Short write-ups as I’m on hols and using phone.

July Cup

Hot Streak looks the only viable horse that could beat Slade Power here . He is right at the top over 5f and has form on softer ground. 9\1 looks the best value of the alternatives to the very solid Slade Power.

1 point win Hot Streak 9\1 Ladbrokes.

York 2:55

Very difficult race but the value here appears to lie with Sennockian Star at a big looking 25/1. He has proved he is capable of this mark and if he get an easy lead he may well be hard to pass. He is a up and down sort but that is built into the price at its worth a small bet.

1 Point win 25/1 Various

Newmarket 3:50

I’m already on Hot Streak for value here but I get the feeling that something could run a big race at a huge price here. Going through the field I’m beginning to think Tropics may well be the one that can get involved. He ran a eye-catching race last time out at Ascot and has form on softer ground. He could well get into the places here at a huge 66/1.

1 Point EW 66/1 Bet365

Ascot 1:55

Racy has been improving lately and I thought he ran a great race at Ascot until fading over 6 Furlongs, the drop back in trip here should suit and I’ll take another shot on him at a decent looking 20/1.

1 Point EW 20/1 Various
