It's a fairly slow news day today, so I thought I'd have a quick fly through the Friday racing using some insights provided by Geegeez Gold. For those not already using Gold, there's also a bit of a special offer at the bottom of this post...
Please note, these are not tips as such, but rather a collection of observations within which you may find something that appeals.
1.30 Tealissio has the fastest speed rating by some margin, and trainer Lucy Wadham is in good form both recently, and historically at the track (three out of four form indicators highlighted on the card). Benefique Royale is one from one at the track.
2.00 Gifford and Cannon have three wins and two places from five runs when teaming up at Sandown. They partner with On Trend here.
2.30 Henderson and Geraghty are masters of Sandown, with a 32% win record since 2009. Their only collective runner today is Broxbourne. She is two from three on good to soft ground (flat and jumps). Hendo's other runner, Hel Tara, is noteworthy due to the trainer's record, too.
3.05 Cowards Close is a solid fit on The Shortlist, with just alacrity for the course to prove. At a bigger price, Ballybough Gorta has plenty in his favour, though recent form has to be taken on trust (new stable after three 'P's')
3.40 The favourite will probably win, but 'Then What?' tells us his last race has had seven subsequent runners with none even placed; and his earlier form isn't working out brilliantly either. As such, 2/5 might be worth taking on. My Renaissance could outrun odds of 66/1 on his hurdling bow. He seemed to be improving slightly on the flat, and his last race form has worked out, albeit at a modest level.
4.15 Nothing of note in what looks a very tricky handicap.
4.45 Coup De Grace is in good form from the flat and has the clear top speed rating. Trainer is in good recent form, too.
2.10 Seek The Fair Land has won six times at the track, and been in the frame in 18 of 35 course starts!
2.40 Charlie Appleby has a 30% win rate at Lingfield, and runs Hills And Dales (2nd on sole course start).
3.15 Nothing of note except that the two favourites have run slow times to date, and could be susceptible to a bigger priced improver. (They could also improve themselves, of course).
3.50 James Eustance and Ryan Tate have a 20% win record when pairing up. Their Major Crispies drops in class. Charlie Appleby's 30% strike rate points to Holiday Magic, a 12 scorer on The Shortlist, too.
4.25 Guards Chapel has won three of ten track starts, and placed on another occasion.
4.55 Embankment was only 5th two starts back but the race is working out well, according to Hot Form report, and he was only beaten two lengths there. Second since, he could go close.
1.45 Brass Monkey is a big priced entry on The Shortlist and might run better than those odds, though the race class is a worry.
2.20 Pam Sly has recorded nine winners from 45 runners at Fakenham since 2009, for a 30 point profit. Bouggietopieces would add significantly to that bottom line if prevailing here. But Capard King's form looks rock solid on a line through Nordic Nymph, and I'd expect he'll win.
2.50 Six wins and two second places from ten starts at Fakenham make Full Ov Beans interesting all right, especially when you consider the other two runs were both unseated rider jobs! Midnight Charmer's speed figure is far in advance of his rivals. And Lucy Wadham/Leighton Aspall (Canuspotit) are peerless at the track, with ten wins and ten places from 35 starters since 2009.
3.25 Pam Sly runs Acertaincircus at her top track, and he might give the jolly the most to think about.
