Bank Holiday Monday… Plenty of racing to get stuck into….. So lets get started!
Welcome to arseonlinetips Bank Holiday Monday edition, unlike the other publications, we only give you what we think you will want, not everything that is running… also we do not have any photoshop pictures of our slips or Trackers unlike other sites that have affiliate links…. We don’t have them either. We are 100% Independent!
Charlie is back today, Rich has a Nap for you and also his Final Word, so let’s get down to business…..
Competition -Was a maiden on the flat and made a decent start to hurdling career when a fair 2nd at Market Rasen in August last year over 2m 1f,has changed yards and new connections have given him a wind op, if the op was successful could easily go one better today and gain that elusive first win.
Qaswarah -Won at Chepstow in May on handicap debut over 1m 2f has an extra 4lb to carry and goes up in trip to 1m 3f 179y today, if handling the penalty and trip could easily go in again as sire Nayef won over 1m 4f. This is a bit of a risk with main danger being Burgonet from the inform M Johnston yard.
Salix -Has been running well in races over 2m finishing 4th the last twice at Kempton and Towcester, this suggests that today’s trip of 2m 4f 145y is within grasp and is taken to gain first victory since winning at Pornichet in November last year.
Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now pass you over to Rich for His Nap and Final Word.
Rich’s Nap – Windsor – 5.25 Handicap Class 3 – 1m 2f
Mordin – Beaten a neck in a Class 3 Ripon 1m 2f handicap last time out after landing a Yarmouth 1m 2f Class 4 handicap by 1 & 1/2 lengths from Voi (Who has since won, as has the 4th) He is a progressive type and has the best form in the race – 6/4
Rich’s Final Word –
Yesterday was a great if you followed my thoughts from Longchamp, with Laurens & Vazirabad winning and English raider Almodovar finishing 2nd. That was yesterday and we move onto today…..
Some cracking horses out tomorrow and none more so than at Leicester.
John Gosden sends two really nice 3 year old’s for the 3.30 Novice Stakes, both are stepping up in trip from 1m 2f to 1m 3f. He sends Photographer, ridden by Frankie Dettori(Stable first choice) who he gave me as a horse to follow and the New Approach colt was runner up at Newcastle last time out & makes Turf debut. The other is Raa Atoll, a Sea the Stars colt who on nicely last time out at Nottingham over 1m 2f by 1 & 1/2 lengths. Both step up in trip.
After finishing runner up on her first two runs Burgonet(4.05) landed a Newmarket 1m 2f class 4 maiden by 1/2 a length and makes handicap debut from an opening mark of 80, with usual improvement on the cards this mark may underestimate the Helmet Filly…..
With my Nap coming from Windsor, I thought I would share the rest of what I found…. Seductive Moment(3.05) makes his race course debut, the Shamardel colt out of Sexy Lady(Danehill Dancer) runs in the Class 5 6f Novice Stakes. He is half brother to Showtime & Salamati and his trainer Mark Johnston has a 27% SR with his 2 year olds in 2018
Another of Mark Johnston’s is Lake Volta(4.50) who has been placed in Group 3 & Listed races. Has finished runner up in his last two starts, including to Corinthia Knoght and last time out in a 5f Class 2 handicap, beaten by a short head. Now runs for the 4th time off his mark of 97 in this class 2 5f handicap!
And finally in the opening race at Chelmsford on the AW, we see another who has been runner up on two occasions. The Last Party(2.05) makes AW debut after being 2nd on both turf starts, beaten by a neck and short head respectively. Surely the Hellvelyn Filly goes in for trainer Chris Dwyer to land the Class 5 6f Novice Stakes????
We are pleased to publish another instalment of Rising Stars featuring Eoin Walsh, available on site and through Rich’s pinned tweet(FunkyTips) on twitter!
