Monday's Horse Racing Info (6th May)

My selections yesterday ran pretty well so I can't even be disappointed with that even though I lost. I said Newmarket is tough and I was right. My first selection was River Seine for Karl Burke, great pedigree and I managed to get 8s, late money as I'd hoped and off we go as River Seine was out like a rocket, a touch keen but bounding along nicely, I could see she was tiring as the impressive winner Mountain Breeze loomed up with a furlong to go, game over as the Appleby filly put the race to bed, River Seine hung on for second in what was a decent effort. Mountain Breeze looks Ascot bound.

Next up was Tropical Storm for Andrew Balding, another who I took 8s early on, with a run under his belt already and support in the market I was quietly confident. Symbol Of Honour was slowly away as Tropical was tracking the pace moving nicely, go on my son as he quickened up the last furlong, I could see The Actor inching closer and closer, the line was coming, Tropical holding on, noooooo as Levey got one last push out of The Actor, great race even though Tropical was beaten a neck. 

On to today, it looks pretty tough, a couple of outside fancies and a few cliff trackers.

13.55 Beverley 

It's a class 2 race but doesn't seem to have much depth to it, doesn't make it any easier but it's trying to find some value against the Karl Burke favourite. One angle I'm looking at here is trainer owner combo, worked for me a few weeks ago with Jayvee for the Brian Ellison and Mr P Boyle combo, incidentally Jayvee finished ahead of Larchill lass and Call Me Harswell here at Beverley. Sybaris Jewel is a cheap purchase at 4,000 euros. The pedigree is not shouting at speed which is concerning but the trainer knows best. Brian Ellison has started off on fire with 2yos, actually two from two so far 22 and 16/1 winners so I'm waiting for 20 plus and play a small each way. Azuinthejungle is related to another Nigel Tinkler runner Maybe Even Never who won first timeout in 2021 at 125/1 for these owners, can lightning strike twice, I very much doubt but as Nigels debut runners usually need the run but you never know.

Sybaris Jewel 9/1 3rd

Azuinthejungle 50/1 Unp

Bath 14.50

Hot favourite here in Star Anthem, could hose up and probably will, one tracker Siegen for Richard Hannon, I imagine a nice type and if the favourite fluffs his lines could take advantage. No value so no bet.

Siegen 3/1 5th

15.10 Windsor

Who doesn't have a cliff horse? I probably have a few and Monkey Island is one, very well regarded last season for Brian Meehan but to be honest hasn't done anything, maybe I'm being unfair as the last race was pretty hot with the winner winning a listed race and the second fourth in the Guineas, it's Monkeys third run today so always the concern about the handicap route but with Levey in the hot seat I'm hoping they are trying, it's one of them horses that you've followed that you want to be decent but could end up a pig, had a little dabble at 20s as he's been gelded and looks a weaker race.

Monkey Island NR

14.35 Windsor

As above for Miletus another third timeout, I had a decent bet last timeout and was pretty disappointing, another well regarded last season and could be handicap route, no bet as yet as still unsure.

Miletus 16/1 1st

Good luck on a fine bank holiday Monday.
