Rizzel as he's already mentioned is away on holiday for a week so I've been asked to cover the horse racing tips in his absence.
Hopefully, I can find some profit in the upcoming week of racing.
Newcastle 2:05 – Adjuvant 6/1 EW
I've been slaughtered on here by a few and backed up by a few in the past for posting up each-way selections around 5 or 6/1.
If bookmakers are offering 6 places in a competitive race such as this I'll take advantage of it and cover my money as much as possible.
I respect that backing each way isn't everyone's cup of tea at 6/1 and most prefer to actually try and gain profit if taking each way but I like to be cautious with my money in races like this and its a personal opinion more than anything.
I really like the chances of Adjuvant in this race and it's a pity the price of 10/1 has now been cut short into 6s but even at 6s I think there's nice value there.
The only real negative I could find with Adjuvant is the fact he's unraced on the all-weather so there are question marks surrounding the surface.
Adjuvant steps up to 2m from 1m6 which I think is a great move from connections.
I think Adjuvant brings some nice form into this race. Adjuvant last run resulted in a 2nd place finish at Newmarket behind HMS President. If you watched the Royal Ascot meeting you'll know HMS President ran a cracker next time out to finish 2nd behind the eventual O'Brien winner Okita Soushi.
Adjuvant enters this race in decent nick and has young Billy Loughnane in the saddle claiming 3lb which of course aids his chances.
Newmarket 1:15 – Pogo 11/4
I've a soft spot for this horse, on his day he's a belter but this a slightly dodgy selection from me due to him being completely out of form.
He's been racing at the highest of standards and ridden completely off the pace which isn't what this horse is about.
I'm not arguing that this horse is still in good form because the figures speak for themselves but you have to at give the horse a chance. Running a front running horse who's normally aggressive and up with the pace completely off the gallop baffles me.
This is calmer waters tomorrow and I'll be completely baffled if jockey Kieran Shoemark doesn't opt to return to front running tactics tomorrow. If he's on song and running from the front he'll be a tough nut to crack.
Good luck in tomorrow's racing!
