Eric's Weekly Round Up: Mazzini 7/1

Tuesday, 18 March 2014


A nine runner race. Four horses: Profile Star, Roys Legacy, Alpha Delta Whiskey & Desert Strike have been known to lead. The two top rated on my figures are in those four likely leaders - both drawn well. The top rated is DESERT STRIKE. Drawn in stall one, he will have every chance to get to the front. Roy's Legacy comes out second best. He can lead or track the leaders, which he might have to do. My third top rated is Ask The Guru who may do best of those running off the pace -place claims at best.

6:10 Kempton - There are two known front runners in this twelve runner race: Catalyze who won last time out four days ago, while College Doll, who hasn't been in form lately, might find this trip too far. My second top rated is Littlecote Lady, who ran well when second two runs ago, but didn't do as well last time out at over seven furlongs. My third top rated is Captain Scooby. He, like my second top rated, can either track the leaders or be held up, so obviously both have chances to make the frame at least. The top rated is MAMBO SPIRIT is another who likes to be hold up or track leaders. The stable is in decent form and hopefully should finish the strongest.

6:40 Kempton - This twelve runner contest is quite tricky to assess. Three horses have been known to lead: Bubbly Bailey, Camache Queen & Time Medician. Camache Queen comes out second on my ratings and might even be the winner of the race unless the top rated - We Have A Dream - comes back to form. He hasn't been very inspiring of late but can spring back to form without showing any signs. 

SUMMARY: 3:30 Lingfield -  Desert Strike is worth a bet at 4/1. This horse is well berthed in stall one, especially for a front runner. His only wins come when he leads, so hopefully an all-the-way winner. 6:10 Kempton - Mambo Spirit looks good at 4/1. The stable is in form and the jockey has rode the horse before when it went close. 6:40 Kempton - I will split my bet between two horses.  Camache Queen at 14/1 (looks a big price and it could possibly lead, so looks a small each way bet). We Have A Dream comes out top of my figures but not by much. It is a horse that can spring back to form at any time so may also be a small each-way bet at 7/1...(E.R.I.C.)
