D G Tips Review Day 81
Sgt Mick Review
Another profitable day with one winner in the form of Pivotal Flame and two places in the form of Attain and Strategic Heights.
Gothic Empire was never put in the race. Harley took a distinct pull after leaving the stalls and he could never get competitive after being held up in last by 2l’s. Considering he beat Bristol Missile by around 10l’s last time out and that horse finished 2nd today with no difference in draw and weights would suggest the connections have a different day in mind for this horse.
Attain ran a nice for 3rd and each way returns. This horse is so consistent around Lingfield, the problem is he never gives the handicapper a reason to drop him in the weights.
Karam Albaari was a shade disappointing but he has probably backed up too quick since last week. Pivotal Flame however won very nicely and that was the best result possible at 8-1. I go on a lot about the importance of a saver and this once again backed it up. It was really nice to see Paddy Bradley powering down the outside putting everything into the ride showing just why I rate him so highly as an up and coming apprentice.
Strategic Heights ran really well for 3rd and each way returns. Bit of dangerous riding from Kieran Fox on Mossgo turning for home has probably cost him the win. Yorkee Mo Sabee clipped heels and was pulled up injured, very sad to see as he was travelling very strongly at the time and would of gone very close.
I don’t usually tip on a Sunday but there is a good card from Chelmsford with some horses running I have been tracking so I am going to get involved.
Tips for Sunday 21st January, 2018
2.55 Chelmsford – Lazarus 3-1 widely available/Topmeup 5-1 widely available
1pt win Lazarus won 4/1 Return £50
0.5pts E/W Topmeup Fin Unp -£10
Lazarus ran a really e ye-catching run last time at Kempton. He was drawn wide that day and had no choice but to be ridden with restraint. He came with a strong late run to finish 3rd in what looks a very hot race for the grade. That was a return to form and if he now is starting find his feet he could be absolutely thrown in here. Jack Mitchell was quite clearly taken by the performance as he keeps the ride and travels to Chelmsford for just the one ride. It all points towards a big run from Lazarus. Also worth keeping on side is Topmeup in here. We were on him last time out when he would have gone close but for being hampered at a crucial stage. That form line has been franked today by Pivotal Flame so at an each way price he looks a solid second option. Rossa Ryan also rides negating some extra weight.
3.55 Chelmsford – Dynamo Walt 10-1 widely available
0.5pts E/W Won Return £72.50
An interesting sprint for a Sunday however this can go the way of C and D lover Dynamo Walt. Shaw’s yard have hit form recently and this horse showed clear signs last time out that he was working back into good form. Not only does he take a drop in grade tomorrow but he also has been handed some help from the handicapper who has dropped him 1lb which puts him 1lb below his last winning mark that came over this C and D. Stall 2 is obviously a great draw and with pace-setters Come On Dave and Swendab in here it should suit his running style.
4.30 Chelmsford – Fareeq 6-1 widely available/Fantasy Justifier 3-1 widely available
0.5pts E/W Fareeq Won Return £46/ Fantasy Justifier Lost -£10
Two in here make plenty of appeal. Fareeq has re-found good form in recent starts and now returned to 6f’s here should take plenty of pegging back. He has stall 8 which is a good draw for this horse who likes to be ridden prominently. The draw position gives him options and as long as he gets the start right then he should have little trouble crossing over. He is well handicapped, in good form and has a talented claimer negating 7lb. Also worth keeping on side is Fantasy Justifier, Luke Morris needs some winners to keep his title hopes in command and this horse looks to have a fantastic opportunity. He probably would have won last time out had he got a clear run so the fact he has been dropped 1lb looks very lenient. That was a better race than this and from stall 2 should take all the beating. Luck will be needed which is why we have thrown Fareeq in there as the next best but with luck this horse surely wins this. This form line was franked today by both Strategic Heights and Bridge Builder.
