Cue Card 3/1 Without Djakadam

CUE CARD 3/1 WITHOUT DJAKADAM- HILLS

With Djakadam, last year’s second the chief rival, in our view, to Cue Card, there is a great bet with Hills (CLICK HERE) at 3/1. So id Second to Djakadam, we get paid out at 3/1. He is 4/1 to win the race. Value saver this. You can get 11/4 without Don Cossak, but I am happy to take this one on as well as Don Poli.

Our advice for the race remember is….

3.30 MAX BET- CUE CARD 4/1 to Win

In fact regular members will be on at a BIG ANTEPOST PRICE, much bigger than 4/1. Looks a different horse this season, following the win operation. Paddy Brennan has also been superb on this horse. he will pick up a £1million bonus for this race if he wins following the Betfair Chase and the King george Wins. Kauto Star was the last horse to do that, I would love to see this horse win here. He is one of the greats. Now no Vautour who romped home in the Ryanair, the task is a bit easier. Great gold cup this year though!

The best bets today are:-

2.50 MAX BET- BARTERS HILL
3.30 MAX BET- CUE CARD
5.30 MAX EW- EASTLAKE

Race by Race for Friday…

1.30 CLAN DES OBEAUX EW 16/1

Almost an impossible puzzle to solve, so a tentative selection here. It is the triumph hurdle and I thought the form of his last run where he was second to a nice Henderson horse (not running here) is the best on offer.  So at the 16/1 I like this as a VALUE EW PLAY!

2-10 JOHN CONSTABLE EW 16/1

Another value play in what is an equally difficult race, the County Hurdle. has been in good form and has a light weight here, near the bottom, so is worth a sporting play at the big odds.

2.50 MAX BET- BARTERS HILL 4/1

One of the toughest horses in training, just keeps on winning and gives his all. He has won his last six outings, just keeps on finding and the truth is we do not know yet how good he could be. He has been put in a perfect race for him, he looks a rock solid bet, this is a MAX BET. BARTERS HILL!

3.30 MAX BET- CUE CARD 4/1

In fact regular members will be on at a BIG ANTEPOST PRICE, much bigger than 4/1. Looks a different horse this season, following the win operation. Paddy Brennan has also been superb on this horse. he will pick up a £1million bonus for this race if he wins following the Betfair Chase and the King george Wins. Kauto Star was the last horse to do that, I would love to see this horse win here. He is one of the greats. Now no Vautour who romped home in the Ryanair, the task is a bit easier. Great gold cup this year though!

4-10 NO BET

Although I would LOVE to see Victoria Pendleton win. I have said all I have to say about this, I really hope she proves the idiots wrong!

4.50 EW BET MR MIX

Not really a race we advocate going overboard in, conditional jockey race and you pay your money and take your chance, tentative selection would be Mr Mix.

5.30 MAX EW BET- EASTLAKE 16/1

This is handicap plot, make no mistake, looks primed for this and at 16/1 we can end this on a HIGH!

Good luck, let’s end the week with a BANG!

Fineform Cheltenham Day 3

Thursday is World Hurdle Day and we have some BIG BETS for you for Day 3 to keep the pressure on the bookmakers. Firstly take a look at the best bets in 60 seconds, here on YOUTUBE

There are THREE BIG BETS to Focus on…

2.50 VAUTOUR
3.30 THISTLECRACK
4.50 LIMINI

This is advised as a treble and the MAX BET DOUBLE advised as

2.50 VAUTOUR
4.50 LIMINI

Here are the bets race by race for Day Three Of the Cheltenham Festival….

1.30 JLT CHASE- OUTLANDER EACH WAY

Another for Mullins but this time in the Gigginstown colours. The drying ground may be the doubt but if that proves no problem this one looks a very strong EACH WAY BET!

2.10 PERTEMPS FINAL- CUP FINAL MAX EACH WAY

This is one for Nicky Henderson and Barry Geraghty. The Seven Barrows contingent are running well with Altior winning the Supreme and My Tent Or Yours overcoming a long absence to run well behind Annie Power in the Champion. A mark of 139 is workable and at double digit odds we are on a profit, even for a place!

2.50 RYANAIR CHASE- VAUTOUR MAX BET

Looks to be a BANKER BET, rerouted from the Gold Cup. The market suggests there is NO WORRIES about his well being, he is on form, much better than these and at 4/5 he is one to pile in to. Another for Mullins, Walsh and Rich Ricci.

3.20 WORLD HURDLE- THISTLECRACK MAX BET (NAP)

This is our BEST BET OF THE WEEK, the drying ground has been talked about as an issue, this is the day they change course and water (probably) so no worries here. The way he has won his last two suggest this is a very top quality stayer, in the mold of Big Buck’s and if bookmakers go out to get this one then they could take a HUGE HIT. A superstar horse in our view!

4.10 Handicap Chase 2m 4f – JOHNS SPIRIT

This is a tough puzzle, but there is no question this horse has been aimed and will be well prepared for this. Jonjo targets the festival, obviously, and this one is worth a bet because it could be well handicapped.

4.50  MARES NOVICE HURDLE- LIMINI- MAX BET (NEXT BEST)

This one looks another for Walsh / Mullins / Ricci. Another that is well ahead of the opposition and could make a mockery of this, that is our view. Want one to pile in to big style this is the one. looks a MONSTER! For Fineform there is NO DANGERS to LIMINI. If the price is EVENS anywhere unload the big guns!

5.30 KIM MUIR THE GIANT BOLSTER EACH WAY

Misses the Gold Cup for this. No surprise as it had no chance against the best in the business. However in this race he has the ability and could certainly figure in the places here. At the prices he is worth a bet, but don’t go in too big!

Good luck, we will be back tomorrow for the Gold Cup!

Carl Harris’ Cheltenham Day 2

Superb day yesterday, the treble was landed about 8-1. The MegaMax Bet won, Annie Power and the Next best, Vrrom Vroom Mag won. The loss of Min cost me over £5k, but it wasn’t unlucky like Annie Power in 2015, Altior was like really good, top class. We pointed it out as chief danger! But a great day, I won BIG at Cheltenham. You can read my Cheltenham Review HERE of Day one.

I am off to collect my winnings from York, I had the treble in cash with a few bookmakers! I will also be on Talk2meRadio again around 11am with Jon Gaunt. You can LISTEN HERE

DAY TWO ALL THE BETS….

Had a great response to THE FINEFORM INFORM, no Waffle Just Winners in 60 Seconds. WATCH HERE ON YOUTUBE, we got it right day one! Here is Day 2…

My Plays today,
THE MAX BET DOUBLE….
1.30 Neptune Novices- YANWORTH- MAX BET 11/8 (NAP)
3.30 CHAMPION CHASE UN DE SCEAUX- MAX BET

TWO ROCK SOLID HORSES. This is my Power Play today, I am focusing on these two. I would also have the treble with NO MORE HEROES, it boils down to a match with MORE OF THAT….
THE MAX BET TREBLE….
1.30 Neptune Novices- YANWORTH- MAX BET 11/8 (NAP)
3.30 CHAMPION CHASE UN DE SCEAUX- MAX BET
2.10 RSA CHASE- NO MORE HEROES- MAX BET

fineform_black_logo

Todays bets in full….
Day Two and Fineform Racing are back with all the winners for Wednesday, here are the best bets in 60 seconds…WATCH HERE ON YOUTUBE

1.30 Neptune Novices- YANWORTH- MAX BET 11/8 (NAP)
Yanworth looks a proper horse! Indeed on the form we have seen Yanworth is the most likely winner. He has looked so impressive on his last two starts winning Grade 2 events at Ascot and over just a furong less at this course. Yanworth is so impressive that he can NOT be opposed! Paddy power are 11/8 best price. We make this the Megamax bet of the day! This could win in some style!

2.10 RSA CHASE- NO MORE HEROES- MAX BET
This is a great race with NO MORE HEROES bringing Grade 1 winning form to the party, yet is not favourite, that honour falls to MORE OF THAT. Fineform is all about form and the best form in the race is by far, NO MORE HEROES. The price is also value, with these two looking to be head and shoulders above the rest! Best odds here.

2.50 CORAL CUP – ARBRE DE VIE EW 12/1
There is a danger that I am going to be the president of the Walsh / Mullins / Ricci fan club, with yet another horse in the Ricci pink here. Look this is another near impossible puzzle to solve BUT we have this one top rated and the 12/1 is a nice price to get value, win and / or place. Best odds here.

3.30 CHAMPION CHASE UN DE SCEAUX- MAX BET
For most of the winter this has been a ridiculous price, but it is getting to a decent price, 4/5 the night before and climbing. If this goes evens then I can tell you the Fineform team will be unleashing the wallet! How this could go off evens is a dream, but it could happen. Simply too good for these and if the price is too short for you, then add it to multibets. Best prices HERE.

4.10 CROSS COUNTRY- NO BET RACE FOR FINEFORM.

4.50 FRED WINTER EACH WAY JALEO 16/1
This is our MAX BET EACH WAY PLAY of the day. No question this drying ground will help and off a handicap mark of 134 we think he is well treated! Max bet each way, we will get a nice profit should we place, a win will be a big pay day! Best odds here.

5.30 CHAMPION BUMPER HIGH BRIDGE 12/1
Another trained by John Ferguson, who is packing in to be the head of Godolphin at the end of this season, but this horse is VERY NICE and could land a festival win for Mr Ferguson. There are plenty of nice horses here in this race, so caution advised. Reports have been very good from a good source of Fineform’s about it’s work! Nice price bet. Best odds here.

Cheltenham Day One Review

Carl Harris take a look at the key events from Day one at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival.

best seat

I had the best seat in the House for Cheltenham!

I was up early and walked the dog, back in time for the Morning Line. Rich Ricci was the special guest and he dropped a bombshell, which amazingly the Betfair market already knew about, that Vautour would NOT run in the Gold Cup. There was some uproar about that, but it is his horse and he can do what the hell he likes, no matter what anyone says! I got the cards done for Wednesday, was interviewed on the Jon Gaunt show (listen here). I rathe rnailed my colours to the Annie Power mast and hoped to God the New One Wouldn’t win! I had a sandwich and got ready for racing!

I had the big four Mullins Acca but really fancied the three without MIN, as the race looks full of top quality horses! let’s see how I do. The roar went up and we were off for another year….

SUPREME NOVICES HURDLE

Min was all the rage to land this for connections who had won this the previous three years. Min made a few mistakes but there are no excuses. Altior was too good and looks a proper horse! If this one stays over hurdles he could give Faugheen a race, Nicky Henderson says he doesn’t know yet.

The time of this race was mighty quick, given the official gong to good to soft, this is awesome. Altior slaughtered them. Bookies are offering 8/1 for the Champion Hurdle 2017, it would be folly to get involved now. VERY IPRESSIVE, could be a superstar! Nicky Henderson winning trainer and another top class ride by Nico De Boinville.

THE ARKLE
Douvan was hammered by the punters. 2-7 he was at the post, this would make him the shortest price winner ever of the Arkle chase. The form told you everything you needed to know. This was Douvan’s race to lose! Reports from the paddock was that Douvan is an outstanding looking horse!

The biggest certainty of the week for many, and so it proved! Returned 1-4. Vaniteux was unseated at the last but nothing was anywhere in the class of Douvan, we learned little from this, other than Douvan is what Rich Ricci described as a monster. Ricci said he could be anything, he could be one of the best horses of the modern era. WILLIE MULLINS SAYS HE IS THE BEST HE HAS EVER HAD!

rich ricci

When you own a horse like Douvan you can get away with the suit Rich Ricci was wearing!

I must say that personally I think it is great to have Rich Ricci in racing, he loves it and is living the dream, he is certainly successful as an owner! He has shaken things up!

The Ultima Handicap Chase

Looked an impossible puzzle to solve! I put up Beg To Differ and had £50 on at 12/1, hoping his jumping held up! he took a false step and unseated on the flat! NO LUCK for us there!

Not a race for the faint hearted! Good win for Pipe and Scudamore. UN TEMP POUR TOUS who won very well in deed, from The Hollywell.  Champion Hurdle next…

The Champion Hurdle

ANNIE POWER went off FAV, I nailed my colours to the Annie Power mast and made this my bet of the day. It was also the Fineform MEGAMAX BET of the day. She is a mare remember, the last one to win was the great Flakey Dove. No after-timing from me I said Annie Power would win and I was absolutely adamant about it. I risked egg on my face and plenty of ribbing!

WOW! That is all I can say and very well done to connections going for it, not only a brave decision to supplement her, a great training performance and a superb ride by Ruby Walsh. Make no bones about it we have just seen a superb Cheltenham Festival moment. She has gone from Champion to Legend!

Not only a Champion Hurdler but she broke the track record. Enough said!

MARES HURDLE

Vroom Vroom Mag was a really short price, all the multibets, trebles and lucky 15 liabilities were rolling over to her. I am one of those, I posted my betting slip on twitter, £100 terble, I also had it online and have a trixie. I had a couple of grand resting on the outcome of this race!

JOB DONE! We have seen a superb day for Rich Ricci, Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins. We are witnessing greatness.

I have made plenty of money and it is time for me to pack in for the day! I will update the last two races later on!

It’s off to Sheffield to watch Viking Jack!

 

 

Jon Gaunt Cheltenham Day One Interview

I was on the Jon Gaunt Show earlier today. Of course I have worked with Jon for many years and I am delighted to see TALK2MERADIO doing so well.

Here it is, have a listen.

If youw ant to find out more about Talk2MeRadio then visit their website HERE

Paul Nicholls Cheltenham Runners

With his contract with Betfair Paul Nicholls is a stable that communicates very well with the media. One owner once said to me I find out about my horse in the media! Tongue in cheek, but you do get some great info from Ditcheat!

here is Paul Nicholls talking about his string for Cheltenham, with the Racing Post, CLICK HERE for YOUTUBE.

This is a good overview, but for much more indept analysis from Paul Nicholls he goes through each of the four days…

DAY ONE- YOUTUBE

DAY TWO- YOUTUBE

DAY THREE- YOUTUBE

DAY FOUR- YOUTUBE

Nicholls has it all to do in almost every race against Willie Mullins. Will he get a winner at all this year? of course he has the added interest of having Victoria Pendleton riding Pascha Du Polder in the Fox Hunters! It is going to be interesting if nothing else!

Here he is talking about Saphir Du Rheu- YOUTUBE

If Victoria Pendleton wins no doubt the claims will be it was all a set up! Forget hard work, mental strength and a will to win, no it will all be a set up! there are some idiots about!

Nick Henderson Cheltenham Runners

Nicky Henderson may not have the Cheltenham Festival Squad that he had in previous years, but he still has a strong squad to take to Cheltenham in 2016.

Here he is talking to the Racing Post about his hurdlers. Click HERE to watch on YOUTUBE.

Of course SPRINTER SACRE is one horse that will attract plenty of attention. This is what Henderson has to say, CLICK HERE for YOUTUBE

He says it would be a dream, I think it is a step too far, but I will be shouting him home, I won’t back him but it would be a fairy tale and I will say this, Nicky Henderson is favourite ever jumps trainer. If he was to win with Sprinter Sacre he would for me be the only one who could manage it!

My Tent Or Yours is making his reappearance in The Champion Hurdle. This is an interesting interview with Nicky Henderson…CLICK HERE for YOUTUBE

Willie Mullins The Cheltenham Main Man

Willie Mullins holds by far the biggest chances at next week’s Cheltenham Festival. Tell you something you don’t know!

Well I don’t have to because Willie Mullins has done it for us, in this superb At The Races Video, Willie Mullins talks through his squad. CLICK HERE to watch on YOUTUBE.

Willie Mullins has a squad of over 50 horses going to Cheltenham! WOW, that is huge. Did you know Willie Mullins have NEVER WON the Cheltenham Gold Cup! Can Djakadam win it this year? He was denied last year by Conygree, and we were on HUGE!

Certainly Mullins holds all the aces, take a look at the video, get set for the greatest show on turf!

Cheltenham Preview- Gordon Elliott

There have been some dire Cheltenham Preview evenings. Some of them spend longer explaining who the panel is than talking about Cheltenham!

There are so many people on panels who go under the “pundit” tag. That means they are NOT punters, NOT owners and NOT privy to any inside info. Last year I went to the SKY BET preview in Leeds and Rich Ricci was on the panel, I have to say he was the best I have seen in 10 years. I couldn’t make London for his appearance at the Betbright preview.

I put Chelltenham Previews in to three categories, The Good, The Bad and The ugly. As a punter I am interested to hear what trainers, jockeys and high profile owners have to say. Pro punters are not going to give anything away, so that leaves pundits. You become a pundit as a rule when you can’t make money in racing doing anything else. I can count the pundits on one hand who I respect, but yes there are a few, only a few! Bookies reps I don’t mind, although some of them pedal blatant BS, when you can’t get £2.50 on a 6/4 shot, them saying they have laid £20k bets just makes me laugh!

Here is a good one, Gordon Elliott is well worth listening to, have a listen…CLICK HERE
