Meydan World Cup Night Preview + 28/1 Pick

Hi all,

Newbury and Kelso provide the best of the action in Britain this afternoon. With the ITV4 cameras covering the best of the action from both venues. Plus, as an added bonus they’re also taking three races from World Cup Night at Meydan.

For those of you who prefer the flat, like I do, the Irish turf season gets underway at the Curragh this afternoon. The highlight of an eight race card is the latest renewal of the Paddy Power Irish Lincolnshire (3:35).

I won’t be covering the Irish Lincolnshire in today’s preview, but I have a couple of strong fancies which will be available to Victor Value subscribers here.

Inside today’s main piece I’m looking at the Meydan card. Nothing against the Newbury & Kelso cards which are competitive cards in their own right and will provide some bets for me but It’s the Meydan action that gets my pulse racing.

Newbury Selection

Hi all,

Not the worst Friday of the winter by any stretch of the imagination.

Newbury’s final two day meeting of the jumps season gets underway this afternoon. The next time the track will be in action is for next month’s Greenham Meeting on the flat.

Soft ground means that Newbury card has attracted decent field sizes for some competitive handicaps.

Up to a Musselburgh it’s the start of the three day The Go North Festival Weekend. With the action moving to Kelso tomorrow and concluding at Carlisle on Sunday.

Over the three days there are nine Go North Series Finals each with £30,000 in guaranteed prize money.

Inside today’s main piece I look at the best of the action from Newbury and Musselburgh. Starting at the Scottish track.

Ludlow Free Tip

Hi all,

The Cheltenham Festival and the week leading up to it are intense. So, a couple of days off do wonders for the old brain. Well, they do for mine.  The festival is the most stressful four days of the whole year for a tipster. If you offered them the chance to end the week level most would snap your hand off.

Thankfully the racing calendar is mercifully free of high class jumps action for the next couple of weeks. Indeed, Saturday’s action in Britain is, to be charitable, low key compared to what we have been used to of late. If you want the better quality racing for your bets. Then you’ll be looking to Meydan where its World Cup Night and the Curragh where the new flat season gets underway.

Inside today’s main piece I’m looking forward to Saturday’s big mares only handicap hurdle at Newbury. Plus, I preview today's three mile handicap chase at Ludlow
