Results so far
This blog has been running for two months now and we've made just under 14 points profit in that time. The last week has let us down a little with a few too many losers, however I am still reasonable happy with this outcome as there have been several nears misses.
My aim is to be able to produce at least ten profits profit each month which is certainly no easy task. If you can find a paid tipster service that makes over 100 points profit each year with very few drawdowns you are doing well.
As we have been in profit from the off the size of bank needed to follow these selections would not necessarily need to be that high. I would suggest a bank of 50 points would be more than sufficient to be able to confidently back every selection given here and make a nice profit.
This is a two mile class 2 handicap which features just the five runners.
Fitzwilly is the outsider of the five and although he has won over course and distance this year. That was in a lower class however and he is racing from seven pounds out of the handicap here. This gives Mick Channon's horse plenty to do here to threaten.
Kashgar hasn't really shown a great deal at all this year and although he has slipped down the handicap a bit because of this, it would take quite a turn around in form for him to be involved here. He did win this race last year so we know he handles the course and distance, that was from three pounds lower though and he hasn't really looked the same horse since that run.
Shades of Silver is running wonderfully well at the moment and is looking to complete a hat trick here. He romped home at Nottingham two races ago by eight lengths and followed that up by defying a ten pounds rise in the weights by winning at Kempton. He is up another six pounds here and I think that may be enough to stop him in the higher class race.
The majority of Rhombus's good form has been when there was cut in the ground and he won a good race at Nottingham last time out in the soft conditions. He has been raised three pounds for that win which puts him on the joint highest mark he's raced with. This coupled with the step up in class may be too much to cope with although I think he can make the frame.
Gale Force was beaten less than a length by Rhombus last time out over one mile six furlongs and she was staying on really strongly at the finish to suggest this extra distance will be perfect for her. Previously to that she was an easy winner over two miles at Kempton and she is quite lightly raced so there is sure to be further improvement in her. She appears to handle the softer conditions completely fine and is two pounds better off with Rhombus this time around. Putting all of this together make Gale Force the stand out bet of the day for me and I think she will take a lot of beating.
Goodwood 16:20 Gale Force - 3 points @ 5/4
