Evening all from the Major who writes from the sofa perusing tomorrows cards. Chepstow and Leicester have a couple of decent races and so I thought a few tips were in order…
Chepstow Tuesday Tip
In the novice affair (second race on the Chepstow card), you have to be taken with the chances of Uimhir a Seacht. the Major tipped Uimhir a Seacht on seasonal reappearance at 14/1 but was a race too early as you had to wait for the Fontwell subsequent appearance to get the money paid!
At Chepstow, you can get 5/4 tomorrow on a follow up win and I am backing the girl to get the job done. If a three quarter of a stone rise puts you off, don’t be. I think she has more to offer stepped up in trip and she has my full backing tomorrow.
Leicester Tuesday Tips
The opening novice looks set up for the Ferguson trained Pine Creek. My tip was rated 98 on the flat and won a tidy race at Longchamp. He made a pleasing debut over Folkestone fences with Tealissio in behind. He will improve for that but a reproduction is likely good enough. The Folkestone race was well advertised by the winner Lord of House who went in again at Sandown beating some very decent sorts, although it has to be accepted that he had the benefit of a featherweight.
In the 2.10 at Leicester Lovcen is another worthy favourite to put in your multiples. A winner at the Aintree Grand National meeting at the top-level, an Albert Bartlett placed horse that boasts Fingal Bay as one of the former defeated foes. Lovcen got a tough chase introduction in the Feltham. He stayed in touch for ten fences but was a bit scruffy and is entitled to have learned. Dropping to this company should make life a lot easier and as long as the experience has taught him something, better is surely expected – The Major is surprised to see odds against so get stuck in – 11/10 – Paddy Power.
Whispering Gallery was a very good staying flat horse and turning out on debut at the belated age of seven is taken to get off to a winning start in the 2.40.
Four favourites…. I know… Get a Yankee on the go and thank me later.
