This is the 310th edition of the Wayward Lad blog.
I posted just one selection yesterday on Betting League, CHARLIE COOL, and what an easy winner it was. This is what I wrote on there;
“Has been knocking on the door recently without success, but runs off OR86 which is a drop of 2lb and is clear top-rated on official handicap ratings. This trip should suit as will going - let's hope the pace is not muddling. Extraterrestrial is not an odds-on shot given poor form at York (080007) and that a mile is his limit. For me, 11/4 with Paddy Power is a gift.”
CHARLIE COOL was a 2pt win bet at advised odds of 11/4, and he had an SP of 2/1.
Today is probably the best day of flat racing in the entire season with 3 absolute cracking meetings at Ascot, York and Newmarket, plus a host of other meetings. I will repeat the advice I gave earlier in the week and that is on these busy summer days of racing, the first thing I do of a morning is go thru’ every card and highlight those trainers with only 1 runner at that meeting. Then I highlight those with only 1 runner on the day and give them my attention. Is the trainer a rare visitor to the track? Does the trainer have a high strikerate? Is the trainer particularly successful with a type or age of horse at that track? Has there been a particular jockey booked? And finally, is the horse one of the 1st-3 in the RP betting forecast? Sometimes there is no particular reason for a market drift on-course other than the stable are not one that likes a wager.
Please check Betting League (http://www.bettingleague.co.uk/) after 12-noon today to see what my selections are for today – it’s free.
