A great two days of action kicks off with a 7 race card. The highlights are the great Cracksman strutting his stuff and the Oaks at 4.30pm.

My best bet of the day is in the 5.40 7 Furlong handicap. Galloway Hills. I was hoping this horse would stand his ground as he's been crying out for soft ground and his last two runs at HQ have excuses even though he ran well. I think this horse will be heavily backed and could go off as low as 4/1 or 5/1 with SDS and 8st 2lbs. 356 are 8/1 but think that won't last long. Good luck whatever you back in the race.

Anyone fancy anything in the other races ?

a shame the price has already been ruined on galloway hills probably for pence as well

To be fair they take quite hefty bets compared to billy and betdull. 13/2 now which is just about value.

I've also received a £25 free bet linked to my bet on this race(must be a promo that hasn't been sent out yet). So that makes it a bit sweeter.

only 2 bookmakers price up and people go in, why not wait till the market is formed with all the bookmakers the horse should be 10/1 on what it has shown

Free bet is on Oaks if you bet over £25 on any other race.

If you can get 10/1 let me know. To be fair I make it a very decent bet @ 8/1. It's 6/1 now.

Like look of Mendoza in 2.00 as well.

Galloway 5/1 now so wasn’t far out on that one.

yes every racing correspondent has tipped it your another hero

Lucky didn’t wait for your 10/1 from the form judge.

well when 2 bookmakers price a race up and put him in at 8/1 they are dangling the carrot, then a few hundred pounds are traded and the price is altered without another bookmaker taking a penny. anyway he has a chance and you are clearly delighted. you clearly read the racing uk tipster and followed him in. the owner of the horse will be delighted with the odds he can now take and i certainly won't be playing now at the odds available

Lol. If you think I time travelled to watch betting lab then you are more stupid than I thought. I’m also sorry the millionaire horse owner can’t get on at 8/1 but I don’t think he really cares to be honest.

You thinking the horse should be 10/1 answers a lot of questions tbh.

Anyway I’m more interested in other learned members of the forum and their thoughts on the racing tomorrow.

Many will think Ajman King is a good thing, and on form and potential he is hard to oppose, but I'd be concerned about the form of the Varian yard. Might even place lay it if the price is stupidly short.
I would have been really keen on Borocco at a double figure price but for the equally bad form of the Balding yard as well.Cry

I am very keen on Brorocco uncle, in fact you need to keep an eye on all Andrew Balding handicap runners at this meeting.  He ran in this race last year and was the most unlucky loser (watch the race if you can).   I think the stable form is turning the corner and many poor runs were not unexpected.  Ground is a bit of an unknown but sire didn't mind it, so worth a chance at the 10/1 this morning.

Cracksman needs to improve with wfa to keep winning Gp1s this year and even though he won very easily last time I don't think that was proof he has. We'll find out more today and I'd take him on at this price if I thought there was a genuine Gp1 opponent but I don't see one. He just needs to run up to his 3yo best to win here so just a race to watch for me with regards to being with him or against him next time.

Yeah I always think it's a pretty testing track when there's any real give.
