• 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.

Hcap longer odds selections


The aim is to consider hcap runners with some form at better odds. The losing runs are longer but wins :D are more satisfying.
Catterick (going forecast G with some GS showers)
1.00 Versifier 8/1 mkt 11.30, D Cook up. Georgian Firebird 17/2, B Hughes up.
Comment: Checking with my usual market expectation I would have gone Keep The River 9/2, Massini's Dream 5/1, Raddle And Hume 5/1 dutch the three :).


2nd by a nose last time selection, so in the ball-park :).

Kempton (going forecast GS with some S)

2.40 Gortroe Joe 16/1 mkt 10.10. H Cobden up. (Notre Pari - O Murphy/B Gerachty combo will probably be fav, but too short opposite the risk in a race of this difficulty for punters IMO).


Post my getting out stakes in order of merit here rather than start another thread. These are VDW derivatives but not as we know him :) .

Royal Ascot (going forecast GS showers)

4.10 Finest Sound 9/4 (mkt 09.40), World Title 28/1, Dance Fever 22/1, Enemy 8/1

4.40 African Dream 15/8 (mkt 09.50), Declared Witness 9/1, Odyssey Girl 28/1, Dubai Love 5/1


More than 6 months since I last considered attempting to find bets at longer odds, but have to keep trying :D.

Ascot (going forecast S with some Hvy) market odds from 10.50.
1.50 market odds 10.50* 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12 indicating an open contest. Theoretical strong fav 11/4, contender 11/2, not expected longer than 10/1.

1* 5/1 (mkt 10.50) 2 (MY long odds rating) = 50/1 (Janika) - N Henderson?D Jacob
2. 20/1 4 = 25/1
3*. 11/2 4 = 25/1 (Lightly Squeeze)
4*. 9/1 7 = 13/1
5. 33/1 6 = 16/1
6*. 9/1 12 = 15/2 War Lord - C Tizzard/R Johnson
7*. 7/1 6 = 16/1
8. 14/1 11 = 8/1 I K Brunel - O Murphy/AP Heskin
9*. 8/1 8 = 12/1
10. 16/1 19 = 9/2 Dans Le Vent - E Williams/I Williams (5)
11*. 9/2 19 = 9/2 (Paddy's Motorbike)
12*. 11/1 3 = 33/1

Comment: Those indicated as contenders in the early market were Paddy's Motorbike, Janika, Lightly Squeeze, but it's not those I am interested in today. MY long-odds selection e. w. would be Dans Le Vent followed by War Lord and I K Brunel, however, you should please yourself :prankster:.

ATR form verdict in comparison.
DANNY KIRWAN was disappointing when last seen in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham in December but the eight-year-old had won impressively over C&D the time before and he can be given another chance on his handicap debut. Janika, who is currently rated 160 over fences, should not be underestimated on his return to hurdling, especially as he may improve for a wind operation. The shortlist is completed by Lightly Squeeze, Craigneiche and Arrivederci.
Watch out for: JANIKA (1)


Not far away the other day so trying another one for each-way today.

Plumpton (going forecast S with some Hvy and frozen places) RP Spotlight selects Zhiguli (7 pundits agree 7 oppose)
3.20 Market expected 09.50 no's 3, 4, 5, 6 indicating a win from these. Theoretical strong fav 2/1, contender 4/1, not expected longer than 8/1.

3. 2 = 40/1 MY odds looking for each-way (3/1 mkt) Crossgalesfamegame 6 tips
4. 14 = 7/2 (15/2) Bailarico (Greatrex yard form OK and 10lb claimer up)
5. 12 = 9/2 (15/2) Ridgeway Flyer
6. 15 = 10/3 (3/1) Zhiguli 8 tips

Comment: Following form Crossgalesfamegame and Zhiguli look the two to consider. However, I am after longer odds so it has to be Bailarico each-way.

ATR form verdict in comparison.
CROSSGALESFAMEGAME ran on well to finish behind The White Mouse for the second time this season when third at Cheltenham last month. The manner in which she finished suggests the step up in distance will bring about further progression with the handicapper having left her on the same mark. Bailarico is a thorough stayer who bounced back to winning ways at Catterick last time and he commands respect along with Zhiguli.
Watch out for: BAILARICO (4)
