Hello and welcome to a new month on arseonlinetips. Last month was a fantastic month, record breaking month too, but we tend not to look back but forward. On Sunday, we released another Rising Stars Interview, with Jonathan Fisher. Jonathan is an Apprentice with Robert Cowell, please do check out his interview and we are also delighted to announce that we will be publishing our FIRST Trainer interview on Monday evening, so keep your eye out for that folks. But as always, we need to tidy up the results from Saturday before you get the selection’s from us with the closing Final Word. Sadly NO Peoples Nap, due to odd’s being against us, although Rich will have a Nap…. But like I said Housekeeping…
Peoples Nap Result(Saturday) – Vazirabad -WON and won the Dubai Gold Cup for the 3rd time in a row whilst breaking the course record, which is some achievement. Other Choices – Mendelssohn WON by as far as he liked & Blue Point also WON. So 3 wins from 3 Choices & a good day…. Now over to Charlie for his Housekeeping…..
Charlie’s Saturday Results –
Cloth of Stars – 3rd
Pistol Park – Runner Up
Fake News – Non Runner
Rich’s Nap –
Fairyhouse – 2.45 – Novice Hurdle – Grade 2 Class 1 – 2m
Getabird – Very disappointing at Cheltenham last month in the Supreme Hurdle but is two from two at this course. Winning the Moscow Flyer over C/D back on January 13th by 9 lengths from Megali Khan. Getabird is the top rated horse in the race and with Willie Mullins winning this race 5 times since 2009, if returning to form, should take all the beating – 11/8
Charlie will now take you through his Monday Movers and I will see you for Final Word….
Sadly due to racing being abandoned on all the UK National Hunt course’s Charlie has no Selections today….
Final Word –
What a weekend for the Peoples Nap, with both choices picked by the public winning and then to top it off, all of the other 4 choices over the two day’s also won. Truly fantastic and a really nice way to end the month. The Peoples Nap will return soon, so keep yours eye’s peeled!
Anyhow let’s get back to today and head to Wolverhampton…. Where one I’ve mentioned on her last two starts is racing at 1.00 Reine Des Miracles for Jonjo O’Neill. Having run the 5YO Poet’s Voice Mare over 7F on AW debut finishing 3rd and 1m 110y, finishing 4th by some 17 lengths on March 10th. He now drops her back to 6f, which is interesting as she was run over 2m+ in the NH Hurdle’s sphere. I will be watching closely…
Now we head back to Fairyhouse, where at 3.50 Jezki, will step up to 2m 4f in the Irish Strawberry Hurdle. The multiple Grade 1 winner, was a last time out winner on Classic Trials day back on March 9th, winning by 2 lengths with the runner up since winning. Having missed Cheltenham he is a touch fresher than a few of his rivals and can go well…. While Un De Sceaux(4.25) has only once in his career gone two races without winning and that was at the hand’s on Sprinter Sacre in 2016, so hopefully he can put the Ryanair defeat behind him and get back to winning ways…..
In a bit of a change, we head over to France, well Saint-Cloud to be exact. They have a Group 3, 1m contest at 2.45 and one that caught my attention was Marie D’Argent, who is unbeaten this season and won a listed race at Cagnes Sur-Mer on February 17th by 1 & 1/2 lengths, the runner up has since won as has 3rd and 4th, who was Lingfield winner Lucky Team….
And finally, another at Saint-Cloud that caught my eye was Heroine(3.25) who runs in a Listed 1m 2f race. She is the daughter of Camelot and is two from two this season after winning on February 17th at Cagnes Sur-Mer by 1 length… (Sadly no odds available for the two French runners, despite a British runner in the Group 3 race)
That is your lot today folks. Thank you all for your support, it has been incredible. Best of Luck in the Irish Grand National and we hope our Stat’s page has helped you narrow down the field and find the winner. Keep an eye out for our Exclusive Trainer Interview on Monday Evening too….
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
