The two feature races of the day resulted in two double figure price winners for members of VG Tips.
At odds of 10/1 and 14/1 respectively when selected for subscribers the day before racing, BIELSA and WINGS OF WAR delivered punting profit for those betting on Saturday.
BIELSA SCORES IN THE AYR GOLD CUP
He’s been threatening to win a big handicap all season long. Today was the day. Kevin Stott riding for in form trainer Kevin Ryan chose to go it alone. Bielsa ran on his own, hugging the rail and getting the better of those racing in the middle or on the far side at the sun kissed Ayr racecourse. Doing his best work at the finish, Bielsa won by two and a quarter lengths and at SP odds of 15/2.
In my detailed preview for Saturday’s racing, I alerted members to how this race had been won by a horse drawn in a double figure stall in recent years. Bielsa came out of stall 25. I told them he didn’t win often but that he was much better off at the weights this time compared to some of those he had finished behind in the past.
It won’t have been only Leeds United supporters backing the horse named after their manager. My most loyal, long serving subscribers to my well established betting tips service are also pleased that Beilsa scored at last. They’re such a nice bunch, I am happy for them.
GOING TO WAR IN THE MILL REEF STAKES
I could not understand why the bookies had Wings of War as big as 14/1 to win a race named after one of the greatest thoroughbred racehorses of all time. While I could understand why Dhabab and Gubbass headed the market, I am always on the lookout for something at a double figure price for myself and fellow each way backers who subscribe to VG tips.
After all, the Clive Cox trained Wings of War has been racing well this season, including when only beaten a length in a recent Group 3 race.
Here is an excerpt from what I wrote to VG Tips members on Friday:“You can get 14/1 about Wings of War and I would prefer to take that. Turned out quickly again after finishing a one length second on the all weather at Kempton a couple of weeks ago, Wings of War had previously finished a very close third in a Class 2 handicap at York. What is interesting about that race is that four and a half lengths behind him in fourth was Symphony Perfect – a filly that had previously been beaten only half a length by Gubbass.”
Wings of War won handsomely, running on late to snatch victory by a head. Trainer Clive Cox has high hopes for the future of Wings of War.
Studying prior form, not just of those involved in the races but also those the selected one has raced against previously, is important. That’s just one aspect of the research and form study I undertake every week, every year.
JOIN VG TIPS AND BE A PROFITABLE PUNTER
Whether you like betting on horse racing, football or both; it’s worth joining VG Tips as a monthly or annual member.
Profitable punting is a marathon, not a sprint. You have to be in it to win it. I have spent decades showing others how to beat the bookie. To end each year in profit. I use the experience of my own years of punting, the lessons learned, and pass them on to those who are starting out on the road to being a fellow profitable punter, or people who wish to be better at betting.
