Well tomorrow we will find out if the people of Scotland vote for independence. I think I’m entitled to have my say as my gran was born in Glasgow’s Gorbals. My mums name was Shaw and grannies maiden name was Gordon and you can’t get more sweaty than that.
Scotland deserves the chance to go it alone and anyone that has backed the no vote at 1/4 must be biting their fingers to the bone. Also what with two of the most hated Englishmen of our time David Cameron and David Beckham up there campaigning the yes vote gains even more momentum. Add to that most English people couldn’t care less which way it goes and most of those who in live in Southern England get a nose bleed if they go past Watford.
Having said I would be happy with Scottish independence I’m not a fan of the Scottish leader and hope he doesn’t turn it into a North Korea type nation with all the population having to have Alec Salmond haircuts.
Its been a good week for my tipping service Fold4Gold who tipped up Kiyoshi at 12/1 and The Corsican at 7/1 and advised the double paying over 90/1.
Now I call that hot tipping however I see many tipsters recently have been selecting short price winners and when a 6/4 chance goes in carrying on like they have won the lottery using words like amazing, superb, brilliant, etc, etc god knows what they will say if they ever tip one over 5/1.
Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong backing shorties but a losing long sequence can wipe you out. With my 90/1 double my clients could actually go months without a winner and still be in profit but believe me they won’t as there are plenty more big winners in the pipeline.
We have some nice racing today with something to suit most of us with super cards at Listowel in Ireland and at Yarmouth and it is to Yarmouth in the 2.50 that we have found Howies Hottie.
I’m going for the Julia Fielden trained Honeymoon Express who will be ridden by Julias daughter Shelly Birkett an excellent 5lb claimer. The filly is a course and distance winner and although her recent form falls short of what is required my Newmarket contacts tell me she has been working very well on the trainers gallops which makes me think we might get a bit of value in the market as long as my work watchers have not passed on the same info to the bookies.
Walter De La Mere trainer Anabel Murphy – Useful hurdler who ran on the flat finding 12 furlongs to short. A step up in trip could be the answer.
Inspector Norse trainer S.Kirk – Stayed on strongly at Epsom which says a step up to 10 furlongs will help the horse to get his head back in front.
Big Baz trainer W.Muir – Running well without winning. When the ground gets softer he will no doubt be in line for the gold medal.
Dannyday trainer Sir M.Stoute – Ran in a Doncaster juvenile maiden and noted staying on from the back after encountering traffic problems. If this colt doesn’t win this season I’m a Dutchman and I have no intention of changing my name to DeGroot.
Secateur trainer J.Gosden – Ran in the same race as Dannyday and also stayed on from the rear and will improve greatly for the experience.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
