2 Two Point bets sent for today along two big outsiders at 33/1 & 20/1
Didn’t even notice this very good handicap on the card when I looked earlier. I think Kasbah sticks out a bit as being well treated and having had a light season he seems to be getting going now judging by his last run. Some of his 2yo form makes interesting reading for a 87 rated horse and I wonder has this race been the plan. 20/1 seems a nice bit of value for what looks a possibly underexposed progressive horse.
1 Point win 20/1 Sporting/Paddy/888/32
This horse was backed into 14/1 at the off, and traveled really well to lead a furlong out but faded in the last 1/2 furlong to finish 4th. He ran well and probably has a race like this in him soon enough.
The ground is currently good around there and if it stays that way the current 7/1 available about Sole Power is going to look very big come race time. There is a chance that it will lash rain before the race and if it gets to soft he would be pulled out anyway so it seems a safe enough bet to me. He has been in very good form this year despite not winning as much as in previous years. A repeat of any of his Group 1 placed efforts will suffice here. He just won’t go off at 7/1. Pearl Secret was somewhat tempting at 25/1 but not anymore at the prices. The other one I’m interested in here is Take Cover a the current prices but if Sole Power runs here he is the value
2 Points win 7/1 Boyles/Power/Betfair/Stan
What a horse he is won with the ground against him, thank god they left him in after that rain. a Superstar… The other Horse mentioned Take Cover also ran a super race to be 3rd..
4:50 Curragh St Leger
Order of St George could well have a fair bit in hand here but I’m pretty sure that the price about last year’s winner Brown Panther is wrong. He has only run twice this year but stormed to a very impressive win at Meyden and then went down by ½ length to Snow Sky at York. I think these bits of form along with his win in this last year are the best on offer and given his flexibility regarding ground he looks a great bet at the 7/1 on offer at the moment with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. He looks about a 4/1 shot to me and that discrepancy can’t be ignored.
2 Points win 7/1 Ladbrokes & Paddy Power
Brown Panther looks in trouble there after breaking down very sad to see. Order of St George had the fair bit in hand i spoke about and won like a very good horse.
Judging by his beating of Outspoken and Bottany Bay and there subsequent suns in the Melrose at York, Archangel Raphael should stand a great chance here on these terms. He was poor enough in a Group 1 in France but there is a world of difference between that Group 1 and this albeit very good handicap. He is the highest rated in the field and will be carrying only 9:00 with his good claimer allowance. He should be involved at the business end at what looks a big price of 12/1. I’m also going to go with one at the other end of the spectrum here in Vastonea who was pretty shocking last time out but has run big races here before and with a better draw here I wouldn’t be surprised if he got involved at a huge price.
1 Point win 12/1 Generally Archangel Raphael
1 Point win 33/1 Generally Vastonea
The less said about those selections the better. I did notice Vastonea staying on a bit a the end and hopefully a pot to be won at a decent price.
