    There were some pretty negative comments about a horse I tipped strongly a couple of weeks ago but as I said after the race it was obvious something wasn’t right


    Progressive sprinter Scalzo is set for a short spell on the sidelines after suffering a fractured pastern

    The Martyn Meade-trained three-year-old, who has recently been purchased by Sheikh Hamdan, sustained the injury when finishing down the field in the 888Sport Charity Sprint at York.

    Prior to that effort the son of Paco Boy had looked to be in for a profitable campaign after impressing in his maiden victory at Doncaster and on his handicap debut at Haydock.

    Meade said: “Scalzo has had three pins put into a fractured pastern. He either fractured it in the stalls or when he was put into the rails. It is moving ground at York and it can easily happen.

    “It was easy to explain his poor effort once we realised what he had done as we know that was not him, as he is a much better horse than that.

    “He has come out of the operation well and everything’s going according to plan. Hopefully he will be back again in about six weeks’ time.”

  3. johnb 3 years ago

    This is what i posted after the race and i didn’t think it was the ground


    Paul Hannigan did say he didn’t go on the ground and he did play up before the race but the trainer also tweeted after the race.

    Meade later tweeted a further possible explanation for Scalzo’s effort.

    He said: “Scalzo has been found to be lame near hind following his disappointing run and further investigation will take place when he returns home.”

    As for myself i could see he wasn’t right his action looked terrible, unbalanced and just not going
    At the minute I wouldn’t blame the ground but we should know more in a few days

  4. Nick 3 years ago

    Interesting picks Johnb, nice prices. Do u fancy these strong?

  5. johnb 3 years ago

    Nick yes quite strong and all overpriced I think

  6. Lossie jim 3 years ago

    Do you think Invoke will run after running today?

  7. garfo 3 years ago

    3.20newcastle…RED AVENGER…NAP 7.40 HAMILTON ..YOJOJO NB.

  8. johnb 3 years ago

    Lossie Jim I think she could run again its an easier race and longer distance will suit her more but even if she doesn’t run then the stake for the single gets returned and its a bit extra on the others

  9. Jamie 3 years ago

    I didnt get a free bet at 10bet

  10. garfo 3 years ago

    2.55 nottingham…MARKSTEIN..

  14. Rookie 3 years ago

    Ive taken the 6/4 on double up tomorrow. I expect this will be odds on SP

  15. Luke A 3 years ago

    Covered John’s 3 in an each way trixie. Not sure invoke will run. If it doesn’t, then the bet turns into 2 singles and 2 doubles, instead of 3 doubles and 1 treble. Here’s hoping for a great day

  16. john 3 years ago

    yes Jamie I got sorted after Mrf told me to do the same which I tried to thank him for afterwards but comment wouldn’t post
    so il say it now

  19. johnb 3 years ago

    Rookie double Up has a chance but one worry is that Top Boy at 14/1 has a really good chance to beat Double Up at these weights
    Top Boy beat 1 1/2 lengths but Top Boy gets an extra 8lb this time

  20. WasClueless 3 years ago

    Don’t know a lot about horse racing JohnB – but follow your tips with a profit – so firstly thank you!! .. but really like the look of your tips tonight … I try to research (Timeform whatever that is on BetVictor??) and what you have put up tonight makes good sense to me!!! GL All

    Bit gutted I couldn’t post my other two selections today off the Wifi they were –

    3.20 DREAM WALKER 10/1 (didn’t run great)

    4.20 HUMIDOR 12/1 (WON)

    However on a positive note just reiterates the fact I need to stick to the higher grade hcaps and look for the each way plays.

    On looking back through my records if I had stuck to Class 3 and above hcaps of 8 runners or more and 8/1 or over I would be up 187 points in the last 2 years but due to my scatter gun approach I am actually over 40 points down!! Therefore going to stick to these only and stop trying to bet in every race for a while! Live and learn I guess

    I may keep a side bank for the smaller fun bets away from my main bets but I will no longer post them here.

    From now on all my selections will be focused in these types of races and will all be each way unless stated otherwise

  76. NAGMAN 3 years ago

    JB out of interest do you know if your tips make a profit/break even at SP? Inc doubles, etc.

    Only reason I ask is that I would like to back all your tips but at the moment I seem to pick and choose depending on whether the price is still there. If you broke even at SP then I would back them all safe in the knowledge even if I get a better price on 1 or two I will be in profit.

    Realise you may not have this info!

  106. WasClueless 3 years ago

    Thnaks MrF – why I of course was cautious so instead Conor – just google.co.uk “horse speed ratings” and its number 2 in the list – always better though to be “at the races” ;)

  107. WasClueless 3 years ago

    Tried to be cryptic MrF but I don’t think I will be writing the telegraph crossword anytime soon !!!

  108. Alanm 3 years ago

    WasClueless well done great pics start posting them from now on looking good.

  109. WasClueless 3 years ago

    AlanM – thanks!! I am completely new to this and just learning – overall I backed 12 horses today (all at very small stakes) and had 6 winners … so made a profit … happy to post but advise people to follow with extreme caution!!!

  110. John 3 years ago

    WasClueless, which 6 were your winners today? Which races?

  111. WasClueless 3 years ago

    3.20 Red Avenger (Garfo tip)
    4.05 Approvado (Speed rating tip)
    4.40 Outlaw Torn (De Niro tip)
    4.55 Great Park (ANO site tip)
    7.20 C Peps (Speed Rating Tip)
    7.40 Lil S (Speed Rating Tip)
    Hope this helps … like I said also had 6 that lost!!!

  112. John 3 years ago

    Thanks. I was more interested in the speed rating tip winners, nice. You could be onto something….

  113. WasClueless 3 years ago
