WEALTH TAX landed me a nice return on Thursday with the double-stake tip winning at 13-8.
My other pick finished second so it was a 1.25pt profit for the day and I have another joint nap/NB advised on Friday and it's a horse close to my heart.
Well done all Thursday winners and keep the tips and chat coming.
Johnb's Friday Tips
- Wolverhampton 2:20 – Hungarian Rhapsody 9-4 NAP/NB (double stake)
The main bet for Friday can only be one horse and it’s a horse I have been waiting to back, waiting for the right moment and that moment is now. Hungarian Rhapsody is a Racing Club bet and the winnings are being used to fund another horse for the club.
Hungarian Rhapsody is the standout on form and was extremely unlucky last time. I thought the 7f might have come too early for this horse last time but on looking at the race I think I was wrong. With a horse staying on late over the extended 7f you would think a drop to 6f wouldn’t suit but the circumstances were that Hungarian Rhapsody was outpaced at a crucial stage last time. It wasn’t because the horse lacked the ability to quicken straight away but because he found himself in a pocket with nowhere to go, as he eased off the rest quickened but he did well to run on late on for fourth.
Exceed and Excel progeny go well on the Tapeta surface and although the trainer form isn’t great at the moment Hungarian Rhapsody should win this, at time of writing this Bogsnog is being well backed.
- Haydock 7:15 – Veejay 2-1
This horse was also unlucky last time and could have won with a bit of luck. Veejay went into the Goodwood race unbeaten but was badly hampered and lost all chance. His form before that reads well, he won at this course on his second outing when he beat Al Barg, a horse I tipped last month and franked the form and Veejay should get back on course with another win.
- Double 8.75-1
