Fred Archer’s four runners produced a great race.

Went the day well? It rained, it blew, Madame took the shears to the barnet, and the racing turned out to be way better than I had expected – indeed the Fred Archer turned out to be a proper race, where an early tussle possibly left the favourite shy of petrol at the finish and David Simcock took the race in a three-way photo with Universal Order. 6 wins from 8 races and an overall profit of 15.67. We’ve got a bit to do this week to catch up with our exotic lunge on the Trifecta in the big handicap, but I have a cunning plan! First the results.

  • 2:25 WINDSOR REPARTEE Won 13/8 +3.25 ABOVE e/w 2nd 17/2 +0.7 +3.95
  • 2:45 NEWMARKET TIME SCALE Won 6/4 +1.5 – LIVE STREAM forecast -1 +0.5
  • 3:00 WINDSOR POGO Won 4/1 +8 
  • 3:20 NEWMARKET ASCENSION win Lost -1
  • 3:55 NEWMARKET DESERT ICON Won 11/8 +2.75 beats DAL HORRISGLE -1 +1.75
  • 4:15 CURRAGH SPEAK IN COLOURS Won 100/30 +6.67 beats MAKE A CHALLENGE Lost -1 +5.67
  • 4:30 NEWMARKET EL MISK beats PABLO ESCOBAR probably – perhaps a RFC or no bet. Best race of the day – didn’t bet. 0
  • 4:45 CURRAGH MAGICAL Won 2/5 +0.8

Over at Windsor, Ed Walker runs a brace of handicappers, which might qualify for one of the simplest systems I have. Essentially, you back any Ed Walker handicapper at Windsor that goes off at 6/1 or less. His first runner is GLORIOUS CAESAR who is currently 8/1 and therefore doesn’t qualify… yet. Keep an eye on the market. In the lucky last, he runs CARADOC who is currently 4/1. Does this system work? Well since 2012, he has had 72 qualifiers and 28 winners, for a 38%+ strike rate and an ROI of 64.39%. It is a very reliable guide. The fact that he had a qualifier in Pogo’s race today simply underlines the fact that no system is 100%.

START TIME runs at Thirsk in the 8:00 for Paul Midgely and he’s a horse that is on my watch list. He is obviously fancied and some bookies have already cut him from 8s to 13/2. Back him e/w quickly. Finally my man at the seaside. tells me that ZAP is ready to strike in the 2:30 at Yarmouth. Of course, he might have meant strike as in a withdrawal of labour…
