Well Cheltenham threw up a few surprises. I have never seen the ground so testing at the meeting and it certainly told. Not only did the weather play a part here it is through out racing right now. It’s hard to say how it effects horses but this recent cold snap when we should be heading into spring will have some effect. Also plenty of snow has stopped some horses from training. On the plus side we landed 16/1 advised winner this week with EMIGRATED 10/1 sp that paid back a few losses and has left us a good platform to build on this week.
On paper we have some really good bets and I’m certainly positive that we can make a decent return this month.
TUESDAY’S HORSES IN FOCUS
Newcastle 5-35 Handicap (Class 2) 16f – DUBAWI FIFTY is clear favourite and strong in the market but I’m going to give a chance on 8/1 shot CONTINUUM. Quite a fragile horse but one with plenty of ability. He posted a decent rating last run and has gone bigger in the past. I certainly prefer the odds on offer here even with the risk of a bad run. Certainly, capable of doing better.
Newcastle 8-45 Handicap (Class 4) 6f – HAROME looks to be getting stronger as he ages, now a 4 year old he has been a stiff mark for a while but the horse has lots of potential they thought he would progress to listed level by the time he was 5 so keep this one in your diary they think he is a nice horse who needed time and experience may need the run today but is as fit as they can get him at home is the advice but 16/1 I think has some value with that considered. ONE TO LOOK OUT FOR!
I have an account bet at Wetherby today as well and I was going to share here but non runners in the race have seen the price fall and now it doesn’t represent much in the way of value sadly so I won’t mention it here we could have a winner from these 2 bets above.
