Lousy weather and, lousy racing!

The feast that was York ended on Saturday, we had a couple of decent races on Sunday, but by crikey they are making us all pay for it now. Yesterday we had a plethora of Mickey Mouse races from the two meetings at Ayr and Bath, and it’s more of the same today, with 15 of the 19 races set to go ahead being Class 5 / Class 6.

It is seriously horrendous punting material but unlike yesterday, when the sun was shining and I could get the washing out on the whirly drier, today we will be storm lashed and so all I’m going to here today, is include the text I provided to my subscribed membership at Post Racing.

It revolves around the once race at Catterick, that I would consider playing myself.

The best two races on the card would be the 3-25pm and the 4-35pm and I have looked through the form of the horses taking part in those races.

In the 3-25pm we have four that have won on heavy:

SEVENNA STAR
BURIRAM
CLEARANCE
DR RIO

In the 4-35pm

ZIP

The only bet I’d consider today would be a 20/80 ZIP.

He is a previous course and distance winner to add to that heavy ground win (which came at Catterick). His form figures on heavy ground read: 5, 2, 2, 5, 1 

What I have done with this race, is rate it on the basis it is heavy by off time.:

$* – ZIP…+10
$ – RIGHT ACTION….+4
$ – GLENGARRY….-2
DANCING RAVE….-3
$ – GLORY OF PARIS….-10
3 – COMMANCHE FALLS….-19
REDROSEZORRO….-20
RUX RUXX….-23
PARYS MOUNTAIN….-30
PROUD ARCHI….-32
CANFORD’S JOY….-40

ZIP has also been given the box draw in one….a low draw here is favoured over high, middle slightly worst of the three options.

This type of track suits him perfectly…sharp. left handed….and his form figures here and at Chester read: 2, 3, 1

His jockey has to make sure he makes use of that good draw and doesn’t miss the break, I can see him sitting handy, going to the front around a furlong out and if he does, not a lot will be coming from off the pace on slop.

It’s a 12 runner race and they currently go 6/1 the field….that’s how competitive it is on paper but I imagine he’ll be supported, if it does go heavy.

I would certainly not be in a hurry to bet on horses today, until we have the evidence of our own eyes with regards the ground.

Chepstow tomorrow has already been called off after more than 80mm hit that track and it’ll be a long time drying that place out. We’ll just have to deal with each day as it comes right now and make decisions based on what we know, as opposed to guessing.

Have a great day!
