Horse Experts ... (Aintree)
« on: March 10, 2009, 09:45:26 AM »
... certainly not me (an expert) ... however I was reading the Metro this morning who made the case for the second favourite (Torphicen) in the Cheltenham @ 1.30pm.

Progressive 4 year old, won last two races in lower company - has 8 pounds on rest of field. Has won at the distance but not the course. Jumped very well.

Cousin Vinny is the favourite (unseated rider last - with some novicey jumping) - 10/3. It is a Novice Hurdle (Grade 1) but I don"t like reading that for the favourite.

Torphicen is currently 6/1 on Betfair hard to see that lasting ... not a massive bet but any thoughts?

I"d forgotten it was Cheltenham Festival this week.

Work rescheduled, thanks Louis.   ;D


Can"t see past Cousin Vinny in the first, but what do I know ?

Cheltenham and Goodwood are the only festivals I have a bet on when it comes to the horses.  Here"s my selections for today (for what it"s worth  ;D )

13:30 Cousin Vinny
14:05 Tartak (e/w)
14:40 Possol (e/w)
15:20 Osana
16:00 Garde Chompetre
16:40 United

Day two picks :-

1.30 Parsons Pistol
2.05 Karabak
2.40 Massini"s Maguire
3.20 Master Minded
3.20 Well Chief (to place)
4.00 Franchoek
4.40 Ronaldo Des Mottes
5.15 Shinrock Paddy

Yesterday saw a ROI of 150% after an added bet on forpadydeplasterer.

Another similar day will do.  ;D

Good luck all.

... got a place in the first on Drumcovis which made a real mess of the 4th from home ... aside Parsons Pistol had a lot of pace but jumped terribly.

Won the second with Mikael D"H ... which made a mess of the second last ... Karabak unlucky ...

... going on What a friend - (owned by Alex Ferguson in the next)

Hard to see past Masterminded but I tempted with the 6/4 that it wins but by less than 13 lenghts.

... not got to the 4.00 yet!
