Two great and informative days at Newmarket this week which helped put the private service well in profit this month.
I was told about the Bill Turner two year old Twist and Shout weeks ago and was shocked to see him at 20/1 in the morning markets. My members and I helped ourselves to plenty of that and watched in agony as he was beaten into third in a three way photo. What was galling was I thought he lost his action briefly in the last furlong which surely cost him victory.
He is a nice horse and column readers should watch out for him as he will win races. It really was great to be back at HQ and in some decent weather watching racing on decent ground. Sir Henry Cecil has his horses more forward than any of the other major Newmarket yards and this was borne out by a number of successes this week. The great man will be a real force this year and looked much healthier than he did several months ago which was great to see.
Today though we see the Scottish National at Ayr and Aintree hero Auroras Encore goes for a famous double after landing the Aintree version. It really would take an amazing effort after his exertions a fortnight ago but it is possible. A certain Red Rum did it oh and to remind you how great he was there was only a week between the races then!! Lets not forget Auroras Encore was just pipped in this last year and looks set to give it a real go. My selection though is a horse who skipped Aintree to wait for this and I think he will run an almighty race. It’s a horse I gave as a confident bet at Cheltenham and he looked like winning until falling at the second last fence. The annoying thing was he had jumped well and it was most unlike him. The horse is Rival D’estruval and he must be backed at 7/1 each way with Bet365 who are going 5 places. He should get into a nice rhythm and looks the ideal type for this race. I gather he is flying at home with no damage done by the fall at the Festival. I think he is worth a TGD special Max each way.
Enjoy what is always a great spectacle, my private members will be betting big at Newbury on the flat after a good week.
Join us and let me do the work and you back the winners.
Back next Saturday.
