A great start to the week when my only bet & free tip on Tuesday HIGH CHURCH bolted up. I send my tips to subscribers at 8am & they were all on at 15/8 before the newsletter went out by which point it was 6/4.
The horse I flagged up as my top horse to follow BATTERSEA, who won at 8/1 for us last week, well two of the horses he had behind him in his previous race at Ascot are out today and must be strong fancies KINSHASA in the 4:30 at Yarmouth & NABATEAN 4:50 Chepstow.
Last week was dominated by the excellent Doncaster meeting and the epic Battle of Britain Tipster challenge between myself and Andy Bell. There was some great banter on social media as it went down to the last race before Bellie sneaked it in a photo finish, well done to him and for being so gracious in victory (not) but the real winners were the subscribers who showed a tidy profit.
The highlight of the meeting for me was Muthmir who gave us another big sprint race winner, what a great early price of 6/1 and don’t oppose this horse in any company if the grounds quick. Hopefully we can do it again the week at Ayr with numerous big field sprints, one thing to be wary of at this meeting is the draw basis can change from day to day, if one side wins the Bronze Cup easily they’ll flood the track with water and it will be a disadvantage the next day, but that means we can go against the crowd & get some great early prices. This is my Cheltenham festival with two days at Hamilton Park to follow, so hopefully my liver can stand it and if you see me there I’ll buy you a beer.
Another big betting event is this Thursday’s Scottish Independence vote and at the moment the polls are tighter than Simon Holden’s wallet but I expect the No vote to edge, if it’s a Yes I’ll do a handstand in the winners enclosure before the first race at Ayr on Friday whilst wearing a kilt!
This week’s new additions to the hotlist: KISUMU, RIO RONALDO, ARAGOSTA & WAADY.
Tuesday’s Free Tip:
4:30 Yarmouth – KINSHASA – Win Bet 7/4 (bet365)
Until next Tuesday, Happy Punting!
