    Shocking days racing on Tuesday
    Best bet of the day by far is SPECIAL SEASON in the 2:40 Lingfield but as you know I don’t back odds on even if 4/5 hills & coral should be stealing money

    He really should be 1/4

    Terrible racing today and tomorrow the amount of comments today tells you how bad it was Kempton has to be the worst all weather track for handicaps they finish in a heap all the time and you would get a different result every time.
    Colder weather from tomorrow night onwards as you say jimron time of the year for the jumpers bumpers to start lol.

      Surely if they finish in a heap, this indicates that the handicapper has done his job.

      • Profile photo of

        Hiya elvis exactly and that makes it so hard to get the winner. Its more the fact IMO at Kempton if you run the same handicap of the same marks youl get a different winner most of the time you get so many hold up horses waiting on that cut away it turns into mad sprints.
        1 race that kind off went to form yesterday was Exalted but most of that was down to it being the only front runner which meant it got a soft lead.
        I take my hat of to anybody finding winners round that track its just not for me.

      Superb NAP alanm a’m cursing myself big style after Johnb’s statement last night using words like buying money and 4/5 shot should be a 1/4 shot my eyes lit up so i went through the race with a fine tooth pic came to the conclusion that Special season didnt run near 100 last time and Hombre Rojo was an improver due to go up around 10 pounds so there wasnt that much between them in the ratings making 6/1 a bet certainly no 1/4 shot in the race THEN Haggis came on ATR on the line program talking about it going to Maydan so i left it but also couldnt back Haggis odds on hes like Mark Johnston seems to get alot beat.
      So massive well done for sticking to your guns also some other great tips on here today hammer the bookies.

    alanm would be good for people to know why you have Hombre Rojo as your Nap today,

    • Profile photo of rale
      rale 1 year ago

      That’s bit cheeky to ask, considering that you put Nap/NB without a word of reasoning.

      • Profile photo of Johnb
        Johnb 1 year ago

        And you should know I can put reasoning up,
        It’s not cheeky it’s asking about a horse that is 23lb out on official ratings and about 16lb out on the ratings I do which allows for a little improvement

        It’s not having a go at alanm it’s stating an obvious question that others should have asked and I can’t believe Rale you don’t want to know why a horse rated 77 can beat a horse rated 100 off level weights, a horse off 100 that has been running in far better races, a horse off 100 that in most races has been running to a level of between 95-103 for most of his races, a horse rated 100 that wasn’t far behind Iban Malik,

        There are lots of pointers in this race through other horses and not one of them is in favour of Hombre Rojo although I do think the horse is better than his rating of 77 as I think more of 87 but that’s taking into account the improvement I think the horse has

        • Profile photo of alanm
          alanm 1 year ago

          Better races on the flat not the AW total prize money is £5000 and has also been beaten twice Fav with Pat Cosgrave on board once odds on @ 8/13

          • Profile photo of Johnb
            Johnb 1 year ago

            I am getting confused here, maybe I am missing something but where in the form does it say Rojo has been running in better races on the all-weather?

        • Profile photo of rale
          rale 1 year ago

          JohnB it was just a small dig at you for not putting reasoning up, even that I know that you can. For people who doesn’t follow you blindly it would be very helpful.
          I am interested why AlanM went against both, Sam Turner and Track Bias Diary at GG’s in the first at Lingfield, considering that he uses them for references for his picks. TBD reasoning about first time visors for R Cowell’s 5f runners was spot on and swayed me to back More Spices. His last 5 runners with first time visor have won 5f races. It shows why that kind of info is so useful. If I didn’t read that I would never back that horse.
          All the best.

    Agree with you boz. Good to see Morris back up as well. He tends to get good runs out of this horse. I’m hoping more spice is supported and pushes the price out a little as 7/4 isn’t that great in a race that’s far from clear cut.

  18. Profile photo of alanm

    Hombre Rojo very easy. Jockey owner 60% strike rate horse only up one class winning 6L FAV up 2 classes winning 2 1/4 L 2/2CD wins also Fav change of jockey and only a 4 horse race. Hopefully that’s plenty and it never went to 1/4

      alanm it wasn’t having a go it was curiosity and don’t take this the wrong way but Hombre Rojo in his last race beat the top rated horse Manhattan Skyline by 7 1/4 lengths,
      Manhattan was giving Rojo 8lb

      Now Special Season last run, yes it was only a class 5 but you have a line through Manhattan Skyline there
      Manhattan was beaten 8 1/2 lengths so not a lot in distance there between Special Season & Rojo but Special Season was giving Manhattan 8lb

      I see your point about Rojo up one class & Special Season up two classes but has has been 2nd not beaten far in two class 2 races and 4th in the group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket

      • Profile photo of alanm
        alanm 1 year ago

        Johnb you can read a lot more into a race than I could ever hope to do but what I can read makes me want to back this horse strongly as 4 horse races are also a race I like to take an Fav’s.
        And yes your logic will see your horse win by a mile but I still think it’s a lay and mine has the best chance against it so good luck and let the race begin and if your right I will say well done.

        • Profile photo of Johnb
          Johnb 1 year ago

          I haven’t had a bet in the race as I don’t like backing odds on, but I know a lot of people follow you so I hope I am wrong and Hombre Rojo wins for you and others

  20. Profile photo of on the bob
    on the bob 1 year ago

    I’ve taken a look at the 2.40 and I might read this wrong but at the weights the think special reason should win this. It won off 9.7 and now carries 9.2 where as hombro won off 8.13.

    Hombro however did win his race approx 2secs quicker then special reason. but I still think special reason has this but would you want to take 8/11, not on its own but as part of a 12 horse/footy Acca I will. 😃🐴⚽️

    Ps, Alan I’m not saying this to get at you its just my uninformed opinion. It’s an interesting race regardless.

    The more you look at lingfield the more you think there are some good bets so here is my lingfield Acca:

    R2 lightsome
    R3 muaithar
    R4 special reason

    One other horse that stands out today is BATTLE OF SHILOH 2.30 Ludlow @11/4 bog. I don’t agree with Racing Post comments re its form in point to points if you delve deeper into this it finished ahead of bigbadjohn on its first outing who consequently won it’s next two races second one under rules beating a Mullins horse Au Quart du Tour that finished 6th in that race the Mullins horse then ran in a class 1 hurdle race and looked all out the winner until falling at the last.

    I’ve been studying this race all morning so I hope I at least get a run for my money :) Gd luck today.

    Summer Chorus (NAP/NB)

    Here we have a 0-75 handicap where quite simply there are two horses running that are far better than this level,

    First we have Discreet Hero and he has been a big mover in the market, but it’s what we call a false gamble,
    Simple fact is that Hugh Taylor has tipped him and we all know what happens to odds when he tips a horse.
    My view is Discreet Hero is better at five furlongs rather than today’s six furlongs, but he will be good enough to beat the majority of these
    Simon Crisford is still getting to know him after two runs to see how to run him
    I see the horse as better being held up off a fast pace because he does have a good turn of foot and can pick his rivals off as they tire, then in slower run races he doesn’t look the type to make the running but he does need to be raced more prominently.
    He has 112 days off to contend with here and I think that could be a major factor which helps Summer Chorus

    Summers Chorus is fresher have been off the track 60 days and I thought his debut run was quite decent having run very green and only beaten 3/4 length, he led that race and pulled the arms off David Probert, looked well beat with two furlongs to go but I liked the way he battled to get in the end a comfortable 2nd place

    Last time out here over five furlongs he was very keen going down to the start but settled ok but his head was still pulling a little.
    I actually think it’s a good thing today that Oisin Murphy has to ride Lightsome because although he is a good tactician he isn’t as strong as Jim Crowley,
    Crowley be able to settle him a bit better going down to the start as you need to let the horse know that you are in charge.
    he has the hood on with will help during the race and Crowley should have him more prominent than Discreet Hero,
    Summer Chorus does take a bit longer to get going so don’t get worried if he looks like he isn’t finding much, because he takes longer to get going, this six furlongs will suit him better

    Because Summer Chorus is fresher and this race is over six furlongs, this should be an advantage over Discreet Hero although I genuinely think Summer Chorus will be the better horse of the two long term

    I haven’t discussed any others because as I said these two are far better than this level and I would be surprised if they aren’t 1st and 2nd

    Special Season: Bruce Raymond, racing manager to the owner: “Special Season won well there last time and should take all the beating. If he wins well the plan is to take him out to Meydan for the UAE 2,000 Guineas. I would expect the main danger to be Hombre Rojo who I was quite impressed with last weekend.”
