Today’s Ratings and Advice 26/03/14

We were due a blank one and, it arrived.

CHEPSTOW 4-10

BOB KEOWN….+12 – 2ND 11/8
RAY DIAMOND….-1
*BUCKTHORN TOM….-7
*KING HELLISIO….-14
*THUNDERING HOME….-15
*PILGREEN….-18 – WON 13/2
MIDNIGHT REQUEST….-21
MISTER SNOWBALL….-27
SWITCHED OFF….-33
NICKY NUTJOB….-40
STERLING GENT….-40
LOOK FOR LOVE….-40
LITTLEDEAN JIMMY….-40

ADVICE – My top rated looks home and hosed on figures and, if he improves for first time blinkers and handles the softer ground he probably wins. If I opt to get involved it’ll be those three down a bit marked *…to October Rules and only because I spent time working on this race.

RESULT – They certainly had that ease in the going at both tracks and my top rated didn’t quite handle it as well as he does the quicker stuff, which probably cost him….and those playing that horse, the race. It had to be the fourth one down marked * that went and did him though, didn’t it! A losing race for us all, me thinks!

FONTWELL 2-40

*VENETIAN LAD….+5 – 2ND 8/1 > 13/2
DYNAMIC IDOL….-6
*TUSKAR ROCK….-7
RED ANCHOR….-10
KELTIC RHYTHM….-22
RIVERMOUTH….-31
AUTUMN DAY….-40

ADVICE – I’ll just have a 2080 my top one and an exotic with Tuskar Rock.

RESULT – My top one ran a cracker for me and I pocket a small profit from this one but it won’t cover lunch today, that’s for sure. yet another top rated horse running up second….how many now this month?

FONTWELL 4-55

RED ROCK….+11
ASIAN PRINCE….-3
BENNY THE SWINGER….-7
*MOULIN DE LA CROIX….-14 – 3RD 12/1
WEST BAY HOOLIE….-15
*MORESTEAD….-16 – 2ND 14/1
SABLAZO….-21
WICKLEWOOD….-32
MALIBU SUN….-35
PETIT ECUYER….-40
MEIRIG’S DREAM….-40

ADVICE – I’ll have my top one with that pair marked *…dutched, a 20/80 MOULIN DE LA CROIX and teedly exotics.

RESULT – The pair marked * in my top six ran as well as they possibly could have been expected to and my top rated duly ran as one not marked * would probably be expected to. Just one of those races…and those days.

Today it’s just Exeter and I’m not complaining. I am currently buried deep in my books looking for those clues that’ll help us through the summer months and it’s most certainly plate spinning time again. I start prepping for the podcast today too so, a busy one at this end.

*INDICATES HORSES HAVING WON PREVIOUSLY ON THE GOING AS CURRENTLY DESCRIBED ABOVE

EXTER 2-40

*URCALIN….+14
PASTURE BAY….+11
*HENRYVILLE….+8
*GOLDEN GAEL….+8
DRAGON’S DEN….+8
*HOLLOW PENNY….-4
HERE’S HERBIE….-4
SUNWILD FIRE….-9
QUICK DECISSON….-16
*AGINCOURT REEF….-21
QUADDICK LAKE….-28
JACKIE’S SOLITAIRE….-29
FOND MEMORY….-35
DECOY….-40
ANGLES HILL….-40
GRAND GOLD….-40
PHOENIX FLIGHT….-40
PHONE HOME….-40

ADVICE – I will not be heavily involved in any of the three rated races today and, in fact, if my staking exceeds October Rules it’ll be down to my pressing the wrong buttons. Here its rated horse 1, 3 and 4 getting a dutch for starters and I’ll see what happens once I’ve sorted out my potential returns.

EXTER 3-40

KNOCKRAHEEN….+13
*ROBIN WILL….+12
RIO MILAN….+12
NODEBATEABOUTIT….-5
MISS SAFFRON….-10
*FAITH KEEPER….-13
*SUSQEHANA RIVER….-20
PISTOL….-21
OFF THE WALL….-26

ADVICE – This is sitting as comfortably with me as an ingrowing toe nail. The one winking at me is my fourth highest rated but he’ll not be in a play at this end. I’ll work with rated horses 1, 2 and 6 but only to coppers.

EXETER 4-10

NIGHT OF PASSION….-13
CLOUDS OF MIST….-22
ADMIRAL BLAKE….-22
RUGGED JACK….-30
LA BELLE SAUVAGE….-37
LEMONS GROUND….-40
BRANTINGHAM BREEZE….-40
MINELLA GATHERING….-40
PERTINENT….-40
WESTERLY BREEZE….-40
LITTLE EAGLET….-40
TRACKING TIME….-40

ADVICE – Not a single one of these has won before on the going as currently described, over timber. Lemons Ground has won an NHF race on it but they do not count in my eyes so, what are you going to do with this one? I will play my top three to those October Rules and light candles.

Have a brilliant day and the very best of luck.

Kindest regards

Ron
