This is one of my favourite weeks of the year with a trip to York for the Dante meeting. The quality of racing and social life is second to none. Since the drainage work has been done the track is now a specialist course, some horses just don’t handle it, so before betting make sure it’s ran well there before.
Even at 2am you can get great info in York, last year myself and a leading jockey were asked to get off a certain nightclubs revolving dance floor, I had to bundle him into a taxi, he was riding a hot fav’ the next day, needless to say it didn’t win, a max lay!
Although the days of me clubbing are over I now much prefer having a clear head and nothing beats a morning jog around the knavesmire.
I’ll tweet the latest going and any good late info I get.
Particularly excited to see our 50/1 Ante Post Derby bet JACK HOBBS in the Dante itself, he’s a monster!
Last week’s new entries to the hotlist:
GOODNIGHTSUZY, INNOCENT TOUCH, BELLE D’OR, CARTMELL CLEAVE, RAW IMPULSE & FRENCH DRESSING.
Everyone was raving about Speculative Bid’s win at Ascot how much he’ll be a good thing back there for the Hunt Cup & agree he’ll have an obvious chance but anyone can spot that. I was taken with RUSSIAN REALM’s run although finishing 14th on his first start for D O’Meara & this is the one to get on for that race as soon as it’s priced up.
My Punt of The Day: 8:35 Chelmsford – Jubilee Brig – Win Bet
Back next Tuesday.
