Today’s Ratings and Advice 04/07/15

Ron RobinsonDue to the sheer volume of racing today I have just (09:52am), put down the last rated race below….it’s bonkers out there today!

I have not, as yet, added text to any race but will endeavour to do so, even if it just the evening meetings.

I asked a question on Facebook a couple of days ago:

“Which is the most exciting race this weekend?
The Coral Eclipse, a five runner race which offers £255,195.00 to the winner or….
The Old Newton Cup, a 19 runner race which offers £62,250.00
I know which I’m most looking forward to!”

For me personally it’s a no brainer. Given the choice of watching a five runner farce that offers up over a quarter of a million pounds to the winner or, a big field handicap with the conundrum it offers a pittance by comparison, I’m watching the latter race….and betting on it.

I’m not remotely interested in the Eclipse to be quite honest. I’ll be more interested in the Arc de Triomphe because that will be competitive.

Did you know the horse that finishes last in the Eclipse will take home just over £3k less than the combined prize money of the 3rd, 4th and 5th placed horses in the Old Newton Cup?

That is what is wrong with racing today.

I would strongly suggest it is easier to finish last in that Group 1, than it is to finish 3rd, 4th or 5th in that handicap!

TODAY

Ultra busy, as you would expect so, lets just crack straight on.
