Monday 6th August
There is a nice mixture of action today with a couple of decent Irish Fixtures (I think it is a Bank Holiday there?) at Cork and The Curragh, and a big field race at Cork with enhanced place Odds and a nice 6 furlong Sprint at The Curragh, give us some real value opportunities. It has been blindingly hot down in Devon over the weekend, once eary cloud has burned off, so despite rain last week; I think Newton Abbot will ride a little firmer than "Good" so we will have a dart there in the Long Distance race at 4.50, see if we can take on a Skelton favourite, which seemed to be the thing to do yesterday at Market Rasen. The Flat Cards at Windsor and Ripon look moderate and uninspiring, and as welcome as the "ladies jockey only" meeting is at Carlisle, an annual event, it has had a habit over the years of throwing up some very strange results.
We have selections from Michael G at Cork, from Placespotter at The Curragh and Robin at Newton Abbot.
