Bank Holiday Racing
There’s always a good card of August Bank Holiday racing throughout the country as we put our disappointing York festival behind us and get back to winning ways at the bread and butter events….
Yesterday we had a guest tipster in….Sean at BOOMSHAKALAKA……he gave us 4 winners from 6 selections……well done Sean, we’ll be having you back for sure!
We mentioned yesterday about how Facebook admins can make a little bit of money from their sites in UK & Ireland?
Today we’ve got three selections from Epsom and Ripon…..
16.20 Epsom……Just a couple of weeks back we had a nice 10/1 winner with Lady Herries, BARWICK at Brighton. He goes again today and whilst not a double digit price, has every chance in this ‘amateur gentleman’s race.
Epsom mirrors Brighton’s quirky switchback and horses that handle Brighton tend to get around Tattenham corner okay.
He’s been an improved horse since moving up to 12f and today is generally at 4’s and 9/2 but a best priced each-way saver 5/1 with BetVictor.
The very mention of handling Tattenham means that those with good C&D form fare well here, so we see the danger as David Simcock’s Nave. He won the ladies ‘Amateur Derby’ and is sure to go well again and also priced with each-way value at a best priced 7/1 win SkyBet.
16.10 Ripon.…. our NAP today goes to Ruth Carr’s EXPLOSIVE LADY who won an 8-runner maiden at Nottingham in July by 4½ lengths from June’s Moon. She then ran well at Ascot when third and hitting a bit of trouble in running with the 4th horse home that day, franking the form by winning since.
She’s held in high regard and holds an entry for the Cheveley Park Stakes, so the form looks good enough for this. At a short priced 2’s across the board, it’s a win only punt for us at a best 9/4 with BetVictor.
16.45 Ripon…..an ‘uber’ competitive handicap with various horses who have feature in our notebook over the past three seasons. Ingleby Angel had a monster run for us last year with 4 wins after going into the notebook last May and is 6 wins from 20 at the trip.
Watch out for one of our season’s disappointing notebookers, Ifwecan. Mark Johnston’s charge has given us no return at all after going in at Musslelburgh, which is usually the kiss of death when we write one off?
Second favourite today, we can only second guess that something’s in the offing and priced at an unbelievably short 5/1 with BetVictor.
Today though, former Luca Cumani trained BARTACK is our choice and also the choice of stable jock Danny Tudhope. A winner here last week, he has a 5lb penalty but looks good enough for a slot at a best each-way priced 33/5 with Betfair.
