Anyway, I offered them just the two selections on Thursday. Both won. It’s always nice to hear back from members and a few have been in touch to tell me that they had Fireglow (9/4) and Tanaza (11/4) in a double at accumulative odds of around 5/1. Well done to them.
Fireglow was a favourite, and duly delivered at Sandown. Over in Ireland I took on the favourite, Alice Springs, and did so via the Dermot Weld trained Tanaza. And here is how I explained that decision to members on Wednesday morning.
In their e-mail, I told them: “A winner of a maiden over course and distance in June, the second and third horses that day have won races since. Alice Springs and Tanaza have something in common already in their short careers. They have each beaten a rival called Miss Gossip. Alice Springs was two and a quarter lengths in front of that one in June. Tanaza finished four and three quarter lengths in front of Miss Gossip (who is also in this race) at this course.”
Tanaza beat Alice Springs at Leopardstown by a length and a quarter.
Today, Friday, will be a challenge for all punters. Heavy rain is forecast for Ascot and Newmarket. The going at each course is likely to change significantly. By Saturday, when the feature race at Ascot is the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the ground conditions are likely to be on the soft side of ‘Good.’
I have analysed five races on Friday and take on four favourites. I f you want those selections, then become a member by signing up at the website for only £10 a month.
