Racing Tips: El Vip a confident pick


ULYSSES took victory at York yesterday after my nap Churchill and Barney Roy both did the donkey work by battling each other from a long way out.

They cut each other’s throats in the process but well done to Jim Crowley and Ulysses who sat back and picked up the scraps. Ulysses was another horse I flagged up earlier in the season who I thought would have a good year and Cliffs Of Moher proves I was right in saying he was a poor Derby first string for O’Brien.

My August profit now stands at 20.21pts and my Thursday tips have been added.

Well done all Wednesday winners and let’s hear all your latest tips and chat.

    Gutted with Churchill,let me and surely a few others down for some good profit but football results were kind and Hope Is High(5.10) winning helped too so still a good days betting.
    Bit of time to study in work but it’s a bit of a minefield at York imo so Small stake L15 is my first thoughts on a day for mostly watching, don’t skud the betting bank n all that.

    Dear Bruyne…1.55. 5/1
    Happy Like A Fool…2.25. 5/1
    Blair House…3.00. 14/1
    Whispered Kiss…4.50. 8/1

    Tempted by an Enable and Mori double paying 1.4/1 Bet365.
    Think I’ll sleep on it.

    Selections and write up from the 21st April
    Both horses got beat but look at them now
    Just a pity Enable wasn’t tried with that day but that’s racing

    Newbury 3:05
    Enable 13/2 paddy power

Mori 7-2 NAP-NB paddy power (double stake)

    Double 32.75-1 paddy power

    Mori NAP/NB
I haven’t been too impressed with the vast majority of Frankel’s progeny so far and I thought there was too much hype surrounding them, with Mori though I like the Dam Midday who was a multiple group one winner and a good horse to me, this is Midday’s second foal with her first being Midterm who was a winner in a group 3 and Frankel’s offspring on a whole have been pretty decent on debut and she should be winning this before going on to better

My opinion is that Lanfranco Dettori has made the wrong decision here if he has been given the choice, both the John Gosden horses are good with a lot of potential but I think Enable looked better on debut and has the more scope for improvement, Shutter Speed on debut was outpaced at a crucial time but did battle back to win whereas Enable showed a good turn of foot to put the race to bed, looking at the breeding of both Gosden horses Enable stands out, extremely well bred this daughter of Nathanial who will love the step up in distance

      John…remember this race well as William Buick should have got done for schooling in public. I thought that it was worth a bet at the Chester May meeting and it comfortably beat an O’Brien favourite and has been superb since. What’s your opinion of Ryan Moore at York…has he just been on the wrong horses or is he riding poorly?

      • Profile photo of Johnb
        Johnb 12 months ago

        Nothing really to do with his riding, some of his horses should have done better but it’s just a case of not meant to be, he could easily turn it round tomorrow
