A couple of decent winners in Giles Cross (4-1) and Riverside Theatre (13-8) were tipped up last week. The winnings from those will be going on today’s selections.
Had some awesome news this week courtesy of BestBritishBloggers. I’m off to a Coral Cheltenham Preview event at Haydock on Thursday. Nick Luck, Paddy Brennan and others make up the panel. Part of the deal is that I tweet and do a blog from the event. So, keep your eyes on my twitter feed @TheGolfBandit, and the blog will be up next Saturday. I have also won 2 tickets to the Cheltenham Festival on the Wednesday and a £10 Coral bet. Awesome or what!
Before we get there of course there is a little matter of some quality racing today! Here are the selections for today.
SPIEKEROOG 2.25 NEWCASTLE (NAP)(7th)
Won well last time out beating subsequent winner from last weekend BOURNE. Is well treated on that form and I reckon will follow up again today. My #TEAMNAPS selection too!
DEEP PURPLE 3.05 KEMPTON (NB) (FELL)
I backed this last time out when it won very well at Sandown. The shorter trip shouldn’t be a problem, and he will hopefully be ridden prominent then when he has his flat spot he won’t be too far behind NACARAT to challenge in the home straight.
PALACE MOON 2.50 LINGFIELD (TREBLE) (LAST – as always I have one!)
Won convincingly last time out at Lingfield and is the class horse in the race. A similar performance should be enough to take this and complete a hat-trick.
I’m having a few side bets on BABY MIX 2.00 KEMPTON,(WON 4-1) who can’t surely run as bad as last time! Also going for DODGING BULLETS 3.40 KEMPTON, (2nd)who beat the selection from the other week HISAABAAT on the flat. Finally I’m opting for PORTRAIT KING 3.25 NEWCASTLE,(WON 11-4) HOLYWELL 2.05 CHEPSTOW,(WON 15-8) and PICANSORT (e/w) 2.15 LINGFIELD.(2nd 7-1)
As always, remember these are my selections, and am not suggesting you follow my advice. If you do bet, remember to do so within your means.
Let’s hope we can light one of these up after collecting some big money today! Doubt it!
