he wins really well today.

Enjoy,

All the best

Eye Catchers Coming Soon

Apologies for the shorter nature of today’s blog. I’m on wedding duty so time is tight!

The Cambridgeshire looks a typically difficult puzzle to solve. I have to air on the side of boring and say that I do really like the chances of the morning favourite CORNROW. With the prep run over seven furlongs last time being on the short side of what he wants, I think this has probably been the plan all along. I can see him running a very big race and in a race where you can get six or even seven places with some special offers he is a must back each way.

2 pts e/w with SKYBET @ 13/2 paying 6 places

INSTANT ATTRACTION 8.30 Wolverhampton

He has been on the watch list since his reappearance back in April and won well for me last time out when appreciating the switch to this surface. Only a 5lb rise today and I think there is every reason to believe there could be plenty more to come. He is the best bet of the day for me.

2 pts win @ 11/2 generally.

SURETY – 2.30 Chester

A strong traveller who has not quite been getting home over a mile recently and I have been hoping for a drop back in trip. Gets it today and is well drawn in stall four off bottom weight. I think he is really interesting!

1 pt each way at 12/1.

Again apologies for the short nature of today. Off to see Biggs tie the knot whilst trying to listen to the game at Old Trafford! COYI

Friday’s Blog: Der Meister Strikes!

Proform

Eye Catchers Coming Soon

First and foremost I must kick off today’s blog with a thanks for all the kind messages about yesterday’s results. With Der Meister’s win at 12/1 it was a decent winning day all round but was very nearly much better! Prince Gagarin ran well off a slow pace but could only manage 2nd and after being absolutely smashed up in the betting into 9/4, Thunder Pass also ran well just failing to land the spoils. It seems that plenty of you put them into each way doubles and a treble because of the prices and had a lovely return. I think the place element of the treble paid about 17/1. A special note to Peter Nawab for his donation. The closer Thunder Pass’s race came around the more confident I became. He will come on a bundle for that run you would imagine and in hindsight when you delve into his pedigree, a mile and a half on the turf will probably suit slightly better. Let’s hope the handicapper is not too harsh on him for finishing 2nd.

A really busy day today and plenty of action to get your teeth into and a really quality card at Newmarket. There is very little in the way of value on offer in the feature races. I am very much looking forward to seeing LUCIDA on our shores for the first time in the Rockfel at 2.40. She in the space of a month has very quickly made up into a smart filly. Today’s test is likely to bring about plenty of improvement in her and I struggle to see her getting beat today. Whilst I am not into putting up short priced favourites, I simply could not put you off putting her into your bets today.

Ok in the search of a bit of value today I have managed to find one in the most difficult race of that day that I do actually believe is largely over priced. We are searching for the Friday night crown jewels in the form of COINCIDENTLY in the Silver Cambridgeshire (5.00 Newmarket). She has been in the notebook for a while as a potential improver and duly dotted up off  a mark of 73 at Epsom four starts ago. She then ran poorly on her next start but that was just 48 hours later. She was back to form off her revised mark at Ayr three weeks later and ran a blinder to be second. Again she tried to back that up 48 hours later when traveling very strongly and getting no run whatsoever and Franny Norton gave up some way out and she effectively finished on the bridle. This shows she is still in rude health and also gives me belief that she is very capable of this career high mark. Granted, there are plenty of potential improvers in this field and the younger three-year olds have an outstanding record in the race so she has a task on but let’s look at the positives. Firstly she is a 33/1 shot this morning. She will be much bigger and largely ignored on the exchanges. Her three career wins have come in August, September and October suggesting she is an Autumn filly. Silvestre De Sousa has ridden her just twice and has won on her twice. I am obviously wary of the younger brigade but taking single figure prices in this type of race is the fast way to the poor house. In true Pricewise style I am going for the out of the park home run. I think she will out run those odds considerably and probably should be about 12/1.

1 pt each way at 33/1. Make sure you shop around for prices as some firms are paying five places.

The second one I want to have a good go on today is WILDE INSPIRATION (4.10 Haydock). The lightly raced son of Dandy Man has been ultra consistent this season and still has plenty of scope for improvement having only had nine career starts to date. The main reason for him being a selection today though is down to the step up in trip. Three times on my race notes I have mentioned that he could benefit from a step up in trip and today he gets a mile for the first time. Paul Mulrennan has a good rapport with him and he also has the weight for age allowance. I really respect the chances of the rejuvenated Pearl Nation who has improved enormously for the switch to Mick Appleby but I am confident that Wilde Inspiration will run a big race.

2 pts each way at 8/1 generally.

The two above are the main two interests of the day for me really but I do have a couple of others to throw into the mix. The first of these is PENGLAI PAVILION (3.45 Newmarket) who has had a poor season so far but on his best form, including a staying on fifth in last years Arc, he would win this comfortably. He has been given a break and gelded since his last run and if that has had a positive effect he might go very close to winning this afternoon.

1 pt win @ 9/1 generally

GREEK SPIRIT (6.20 Wolverhampon) has been largely out of sorts recently but just caught the eye last time. She is lightly raced and judged on her win off 6lbs lower last year this mark is workable. A very small interest at big prices.

0.5 pt win @ 18/1 generally

GHOSTING (9.20 Wolverhampton) is slowly slipping from an opening mark of 74 and did well to come from off the pace in an slowly run affair behind a Godolphin improver. This should be run to suit and although there are a few potential lurkers I am more than willing to have a stab at the morning price of 6/1.

1 pt win @ 6/1 generally.

A really busy day then and some quality stuff. Coral TV this morning with an avid eye on the golf. What an atmosphere at Gleneagles this morning!

Cheer home some winners!

Wednesday blog: The Gypsy Revival?

Proform

Eye Catchers Coming Soon

Morning to all! I would like to extend a very warm welcome onboard to all of the fightingtips.co.uk members that may well be reading for the first time today. I hope you enjoy my pearls of wisdom and most importantly, make a few quid through what you read. Kick off with a quick re-cap on yesterday. Toot Your Flute actually ran really well. SDS had to use up quite a bit to get to the front from stall 11 and he travelled really well through the race. I thought momentarily that he might have nicked it off the bend but the two classy horses went by. He still ran very well to finish third at 20/1 if you backed him each way. Keep an eye on him for when he qualifies for handicaps.

All Or Now is such a winner waiting to happen. He’s a hold up horse and on a really tight track they went no pace at all. I lost track of the amount of times he jumped into the back of runners. In truth it wasn’t the best ride. As they quickened he was caught out of his ground and then flew home to be beaten a length. Certainly another one to add to the list.

Moving on to today’s action. We have three horses going today of the eye-catchers list with varying degrees of interest. We will spin through them in time order.

RAINBOW ROCK – 4.25 GOODWOOD

Probably went into a thousand notebooks after his unlucky defeat at Goodwood at the glorious meeting. He had been in mine since the back-end of last year. The frustrating thing about him is that he has only managed one win in rising 16lbs in the weights. His run at Ascot two weeks ago can be forgotten and that should have put the son of Rock Of Gibraltar spot on for today. We know he acts on the track, this is the easiest contest he has tackled since his victory and with Fanning back on board I am hopeful that he can win this well. Conditions should be fine and with the weight for age allowance I think he is still a well handicapped horse off 86.

2 pts win @ 11/4 generally.

ART SCHOLAR – 8.20 KEMPTON

This seven-year old needs no introduction really. All of my regular readers probably still tip their glass whenever they see his name from his exploits in 2012 which included winning the November handicap in a canter off a mark of 93. He has had one or two problems since then and has largely been out of form but there have been signs that there is still some of the old spark there. His mark has now dropped to 77 and this is as weak a  race as he has contested in some time. The cheek pieces go back on tonight to try to aid a bit more and Tom Queally is on board who actually has a very healthy strike rate when riding for Mick Appleby. He is generally a 9/1 chance this morning so he is definitely worth a stab at a decent price. Just hope they go a good enough gallop up front so that he can cruise into the race in his own time.

1 pt win @ 9/1 BetVictor/Betfred

The last of the trio today is a bit of a shot out the back of the hand in the form of  GYPSY RIDER (9.20 Kempton). His form this year has been average, he is dropping back in trip and has stall eleven to contend with. Ok, that’s all the negatives out of the way. The positives are he is now running off a career low mark, his best form tends to come at Kempton, Liam Jones takes over in the saddle and he has a first time visor fitted. Add in the fact that you can back him at 20/1 this morning and I think we have a goer. He’s generally a hold up horse so from the outside  gate Liam can just take his time in tracking over. Fingers crossed they go a decent gallop and provided he still has the pace for six furlongs he should have a very god chance of making the place money at the very least!

1 pt each way at 20/1 generally

So nothing overly strong today but three small darts that hopefully should give us a chance of a decent return on the day. A full day of videos yesterday meant that another 16 runners were added to the eye-catchers list from the last weeks racing. It is all building up very nicely and with plenty of them entered over the coming days, I am looking forward to plenty of winners.

Enjoy your racing today,

Be lucky
