Weekend Selections: Teaminittowinit (10th June)

Last weekend didn't go to plan for the team, first off my selection which was a non runner then a few places and sixth.

Pretty sure one of these weeks we will hit the jackpot. Just the three this week.


SAT 240 BEV – UNITED FRONT was thought worth a sit by Buick LTO and acquitted himself behind a well backed, likely improving, Gosden filly. Although better on sand, he is clearly capable of a win on turf in this grade against more exposed opposition. Ugo Gregory will likely go forward and give a lead along with Outrun the Storm (both are dangers) and there are a couple of others that could push the pace. From stall 2, UF is well placed to get a good position just in behind and Murphy will be keen to go one better than his championship rival. Floral Splendour is one I have my eye on and can’t quite work out if she’s a potential winner being warmed up, a moody filly or just not very good? Have a look to see what you think. Ascot Adventure and Beauty Choice can’t be discounted but do not inspire right now, Satin Snake has it to prove on turf and Miss Britain can certainly be involved but has a tough draw to give a PB froM. GL GL !!! 🍀🤞🍀🤞

United Front 5/2 1st


3.20 Catterick: Fiftyshadesofred 7/1 6th

Fiftyshadesofred looks seriously well-handicapped if she can put her best foot forward. She’s a tricky filly, yet she has run two strong speed ratings in two of her last three races, both over 7 furlongs.

Last time at Ayr she overcame a sluggish start and went forward to lead at a red hot pace. She found plenty under pressure and was only beaten late by two rivals from off the pace.

Before that she didn’t stay a mile but two runs back ran seriously well at Chelmsford over 7 furlongs. That looks like her trip, and the fact she ran to 65 and 64 speed ratings now the last two times over this trip, on two different surfaces, gives her form credibility.

It should be ideal that there’s a lot of pace to be expected here in this race. She has a good draw to follow it, as long as she starts well. That should help her to settle.

William Pyle is a competent 7lb claimer. This weight allowance can only help; on the other hand she’s a tricky ride. So some risks are attached.


16.45 Haydock JUST BRING IT 15/8 6th

The favourite in this and completely unoriginal but feel he is worthy of that. Looking at his last run, he was held up off the pace and responding to pressure when asked for his effort but found a wall of horses in front of him and the jockey had to stop riding.

Once he had the gap to come, he did come with a flurry but the bird had flown and nothing got into it. He showed plenty to that point and looked like he was moving well when his effort came to a halt.

That was the C2 Silver Bowl Handicap over this course and distance and he should find this a lot easier now dropped to a C4 off the same mark as for that effort.


This looks a very winnable affair to me for him and if I was not in such bad form, I would contemplate adding to my usual stake for this one as he strikes me as a well handicapped horse on the back of that effort and there is an obvious pace target in here with prominent runners aplenty.

He did show signs of a standard Cox runner who was keen early on and learned to race with experience,  he certainly would not want to be in front too long as he was on penultimate run. Looks set up nicely for him here and all he needs to do is settle off the pace and kick when required like he did last time out. A repeat performance of that effort last time out should see him getting competitive here, let alone the obvious scope for improvement.

Advised bet: Trixie 

Finishing Positions: 1/6/6

Thanks for reading and good luck.
