A very busy day of racing today and we have a few fancies.
1:50 Brighton - RED ALERT (7/2) - 1pt WIN - A horse who could prove too be extremely well handicapped returning to the course and distance. The potential danger is CAPPANANTY CON. So we will also be playing 0.25pts (0.5pt Total) on the combination forecast.
3:00 Brighton - TIN HAT (12/1 - 4 Places) - 0.5pts EW - A wide open handicap and plenty have changed but this horse will be trying and is handicapped to at least give us a good run for our money.
3:20 Thirsk - AZANO + SYMBOLIZE - 0.5pts (1pt Total) - Combination/Reverse Forecast - On paper i think the two horses above have the race between them largely due to the fact that PRINCE EIJI is unlikely to like pace profile of this race. It’s very difficult to pick just one for the win bet so I’ve opted for the combination forecast instead.
3:45 Musselburgh - MAKANAH (11/2) - 0.5pts EW - This is a really good race and I am strongly of the opinion that it will have been the long term target for this horse. In an ideal world I would have liked a bit more rain and 3 places on offer because I do think that JABBAROCKIE is a major danger so once again we will look to cover all the bases wirh a 0.25pts (0.5pt Total) on the combination forecast.
4:55 Musselburgh - WRITTEN BROADCAST (10/1) - 0.5pts EW - This is another competitive handicap but I simply think this horse is overpriced and his connections agree. He should get a race run to suit under Paul Hanagan.
TOTAL STAKE = 6pts
AUGUST P/L = +3.01pts
