We all need to have a dream, mine is to one day own my own racehorse! The picture also relates to my best bet today too!
Last week was pretty profitable with the wins of PORTRAIT KING, HOLYWELL and BABY MIX. I was really impressed with Baby Mix and it may have swung my vote for Cheltenham. I had a fantastic night at the preview event on Thursday and will put a blog up about it later today.
Onwards to today now. A lucky 15 to kick things off.
DAVE’S DREAM 3.10 NEWBURY (NAP)(PU)
Has had a disappointing season so far, yet has always had a touch of class. He will like the better ground and has reportedly been schooling well. He could come in at a decent price.
AMITOLA 3.55 LINGFIELD (NB)(4th)
Ran a cracker for this blog a few weeks back with a very smart ride from the front. I would expect him to push the pace again and seemed to have more in the tank when winning so well last time. Jimmy Fortune on board should help!
TAKEROC 4.35 DONCASTER (TREBLE)(3rd – 3-1)
Smart effort last time out behind Finians Rainbow. Harry Derham taking 7lbs off will help his cause and he has slipped down the handicap a bit to a mark where he can hopefully win from today.
BLAZING BAILEY 2.40 NEWBURY (PU)
Hasn’t won for a bit, but did impressively last season. The drying ground should help and this is a drop in class too. Hopeful the old boy will get his nose up on the line.
Having a few little bets on KANGAROO COURT 220 DONCASTER, (3rd – 10-3)and ZAFRANAGAR 345 NEWBURY(4th) and I fancy the HOBBS/JOHNSON pairing on IMPERIAL CIRCUS 205 NEWBURY.(2nd – 11-1)
Remember these are my selections and I am by no means an expert, so am not recommending you take my advice. If you are going to have a flutter please bet within your means.
The Festival is within touching distance, getting excited and have a few ‘tips’ to tell you about from Thursday night including on from NICKY HENDERSON and what RICHARD JOHNSON rhinks his best ride of the week is.
