Another week done and dusted as we move into the weekend with some fantastic racing and football to get our teeth into, but before all that let’s get down to Friday’s results :
Smugglers Creek -Was 2nd an therefore a loss.
Mohayyen – Was unplaced and was another loss.
Rinaria – Was unplaced and was yet another loss.
.Well Friday was a poor day by my standards, meaning that the week ended unprofitable, hopefully that will change with Saturday’s horses and football selections.
Peoples Nap Result(Friday) – Second Thought – Unplaced
Yesterday’s PN Choices were simply not good enough, while we have enjoyed a few winners again this week… I must do better…. Here are today’s choices –
Peoples Nap Choices –
Newmarket – Good
2.35- Cambridge Fillies’ Handicap – Class 3 – 1m 4f
Star Rock – C/D winner when last seen in May this year, winning a class 5 maiden by 1/2 a length from God Given, who has won 3 of the 4 races contested since including a Fillies’ Class 1 Listed & a French Group 3 contest in Deauville. Makes handicap debut on return – 4/1
Newbury – Good
2.50 – Mill Reef – Group 2 Class 1 – 2YO Only – 6f
James Garfield – Won a 6f class 5 maiden at Doncaster by 6 lengths prior to stepping up to 7f in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood to finish a 5 & 1/2 length 4th before a nose defeat last time out at York in the Acomb Stakes(Group 3 Class1) last month – 4/1
Wolverhampton(AW) – Standard
7.40 – Novice Stakes – Class 4 – 2YO Only – 1m 142y
Kind Act – 2nd last time out at Chelmsford by 1 & 1/4 lengths to Chilean, who has since won again – 11/10
Over to Charlie for his thoughts for today & I will see you for Final Word –
Before you all start complaining betref have got the time of my 3b race wrong it should be 4.55 not 4.25
Mont Kiara -Won here two starts back over 6f in a Class 3 handicap, was sent to Ascot and raced over an inadequate 5f and finished 4th. Remains on a winning mark and a return to 6f on a track it’s win on before ticks a lot of boxes for me here and another win looks likely.
Je Suis Charlie -Won here last time out by 5length over course and distance. If in same mood here could gain a second win for yard who boast a 50% strike rate at the track in last 5 years.
Magic Moments -Won here last time out in her first go at a sprint, has a good draw again and if using same tactics as last time could be hard to stop her front running mentality.
Saturday’s Football –
Rich’s 4 Fold – Burnley, Man Utd, Preston & Wolves – All to win – 9/1
Burnley – Unbeaten in last 3 v Huddersfield
Man Utd – Unbeaten this season, scoring 12 goals in the process, Lukaku has 5, more than Southampton as a team!
Preston – Flying in Championship, with 15 points already, 2 wins & 1 draw from 3 home games this season, while Millwall are yet to win away
Wolves – Expensive squad who are unbeaten in Championship & Barnsley are yet to win away
Charlie’s Win & BTTS –
Celtic – Have the best record in Scotland against Rangers who they face today. Celtic have beaten Rangers 5-1 on two separate occasions last year and look likely to carry that dominance into today’s game and look primed for the win although Rangers could snatch a goal. Todays play is Celtic win and BTTS at 2-1
Tottenham -Have been freely scoring recently but have defensive issues as well they beat Dortmund 3-1 and then beat Everton 3-0, they face West Ham today and I feel Tottenham win and BTTS is the way to go here at 11-5
RB Leipzig -Are another team who can score goals at will but leave themselves open at the back with their gung-ho approach. They have been unlucky last couple of matches drawing 1-1 and 2-2 with Monaco and Monchengladback. They face Eintracht Frankfurt who have only won twice in last 6 matches. The play here is RB Leipzig win and BTTS at 5-2
.I have played the Win and BTTS treble here and it pays 32.6-1 . I recommend a small stake on this bet, start off with a quid so it doesn’t interfere with your main bets.
While if you are looking for an Anytime Goal scorer bet then looking for teams top scorer is the best way to go: Eg – Kane(Spurs) Lukaku(Man Utd) Messi(Barca) etc
Yes this will be a separate P/L….. Thanks for asking!!!
Rich’s Final Word –
With the AYR meeting abandoned due to a water logged track, I think the Course & BHA need to work together to find out why this has happened, especially with the drainage systems around nowadays. I digress……
Newbury has a nice card & boast’s a couple of maiden’s with Alfarqad(1.15) making his debut, the $1.3 million War Front colt holds a Dewhurst entry next month so connections are expecting a big run, while Emaraaty(1.45) finished 4th on debut after a really poor start to close to 3 & 3/4 lengths at the line also hold a plethora of Group race entries next month for the Dubawi Colt.
Newmarket has a nice card with Dubara(5.30) looking to add another win to the collection after a neck victory last time over re opposing Pamora, raised 5 for the win & finally Wolverhampton hold an evening meeting, with Newstead Abbey aiming for 3 C/D wins after a nose defeat here prior to winning by the same margin at Chelmsford last time out
