Double Dutch, 1st April 2015

Double Dutch, 1st April 2015

Double Dutch, 1st April 2015 The first leg yesterday summed up the way it’s going at the moment, with Mrs Peachey leading all the way under a great ride from David Bass, only to be nailed on the run in, eventually finishing a two length third. Of course, our other pick was second. A new month […]

Stat of the Day, 1st April 2015

Stat of the Day, 1st April 2015 It was a case of so near, so far yesterday. Or, more correctly, so Neary. Tom Neary, a 5/1 chance, led pretty much all the way, and had his main market rivals beaten turning in. Only the 7/1 outsider of four remained over the last two hurdles and, as […]

Double Dutch, 31st March 2015

Double Dutch, 31st March 2015 A crappy start to the week with the first leg bombing out at the hands of a significantly supported runner from a big yard. Winner Massagot had been 9/1 early, opened up 7/1 on course, was backed into 9/2 and won well. That scuppered that, so it was of academic […]

Stat of the Day, 31st March 2015

Stat of the Day, 31st March 2015 Midnight Belle was disappointing on Monday – I actually really quite fancied her – eventually finishing a well beaten fifth of nine at 10/1, a point longer than nominated. She’d drifted out to 14’s during the day, something which never especially bothers me (within reason). We close out a […]

Double Dutch, 30th March 2015

Double Dutch, 30th March 2015 Well, two doubles from six last week, culminating with a second ‘tiddler’ on Saturday. We won’t get rich backing those, but the aim of the game is to catch a drifter whilst insuring the position with solid fancies. Saturday saw the two jollies, flagged at 6/4 and 13/8, win at […]

So the turf flat season has started.  The traditional Doncaster fixture was less curtain-raiser and more curtain twitcher as nosy National Hunt and all weather neighbours peered out at the strange interloper in their midst. Two meetings for each of the winter staples subsumed Donny’s eight race card and, while some doubtless rejoiced, I have to […]

SotD: 30/03/15

Stat of the Day, 30th March 2015 Pagham Belle’s run on Saturday in many ways typified Stat of the Day’s week: two good recent wins but finished a bit flat. She came there like the winner but either didn’t stay, was tired after recent exertions, or couldn’t defy the penalty. Most likely a combination of the […]

Double Dutch, 28th March 2015

Double Dutch, 28th March 2015 It’s been a dull week here on Double Dutch, and those happen as regular players will know. Yesterday’s double was sunk by the tactical disaster of Boogangoo, the sole pace angle, fluffing the start completely. Our pair, both of whom were nominated for their ability to gun down fast fractions, […]

Stat of the Day, 28th March 2015

Stat of the Day, 28th March 2015 It was a case of “from the sublime to the ridiculous” on Friday, when 6/1 nomination Azure Glamour drifted out to 8/1 at the off, and was promptly tailed off and pulled up with half of the race still to go. Clearly, when we bet a horse on the […]

Double Dutch, 27th March 2015

Double Dutch, 27th March 2015 Well, let’s be honest, that wasn’t much of anything yesterday. But it did at least stop the rot, and claw back a few shekels from the past couple of days. Sbraase looks to have a lot of talent but may be unable to match that with resolution: he swooped by […]

Stat of the Day, 27th March 2015

Stat of the Day, 27th March 2015 It’s all very well banging on about value, but unless you’re any sort of judge of it, the words sound hollow. Luckily, both Chris and I are at least some sort of judges. And even more luckily, the value sermon was rewarded immediately, despite the horse actually drifting even […]

5 Good Bets for the 2015 Flat Season

Doncaster hosts the first flat turf meeting of the year this weekend and, ahead of the Brocklesby and the Lincoln and the rest, I’ve picked out what I think are five good bets for the season. Time inevitably will be the final arbiter of how good they actually are, but hopefully all have some sort of robustness to […]

Double Dutch, 26th March 2015

Double Dutch, 26th March 2015 More agitation here at geegeez towers after One Life Live It took leg two yesterday. Yes, of course he was my other possible in that race, having taken solid ‘line of blue’ support on the odds comparison site at the time I was writing things up. That he drifted out […]

Stat of the Day, 26th March 2015

Stat of the Day, 26th March 2015 They say you can’t eat value and, if you’re hungry at a given point in time, they’re right. But if storing up nuts for the winter, then value is the only way to go. Before you think I’ve been boozing with Eric Cantona (again), let me clarify. Wednesday’s selection, […]
