I LANDED a nice double-stake nap on Sunday when Mama Africa won at 2-1.

Thanks to the drift it was a 4pts profit on the day. October is now 1.56pts down.

Well done to all the Sunday winners – here are Monday's tips.

Pontefract 4.20

Aristo Du Plessis changes code here for his flat debut and has the potential to be the class horse of the race. Favourite Know Your Limit is top rated on 80 but Aristo Du Plessis judged on his hurdling mark could be a 90+ rated flat horse and with the jockey's claim he should have a weight advantage.

We also have Spencer on the favourite so hopefully he will hold him up and connections of Aristo realise this and get their jockey to ride him positively and make it a strong pace as he will easily stay the distance. This could be over quickly if he can get an uncontested lead.

Pontefract 4.50

Minotaur is another horse that has changed codes but does have plenty of flat experience. He ran a good fourth last time out at Leicester but looked in need of the run. This is a weaker race and he should take a bit of beating as he is a listed winner in France just a year ago.

    I remember that Leicester race and thought to myself 25 -1 looks huge for a listed winner who then won 2 hurdles easy as you like.
    he went down by 5 lengths but was a good show as it was only ran over 1 mile 3, which was the shortest distance it had run.
    this is 2 mile 2, which should suit as he sauntered home over 2 mile 6 at cartmel so stays.
    best price now 10-11 so by breakfast time may be too short.

    do you think aristo might be using this for a blowout before the jumps campaign ?
    he hasn’t ran since February and his jumps form from jan 2016 wasn’t great, beaten by some large distances though they were in class 1 and 2 races.

    • Johnb 12 months ago

      In the past you would get connections using a flat run just to get a horse ready and with some connections that’s still true, part of my work is an advisory service to connections and I have advised the connections of 40+ horses to go the flat route for a few runs, yes still to get them ready for the jumps but also to pick up extra money, there is a lot of money out there in winnable flat races for these nh horses, any layoff isn’t ideal but this is a winnable race for Aristo Du Plessis, he is a proven front runner in a race where he could get an easy lead from a good draw, if he gets away early and makes it a good strong pace then he would be hard to catch, the jockey has to be positive though on a horse with plenty of stamina running over a less than ideal distance, Spencer on the favourite is a big plus because of his racing style

  9. double carpet 12 months ago

    Fairyhouse card tomorrow is a reschedule from the abandoned card on Saturday.
    There was plenty of money for CADRELLI on Sat and was backed down to 2/1 with boyles and 5/2 paddys but 9/2 was available with some uk firms.
    Worth keeping an eye on the market once they open.
    Trainer is 3-5 Here and smullen booked for the first time.
    I actually think smullen will have a good day and as he’s 4 behind KEANE in the jockeys title will need it.
