Todays Nugget from Ade

ALL THE NINES 3.55 Hamilton to be placed

The Major is having £20 given the mans current form!

Dopping of the Cap – Well done Ade!!

Yesterday Ade tipped three horses up and all three came in – What a result.  

Monsieur Chevalier 18.35 Sandown

Fans celebrate in the huge crowd as Delta Blues wins the Melbourne Cup
Ade bags a hat-trick – They were on!

MONSIEUR CHEVALIER made it four from four with a stylish victory, powering clear of his rivals in the final furlong. He gives every impression of being likely to stay 6f, but he has plenty of pace and the fact that he stays 5f so well will be useful for the challenges to come. His next race will be the Norfolk Stakes over this trip at Royal Ascot, for which he has been trimmed a point or two to 5-1 favourite, with Richard Hughes reporting that he intends to employ the same tactics.

CWM Rhonda 17.40 Yarmouth – Advised Win

CWM RHONDDA opened her account in great style over course and distance nine days earlier and went in again under her penalty without having to be fully extended. She was ridden more handily and her rider got a great early position from her wide draw. It was clear at the furlong pole she was the one to be on and she is now obviously coming good for her connections. A bold bid for the hat-trick can now be expected. RP

DUNNO 8.50 Sandown – Advised Place – WON at 11/2

A competitive, good-quality handicap run at a lively gallop. DUNN´O, well drawn for these tactics, had already shown that he goes well round here, and deserves extra credit for again making all at such a good pace. He is very game and should not be underestimated when he goes to Ascot for the Royal Hunt Cup. Connections do not expect him to be inconvenienced by the straight course there, and he is now as low as 16-1. RP

The Majors in to his ankles bet on Osteopathic Remedy failed with that horse not quite getting there – 2l defeat in sixth.  Thankfully with the bets on the above beauties coming in, it was a profitable day.  The months profit is £121 and we look destined to finish in profit at month end unless something crazy happens!!

Next month – The Major shall take on Ade in a fictional cash £5000 contest.  The rules are:

1. At least 5 bets must be staked in total risking all £5000

2. Only one odds on bet allowed

There is a pint of guiness on it!

It is Busy Today!!

Another tip in for this evening:

DUNNO 8.50 Sandown – Place Bet

CWM Rhonda 17.40 Yarmouth

ha Major is in for £10 on both – Good Luck

Philip Makins Three and a Half Hour Ayr to Newcastle Journey ….. Interesting

Newcastle 8.40 – Osteopathic Remedy

I was not sure how much breathing was required but the tingle is back this morning.  Some bits of evidence when analysing racing just stand out and urge you to load the weapons and get the money down.  Today I have such a little piece and I want to get on now.

Philip Makin, a decent jockey,  rides Ingleby Lady in the 4.50pm Ayr 6f contest and then has to make a journey timed at 3h 44m by Multimap to get to Newcastle for their 8.40!  Perhaps he has a helicopter ride from an owner, more likely he is travelling by car in which case it is some effort to turn up for a 6f Newcastle £7,500 contest.

He rides Osteopathic Remedy who trades as favourite at 3.9.  It has to be said that last season the horse looked a more effective miler winning several handicaps whilst showing versatility in handling a variety of conditions.  Going off the boil at the back end of the season means the handicap mark looks decent and below previous winning marks.

This season has been poor to date, albeit in better races and never disgraced, but the last run showed more than signs of improvement with a length and a half third to machinist despite being hampered.  That form should do him well today.

It is a horse I might normally avoid due to a number of negatives – Poor track record, not great jockey record, OK for the time of year and ground but record at this level only reasonable.  However, the current support, the effort of the jockey and the last run have my spiddy senses going crackers.  Prime the cannons…..

Advice: 4.0 Osteopathic Remedy £30 win
