Yesterday was a great day of racing, followed up by another stonker today. Was really disappointed with a lot of my selections yesterday, particularly how poorly Loch Ba was, never in contention. Surely a change of tactics is needed?
The results left me feeling a little like this!
Anyway, as always you win some, you lose lots! Here are today’s selections. Remember these are my selections, you don’t have to follow them and may well disagree, that’s the beauty of racing!
AMBION WOOD 2.10 HAYDOCK (nap)(5th)
Was very impressed with the last run and only just got pipped at the post by Cotton Mill. A similar performance today should see him take this race. My #TEAMNAPS selection too.
GILES CROSS 3.20 HAYDOCK (nb) (WON 4-1)
Looked like he was going to win the Welsh National easily before LE BEAU BAI rompted home. He is 7lb better off today with ideal conditions and a track to suit. Very hopeful!
DUNRAVEN STORM 3.35 ASCOT (treble) (4th)
2 from 2 at Ascot and was a promising novice last season who I backed at Cheltenham. He disappointed there and had a decent return against RANJAAN the other week. He has a squeak at a decent price – DANGEROUS!
TOUR DES CHAMPS 3.55 HAYDOCK (PU)
What a trappy race this is. Initially went with GRAND VISION (won – why did I change my mind)but reckon this up and coming novice has what it takes today. Runs from the front and stays the distance and will like the ground.
Also fancy a little side bet on INDIAN DAUDAIE 2.00 WINCANTON (second last!!) can’t believe his price and Nichols touted him as a good thing early in the season. Has run poorly but blinkers on today. Hmmm! Going to have a small stake on these also RIVERSIDE THEATRE 3.00 ASCOT(WON 13-8), EXMOOR RANGER 2.55 ASCOT (FELL)AND UNCLE JIMMY 4.45 ASCOT (9th).
If you’re having a flutter good luck and remember to always bet within your means! The festival is coming!
