I’ve had a few days or so off the blog now, as I just fancied a little break from writing. But I did put up Tisbutadream (won at 11/1) and Sobetsu (won at 20/1) on twitter so I hope some of you followed me in on those. They won’t count towards monthly P/L though as they weren’t on the blog. One bet for me on what is actually a half decent days racing by Monday standards.
5.50 – Sky Bet Top Price Promise Handicap – 1m 2f
One straight out of the tracker here in the shape of Buzz, who makes his handicap debut from a mark of 78. He was twice raced as a 2yo, first finishing 5th on debut in what looked a decent enough race won by Big Challenge. He travelled well enough in the first half of the race, but was outpaced before staying on. That was a decent enough debut, but he stepped up on that to score on his next start, in a mile maiden at Kempton. He again stayed on well that day and recorded a fairly taking 2 3/4 length victory. Judging by his pedigree, this extra 2 furlongs here is sure to suit, and that was certainly the impression he gave on both starts as a 2yo. His mark of 78 seems fair enough and I think he’ll go well here.
Selection: Buzz 14/1 EW (Bet365)
