Sunday, 25 September 2016


A 15 runner apprentice jockeys race with 6 of them being known to lead before, Englishwoman is joint 4th top and a possible leader and stall 13 is good another 3year old, Peter Park is the other joint 4th top rated, Tonis A Star is 3rd top and usually races prominently and WHITECREST 20/1 is 2nd top rated but only 1 pound off top spot and is well drawn in stall 14 and could be the one to prosper if they go too fast in front and tire nearing the finish so it will be an each way bet on this one at the price but top spot is ARCHIE STEVENS 8/1 and this is another possible pace-setter, although it's just as happy tracking the leaders, and it's the jockeys Holly Doyle's 1st ride for this stable and most of her rides have been for the Hannon yard so she will be well schooled for this race because stall 1 isn't ideal but I'm hoping by backing both we have found the winner but being an apprentice race I will keep my stakes on the low side.

This time 14 runners but only 3 known front-runners, I've got 6 horses marked down as potential lays if their any value, the best of those front runners looks to be Go Amber Go who is my 3rd top rated and has drawn stall 13 which is ideal for it to try and lead all the way but I've got two 3-year-olds that have better times, before that I've got Catalinas Diamond down as my 5th top rated and this ought to be staying on strongly at the finish of the race but maybe too late to win but could make the frame, 4th top is Angelito who doesn't like the going to be on the firm side of things but does handle genuine good ground quite well, those two 3-year-olds are Secretfact who is my 2nd top from a time it did at Chepstow when beating DAVID'S BEAUTY 8/1 but there's a 13lb turn around at the weights today which should be plenty to reverse the placings, this time, out but neither are well drawn in stalls 1 and 4 so stakes will have to be kept to a lower level.
