‘You’ve let the kennel down. You’ve let me down. But most importantly, you’ve let yourselves down’
The audio record of Mark Wallis driving home from Romford on Friday night. Seven days after his glorious £500 winning night, the multi champion trainer tipped three of his own runners, and drew a -£100.
None of which should take away the glory from ‘Mr Percentages” Jason Gander. He racked up a profit of £162.50, this third winning night in the last four. His only losing night was the occasion when we suggested Jason and Nathan Hunt had been copying each other’s homework. With Nathan having even managed to put the bok on 1-3 chance Pink Osteria, I think we now know who copied who! So that is a -£100.
Meanwhile it is beginning to emerge who is brains behind Salacres. Having put Peter Harnden in his place earlier in the week, Big Mark Pierrepont was at it again on Friday. He will argue that he feels hard done by having seen both his selections plummet to odds-on, but £50 punts on two 10-11 winners produced a £90.90 profit. As for Terry Urquhart and Alan Bellis – they’ve just enrolled in punting school, sitting next to Peter Harnden.
A great card again at Hove and two accomplished judges of open racing. Assistant trainer Craig Morris and well known owner Billy Boyle go head to head. Can imagine Mark (-£100) Wallis watching this one with interest.
Galloping Moon (R1 T6) Back to her happy hunting ground . Like the make up out wide. Onr and three to take each other on and for her to stay out wide and take it up coming home . £40 win.
Following a disastrous Tuesday night, the Sheffield trio were all sampled and checked over by the vet. He couldn’t find anything wrong. Maybe we need a different vet.
Just the two runners for the kennel tonight Geelo Mini Bee has been in fine form since racing re start but think the grader has her measure now. She goes in A3 tonight where Dreamy Liamy (R3 T6) will be my first selection of the night. He was second in A2 to Geelo Love last week and now finds himself in a A3. He’s a dog that will do it from behind but should still turn handy enough tonight the only wide seed should see him swoop late to win with some ease in this line up £50 win
Our second runner Geelo Buster (R4 T2) will get the vote in this D2. He did it all wrong last week coming away last and still finding a way through to get up on the line. Am hoping far a better start tonight should see him handy. Think he has every chance to go on and win this £25 win
My third selection Paradise Duchess (R7 T5) was not at all disgraced first time up in A5 and will take some beating now eased to A6. She has fantastic early pace and is surrounded with very slow starters she should be making every post a winning on. The main danger to be Rossmur Charm (T2). A winner first time up after arriving from Belle Vue and stays in the same grade, could still be open to improvement £25 win.
Another interesting 12 race card tonight at Sheffield where I will trying my best to give you two winners rather the usual one.
The first selection tonight is Seomra Dancer (R5 T4). John Walton’s bitch is having only her sixth start tonight and she’s been coming along nicely. She a greyhound with good early pace and looking at tonight’s opposition she should make all. She has a recent 4.36 sectional on her card and if in the same form tonight she has a fantastic chance to build a race winning advantage from the boxes that the others may struggle to cut back. £50 win
The second selection has to be Dreamy Liamy (R3 T6). Whilst I greatly respect both Coney George (T1) and Courtmac Regatta (T2), Barrie Drapers dog has recently been in A1 company. Dropped last time to A2 last time he finished second and tonight the son on Droopy’s Jet finds himself dropped again into A3 and this is definitely his easiest assignment for a while. It looks a good opportunity for him and we shouldn’t miss out. £50 win
After a very bad Tuesday night, and no look in running hopefully I can find a few winners to make up for the loss.
Looking through Saturdays card many times, I feel there is some very competitive races and a good card to watch.
Tonight have I have decided to go all in on Jacks Joel (R2 T2). Looking trough this race several times I feel this dog is nicely pitched in between two ‘slow away’ dogs and hopefully can get on the bunny and pull away from the field. I appreciate this might be a short runner so I am hoping he gets enough lead to win the race. £100 win
