FIVE runners go to post for the King Richard III Stakes at Leicester, a Listed contest over seven furlongs, and POGO (2.10) can take some catching.

He powered home from the front in a Listed event at Windsor last June, scoring by more than five lengths. Mummys Tipple, fighting fit from the all-weather, found Khuzaam too hot to handle at Lingfield but had previously won well at Wolverhampton. A bigger threat is posed by Lord Campari but his ability to stretch out fully on quick ground has to be taken on trust.

At Haydock, FINEST SOUND (4.35) can justify favouritism in the mile handicap. He posted a career-best when second in last summer’s 22-runner Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot and was pipped by Astro King on his return to action at Nottingham 17 days ago. Third home Nugget landed the Newbury Spring Cup last Saturday and William Buick is a good booking.

WAIT FOREVER (5.55) is well-named as he remains a maiden after 12 starts in the UK. Marco Botti’s six-year-old arrived from Italy with an inflated mark but is gradually sliding down the ratings. His best chance to date arrives in the 1m 2f handicap at Doncaster and Wait Forever will strip sharper for his staying-on sixth to Throne Hall over course and distance at the Lincoln fixture. Cheek-pieces are on today.

KITTY’S LIGHT (3.40) can make history by becoming the first five-year-old to win the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown.

Victory would be a feather in the cap of trainer Christian Williams and Kitty’s Light battled hard for a narrow success at Kelso last month under today’s 3lb conditional rider Jack Tudor. Perhaps more significantly, Kitty’s Light has won three times on good ground, so underfoot conditions should be perfect, with the emphasis on speed.

The 3m 5f chase, first run in 1957 under the Whitbread Gold Cup banner, has thrown up some stirring finishes and this year’s renewal should prove no exception.

Plan Of Attack bids to give Rachael Blackmore another big day to remember. She made joyous Cheltenham festival and Grand National headlines, along with astute trainer Henry de Bromhead, and they join forces with the eight-year-old, still bang in contention when falling three out in the Kim Muir Challenge Cup at Cheltenham. Stung bookmakers are taking few chances and Plan Of Attack makes limited appeal at odds of around 9-2 favourite.

Two celebrating champions – Paul Nicholls and Harry Skelton – join forces with Enrilo, off 62 days since edging out Hold The Note at Newbury.

ON TO VICTORY (1.55), winner of the November Handicap on the final day of the Flat turf season at Doncaster, can repeat the dose by capturing the bet365 Novices’ Championship Final Handicap Hurdle on the final day of the National Hunt season. Alan King’s gelding has enjoyed a nice 42-day break since scoring at Warwick. Further down the weights, Gylo can go well in a first-time tongue-tie. William Hill offer five places for each-way purposes.

    Sceau Royal/ Nap S 3.05 100/30 bet him at 4s a couple of days ago. He will love this good ground surely to much speed for Altior and I thought he was very unlucky in Champ chase.

    12:30 Leicester- like sugar – 4/1

    1:35 Leicester- little boy blue 7/2 (that rhymes )

    Double trouble on the nose !

    • dazzman1979 3 weeks ago

      Both on the drift that’s what I like to see haha 😂

  3. double carpet 3 weeks ago

    4 bets for me all at Sandown and I will post them separately

    3.05 Sceau Royal

    Was very unlucky in the CC when badly hampered 3 out and still managed to finish less than 4L behind PTKO. It’s debatable whether he’d have won had he not been hampered, but would certainly have been bang there at the finish.
    Will love the ground and with Ornua probably in as a pace maker, it should ensure there’s a decent pace to the race which will also suit.
    There’s still question marks over PTKO away from Cheltenham and although it would be great to see Altior go off on a high, I just can’t have him having had just the 1 run this season.

    2
    • Deb2000 3 weeks ago

      Famous last words DC but surely there should be plenty of pace PTKO and even Altior should be pressing if he can go fast enough on this ground.
      Daryl Jacob should be able to sit as quiet as a mouse behind them a suppose the Sandown hill is a worry.

    Some stats that might help with your selection

    19/20 Ran over 2m 7f+ lto
    19/20 Not BF, F or PU lto
    17/17 – Had raced in the last 63 days
    16/17 – Carried 11-5 or less in weight
    14/17 – Carried 11-0 or less
    14/17 – Had won over 3m or further before
    13/17 – Aged 9 or younger
    12/17 – Returned 14/1 or shorter in the betting

    Also Sires Milan (0-8) and Kayf Tara (0-7) have never won this race.

    Purely based on the trends, I’ve backed
    Golan Fortune 11/1 ew 5 places (small bet) who didn’t stay in the Midland National but previous to that had some good performances behind the likes of Next Destination and will also like conditions.

  5. double carpet 3 weeks ago

    4.15 Younevercall 2/1 NAP

    Won the race 2yrs ago beating On the Blind Side by 9L and is actually a pound better off today and I’d say this has been the plan with this horse all season

    5.25 Solo 7/1 NB

    I’ve been watching this horse all season as I thought they would be plotting a handicap at some stage with him and I believe today is the day.
    He was rated 157 when running in last years Triumph and having run awful all season, is now down to 138. I thought Cheltenham might have been the target, but he didn’t turn up, probably as he ran so poor last year so today is the day (I hope) !!
    Tongue strap applied and Harry Skelton onboard catches the eye. Maybe the trainer sending jockey want to celebrate winning their respective championships together.

    • dazzman1979 3 weeks ago

      Seems like an intelligent racing man it’s good of him to share his thoughts. when making your own betting decisions it’s good to see what other people’s thoughts are You don’t have to agree with people you should go with what you feel but it’s definitely good when a few people think the same thing it most definitely helps you make up your mind or if you can’t and the odds allow it go for both haha 😂

    • recoba 3 weeks ago

      Like the Nap DC best of luck.
      Can’t decide for the 3.05 I think I’ll watch or maybe a R/Fc with Sceau and PTKO I’d be amazed but pleased if Altior won.

    3-05 sandown put the kettle on 11-4 (HILLS) NAP.

    Has 2 years in age, 7 pounds and has had 4 races less than in de sceau this season.

    Like DC I won’t mind losing this bet if altior wins, love that horse, was there when he beat the Irish hotpot min in the supreme as a 6 year old and was on big at 9-2 that day.
    Also behind that day.
    Buvair dair, supasundae, petite muchoir to name a few.
    At the time I didn’t realise how many future stars where running that day.

    Reminds me of Tiger roll, small in size but head down and relentless once in front, maybe at 11 he is too old to be giving away 7 pound to the kettle.
    Whatever happens hope he finishes sound and enjoys his retirement if that is what lies ahead.
    ——————————————
    2-30 mister fisher 7-4.
    If his jumping holds up that is.
    That’s been a issue this season for him but frodon has had a long campaign and if the fish can keep frodon in his sights maybe he can reel the favourite in.

    Back in calmer waters than the grade 1 races he has been in and has s place shout on earlier form, is 25-1 because he is top weight and Harry Skelton rides the stables not that fuisse.
    Not that fuisse is 7-2 but had a tough race only last week losing on the bob to nietchke.

    Single on Waldkonig( which looks set for a good season!) and 2/3 in my trixie yesterday followed by a single and a treble at 7/1 in the USA.
    Anything close to that today would be nice. 👌

    2:20 Limerick – Royal Pippen @ 50/1
    3:40 Sandown – Larry @ 40/1
    4:15 Sandown – Captain Zebo @ 11/1

  18. insider 3 weeks ago

    1505s – DOLOS 28/1 ew
    We only have 30 lengths to make up on SCEAU ROYAL from lto so if you back this, do it knowing we are probably coming last, as this level has just about found us out in the past, Nicholls has a dreadful record here if that means anything, only Politologue winning for him in the last year, 23 runners. We have won on heavy but this ground will suit, we’ve won at the track and have won over further, which wont hurt us in the steep finish.

    • insider 3 weeks ago

      sceau royal could win by 20 lengths and i’d still be happier losing on dolos. if you look objectively, throughout the week, you will not fail to find 20 better opportunities at this price, just because it’s a ‘big race’ people want an interest.. so for me, chancing a no hoper.

    • insider 3 weeks ago

      15:20 DOUBLE REFLECTION 5/1 ew shot to nothing, not looked at rivals.

      doyle and stone do well together in the other silks, ghiana on it last time and on board for blake, they won the first race, 2 mins to off so throwaways on CD win who should be close to placing at worst all being well.

    • insider 3 weeks ago

      stick with what you know i guess, doyle/stone, keep them in the book, mentioned them years ago and a couple weeks ago, knowing winning combos, especially the more obscure ones, is all you need.

      another to come nearer last than first for you horrible folk:

    ok time to pick winners, enough guesses, you can do that yourself.

    1705 H

    EL GHAZWANI combo initially catches the eye, going off 80. it’s won off 85 on the AW, nothing enthusing me to back it looking at the paper form. STARFIGHTER another with AW form, goes off 79, 5 above that on turf, not totally out of it but does not look backable with a spare for Buick on. CONVERTIBLE won off 66 on hcap debut on turf, another AW specialist however, 6 above his AW win. MR COCO BEAN is running off 69, his last turf win was off 70 in a slightly lower grade, by no means is he jumping off the page.

    I said no more guesses, this is too hard to be assertive and the price sucks but we take MR COCO BEAN with a 4 beat 7 saver.

      sadly no time for this race so a complete dart but PRINCE ROCK won lto over 1m, dropped 1f and raised just 2lbs, won over 7 before but is around 18/1, must be a reason which i haven’t spotted in the 20 seconds i took but EW extra and all that jazz, why not.
