I am not even considering looking at Wincanton for bets, lays or anything else today as they have the word “firm” in their going description and for exactly the same reason as I swerve summer jumping, I’ll be swerving that lot this afternoon.
Just let it happen.
Aintree, on the other hand, is simply brilliant racing.
I have provided two rated races, which have gone out to my 500 Club, Site members and Weekend Club and as we also have 20 To Follow horses running in the 1-40pm and 5-00pm, below we have what is left for previewing.
I do not get involved in Novelty races so the veterans’ race at 2-45pm will not even be on my screens.
2-10 – DOWNLOAD THE APP AT 188BET CONDITIONAL JOCKEYS´ HANDICAP HURDLE (CLASS 3) (4yo+ 0-125) Winner £6,256 14 runners 3m149y Good
Current trainer form, which is important at this time of year, suggests the horse we should be concentrating on are:
SCOOP THE POT
ONE COOL SCORPION
All are representing yards having a strike rate in excess of 20% right now.
Two jockeys in here, Jamie Bargary and Jonathan Moore, are riding seriously well, a 30% and 24% strike rate respectively and they ride horses contained within that list above:
The second named is 1-3 on the ground and 1-1 at Aintree and in a race I’d only punt if I were on course with a pint of Guinness in my hand, GLOBALISATION would be a speculative 20/80.
It is a “no play” race for me personally.
4-25 – MOLSON COORS INTERACTIVE CHASE (A NOVICES´ LIMITED HANDICAP) (CLASS 3) (4yo+ 0-125) Winner £8,123 9 runners 3m210y Good
Working a race such as this, from any angle, is pretty futile to be honest as none has ever raced here before and it’s a track that can see horses being taken right off their feet. One question leads to another and it’s turning into a riddle, the more I look at it.
The only runner in here having won on both the ground as currently described and over this trip, is PAWN STAR.
A winner of two of his last three starts and not yet out of the first three in steeplechases, his credentials are the best on show.
But then we have a McCain trained runner, what happens now, who has won three ‘chases on the bounce and is 2-3 on the ground. Never yet tried this trip, nor track. How will he go this afternoon?
If I am relying on guesswork regarding opponents, to provide you with a bet, then that would be irresponsible of me and I’ll not do it.
Let’s just keep the profits made from this section dry and look towards adding to them tomorrow.
Have a great day
