NATE THE GREAT (3.35) can justify his lofty market position by landing the feature Betway Queen’s Cup at Musselburgh.

This 1m 6f trip is probably a bare minimum for Andrew Balding stayer but he has been in fine form at Wolverhampton this winter, running an excellent third to Mildenberger and Rainbow Dreamer before seeing off Who Dares Wins on a return visit to the Midlands track in February. William Carver takes off 5lb and he should be able to take up a stalking position from stall five. The stable remains in top form.

Mark Johnston saddles five of the 14 runners, with Themaxwecan looking on an attractive mark. Like Nate The Great, he is best on a sound surface, so this dry spell will have pleased connections. Glencadam Glory would rate a serious threat is able to produce his Ebor Handicap form, when finding only Fujaira Prince too good at York. Alright Sunshine was back in ninth but has won on all four starts at Musselburgh for Keith Dalgleish.

Northern powerhouses Johnston and Richard Fahey saddle four of the seven runners in the Betway Royal Mile Handicap, but the prize may go to southern raider COLONEL FAULKNER (2.25). Archie Watson’s gelding, a winner on his final start at Deauville in December, had earlier made a highly encouraging debut at Doncaster when a close runner-up to El Drama. Roger Varian’s winner is now rated 98, so Colonel Faulkner seems well treated running off 83 here.

Seventeen runners are declared for the Betway Challenger Stayers Handicap Hurdle Final at Haydock and market principal Small Present, penalised 6lb for his recent Doncaster success, should go well for in-form trainer Sue Smith. COLONIAL DREAMS (3.15) was sent off at dismissive odds of 33-1 at Newbury on his first start in more than three months but was noted staying on steadily into third behind Regarding Ruth and Iwilldoit. Nicky Henderson’s gelding should strip sharper today and represents a bit of each-way value in an interesting head-scratcher.

      i just lumped so 100% falls sorry debby

    • dazzman1979 3 years ago

      Well done Deborah , and insider for lumping , at that price that’s all you can do ha . I had a little lump , it would of been a lump in my throat if it lost !

    • insider 3 years ago

      niven the c#nt cost the tricast, cheers anyway

    • recoba 3 years ago

      Easy as Deb20,Cheers
      Great start to the day and Moreno Gerárd scores first for Villarreal.

      Been backing him constantly as he’s on fire an added bonus I share a name with him.

      Moreno! 😂
      Moreno Recoba has a nice ring to it!

    • postman 3 years ago

      Coulden’t beleve it was still 5/4 👍

    • Deb2000 3 years ago

      Even your lump insider cant stop five star as hoped another bridle job 😁😁.
      I did say before his last race I thought he was really well handicapped that was 2+ stone well handicapped lol.
      He clearly loves the good ground jumps like a buck from it but his mark came from heavy ground races it’s been a well worked plan by Christian William’s.
      Have a wee look at the horses he was running against to get his handicap mark 😂😂😂

    Some thoughts on the Fairyhouse Card


    Not too much to go on here. Salt Wind has the best form and is the right fav. Was fav to win lto against Dunboyne but pulled too hard early on and was beaten when falling. I think the drop back in trip will benefit but I’m going to take a chance on Big Shanghai @ 16/1 for Paul Nolan.
    If you don’t already know, I’m a big fan of Nolan as a trainer and this horse was fav for his rules debut but was far too keen and weakened. If he can settle better today is a decent ew price.

    No interest in Hunter Chases

    Having re-watched the Cheltenham Festival over and over to see if I can find eye catchers for next year, I cant help think Mark Walsh gave Elimay a terrible ride. He constantly allowed Colreevy to bump her at every fence and then got outlasted on the run in. Having said that, she really ought to win here even giving Mount Ida 6lbs but at 4/6 it’s a no bet race.

    Spades are Trumps is very well h’capped and will find this easier than his last race. Gavin Cromwell yard is slso in great form but his jumping leaves a lot to be desired at times and you’re taking a chance on him just getting around, so at 12/1 4 places, I’ll chance Call it Magic, who was a 6/1 shot for the Topham in 2019 and has only run 3 times since then, and has dropped to a mark of 116 having won off 132 in the past with jockey taking a further 7lbs off. Will appreciate the ground too.

    A minefield to work out. Money coming for Lagnor Lodbrok with Jordan Gainford taking off the 7lbs Folcano was well fancied for the Martin Pipe but was brought down at the first so they will be hoping for compensation. Dunboyne beat Meticulous just over 4L lto but Meticulous meets him on 7lbs better terms and will surely have needed the run as it was his first since last July. With 5 places on offer 18/1 looks a decent ew bet.


    Another minefield. Willie Mullins has won 4 of the last 7.
    You’re generally looking for horses carrying 11st or less (18 of the last 20)
    7 or younger (16 of the last 20)
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Hybury was the Mullins plot for this year and is blue across the board on oddschecker, but I think Hurricane Cliff for HDB, could be well H’capped. He easily beat Captain Kangaroo lto and he’s rated 131, so a mark of 130 for this looks very generous.
    Currently 12/1 with 5 places.

    4.40 Party Central the one to beat with Codd onboard but little to go on and not a race I’ll be involved in

    Letsbeclearaboutit should take this for Cromwell. Only beaten by both Kilcruit and Sir Gerhard and I don’t think he’ll meat anything of that calibre in this race


    • dazzman1979 3 years ago

      I love a minefield! Some nice prices to get stuck into . Hopefully the thread comes out on top !

  9. elvis parsley 3 years ago

    Karl Phillipe 2-48 Carlisle 11-8 (BETFAIR). NAP…….

    Expect this to be near evens by the off 🏇

    will pay for the wife’s Easter eggs, if it loses its one Cadbury cream egg, between us both 😁

  10. elvis parsley 3 years ago

    Mount Ida 2-20 fairyhouse 9-4.

    Fancy this to beat the odds on Elimay with the weight pull swinging it for me.
    Beat 20 others at Cheltenham despite being bumped about and having to work her way through to win the kim Muir handicap comfortably.
    The drop in trip here the only doubt.
    Elimay ran well at Cheltenham but that was a mares race.
    Should be close as both had tough races there.
    Just think the difference in odds don’t reflect their runs at Cheltenham.
    Off level weights Elimay all day,
    Should be a good race to watch 🏇

    • double carpet 3 years ago

      Colreevy beat Mount Ida 12L giving 4lbs over 20f.
      Depends how they’ve recovered from Cheltenham but on known form Elimay wins.

    • elvis parsley 3 years ago

      Straight forecast Elimay and mount Ida as cover then 👍

    • recoba 3 years ago

      Salt Wind wins nicely DC!

Thanks to Deb2000 for rubberstamping Five Star Getaway for me Storm Nelson leapt off the At The Races card at me and Small Present obliged by a nose.

    200/1 😁 at moment and 70/1 for 5 places on betfair. Worth a bit of pocket change ew

    • Deb2000 3 years ago

      On at 70s 5 places Pete but were gonna need a few fallers by the look of it this is a far higher quality race than its last 1 👍

    • Gateacre Pete 3 years ago

      Yeah Debs, it looks well out of its depth and is 300/1 now. But with a few no shows or fallers he might sneak into 5th or 6th. 😊

      Nothing wrong with tooting your horn every winner should be celebrated. That was just a boredom bet I’m so impatient waiting for my main bets haha but looking how they are drifting in not overly confident but I’ve had plenty of drifters still win so I will just see how the day unfolds if I get 2 winners I will be happy with the prices I got them at

      I feel your pain we have all been there . When it’s close in the betting I usually opt for second fav by default

    • insider 3 years ago

      that’s why you bet those prices few and far between, i knew by looking at the card and a bit of assumption the gatekeeper would win, sometimes when they make it too obvious and there’s only one real rival.. go with it, price always dissuades people.

  28. insider 3 years ago

    • Deb2000 3 years ago

    • recoba 3 years ago

      What are your “rants” about then Insider??
      Using the word c@*t when a horse loses suggests you didn’t have £5 on it and Deb2000 is spot on.

    Well done the winners and still lots to go so best of luck with the rest of your bets,some nice winners!
    Good day thanks to my odds on double landing and DC and Deb20 early tips landing along with Moreno Gérard scoring a Hatrick fir Villarreal. 😁

    One too many maybe after a great day but nothing major on the last 2 and On Duty was to close to the off so I wouldn’t have been taking any credit if it won,hopefully and probably it was missed.

      Irad Ortiz is on 4 winners going for 5 and as I’ve said above Risk Taking looks good(that be 5 timer) but out to 3/1 and certainly not a £110 bet!
      The last 2 in my Yankee posted above would be my singles I’d point you towards.
