Good morning folks
A decent start to the flat season ensured yet another winning month and + 4.4 (55% ROI) points profit on the day. It could and should have been a bit better to be honest. Most selections ran well but without a doubt WHITEFOUNTAINFAIRY and DESERT WIND both go into the tracker as horses who will most DEFINITELY win races this season.
Both shaped very well and Whitefountainfairy was impeded at the start and was playing catch up thereafter but came home very nicely from an unfavourable position. Desert Wind floated across the ground and I feel the absence told late in the piece with race fit rivals getting the better of him.
The week ahead heralds the great 3 day Grand National meeting from Aintree.
A change of tack is in order as I class this as one of the three Festivals so I will be tipping in races I normally wouldn’t and run a separate ‘side bank’ to cover the selections instead of recording them against the main service. These festival tips achieved +115 points profit last year so lets hope we can add to that but, as with Cheltenham, it is always tough. Any selections for Thursday will be mailed out by 7:30PM on Wednesday evening.
I had a really good look today and a couple I fancied, especially MOXY MARES, are nons due to the quickening of the ground. He is a horse to keep a close eye on in the coming weeks/months.
It’s still very early days on the flat, with much taken on trust, and a tentative selection today is:-
STONOFIC – 1/2 Pt Each way @ 20-1 5 places generally
Needs to bounce back to form but stable jockey being booked bodes well. He is a strapping horse who is two very narrow 2nds from two attempts at this track, including this very race last year when the winner got first run on him. If ready to go, the price is way too big IMO and worth chancing here.
