Lewis Jones topped off a profitable week by finding the winner of the Northumberland Plate at 6/1 yesterday at Newcastle. He’s got two more bets for today and is advising putting the two selections in a juicy double….
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! That was the cry from yours truly as Angel Gabrial duly went and bolted up in the Northumberland Plate yesterday at 6/1. Richard Fahey’s horses are running out of their skin at the moment and the way this one landed a supposedly competitive handicap was very impressive.
The three point each-way stakes has boosted this column back to over +100 points of profit. It’s been a great year and I hope many of you have made a packet.
Moving on, and today is the day the overated Noble Mission will finally be beaten. After opposing him every time in regent months with no joy, Flintshire will be able to end his winning run in the Grand Prix de Paris at Saint Cloud. In his past two runs, Noble Mission has been given an easy lead on soft ground, where he has been at his best.
Today will be different. The problem is with Noble Mission he doesn’t like to battle and if a horse gets in and around him he’s not the same animal. Flintshire chased home Cirrus Des Aigles in the Coronation Cup and his trainer Andre Fabre has reportedly got him at 100% for this valuable price. He simply has to be the bet at 13/8.
SUNDAY’S RACING TIPS (SAINT CLOUD & CURRAGH)
Closer to home and it will be a big surprise to see Ambivalent not play a huge part in the finish of the Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh. Last year’s winner has been as good as ever this season, winning at York before finishing third in the Coronation Cup against the boys.
Roger Varian’s star filly is a game sort who is tough to pass when going things her own way and the race make-up suggests that things will drop right once again today. At 5/2 she is a cracking punt.
Get on the Flintshire-Ambivalent 8/1 double with a one point win stake.
