Today’s Ratings and Advice 24/08/13

I’m sitting here right now looking at the skies through my office window (I swear I just heard a distant rumble of thunder), I have checked the forecasts for all areas hosting racing today and having done so, have decided already that I myself will not be betting today. It is going to be chucking it down everywhere and quite frankly, as was the case yesterday, my figures will scarcely be worth the paper they were written on. It’s galling I know, but what’s the point is guessing when money is at stake?

The best advice I can give today is watch the first two or three races from each track, get a handle on going conditions and then simply look at the respective form of those still left in (brace yourselves for a host of non-runners today), and join the queue to punt them, because everyone will be doing exactly the same thing.

The only race of any interest to me personally today is the Ebor. I firmly believe I found the winner of this race on Wednesday, got on @ 26, advised everyone during the podcast of the name of the horse but now those rains have come…and are still coming….and I’m thinking I’ve possibly left some cash in the layers satchels.

You can now get no better than 13 about my selection because Tom Segal, Pricewise in the Racing Post, must have tuned in to the podcast and has tipped it up as his headline bet today.

All I can tell you is, the last time this horse was entered up and it turned soft, he was pulled out.

This rain was not expected and trainers pulled easy ground horses out at the 48 hour decs stage….they must be gutted now!

So, the ball, I’m afraid, is very much in your court. I have opted not to post up any assumptions regarding going conditions because they will be changing as you read this. I have opted not to mark up horses perceived as being well drawn or suited by conditions because again, both will be affected by changing ground and non-runners. The decision to bet will be yours alone and for what they are worth, here are the figures:

No OF INTEREST or novelty bets today.

I’ve just heard they hold an inspection at Redcar at noon….do you really want to be backing horses today?

Best of luck if you do get involved

Kindest regards

Ron
