Saturday’s Racing Tips

Well, Friday wasn’t a train crash by any means. A 10-1 Irish Cambridgeshire winner in JASSAAR. My first choice CURRENT OPTION was 2nd. Two other horses I mentioned filled the next two spots – and yes Jessica Harrington’s ONLYHUMAN performed as you would expect a Raceweb tip to behave and came plum last. Still and all, I picked up some spare dosh for tomorrow and a small forecast – but Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Look at the disparity between the generous Irish Tote and the ludicrous “Industry” returns. Even by my very old-fashioned calculations, I would have expected just shy of £150. If I were the Irish, I’d build a border 200′ high to keep the thieving Brits out!

  • EX: €294.60 Trifecta: €2,327.80
  • SF: £114.17 Tricast: £830.54

Meanwhile, Peter O’Tool’s list produced two decent performances, and reminded one that bad luck like a startled exit from the stalls can unhinge the best performances:

  • Exchequer 17:45 Thirsk Lost (Watch next time. Broke badly)
  • Lyndon B 15:50 Sandown Won @ 2/1
  • Fort Myers 17:20 The Curragh 3rd @ 6/1
  • Seraphinite 14:10 Sandown Lost
  • Sapa Inca 18:55 Hamilton Lost 4th Elysian Flame Won @ 9/1

As I write the ground tomorrow is my principle concern. I am heading to Midhurst, where I anticipate sun. Ditto Sandown, but Beverley (G/S) and Chester (G) might very well have some rain around two o’clock. I think I shall assume it won’t have got in to change the going. Keep an eye on it.
