Today’s Ratings and Advice 05/10/14

Ron RobinsonToday is all about what is happening over in France but below you have a plethora of “sighters” to look at from the three NH meetings taking place at Kelso, Huntingdon and Uttoxeter.

I had a Roger Moore “eyebrow” moment when working on the Uttoxeter 3-20. My fourth highest rated, Chill Factor, won over CD just over three weeks ago, is 2-2 on the ground it will face this afternoon and the trip would appear to be right up it’s street as the record of 2-3 would indicate. Fitness more than anything counts for a bundle at this point in time and Mr Honeyball will not have opted to send it on another round trip of 350 miles if he didn’t fancy he had a chance of winning.

Good little race, that one.

I have, as promised, looked at the racing from Longchamp for those members over there this weekend but honestly, if you look at some of those results yesterday you just know winner finding is akin to whistling into the wind.

1-00….we all know SOLE POWER is the best sprinter on the planet right now and he should win the Abbaye but you want a double figure draw in this like you need a hole in the head. I hope the favourite wins it because I’m a fan of the horse but if I was betting on the race I might just go 20/80 MOVIESTA.

1-35….the only thing I know for sure is a 2-y-o filly, carrying 8st 11lb, will win. Again I’d prefer a low draw and with a French trained horse having won five of the last seven I’d probably have a small 20/80 PINK ROSE if someone put a gun to my head.

2-10….no hesitation is suggesting a straight win GLENEAGLES. He has looked awesome this season. THE WOW SIGNAL did us all a good turn at Royal Ascot but I just think the O’Brien horse is a class act.

2-45….3-y-o’s have the best record in this and i’m confident TARFASHA is the best of those.

3-30….I suggested a 20/80 AVENIR CERTAIN in the podcast and having been given stall 1 I am in no mood to change my mind. DOLNIYA has also been given a nice stall to work from and that’s another to consider. All the “better” horses seem to have been given work to do from high draws and I’ll probably not have an investment in this….more for watching.

4-15….I wouldn’t know where to begin!

4-50….stalls 6, 7 and 8 have produced the winner of five of the last nine of these so a dutch GARSWOOD, ANSGAR and FIESOLANA might get you a profit….see what I’m reduced to!….GARSWOOD 20/80 if you fancy a solo play.

5-20….not a fan of staying races to be honest but PALE MIMOSA should take some beating.

5-50…a French Handicap….your on your own!

ASSUMPTIONS:
