SATURDAY 13TH APRIL. HOLD UP MERCHANTS.
A brutal performance on Thursday leaves profit now on 35.5. Today looks tough again but there is value.
Kempton 2 05. SHAMAAL NIBRAS might get it done under Hughesie from a good draw. Needs late delivery off strong pace. 11/2 PP. 1 pt win.
Kempton 3 15. I hope the track favours deep closers today as most of my selections like to be held up and STIRRING BALLAD should be flying late from an unfavourable draw. If her draw was kinder I would be going nap, however 1 pt win at 4/1 PP.
Kempton 3 50. Connections really messed up MISTER MUSIC last year . Every chance they got they put him in circumstances that hurt him. Like some of my tipping lately it was just plain crap. Nearly everything is right here. If there are no after effects from the bad management of last season and there is a truly run race then I rate this lad nap material. He needs holding up and has a whirlwind turn of foot. Richard Hughes is ideal. 2 pts win at 7/1 with William Hill and Bet Victor.
Kempton 5 00. DESERT RECLUSE is way overpriced. 1 pt win at 14/1 with PP.
Doncaster 2 20. I love the chance of SOVEREIGN DEBT in this. Big improver and the round mile will be spot on. Should get the perfect toe for Spencer from stall 1 and like all mine at Kempton is best served late. 2 pts win at 3/1 with Coral , Boylesports and several more.
Doncaster 2 55. MAN OF PLENTY needs a late late show also and should get the strong pace he will need to drag him into this at the death. He has the coffin box draw in 15 of 15.I would be very strong only for that. Ryan Moore is on duty . Still has great chance. 1 pt win at 11/2 with Coral and William Hill.
Doncaster 3 30. The stable rate DUKE OF FIRENZE a bit better than his mark of 92 and Ryan Moore will be hoping for yet another clear run close home from his hold up mount. 1 pt win at 7/1 with Stan James and William Hill.
I hope to perform better today……..
