Last Weeks column contained…
“The best solution for me is the old adage the best horses in the best races and I will shortlist down on quality, does this mean winners will be missed? of course but overall it’s the best policy for these bumper days. So on that logic lets go to the best horse in the best race which is the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket where the ground is super quick. 4.35 is the time and a high quality field assembles but they will all have to go to beat Limato who has everything in his favour here. The veteran Trainer Henry Candy won with his other Sprinting Star Twilight Son at Ascot but Limato is his ace in the pack and can win well at a juicy 6/1 with Ladbrokes.”
The result Limato storms to an easy victory! Thank you for the messages I’m glad so many of you lumped on I do believe Limato is the best sprinter in Europe and I backed my judgement and I’m glad so many of BetFan readers did too! I want this column to inform, entertain and enrich!
My Club members were laughing as they were told to go max win so please if your not already involved then sign up because you will be on the very best bets out there!
Today is another superb day of racing as the sport continues with its view that racing fans go into cold storage for six days and at Market Rasen there is a superb Summer Jumps meeting (club members have three big gambles for there so get involved and receive these).
For this column we’re off to Newbury where the big race is the Super Sprint however that should be filed in the impossible section at the beginning of it underlined. So lets go to a high quality renewal of the Group 3 Hackwood Stakes at 3.35. The James Fanshawe trained The Tin Man is fave and must have a big chance but he flopped last time out when well backed and the form of his Windsor win has far from worked out so lets take him on. At the moment Godolphin could win with the Stable Cat and mouse he’s chasing and they have Charming Thought who looks well worth his shot in this grade. The horse I suggest we back to win this however is Ibn Malik @ 15/2 with Coral from the Charlie Hills yard as for me he has by far the best form on offer and I have been waiting for this horse to get dropped back in trip.
As a 2 year old he ran Galileo Gold to half a length and he has several other top class group 2 level performances. He has always shown plenty of pace and I can see him picking these off in the last half furlong and asserting. Whatever the result there is no way he should be 15/2!!!
So lets go for another big priced winner, this is the only Saturday Column you will ever need, be lucky!
Back next Saturday.
