Hello and welcome to arseonlinetips…. Sunday Edition! A 100% independent racing blog brought to you by 2 racing enthusiast’s from either end of the UK. Charlie hails from Glasgow, while Rich is from the Isle of Wight….
The Tin Man landed Charlie a tidy 11/1 winner yesterday… Advised EW…. Boom!
A standard blog, with Charlie’s Sunday selection’s while Rich will have the final word…..
Francis Xavier -Won at the 3rd time of asking for Hugo Palmer back in November last year at Newcastle over 1m. Then won again at Doncaster over 1m 2f in June this year before being sold for 22,000 Guinea’s, makes debut for new trainer Kevin Frost who’s yard are doing well at the moment and can get involved here at a nice price.
Skint -Was 2nd at Southwell over 2m 4f back in March this year in a Class 5 Chase. Was then sent to Huntingdon to race over 2m 4f in a Class 5 Chase and won . Was then sent to Fontwell to race over 2m 2f in another Class 5 Chase and won again beating Hear I Am by 2 and 1/2 lengths. Although is now 8lb heavier has had a break and has won after having a break before and another bold display looks likely here.
Turban -Won last time out at Fontwell over 2m 3f in August this year. Has been raised 6lb for that victory and goes back up in trip to 2m 5f 135y. If handling the extra yardage could go In again in a race where most have questions to answer.
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 hand you back over to Rich for The Final Word.
Rich’s Final Word –
Cheers Charlie, I think I know where to start…
Wow, Enable…. Class absolute class, returns and does that far too easily and dropped from 5/1 into 2/1 for the Arc. As for my thought’s, I have no idea, I guess the rain and the lay off’s did for my thought’s but as I say, that is racing…
I have 1 from York and the rest from a rammed card at Longchamp in France….
2.55 Garrowby Stakes Class 1 Listed 6f…
Limato was out of sorts prior to his last run when dropping back from running over 7f & 1m. Back to 6f, it took a run, but he landed the Listed Hopeful Stakes at Newmarket and his form over 6f on turf reads 1/1/1/2/2/1/3/2/11/1 and is the one to beat…. The Danger could come from duel Listed winner Kimbrella, who was a Chester 6f Listed winner last time out!
2.15 Handicap 1m 2f…..
Mixed Mind is a former 2m 1f hurdler, who had 2 starts in the NH sphere back in 2016, finishing 3rd & 7th. Back on the flat turf and has won both starts since June, winning here over C/D in June and then following it up with a 1 & 3/4 length victory over 1m 2f at Chantilly on July 9th, has had a break since…..

That form has been boosted by Expert Eye, landing the City of York(G3), 3rd Lord Glitters has won the Strensall Stakes(G3) at York, while 5th Beat the Bank has landed the Mile Stakes(G2) at Goodwood….
3.55 Des Chenes Group 3 2YO Only 1m…..
Court Poet is a Dubawi colt, trained by Charlie Appleby. He made his race course debut on September 1st at Chelmsford. Made a winning start in the C4 novice stakes by 3/4’s of a length and should improve for the run….
4.25 Gladiateur Stakes Group 3 1m 7f 90y
Game Starter has risen through the handicap ranks, rising from winning a Class 4 1m maiden, a C3 1m 2f handicap and a C2 1m 4f handicap last season. Made seasonal return at Windsor in a C1 listed contest finishing a 1 & 3/4 length runner up over 1m 3f. Up in trip & wears first time blinkers….
