Friday – 30th March 2018


Clearly things were amiss with Doctor Haze with a big drift from the morning show going off at 18’s  and was pulled up before the 7th:( However, the race was also overshadowed by the tragic loss of the Tom Lacey  favourite who dived the last in what proved a fatal fall – thoughts go out to trainer and connections:(


Back to Today….

Today is a day of NH abstinence that sees the All-Weather Championships day at Lingfield. We’ll take a day out as we have a few things to sort out following our loss last weekend  – we will be back on Saturday morning with a look at just Carlisle & Haydock with Newton Abbot already off.

As ever, please drop us a line at with any questions if still unclear.


BOL (Best Of Luck!)

Here’s today’s free Timeform and the assist for the Lingfield card from the ‘speedmeisters’… on the highlighted link to take you through to your Betfair account……

1.30 Sunbets All-Weather Championships Apprentice Handicap (2) 7f1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Eljaddaaf recorded another impressive come-from-behind success over C&D last month and he’s bound to go well in his hat-trick bid, especially with a well-run race on the cards. Master Speaker, Squats and Gallipoli are all potential threats.

Timeform Top Rated:
116 4. SQUATS William Haggas Georgia Cox
114+ 14. SILENT ECHO Peter Hedger Ben Robinson (3)
114 5. ELJADDAAF Dean Ivory Jack Duern

2.00 Betway All-Weather Marathon Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1m7f169y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Watersmeet has really thrived on racing this winter, and he looks sure to make another bold bid in a race where he acquitted himself well last year. Red Verdon is unproven at this trip, but merits plenty of respect, while Mountain Bell may still have more to offer.

Timeform Top Rated:
124 5. RED VERDON Ed Dunlop James Doyle
122 6. SOLDIER IN ACTION Mark Johnston Adam Kirby
122 7. WATERSMEET Mark Johnston Joe Fanning

2.30 32Red All-Weather Fillies’ And Mares’ Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 7f1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Diagnostic likely hasn’t been seen to best effect in small-field tactical affairs on her last 2 outings and is taken to get back on the up with a bang now. Summer Icon ran a blinder when runner-up at listed level at Wolverhampton 3 weeks ago and is likely to go close with a repeat of that form, while Zest has won twice here this winter and is also much respected. 117p 3. DIAGNOSTIC William Haggas James Doyle

116 13. ZEST James Fanshawe Daniel Muscutt
115 11. SUMMER ICON Mick Channon Charles Bishop

3.05 Betway All-Weather Sprint Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 6f1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Little to choose between most of these so tactics/luck in running are likely to be key. This could be set up for a closer and Atletico looks the one who’s overpriced. Kachy has looked better than ever when winning both his starts here this year and is an obvious threat along with last year’s winner Kimberella.

Timeform Top Rated:
131 8. KACHY Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
129 9. KIMBERELLA Richard Fahey Paul Hanagan
128 7. INTISAAB David O’Meara Martin Harley

3.40 32Red 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 6f1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
Corinthia Knight goes from strength to strength and will likely take a bit of stopping as he bids to make it 4 in a row. Breathless Times has come a long way in a short space of time and looks capable of making an impact at this level, while Never Back Down has been saved for this since winning at Wolverhampton in December and is another who looks open to further progress.

Timeform Top Rated:
117 3. CORINTHIA KNIGHT Archie Watson Oisin Murphy
114p 9. NEVER BACK DOWN Hugo Palmer Josephine Gordon
111 10. ROCK ON BAILEYS Chris Dwyer Lewis Edmunds

4.10 Sunbets All-Weather Mile Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1m1y

Analyst’s Verdict:
A winner at this meeting 12 months ago, Second Thought has improved again this winter, landing back-to-back listed contests. He boasts an unbeaten record of 6-6 on all-weather and looks sure to make a bold bid to maintain that impressive statistic. Arcanada, Goring and Sacred Act can do battle for the minor money.

Timeform Top Rated:
127 10. SECOND THOUGHT William Haggas James Doyle
124 1. ARCANADA Tom Dascombe Richard Kingscote
121+ 2. CAPTAIN JOY Tracey Collins R. P. Whelan

4.40 Betway Easter Classic All-Weather Middle Distance Championships Conditions Stakes (2) 1¼m

Analyst’s Verdict:
Master The World needed the intervention of the stewards to win the Winter Derby 5 weeks ago but he was a deserving winner (likely to have got up in his own right but for interference from the demoted Mr Owen) and is taken to land another valuable prize. Mr Owen is sure to make another bold bid with Victory Bond another to consider.

125 10. VICTORY BOND William Haggas James Doyle
124 5. MR OWEN David Simcock Oisin Murphy

We have promoted Declan a few times and you have all come back with positive responses

Declan has years of experience … January 1979 he started work as the Sports Sub Editor for the Evening Press and spent over 16 years working for The Irish Press Group before joining The Irish Sun in December 1995 as a Racing Correspondent.

Successful tipping was obviously a key component of the job, and finished second in the Irish Field naps competition last year.

Historically his big tipping claim to fame is that he had the first five winners – from six races – on the opening day at Cheltenham in 2000 which made front and back page news. He also tipped two 20/1 Galway Plate winners in three years, and the Powers Gold Cup on Easter Sunday – now the Ryanair Gold Cup – has also been very lucky for him with Jadanli 25/1 and One Cool Cookie 12/1 winners which immediately spring to mind.

For all that jumping success, the Irish flat racing scene is his speciality,- nobody comes near to his depth knowledge and achievements.

Big race and classic successes include Irish Derby winner Frozen Fire 20/1, Black Minnaloushe 20/1, Voleur De Couers 9/1, Yesterday 6/1, Halfway To Heaven 13/2, Misty For Me 10/1, 5/1 and 100/30.

Recent Royal Ascot gems include Roca Tuma 20/1, Domination 12/1, Lolly For Dolly 11/1, Bracelet 10/1, Declaration Of War 15/2 and Mustajeeb 9/2.

Over this Easter weekend we’re looking forward to two fantastic Irish Festivals though it’s an area we will personally not be covering in our selections……

Both Cork and Fairyhouse host these highlights of the Irish sporting calendar and with plenty of races over the 4 days this is going to be a wild Spring weekend of betting for all serious horse racing fans.
