Monday selections

Sunday gave me a winning nap at last! AROUND A POUND proved horses for courses really is a term to pay attention too. He has only won twice now, both at Market Rasen. Lets hope Monday keeps the trend going.
THE OSTEOPATH 1630 NEWCASTLE (nap) – (WON – 13-2) this guy is a threat stepped back up to a mile. He has 3 wins over the distance, one of those on good to soft and one on heavy. The ground therefore shouldn't be a problem. He has course form too with 2 wins and four seconds. He is also back to his last winning mark over this distance. I'm expecting a huge run.
ODDYSEY 1540 REDCAR (nb) – (WON 8-1) this guy was ultra consistent last year. He won over a mile at Haydock on good ground and finished the season off in a class 4 over 9f finishing second to FLAXEN FLARE. We all know what he did at Cheltenham, that could prove to be decent form. He certainly has more to come.
SOLEMN 1450 WINDSOR (treble) – (unplaced) he has three wins over the distance on soft and is currently 1lb lower than his last winning mark which was over 5f on soft last year. The ground should be perfect and he is an excellent each way chance.

Naps 36/157 = 22.9%
Wins 147/794 = 18.5%
Placed 212/794 = 26.7%

Bank Holiday Monday

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%

A new week – Batman’s house

Monday’s selections

It is another cracking week of racing ahead, culminating in the Dante on Thursday. Let’s hope a clear Derby hope comes out of the race. Looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into the York cards. Before all that though here are Monday’s tips.
WAYNE MANOR 2010 WINDSOR – (nap) (unplaced) ran a great course and distance second when last seen, that was on soft, so the ground shouldn’t be an issue. Given some respect here and must be in the shake up. (4 points each way)

COOL BARANACA 1715 WOLVERHAMPTON – (nb) (unplaced) has to be of interest off this low weight after bolting up a quick fire hat trick over hurdles over the past month. (3 point win)

ZOMERLUST 1500 REDCAR – (treble) (WON 5-2 = 7 points) won a seller here last month and a few claimers last season. Goes on soft ground and should mop up here. (2 point win)

STAKE = 13 points

RETURNS = 7 points

BANK = – 25.9 points

Stats as of 14/5/12

WINS 29/152 = 19.1%
NAPS 11/52 = 21.1%
PLACED 32/152 = 21%
WIN OR PLACED 61/152 = 40.1%
