Morty was a winning selection from yesterday. The thread was a bit dead so I doubt many of you got on him at 11/2, but hopefully, some of you did and made a nice profit.

It's Friday and that's great to hear as this week has had some dreadful racing. Today, we have plenty of races to pick from, including some nice handicaps and a couple of Class 1's over in Ireland if that's what you prefer.

Thirsk 4:30

It was not a surprise to see RAVENGLASS winning with a fair amount in hand last time out at Redcar as he has been showing some good levels of form in class 6 races since his mid-season break.

He has finished in the places three times in the last three runs, which has seen him go from third to second to eventually breaking his maiden tag last time out. The form of his runner-up finish looks very strong for a class 6 race. The winner has since won again in a competitive and well-paid Racing League Class 3 handicap. The third has won twice since. The fourth has finished runner-up in his only run since, finishing a neck to a very in-form horse Temper Trap, who has won four of the last five runs. Even the fifth horse from the run at Ayr has come out and won, so it's fair to say that form line is bombproof and has to be respected.

Ravenglass has only gone up 5lbs for his win and I believe that is definitely surmountable. The odds aren't great, but I think he could be tough to beat.

Newmarket 3:10

It might seem daft going for YANTARNI, but I just get the feeling this horse could have much potential now that he has been gelded. We've seen it on a few occasions in recent years with Charlie Appleby and when he decides to geld a horse, it often brings out tonnes of improvement and I think the same applies to this son of Dubawi.

It must pain the Godolphin team when they have to geld a horse like Yantarni who has a good pedigree, but sometimes it needs to be done as they can't improve without having the ol' chop. Yibir is one who instantly springs to mind who improved at a rate of knots after being gelded. He went on to be a Group 1 winner later on in that season, so it definitely paid off.

The lads at home in the Appleby yard must think a fair bit of this horse as he has gone off favourite 3x in a row, twice being short (8/15 and 11/10), where fingers were clearly burnt. I mentioned earlier that he has a lovely pedigree, and it would be a surprise if he didn't go on to become better than his current opening handicap mark of 80. He is by Dubawi and out of a man who has produced Group Winners, including Khawlah who went on to breed Masar who is Godolphin's first-ever Derby winner.

I am taking a chance that he is better than what we've seen, and I'm risking his fitness being up to scratch on the back of a 262-day break, but this race looks winnable and I hope the gelding operation has worked a treat. The money has come in for him again, so is shorter than I'd like, but I'll still be having a small play.

Hamilton 6:53

William Haggas is a wonderful target trainer and whenever he sends a horse up to the Northern and Scottish racetracks, they have to be highly respected as they won't be going up there for the fun of it.

PRIDE OF PRIORY will have to be well-handicapped to win this Heritage Handicap worth £51,540 to the winner, as he carries top weight, but he is a horse at the top of his game, arriving on a hat-trick and a horse who could possibly be seen in Listed company in the near future.

William Haggas won this race last year with Mahrajaan who was well-handicapped, winning off a mark of 85 and is now rated 99, so today's horse will have a much tougher task, but I think he could be up to it. He won a Class 2 race at the Shergar Cup meeting last time out and he cruised into contention that day and won with a fair bit in hand.

As we come towards the latter stages of the flat season, the trainers who target the trainer's championship start to get deep into it and they try to plunder any expensive handicap, no matter how far they have to travel. Currently, Haggas is leading the charge and I think he wants to win it this year quite badly, so the fact he has sent this lad up to win this fairly expensive handicap suggests he really fancies his chances as he will have had a couple of horses who could've turned up to this, but he has gone for Pride Of Priory.

    Saratoga- R7…Acoustic Ave. 4/1
    R8…Make Mischief. 7/2
    R9…Key Point 11/8 Skybet boost (** likeliest winner with improvement in the cards v older horses,NAP by a few too and can’t disagree)
    Del Mar -R7…Silver Lightning 5/2


    Saratoga-R1…Miracle. 4/1(*tough race but very impressive debut much like others but at 4/1 I’ll have small a single on it)
    R5…Let Her Inspire You. 11/2(big improvement last run and hopefully can improve as much again)
    R10…Jerry The Nipper. 11/2( had no faith in my notes last time and he went and win with massive improvement last time at 20/1,hopefully improves again at good price)
    Small single on Saratoga R1 and probably a small Trixie just in case but CANT back then all?

    All prices Bet365 unless stated.

    GL all and well done the winners today!

    • recoba 2 years ago

      I should took the chance Make Mischief would be running on turf with Saratoga due rain and it has.

      Now EVS from 7/2.

      Mustn’t grumble!”

    • recoba 2 years ago

      Fields are being decimated (that the word 😋) with Saratoga rain with Jerry The Nipper 10/1 an likely to be pulled !
      Most confident in Del Mar pick and Making Mischief but there only in my Canadian.
      Acoustic Avenue and more importantly Key Point have sloppy form in past so here’s hoping but be a few Rule 4s. R8s maybe? ;)

  5. ew thief 2 years ago

    Strong Johnson 6.35tip 10-1

    • recoba 2 years ago

      Jerry The Nipper now 7/4 from 10/1 Bet365 n for my £3 bet I can cash out £14.31 odd and £4 bet earlier at 11/2 £12.80 ?? 😆

      Might just do that!

  6. recoba 2 years ago

    Need be quick but

    Mailbox Money -R6 Gulfstream is 3/1 Bet365(** he’s as short as 1/2 Paddy Power and 6/5 Skybet

    • recoba 2 years ago

      Bookies relee me in there with there not a clue attitude!


    • recoba 2 years ago

      Cashed out 1 of Jerry The Nipper bets as clearly NOT a mudder which is strange as his mother was a mudder and his father was a mudder so he comes from a line of total mudders but…dems the breaks!

      Big night tomorrow Stateside. Close as you’ll get to ‘Breeders Cup’ type Saturday and right off the bat Jackies Warrior and Epicentrer,hes surely beyond due a win in grades racing look a good double at 2.4/1 Skybet

      Saratoga R5 and 11. Jack Christopher to pats 5/1 n change but I’ve my doubts although definitely worth a play in a treble.

      Onwards to tomorrow …
