Juniper was horrendous on seasonal reappearance, she didn't jump great and went out like a light. Western Zephyr jumped well on chase debut and placed if you backed him on Bet365. Wasdell Dundalk came into the straight on the bridle, but so was the winner and the winner had a bit more staying power than him, but he still managed to place.

With the storm blitzing across the UK over the last couple of days and today there is likely going to be a few meeting called off due to waterlogged tracks. Haydock has already fallen, which isn't a surprise as it's a swamp at that track for 99% of the year.

Fakenham 3:43 – Theonlywayiswessex 3/1 (1pt Bet365)

What a very poor race this is, none of them are guaranteed to enjoy the soft ground but if taking to fences Theonlywayiswessex could be much better than this field.

This is Alan King's sole runner at the track and it's a venue he doesn't tend to send too many horses to, compared to the other southern-based tracks. His record at Fakenham is 10 wins from 35 runners in the last five years, which is a 29% SR and a +9.52 profit to £1 level stakes. This horse was a maiden on his novice season over hurdles, but he finished 2nd on his most recent start in a handicap off today's mark, being touched off by a neck, so clearly he is on a decent enough rating to strike and get a win.

The Sire has produced soft ground horses over fences like Gaelic Warrior and Quilixios to name a couple, so there is optimism that the forecast ground will be fine for Theonlywayiswessex. He has been jumping his hurdles with plenty of accuracy and air so there's definitely improvement to come over the larger obstacles based on that. If he does enjoy the ground it should play into his hands as he seems a strong stayer at 2m, and on bottomless ground it will stretch the stamina of the field.

Fakenham 4:53 – Tweed Skirt 7/2 (1pt Bet365)

This is a decent handicap chase with some unexposed horses making the lineup. Tweed Skirt looks very interesting on her first attempt over 3m and I think this extra distance will suit her.

She is a very good horse on her day, she just didn't quite bridge the gap to Class 1 level against some nice horses last year but prior to that she was making nice headway through the handicap system with two wins in Class 3 company, with the win over Kissesforkatie reading as very good form. She wasn't disgraced when attempting the Class 1 races but she wasn't good enough on the day, she ran a nice race on her last run at Cheltenham in April but I'm not sure the track suited her, but she did finish very strongly up the hill at Cheltenham that day and maybe it was a sign that she needs further.

The soft ground won't be an issue for her, she has won a bumper on soft and has been a winner on good to soft as well. Her jumping is normally very good and accurate and with the recent wind op she has had, I'm expecting a big performance on her 3m debut.

    🇺🇸 Delta Downs -R6…Gerard. 9/1 Ew *** Bet365
    8/1 Each way extra 3 places
    4 places they go 13/2?? 🤔

    Tiz pretty wide open and Oor Gerard needs to bounce back but should bolt out and if he’s ran down so be it the Jockey best keep on keeping on!

  2. hibee1 6 months ago

    Run zaakbrun 11/4 hayleys only ride big trek for stable trainer doesn’t send them here often good record at track fav worth taking on . Really confident bet


    • dazzman1979 6 months ago

      Hayley turner is enough to put me off lumping on that but I’ll chuck it into an accumulator for sure 👍👌🤞🏦

    • hibee1 6 months ago

      Doubts about the Beckett filly acting on the ground were why I am on this bet. Really well bred but they apparently want to try her on it. 50/50 whether she acts on it. The one I’m on has good form lines and should be fine on this ground. Didn’t have time this morning to really go into anything. The money has come as well 11/4 down to 15/8 in places. Whether it’s a good bet at current odds I’m not so sure but if you got on this morning before 8 you have a decent bet. Good luck everyone today. Not be on till next week

    • dazzman1979 6 months ago

      Very good winner in the end . Seeing pj taking the ride made me lump in the end 😂

    Monviel 10/3 1.05 NA

    Most peoples attention will be on Ascot but this horse is in my tracker and I also have him down as a one to follow for the season as he turns to the bigger obstacles.
    He’s bred to be a better chaser than hurdler and was beaten by the current fav when they met over hurdles by 7L. That day Monviel received just 3lbs. Tomorrow he gets a stone.
    I’m not saying he’ll win tomorrow but he will definitely win races this season off that mark.
    I also have down needs to be ridden prominently and with just 3 runners that won’t be an issue but if tackling bigger field h’caps later it’s worth noting.

    I see he’s already come in 1/2 point already. That helps my confidence


  22. spurs55 6 months ago

    Riccoboni @ 6/1SP

    Win – 17.30 Newcastle

  23. ItsTrixie 6 months ago

    My picks of the day haven’t even run yet, but I’m already fed up with the wind, fed up with the rain, fed up with horses running sideways, so I’m going in early with my picks for tomorrow…


    1430 Leopardstown – Basilah Bear
    (how on earth this isn’t favourite… am I missing something here?)

    1425 Ascot – Jackie Oh
    (surely a big day for the O’Brien / Moore partnership… is a hatrick on the cards?)

    1730 Catterick – Ask Peter
    (tried asking Peter, but neigh response… unexposed type here, let’s see if the Johnston yard has some magic up their sleeve)
