Beverley winners tracked and traced!


Well, I hope so, anyway. I generally do well at this track and finding winners has been as easy as shelling peas. It is late September now though, the time of the “funky result”, be it on the flat, or over timber. Let’s just see what we have to work with.

The market is talking only to a pair in the 1-00pm, CHARLIE FELLOWES – 15/8 > 13/8 and PIVOTING, 7/2 > 11/4. The rest are friendless and so I’m thinking a dutch that pair is a profit maker.

Only NAAMOOS is attracting support of any kind in the 1-30pm race, 5/4 > 4/5, whilst everything bar FAE THE PORT (10/1 > 15/2), is lengthening. I’m seeing that as place money and players expect the favourite to be collecting here.

Since my morning Newsletter went out advising MARKAZI as the OMM here (12/1 > 6/1), I’ve seen that ease slightly to 7/1, as the money has come strong for IDOAPOLOGISE, 11/2 > 7/2F

That 3-y-o rates 8th best on my figures but comes here wearing first time headgear and it looks like they expect it to work. This horse has not been seen for 97 days, and it would appear to be they have waited for an end of season campaign. This horse has won two of it’s previous seven races, one in September, one in October….seems to be it comes alive when the leaves start thinking about falling. The trainer of this one is 3-10 in the last two weeks and in good nick.

Equally, MARKAZI has only won once since arriving here from France….and that win came on September 19th last year.

I’m of a mind I’ll trust the markets over figures here….dutch the two movers….it’s that time of year.

We have four previous course and distance winners in the six strong field at 2-40pm. It’s a crackerjack of a race and and of the front four on the tissue could win it. The market is currently saying ORVAR – 12/1 > 11/2 but, at the same time, I see no weakness in either ORNATE or ALJADY.

I feel one of that trio wins this but at this moment in time, I’m finding it difficult to say which one but do have a soft spot for ORNATE when he runs here in handicaps. He has form figures in such races, at this track, reading 2, 3, 1 and ran a cracker at the weekend when finishing third to LAZULI, in a Group 3 at Sandown. He was previously a seven length seventh to BATTAASH and before that, was only beaten just over two lengths by that one, at Goodwood.

He might be good enough to hang on to a lead today but the 7/4 isn’t big enough to have me betting he does.

Punters are keen on the front three on the tissue at 3-15pm

  • ROYAL BRAVE – 6/1 > 4/1
  • DAPPER MAN – 7/1 > 9/2
  • KNIGHTCAP – 8/1 > 11/2

Everything that was available at a double figure price early doors, is now bigger and I’d see that trio as being ripe for dutching.

Post Racing members were advised this morning that WILLIAM ALEXANDER was an OMM….9/2 > 11/4. They are still coming for it….now just 2/1 having been backed at all rates since.

STONE MASON is the only opposition on the tissue 5/1 > 7/2 but he has been backed to win twice this season and come up short.

It’s between this pair if the market has anything at all to do with the result of this Class 6 shambles of a race and I’d be with the OMM to beat STONE MASON.

No point discussing the 4-25pm as VALYRIAN STEEL wins that if he arrives with a leg in each corner.

We finish with another superb Class 6 mucky thing and the market again points out two, DOUBLE REFLECTION 11/2 > 7/2, and a right old steamer in FIRST RESPONSE 16/1 > 6/1.

The first named of that pair is trained by the bloke also responsible for STONE MASON and it appears they are looking for an end of season double.

I’ll have a tiny dutch the two movers and have done with it.

Best of luck if you are getting involved this afternoon!
