As I mentioned last night, we now have a pronounced draw bias on the straight track and if you are not drawn high, in big fields, forget it. It’s impossible to get across from a low draw and good horses are simply being allowed to coast home, and wait for another day.
I’m afraid that means my work for the 5-00pm race looks severely compromised, AWE drawn 5, VELORUM coming from stall 7 and only, perhaps, KING ADEMAR from that 16 draw having a squeak. It’s now a no bet race for me.
I’ll have a 20/80 SUNDAY SOVEREIGN in the opener….ground right, draw right. I’ll also be playing CAPE OF GOOD HOPE….given the “facts” discussed, I’d be mad not to….fingers crossed the ground is no hinderance but with that slight doubt, I’ll keep my staking low.
They will be my only plays at Royal Ascot this afternoon…..and that way of working yesterday gave me profit from the two I played.
My profiling for the last race on the card feels strong but the plain fact is, none of the four I got down to has raced on soft ground and so, unless by some miracle it dries out, I’m keeping the £’s in my pocket and waiting.
We made a small profit yesterday and I want to give them nothing back. The screenshot made for good reading on a day we had little to work with
A profit, is profit, is a profit and +£17.22 is better than -£17.22
It’s just a quiet day, the kind that has seen some decent profits achieved recently so let’s just see how we get on.
I’ll have tomorrow’s Profiling with you before 8-00pm, I’ve five “off meetings” to work with and it’s a very busy one, for sure so I’ll leave it there and crack on!
Have a great day!
