Alan Thomson has a brace of bets on a low-key Sunday

ANCIENT ASTRONAUT (3.28) was the subject of a major gamble which came unstuck two days ago but a recovery mission has been launched at Lingfield.

The gelding had little chance of winning at Wolverhampton after taking a fierce hold, and his jockey was forced very wide on the home bend. Ancient Astronaut is better judged on his narrow defeat previously and he has had better luck with the draw in stall two.

VOLCANO (3.42) returns to the scene of his latest victory at Warwick and should go well in the very demanding 3m 5f handicap chase. The grey wasn't disgraced behind Subcontinent when moved up slightly in grade at Ludlow and William Hill go four places at 10-1.

Cheltenham Countdown

The Cheltenham Festival kicks-off on Tuesday and The Voice of Value has penned a brilliant scene-setter, with a Banker Bet for each day, to get us in the mood.

He's also spent some time with racing expert Jim Delahunt to record a special Cheltenham Festival Preview Podcast. It's well worth a listen if you're looking for a few pointers for the Festival.

      Galvin must be nailed on for the National Hunt Chase after that announcement DC.

    • double carpet 1 year ago

      Hopefully mate.
      Been on him for some time and was worried about RP but I think they’ve made the right decision as next year Ricci will have Monkfish for the Gold Cup

  5. Gateacre Pete 1 year ago

    Duke of Earl 2.07 Warwick. 28/1 to finish in the first 3. And only 12/1 to finish in the first 4! Disgraceful 🙄

    • Parzov 1 year ago

      Nice Pete How manny places you doing ?

    • Gateacre Pete 1 year ago

      Hopefully it’ll finish in the first 3. Fav is 1/3 not much value in first 4

    • Parzov 1 year ago

      Ok thank you Pete. 👍

  6. elvis parsley 1 year ago

    Geordie des champs 4-15 Warwick 33-1 ew.
    25-1 top 4 finish
    16-1 top 6 finish
    Bet365 Ew extra

    • Parzov 1 year ago

      Elvis are you doing 6 places ?

    • elvis parsley 1 year ago

      I wouldn’t advise following this bud, loose change only bet.
      On old form this would have a serious chance but ran shite after a long break recently so will need to show something like his old form before chucking money at it
      I like the Curtis/Bowen combo and she maybe is giving him time to see if his old form returns.

      I’ve split my meagre stake between 25-1 and 16-1 more in hope than expectation.

    • Parzov 1 year ago

      Ok elvis thank you for the info. 👍

    • Parzov 1 year ago

      Great elvis geordie got place. Thank you great work. 👍

  9. recoba 1 year ago

    Nothing taking my fancy really,left it out yesterday in the UK(not by choice) but well done the winners 👍
    A right decent night in the US with Swiss Skydiver romping home at a daft 11/10 I managed to get.
    Couldn’t get on to tip anything as well! 🤷🏾

    Just going to with one from my tracker that romped home 14l over an odds on favourite last time that finished 3rd and a more experienced horse squeaked 2nd.

    Zanavi…1.45. EVS(***)
    Treble with favourites in the 2.45 and the 2.07 that pays just over 3/1. Bet365 🐎

    Then it’s on to the football! ⚽️

      Was my original thought but it’s no bet to go crazy with 3 odds one,no harm wae (***) Zhanavi but very disappointing in the end!

    • recoba 1 year ago

      Pat my shants the with Scarlet and Dove there 4 out 😮but ultimately runs out easy winner as it should. Nice wee treble with the drift out to 8/11 there??

    • recoba 1 year ago

      1 down 1 up but main bet in USA so rest is gravy and be a bonus. Hometown looked a good horse there but Bob Baffert trained so 6/4 was generous I thought (****) it
