Monday's racing is very busy with six cards, but not much really grabs my attention and is an extremely good bet, so I've kept it to just the two selections:

Ripon 3:25

Hyperfocus is a very good handicapper on his day and he has been in good form recently. He has been placed three times in his last six runs, as well as winning two runs ago at Haydock when digging deep and winning with a bit in hand. He is a horse who likes to get on with things from the front end, so I expect him to make the running, which should be fine for DAKOTA GOLD to track and pounce late.

Carrying 10st makes this a tough assignment for Dakota Gold, but he is the class horse in this race and he has won when carrying 10st before, so it's not out of the ordinary for him to win this. A handicap mark of 101 at the age of 8 also makes this a tough ask, but similar to Hyperfocus he is in good form this year, where he has won once and finished runner-up another time, either side of two blowouts. The fact he has had two blowouts is a concern, but I think he is worth a punt in this contest considering he has been running in much stronger handicaps.

Nothing seems to phase this horse, he handles all types of ground and can run over five or six furlongs. He can make the running or sit behind the pace, he is a really lovely horse who has been an excellent servant to the Dods stable and has racked up a wonderful partnership with Connor Beasley who continues to improve as a jockey and win more big races including the recent Stewards' Cup, which he has won two years in a row.

Ayr 2:48

Though this race does seem competitive, I am going to play GLASSES UP in the place market, where you can get just over EVS to finish in the top 2. This course and distance specialist will try and make all in this race, which should be suited to him in a five-runner race, but I am slightly concerned that he is better over further. However, I still think he will run a big race and I struggle seeing him out of the top two in the finish.

Chance has to carry a big weight, even with the 5lbs taken off from Harry Burns' claim. What's The Story is getting on in years and normally runs his best races at York, even with a reduced handicap mark of 90, I think betting on him in a handicap at the Ebor meeting would be the way to go. White Willow is running in a better race and has to prove she is fit from a 71-day absence.

      Cheers Elvis.
      I liked it myself but was honestly going to go with one of Laurent from ATRs picks with my Monday Skybet £5 free bet but took your shout with Water Of Leith that paid near 4/1. 👍
      I Just missed the start of the 2.10 with Moore on the Fav which was a bit of luck or I’d been on to France all.

    • elvis parsley 2 years ago

      Nice return for a freebie recoba 👍.

    • recoba 2 years ago

    Wee Trixie on tipped up horses with £5 free bet.

    Lebsayer….7.00. 7/4
    Spanish..7.30. EVS

    Yankee and 2x singles…

    Thistledown -R4…Passionfortreasure. 13/8(** Skybet boost tracker horse that looked beaten but flew home last run to win)
    Prairie Downs -R8…Tallandlong. 7/4
    Philadelphia- R9..Miss Dillingham 5/2(*)
    Monmouth- R6… Friendly Fella. 7/4

    Others to consider that missed out and probably win with the main bet a bust!
    Be small stakes for interest in between other races.
    Finger Lakes -R9…Makeajiyfulnoise. 8/1 Ew or place is 6/4(tracker horse, lightly raced so will but improve but obviously tougher race)
    Prairie Downs -R2…Valiant Bling 10/3
    R5…Evil Knievil. 6/4

    Possibly do a small Trixie with the 3 from Prairie Downs as it’s a later meeting.

    All Bet 365 bar top pick at Thistledown as stated.

    GL and well done the winners today.

  6. recoba 2 years ago

    Dang! To late for putting in or I’d have went a Canadian rather than a Yankee but it’s odds on with others bar Skybet boost
    Fort Erie-R1… Paperback Hero. 11/10 *** Skybet boost. No such thing as a banker etc but certainly ttake 11/10 while it’s around)


    • recoba 2 years ago

      Ffs goes off 1/2 and beaten!!

      Hope for better with the rest but that’s a cow of a start.

  7. elvis parsley 2 years ago

    Caremuchmore 5-40 cork 🇮🇪.
    25-1 ew extra 10 places.
    66-1 ew extra 5 places (loose change)

    These are all donkeys and at least this has finished just in the top half in its 2 races which is needed for a top 10 finish, both were hurdles so this flat race may be a bit too short Though the slowish ground might help.


    • elvis parsley 2 years ago

      This been backed from 80-1 down to 20-1 but now drifting again to 28-1 🏇

    • elvis parsley 2 years ago

      Finished 5th for a double place payout 25-1 and 66-1 🇮🇪
      Starting price was 20-1, must have been my loose change on the 66-1 😂
