Friday’s Racing Tip: City Of Angkor Wat to go one better at Wolves

It’s been a dry week for Lewis Jones in terms of winners but small stake sizes mean the profit and loss column hasn’t taken too much of a battering as we’re still revelling from last Friday’s pay-day where we hit +36 points of profit in one day. Lewis is targeting the evening action at Wolverhampton as he goes in search of a winner to boost the kitty for the weekend….

No luck yesterday as the Paul Hanagan angle we tried to exploit didn’t come to fruition. In fact, Tansfeeq is becoming a very frustrating horse to follow and his early maiden performances are well worth forgetting about as he has failed to build on that promise. Cross him off your notebooks.

Moving on today and it’s all rather low grade stuff unfortunately, so stakes will be low. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find a winner with CITY OF ANGKOR WAT in the Bet totejackpot Apprentice Handicap (6:00 Wolverhampton).


Here we have a horse that looks at home on an artificial surface.

He ran well enough on his first start on the Tapeta when beaten less than four lengths into sixth at Lingfield in June on his handicap debut but stepped it up a notch to stay on well to finish a clear second behind a well-backed and well-handicapped winner in the shape of Flipping. He’s on the same mark for this contest and the 7/2 looks very backable with two point win stakes.

Meanwhile, the brilliance of Tony McCoy shows no signs of waning despite his advancing years. Not only has he broke his own record for the fastest 100 winners in a jumps season when Arabic History took the final race at Newton Abbot last Thursday evening, but he’s in a purple patch of form that is bordering on inhuman.

3131F451311313131F12 – these are McCoy’s finishing positions since Monday, quite remarkable, huh? He has 110 winners this season now and has five well-fancied rides at Bangor today to add to his haul. Here are his rides:

Cyclone in the BANGOR-ON-DEE (Overnight), Sight Loss Shropshire Novices’ Handicap Hurdle (2:20)

Never Never in the BANGOR-ON-DEE (Overnight), Novices’ Hurdle (2:50)

Whistling Senator in the BANGOR-ON-DEE (Overnight), Genesis Wealth Management Handicap Chase (4:00)

Prince Khurram in the BANGOR-ON-DEE (Overnight), Derek Burridge Golf & Racing Trophies Maiden Hurdle (4:35)

Walter De La Mare in the BANGOR-ON-DEE (Overnight), Utilities Connections Management Ltd Handicap Hurdle (5:05)

Fill your boots with doubles and trebles!

P+L = +127.97
