For the second week running our Tuesday free tip SAMAHEART bolted up, advised at 6s, 11/2 sp.
When at Musselburgh I spoke to a bookie who said they hadn’t layed a £500 bet all year and the on-course market was dying, I agreed, but explained I almost never bet heavily on track now as there is better value in the best morning prices and with most bookies offering the great best odds guaranteed concession, there is not much point betting on-course and I advise everyone to do the same.
I’ve been giving you my horses added to my ‘hotlist’ every week but haven’t gave another ‘hot’ race, the previous two I highlighted won by Cannock Chase & Conneticut have been very profitable to follow and I think there is another one run recently at Ascot.
The race was won by BATTERSEA who is improving rapidly and could even benefit for a step up in trip. OASIS FANTASY ran well in second but needed a stronger pace and would also handle a step up in trip. The third MAID IN RIO has franked the form by winning twice and maybe not stopped yet. NABATEAN was unplaced, but hampered and might prefer softer ground. KINSHASA was well backed favourite and slightly disappointing but will win again. A few of these are entered this week so watch out.
I’m heading down to Glourious Goodwood for a couple of days mainly as I have a runner on Tuesday but it’s an impossible 26 runner handicap and will be more of a social occasion, boating jacket, cravat and panama hat all packed.
My main bet & free on Tuesday is HAVANA COOLER in the 3:40 current best price 4/1 almost everywhere.
Until next Tuesday, Happy Punting!
Back next Tuesday.
