JUNGLE INTHEBUNGLE – 14.40
Drawn 1 over 5f is a big advantage at Beverley & with Mick Channon a rare visitor & in red hot form I will take a chance at 9/1 that he’ll give me a run for my money. As usual I recommend a saver place bet or if you are more conservative just the place bet on the Betfair exchange where he is currently 3/1.
KODDYANNA – 15.15
This race is also over 5f and Richard Fahey runs two here. I take the Paul Hanigan choice drawn low in 6 to come out on top.
BUSTAM – 17.15
Won’t be a great price and I advise a look at the market as this from the Quinn yard. Main reason for choosing Bustam is the draw. Emphatic his main market rival is coming from a wide draw in 6 and Bustam is coming from 2. At Catterick this may just be enough of an advantage to see him home and as it stands he represents better value as in a handicap he would have to concede 4lbs to Emphatic.
LAST PAGE – 17.10
David Evans is having a little purple patch at the moment and Silvestre De Sousa is on board today. Drawn wide he will have the advantage of running up the stands rail and his recent form suggests he could take a race of this sort. Not a confident pick after SdS’s display yesterday for me but he did win one for Evans so we’ll see.
BYRON FLYER – 15.40
Ryan Moore is the outstanding jockey at Newmarket. He rarely rides for Ian Williams and when he rode this horse last he was beaten a neck in a similar event (1m6f Cl2) at Doncaster. Seventh in the Cesarewitch here over 2m2f he was there until loosing his place inside the final furlong. Good chance and at 7/1 will definitely be placed.
AIM OF ARTEMIS – 16.15 (LAY BET – FALSE FAVOURITE)
Currently 4/7 favourite this horse has won a minor event and should progress. First run for John Gosden he may well win this and I advise watching the market to see if professional money is lumping on. But to me 4/7 is terrible value with several others having reasonable chances 0 that’s not factoring the surprise newcomer or improver. LAY as long as the money doesn’t come.
REVEREND JACOBS – 13.55 (NAP)
Now here’s a horse which has shown his form and looks a really good thing. William Haggas and the young Kevin Stott have a good record and even though he doesn’t come up to Scotland often Haggas has a 28.5% strike rate at this track. So at around evens to slight odds on this is a fair bet as we have also seen what the others can do and The Glasgow Warrior represents the biggest threat but should be well beaten.
JACOB BLACK – 17.30
There are always winners for Joe Fanning here at Musselburgh because he is such a fantastic judge of pace and this track favours front runners. Jacob Black has won here over C&D and can run from the front so I expect that to be the tactic today with Joe winding it up as they enter the straight and the others just unable to pass. You could look at a straight bet or this one has “back to lay” all over it. Currently 2/1 (3.0 or better) place a £x bet to win on Betfair exchange. Then when in running if he gets out in front as predicted place the lay bet of £2x at evens (2.0). If things go as predicted this will be taken between the 2f and 1f poles as in running punters realise he might make all and you will make £x profit (where x= what ever stake you choose £10, £20…).
I will do a video on “back to lay” betting in the coming week.
