After a last minute success of Hey Big Spender (14-1) I managed to recoup a few loses. It also was the first winner on the blog for a while and the frustrations of tipping horses that were not getting a sniff was starting to grate!
So, we head into this week with renewed confidence and vigour. I have decided to op for two Lucky 15’s this week, but have indicated my top three as normal.
FIRST LUCKY 15
FINIAN’S RAINBOW 3.10 ASCOT (NAP)(2nd)
The way the horse recovered from a bad blunder last time out and still get up and beat Wishful Thinking shows this horse has class and is also brave. His jumping is a little suspect, yet I reckon with a clear round will have too much for the rest today. It’ll be interesting to see how good AL FEROF is.
NOLAND 3.45 ASCOT (NB) (6th)
An encouraging return in the Lexus last time should have sharpened him up. A horse with bags of class and if he can reproduce his old form will wipe the floor with his rivals today.
PEARLYSTEPS 3.30 HAYDOCK (TREBLE)(2nd)
Was well in contention with CANNINGTON BROOK last time at Haydock. He was just getting into the race when tipping up. He has the ground in his favour again and I think he will travel well into contention and stay on up the demanding Haydock run in.
BILLY MERRIOT 2.45 WINCANTON (Fell)
Running of what appears to be a decent mark, and has the potential to run well and take this class of race.
SECOND LUCKY 15
PATEESE 2.35 ASCOT – (6th)willing to give him another go to bounce back to the form of his first run this year.
OUR GIRL SALLEY 2.05 ASCOT – (3rd)has a good record with Geraghty on board and will win nicely
TIPPERING 2.20 HAYDOCK (Last!!!)– has been knocking on the door recently and just got pipped here last time, likes the ground and today could be his day.
MIAS BOY 3.35 LINGFIELD –(5th) returned back to form last time at Wolves and should go close again!
If you’re having a bet good luck, and remember these are my selections for today and I’m not suggesting anyone takes my advice. If you are betting, do so within your means!
Good luck and here’s to a cracking days racing.
