Well another record in the bag for Aidan O’Brien with Saxon Warrior winning the Racing Post Trophy giving him his 26th group one success of the year. You have to say Aidan is a genius however I truly believe that Roaring Lion was a very unlucky loser as he got buffeted by the strong wind and if he had delayed his challenge a little longer the Irish colt would not have been able to get back up. I actually think that Roaring Lion has strong claims for next years 2,000gns.
I was also a little gutted as I had Roaring Lion in a double with a 25/1 winner Meadowcroft Boy who I put up as a tip on both Betting Opportunity and Fold4Gold.
This brings me onto an important point as too many people keep looking for new tipsters when really they would be far better off sticking with tried and tested services who have performed well over time.
My two services are possibly the longest that have been with BetFan and both are showing profits in excess of a 1000 points each. Yes of course they have losing months but it’s only long term profits that count. It’s just a shame not enough punters realise this as all they want is immediate gratification.
Howie’s Hottie this week is Top Diktat from Gary Moores yard who runs in the 4:00 Nottingham. The old boy is not as good as he once was but he did win this race two years ago off a much higher rating.
Naadirr trainer K.Ryan – Ran well at Doncaster staying on an is on a competitive mark.
Als Memory trainer D.Evans – Another who has dropped in the weights and is in good form.
Meadowcroft Boy trainer A.Whillams – This the horse I tipped up at 25/1 who romped home at Kelso on Saturday. He is on a much reduced rating these days and could well go in again but you won’t get big odds next time.
Traffic Fluide trainer G.Moore – Ran well at Aintree first time out this season and will be fitter next time.
