4:10 Ayr Racing Tips (24th June) Fillies' Stakes (Listed Race) (Class 1) (3yo+)

Hong Kong Racing
AYR 4.10 LISTED Class – 5-furlongs – 12runners
Cosmopolitan Girl 3rd top rated possible pacesetter in stall 10 Futoon usually tracks the leaders and my 2nd top rated MERRY BANTER 33/1 is top rated and still only a 3year old and another possible pace setter but its in stall one, if getting to the front should prove hard to catch and is maybe worth the risk at the price with a small each way wager. 4:50 AYR - Class 3 – 5-furlongs – 8runners
Lightscameraction is dropped in class to run here and this easier course should suit my 3rd top rated Lexington Place is versatile and could set the pace here and my 2nd top rated COOLFITCH 4/1 is top rated and races prominetly most of the tme, being a 3year old it could still improve, the trainer has a 16% win rate and the jockey 12% so both positives. 5:25 AYR - Class 4 – 6-furlongs – 8runners
Not a race to get too involved in with 2 big unknowns in the race, Dandy Highwayman could possibly set the early pace and pushed along by the bottom weight, Vallarta is 2nd best on a time recorded here but top rated is BUCCANEERS VAULT 13/2 who can track the leaders or be held up for a late surge and hopefully get there in time but my stakes will be low. 5:20 NEWMARKET - Class 4 – 6-furlongs – 12runners
Faang is joint 2nd top rated but my need the run for fitness but a possible pacemaker. ZAMJAR 11/1 is the other joint 2nd top rated and this 3year old could still improve and the jockey is 1-2 for the stable. GOLD HUNTER 10/1 is my top rated and will relish a fast early pace to aim at and it ought to happen here with 3 good front runners but I will go with covering both the lead and finishing tactics with 2 each way bets at the prices. 6:30 HAYDOCK - Class 4 – 5-furlongs – 7runners
Lydia's Place a front-running sort and my 3rd top rated Annie Salts a front-running sort and my 2nd top rated MABS CROSS 6/4 seem to like to have a fast pace to aim at and this 3-year-old could complete its hat-trick in this race but the price isn't great but could be nice in a multi bet. 8:50 LINGFIELD - Class 5 – 5-furlongs – 8runners
Swendab is my 3rd top rated and a possible leader and could make the frame Mossgo is my 2nd top rated and another possible leader but needs good to firm going HURRICANE ALERT is top rated and a front-running type, plus there's another 2 unmentioned that are also known to lead so 5 of the 8, the 5lb claiming apprentice gets on well with this horse and moves it further clear on my ratings and if getting to the front could be hard to catch.

7:15 Bath Racing Tips (23rd June) Fillies' Handicap (Class 5) (3yo+ 0-75)

Racing Tips
7:15 BATH - Class 5 - 5furlongs 160yards – 7runners
Molly Jones could set the pace but finds this too far if a fast run race Powerful Dream is my 2nd top rated from a time recorded here JERSEY BREEZE 7/2 could be the pace setter and if getting to the front could prove hard to catch and I'm hoping it will lead from start to finish.

JERSEY BREEZE 7/2 1ST 8:10 AYR - Class 3 – 6furlongs – 11runners
Handsome Dude is 3rd top rated from a time at Doncaster this year and a hold-up type EXPLAIN 14/1 is 2nd top and a possible front runner and if getting to the front it may be capable of making the frame and worth a small each way wager FLYING PURSUIT 14/1 is top spot and has a decent 3lb claimer riding and ought to stay on strongly at the finish so maybe worth a small each-way wager.
SUMMARY: I'm going with 2 each way bets to cover both angles with a possible pacesetter and one that should be staying on at the finish.

Explain 16/1 2nd

Exact: £101.30 9:05 NEWMARKET - Class 5 – 5furlongs – 11runners
Noble Act is my 2nd top rated and a few spots ahead of my 3rd rated but may prefer further but depending how the betting goes but it may prove a better option to back this one each way rather than the selection if that one is made even shorter. PENNY DREADFUL 13/8 is my top rated and the only known front runner in the field so if getting to the front should prove very hard to catch and follow up from its win last time out but the price is very poor but maybe useful in a multi-bet.

Penny Dreadful 13/8 4th

Thursday, 22 June 2017

2:10 Ripon Racing Tips (22nd June) Claiming Stakes (Class 5) (3yo+)

2:10 RIPON - Class 5 Claimer – 6-furlongs – 6 runners
Tatlisu is my 2nd top rated and also 2nd best in on official figures so ought to go well MISHAAL 4/1 is my top rated and top on official figures and has dropped in class to run here and hopefully the drop will rejuvenate it back to winning ways, the biggest bugbear to me is the lack of a genuine front runner and I wouldn't be surprised to see the selection take on the pace setters role and lead all the way.

Mishaal 4/1 2nd
3:20 RIPON - Class 5 – 5-furlongs – 10 - runners
Pearl Noir a possible front runner and my 3rd top rated but can be worried out of contention if taken on early Lawless Louis possible pacesetter and my 2nd top rated and well drawn in stall 9 *RED ALERT 11/4 from stall 7 is another pacemaker and it looks likely the race will be won from the front.

5:20 CHELMSFORD - Class 5 - 5-furlongs - 10 runners
There are a few unknowns in this race so stakes will be kept low and the best call maybe with the top weighted SAVED MY BACON 6/1.

Saved My Bacon 6/1 1st 7:20 LINGFIELD - Class 6 - 5-furlongs - 6 - runners
A poor race but my top rated is PHAROH JAKE 3/1 and will stay on strongly at the finish chasing down Elusivity and Powerful Wind who are both front running sorts, my 2nd top rated Fabulous Flyer usually races behind the leaders for a strong finish but I'm going with the top rated selection Pharoh Jake.

Pharoh Jake 13/2 6th

8:20 LINGFIELD - Class 6 - 6-furlongs - 9 runners

In this race, I'm going with 2 selections in KEEP IT DARK 12/1 with a small each way bet and the same on PLEADINGS at 11/1 but stakes won't be too high.

Pleadings 11/1 4th
Keep it Dark 12/1 7th

3:20 Hamilton Racing Tips (21st June) Sam Collingwood-Cameron Handicap (Class 5) (3yo+ 0-75)

Lady Aurelia Wins at Ascot 20173:20 HAMILTON (Class 5 – 6-furlongs -8 runners)
Cosmic Chatter 9/1 could win if allowed an easy lead as my 2nd top rated. LOVE OASIS 3/1 just 1lb higher but loves this course.

SUMMARY: There's just a gap of 1lb between each runner from 5th best (69) to top (73) and I will go with backing both.

Love Oasis 10/3 5th 6:50 RIPON (Class 6 apprentices race – 6-furlongs – 9 runners)
Cool Strutter is 2nd top rated and stays on at the finish at this distance. HIT THE LIGHTS top rated from a time recorded at this course and the trainer is 4-20 here.

SUMMARY: 2 or possibly 3 capable of setting the pace but looks like it will set the race up for a strong finisher and hopefully that's Hit The Lights 8/1.

Hit The Lights 16/1 7th 7:10 CHELMSFORD (Class 2 – 5-furlongs – 9 runners)
Brother Tiger been doing well in class 4 this is a big leap in class Dynamo Walt 3rd top rated good trainer 17% and jockey 2-7 stats so expected to go well BOSHAM 12/1 is top rated and may be able to lead all the way here and at the price, it has to be an each-way wager.

Bosham 25/1 9th
8:10 CHELMSFORD (Class 3 – 6-furlongs – 12 runners)
Udontdodou is joint top rated and a hold up sort MENELIK 12/1 is the other top rated and a possible pace setter

SUMMARY: A very hard race to analyse with 3 potential dark horses in the race so stakes will be kept low if betting at all but at the price its worth a small each way bet.

Menelik 16/1 4th

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

2:45 Thirsk Racing Tips (20th June) Handicap (Class 6) (3yo+ 0-65)

THIRSK 2.45 (class 6 handicap-10 runners)
Eternalist, Krystallite, Roaring Rory my 4th top rated and Horsforth my 2nd top rated are all front-running types. Flash City is my 3rd top rated and usually chases the leaders. GROUNDWORKER 9/1 is top rated and this one needs a fast pace to aim at and ran a decent race in a fast run affair at Pontefract 2 runs ago and that day dropped back to 7th nearing the finish when the jockey didn't push when its chance of winning had gone, this should be its type of race and is worth an each-way bet but my stakes will be kept low.

Groundworker 9/1 6th 
THIRSK 3.55 (Class 4 handicap-12 runners)

Market Choice my 4th top rated is the only known front runner in the field so could have place claims Round The Island was my selection when it won last time out but this is a lot tougher Zylan is my 2nd top rated and being ridden by a 7lb claimer could have gone top but the trainer is a poor 0-10 here and so is the apprentice for this stable HIGHLAND ACCLAIM 14/1 comes out top here and this type of course should be fine for it, it is drawn in stall 2 which isn't ideal but it will like this switch back to grass after a fruitless winter campaign on the all-weather tracks and could pay dividends with a small each-way wager.

Highland Acclaim 14/1 2nd BEVERLEY 7.00 (class 3 conditions-5 runners)

JUDICIAL is my top rated and also the official top-rated it will probably trey to lead all the way. Thesme is 2nd top rated another front runner and is also 2nd top on official figures Soie D'Leau another front runner and my 3rd top rated but is the bottom of official figures.
SUMMARY: My top 3 are all front runners and I can't see the other 2 getting involved unless they improve dramatically and I think the selection JUDICIAL 5/4 ought to be classy enough to lead all the way here but I doubt it will be a very big price

Judicial 5/4 1st . BRIGHTON 8.10 (Class 5 handicap-6 runners)
GOLD CLUB is top rated and a repeat of its Yarmouth run this year ought to be good enough. Jersey Breeze is my 2nd top rated and a possible pace setter but a versatile type Pushkin Museum is the other possible pace setter but might not stay the trip if it's a fast run race.
SUMMARY: I'm hoping the pace is decent if Jersey Breeze is pushed for the lead and then my selection GOLD CLUB 9/4 can stay the stronger at the finish to win this race.

Gold Club 11/4 6th BRIGHTON 8.40 (CLASS 6 HANDICAP-6 RUNNERS)
Ask The Guru is my joint top rated but the trainer is 1-36 here so looks a negative DEER SONG is the other joint top rated and is usually held up for a late challenge. SUMMARY :- a poor race and no known front runners which might play into the selections hands as it doesn't stay the distance in a fast run race so if this race becomes tactical it must have every chance but I'm not sure if DEER SONG 11/8 is value at the odds but would back if winning and in a multi-bet.

Deer 7/4 6th

Monday, 19 June 2017

3:00 Carlisle Racing Tips (19th June) Molson Coors Handicap (Class 5) (3yo+ 0-70)

A 15 runner affair with just 2 that are known as front running types, Silk Mill Blue is my 4th top rated but may prefer a longer trip, Mercers Row is joint 2nd top rated and another that may prefer further and also not too firm ground, Willbeme is the other 2nd joint top and one of the possible front runners but stall 14 isn't an ideal draw and if there's a fast early pace it may struggle to stay the distance at this stiffer course, top of my list is PORTLAND STREET 11/2 who has finished 2nd in its last 2 starts and has a good chance here to go 1 place better but there is a few 3-year-olds in the race which could still be capable of improving so my stakes will be kept low.

Portland Street 11/2 10th
7:00 Nottingham -
There's 8 runners and 3 of them have led before and half the field are 3-year-olds, my 3rd and 4th top rated are possible front runners and could set the race up for a strong finisher, Midnight Malibu is my 2nd top rated and it usually tracks the leaders and then stays on at the finish, my top rated is *POWERFUL DREAM 10/1 who did its best time over the half a furlong trip at Bath but rarely stays that far and this distance will suit it better and has also done a fast time at the distance on an all-weather course and has a decent chance here but I am worried about all the 3-year-olds in the race so my stakes will be kept to a low each way bet.

7:15 Windsor -
It's a 9 runner race and looks a nice class 4 affair with just 1 known front runner, my 3rd top rated is Cool Bahamian but it's a few pounds below the 2nd top rated Pretty Bubbles who may prefer a longer trip to show its best but could be staying on strongly at the finish but my top rated is BAHAMIAN DOLLAR 9/4 who is also the front-running type in the race and if this one does get an easy lead it could prove very hard to catch for most of these.

Bahamian Dollar 9/4 1st

Lady Aurelia returns to Royal Ascot for 2017

Lady Aurelia, trained by Wesley Ward
As Royal Ascot is fast approaching for 2017,  people are getting excited about prepared for their day at the races.

Every year see's new horses and old favourites hitting the track as they take a shot at claiming a stake in the £6.58 million prize fund.

Last year saw newcomer Lady Aurelia, an American 3-year-old filly who flew the British waters to make a name for herself and boy, did she did just that. Trained by Wesley Ward over in the United States Lady Aurelia is returning to Royal Ascot in 2017 for a second shot at a win.

Last year saw Lady Aurelia run in the Queen Mary's stakes and thunder her way to victory in Super lightening speed. Check the speed ratings for horse racing here.

Ridden by the one and only Frankie Dettori, Lady Aurelia left spectators breathless as the American filly stormed her way down the five-furlong course on soft conditions at lightening speeds, leaving other racers to dust.
This year Lady Aurelia is being ridden again hopefully by Frankie Dettori in The King’s Stand Stake which will take place on Tuesday, but Dettori injured his shoulder in Yarmouth last week.
Lady Aurelia is already a favourite at 7-2 to become the first runner for Wesley Wards stables to win twice at Royal Ascot.

No doubt that Ward is very excited for his filly to hit Ascot and stir up a storm.
Lady Aurelia already feeling right back at home over here in England is very settled and happy, she's walking around her paddock with her ears held high. The American filly has been described as a little tiger by her trainer Ward.

While over here Lady Aurelia is having her legs stretched out ticked over with team member Ryan Moore accompanied by her fellow horse friend bound for nowhere, who contended for the Commonwealth Cup. Moore is standing in for Jockey Detroit while he recovers from his shoulder injury, but Moore is hopeful and very confident for Lady Aurelia no matter who her Jockey is, the filly may be young, but she certainly isn't stupid. Lady Aurelia knows exactly what's doing and what needs to be done.
But Lady Aurelia isn't the only little star to come from Ward. This season the American Wesley Ward is going to be watching with a big grin on his face as 10 of his stunning horses thunder around the track at Ascot.

Ward is said to be very excited not just for Lady Aurelia his youngest but for all of his horses competing at Royal Ascot as this year he feels it is his strongest season yet.

Ward has only been coming to Royal Ascot for the past 8 years, and with him, he's already bought along 7 winners.

This year is going to be very nerve wrecking week for Ward and his whole team as there doing their preparations for the start of Royal Ascot.

All the 10 horses are in high spirits, and most will be ridden by Wards favourite Jockey Frankie Dettori, who is said to be getting over his injury well and will be fit and able to ride at this year's Royal Ascot.
Arawak will be ridden by Jockey John Velasquez. Arawak won at Belmont Park in May being ridden by Velasquez, and the duo are looking good to go running in Coventry with general odds at 8-1
Other runners of Wards will include Fairyland, who was a late arrival at Ascot due to a race she had in Keeneland USA in which she did beautifully and has settled down nicely and is set to run Albany Stakes with odds at 4-1
Elizabeth Darcy will be strutting her stuff in Windsor castle with current odds at 8-1.
Nootka Sounds is feeling nice and relaxed and looking set for her race Windsor Castle and have current odds at 6-1.
winning racing tips Happy like A Fool is said to be on target for a win in her race Queen Mary with her current odds at 5-2.
Con TE Partiro has been working alongside Lady Aurelia and Bound For Nowhere and is feeling the need for speed as she gets ready for her race Sandringham Handicap with current odds at 8-1.

McErin is looking big and strong at she gets set to hit the track in her race Norfolk with her current odds at 4-1.

Princess Peggy is also to run alongside Fairyland in Albany Stakes. The further this princess goes, the stronger she gets, and she likes very much the firm ground, no odds are out on Princess Peggy at present.

Ascot is a perfect time to try to beat the bookies, and the only way to do that is to use a system call matched betting. Go and grab your free matched bets, and give it a go.

2:45 Salisbury Racing Tips (18th June) Handicap (Class 4) (3yo+ 0-85)

horse racing tips
There's only 8 runners but it looks a good class 4 affair, half of them have been known to lead before and that includes my 5th,4th and 2nd top rated horses, Waseem Faris is my 2nd top rated horse and its a few pounds in hand of the 3rd so if they run into their best times it looks a 2 horse race, I'm hoping the early pace sets it up for my top rated horse MR POCKET 5/1 who is a 3-year-old and could still improve on what its shown so far, the trainer is 3-15 with his 3year olds here and the jockey is 3-8 for the stable all positive pointers.

Mr Pocket 5/1 2nd
3:45 Salisbury -
This 10-runner Listed race has a couple of unknowns which could be fatal to any bets, firstly its Glass Office, it hasn't run since 2015 when it was running in Group races so is dropped in class to run here but I'm not sure how much its retained after so long off but if 100% must have a good chance of winning here, then there's the time STELLARTA 20/1 recorded at Goodwood in a very fast run race, if that time wasn't a fluke then it's well clear of the others, if those 2 above are both negatives then DARK SHOT 20/1 could lead all the way and win, I will be watching the betting before deciding any wagers but I'm thinking one of these 3 ought to win this race but I will be going with 2 each way bets both at 20/1.
4:00 Doncaster -
An 11 runner race with 3 known front runners and they are my top 3 ratings so this could be a cracklingly fast run race, in 3rd spot is ISEEMIST 15/2 the trainer has an 188% win rate and the jockey 25% win rate for the stable so a positive booking, RED PIKE 16/1 is 2nd top and this ones jockey has a 17% win rate for the stable so another positive jockey booking, top spot is ASHPAN SAM 16/1 and this horse is a relatively new trainer and there's not enough data to know if it's a positive booking or not as it is a good jockey, I will hopefully be able to back all 3 each way and come out with a profit whichever one wins.

2:05 Musselbugh Racing Tips (17th June) Handicap (Class 3) (4yo+)

A lot of runners in 6 sprints today so a bit short and sweet summary for each race. With 15 runners and 2 could be possible pace setters if they had to and Stanghow is my 4th top rated but 2 more natural front running sorts, Excessable is 3rd top and tracks the leaders, Olivia Fallow is 2nd top rated but my top rated is SHOWDAISY 10/1 who is one of the most likely pace setters and if getting to the front could be hard to catch but too many runners to go in all guns blazing with my stakes.

Showdaisy 11/1 3rd
There's 3 known front runners and Foxy Forever is one of them and my 5th top rated, I've got Taajub and Bonjour Steve as my joint 3rd top rated and in 2nd spot is Rio Ronaldo and my top rated is ORIENTAL RELATION 12/1 who is a possible pacesetter and I expect it to try to lead all the way and the jockey has a 31% win rate for the stable which is a good pointer to them expecting a big run in this race and the price is big enough to go with an each-way wager.

Oriental Relation 12/1 4th
With 17 runners there's only 3 that have been known to lead before, I've got joint 4th top rated horses with Harry Hurricane and Desert Law, in 3rd spot is Line Of Reason and in 2nd spot East Street Revue and all 3 of them can be held up or track the leaders but my top rated is STEPPER POINT 16/1 who is also a good possibility to set the pace and if they get it right it could lead all the way to follow up its win last time out but my stakes will be kept on the low side again and at the price an each way bet.

Stepper Point 25/1 9th
YORK 5.15
There's only 1 known front runner in this field of 20 and that's Slingsby who hasn't been in form for quite a while now, POINT OF WOODS 25/1 is my 3rd top rated but is being ridden by a 5lb claiming apprentice in this race which would move it to top spot but there's no trainer/jockey stats to work with, Meshardal who has won its last 2 runs in class 5 and now moves up a class and has merited the opportunity and just may not be good enough but my other selection is MY DAD SYD 14/1 and the trainer has a 17% win rate and the jockey a 19% win rate for the stable, I'll back both each way to small stakes to show a profit whichever does the business.

My Dad Syd 14/1 3rd
Point Of Woods 50/1 11th
There's 9 runners and 2 probable pace setters my 3rd top rated horse Entertaining Ben and my 2nd top rated PEARL NOIR 5/1 and this one's trainer has a 15% win ratio here and the 7lb claiming apprentice is 2-5 for this stable so it looks like they are expecting a big run here and my top rated horse is the 3-year-old OCELOT 7/1 where the jockey has a 15% win rate for the stable but the stable is 0-26 at this course which is 1 positive and 1 negative stat which is strange so I will go with backing them both to show a profit whichever one wins.

Ocelot 7/1 1st
Pearl Noir 11/1 8th

Americans at Ascot

Royal Ascot 2017
Royal Ascot 2017 is almost upon us and one of the key things that set it apart from the other Flat festivals in the UK calendar is the large international presence that usually lines up at the Berkshire Track. Australian sprinters, in particular, have been regular visitors over the past 10 years, with big names like Miss Andretti, Takeover Target and of course Black Caviar all showing the home team how it’s done in the King’s Stand Stakes and Diamond Jubilee. The Aussie challenge is noticeable by its absence this time around but fortunately for us spectators we have the emergence of the American thoroughbred at Ascot to look forward to.

Spearheaded by a California-based racing trainer by the name of Wesley Ward, a champion jockey during his time in the saddle, we are now seeing a swathe of very speedy US trained horses coming over in an attempt to mop up the key sprint races, and particularly the juvenile contests. It all started in 2009 when Strike the Target was entered in the Windsor Castle Stakes and duly did the job at massive odds of 33/1. Unfortunately for punters, odds as big as those were never dished out again for his clearly very talented riders who seem to have greyhound-like speed from the stalls, according to online pundits who have visualised them racing against some of the world's fastest animals.

The same year Jealous Again won the Queen Mary Stakes by 5 lengths and Cannonball was denied by the shortest of margins in the Golden Jubilee Stakes (now Diamond Jubilee Stakes) and the Royal Ascot winners have kept on coming for Ward since then. He now has 7 Royal Ascot winners at almost a 20% strike rate and this year he claims his team of challengers are ‘100% the strongest he has ever bought over’. This year he’s joined by fellow US trainers Todd Pletcher, trainer of this year’s Kentucky Derby winner, and Bill Mott, who is best known for his handling of the legendary Cigar during the 90s, and you’d be foolish not to consider their chances very strongly indeed when browsing through the form book.

Queen Anne Stakes - Tuesday 20th June

American Patriot – Todd Pletcher
American Patriot – Todd Pletcher

Todd Pletcher makes his first trip to Ascot and this colt has won five of his eleven starts, including a first Group 1 victory on latest start. Will enjoy the 1m trip and the fact the ground will likely be very fast will also help. Still improving but not quite the profile of a superstar and on the face of it would appear to have a fair bit to find with favourite Ribchester. Currently available to back at odds around the 20/1 mark.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes - Saturday 24th June

Long On Value – Bill Mott

First trip to Ascot for Bill Mott and he brings with him his globetrotting sprinter Long On Value who was narrowly denied a huge pot in Dubai earlier this year when unlucky in running and on the ground that was probably too soft. Returning to these conditions will suit and has seemed rejuvenated by dropping back to 6f as a six-year-old. Currently available to back at odds around the 33/1 mark.

King's Stand Stakes - Tuesday 20th

Lady Aurelia – Wesley Ward

The headline act of Wesley Ward’s team and won last year’s Queen Mary Stakes from the front in a breath-taking show of speed. Remained in Europe afterwards, winning a French Group 1 before only finishing 3rd in the Group1 Cheveley Park Stakes, both times over 6f. Dropping back to 5f for the King’s Stand Stakes should suit and this track probably more to her liking than Newmarket was, too. No easy task against our 5f sprinters but is favourite for a good reason. Currently available to back at around the 7/2 mark.

Coventry Stakes - Tuesday 20th

Arawak - Wesley Ward

Just one start back in the States and that was a maiden victory by 7 lengths at Belmont Park. That doesn’t tell us much in terms of whether he’s good enough for this step up in class but his trainer regards him highly enough to put him on the plane over which says a fair amount. Owned by familiar names of Tabor, Magnier and Smith and will be running in the Coventry Stakes. Currently available to back at around the 6/1 mark.

Windsor Castle Stakes- Tuesday 20th

Nootka Sound - Wesley Ward

Another with just one run and one win under her belt, a convincing 5 length win at Keeneland to set her up for a crack at the Windsor Castle Stakes, a race her trainer has scooped twice since 2009. Likely to be very competitive and available to back at odds of around 6/1.

Commonwealth Cup Cup - Friday 23rd

Bound for Nowhere - Wesley Ward

3-year-old colt with two wins from two starts so far and taking on some stern opposition in the Commonwealth Cup over 6f. Looks an exciting prospect, to say the least but beating Caravaggio and Harry Angel won’t be easy. Could be the value in the race at around the 12/1 mark.
