Well as per normal it’s a bank holiday and the weather is crap. I’m sure that ground will be quite testing at some tracks tomorrow. The blog on Sunday continued in this same rich vein of form with a winner (AZULADA BAY – 4-1) and a second (THE CLYDA ROVER 4-1). It just shows that sometimes going to the races and watching the horses run can give you pointers for the future. Azulada Bay really impressed me at Warwick last time with how he stayed on, the visor clearly worked.
So here are my Bank Hoilday three :
EMBSAY CRAG 1605 CARLISLE – (nap) (unplaced) has been running well over this trip. He is better drawn today and this sharper track should help. Has won and been placed on ground softer than good.
FORK HANDLES 1555 REDCAR – (nb) (unplaced) ran in the Oaks last year and other top level races. Came second earlier on in the season at Kempton. The ground should be good or a bit quicker at Redcar which will suit, the soft at Ascot last time found her out. One of my horses to follow this year.
DEVOTED 1440 CHEPSTOW – (treble) (3rd – 4-1) has form on soft and good to soft. Has struggled in handicaps, but I fancy his chances on softer ground and Beckett/Crowley are on fire!
Stats as of 4/6//12
WINS 46/260 = 17.7%
NAPS 16/72 = 22.2%
PLACED 64/260 = 24.6%
WIN OR PLACED 110/260 = 42.3%
TREBLES LANDED = 2
Remember if you are having a wager to bet within your means. These are my selections and I am not suggesting you follow my advice, I only do this for a bit of fun!
