Disappointing day yesterday. Thought we still should have had 2 wins though with 2 of our tips getting nightmare trips through their races (finished 2nd and 3rd). Today’s tips are below. 2:00 Chelmsford - RHUBARB BIKINI (12/1) - 0.50pt WIN - A risky bet (just like the one below) but there are plenty of reasons to believe that he may bounce back to form today. I do however think he’s a first or last kind of horse so no EW play.
2:10 Catterick - DURCHILL (25/1) - 0.25pts EW - This is a very risky bet but this is the weakest race he’s contested on turf for sometime. If he’s been freshened you by the break then I think he’ll outrun his odds.
5:15 Ffos Las - RIGHT ACTION (10/3) - 1pt WIN - This horse is now in the care of David Evans. Looking at his last 3 runs in turf handicaps the average OR’s were 75/73/76. Today’s race has an average OR of just 57 so it’s a big drop in the calibre of opposition and the booking of Murphy certainly won’t hurt his chances.
6:00 Lingfield - BUNGLEDUPINBLUE (15/2) - 0.5pts EW - The negative for this horse is the draw which will certainly make life difficult for Laura but the horse has the class to win this race and is apparently fighting fit and ready to go.
6:30 Lingfield - REPERTOIRE (5/2) - 1pt WIN - This horse is a bit of a tricky customer but I think his connections have found him a nice spot here. It’s not going to be easy though as both KONDRATIEV WAVE and GLOVES LYNCH are fancied too. TOTAL STAKE = 4pts
AUGUST P/L = +2.01pts
