I'm looking through the Racing Post website at tomorrow's 6.23 at Thirsk.

There is a horse called Fergie Time that is currently 66/1.  It last ran in a class 5 race on 27th July and came 10th out of 11.  

It is now running in a class 4 6f race (last two races were 7f).  Trained by Keith Dalgleish and ridden by Callum Rodgriuez.

My question is - what is the tactics behind stepping this horse up in class when they have been doing so poorly?  Is the trainer entering into a race he knows the horse will do badly in and then it will drop back in class, with a drop in handicap?  

I've always wondered about this, but never really asked before.

Standard practice but you are never privvy as to the reasons of any particular horse, Put it this way you have noticed something so back it anyway because you will feel like a right prat if you dont and it wins at 66/1

Yes mate, I did a small 25p EW and 50p to win.  You never know, right?

Well beaten twice at 7f, so try 6f.

Looked at the big 3/4 media tips where they all match for the afternoon meetings.  I can only find three so far and have to prepare lunch soon so the evening meetings will have to wait

2.35 Wolv Alphonse Le Grande. Currently generously priced at 7/2. I wonder why? Well, Laura Pearson and Ed Dunlop have shocking stats for 2yo races on the All weather; something like 7% and 5% respectively.  This horse may win but it won't be carrying my money

1.15 Nott Serenity.  the horse is ridden by Ceiron Fallon 12% strike rate and in great form at present 6/32 19% and trained by William Haggas who has a 20% strike rate with hos 2yo's.  All looks good for this one but its best price is 4/5.  If it drifts to evens I would quite happily put it into a Trixie

3.00 Nott Diamil Ridden by Rob Hornby (10%) and trained by Ralph Becket (17%).  Its chance is obvious I guess at a best price of 1/2.  However, the race has a few other possibilities so I think only mugs would back it at that price

Very late again today with analysis; hopefully back later with the evening meetings big 3/4 selections. 

More importantly for me I hope to find some decent jockey booking VFM horses to back

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first two have lost which leaves just the 2/5 favourite Diamil for favourite backers to get their cash back.  Not for me though and good luck to anyone who feels like trying to cash in.

Of the evening meetings I could only find one runner tipped by the big 3/4 in unison

8.23 Thirsk Myboymax which has a 6lbs penalty to carry.  According to the ATR expert since it is due to go up 9lbs it is 3lbs well in today. Impressive info eh? so much so I have had 50p to win at 9/4 to gross £1.62 should it run away with the spoils.  Meanwhile I have had £1 to win on Tefnut at 25/1( a more realist chance than Fergie Time for Keith Dalgleish imo)

Still not looked at main jockey/apprentice bets yet.  Slow as a tortoise today ?

3.20 Nb Attagirl £1 win at 14/1 & 50p win on Delmona at 2/1

Damn, I missed the OM horse and mine got beaten a head

3.35 Not Stargazer £1 win at 14/1

3.55 Nb Swayze (TM) £4 win at 6.6 = £21.95.  Had £1 win on Super cub at 6/1 as a saver

4.30 Nb Walhaan (JD) £2 win at 7.00 = £11.76 profit if it wins 

Definitely off for a break now

RESULTS UPDATE

No winners but came close with Attagirl beaten by a head.  I had a cover bet on the favourite but of course Oisin Murphy (the champ) beat me.  Forgot to have a cover bet on OM's horse in the 3.55 too where Swayzee got beat.  Loss on the day was £11.00 which drags my balance back to £699.49 (Bank £1056.22)

Most startling news of the day was that all 4 of the big 3/4 media tips in unison lost including a 2/5 favourite.  I wonder how much cash went to money heaven  from ardent followers of the main sporting press websites?

Loads of class racing tomorrow as it's a Saturday, let's hope that @The Brigadiercan find some winners for PL members
