Well this weeks column is all about singing Cliff Richards big hit Congratulations and giving all of us that tipped the big Grand National winner a pat on the back.
Betfans Gambling Don, Andy Bell, Bankers Bonus and the only newspaper tipster was Aussie Jim McGrath of the Telegraph who all managed to find Pinaeu De Re.
However the biggest bottle of bubbly must go to ice cool Leighton Aspell for riding the perfect race and trainer Dr Richard Newland for buying the horse on the cheap in Ireland and spotting the untapped potential of the gallant gelding.
Now regarding my Wednesday articles how many of you followed my advice of a couple of weeks ago and are on my Spring Sting Patent?
A £10 Each Way patent at advised odds 33/1 Sweet Lightning 4th, Pineau De Re 20/1 1st would so far have landed you £540 on the place double, £260 on the National winner, plus £90 on a place in the Lincoln. So you would have nearly £900 to come as things stand.
Now for the even better news, those of you who take notice of what I say will be hoping Parbold can do the biz in the 2000, gns at Newmarket in May as you stand to win over 6 grand if the colt is placed plus over 8 grand on the double with the National winner. All in it would total up to well over £15,000.
Myself if Parbold did manage it I will go and buy an island in the Caribbean and if it doesn’t we are all still miles ahead of the game.
To keep you all in the loop I am currently working on an ante-post double for the Oaks and Derby but haven’t made my mind up yet if I’m prepared to put the bet up as a freebie or not. After all I work very hard at finding these type of bets and not everything in life can be free.
As you can all see and I have proved time and time again my tipping is on a different level to the rest as some of my bets can win you life changing amounts of money.
The question you all need to ask yourself is do I want to make a few quid or even a small 2nd income or do you want life changing wins for small stakes?
At the end of the day I can do both but it’s the bank busting multiples that get me excited.
Last Wednesday Howies Hottie romped in at an amazing 10/1 s/p. It just goes to show all the rubbish Tanya talks on Channel 4 about drifters can’t win. Just remember the horse doesn’t know what price it is.
This weeks hottie is Vitznau in the 2.30 Lingfield. The gelding is an old timer who was once rated in the hundreds when trained by the Hannons. The gelding has regressed over the years and is now rated 50.
He is not the most reliable animal in the world but still retains ability especially now that he is back over an easy mile which should suit in a race that won’t take much winning.
Cheltenian trainer B.Hobbs – 4th at Aintree over a distance a shade to far. A return to 2 miles might be the answer.
Rocky Creek trainer P.Nicholls – Was going as well as anyting in the National until running out of petrol. Back over park fences over a shorter trip he can go very close next time out.
Gregori trainer B.Meehan – Front runner who is difficult to peg back and can also win races on the turf.
Glorious Protector trainer E.Walker – Might just have needed the run at Lingfield last week to put an edge on him. Looks an improved horse and should soon be winning
Harry Hurricane trainer G.Baker – After a slow start this juvenile made good ground and can put this experience to good use next time.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
