Well I don’t know about you but I have certainly over indulged this Christmas it made getting out of bed at 4:30 this morning very difficult indeed if only I left that glass of 1982 port in the bottle.
Overall this year has been really good for members as we hit another year of profit. Not only that but a 3 figure profit that is great for a service that only plays 1 point level stakes and of course the many profitable side bets that we shared with our members that are not recorded in our final results made the year even sweeter. We are not done yet though and we have a great opportunity to add to our totals over the next week. I hope we can do just that!
Ok let’s get to the nitty gritty with our Boxing Day horses in focus.

Today’s Horses In Focus
Kempton 12:45 Novices Hurdle (Class 2) 16f – The two with interlinked form lines are SOLOMON GREY AND IFTHECAPFITS at the prices I would rather have the first named at 12/1 as I think the horse improved on the clock after the race which he was beaten by ifthecapfits. Which would mean that horse would need to improve again. While SIMPLY THE BETTS at 11/2 looks like a horse on the up and is the token selection in the race at the right kind of price.
Kempton 1:20 Handicap Chase (Class 3) 20f – Plenty in this race that have potential to be 140+ rated horses as we look to the figures it is the 2 at the biggest prices that come out best BEGGARS WISH 20/1 AND BAD BOY DU POULDU 16/1 with TOUCH KICK 8/1 showing vast improvement in his last 2 races. Of course there are a few that could surpass the form already on show notably reigning supreme but in a race that could go any way I would play a larger each way bet on TOUCH KICK and a couple of smaller bets on the other two but probably win only to keep stakes down.
Kempton 1:55 Novices/Maiden Chase (Class 1) – I like the chance of FOUNTAINS WINDFALL 7/1 here the horse will have to have got over the fall that saw him crash out at Newbury but he was still going well that day at 3 out and he was a short priced favourite for the race. I think if he jumps well today he can win this race.
Kempton 2:30 Conditions Hurdle (Class 1) 16f – This is a tough race to work out with odds on favourite BUVEUR DAIR not appearing anywhere near on our speed list THE NEW ONE comes out best but is largely a horse I have avoided over the years as there is never any value in backing him. Although totally wrong at the weights I’m gonna give a little squeak to Moyaayed at 66/1 as I think this flat track will bring out his flat speed yes crazy but I’ve seen crazy things happen before.
Kempton 3:05 King George VI Chase (Grade 1) 24f – BRISTOL DE MAI was impressive last race and he fits the profile for the race so at 4/1 he is the selection. I am going to give a big each way should for TEA FOR TWO 28/1 and hope all 8 run we said the horse was set to improve at the start of last year and since then he has gone from strength to strength. Yet probably doesn’t win as often as he should.
Kempton 3:40 Handicap Hurdle (Class 3) 21f – I like 2 in this race at working mans prices the first is JALEO at 16/1 and the other is WOLFCATCHER at 20/1 both horses should give a decent run for the money in a race that will be tough to win. I couldn’t separate them so best to back both and hope for a win!
That’s it for today, I hope you all have a great Boxing Day and back some winners. Thanks for your support during 2017!
