Cheltenham Horse Racing Bet


9/4 Carruthers, 5/2 Madison Du Berlais, 3/1 Inchidaly Rock, 12/1 Joe Lively, 12/1 Taranis, 20/1 Ollie Magern, 33/1 Knowhere.

The Argento chase is a Grade 2 chase over 25f. The history
of this race demands a horse that has ran in a Grade 1 race
or a Grade 2 at the very least. All past winners did that and 9 out of 10 had Grade 1 before.
They also show you want a penalised horse as well which means in this race carrying more
than 11st. Therefore I am ignoring TARANIS with a massive absence.
OLLIE MAGERN is out unpenalised and
older than any past winner. INCHIDALY ROCK does not
appeal as he has no Graded form and none of the winners
came from a Novice Chase like him. Last year JOE LIVELY
won this but he was in much better form then and I couldnt
trust him  aged 11 with an inferior preperation. KNOWHERE
is too old. I dont fancy any of the above. This is between
me about CARRUTHERS is past winners came from Listed
or a graded Chases and he comes from a Graduation Chase
and has fewer chase starts than every other past winner.
MADISON DU BERLAIS  has a solid profile and comes
from the best trial race the King George at Kempton. Its
pretty cleat he is best on a Flatter track but he has placed here at the Cheltenham Festival
and does have some form here. I am going with CARRUTHERS as he loves smaller
fields and has a great record in them.

Selection – CARRUTHERS

Was best priced 9/4 earlier today when I sent this out to full members.

Has shortened up a  touch since then.

No Account Bet

I’m not having an account bet today as I do
not like anything strongly enough. Every Bet
will now be an account bet but that does not
mean we should have bets when they’re not
strong enough and I’ve been here before on
this particular Saturday. The card at Lingfield
doesnt offer much so the only option is soft
and sloppy ground and the National Hunt.

It will take a day or two to settle down into a
rhythm and get the timing right but whilst its
a positive long term change we shouldnt be
falling over ourselves to have bets when the
racing doesnt throw us much.

I have looked at quite a few races for Full Members.
Here is one of them for the free blog.


4/1 Garleton, Huka Lodge , 7/1 Sherwoods Folly, Supreme Keano
8/1 Never So Blue 10/1 Jaunty Journey, Malko De Beaumont 14/1
Boris The Blade 14/1 Himalayan Trail.

This is a 3m 4f Handicap Chase for horses rated 0-129.
There have been 68 similar races at this time of year.
None of the 68 winners were 13 years old or more like HUKA LODGE.
I dont fancy him for the following reasons.

* Since 1994 there has been 605 similar 3m 4f handicaps
* Thats any time of year and between 3m 3f and 3m 5f
* Horses aged 13 or more won 10 of the 605 races
* Only 1 horse that age defied a months absence

HUKA LODGE is vulnerable as a 13yo. No horse as old as
HIMALAYAN TRAIL defied such an absence. I dont like
doesnt look good enough. I think the weight could beat
JAUNTY JOURNEY an inexperience horse who hasnt yet
completed in a handicap. SHERWOODS FOLLY has a
chance but a tough weight and I didnt think he would win.

GARLETON – Strong Profile and likely winner
SUPREME KEANO – Great chance if he can jump well
NEVER SO BLUE – Good chance – Local owners – Has to stay

Horse Racing Tip For Lingfield

Lingfield 2.10 – ALFIE TUPPER 7/2 Coral –  betfred – bet365

ALFIE TUPPER is still well handicapped and is in a
good spell of form having ran himself fit now and I
think he can win the 2.10pm. He has had excuses for
two very close defeats. He doesnt have many to beat
in this race and whilst everything at this track can be
vulnerable to fast finishers and how the race is run I
cant see this horse not going very close today and
win lose or draw I will be surprised if he is beaten by
more than a length and with luck in running can win.


Bet African Nations Cup – Betdaq Handicap
(CLASS 5) (4yo+ 0-70) 1m2f

3/1 Alfie Tupper, 5/1 Atacama Sunrise, 6/1 Bavarica
7/1 Rapid City, 8/1 Jeer , 10/1 Charlie Smirke Bosamcliff
16/1 Society Venue, 25/1 Alqaahir 25/1 Maybe I Will
25/1 Whodunit.

This is a 10f Handicap and we have 350 of these races
at this time of year. Picking out a few poor profiles I’d
oppose MAYBE I WILL as a mare absent 230 days. I
oppose WHODUNIT from 7f with 1 run since March.
BAVARICA doesnt appeal as no exposed mare aged
7 or more defied a months absence in the 350 races. I
think RAPID CITY is a poor bet with 1 run since June.
SOCIETY VENUE looks underraced to me and I dont
want him from a career high mark. ALQAAHIR would
not be my first choice aged 8 absent 40 days. There
were a few winners like that but almost all had far less
weight and almost all had more backclass as well. It’s
hard to rate BOSAMCLIFF as she has been hurdling
but I dont really want a mare from hurdles and she is
respected but avoided. I looked at 4 year old fillies in
350 races like ATACAMA SUNRISE. I found 8 fillies
like her that  came from 10f handicaps but those who
ran within the past fortnight had a 0-50 record and it
was only those from a longer break that won. That’s
possibly a statistical blip but its a 0-50 record and I
dont see ATACAMA SUNRISE as safe because of
it. I looked at 4 year olds like CHARLIE SMIRKE who
came from Maidens with 9 or more career starts and
found a 2-66 record. To be fair to him both winners
were male like him and came from 8f maidens which
when applied turned into a 2-13 record so he’s fine.

CHARLIE SMIRKE – I have found 2 similar winners

JEER – I give him a chance as he is well handicapped

ALFIE TUPPER – Strong Profile

No Selections Today

I am having a blank day and letting you pick from
the message. Not ideal for a Saturday but there’s
not much choice and if I had to go with one bet it
would only be a contrived bet to fob you off rather
than a bet I strongly fancied and I’d probably have
had an each way double on Major Lawrence (12.55)
and Septemberintherain (1.05) and I dont want to
give you a bet I dont want myself so decided to be
patient and wait for Tomorrow. There will be a mail
on Sunday at Southwell so maybe that will be better.

Having a few bets myself today. I like the 12.55pm at
Kempton. I have backed MAJOR LAWRENCE at 5/2
and saved on Mutajaaser. I have played in the Match
Bet on Major Lawrence to beat Jan Mayen. My work
in the race forces me to play because of a negative.
It could well lead me to the wrong conclusion and I
have one bogey from Gary Moores that worries me.

I like SUPPORT FUND each way in the 2.25pm but I’d
rather have a recent run against two strong opponents
who have had one so I see him more of a personal bet
than a bet I’d want to suggest a large stake on.

I have had a nibble on MAGNITUDE (12.35 Lingfield)
but non runners had spoilt any each way options and
cut his price. He is now the outsider of six around 7/1
which isnt as good as the price he would have been
had the non runners taken part but he is an option.

No Bets Today. There will be more oppurtunity tomorrow.


T O D A Y ‘S   R A C I N G

Not the best of Friday messages. Just the one
bet divided in two wins and a double but there
was nothing to show from that and I wasnt too
surprised we drew a blank as it looked a pretty
tough day and  beat me easily in the end.

Lingfield and Kempton today. I have decided
to make Lingfield the main meeting and give it
most attention. All the main previews are there
but just a few quick Kempton words first.

K  E  M  P  T  O  N

KEMPTON 12.55 Maiden Stakes
(CLASS 5) (4yo+) 1m2f

11/4 Major Lawrence, 3/1 Freedom Fire, 3/1 Jan Mayen
4/1 Mutajaaser, 12/1 Boogie Dancer, 25/1 Gheed
33/1 Our Jane, 33/1 Sir Tom, 33/1 Whiterocks.

The Maiden interests me at 12.55. I am hoping that we
have a huge gamble on Mark Johnston’s JAN MAYEN
and she ends up a short price. That way there will be a
better price about something else. This is interesting

* January-Febuary-March there are 766 3yo + maidens
* Thats 766 Maidens at any distance during 3 months
* I looked at Unraced 4 year old Fillies
* In 766 races they have a 0-135 record

That makes me want to oppose JAN MAYEN but as is
often with a good stat the alternatives often bring there
own confusion. As an example FREEDOM FIRE has just
tailed off over hurdles and I wouldnt have a clue how it
will affect him. I certainly couldnt bet him. I dont like any of the outsiders either so it looks like I have two options.


MAJOR LAWRENCE is frustrating and has had problems
and is certainly unsafe but he does have the ability to win
and a visor and / or a small step up in trip could easily be the things he needs to win. He could also flatter to decieve again. The other option is MUTAJAASER. I am listening to my stats that tells me 5 year olds with 1-2 career runs are  0-33 but I’m ignoring it as only 9 started under 10/1 and six of these nine horses aged 5 finished 2nd or 3rd and that’s telling me has has chances. MUTAJAASER had excuses on his debut when playing up in the stalls and he didnt run badly last time when 5th in a maiden only caught late and just behind a horse called Levitation who then came out and beat MAJOR LAWRENCE easily so on that run you would give MUTAJAASER every chance. I think it is a race to bet both horses and I could go this way round.

Saver Bet – MUTAJAASER  6/1

* Additional Suggestions
* I like MUTAJAASER in a match bet with Freedom Fire
* I like MAJOR LAWRENCE in a match bet with Jan Mayen


9/4 Goodbye Cash, 5/2 Fly By Nelly, 5/1 Lucky Score,
5/1 Support Fund, 11/2 Chatanoogachoochoo,
20/1 Safaseef, 66/1 Sunshine Ellie, 100/1 Intimar.

In the 2.25pm Handicap I quite like SUPPORT FUND.
If 8 run each way but if less than 8 run a win bet. It’s
interesting that as a 66 rated horse he only has to beat
a 0-60 rated field and he has form in much better class
than that. You have two no hopers in INTIMAR and
SUNSHINE ELLIE. I see SAFASEEF as vulnerable and
outclassed up in trip. All horses from Maidens in these
races struggled. None came from 7f as LUCKY SCORE
or from 12f like CHATANOOGACHOOCHOO does and
I think the top 3 in he weights will dominate. If you look
at every fillies handicap between January and March at
any distance in any class and look at horses beaten 10
or more lengths in maidens you find a 0-49 record and
CHATANOOGACHOOCHOO has that to overcome.  I
like FLY BY NELLY but she has no backclass. I also like
GOODBYE CASH who has a good profile and is the right
favourite. I think SUPPORT FUND has much better form
behind her and although on turf I dont see why she cant
win here and in this class I think 5/1 is a good price.

The 2.55pm at Kempton is a 6f sprint. I would have gone
with TIDDLIWINKS with a recent win behind him but I
dont see him as a brilliant price and if I was betting in a
race like this I would have him in an Each Way Double
rather than a win bet and Septemberintherain (1.05pm)
at Lingfield looks the best horse to stick him with,

The only other race that interested me was the 3.55pm a
3yo handicap. I went through every runners and found
faults with all of them. None were ideal in profiles so with something having to win I have set the bar too high so I have to go with something with a visable flaw. I would
risk EXCEED POWER. She has been handicapped at 5f
and her trainer has stated she has never ran on the track
as well as she has worked. The 80 day absence could be
a blessing in disguise. If her problems have been sorted
and they have got to the bottom of her problems then it
is a ridiculously low handicap mark she has much as she
is no more than a guess in a race I liked nothing in.
