Today’s Ratings and Advice 30/07/14

am afraid it’s again going to have to be two Newsletters agin today, the second one will probably go out early afternoon and contain the three races for this evening.

I have to be at Oaklea Stables this morning to discuss The Jury Syndicate with Paul Green and pencil in some dates for a day over there for those that have expressed a definite interest. So far we have seven people already members of Post Racing looking to get involved and as the 500 Club will also have a share we need just four more people to put up their hands before we go shopping in October.

I got a nice e-mail last night from Jerry…

“Ron, just want to thank you for the symbols you are putting next to horses names as i had a small e.w. bet on Inexile in the last race at Goodwood only because it had three was pretty high up on your ratings. Have you yourself noticed how many horse that have travelled to the races a good distance are winning?”

Thanks, Jerry….yes, I have but it is still something I am monitoring right now as it is only in recent months I have done this. The guy that asked me to do it actually receives just the free newsletter at the moment so he will have missed that, if it is something he himself is following.

I have to confess I did see Inexile well drawn, good to go on the ground and having travelled a fair old way but I couldn’t have backed a horse on a 20 run losing streak, that had been beaten at odds on in a Claimer not so long back. Funny old game, this betting lark.

GOODWOOD 1-55

* – STOPPED OUT….-35
BALLINDERRY BOY….-36
LONGSHADOW….-40

MY PLAY – I myself will not be betting this race but i know a few are going racing today so I’ll again cover those races I’d usually swerve….this one because in reality, we have no idea which will or will not, stay.

GOODWOOD 4-50

§* – HIKING….+10
* – WATER HOLE….+9
§* – RUNNING DEER….+8
* – AUCTION….+8

UCHENNA….-15
* – PRINCIPLE EQUATION….-20
* – SANDRA’S DIAMOND….-23
§ – SALTWATER CREEK….-26
§ – PALERMA….-27
PATTERNED….-30

MY PLAY – 12 of this field are 3-y-o’s, some still wholly unexposed, including my top rated. It is another race I’d rather watch than bet in because of that. However, I have spent time working on it so I’ll play my top three to October rules.

THREE TO DUTCH – HIKING, WATER HOLE, RUNNING DEER
20/80 – HIKING
EXOTICS – HIKING, WATER HOLE, RUNNING DEER
LAY – NONE

GOODWOOD 5-25

§* – LULU THE ZULU….+8
§* – RELATED….+8
* – LITTLE SHAMBLES….+8

* – STONEFIELD FLYER….-15
KAKATOSI….-17
VALAIS GIRL….-20
ACCESSION….-20
LIBERTY JACK….-21
§ – ENGLISHMAN….-23

MY PLAY – Top one with rated horses 3 & 4 for me personally. Ultra competitive, as you would expect and hopefully the numbers are right and I get that luck in running I’ll need.

THREE TO DUTCH – BRAVO ECHO, LULU THE ZULU, RELATED
20/80 – LULU THE ZULU
EXOTICS – BRAVO ECHO, LULU THE ZULU, RELATED
LAY – NONE

REDCAR 3-50

* – LORD FRANKLIN….-8
* – ENZAAL….-10
MIGHTY MISSILE….-17
* – JAN DE HEIM….-25
POWER UP….-32
QUEST THE COLOUR….-36
KEEP TO THE BEAT….-40
PROPHESY….-40
GIOVANNI JACK….-40
THE FIRM….-40

MY PLAY – I’m just looking to rated horses 1, 2 and 4 as, right now, they are the only horses in here having won previously on the going as currently described. I’ll be dutching, going 20/80 my top one and looking at those exotics.

REDCAR 5-00

T§ – ALMANACK….+9
* – RED CAPE….+9
* – SUNNY SIDE UP….+4
* – CHOC ‘A’ MOCA….+2
§ – SHILLITO….-11
T – STROLL ON….-16
* – PENINA….-18
SPINNER LANE….-24
RED SHADOW….-31
§ – SPOKEN WORDS….-38
GRACEFUL ACT….-39
§ – WOLFWOOD….-40
§ – PATRON OF EXPLORES….-40
SPOWARTICUS….-40
T – FOXTROT PEARL….-40

MY PLAY – This doesn’t appeal. My 2nd and 3rd highest rated horses are, if I’m seeing straight, poorly drawn. the vast majority of those well drawn though look hampered by a distinct lack of ability. I’ll play rated horses 2, 3 and 4 to October Rules levels of staking with my 20/80 going to CHOC ‘A’ MOCA, who is drawn best of the three.

REDCAR 5-35

§* – A J COOK….+3
SINGING STAR….+/-0
§ – SECRET APPLAUSE….-5
§ – BAPAK MUDA….-16
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE….-19
HERE NOW AND WHY….-24
§ – WIMBOLDSLEY….-25
EMILY DAVIDSON….-30
BONNIE CHARLIE….-33
SILVER LIGHTENING….-33
§ – TELL ME WHEN….-37
SHOWTIME STAR….-40
ROSIE HALL….-40
PINK CADILLAC….-40

MY PLAY – Only my top rated has winning form on this ground right now and it’s another low staking, October Rules affair…those three in my top four seen as being best drawn.

I’ll be back later with those three for this evening plus a report on what we’ll be doing at Oaklea in the very near future.

Have a great day and the best of luck!

Kindest regards

Ron
