2:35 Ripon Winning race Tips (14th April) PPR FOUNDATION HANDICAP (CLASS 4) (4yo+ 0-85)

(FREEBIE) A big field of seventeen runners and surprisingly only three have been known to lead before but the best of the front runners only comes out sixth on my figures so it looks like they will set the race up for one of the finishers, Royal Brave fifth top and Ambitious Icarus fourth top are really better over a shorter distance so the race might not be run to suit them, Mississippi comes out third top and can be held up or track the leaders and did have a run recently on the all weather to sharpen it up and has place claims here, second top is Clubland who started off level with the top weight but its being ridden by a three pound claiming apprentice which moves it into second spot on its own but my top rated is FAST SHOT 12/1 who is a hold up type of horse and its best time was recorded on a similar course so Ripon should suit it but with so many runners it will need some degree of luck to get a completely clear run but this will be its first run of the year and it hasn't won before after a break but I always have a small bet on my top rated and this time it will be an each way bet and will do so here as long as the going is good or faster and I know I say it every time but please make sure of the going before having a bet as all my workings are done with no going allowances.
