The big news of the week is the sacking of David Moyes at Man Utd which to me gives the World of football even less creditability than ever. It’s a playground ruled by money maniacs on giant ego trips.
My message to the Glazers is that when Sir Alex took over in 1986 it took him until 1990 to win a trophy so patience can be a virtue.
Moyes can look forward to a golden handshake from the Glazers and by keeping Utd out of Europe I’m sure Nigel Farage could use him as a Ukip M.P.
Talking of managers who do you think is the best this season?
In my opinion it’s between Tony Pulis at Palace who has done wonders to keep them up and Alan Pardew at Newcastle who is an unsung hero having to work with Mike Ashley the nutty owner who only wants to sell their best players. If these two guys were with top teams there is knowing what they could achieve in the game and they are both British.
Back on the racing front I have to report that Parbold could only manage 5th in his trial but as I have told Richard Fahey he was trying to give weight away to good horses. Fahey has said he will let the dust settle before making any firm decision on the colt.
On the tipping side its been a super week for Bankers Bonus who landed a right touch at Lingfield on Good Friday when they had 14/1 and 2/1 winners also advising them in a double to put the icing on the cake for Easter.
This service is one of Betfans longest standing tipsters and I know some of you have been with us before and left during a poor run which I do understand as money does not grow on trees. However all punters must realise that every single adviser will have losing spells regardless of the hype they might shout about. The important thing is that if a tipster has been around for years you know they are reliable and trustworthy and in the bigger picture will make you a profit.
The point I’m trying to get across is if you have joined any service you should always be prepared to come back on board when you hear how well they are doing even if you were with them during a losing run in the past.
Howies Hotties have been in tremendous form over the last Month and lets hope we can keep it going today.
The selection is Da Do Run Run in the 2.20 Epsom. This lightly raced type is trained by Brian Meehan.The gelding has won over 11 furlongs at Lingfield so should act on this track and gets in here off a low weight. After his win last season they let him run in a group race at Royal Ascot which to me means they must have thought a bit of him.
Unfortunately he finished tailed off and didn’t run again but the thing is you must not always take racing at face value otherwise you will only back first or second favourites.
The likely fancied horse in the race Van Persie should go well but my tip is receiving weight and should be an each way juicy price.
Caladonia Lady trainer Jo Hughes – After a slow start she finished well over at Bath and if away on terms next time she can go very close.
Hawkeyethenoo trainer J.Goldie – Ran well at Lingfield on Good Friday but this gelding is much better on turf and a straight track.
Stepper Point trainer W.Muir – A return to 5 furlongs is the answer without doubt.
Tercel trainer Sir M.Stoute – Ran at Newmarket last week and I noted this one making steady late headway. Could well be suited by further than a mile.
Tabreek trainer R.Hannon – Ran in the same race as Tercel and another who will come on bundles for the experience.
Back next Wednesday have a good weeek and be lucky.
