You have had a lack of free rated races recently and that has been solely down to those rains. I have been advising ur subscribed members they should be waiting for the weather to dry up and that comment very much applies to anyone that enjoys betting on horse racing.
As many of you will know my mantra is, “give me the ground, I’ll give you the winners”.
I have a race today I will be getting involved in and I believe you might fancy it, too.

NOTES: This race has been the plan for my top rated for a fair old while now. Everything is absolutely spot on for this horse….won on his only other visit to York, is 2-3 at the trip and 2-3 on the genuine good ground. If his trainer has him fit and firing then he’s going to take a heck of a lot of beating here.
ABSEIL is an enigma. Very highly rated at home he has proven to be a morning glory so far but, he’s rating highly based on all criteria and first time out might be the time to be with him.
I am going to have a decent 20/80 my top rated work with my top three for dutching and exotics but it really is all about my top rated horse.
Best of luck if you get involved
