Weekend Selections From The In It To Win It Team (25th March)

It's been a few weeks but let's look back at our last selections.

It was normal service resumed for me as my selection Flame Spirit disappointed, I was surprised after the money came and he ended up a warm favourite, definitely a head scratcher for me, to make matters I was wondering about selecting the eventual winner Totnes but needed support, obviously I posted the night before so wasn't sure. 

The boys did alright again as Equinefutures Beautiful Crown went down by a neck. Not to be out done RacingTictac gave Toussarok who got beat a short head. It was up to Prohorseracing to get us out the shit and he did select 9/2 shot Sir Rodneyredblood who won very well at 9/2. I really need to start chipping in here after another disappointing selection.

Before this week's selection I just want to say Cheltenham was brilliant with plenty of exciting races, even for a hardcore flat fan like myself I've enjoyed it, I've had seconds galore but as they say if the fun stops then stop. The bookies must have been laughing at my bet on Thursday, I was feeling lucky so I did a each way Super Heinz, absolutely rubbish. Well, I got the last winner and looked at my winnings, 36p. Safe to say I won't be doing that bet anytime soon.


19.00 Wolverhampton 25th March 

I don't make life easy for myself as this looks like a nice fillies stakes race. Godolphin have a few here including Joyful Act for Appleby. Nice pedigree, related to Blue Creek and Flag Festival who both won for the trainer. Tranquil Rose has a lot to live up to being a half-sister to none other than Multiple group winner Native Trail. Charlie Appleby won this race last year with After The Rain.

I'm going to hope I can get an each way price on the Karl Burke runner DUBAI CRYSTAL who's had the experience of a run already. The Fastnet Rock filly made her debut at Newcastle in September last year, slowly away that day and no match for the easy winner Obelix who had experience on his side but Dubai Crystal stayed on for second without getting anywhere near the seven length winner. It's a hopefully rather than confident bet here. If drifting would be a negative. 

Dubai Crystal 12/1 6th


145 Ling - ELOSO ran a blinder LTO when going forward and does stay this trip. Reapplication of visor seemed to help and LTO was also a step down in grade to Class 6 (which he remains in today). Should get the lead and if Christian H can get the fractions right over this step back up in trip, it will be hard to pass. Not much between a few of the others - Pablo / Aniso and Where's Tom (who I’d prefer). Hopefully Sausalito will make the market but may find this tougher than the stakes races. Wurlitzer is in FT Blinkers, they may sharpen him but he looked pretty one paced (did win LT in a Class 6).

Eloso 14/1 5th


15.57 Curragh INSINUENDO 1/1 1st

Back on the turf in Ireland, happy days ;) It has been a long time coming and many have been waiting for it. 

Insinuendo is the top rated horse here and could take some beating in my opinion. She only lost out to Mother Earth in this race last year in the dying strides and I don't think they are as good as that here. 

She subsequently pushed Luxembourg all the way in the Royal Whip Stakes here, who later won the Irish Champion.

I think her reserves in stamina could be a real asset here and she can take this lot out of her comfort zone, Agartha has a penalty for a G3 success and many of the other 4yo are in open Filly/Mare company for the first time. 

She goes in the ground, and she likes to go from the front and think this looks a good opportunity for her considering she goes well fresh and she could well be looking to go one better here.

One more selection to follow:

Advised bet Lucky 15 

Pedigree watch. 

If I get time I'm going to try and add a few newcomers with nice pedigree's, doesn't mean they will win its just something I'm interested in this season 

As I mentioned in the race my selection runs in Tranquil Rose has a lovely pedigree being related to Native Trail, definitely one that could be nice 

Finished 2nd 5/1

The first 2yo race in Ireland is on Saturday and Adrian Murray runs the Wootton Bassett colt Bucanero Fuerte now owned by Amo Racing and Giselle De Aguilar. Related to two nice types, the Richard Hannon trained Beat Le Bon and Wooded who now stands stud after a successful career in France winning a group 1 on his final start. 

Finished 1st 3/1
