Weekly Handicap Blog – Fences will be the making of him!

This week features 2 or 3 that plenty of you wont be agreeing with but I am confident that next season and over fences and he will bounce back.

Cap Du Nord dropped 1lb to 139

This felt very much like an end of season handicap change from the handicapper rather than dropping him because he had disappointed. His form over fences this year has been very good, 412355 with his only poor running coming in a handicap hurdle. He finished 5th in his final run of the season in the Bet365 Gold Cup where the right […]

Betfair Hurdle – Saturday 8th February – Can JP win it again?

This weekend sees the Betfair Hurdle return to Newbury after it was run at Ascot last year due to the Equine Influenza outbreak. It’s a race that has had some very talented winners in the past including Make A Stand, Landing Light, Get Me Out Of Here, Zarkandar, My Tent Or Yours and more recently Ballyandy and Kalashnikov.

Both Get Me Out Of Here and My Tent Or Yours were owned by JP McManus whilst he has also had Bleu Et Rouge, Movewiththetimes, Alaivan and Waxies Dargle run good races in recent years.

This year he has 3 possible entries […]

Saturday 13th August 2016 – A Day to be Brave

2017-07-15T12:00:04+01:00August 13th, 2016|

Today there is racing at Doncaster, Lingfield, Market Rasen, Newbury, Newmarket, Ripon and Tramore and some high class races.

The feature race at Ripon today is the William Hill Great St Wilfred Stakes over 6f.

Nuno Tristan has been running well recently winning at Redcar easily before finishing 5th to Librisa Breeze at Ascot in the Gigaset International Stakes and then he finished 3rd at Glorious Goodwood in the Stewards Cup Consolation race behind Hoof It and Related. He didn’t get the clearest of runs that day and may well have won with a clear run. He’s been raised 1lb for that 3rd place but with Adam McNamara not riding today and […]

Over at Doncaster our former TOP TIP AaimTo Prosper stepped up in distance as we had hoped and duly won a handicap hurdle in great style just beating the well handicapped and gambled Cockney Trucker.

RatingTheRaces TOP TIPS made a profit of 6.05 points with an ROI of 27.50% This now takes our record to +124.40 in just 16 tipping days with an ROI of 42.03%.
