Todays Selection

Chepstow 3.45


We came into this week in brilliant form but it was about slowing down and getting used to the new Racing Post site. We have had only 3 selections this week as I have kept things pretty tight. One of these was a short priced winner. The two other selections were 10/1 (placed) and 20/1 (Lost) so we have neither made or lost any ground on the week. I am getting used to the new site now and I’m feeling better about it but I dont think I’m ready yet to start thinking about account bets so I will stay with selections today.

In terms of selections on the day it has been a very tight call. I had 5 options for selections today and whilst none looked like account bet strength
they all looked closely matched and as good as each other so there is a serious danger I have picked the wrong bets of several options today but I will list my best options now so you can see them

Wetherby 12.10 – Glenary 3/1 was a potential selection
Chepstow 1.35 – Arctic Shadow 8/1 with Elton 6/1 a saver
Great Leighs 3.30 – Beat The Bell each way 6/1
Chepstow 3.45 – Giles Cross 4/1 is an each way option
Great Leighs 4.00 – Port De La Ponch could beat the fav

In the end I went with GILES CROSS as the selection today. He is generally 4/1 and 9/2 with some independants and I like his chance but it is a day where several appeal but there isnt much between then and none stand out as outstanding hence no account bet.

7/2 at centre bet blue sq Tote



7/4 Gullible Gordon, 4/1 Mr Bennett, 5/1 Kayf Aramis, 7/1 Faneuil Hall, 8/1 Giles Cross, 12/1 C’Monthehammers, 20/1 Champage A Gogo, 20/1 Mr Bee Gee, 25/1 Atherstone Hill, 33/1 Irish Power, 33/1 Off The Shelf, 50/1 Society Night, 66/1 North Run.

The rest of Chepstow is just poor trend races and races that dont offer me much at all so I just think its best to leave the majority of races alone. The Maiden Hurdle at 3.45 may just be worth a second mention. The favourite GULLIBLE GORDON is impossible to judge having flopped at odds on last time but it would worry me and connections have said they are mystified why he ran so badly and I would just rather go each way on an alternative and I think there is one. Horses that ran just once – and once this season and placed in that race had a really strong record and I would argue that GILES CROSS who fits that pattern is one of the best profiles in the race and would be my danger to the favourite and the best each way bet in the race. He was 3rd on his debut and the runner up came out and won the Grade 2 hurdle at Sandown yesterday.
