It’s been a frustrating week. We have had a few winners yet we end the week only breaking even. We had a 16/1 shot coming 2nd and also a 9/2 shot doing the same. One place better would have made such a difference.
Mark Crehan has a couple of rides booked today he rides MERSEY which is his 2nd ride under rules for his boss. 33/1 is a hearty price but not it’s probably right the horse needs to bounce back. Maybe Mark can make the difference. He has a better chance tomorrow on a horse he knows well CHANEL PACKET Chelmsford 16:50.
Jumper To Follow
I said last week that we would have another horse to follow this week and this one RATHER BE hasn’t been seen since his gutsy 2nd in the Close Brothers Novices\’ Handicap Chase 2m 4f 78y (Listed) £70,000 added 5yo+ 19 runners that day at the festival and this guy ran really well. Only just getting beaten. He was a winner of a large field group 3 hurdle race and can really make his mark chasing this year.
He seams to switch on in big field events where I guess the hustle and bustle keeps him interested. They were planning on running him before the Bet Victor gold cup on the 17/11/2018 at the November meeting. But time is short and they think he might go well fresh. Reports are that he has summered really well and is an exciting prospect this year.
Today’s Free Tips
Kempton 7-00 Handicap (Class 4) 6f – Jack Taylor 9/1 didn’t get much of a run last time. Hustled at the start and no clear run as he tried to improve with only a furlong to go. That was a really positive performance and from a better draw today he can gain a better race position. He will kick a furlong out and hopefully his turn of foot will see him home first. Looks a bargain at the price!
Redcar 1-20 Seller (Class 6) 8f – TOPMEUP is a horse we have backed on the main service a couple of times and he’s had excuses. The info came directly from the stable that they thought he would win. That still applies and he could go in today at 13/2 it’s worth a shot. Jazzy girl is one for the forecast Thanks Matt
