Horse Racing Tips: Don’t Knock Beau
After proofing my tips for several months on Betting Gods, part of my service has now been encompassed under the banner of “Big Race Bookie Busters”.
Thanks to all the members who’ve been backing all my tips for the last few months – especially those who’ve paid the £4.95 for the first months paid trial out of their winnings.
Today Big Race Bookie Busters is bringing members two well-fancied tips from Newbury.
However, I won’t be deserting those of you love your free tips completely – and I’ll still be dissecting one of the weekend’s big races absolutely free – and bringing you an analysis of some of the big meeting such as Aintree.
Today’s analysis and free tip comes from Kelso.
Liz Adams Memorial Chase, Kelso, Saturday 2.15
Run over 3 miles and two furlongs this race provides an ideal opportunity for ten decent-class horses who bypassed the Cheltenham Festival.
Has been given a chance by the handicapper, however he has to prove that he truly stays up the Kelso hill over this extended distance. The stable’s runners haven’t exactly been setting the world on fire this week either.
Yet to finish out of the first three at the course and his chase mark is 1lb lower than the mark he won the Cleeve Hurdle off last year. Drying ground probably not in his favour – but no forlorn hope if his jumping holds up.
Knock A Hand
Seven pound higher than for his latest Carlisle win and would probably prefer softer ground.
Was stuffed on his only run at the course though, admittedly his trainer’s string were very much out of form then. Up 6lb for a Sedgefield win in what was a lower-class race – and the jury’s out on this one.
Decent enough course form but would probably prefer softer ground and this is a better class race than many he’s run in.
Harry The Viking
Nearly won the Betfair National Trial at Haydock last month, just missing out to Lie Forrit, who he was also second to over this course on his previous run. Shorter trip and drying ground maybe not ideal but not without hope.
The Last Samuri
The youngest horse in the field definitely has the most room for improvement but the form of the McCain stable remains an issue with just two winners from their last thirty runners or so.
Isla Pearl Fisher
After 8 wins it might be that the handicapper has the horse’s measure – at least in this grade which is a little higher than he normally runs in.
Won a hunter chase on his last run over course and distance but might not get the easy lead he got there.
Never better than fourth in three runs at the track and no obvious reason why he’ll improve to take this.
Plenty of ifs and buts but I’m willing to give Knockara Beau a chance to prove his class over a course that tends to bring out the best in him – and he’s an each-way price at 16/1.
Knockara Beau 1 point each-way @ 16/1 (Boylesports)
