Hennessy Gold Cup 

It's Hennessy Gold Cup day tomorrow and there is a lot of opinion as to the likely victor, as you might imagine.

Lets start with one time favourite Great Endeavour.

Nick Mordin has a very interesting piece highlighting the shortcomings of the UK method of assessing the ground conditions on track.

As his example he assesses the runaway success of Great Endeavour in  the Paddy Power Gold Cup…

I think it was misleading for most bookies to mark Great Endeavour up as favourite for the Hennessy following this run. You only have to look at the horse's record to agree with trainer David Pipe's assessment that the 3m 2f of that race ‘might be a bit far'.

I have to agree with this assessment and see no value in following GE.

So let's assess the others…

Neptune Collenges – Excluded on age and recent form
Planet of Sound, Wayward Prince, Muirhead, Blazing Bailey – Recent Form
Fair Along, Balthazar King, Tullamore Dew, Billie Magern, Qhilimar – Out of the handicap
Beshabar – Needs further
Carruthers – Prefers small fields and heavy ground
Michel Le Bon – No recent form, hard to assess, possible danger
Sarando, The Giant Bolster – Suspect jumping ability
That leaves Aiteen Thirteethree & Wymott. We prefer Wymott who's last run can be excluded after picking up an injury. Set to carry just 10-2, he will also carry our stake. Good luck

There is no post today.

Everyone’s Gone

With Dave Massey away on holiday and now John Burke away to recover from his recent operation there's no experts to help you with your betting today.

So I've got news of a couple of freebies for you, one you may have seen already and one that you're hearing about first.

If you didn't get on Michael Carr's free webinar on Thursday you can still watch the replay here

In this free webinar Michael teaches his 8 keys to successful betting.

The replay will be available until Sunday when it will be taken down.

The second freebie is from Carl Nicholson.

Carl is most popular for his tipping on the ITV races where he goes through the card with a tip in every race that ITV broadcasts.

Starting tonight he will also be going through the card on one meeting every Friday night, and the selections are free to anybody that wants to register for the emails.

You can register here

John Burke left tips for his Victor Value members before he left including…


6:25 – Magnetic North – The 4-year-old relished the good to yielding going when winning at navan 20-days ago. He’s been raised 4lb for that win but he’s going the right way and can defy this new mark if there is some juice in the ground.
