Yawn & Stretch.........

Up far to early ffs!! , went out for a few early evening sherbets and predictably enough got ratted!! , can never just have 1 and be happy  , i always seem to just carry on until i can longer walk ;-@@@ , so i awoke with a mouth like an arabs flip flop and a splitting headache....time for the paracetamol's and a litre of tea!.
Getting some stats work done this morning whilst i review the days cards and there is some good racing today , i have 4 races to get stuck into today and seem to be back in form after a 4/4 on weds i hit all the right notes yesterday although the place dutch didnt payoff i countered that with my Lay / Trade on key to the west and i nailed the other two races so profit wise it was another 3/3 , so 7/7 in last 2 days is quite pleasing, so lets take a look at todays 4 races....


Fontwell Park 16:30 Standard Open NH Flat Race
£2100.00 added, 4-6yo, 1m 6f, Class 6

..A fairly decent looking event which should concern just 3 principal runners , Unex Degas , Il Presidente and RUGGED JACK .
Unex Degas ( non runneris a good looking sort from the Pipe Yard which has a bit of fair form and has the blinkers applied for the first time today , out of High Chapparal a much improved run is expected.
Il Presidente is very interesting coming over from Germany to run in a NHF race , if the money is down for this then i would suggest following it.
Rugged Jack is the form choice and the likely fav and tbh at this juncture i see no point in deserting him as i feel there is a lot more to come , a WIN bet is the suggestion on this although at between 3.0-5.0 all three could be backed for a fair value Dutch ( my bet ) .

Fontwell 4.30
 1st2 Il Presidente (GER)11-4
 2nd1 Rugged Jack (FR)6-4 F



Lingfield Park 15:20 Maiden Stakes
£3500.00 added, 3yo only, 1m 2f, Class 5

..This will be a straight dual between COTTON TRADER and THREE BARDS as both have solid form although in all honesty although Cotton Trader is Fav Three Bards has imo the better form and certainly has the better speed figures i make this a GOLD RATED DUTCH ( fixed return , combined odds around 1.32 , ie: £162 staked returns £50 profit on either winning approx ) .

Wolverhampton 18:40 Maiden Fillies' Stakes
£3500.00 added, 3yo plus, 1m 141y, Class 5

Only a small field but a tricky maiden nonetheless. Millibar should have the beating of Zenarinda on today's terms but is less certain to get the better of the once-raced Arch Of Colours, who wasn't disgraced on her debut at Kempton and will appreciate the extra distance. Strawberrymystique makes her belated racecourse debut and the half-sister to high-class mare, Strawberrydaiquiri, should be noted for any strong support in the betting, but fellow newcomer MARGATE is a first foal of a Listed winner and the Khalid Abdulla-owned filly gets the nod to make a winning start.
..For me the bet in this race is the LAY / Trade on ARCH OF COLOURS.




Dundalk 18:20 
Fundraising Made Easy At Dundalk Maiden
€10000.00 added, 3yo only, 7f

..This looks set up for ATTICUS FINCH , now trying 7f for the first time after getting outstayed over 1m and running on well over 6f lto, Tigresa may prove to be of value in the place market but in all honesty i see no other bet here other than a straight win on Atticus Finch.



Races 1,2 and 4 will be used for todays TRIXIE and todays LOTD is Arch of Colours.

Have fun , keep smiling and keep the here all day if anyone wants any race advice ;-) , ttfn x
