Saturday's Tips: Inittowinit (13th April)

You can't say we aren't consistent anyway as Equinefutures gave us another winner when Auric’s done the business for him at 7/2, hopefully we can get a winner or two again this week.


No 2-year-olds again for me this week but the trackers are building up and I'm confident I can get a few winners this season.

16.25 Yarmouth 13 April 2024

Fighter Command looks pretty decent for Gosden after finishing second on his debut at Kempton in December. Related to Gosdens Bouquet who won on her 3-year-old seasonal debut and rated 94, be no surprise to see the Dubawi colt go one better here but I don't do things easy, I'll throw what could be a bigger priced dark horse in, I do say could just remember that. EBEN ZAABEEL who made his debut at Newmarket last September, not fancied that day at 18s, the Sea The Stars colt wasn't given a hard time, he was drawn low that day which looked to be a disadvantage with three of the first four all high numbers. This is a step up in trip here and looking at his dam Yazzy who raced middle distance in France at a decent level I don't see why it should be a problem for Eben Zaabeel, I just hope he does himself justice. Trainer Hills thought well of this colt last season and I hope Even kickstarts his 3yo career. I imagine a big price so it will be each way for me personally. I think the betting will be the key here, if well backed I would be more positive but if drifting obviously it's a big negative, you never know but the stats don't speak well if Eben drifts, as I write this Eben Zaabeel is 14s.




A big field but I am not sure there’s much any of them can do if RADIO GOO GOO does what comes naturally here.

It was a terrific effort LTO at Kempton where she did a little too much too soon and the form is strong (Al Barez winning having run better than finishing position previously versus Ferrous, Knebworth & Bosh).

There’s definite potential in some unexposed 3yo’s but they will have to be well forward to beat their senior this time of year.

From the inside trap and likely not much pressure on the lead, Rossa Ryan can pop her out from stall one and control things from the front. 

She’ll be hard to pass and may yet to have her finest hour! ….. GL GL!! 🤞🍀🤞🍀🤞



6.00 Yarmouth: BERRY CLEVER

This looks like an ideal opportunity for Berry Clever to get off the mark after a highly promising seasonal reappearance at Southwell recently. 

He was significantly hampered soon after the start and couldn’t move closer to the pace as a result, which wasn't ideal in that race. Nonetheless he travelled well into the straight and made initially quite strong progress against the dreaded inside rail.

One can forgive him for getting tired in the closing stages and you would hope he can improve from having this run under his belt, in any case.

Still winless, but the gelding was somewhat ‘unfortunate' in a couple of his runs as a juvenile last season. There is enough in his profile to believe he's capable of winning a race off his current mark. 63 could prove a little bit lenient, now that he also moves up in trip. 

On turf, only his second run on grass, and over a mile, which often brings out improvement for Expert Eye offspring, and  dropping slightly in grade too, with De Sousa once again on board, he looks an intriguing horse in an open contest. 

The rain is the one question mark I have, if it turns the ground properly soft. It's that lingering doubt I have whether he'll get home in that case. But the pace may not be overly hot, so it's worth the risk.



17.30 Yarmouth 


Not much to choose from, if I am strict in my discipline and not straying from my set criteria. Anyway, onto this one. He won this race last year on his reappearance and is only 1lb higher this time round. He followed up later on last year over this course and distance, taking his record here to three wins from six starts. It came in a fairly hot C3 handicap and the two behind him are now rated 91 and 94. I don’t think a mark of 75 should really be hindering this guy if he again is ready to rumble straight up. Also intrigued me Michael Bell sends this one to the course and also Hector Crouch ( combo won last year and 21% SR since 2023 ) comes for the one ride. It will be an expensive day out to go home with nothing and suggest they are again going for the prize. Not too fussed about tactics here, he seems versatile enough to race as they see fit on the day. Over the minimum trip, you either go with or go home and with a few question marks hanging over some of these, I do not see why he can’t be getting competitive in this off what again is a handy enough looking mark.



Good luck and thanks for reading.
