BIG SATURDAY. LOADS, BUT BE CAREFUL.
I am struggling a bit for form and that was poor yesterday so I am off a profit of 79.5 starting today . No excuses if it goes wrong on an extremely busy day for me. Please only bet what you can afford and no more. This site will be showing a profit as always overall no matter how today goes. Stick to the rules people.

Most insufferable and annoying people people [ of which there are plenty ] should take a leaf out of Sir Michael Stoute’s book and wear a ”net muzzle” over their mouth to keep them quiet . Stoute equips PLOVER with such a contraption in order to keep him in check and it worked perfectly the last day at Kempton and should do so again today. He is improving and I think will win. Stan James are a standout 2/1 so 2 pts win at that.

WENTWORTH has a bastard draw in fifteen while chief market rival and biggest danger Windhoek has the best berth in one. However , the latter is likely to face fierce competition for the lead in this big handicap and this might allow for genius Hughsie to get his mount in behind and bring him through very late on. He got it slightly wrong on him at Ascot but that is the way this horse has to be ridden. WENTWORTH is 9/2 with Bet Victor and Willian Hill. 1 pt win at that price.

Even though INTEGRAL is rated a monstrous 19 pounds inferior to favourite and big danger Nargys .I think she can prove the assessor wrong. The daughter of the frustrating ,stamina laden Dalakhani can prove too strong in the uphill finish for the speedier market leader and give Stoute a double. 1 pt win at 9/2 with Paddy Power.

The Eclipse. What a contest. I am taking on the favourite Al Kazeem. Nothing wrong with him at all. I prefer PASTORIUS and DECLARATION OF WAR. Those of you that follow my site know that I love all these three horses but especially the last two mentioned. PASTORIUS is a crazy price for one of his ability and basically that is because he is from Germany. People just do not understand how good these horses are from that country.They are winning more often than than they lose when they challenge overseas and this fellow has already taken one the best races in the world already this year in France, the Prix Ganay. That was a wildly competitive event with five individual Group 1 winners lining up. He won it well after showing his customary turn of foot. He disappointed next time in Singapore but that was down to the insane heat and humidity. My concern is that that was only 48 days ago but I am sure they have him rehydrated and recovered . He will take all the beating. DECLARATION OF WAR is high class also , he has won on soft/heavy ,fibresand and polytrack and fast turf and over 7f, 8f,10f and 11f. Ah, I think it is safe to assume this horse is versatile He is improving fast and will end up in the Breeders Cup Classic on dirt in November and with a winning chance. I cannot split himself and the German so I am advising a one pt win on both , PASTORIUS at 10/1 with PP and DECLARATION OF WAR at 4/1 with PP also and a 1 pt reverse forecast.
CAUCUS is a late maturer and goes well fresh. He can prove that here. Bet Victor and Stan James will pay us out at 9/4. 2 pts win .

NINGARA will love the extra furlong from the nine of his win the last day and although Endorsing is dangerous I love the chances of Balding’s horse . 2 pts win at 4/1 with PP.
Haydock 2 55.
This is wide open but I am chancing BANNOFEE at 9/1 . The oaks was too much for her the last day but with the allowances she has her chance in this. William Hill and Bet 365 are going 9/1. That is a 1 pt win at that.

STAR LAHIB is close to the bottom of the handicap. She is totally unexposed over this trip and in general as she is a lightly raced animal, especially from this yard. I suppose that is the worry as Johnston racks up the runs with all of his string. I am willing to take the chance at the lofty 11/1 that Stan James are offering. 1 pt win.

I love these 7f nurseries and God damn and blast it if CULDAFF doesn’t power home. He is my nap . 2 pts win at a juicy 11/4 with Bet Victor.

For those of you with any money left after all of the above then you can lump on BROUGHTON who should will win this on the bridle. 2 pts win at the incredibly generous even money that Paddy Power and others are offering.
