TIPS OF THE DAY – Newcastle June 5th 2018

NEWCASTLE – June 5th 2018


Please refer to the blog post regarding false favourites. Alfie Solomons is therefore a strong lay bet as I believe he will be up against it to overcome all the disadvantageous factors ranged against him.


LIGHT OF JOY – 19.45

Looks a battling sort who won on her reappearance at Leicester; having to find room and accelerate going uphill and ran a bit green going to the line. She’s well bred and looks to be progressing so should have the beating of Stoney Broke. Belisa is the one to fear from the Ivan Furtado stable.

    ALFIE SOLOMONS – WINNER (Recommendation was to lay at evens)
    Won with a little in hand although he had to work for it about a furlong from home as Hard Forest took him on. When I recommended a lay bet he was trading at evens but drifted to 2.8 before starting at 2.56. He also traded at nearly 3/1 in running. Obviously the horse took to the tapeta, his jockey did not have him lead, stall 2 didn’t effect him and he had enough speed and stamina on the testing 5f to beat this lot. If I’d backed him at evens I would have felt a little aggrieved as he didn’t win like an even money shot.

    Liked what I saw. Ridden beautifully by James Doyle she showed her battling spirit to draw clear in the final furlong. Could do even better over 1m4f so probably one to stay with next time out.
