Lewis for Texas Win

We have a couple of tidbits I want to share with you today, the first is a piece I read in yesterdays Oddschecker newsletter which makes a lot of sense…

F1 heads to Austin, Texas this weekend, and Sebastian Vettel can win a third straight drivers title if he scores 15 points more than Fernando Alonso.

With that in mind, he'll be doing his utmost to avoid a DNF and stick to minimum-risk overtaking. The value lies elsewhere, and it's Lewis Hamilton in his second-to-last race for McLaren who appeals. The car was faster than the Red Bull in Abu Dhabi, and with the desire to break the American market a key feature in Hamilton's move away he'll be itching to win the inaugural US Grand Prix in Austin. Click for full preview and big-priced tips.

Secondly we have a selection from Mark Foley's Trainer Trends along with his breakdown of why it's a selection. Here's Mark's message…

Good morning.
Al Jamal did the business nicely yesterday and Atlantis Crossing was just touched off at a big price.

There is one selection today and it is a recommendation

Thouwra 6.45 Wolverhampton 6/1
Dam won the Lowther and 1000 Guineas; she´s yet to produce a real top-notch runner, with multiple 7f-1m2f winner (including here) Benandonner (106 RPR at peak) the pick off her offspring so far; sire around 17% here and trainer 16% with first-time out juveniles in 2012.

Saeed Bin Suroor
2 yo runners on the AW tracks.
Favourites and 2nd favourites had a high strike rate and were profitable to follow.
The debutants had a good record: Yes
Runners ridden by Ted Durkan had a good record. No

All the best Mark
