  1. 2.55 Nottingham - Bobby Vee @ 8/1 Coral Looks on a good mark after putting in a seasonal best to finish 4th at Lingfield over 5f. Again over this trip with first time cheekpieces he should go well off 1lb lower.
  2. 5.25 Leicester - Flying Fantasy @ 9/1 Coral Flying Fantasy was just beaten a head on his final start for Stuart Williams and races here off just 1lb higher. He looks well handicapped on form and joins Michael Appleby who has a terrific record improving horses.
  3. Sorry BH I will make sure if I'm in the comp next month to put a reminder on my phone to make selections. I've been very bad recently and understand it's completely unfair on others who want to take part.
  4. Derby Preview This years Derby looks wide open with 11 horses within 3lbs of each other on RPRs. Cliffs of Moher and Cracksman are worthy favourites as the leading hopes from the two most powerful stables in both Ireland and Britain but they are probably short enough at the moment. Cracksman only just managed to beat Permian, who definitely has improved since then and Cliffs Of Moher's form ties in with that. The other horse priced at single figures is Eminent who ran a disappointing race in the Guineas after winning the Craven at Newmarket. He looked like he will appreciate the step up i
  5. 8.10 Goodwood - Saint Contest @ 5/1 Stan James
  6. 8.10 Wolverhampton - Little Stampy @ 4/1 StanJames
  7. I thought the same but they don't need good punters to adjust their prices anymore as they can just use the exchanges. Easier to use Betfair to set the prices and allow mugs to bet which is a shame. The minimum liability bookies must offer in NSW Australia seems to have had a positive effect over there so would be nice to see something similar up here.
  8. Interesting Mick! How would you pair selections together going forward? Would you back them all in doubles? That way you're going to have more money on certain bets which would be an issue.
  9. I'm sure you can make money this way as it sounds you're making the right selections. The big problem here is going to be variance I would say but if you have the bankroll to deal with it this could be a new approach for you. By combining selections the probability is reduced and you're going to have increased variance in your results, ie. longer losing runs. A long losing run could wipe out your betting bank even if you're making good bets so be careful there. Another issue is how you pair your selections together as you may end up doubling the wrong bets together or if you tie them all up ha
  10. 1.55 Limerick - Mr Showtime @ 10/3 Ladbrokes
  11. 2.55 York - Toofi @ 33/1 Ladbrokes Toofi was a massive eyecatcher the last day at Doncaster on his debut for Butler. On the wrong side of the track he traveled really sweetly but got no sort of run and ended up staying on under a soft ride. He wasn't beaten that far all things considered and he's come on significantly for the run each season so I expect him to strip fitter this time around. He's also down another 2lbs so there are plenty of positives about his chances tomorrow and he looks a cracking bet at the prices.
  12. 2.00 Beverley - The Right Choice @ 10/1 Coral
  13. I think the Nunthorpe is Friday. Doesn't it go Juddmonte, Yorkshire Oaks, Nunthorpe and then the Ebor? That could be a nice trip though. Chantilly looks a spectacular setting so I'll have to keep that in mind. Might be worth going while they have the Arc.
  14. 6.40 Killarney - Une Lavandiere @ 6/1 Bet365
  15. I'm looking into possibly heading over to England for one of the festivals this flat season or even just a good day of racing. What are your favourite courses or festivals when it comes to view of the track, access to the parade ring, facilities and just the experience in general?
  16. 5.25 Curragh - Flowerhill Nova @ 16/1 William Hill
  17. Anyone who has some sort of fancy at bigger prices in this race should get a few quid on ante post I reckon. Can't see the race not cutting up. Acapulco is out today at the Curragh so it will be interesting if she shows any improvement going to Ballydoyle. She takes on Ardhoomey who has been improving for Lyons. Profitable was smashed yesterday by Signs Of Blessing who I mentioned previously as being underappreciated giving weight over 5f. That's the best piece of sprinting form on offer and Rohaut believes he doesn't properly stay the stiff 6f at Ascot so the King's Stand is the tar
  18. Intransigent: 11th (16/1) Max Zorin: 3rd (25/1) Duretto: 3rd (15/2) Highland Pass: 2nd (7/2) St Marys: 1st (14/1) Great day for Balding today. Something to keep in mind for future meetings here.
  19. Tribal Path is the sort of horse who looks made for the test around Chester. He breaks extremely quickly and has well over 1f to get to the front before the bend so I don't think stall 10 will pose any problems. His best form is at tight turning tracks like Galway, Listowel and Bellewstown so he'll relish this test around Chester and could put his rivals under pressure front with little time to make up ground up the short run in. On top of that he actually looks to be on a fair mark given he's placed in some decent races off similar ratings. English is a trainer I rate and I wouldn't be surpri

  21. King's Stand Stakes (Tuesday 20th June) This looks a nice ante post betting race with several of the market leaders having other targets or some holes in their form. Lady Aurelia heads the betting at 9/2 best priced but is also entered in the Commonwealth Cup. She didn't stay a yard of 6 furlongs last year but did seem to settle better when winning on her reappearance at Keeneland although I would expect her to line up here. The concern I have with her is whether she will train on as Ward has his 2 year olds very forward as we saw with Acapulco who didn't train on a yard. Marsha
