Hello and welcome to another Tuesday newsletter. We don’t have much to report from our main service today. The first couple of weeks of February have been a little slow and very flat. We have not lost much at all it has just been and up and down week. Like we always say keeping hold of it is the most important thing. We are certainly doing that!
Double blow this week for Gary Moore as AR Mad comes out of his last race lame and VIOLET DANCER has a leg injury so will be out for the rest of the season. Let’s hope both horses come back from this.
We backed AFFAIRE D’HONNEUR again over the weekend. For a novice maiden the horse ran a mighty race even when all the stats were against it. Yet It was missing the kick at the standing start that cost the horse any chance in the race. The jockey had reported the kick back to be fierce and after taking a clump of mud to the face the horse at half was left at the back a couple of lengths a drift. He stayed on strongly all the way in the home straight to overtake 18 horses and finish 4th. The winner had already flown but it was a really eye catching performance.
Trainer Harry Whittington has said that they think he will be a very nice horse with time. They are trying to keep the horse a novice. Yet feel he could win a similar big handicap in which case the prize money would be worthwhile to lose the novice tag. He may go for the Swinton hurdle at Haydock next. I can see Haydock suiting this strong galloping type.
Another horse we are following BELLA won nicely on Monday and actually went off a decent price after trading early at 8/11 won at 11/10. The horse won at 25/1 in the first race since we mentioned the horse should be on your following list.
Next week I am going to share with you any other horses from this very special bloodline which is littered with winners and has produced group level horses.
Today we just have 2 bets on the main service so instead of giving out a bet today for free. I shall give you a winner in waiting. We backed this horse on the same day as AFFAIRE and had similar in running comments – slowly away the horse missed the break and trailed the field before staying on gamely but it was already over. The horse is reported as bouncing at home and should win very soon so watch out for MULTITASK. The ideal next race would be 7f at Lingfield park. After staying on over 6f the step up should be ideal so let’s hope Mr MADGWICK can find a suitable race soon.
