D G Tips Review Day 74
Sgt Mick Review
One winner has cut our loses to just 0.7pts on a poor day today so far. Really annoyed at myself with Milansbar, as I said with the Welsh National the form was all there but he was a 20l’s last after a few furlongs in that race and un-seated with about 30l’s to make up on the field. I should have kept the faith, my own fault.
Still another great week with around 10pts made whatever happens with the last. We have only given 12 tips which is a lot less than normal but our strike rate has been very high which is great with 5 winners and 2 places.
Very poor start the day. Reckless Endeavour was very below par, he should have been beating Kasbah who was 3rd so his performance was pretty shocking. Leo Minor blew the start but lets be honest I should have known that given Fran Berry was riding.
Diese Des Beiffes ran very well for 5th. I can’t lie I am pretty disappointed in the ride Mitch gave him, held up in 2nd last and was given loads to do. The difference between James and Mitch so clear, James had his mount well positioned throughout whereas Mitch didn’t. 4 wide throughout and given far too much to do. He would of gone very close without this, he will have his day. Who knows maybe this was the plan all along, now Henderson has a well handicapped horse for another big handicap hurdle later in the season.
Karam Albaari won very nicely. Harley was superb on board and the horse has actually won very easily.
Granville Island travelled so strongly into the race. He jumped upsides the winner 2 out and looked all over the winner but I’m afraid this horse can’t jump and doesn’t find anything off the bridle. Massive gamble but what can you do with a horse like this.
One to go at Wolverhampton, it has been well backed but that’s normal. Let’s hope he goes well.
As always the racing is pretty poor tomorrow as a result we will be leaving it alone.
We have a very good card from Wolverhampton on Monday and also a pretty strong card from Kempton on Tuesday which is unusual but a very welcome start to the week.
