  • Racing Tips November 10

    By on 9th November 2018

    It was two winners from three selections on Thursday. I was pleased La Bague Au Roi won at odds of 15/8. But, as most of you know by now, I’m always trying to find one at a bigger price and looking for potential value in the betting market is my aim.

    There are obvious short priced winners in the first two races over in Ireland at Naas on Saturday (Rhinestone and Footpad) but the odds on prices are too short to interest me. You could play a win only double, I suppose.

    Too many odds on favourites lose . . .

    The Big Bite, tipped at 3/1, won for us today as did 7/4 shot Chica Buena at Musselburgh. Two winners from four selections at this early stage of the season will do for me, especially so when the SP prices for each winner were shorter than the early prices available when I mailed members the night before racing.

    One loyal member got in touch with me yesterday to ask when I would next be offering ante-post advice for one of the forthcoming feature races over the jumps. That will likely be for the former Hennessy Gold Cup . . .

    Last weekend went well for existing members - as I write about here - and I was delighted that a few newer members joined in time to take advantage of those winners, including 5/1 shot Looksnowtlikebrian on Sunday.

    No day or weekend can always be like that, of course. A year of profitable punting consists of ups and downs. The main thing is that the ups outnumber the downs over the course of twelve months, so permitting us to finish the year ahead of the . . .

    Saturday went rather well for members old and new. Including those who have taken advantage of my £99 for a year of betting tips offer that ends on November 5th.

    Three winners from four races selected on Saturday and, for those who love to place a forecast bet, win only 5/1 selection Traffic Fluide coming home first and each way option Art Mauresque coming second, was a bonus.

    Earlier in the day New Quay, a 9/2 tip the day before racing, won. As did 15/8 selection Road . . .

    Cracker Factory, a 2/1 tip to members of VG Tips on Thursday night, won in very taking fashion on Friday. If you have the time, find the race replay on Racing UK website and watch how Cracker Factory wins with plenty to spare. That one goes into the notebook for future reference this jumps season.

    Storm Rising also won, but at odds too short for me to encounter. While that odds on fav won, Denmead could only finish third.

    I am a punter who likes much bigger prices and there's nothing around on Friday or Saturday at double . . .

    So what's the best policy at this early stage of the flat season? That's what one VG Tips subscriber has asked me.

    Well, don't go crazy. That's for sure. Remember, many of the horses you see racing now have not done so for more than 200 days. Some even longer than that. So race fitness is in doubt.

    It is the time of year to bet moderately and, as I always say, selectively. Don't be putting the kitchen sink on anything. Even if you own three kitchen sinks!

    If you are a serious punter and . . .

    Friday and Saturday went well for me and members of my long established VG Tips selections service.

    On Friday I selected two races at Cheltenham, my first foray into the new jumps season. That went rather well. First Assignment was available at odds of 12/1 when selected for members on Thursday night. That tip won a 20 runner race at SP odds of only 9/2. Clearly I was not alone in spotting the potential.

    And plenty of punters took the early 11/10 price about Lil Rockerfeller winning the next race, the Novices Chase at Cheltenham.

    I write this preview of Saturday prior to Friday's racing being underway. So I cannot comment on what went on at Doncaster and Cheltenham today.

    That name Cheltenham crops up again on Saturday when we see lots of familiar names make their seasonal debut over obstacles. Some will love it. Others would rather have stayed asleep in their box.

    If you love jumps racing, this is the stage of the season to have a notebook close at hand and to watch racing. Make a note of any horses that catch your eye, regardless of whether they win or not . . .

    Last weekend we enjoyed winners on Champions Day. Stradivarius (Evens), Roaring Lion (5/2) and Cracksman (5/6) all delivered returns at short prices.

    Harry Angel, a 6/1 each way selection, finished second and has now - like Cracksman - been retired to stud. Thanks for the memories.

    The one that got away last weekend, and about which I have been kicking myself ever since, was Sharja Bridge. Heaven knows I wrote so glowingly about the then 16/1 runner in the Balmoral Handicap. I should have offered two each way bets in that race, including that eventual well backed 8 . . .

    We’re almost there. The culmination of the flat racing season.

    Champions Day takes place at Ascot on Saturday and some of the top class winners of this past season will be glad of a winter rest after tomorrow.

    Bookies will be running scared if all the obvious ones win, the favourites. While I am not known for being a favourite backer - give me a 25/1 each way placed success over a short priced favourite winner any day - it will be hard for me to bet against some of those contenders on Saturday who have won for me and . . .
