Placepot Pointers

Placepot pointers – Friday 22nd January


Last year’s corresponding toteplacepot dividend:
2015: £58.80 (7 favourites: 3 winners--1 placed--3 unplaced)


4 weeks' free access to Geegeez Gold

1.15: Six-year-olds lead the five-year-olds 3-2 via five renewals to date and TRAVERTINE has every chance to widen the gap here in receipt of weight from five-year-old ABBREVIATE.  Alan King's Huntingdon (soft ground) runner up gets seven pounds from Kim Bailey's Southwell winner, a burden which might be beyond the Authorized gelding.  TWO JABS reached the heady heights of 85 on the level, a mark which suggests that Michael Appleby's six-year-old could become competitive at the business end of the contest in this grade/company.
Favourite factor: All six favourites have secured toteplacepot positions via five renewals.  Three clear market leaders have prevailed alongside on joint favourite.

1.50: Five and six-year-olds have shared four of the five renewals to date and in the absence of any older raiders here, five-year-old EDWARD ELGAR can land his hat trick under similar conditions to when recording his Leicester victories.  Fellow vintage representative MERCIAN KING is expected to offer most resistance ahead of course and distance winner RENOYR.   
Favourite factor: Three of the six market leaders have secured toteplacepot positions, statistics which include one (11/8) winner. 
Market Rasen record of course winners in the second race:
2.20: Venetia Williams held three options earlier in the week whereby the declaration of ASO appears significant with the beaten odds on favourite offered a good chance to atone for recent losses.  A beaten favourite on two of his last three starts, Venetia's six-year-old raider can score from BALLYALTON and KALANE from my viewpoint.  Hat trick seeker (and winner of four of his last five assignments) Bushe Du Noel might fail to represent value for money on his introduction to British racing.   
Favourite factor: This is a new race on the Market Rasen card. 
2.55:  Horses carrying 11-7 or more have won the last three contests, whilst runners burdened with a minimum weight of 11-4 claimed five of the six available toteplacepot positions during the period.  Sunny Ledgend will drop into the 'inferior' sector of the weight via a jockey claim in all probability, which leaves HINDON ROAD preferred to GOLD INGOT and SILVER EAGLE.  A winner over hurdles off an official mark of 123 in the past suggests that this current rating of 112 over the larger obstacles should produce a victory for HINDON ROAD, sooner rather than later.  Alan King appears to have found an ideal opportunity for his Antonius Pius gelding to resume winning ways.  If the weight trend is to be breached, THINGER LICHT could prove to be the joker in the pack.
Favourite factor: Three of the six favourites have claimed Placepot positions via five renewals, statistics which include two successful market leaders from a win perspective.
Market Rasen record of course winners in the fourth race:
1/1--Thinger Licht

3.30: Six-year-olds have secured five of the seven available toteplacepot positions to date, statistics which include two (15/2 & 4/1) winners. Vintage representatives are around the 11/4 mark to extend the winning trend before form is taken into account, with CROSSPARK, MIDNIGHT SHOT and AWAY FOR SLATES all boasting each way/toteplacepot claims.   
Favourite factor: Two of the four market leaders have finished in the frame (exact science), though we still await the first successful favourite from a win perspective, albeit the biggest priced winner to date was returned at just 15/2.  
Market Rasen record of course winners in the fifth contest:
1/5--Rumble Of Thunder
1/10--Phare Isle
1/3--Palm Grey (C&D winner)
1/1--Great Link
4.00:  Although they were only winners of modest events last time out, it seems inconceivable that GELNARM, course winner MILLY BALOO and TANARPINO will all finish out of the frame, especially given the 'make up' of this dead eight event.  For the record, the trio is listed in order of preference if you are looking for the winner of the race.   
Favourite factor: The two favourites to date have secured gold (5/4) and silver (7/4) medals alongisde Placepot positions. 
Market Rasen record of course winners in the toteplacepot finale:
1/1--Milly Baloo
1/6--Molko Jack
