For England & St George
We have 7 meetings to choose from today, so I’ll not waste time listing them all.
At Sandown, the Celebration Chase over 2-mile has cut-up and only 6 go to post. The fav is Tataniano, and if you believe the hype then he’s a good thing. I never believe hype, especially about a horse that’s 11/10 and hasn’t run since November (160 days ago). He will love this going, but then so will FRENCH OPERA and if he is able to repeat his recent form that should be good enough, especially as he’s in receipt of 4lb. Odds of 100/30 look good to me. The feature race at Sandown is the Bet365 Gold Cup and one from my alert list runs – Gentle Ranger. The Alert List is closed now the National has been run, so this won’t count (won or lose), but he looks the ideal type for this race. One that catches my eye is POKER DE SIVOLA who has been prepared for a “spring” campaign and can handle this quicker going. HE was well fancied last week for the Scottish National off a 6lb higher mark, and he gets on well with Timmy Murphy. But, there’s no wager from me in this race. The rest of the card looks a feast of racing, but it’s one I’ll be watching rather than wagering on.
There is a great meeting at Haydock, and the racing there looks competitive. If I were going, I would spend some time on it, but haven’t got that luxury today.
There’s a good meeting at Musselburgh, and I’m taken by the class 2 h’cap over 1m1f at 3:05. I’m a bird-in-the-hand man when it comes to 3yo’s at this time of year, and as such CALYPSO MAGIC jumps out at me at 13/2 (Ladbrokes) being a C&D winner LTO just 22-days ago. All the others have to prove they have trained on.
The sunny weather has turned the going to good-to-firm at Carlisle and the races have cut-up badly.
Sandown 2:35, FRENCH OPERA, ½pt win @ 100/30 (Stan James)
Musselburgh 3:05, CALYPSO MAGIC, ½pt win @ 13/2 (Ladbrokes, best odds guaranteed)
Total = 1pt staked
