Well I picked some day to start! Its probably the worse card for betting on in a long while, but sure something has to win. Few horses caught my eye, theres only about three races a fully sane person could have a bet on to be honest but Sonnium in the 6-45 was high on my list today. He wouldnt want the ground to be any quicker than it might already be and weve had two super days weather here so will hold off backing him, he would be my next best though.
Also thought Crooked Throw would be a fantastic lay in the 6-15 at around the 6/4 mark, but looking now its more likely to go off around 5/2 and its a weak race, the price is a big high to lay now, thought about backing All About Timing each way with Paddy Power at 5/1, looks a bet to nothing but again its a hard race to sort out. All About Timing is in good form and knows how to win, which is half the battle in races like these.
But I've gone for Gleanntan in the bumper at 8-50. Ran a cracker the last day at Punchestown, the bookies have Corskeagh Shadow as second favourite on their lists and she had that one behind her at Punchestown, and if shes rode a bit closer to the pace today its hard to find something to beat her. Wouldnt be too afraid of the Mullins horse on form and the most likely danger appears to be Ninas mount Broadway Allstar, going back to the first run she'd have a good chance. But all in all if Gleanntan runs to the Punchestown form she should win, if not be very close at least.
Its a poor enough card and cant have too much confidence in anything so will play it small, big week coming up with the Irish Derby!
Gleanntan 8-50 Sligo, 1pt win @ 5/2 with Bet365.
