SITE MOTORING ON AGAIN. NEYMAR TO BE A COOLFIGHTER.
We are striding on lately even with all the upset and have driven the overall profit up to 47.5 points so let’s hope we can keep adding to that.
Erlkonig came out of his Tipperary win in excellent fettle and has a choice of targets in the coming days on the flat. He is entered in the 50,000 Cork Derby on Sunday and in the Wolferton at Royal Ascot next Friday. I look a fair idiot already but imagine one of those crazy top hats and tails on a man from the mountains, maybe it might scare away the opposition. Anyway, he has multiple entries coming up , including in America and we will see where the best ground is before deciding but job done with him as like so many of our German purchases.
Irving is having a well deserved rest, Lochnagar ready to win , Nexius on Summer break, Tahira entered Saturday , Slowfoot out soon, Ordensritter on short break and watch out for Floresco come the Autumn, Ibis Du Rheu on Summer grass and you will be having a tenner each way on Postillion when he runs shortly. Coolfighter should win next Saturday week. [you have notice]
Nottingham 4 10 today.
This is a two horse race in my opinion but both my choices want a strong gallop to aim at and there is a distinct lack of same in this line up. Connections of Run With Pride must be awake to this while P J O’Gorman knows his Monsieur Chevalier must be ridden with restraint anyway so his chance is somewhat reliant on his rival making the running, if you can follow all that. The ever drying ground will suit Monsieur and not Run With Pride. Spencer is a terrific booking for O’Gormans horse but he will be screaming for a gap late on and in the hope that he will get it I take him to gun down Run With Pride at the death. I will be sick if I get this wrong as I cannot see any of the others involved.
After all that I have just noticed Paddy Power are going 9/4 Monsieur Chevalier without the favourite Run With Pride so that takes all the agony out of the equation. 2 pts on MONSIEUR CHEVALIER at 9/4 w/o.
Nottingham 3 40. DESERT RECLUSE is plummeting down the weights and has his first run for Ian Williams. If he recaptures his best form he is ridiculously well handicapped and in that event he should slide home here.
1 pt win at 10/3 with PP.
I think the World Cup is ”surprisingly” between Brazil and Argentina and the top goalscorer either Messi or Neymar.
World Cup bets :
Outright winners : ARGENTINA, 4/1 and a 1 pt win.
Top Goalscorer : NEYMAR, 9/1 and a 1 pt win.
Tonight’s match : First Goalscorer : 1 pt win at 7/2 Neymar and a comfortable Brazil victory.
