Make My Day, Punk (Plus Preview & Tips) 27th April)


1.30 Haydock: 

Play 4 to Score At Betway Novice Stakes (Plus 10) (Class3) (3YO only.

It could be a nice day on Saturday for owners John and Tanya Gunther and trainer John Gosden. Make My Day makes his debut for the successful team and I will be watching with interest to see if this son of Galileo can at least make a pleasing debut, being by Galileo I would imagine the trip and ground will suit just fine. 

Owners John and Tanya have two horses with John Gosden the first being the top class Without Parole (Pictured) out of the mighty Frankel, who’s won a list of Group races in what has been a great career so far, and they also have She’s Got You who is another potentially good horse, finishing second on debut and then going on to win by seven lengths on her next start. 

3.15 Fillies Novice Stakes (Class5) (3YO only)

Thanks Be for Charlie Fellows ran twice as a 2-year-old finishing 5th both times, interesting she had a Group 2 Rockfel stakes entry last season. 

5.45 Doncaster: Maiden Stakes (Class 5) (2YO only)

Ocasio Cortez had a Class 2 entry the other week but runs here instead for trainer Richard Hannon and owner Mr K Sohi, worth a market check. 

6.15 Maiden Stakes (Class 4) (3YO Plus) 

Lyndon B runs for the George Scott stable, he had two runs as a 2-year-old and was fancied both starts, showing promise despite running green. I haven't given up on this Charm Spirit gelding as he was entered in a Listed race sometime last year. 

4.35 Ripon: Novice Stakes (Class 4) (3YO only) 

Sky Cross is another horse I hope starts his 3-year-old career with a win. This Cape Cross colt, trained by Mark Johnston and owned by Mr Jaber Abdullah ran twice as a 2-year-old, winning the second time of asking at 5/2 favourite but the interesting thing for me is he was entered in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes and the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes but didn't run in both. 

Review:I mentioned the Gosden trained King of Comedy last week on my blog and even though he was no price to bet, he looks a horse to follow after an impressive performance at Yarmouth, staying on strongly after a ding-dong battle with the S Bin Suroor trained Land of Legends who ran a great debut race, the pair pulling 8-lengths clear from the third placed Edarrat. 

The Saturday Trixie:Battle of the tipsters(well not sure we can call ourselves tipsters to be honest), It works as follows, three of us pick a selection each week and write a few lines on why we fancy it, then I will do an update each week to see who has made the most profit or who is simply the worst tipster out of us, I will also do a small stake Trixie each week.

Sam: Horse racing enthusiast. 
Aaron: Horse racing know it all. 
Craig: Love flat racing, Maiden or Novice Stakes. 

Week 1 

Craig: 4.35 Ripon - Sky Cross. As I stated above he had some nice entries last year and hopefully strengthened up over the winter, he looks a typical Mark Johnston front runner and I just hope stepping up in trip won’t be a step too far for this Cape Cross Colt. 

Sam: 4:10 Sandown - Black Op. The 3rd run back over hurdles. Ran ok on the first run back over hurdles before flopping at the festival but the ease in grade and trip should suit and should go very close. 

Aaron: Black Corton - 2:25 Sandown, comes into this after a string of 2nds, but won 2 Grade 1’s last season, needs to jump more fluently than he did at Kelso last time, but he’s got Bryony in the saddle who’s just back from injury, they both get on well with each other, should be thereabouts. 

Let the battle begin and good luck boys. 

Thanks for reading
