4 Selections in total for Today ranging from 20/1 to 28/1
I said the last time I selected him that I would take an interest in Jacks Revenge over a longer trip and he is out again at Chester tomorrow over 8 furlongs. He has a decent enough record with a bit of cut in the ground and this race should suit him. He is unfortunately drawn wide but as a hold up horse he would need luck anyway so it’s not the end of the world. He is down to a decent mark now and this is a weaker race than a few he has gone for lately. 20/1 with Paddy Power looks value as is 18/1 with Stan James.
1 Point win 20/1 18/1 Stan
Ran a great race to be 2nd and the softer ground and longer trip suited him as i’d hoped. Another Crossbar hit..
This is a tough looking race with last week’s selection B Fifty Two heading the betting. It’s pretty clear we got the value last week and I wouldn’t be having any horse in this type of race at 6-7/1. Robot Boy stands out a bit here at a big price. He has had a couple of real eye-catching runs this year over 5 furlongs and is adaptable in terms of ground. His 8th in the Group 1 Kings Stand looks particularly good on another watch. He was poorer in his last two runs but that can happen over this trip and I’d prefer to look at his overall profile. He has also gone down another pound or two here and at 28/1 with 5 places he looks the best value on offer.

Ran Well but faded in the last furlong
I liked to look of Naadirr when I looked at this race yesterday evening but I wasn’t happy with the price. He has drifted out to a nice 22/1 this morning and I think he is a possibly unexposed horse who could have a bit more to give at this level and over this trip. His last run back after a break has worked out well and his very impressive seasonal opening beating of Astaire has also worked out well. I think he is underrated here and should be value at 22/1. Limato could win this hard held and I’m surprised he’s not a shorter price given his form but I’d prefer to go for the long priced option in this type of race.
1 Point win 22/1 Generally
Eye-catching run from Naadir in 4th, he traveled really well through, but unfortunately as i mentioned in the tip above Limato could win Hard Held and did. Somewhat peeved i didn’t follow up with a bet. Still were on the right track selection and Value wise.
With Gleneagles gone now I’m getting interested in Highland Reel at a huge price in the w/o Golden Horn Market. I think he is a progressive horse and judging by his 2nd in the French Derby this could well be his trip. I’m not overly impressed with Free Eagle so I’m wanting to take him on and 16/1 is too big .
1 Point win 16/1 Higland Reel w/o Golden horn 365/Ladbrokes
We certainly found the value here as he ran well and went of at 16/1, so getting that without the winner was decent value. This was a top class race.
