Review of yesterday’s Racing Selections
What a great couple of selections and we almost had a cracking 20pt+ win double! PRINCE SEIGFREID went to the front 2-furlongs out with the intent of blunting the speed of only danger Stotsfold, but despite battling all the way to the line and only losing the lead inside the final 100 yards, he went down by half-a-length.

But our FAVOURITE GIRL made up for that leading all the way to the line to hold on by just a head and win. Subject of some considerable market support, she was the 5/2 fav having been advised on the blog when at 4/1. So, overall a 2.80pts profit on the day from 4pts staked.

Today’s Racing Selections

There is some tremendous racing today and the Eclipse at Sandown can go to the fav TWICE OVER. He was the blog selection at Royal Ascot and but for being held back at the start of his run he may well have won. He is the only 10f, Group 1 horse in the race and current odds of 2/1 look fair. He was 9/4 earlier this morning and could well start the 7/4 fav. Only worry is the lack of pace in the race but TWICE OVER has the best turn-of-foot here. The rest of the Sandown card is absolute top-class and very competitive.

There may be some easier pickings about today with all the quality racing and, at Beverley, Sir Michael Stoute sends just Cabal for the 4:25. However, the form of his win LTO has not held up and I’m more taken by Swinbank’s I’M SUPER TOO who seems to have got the hang of racing now and today’s going and trip will suit. Also, he’s from a decent family and he could have a fair bit more improvement to come. Currently 9/2 (with William Hill) he looks good value as Cabal is not an 11/8 chance.

Finally, Saeed Bin Suroor sends out just 2 runners today, both at Haydock. On the face of it, both have little chance of winning. However, I think they both will run decent races. I’m going for GLOBAL CITY who won at Haydock on good-to-firm over this 6f trip last June. This race has cut up today with the going getting quicker by the hour which will suit GLOBAL CITY and not the fav Genki. Currently 9/1 (with Stan James) he looks tremendous value.

Sandown 3:10 TWICE OVER, 2pts win @ 2/1
Beverley 4:25 I’M SUPER TOO, 1pt each-way @ 9/2
Haydock 4:35 GLOBAL CITY, 1pt each-way @ 9/1

  1. Hi m8,

    I'm having another crack but this is a test for a month, can you add my blog please?




  2. Ok Rob. What did I say about Suroor's two at Haydock? The first to run ANHAR has just won at 10/1. Honest, I put it up on my draft blog, but then scrubbed it as thought would only be 2nd.

  3. Never in danger, tho' having to go from the front meant he started to feel it in the final 150 yards. That's 4pts in the bag!

  4. Well done, glad your doing well.
