Mondays selections from #Carlisle #Nottingham #Windsor


The latest selections

NB: Rumi 1pt win only 11/2 (820 Nottingham) – Blinkers on for the first time following a lacklustre introduction to turf last time out. Didn’t break well on that occasion in what looked a pretty hot race so should be better here for that outing. Interesting that jockey Trevor Whelan jumps off the horse he won this race on last year Cherry Cola to keep the ride here on the selection for Roger Charlton.

IWAC: Waltzing Intime 1pt win only 10/1 (720 Nottingham) – Significantly upped in trip for handicap debut and also a first run on turf. Out of Derby winner Australia so holds plenty of scope for improvement going over this longer trip. Yard are 2 wins and 2 placed from 5 at the track in the last 12 months and that offers further encouragement.

Itsallaboutluck 1pt win only 11/2 (650 Nottingham) – A 19 race maiden who has been off the track for 7 months following a change of yards. Now has a first run for the very much in form Peter Bowen who is building quite the reputation on the flat this term. Significantly back up in trip returning to turf and his current mark looks like an insult if back to anywhere near his best form.

NAP: Sweet Aroma 1pt win only 8/1 (315 Carlisle) – Lightly raced maiden who looks very unexposed coming into this. Eased 2lb for a very decent looking reappearance from 4 months off the track which looks pretty generous given she was short of room and being tested over a longer trip for the first time. Back at 6f here and should be capable of a big race in this sphere.

Better Half 0.5pt EW 25/1 (450 Carlisle) – Last of 8 on return last time out but was only beaten a total of 6 lengths and had excuses that day. The form of her win at Chelmsford last term can be upgraded and the extra furlong here today ought to suit judged on breeding so she is open to plenty of improvement for the yard that won the race last term and saddled the runner up in 2018. Yard have a great record here in recent years and send just this one tonight.

Sunday Selections from #SalisburyRaces


The latest selections

Secret Bear 0.5pt EW 25 /1 (205 Salisbury) – Well beaten on all 3 starts to date but will be suited here by this sharp 7f today on handicap debut. Yard have been in good form of late and its very difficult to believe this gelding is realistically 10lb out of the handicap. Some pretty decent form has come from his last race and he could well outrun his odds today having been freshened up with a visor applied today.

NB: Penguin Island 1pt win only 9/2 (240 Salisbury) – Reappearance run was an encouraging one and this sharp 7f here will suit very well indeed. Needs to settle better but no doubt work will have been done on that over the last 7 weeks since that race and plenty of progress can be expected here. Her piece of form from October at Kempton puts her a good 6lb well in here if acting on todays surface.

IWAC: Minnetonka 1pt win only 9/1 (315 Salisbury) – Richard Hannon has saddled the runner up in this race 3 times in the last 4 running’s as well as winning it back in 2015 and 2016 and we fancy him to take it again today with this classily bred Kingman Filly. Yard are 7/37 with newcomers this term and this is clearly a race that they go after.

Benefit 1pt win only 7/2 (350 Salisbury) – Low mileage 3yo who put in her best run to date last time out at Haydock and could be capable of better still with optimum conditions looking certain today. Yard won the race back in 2019 and come here with them going well too.

Sous Les Etoiles 1pt win only 5/1 (425 Salisbury) – A race with some incredibly well bred horses most of who will possibly come on for their runs here and therefore we side with the also well bred sort from the Charlie Fellows stable. Has a couple of mediocre runs under the belt this Winter on the AW and that is experiece that could just be the difference today. Likely to have improved over the break and comes here with her yard bang in form.

Toronado Grey 1pt win only 11/1 (500 Salisbury) – Won twice over the mile last term and was entitle to have needed the run on reappearance last time out when upped to todays trip for the first time. Has to prove he can stay this far but is bred well enough to pick up a race of this sort should that be the case for a very shrewd outfit who are finding some form at present.

NAP: Eddie The Beagle 1pt win only 7/1 (535 Salisbury) – A pleasing reappearance run last time out when was unfortunate to meet trouble in running behind Rolypolymoly. Should progress again today for that run and this step up in trip could well squeeze out a little more too.

Saturdays Selections from #Bath #Chester #Leicester #Sandown #York


The latest selections

Oriental Beauty 0.5pt EW 18/1 (300 Bath) – Well beaten on yard debut last time out when reappearing from 250 days off. Has plenty to prove here today too but has snippets of form for Mick Channon last term that puts her well above this revised mark. On her best run last term we have her at around 72 and goes from 55 today. Yards record here is a good one at around a 22% strike with a +47 LSP.

Dark Flyer 0.5pt EW 16/1 4places (336 Bath) – Just touched off over 7 furlongs back in January and followed that up with another decent run on the AW. Flopped last time and been off for 53 days since so there will likely be an excuse for that performance. Has a first run on turf today which should be more up his street and steps up to 1 mile for the first time which he looks to be crying out for. Sits on a very tempting mark and gets a very valuable 5lb off in the form of Benoit D L Sayette.

Chicago Gal 1pt win only 11/2 (411 Bath) – Shown plenty of promise on his 3 starts to date and gets a much needed step up in trip here on handicap debut for the in form Alan King. She will need to be ready after 7 months off but having the yard in good order gives us the confidence for that. Opening mark looks fair and a further 5lb taken off by the above mentioned claimer B Sayette makes this filly a very interesting prospect. Yards only runner at the meeting.

My Boy Charles 1pt win only 15/2 (446 Bath) – Way too free over the inadequate 8f trip last time out and should fair much better now upped in trip today. Won over 10f here last summer and is only 2lb above that mark here today. Finley Marsh takes off 3lb and has a decent record for the yard around here.

Redrosezorro 1pt win only 11/1 (430 Chester) – Had been banging on the door from his much reduced mark until missing the break last time out at Catterick. Should go well again if able to get away on terms from the 1 stall here at Chester.

Hamaki £10 win only 13/2 Skybet money back if 2nd or 3rd (140 Sandown) – Back to back winner last term before a lesser performance when upped in trip. Interesting then that the return run here is over an extra furlong having undergone a wind op suggesting that the trip should play to this ones strength and improvement could well be on the cards for top yard.

#SuperSunday Selections from #Goodwood #Musselburgh


The latest selections

The Turpinator 1pt win only 8/1 (130 Goodwood) – Disappointed last time out in a big field handicap at Ascot but had previously won on reappearance when making yard debut in a race that can be upgraded given how it has worked out before following up with a decent run in behind some very good horses. Still more to come from this one and has been set a more realistic task today down in grade.

Land Of Winter 1pt win only 17/2 (315 Goodwood) – Previous CD winner who was set a fairly hefty task on reappearance in the Chester Cup when looking to be in need of the run. This looks a more realistic target today and we fancy this one to get back to winning ways and continue the progression shown in 2021. Some overnight rain will have played to his strengths here today and i don’t think we have seen the limits to this ones abilities just yet.

Kimifive 1pt win only 8/1 (350 Goodwood) – Not won a race in 3 years but has gone well enough recently to suggest some ability is retained. Was 2nd here in the Stewards Cup from a 17lb higher mark in Aug 2020 and if able to rediscover any of that form returning here could well surprise today. Ought to be capable of taking a race of this magnitude and today could be the day.

Tio Mio 1pt win only 11/1 (450 Goodwood) – Ought to come on for his latest run and is now slightly better at the weights with the reopposing pair of Leroy Leroy/New Heights. Based on what we know of this yards runners he will be capable of reversing that form with the run under his belt and has been gelded since which could well put this one right. Still very unexposed on turf and should have more to offer today.

Talabaat 0.5pt EW 33/1 5 places SkyBet (545 Musselburgh) – We are going to ignore her last run on yard debut where looking in need of the run and not really doing herself any favours over an inadequate trip in a very hot looking race. This looks a little easier albeit competitive and the extra furlong should play a little more to her strengths. Cheek pieces have now been applied and this race will tell us more. Worth an EW dabble with 5 places on offer for a yard sending 1 runner and holding a record of 11 wins from 26 runners for a 42% strike at the course.

Fashion Advice £10 win only 11/2 Skybet money back if 2nd or 3rd (416 Musselburgh) – CD winner who went very close on reappearance from almost a year off last time out. Up 2lb for that but on last seasons form looks fairly well treated compared to a few of his main dangers here today. Today’s 5lb claimer is 3 wins and 4 placed from 13 for the yard and has had a great season so far.

#Derby Day selections from #Chepstow # Doncaster #Epsom #Hexham #Musselburgh


The latest selections

Danzeno 0.5pt EW 33/1 4 places B365 (321 Musselburgh) – No spring chicken at 11 years old but was better than ever last term winning 3 races and running well in some pretty competitive handicaps. Has gone well fresh in the past and with todays claim taken into consideration does not look harshly treated. A previous CD winner who’s yard have a great record in this race and have taken it on 3 occasions in its 8 running’s and they play a strong hand again today. They also run Sampers Seven who holds excellent chances too.

Monsieur Co 1pt win only 6/1 (205 Hexham) – Consistent performer who looked stretched over 3 miles last time out. Slowly creeping down the weights and sits on an attractive mark today some 21lb below his last winning one. That win came 18 months ago however so does not come without risk. Yards only runner on the card today and Brian Hughes on board rates a big positive.

Punchbowl Flyer 1pt win only 9/1 (550 Epsom) – Won 3 times last year and will come here absolutely bang on for his two starts this term. Was much improved last time out but has still been eased 4lb here which looks pretty generous to say the least. Back at his optimum trip and should go well. Would possibly like a little more give under foot but has won on good ground before.

King Of Stars 0.5pt EW 16/1 6 places Will Hill (345 Epsom) – Shaped very well last time out in a very competitive race and should be all the better for that run. Still looks to be fairly well treated based on his form from last term and will be competitive once more back in handicap company.

Hy Eales 1pt win only 9/1 (805 Chepstow) – Hard to make a case for on bare form results but take out the AW runs and this one has not performed badly on turf on more than one occasion and comes here sitting on her last winning mark. Possibly would like a little more give under foot but still rates a well treated sort when taking off Georgia Dobie’s 3lb for a yard that have a 36% strike here in the last 5 years. They send just this one today.

Our Man In Havana 1pt win only 7/1 (530 Chepstow) – Got up very late for a 2nd CD win on reappearance last time out and is taken to go well again upped just 2lb. Race looks no better than ordinary and comes here in better form than many of these rivals.

Multiple

0.25pt Trixie on Our Man In Havana/Hy Eales /Monsieur Co – 1pt

0.5pt EW Double on Danzeno/ King Of Stars – 1pt

Free Bet

Stone Age £5 win only 9/2 (B365 Free bet on any race at Epsom) (430 Epsom) – Much like the Oaks yesterday Aiden O Brien’s record in this race with a Galileo bred runner stepping up in trip is very hard to ignore. All 3 of his runners fit the bill but the selection is the mount of Ryan Moore and that’s good enough for us.

Specials/Offer

Potapova £10 win only 7/2 SkyBet money back if 2nd or 3rd (235 Epsom) – Returned to action with a big run at Kempton in April and has been brought along very gradually by Sir Michael Stoute. Very Promising sort who was finishing like a train last time out when just narrowly held by Roman Mist. Looks an improving sort who should go close again under Ryan Moore.

#EpsomOaks day selections from #Epsom #Catterick #Doncaster #Huntingdon #Bath


The latest selections

Tuesday 1pt win only 17/2 + The Algarve 0.5pt EW 100/1 4 places B365 (430 Epsom) – Aiden O Brien is no stranger to winning this race and has done it with his unfancied horses on more than one occasion. Tuesday 7/1 probably rates his main threat to the favourite and fits the bill in terms of being a Galileo filly stepping up to this trip for the first time like 4 of the yards previous winners of this race. The other selection could not go with the favourite Emily Upjohn in the Musidora at York and was comprehensively beaten that day. However many of this yards runners often need a first race and she could come on plenty for that race today.

Daiquiri 1pt win only 4/1 (751 Doncaster) – Has shown plenty of promise on both outings this term and is open to improvement here on handicap debut. Upped in trip which looks likely to suit and the form of the last couple of races is working out pretty nicely. Yard do well with their youngsters and they are profitable to follow here off a 27% strike rate in the last 5 years.

Keepers Choice 1pt win only 11/2 (730 Bath) – 3 wins and 2 places from 10 runs over CD and only 3lb above that last win here at this time last year. Should be fitter for his latest reappearance run and will enjoy being back here with conditions to suit from what looks a plum draw.

Suanni 1pt win only 15/2 (620 Bath) – Gelded since last run so much will depend on how he settles after that procedure. Comes here dropping in grade and having been eased slightly at the weight however and given the yards current form can be expected to go well. Has won at the track previously but that was over the extended 5f so todays race will be much sharper which we think will be ok.

Jersey 1pt win only 15/2 (355 Huntingdon) – Not been seen since falling on handicap debut 158 days ago but still holds plenty of potential from this mark for the very much in form yard of Dan Skelton. The yards sole runner on the card today and they will be looking to add to their tally of 6 winners from 12 runners in the last 14 days.

Nurseclaire 1pt win only 15/2 (445 Catterick) – Well held on stable debut and has been off the track for 158 days since that run. Had previously shown plenty for Richard Fahey and is one that still hold lots of potential now going handicapping for the first time. Kieron O Neill in the saddle rates a big positive with his record here over the last 5 years sitting at 5 wins from just 14 runs for a 36% strike. Yard are having a decent season and have been amongst the winners in the last couple of weeks.

Captain Howse 1pt win only 6/1 (840 bath) – Sir Mark Prescott has won this race on both occasions where he has had a runner line up. He has done so with runners that have stepped up markedly in trip on each occasion and that is the case for his runner here today. His winner last year was out of the Dam Australia as is the selection this time around. Blinkers on for the first time and needs to be taken seriously. Copperplate rates the main danger, well bred and will be crying out for this longer trip so i would not put anyone off covering the bet with a reverse forecast.

Multiple

Specials/Offer

Self Praise £10 win only 8/1 (200 Epsom) Skybet money back if 2nd, 3rd or 4th – Possibly has some of the best form on offer from these and has shaped as if needing this extra furlong on both runs to date. Danny Tudhope takes over in the saddle and he has a great record for these connections of 4 wins and 2 placed from 9 for a 44% strike.

#Jubilee selections from #Chelmsford #FfosLas #Hamilton #Leicester #Redcar


The latest selections

Typewritten 1pt win only 9/1 (710 Chelmsford) – Finished last on yard debut last time out after 100 days off the track. Looked awkward and unsettled that day and could fair better back at Chelmsford where her best race to date was seen back in December. Tom Marquand takes over in the saddle which is a big positive and the addition of cheekpieces can certainly do no harm. Up in trip which looks likely to suit and could well surprise today.

Addie Boo Boo 1pt win only 6/1 (810 Chelmsford) – Lightly raced maiden who was not disgraced on reappearance when shaping as if in need of this extra furlong. Placed twice from 3 starts last term on the AW and is of interest again sent back to Chelmsford for his in form yard.

One Touch 1pt win only 14/1 (830 Ffos Las) – Little success in a campaign over fences and offered more hope over the smaller obstacles 19 days ago. Will need to up his game from that run but this lightly raced sort should be able to get involved in a race of this magnitude with conditions to suit and another helping hand from the handicapper. Yard are 5 from 13 here over the last 12 months for a 38% strike rate with an LSP of +35.

Significantly 1pt win only 10/1 (236 Hamilton) – A winner at Royal Ascot last year who looked in need of the run on his recent reappearance run following a gelding operation. Yards runners are renowned for coming on in heaps for their first run and this one needs respecting back in this grade having undergone a wind op. Has a fair bit of weight to give away here but looks like a group horse in a handicap race so should be too good if putting his best foot forward.

Johnny Drama 0.5pt EW 18/1 4 places B365 (445 Redcar) – Eased 5lb for his latest reappearance run following 272 days off and should be much better for that run coming here. Was not given a hard time following a wind op last time out and ought to be able to get competitive in a race like this with the aide of todays 5lb claim. Yard and connections won this race last year.

Monday selections


The latest selections

Khulu 1pt win only 9/1 (515 Redcar) – Ran well when back on turf last time out, staying on into 4th over the shorter trip of 5f. Has a decent chance on the pick of his form here and gets 7lb worth of help from the claimer on board who has also shown plenty of promise in his short career to date.

Vandad 0.5pt EW 28/1 (610 Windsor) – Ran as good a race as he has done for some time last time out at Ascot. Was awkward at the off there and had to go a little too hard too early to put his best foot forward. On that evidence this further slide in the weights makes this one of interest here at what look to be very generous odds.

Jewel In My Crown 1pt win only 9/1 (710 Windsor) – Progressive last term and should be fitter now having a run under his belt. Comes here with the yard in form and is taken to continue that progression now. Has ideal trip and conditions so should go close.

A Fantastic Five for Sunday from #Fontwell #Kelso #Uttoxeter


The latest selections

Jacks A Legend 1pt win only 6/1 (204 Fontwell) – Not been seen in the best light on his last couple of runs but has a piece of form at Newbury back in December that would make a mockery of this race. On that form he looks to be a good 10lb well in here given his excellent 5lb claim and has little or no excuses today. This marks a big drop in class today too.

Tazka 0.5pt EW 18/1 4 places SkyBet (424 Fontwell) – Not seen at her best recently over inadequate trips and could fare much better upped markedly in distance and tackling 3 mile plus for the first time. Both wins have come at this track and the latest one from a 4lb higher mark had plenty of signs that todays trip could well play to her strengths. 3lb taken off by the yards claimer and conditions look perfect.

Tara Niece 1pt win only 12/1 (459 Fontwell) – Should be much sharper for her latest run following a 643 day lay off and could take a big step forward here today. Shaped as if retaining ability last time out and is taken to reverse the form with the re opposing winner that day The Height Of Fame with whom she is 12lb better off at the weights with now. Emma Lavelle sends just this one runner and Adam Wedge comes in to take just the one ride. Independance rates the main danger if able to cope with the step up in trip.

Newtown Boy 1pt win only 16/1 (322 Kelso) – Fourth in this race last term from 6lb higher mark and not been seen since that race. Has gone well fresh in the past however and yard certainly know how to get one ready. Up against some in form rivals today but a few are starting to look exposed and at these prices a small nibble has to be had. Trainer/Jockey combo are a profitable one to follow too so no forlorn hope as the markets would suggest.

Destrier 1pt win only 11/2 (331 Uttoxeter) – Got up to win on the line when upped in trip for the first time last time out in a race that looked perfect for his first attempt at the longer trip. Won in a head bob from the re opposing Barton Knoll and we fancy him to confirm that form here again today for the very much in form Dan Skelton who is 8 from 16 for a 50% strike in the last 14 days. Manofthemountain would be very dangerous if the recent wind op has the desired affect so keep an eye on the market for that one too. Selection still looks pretty well treated on old form.

Tuesday’s Selections from #Bath #Newcastle


The latest selections

Sapphire Moon 1pt win only 12/1 (220 Bath) – One of 3 in the race for A Carroll and would appear to be the pick on jockey bookings. Will need to be ready following 7 months off the track but that’s not such a big ask over these sprint trips. Still a maiden after 10 runs but went close on more than 1 occasion last year and would not have to improve much to get involved here.

Nusa Dua 1pt win only 11/1 (320 Bath) – Open to bounds of improvement sent handicapping for the first time and upped markedly in trip. George Rooke is 3 wins and 3 placed from 10 for the yard over the past 12 months with a LSP of +32 so is noteworthy getting on board this one for the first time.

Idoapologise 1pt win only 11/1 (730 Newcastle) – Course winner who is sent significantly back up in trip following a few lesser runs. Has had a wind op and if that has the desired effect then this one is sitting on a very attractive mark. Has a very valuable 5lb taken off by R Sexton who is 5 from 22 at the track this year so certainly knows how to get one home.
