A really strong week for the Don ended on a high yesterday with Out Do landing the Great St Wilfred at Ripon for my private service @ a lovely 11/1 first thing. At the risk of repeating myself this David O’Meara is a master of producing a horse at it’s very best on the big day and this was another perfectly executed coup.
I can see Mr O’Meara having a very good few days! This was the second Saturday in a row I’ve watched from home even though Newmarket was on my main bets were at Newbury and up at Ripon. Also the frankly ludicrous Grey horse race was on at Newmarket and though many would see it as a rather pointless protest to not attend I felt it was worthwhile. Novelty and gimmicky things like this don’t bring new people into our game they just look stupid.
The Chief Executive of Ladbroke said this week the new generations are not betting on racing and of course now when you switch to an online Bookmakers home pages on you see adverts for football first so racing needs to fight its corner.
What I can say is that anyone who goes to York next week will be hooked on the game for life because that place does everything perfectly in all enclosures. We are set for four incredible days racing on the Knavesmire and my members will be betting big all four days. The Don will spend today and tomorrow working on these 4 days and speaking to people. Join us there is no better week to get involved.
Big Group 1s every day and wonderfully tough handicaps is what makes Racing the greatest sport in the World and needs to be celebrated.
Pontefract a lovely track in its own right is the source of our Sunday special in the 4.20.
William Haggas another Trainer who targets the Ebor Meeting with a passion sends up Oxsana and a win bet is called for @ 100/30 with William Hill. Oxsana was third in a good race last time and was a shade unlucky how it panned out. That’s the best form on offer and that price looks generous to me and should be snapped up.
Lets hope Oxsana does the business then it’s all systems go for one of the highlights of the year. Join my private service because as my members were reminded yesterday it always pays to Trust in the Don!
Back next Sunday.
