It’s with great sadness we have to report the untimely death of Walter Swinburn. Walter nicknamed the choirboy because of his fresh faced young looks was a master of his art in the eighties and nineties winning the Derby three times on the great Shergar, Shahrastani and Lammtarra.
Nobody would ever forget his romp on Shergar in 1981 when at 19 he became the youngest jockey ever to win the great race. Among his other big wins were the Arc, King George at Ascot and the Breeders Cup.
Well were you one of the astute ones who took the chance of joining my Fast Cash Racing as there has hardly been a losing bet this month and if there is we make a slight increase in stakes and losses are back in our pocket plus a profit.
To me this is a second income service where we tell you how much to stake in pounds not points, where to put the bet on and then hopefully sit back and collect your profit. Of course unlike other services we have no interest if the horse wins or not as long as it makes the frame.
Today we have a fabulous days jumping at Newbury and I’m playing Howies Hottie in the 1.30 a novices handicap chase over the 3 mile trip. My tip is Caracci Apache from Nicky Henderson’s yard. The horse has been plagued by niggles but if you look back over his hurdle form he has a win over the classy Blaklion to his credit.
I’m sure top connections will have him well schooled and he represents decent each way value.
Topaling trainer M.Tompkins – Has dropped in the ratings to a competitive mark.
Sennocian Star trainer M.Johnston – Also starting to look well handicapped.
Secret Millionaire trainer S.Harris – Old boy who still show ability in low grade races.
Starchitect trainer D.Pipe – Might have needed his chase debut and will have learnt from the experience.
Back next Wednesday be lucky.
