    New to posting on the forum but been following the tips for a while now, good to see so many decent winners. Nothing massively inspiring around today for me but I think all 3 have good chances albeit not at the most exciting prices.

    NAP – Regal Gait 2.10 Chelmsford 6/4
    NB – Space War 2.40 Chelmsford 7/2
    Estrella Eria 4.10 Chelsmford 5/2

    Good Luck!

      @johnb what do you think of Forest Rangers chances in the 3.55? 14/1 seems big imo.
      Took your pick and Dubai One..4.10 tomorrow. Good Friday racing card looks a cracker. 😉

    Morning all,

    It was a tough day yesterday for myself, highlighted by Wall of Fires nose second. Well done to all those who had a winner! Three selections for me today plus an early bet for tomorrow.

    15.40 Chelmsford – Fire Fighting 15/2 EW & Rockspirit 5/1 EW

    At the prices I am more than happy to take on Poet’s Word, he may well win but I can’t be taking 5/6 on a horse who looks tricky last year and was turned over at some short prices. I very rarely bet at Chelmsford but this race really is top quality. I am happy to keep the faith with Fire Fighting, who disappointed last time when he didn’t get an idea run at Kempton, back down in a handicap and with C&D form in the book this reliable sort looks over priced. Another C&D winner is Rockspirit, who looked very progressive last season. That C&D came after a break so he should go well fresh today. I am happy to play both horses 0.75 points each way, plus a 0.10 reverse forecast – just incase.

    17.20 Towcester – Sliding Doors 5/2

    I put this horse up last time when he ran at Fontwell after he finished runner up by a short head on debut at Musselburgh. He ran well enough that day finishing third and the winner has been tried highly since. He looks worthy of another try today in this weak looking contest. The favorite (Searching for Gold) rather disappointed on debut after being well backed, while he will come on for that run he has to give weight to the selection today. 5/2 looks very generous on Sliding Doors (1.5 points win).


    15.40 Lingfield AW Mile Final – Sovereign Debt 7/1 EW

    The ever consistent Sovereign Debt looks primed to go close again on finals day tomorrow. He has finished runner up in this race the last two times but he clearly retains bags of talent. Already this year he has won a valuable local Group 2 race in Doha and last time out he finished a close third at Kempton in a Listed race (would have won with a clear run). He has moved to Ruth Carr from Dandy Nichols and she has her string in good for at present. 7/1 looks very generous and I will be playing 1.5 points each way.

    Many thanks and GL to all

    Afternoon all. Hope you are all well. Firstly, my little penny’s worth. I think it’s up to each individual contributor as to whether they wish to keep track of their points or not. I see no harm in it at all. If anything, it’s rather beneficial to us all. Providing it doesn’t turn into a competition. To me, the only people who see it as a competition are those complaining about it!!! Otherwise they wouldn’t see it as an issue.

    Anyways, onto today. Considering it’s just a standard mediocre Thursday card, there are quite a few horses I like the look of. Chelmsford cards always take my interest due to being a local track, and the same runners often returning. Here are my Chelmsford selections
    2.10 Regal Gait 6/4
    2.40 Space War 4/1
    3.10 Fiendish 5/2
    3.40 Rockspirit 11/2 e/w
    4.10 Estrella Eria 10/3 and My Mo 13/2 e/w
    4.40 Mighty Zip 13/2 e/w
    5.10 Rays The Money 11/1 e/w

    From the other 2 cards, the ones I like most are
    2.30 Mr Snoozy 4/1
    3.30 Lightening Rod 11/4
    4.00 Master Jake 11/2
    5.20 Sliding Doors 10/3

    Good luck all today.
    P.S a quieter thread is much easier to keep up with all the tips

    I’ve already backed rhododendron for the guinaes but have had my eye caught by hydrangea @johnb has she caught your attention?

      You always have to take note of O’Brien horses as they have the money and breeding capabilities to have the best horses, I still feel Promise To Be True has a lot of improvement in her, I keep saying every year on here that the O’Brien horses don’t kick in till may, especially the better horses and connections have always thought a lot of her,
      In my ten 3yo’s to follow I mentioned Talaayeb has a good chance in the 1000 Guineas at 20/1, now 16/1 I still think highly of her

    Last year I said that Churchill had given me the same feeling as Golden Horn did when I watched him run, he was advised after he finished what most people thought was a disappointing third on debut but there were signs of ability, signs of class and signs of greatness at such an early stage,
    The best horses have a swagger about the way they move, they know exactly how good they are Churchill has that about him, I had no doubts last year that he could do the Guineas and Derby double but as always we have to see how they come through the winter,
    I had read stories about how well Churchill was looking but after seeing the horse myself he looks magnificent, he has filled his frame well and although going straight to the 2000 Guineas I can’t see anything getting near him and he looks a horse that could realistically be Aidan O’Briens best ever

    Can someone explain something to me please?
    This morning I placed a combination tricast on the 5.00 race. I had Bankhall (1st), Pikarnia (2nd) and non runner miss barbossa. I only placed 15p unit stake, 90p total stake. I got paid out £16.32. Can some explain how that worked please? I actually have no idea in this instance

      Well done mate. Good day for you.
      not bad day for myself. If I played all mine as 1pt win singles and 0.5pt each ways, then it would have been 12pts staked, 19pts returned. I didn’t back all in singles though. Some multiples and some singles. Multiples weren’t very good, loss on both. But thankfully had Estrella Eria, Regal Gait, Bankhall and that combination tricast all pay. So profit for the day.
      well done all winners. Gutted miss barbossa didn’t run though, as that was the one I fancied most of the 3 from combination tricast, and the 2 that did run finished well ahead of the rest of the field
