We have racing today at Goodwood in the UK and The Curragh in Ireland on the Flat
and National Hunt action at Chepstow in Monmouthshire and Limerickin Ireland.
I think we are now at the "tipping point" between the transition from Flat to National Hunt;
although the Flat winds down to Doncaster on the 5th November, the BHA have effectively
made next weekend at Ascot (Champions Day) the final qualifying day for the Trainer/Jockey
Titles, and although there are some good Flat meetings between next Saturday and Doncaster;
it will very much be the time when the National Hunt season gathers momentum with Aintree
and Cheltenham, both staging Fixtures on the weekend of the 22nd/23rd October.
We will be mindful of the fact that whilst one season is winding down and the other is
starting up, that will pose a lot of variables, so vital for us to assess which yards are
"at it" in both codes and which horses respectively thrice at the tail/start of their seasons,
a time of risk for punters but a time of massive opportunity too!
With that in mind we have one strong suggestion today and a suggested accumulator,
some horses in there at nice each way prices, who meet the Flat/NH criteria above
but who are not full tips due to the time of the respective seasons.
G FORCE ran an eye catching race last time out, he has had a wind operation
and back in Listed Class he gets ideal conditions, a nice mark still; a perfect
draw and if he is back on a road to even 80% of where he was, he has to
capitalise today, in that context 7/2 looks outstanding value.
There are some cracking races at Chepstow, many too close to call at this early
stage of the season and a similar view at Goodwood where many horses have been
on the go for a long time but a few nice form lines from both in the Lucky 31.
We will be back tomorrow with a look at four Flat Turf Fixtures.
