Eric's Weekly Round Up: Outrage 5/1 & Spirit Of Wedza 6/1

Thursday, 28 May 2015


Actually its quite poor for a class four race and from the eleven runners there's three of them that have been known to lead before and that includes both my first and second top rated, the third possible leader is Honeymoon Express but I doubt it will be fast enough to lead here, so I doubt many will get involved in the race. My third top rated is Jamesbo's Girl who can either track the leaders or be held up, second top is Refuse Colette and top is DIAMOND LADY 14/1 who has got an apprentice riding to take off another five pounds to help their cause and if it does get to the front and they don't burn each other out it could lead all the way, the stables statistics aren't great so stakes should be kept on the low side but it could maybe worth a small each way bet at the odds.

5:25 Newcastle - Nine runners in a lowly class six race and only Roy's Legacy has been known to lead before and its my joint second top rated so could try to steal the race from the front and that's quite possible with the make-up of this race, Ypres starts off as joint second top rated but with the three pound claiming apprentice on board moves it into top spot but the three year old Classic Flyer comes from the David O'Meara stable, which is in good form, but this is its first run of the season. So the race is a bit up in the air but I'm thinking the race surely must be between these three: ROY'S LEGACY 5/1; YPRES 10/1 & CLASSIC FLYER 7/2. I'd back all three for a profit -  whichever wins. 

8:10 Catterick - Just the flat eight runners so ideal if the selection is a big enough price to do each way, half the field of eight have been known to lead before and again this includes my top two. Pearl Noir could lead but its times have been poor so maybe wont be fast enough here to lead, the three year old Crosse Fire has led before and in the right race could be a hidden danger but maybe not in this race, third top rated is Boxing Shadows who normally tracks the leaders so could have place claims, second top rated is the possible front runner Rozene but top spot goes to the other likely leader TYFOS 12/1 but the stable statistics for this horse are quite poor so only a small each way bet but now the top weight against inferior horses it could spring back to life.

Diamond Lady 14/1 6th
Classic Flyer 7/2 1st
Roy's Legacy 6/1 3rd
Ypres 10/1 4th
Tyfos 14/1 4th
