Wednesday Longshot

3:35 Goodwood

Its yet to be proven that the current 3yo’s are anything but ordinary, so given that the older milers form keeps getting strengthened this year , we’ll have to go for the value options here.  Accidental Agent is near the best of these on his day. If his head is right today he can get involved at a huge price. Similarly I Can Fly has a big race in her at some stage .

1 Point EW 50/1 Accidental Paddy

1 Point EW I Can Fly 40/1 Paddy

7:20 Galway

I’ve only had 1 horse in mind for this since I saw the entry. Coney Island is the class horse in the race, of what look a good mark. Once more over the cliff

2 Points win 14/1 paddy/betfair/vc


Fun Mac looks sure to go close here . Worst phrase in racing is ew bet to nothing , that might apply to him . I’ll still go win though .

1 point win 12/1 gen


Long Shot Saturday


Jukebox Jive has been improving this year, has form around here on soft . His mark should put him close enough here at this trip .

1 point ew 50/1 5 places hills, sky, coral



Not a long shot but The Tin Man is a long way clear of these, goes on soft and really should be shorter than 2/1 .

2 points win 2/1 gen



Clay Regazzoni ran better at Royal Ascot than his placing indicates , having no cover all the way and travelled well. This trip and race should suit him . This is a much weaker race 

1 pt ew 40/1 5 places 365

Curragh 3:25

Ardhoomey cant be too far away here, in what looks a poor enough renewal and of a good mark compared to last year . 

1 point ew 20/1 5 places sky/paddy

Market 2:10

Going to have a small win bet on John Constable here . He never got into it last time , but came back to life the time before . 16/1 is enough to be sorry not to be on if he gets back to form.

 1 point win 16/1 gen

Long Shot Saturday

4:00 Ascot

Accidental Agent is the best of these on his best form and if we can get over his stall stand in the Queen Anne , he is the most likely winner here. The 3 lbs he is getting from Beat the Bank should be enough and 7/1 is value.

2 Points win 7/1 Gen

York 3:50

Another Touch ran well in this last year of a higher mark and although it’s hard to know what to make of the fact that it’s his first run. 40/1 is value.

1 point ew 40/1 5 place hill/bvic

Newmarket 4:40

So Perfect is one of my horses to follow this year. I think this 6 furlongs with an uphill finish and fast ground is her ideal conditions. She gets all the allowances here and i think she will run a  big race.

2 Points EW 33/1 4 places Paddy Power

Ascot 1:45

This type of madness suits Blue De Vega perfectly judging by his Dash run. He has form here and we can write of his last 2 runs which get him here on a very nice mark.

1 Point EW 20/1 5 Places Gen

Newmarket 3:30

Good Effort was poor in Meydan but that is often the case and he has taken a while to come to hand since. The trainer knows how to get one ready for these races, and some of his form last year puts him on a decent mark.

1 Point EW 33/1 5place gen

United Front is like many of the horses from the stable that look to me like they can improve readily for a run. He was disappointing last time but there is something about his action that I’ve seen before that indicated to me he is capable of much more. He should have learned from both his runs so far and 66/1 with 4 places is worth a shot.

1 Point EW 66/1 4 places Betvictor


So Perfect just wins. I’m a huge fan and expect her to win a group1 this year. Form with Advertise last year looks very good now.

3 Points win 5/1


If there is a horse that can cause a surprise here its Speak in Colours. He just looks to me like a horse that can improve this year and get involved at the business end in these races. He’s had a nice seasonal opener and will be better here. 50/1 is worth the risk to find out

1 Point EW 50/1 4 places generally


Fighting Irish ran really well in the Commonwealth Cup here last year from the wrong side,, and although things didn’t go well for him after, he is down to a very good mark. You’d have to think he would be targeted here. 80/1 is massive

1 Point EW 80/1 6 places Coral
