There is a real Autumnal feel to the weather in Staffordshire this morning and a feel that the seasons are changing too, with Jumping at Newton Abbot and Perth, and although both are now "summer jumping tracks" you feel that the plates are spinning back in to the direction of the jumping game very slowly. There are some decent Flat Fixtures to come, including the Doncaster meeting this coming week. Today the Flat action is at Brighton and Chelmsford (AW).
We will focus over the Jumps today with 3 decent Handicaps with plenty of runners to get our teeth in to.
The selections today are from The Professor and Placespotter at Newton Abbot and from The Advisor at Perth
Those are the tips for today. David had a decent placed horse at Ascot on Saturday and 3rd and 4th in the deep mud at Haydock. We had a decent 3rd in the Opener at Doncaster yesterday, when I think the results indicated the Going was a good bit better than Good to Soft. The unexposed Rhosneigr ran very poorly though and the frustration was exacerbated when Framley Garth (in Tracker and referred to in write up) was placed. A frustrating weekend on the horse therefore especially when the analysis was accurate in terms of the logic but as always, its what happens on the Track that counts, however convincing the argument for horse 'a" over horse "b".
If the horses were frustrating the two other elements of our Sports Tipping Portfolio continue to astound. Kevin found another European Tour winner in Matt Fitzpatrick and a 200/1 shot who he layed off but also tipped to be top 10 at 20/1 for a superb profit. We have the Leader too in the US in Justin Rose, and 2-3 other in contention. Rain stopped all play yesterday there and more forecast today and if it is declared a 54 Hole Tournament we will do the US/European Tour double for the 3rd time this summer. Superb stuff from Kevin.
The Speedway GP tips alternate between David and myself and we have found the winner of 7 of the 8 Rounds and some at BIG prices and loads of placed efforts too for each way returns. PATRYK DUDEK won this weekend, tipped at 11/1 by David and with Greg Hancock also placing another excellent return after a 22/1 winner last Round. I know from mails received that an increasing number are having a dabble and making very nice profit on these FREE TIPS and to those who aren't I'd simply make the point that a 16 runner Field on 2 wheels is no different to a 16 runner field on 4 legs, the sport is nothing like FI (which some seem to measure all motor sport by) as all machinery is basically the same and most meetings are decided on pure ability on the day; totally unlike the boredom of F1 these days. There are 2 Rounds left and we are also in a VERY STRONG position with the start of the Season Tournament picks.
The Speedway tips will move over to the new dedicated site shortly in preparation for 2019. It will then be "monetarised" as I have a major UK Tipping Portal eager to market it and to get it out to their huge Client bank for 2019. We have also signed "exclusive rights" for a major Global and European provider" for Poland specifically for 2019 and that can include translation in to various languages. This will mean all the grunge of Admin etc is done by someone else, they will charge more than double what we would, so SP2A Speedway will make a nice return. The bulk of this will be used to support and sponsor a stable of 4-5 of the best young Talent in the UK and in return that will lead to "brand awareness" that will we hope and expect raise the profile of SP2A in general, and allow us to keep pricing AT or below current levels, to the benefit primarily of those solely interested in Horse Racing.
However as we have ALWAYS PROMISED - Speedway tips for any SP2A Clients will always BE FREE as long as you are a Client of SP2A; in 2019 and beyond.
I have major news updates on The SP2A Racing Club and also the updated RESULTS and MEMBERS Paddock Suite and will outline those in a dedicated and separate e-mail sent tomorrow afternoon, tomorrows tips will be out at the usual time of around 8.30am
