Super Saturday


A super Saturday of racing today that leads up to next week’s Grand National. I’ll be doing a little Grand National blog next week in connection with Best British Bloggers and Coral . Look out for it prior to the Aintree festival.

Anyway on to Saturday, I have had a pretty disappointing week on the blog with only two winners Makbullet and Domtaline. So I’m hoping Saturday will improve things and get us going in the right direction for Aintree. My initial choice for the big race is CAPPA BLEU by the way! These are my best three for today :

SILVER BULLITT – 1520 – MUSSELBURGH (nap) (unplaced) didn’t really progress after winning a maiden last year, but to be fair there were valid reasons, those being too far a distance and all weather course. He drops back in distance today! He looks to be on a handy mark and has plenty of potential. He strikes me as a horse that Mark Johnston will have bang on and will win a few handicaps this year. (3 points each way)

GABRIAL – 1550 – MUSSELBURGH (nb) (unplaced) won very nicely last year first time out at Chester and then followed that up with a skillful display at Beverley beating an opponent today CRAVAT. He was hyped up for Royal Ascot and ran very poorly in the Coventry. Richard Fahey always stressed last year he would need at least 6 furlongs, so this mile trip should be a good step up.(3 point win)

EXCEL BOLT – 1445 – MUSSELBURGH (treble) (3rd – 8-1 = 6 points)was a very speedy two year old who lost his way a little last year. He has two previous victories here at Musselburgh and I’m hoping that he recaputures a bit of form at a favourite track. (2 points each way)

STAKE = 13 points

RETURNS = + 6 points

BANK = +103.3points

STATS as of 7/4/12 WINS 13/52 25% NAPS 4/18 22.2% TREBLES 2/18 11.1%

I’m also going to have a little side bet on the following with a Lucky 15 on :
EXCEL BOLT 1445 MUSS (3rd 8-1)
GABRIAL 1550 MUSS (unplaced)
SILVER BULLITT 1520 (unplaced)

Then the following singles :

RIGUEZ DANCER 1530 HAYDOCK (win) (unplaced)
FORTINBRASS 1335 KEMPTON (win) (unplaced)
MAVERIK 1405 KEMPTON (win) (4th 7-1)
VAMIZI 1555 CARLISLE (win) (3rd – 13-8)
SUBURBAN BAY 1425 HAYDOCK (win) (unplaced)
STORM HAWK 1515 KEMPTON (ew) (unplaced)
CLOUDY BOB 1455 HAYDOCK (ew) (2nd – 33-1)
CAPTIVATOR 1440 KEMPTON (win) (Won 7-1)

Please remember to bet within your means and I’m only a hobby gambler and am by no means suggesting you follow my advice!

Let’s hope the bullitt flies home!
