Tuesday 30th April


3.40 Youcannotbeserious 11-4

4.20 Klassical Dream 8-11

This should go to Klassical Dream and based on his demolition job in the Supreme he is very hard to oppose. He was superb at Cheltenham and jumped brilliantly throughout. If he is in the same form then it will take a good one to beat him. His stablemate Quick Grabim hasn’t run since winning for us in the Grade 1 Royal Bond last December . He comes here as a relatively fresh horse after recovering from a stress fracture sustained back in January. He might need the run but i wouldn’t put anyone off having a few quid each way on him at 8’s as he could be a live danger. Felix Desyj won the Top Novice Hurdle at Aintree when just holding on from Aramon. Both were well beaten by Klassical Dream and I can’t see them reversing the form. 

4.55  Jan Maat 14-1 ( 4 places with bookies)

5.30 Min 8-13 and double with Klassical Dream

Min should win this race if he jumps like he did at Aintree.  It’s a 2 horse race with Un De Sceaux who comes back to defend his crown. He had a good rest since Cheltenham where he ran below par in the Ryanair. I still think he is at his very best over the minimum trip and is a major player in race. For those who don’t like taking odds on then UDS in the w/o is the way to go.

6.40 Getabird 7-1

The form horse in race is Delta Work based on his 3rd in the RSA behind Topofthegame. This was a such a tough race for these horses at Cheltenham and we saw recently at Aintree that Topofthegame wasn’t at his best. I think Delta Work could be in a similar boat. A Plus Tard was very impressive when winning the Close Brothers handicap race at Cheltenham. He receives weight for age allowance which could help him too. This is a step up in grade though and he is stepping up in trip too. I prefer to look for an each way angle in race when I am not totally sure. Getabird is my choice and he comes here as a fresh horse too. He was beaten at Limerick last December in that Grade 1 when Hardline collared him close home. He’s already won three times at the track and will relish the step up in trip. He is the each way angle in race and will give you a good run for your money. Of the others Chriss Dream has a small chance if he is back to the form he showed when he won at Navan two starts ago.

7.15 Farceur Du Large 5-1

Saturday 27th April



2.25 Black Corton 7-2

3.00 This should be straight forward for Altior and a few of us are on him to break Big Bucks record & to remain unbeaten this season. So we will be cheering him on to make history and win his 19th consecutive race. Sceau Royal should follow him home.

3.35 The Young Master 10-1 & West Approach 25-1 (5/6 places with bookies)

4.10 On The Blind Side 5-1

4.40 Molineaux 9-1

5.15 Champagne Court 7-1


E/w Lucky 15 – 2.25 Black Corton 10-3 , 3.35 The Young Master 9-1 , 4.10 On The Blind Side 5-1, 5.15 Champagne Court 7-1 ( @ladbrokes)

* It looks very tricky tomorrow so keep stakes to a minimum and bet e/w or on the place market when necessary. Payday rules apply too 🙂  Big week coming up as from next Tuesday at Punchestown. No need to bet big too. Good luck


Friday 26th April


1.50 Reggae Runner 5-1

2.25 Crystal Ocean is a little bit short in the market. He is form horse in race but he scrambled home in same race last year to beat Fabricate on his seasonal debut. I will have an e/w bet on Trais Fluors instead at 7-1. 

3.00 Bangkok 7-4  Bangkok won his maiden at Doncaster few weeks ago at Doncaster. The 2nd that day Telecaster went on to frank the form when he won impressively at Windsor. The 4th Dubai Instinct also gave the form a boost by winning his maiden at Nottingham. Before that Bangkok finished 4th to Kick On at Newmarket last September and the latter recently won the Fielden Stakes for us at same track. As you can see he has solid form in the book. He is stepping up in class tomorrow though but I am sure SDS will give him a good ride. I have a few quid on him at 3-1 ante post too. The danger could be Technician and he won very nicely at Leicester.  

3.35 Beat The Bank 3-1

4.35 Sparkle Roll 2-1

Monday 22nd April


2.40 Way Back Home 10-1

I think this one is over priced in the market. The top 2 in the betting are the obvious ones since they finished 2nd and 3rd in the Triumph Hurdle behind Pentland Hills. The latter went in again at Aintree by winning the Grade 1 Doom Bar Juvenile Hurdle. I can’t separate the 2 and it will depend on how they have recovered from their Cheltenham exertions. Way Back Home finished 3rd at Punchestown in December in a race won by Gardens of Babylon. He has since won his maiden and a Grade 3 at the track. He travels well and can make the running. He is a fluent jumper too and think he will be in the places at least. He comes here as a fresh horse too compared to the 3 market leaders  and Paul Townend takes the ride too.

4.20 Snow Falcon 11-8

He hasn’t been seen since November when he won the Grade 2 at Down Royal beating the likes of Shattered Love, Monalee and The Storyteller. He comes here a fresh horse and has outstanding claims. Ordinary World is the danger as he has been beaten in Grade 1 races behind the likes of Altior and Min. He is also receiving 6lb from Snow Falcon. The Storyteller has been disappointing since winning the Grade 1 Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown last year. He was pulled up after blundering in the Ryanair last time and he isn’t reliable with his jumping.

5.00 Burrows Saint 9-1 & Roaring Bull 33-1 (Notebook) – ( 6 places with bookies),

6.10 Andy Dufresne 4-5 ( Non Runner)


E/w Trixie – 2.40 Way Back Home 10-1 , 3.15 Getaway John 10-1 , 5.00 Roaring Bull 33-1



Friday 19th April


1.30  Sha La La Lee 14-1 (Tricky race for apprentices )

2.00 Amade evens ( For the each way thieves Spark Plug 9-1 could sneak a place and could be an e/w saver )

2.30 Rasima 11-2

3.05 Kachy evens (Ante Post) – I can’t see this getting beat tomorrow and he has been aimed at this race for months. Despite the draw in 8 he should make a bold bid from the front and it will be a question of how far.

3.40 Pizzicato 9-2

4.15 Wissahickon should win this nicely so can be used in multiples. Matterhorn is 2/2 at Lingfield but was very disappointing in the Magnolia Stakes at Kempton. I think Master of the World is one that could sneak a place with Ryan Moore in the saddle. He ran a nice race behind Mootasadir last time and his Lingfield form is 3-2-1-7-1-2-1-6.

4.45 Oh This Is Us 11-2


Newcastle – 3.20 Newcastle Magic  J 9-2


Lucky 15 – 2.00 Amade evens , 3.05 Kachy 8-11 , 3.20 Magic J 4-1 , 4.45 Oh This Is Us 5-1( @skybet)

* The treble Amade , Kachy and Wissahickon will be very popular tomorrow. Think it will be enhanced as well. Also keep an eye on Adam Kirby who has gone to Bath and has some good chances there tomorrow. Good luck


Wednesday 17th April


1.50 Moyassar 13-2 ( If you did have Qabala as your first bet today in the Nell Gwyn then you have a free bet same stakes in that race on @bet365. It’s a trappy race so if you don’t have a free bet go easy and look out for bookies paying 4 places )

3.00 Brando 6-4  ( His form at Newmarket is 1-1-3-1-2  and he has an even better record when he makes his seasonal debut 1-1-1-1)

3.35 Zakouski 9-4  – Masar won this last year and Charlie Appleby has another potentially good horse in Zakouski. He has been the subject of good reports in last few weeks and has been working well with the likes of Auxerre the Lincoln winner. The form horse though is Royal Marine who won the Group 1 Jean Luc Lagadere at Longchamp last October. The second that day Broome has since franked the form by winning the Ballysax at Leopardstown. We did back Royal Marine at Meydan but his run that day can be forgiven as he didn’t like the dirt surface and Super Soumi took care of him. I have always favoured form over hype but I did back Zakouski 2 days ago ante post so I will stick with him. 

4.10 Ojooba 11-4


Cheltenham – 2.40 Wenyerreadyfreddie 5-1  – Don’t normally bet at Cheltenham in April but this one could be well handicapped and comes here as a fresher horse than most. We can forgive him his bad run on bad ground at Doncaster last December but judged him based on his  form when he won at Ascot where did beat Kildisart ( 4th in the JLT and winner at Aintree) & also the likes of Caid Du Lin and Peppay Le Pugh previously. The return to a left handed track and the quicker ground might suit him. The danger could be Highway One O One who didn’t like softer conditions last March at the festival 


Lucky 15 – 2.40 Wenyerreadyfreddie 5-1 , 3.00 Brando 6-4 , 3.35 Zakouski 9-4 , 4.10 Ojooba 11-4


* Looks trappy tomorrow so don’t go mad with stakes. Don’t give away  all your winnings since we have some good races at Lingfield on Friday. Good luck
