Andrew heads to Kempton (all-weather), Hamilton and Chelmsford (all-weather) for his four selections on Tuesday, August 16th. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:
BAMBOOR (system – William Haggas, gelded 3yo newcomers on the all-weather)
In the past 15 years, William Haggas is ten from 36 with gelded three-year-old newcomers on the all-weather for a profit of £26.75 to a £1 level stake at SP (expected winners only 5.51). BAMBOOR, who cost 100,00euros as a yearling, can give his in-form handler yet another winner.
THANKUAPPRECIATEIT (system – Fountain Of Youth, turf, recent run)
Progeny of the sire Fountain Of Youth do well on turf after a very recent outing and had we simply bet all those who last raced between one and 15 days ago we’d have landed 27 of our 163 bets and made a huge profit of £308.75 to a £1 level stake at SP. THANKUAPPRECIATEIT, runner-up at Ayr ten days ago, can go one better in this restricted maiden.
ODISSEO (system – Marco Botti, 3-4yos in all-weather handicaps when fresh)
Marco Botti’s all-weather handicappers often bounce back to score after a break, especially the ones aged three or four. Since the spring of 2016, those who were returning from a break of at least 40 days won 41 of their 213 starts (19.3% strike-rate) for a very healthy profit of £105.16 to a £1 level stake at SP. ODISSEO was only sixth at Newmarket 59 days ago but he’s 0-5 on turf and is best judged on has all-weather form figures of 112131 (4-6), with the first defeat by a short head. He’s been gelded since we last saw him and there could be improvement to come.
AUGUST PLACE (system – Marco Botti, 3-4yos in all-weather handicaps when fresh)
AUGUST PLACE, well drawn in stall 2, is a qualifier on the same system as stablemate Odisseo in the 3.00 at Kempton (see above). The three-year-old gelding made an encouraging reappearance when an 18-1 fifth at Wolverhampton in June and probably found the race coming too soon when trailing home last over the 9.4f trip at the same venue a couple of weeks later. The cut back to 1m will suit and he’s been freshened up by a six-week break.
