I’m hoping that we grizzled regulars will be joined today by 16-y-o Samantha Martin and 19-y-o Luke Keena who are twitter regulars and avid racing fans. Samantha writes the best researched and most detailed big race previews I’ve read. She’s a future star in racing journalism. You’ll find Samantha’s Rein It In Racing blog here. It’s a team blog and Luke Keena introduced himself on it in the best possible way when tipping Sirjack Thomas a 50/1 winner at Galway on Tuesday. Luke followed up yesterday by landing his nap at 15/2 – Clonbury Bridge. He also tipped first race Galway winner Farout as well as two who just failed to hold on: Gin on Lime and Blackstair Rocco.
I’d love to see Samantha, Luke and the rest of the Rein it In team here regularly.
To yesterday’s Hitlist: Dirty Northerner sprang to form with a take-your-eye-out nap in the shape of 11/1 winner Ottoman Emperor. Jamie napped 11/4 winner Aysymmetric, and The Steelman came back on the board in stunning fashion napping 8/1 Goodwood winner Whendealisdone and also tipping Wilderness Girl at an advised 9/4. Brilliant tipping from the veterans.
The blog’s nap disappointed yet again. I’m hoping to battle back with Run For Oscar in the 5.00 Galway at 15/2. You might recall a couple of weeks ago I mentioned the value in Skybet’s enhanced places when trying to land win/place multiples … well, I’m having another go today at nailing a win accumulator and/or several place accumulators with the following perm at Goodwood:
1.50 (7 places) Just Hubert: Rajinsky: Withhold: Elysian Flame
3.00 (6 places) Path Of Thunder: Bedouin’s Story
3.35 (4 places) Arecibo: Bataash: Glass Slippers
4.10 (4 places) Passion And Glory
5.20 (5 places) Something Enticing: Wink Of An Eye
Perm 4x2x3x1x2=48: all EW – 96 bets at 25p.
I will also have a £1 win single on each
It’s worth repeating that although this blog was set up as a gathering place for regulars on The Guardian racing pages, all are welcome here to participate or just to read.
Also, pardon another reminder about listing your winning tips each day in the July Winners thread: there were no entries in it today, so I had to go through all tips to check. Would today’s winning tipsters kindly update the thread, and future winning tipsters, please remember to complete it? It will act as a fascinating reference point way down the line.
