A tight looking handicap, but I still feel like there is more to come from this 7-year-old mare.
She seemed to come back a different horse after recently undergoing a wind op, with a close 4th here over 3 miles, although I think the soft ground made it too much of a test for her.
We then saw the benefit of her returning to good ground at Uttoxeter, and a drop in trip to 2 miles 4 furlongs, where she duly dotted up off a mark of 74. They tried her over 3 miles again next time off a mark of 82, where she travelled well, but didn't see it out.
She ran a great 2nd on the all-weather since last being seen (the winner is now 10lb higher rated), and I think this trip of 2 miles 4 furlongs looks perfect on the likely good to soft ground. The conditional jockey takes off a handy 5lb, so she's effectively only 2lb higher than her win back in June.
Impressive when winning over this course and distance on his latest start, with the cheekpieces seeming to work a treat. He’s effectively only 5lb higher as the conditional can use his full claim, but hopefully it won’t be as testing this time, and he does need to prove his fitness back from another break.
The best horse racing tipsters will often suggest the number of points you should stake on each bet. For example, a two-point win, or a one point each way bet. This method can be used for all levels of horse racing bettor, as you decide how much each betting point is worth.
If you start with a total betting pot of £50, each point is worth 50p. If you start with £100, each point is worth £1. Simply divide your total betting pot by 100 to work out how much each point is worth.
Once you boost your betting bank by 50% with winnings, you should increase your point value accordingly. For example, if you build up 150 points, your point value should increase by 50%, so £1 becomes £1.50 and £5 becomes £7.50.
