With 19 runners in the first race at Ascot today, (13.45) it will be a bit of a cavalry charge and very difficult to pick a winner but I feel that Tis Marvelous has a good chance for a small bet.
C&D winner last summer and again was runner up in the Wokingham three weeks ago. 2 lb rise is more than fair and he has a great chance.
Trainer: Clive Cox
Jockey: Adam Kirby
HYDROPLANE in the 20.50 at Salisbury looks good. I backed it on the exchange early and got 6.0 for it (5/1 in old money).
If it was a slightly bigger price I’d do it each way but the price is what it is I’m afraid. Got a good draw in stall 1 so that should help its chances.
Trainer: Sir Mark Prescott (currently in good form)
Jockey: Luke Morris
I’m still studying the form and I am confident there will be one or two other good bets to have a go at today.
Please gamble responsibly and I strongly suggest very small stakes just for the fun of watching them race. If the fun stops stop, please don’t ever bet money you cannot afford to lose.
Last ti for today is DRAGON COMMAND 17.35 York who is really improving fast since being gelded and I expect it to do well today. Backed it at 9/4
Dragon Command chased leaders but never really threatened , unable to quicken 2f out, but kept on towards finish.
Tis Marvelous won at a very good price. Pleased with that.
I may leave the update on Hydroplane until tomorrow as I’ve had enough for one day!
Even better news Hydroplane wins making it 2 out of 3 today and decent prices.
