Hi all –
A pulsating weekend of action last weekend but no joy for us. Hopefully we can make amends tomorrow.
First up – at Ayr in the opener on Gold Cup day – RECOVERY RUN (4/1 bet365, Coral, BetVictor) can get Oisin Murphy and Andrew Balding, who bring a strong contingent up to Scotland, off to a winning start. He has been progressing nicely through his four runs, remains on a very winnable mark, and boasts an impressive win on his only turf run to date. On that occasion he was a narrow winner over Lone Eagle but that Galileo colt has won twice since and the pair were five lengths clear of the third when they met in that Sandown race. recovery Run looks sure to be a leading player here and the 4/1 looks a little generous.
Later, over at Newmarket, the filly ARABIC CHARM (7/2 bet365) is another who looks to hold very strong claims. this three year old daughter of Exceed and Excel remains a maiden after four starts but acquitted herself well against some hardened handicappers last time prior to that she’d just failed on her handicap bow against her own age group. She looks very likely to win off this sort of mark and today looks a good opportunity. the 7/2 looks good value.
Have a great weekend and hopefully a few winners to improve the bank balance,
