I suspended my OF INTEREST section a couple of months ago now but I have kept an eye on what would have qualified and recently, things have started to look positive again.
Had I been looking to populate that section of the Newsletter this morning one horse would have certainly fitted
GENEVA SPUR (Epsom 5-25)
Now, everyone that knows me, knows how much I loathe betting on racing at Epsom. If a jockey as good as Ryan Moore finds it so hard riding winners there, it’s hardly surprising that backing winners there is every bit as difficult.
This horse makes debut in a very sad looking Class 6, but whilst I as a punter, and Moore as a jockey, struggle here, Roger Varian as a trainer, most certainly does not.
His record in recent times with 3-y-o’s at Epsom is ridiculous (38% strike rate), and Andrea Atzeni’s record when riding for Varian here is as equally bonkers….again, 38% (8-21).
The horse runs in the lowest grade for the first time today and all looks set fair for a big run….if the poor beast doesn’t come off Tattenham Corner and finds its legs going one way, its head going another, as it rolls down the camber and the jockey does all he can to stop it….hate the place!
