Lets start with the bad bit its been a miserable week freezing here in Newmarket though we have gone 3 out of 4 winners on the Gambling Don private service.
I’ve been to Ireland where it was wet and miserable as opposed to snowy and miserable. Looking at horses with a view to buy is never easy in Ireland as everyone
thinks theirs is the new Denman but you get to talk racing with Irish racing people and that’s as good as it gets.
I returned empty handed on the horse front but with some good new Irish contacts which my members will be benefitting from as we head towards Cheltenham at pace.
And it’s Cheltenham I’m heading to today with Penny in tow who is minus a tenner she bet me it would be off. I know what your thinking I shouldn’t take the money, but I have!
Trials day is always exciting but made all the more so as we have been starved of good National Hunt action recently. Remember the big yards have better facilities so can carry on working on the horses fitness, however, even the bigger operations have been snowbound so it will be interesting to see who can see out the longer trips on what’s sure to be testing ground.
For our Saturday selection we are going for the 12.40 and a horse I have been waiting to reappear since his incredible victory on Boxing day. He is Rajdhani Express who slaughtered his field that day with Sam Whaley Cohen aboard. My Henderson contact tells me they think this horse is exceptional and I will be very surprised if given a clear round he doesn’t take this before going on to much better things. Betvictor seem to want to get him and are offering 4/1 as I write. Kindly snap his hand off and lets pay him back for those awful adverts.
The rest of the card looks tricky but we have two other good bets for the private service which despite being a trying time for any service we are still in profit for the month. Cheltenham is on the horizon, literally for me today and also in terms of the festival. Our ante post last week has sparked the other betfan tipsters into a Cheltenham frenzy I see which is great for you guys. My members will be on all my Cheltenham portfolio in the coming weeks and we will start the Festival week with some big price vouchers laid out on the table. Why not join us it should be the best one ever and after this wet and freezing spell we all deserve it.
Have a great day watching Cheltenham!
Back next Saturday.
