• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Comment: It doesn't look a good day for favourites at HQ going by the early market,but perhaps a patent on these three might be profitable?


Try Plumpton with the goodish going forecast.

Plumpton (going forecast G watered light rain) market odds from 10.25. Suggested staking J Ryder plan down the card stop-when-in-profit.

2.08 Lawtop Legend 6/5 (danger Ding Ding 6/10
2.38 Bob Backus 6/4 (danger Soarlikeaneagle 5/2)

A really poor card at Lingfield tomorrow.

Races ripe for a gamble, I'd say. Dove Divine could be one in the 3.35. 8th of 9, 8th of 8 and 9th of 14 in three runs for Lee Carter after leaving Hughie Morrison rated 64. Last time Kieran O'Neill may well have gone for home too far out, and faded by end of race so may be somewhat better than final result.
For tomorrow though, Adam Kirby was an early booking. He doesn't have a great record for the yard and has never ridden for the owners before. However, the owners are two wins from eight runners at track, (with a further two placed) - a £30.00 profit to industry SP.
This horse has only had ten career starts and is now 12lbs lower than when fifth of ten, beaten 3.25 lengths in January 2020 over C&D (for different owners).
Highly speculative, but might pop up someday fairly soon, and it may well be tomorrow. Would probably want bigger than 17/2 though


Currentlymy selection methods are going through a bad patch, so I may have to try a different approach, but not right now :prankster: . The principal meeting appears to favour the short odds in the early market on paper, so will just rate them and see how we go Checking my choice I find that most of them are from the K Dalgleish yard or ridden by Joe Fanning and as they are the top two it's lookin favourable at present.

Ayr (going forecast GF light rain) market odds from 11.00. J Ryder staking down the card stop-when-in-profit for me.

5.25 Scudamore 30 (8/11 mkt)

6.30 Corndavon Lad 33 (10/3) R Fahey

7.35 Chookie Dunedin 45 (11/4)
8.05 Dream With Me 52 (5/4) M Johnston/J Fanning
8.35 Puckle 40 (7/4) M Johnston/J Fanning

Considered all the Flat turf afternoon cards on the UK mainland and nowhere except Bath appears to have short odds punters much to offer, so caution is the watchword;
