As going still not "clear" for me to rate races, then not going to rate any races today.

Was a frustrating day yesterday with my computer problems, and did not help me for focussing on races yesterday......but GOING description made it exceptionally hard to rate the race yesterday.(DAY 1 was easier to rate races as going was GOOD TO SOFT)

Will just give some comments on races and will restrict my bets and stakes.

Will try to post at least 10 minutes before each race.

Cheers the noooooo

1.30 RACE

This type of race tends to be won by a horse that is 7-1 SP or less. Market  tends to get it "right".

Even the 2nd horse tends to be under 8-1 SP.

A 20-1 one won in 2013 when going was GOOD TO SOFT, and a 33-1 sp one was 2nd in a race in last few years......

The going being in between makes it a harder race to get winner on, though very very likely it will be in top 4 favourites in market.

So I will be doing EXACTAS with top 4 favs winning  and with the 2nd in forecasts being BALKO DES FLOS for small stakes.

Also backing BALKO DES FLOS to be in first 4 placed in with good trainer, and lightly raced and odds reasonable for such a place.

Small bet on BALKO DES FLOS to win......can't resist itTongue Out

My best chance of a return is the PLACE bet
