There are certain events in life that are inevitable. Like death, taxes and Jose Mourinho getting sacked and banking another £30m pay-off. Other events you don’t expect to see of a lifetime, like Trump’s wall, or Ryanair getting an award for good customer service. Slightly less likely than either was Tony Collett having a winning night at Central Park. But it happened.
While Rab McNair or Patrick Janssens couldn’t have found a winner in a swimming pool full of winners, Tony ‘T’m Feeling Lucky’ Collett called up a £50 win on 11-8 chance Mairead Brave for an £18.75 profit. Remember this day.
Peter Harnden returns tonight to prove that he isn’t a one hit wonder, as he takes on the man in form, ‘Big Mark‘. We also have a special guest, a great friend to this site, the Belly on the Telly himself, Gary Wiltshire. Under normal circumstances we don’t allow reverse forecast betting as part of the contest, but as national treasure, Gal has his own rules.
Dotty Dot & Salacres Badger (R2 T5/T6) Going through the card tonight I like the look of this race for one of my reverse forecast bets. If Dotty Dot was a human I’d say she likes a little bit of company, I make Salacres Badger the danger so a nice £50 reverse forecast will do for me , £50 Rev/Forecast).
Liam Aspin writes:”Tonight I’m taking on hotpot Craig Samuels who I know won’t lets us down. Our other tipster for the evening is Megan Barnard. Well, with her (and mine!) record of selections lately ‘lucky dip’ springs to mind!”
The final selection for Megan is Treaty Bill (R9 T4). Megan said: “Treaty Bill used to be a lot better grade however hasn’t been in the best of form so I think the grader has relented and gave him a much stronger chance tonight” £50 win
Craig starts the night with Send In The Gold in (R10 T2) for Irene Barnard. Craig said: “Tough card yet again. Irene’s bitch is young and open to improvement, had a rough ride last time out but trap 1 is not the quickest into its stride and should give it plenty of opportunity to lead up on the rail, if securing first run would be very surprised if anything can catch her!” £40 win
For Craig’s final pick he’s gone for kennel star Quiet Man (R12 T4). Craig said: “My second pick is quiet man in the last, Bruno as he is known in the kennel has got serious pace to the bend not the quickest out of the boxes but once he hits the sand he can run! It’s all about getting round the bend in front in this top grade. On paper he can lead the inside 2 dogs and set sail for home!” £40 win
