Day two of the Royal meeting and I escaped relatively unscathed yesterday, could have been better but racing is volatile and hit and miss at these meeting with fine margins often deciding your fate.
Straight into todays races and a lot more caution today as it seems a hard day to find winners and information has been not overly strong
2.30 BOSSY GUEST has been mentioned in numerous places and is also up top in my ratings I use to upset the favourite. Had a couple say they are unsure about Ivawood and certainly wouldn’t back it at 7/4 so that is good enough for me.
BOSSY GUEST £30 EW 8/1 (1/4 Odds 3 Places) +£30
3.05 I am told Acapulco has been laid out for this race ( not sure how you lay any horse out for a 23 runner dash). The one at a price I have had a mention for is DELIZIA so I will have a small interest there.
DELIZIA £15 EW 12/1 (1/4 Odds 4 Places) – £30
3.40 is again a no bet race for me. Integral I am told is very likely to win but at 10/11, 4/5 in places I will just let it pass me by.
4.20 I am told to take Free Eagle on as a few think that won’t be winning. Rather than lay it at the price I will go for the one I have been told should run well THE GREY GATSBY
THE GREY GATSBY £40 EW 13/2 (1/4 Odds 3 Places) +£25
5.00. Money has already come for the one I am told will run well MUNAASER. 30 runners so I am assuming there is a fair element of lottery to it. PIRI WANGO at a big price also has cropped up in mentions and is my sort of bet asI like to take the big prices in these races.
MUNAASER £25 EW 18/1 (1/4 Odds 5 Places) – £50
PIRI WANGO £20 EW 50/1 – £40
5.35 Another race it seems not a lot of confidence from those I know in the favourite and TOUCHLINE is the one they give the nod. REALTRA and OSAILA are two others that had decent words for, so 3 in the race for me to finish off and hope the favourite doesn’t bolt in.
TOUCHLINE £25 Win 8/1 – £25
REALTRA £20 EW 28/1 (1/4 Odds 4 Places) – £40
OSAILA £20 EW 14/1+£350
Daily Total = +£220
Meeting Total +£200.63
