Todays Racing Tip – URBAN KODE
Time & Track – 5.10 KELSO
Best Odds – 9/1
Analysis – Ran a great race when 2nd for us at 33-1 2 runs back at Musselburgh under todays jockey. Wasn’t quite so good next time when 9-2jtfav only 4th beaten quite a way out but battling on well late on to be 4th. The course & distance here aren’t a problem my only concern is the 80day break, if he’s sharp enough for this.
Todays Racing Tip – WELCOME BEN
Time & Track – 4.10 KELSO
Best Odds – 20/1
Analysis – Led them at a cracking pace over CD 2 runs back only headed at the last and losing 2nd last 100yds. Now on better ground and with first time cheek pieces replacing the usual blinkers but moreimportantly off a 7lb lower mark than that 3rd. Didn’t run so well last time at Newcastle when tried to do the same leading until 3 out then weakened quickly until pulled up but that was on significantly softer ground.
Todays Racing Tip – ARANTES (NAP)
Time & Track – 2.40 KELSO
Best Odds – 28/1
Analysis – Started the NH season with me liking him at 100-1 in a novice h’cap hurdle at Carlisle off 100. He ran ok without trying too hard but ran a much better race next time here at Kelso when 4th at 33-1 again we were on. Then his prices were too short for me to take the chance on him so i left him alone, then he went chasing where he ran ok but never looked like winning. That was followed by 2 runs back over hurdles where he fell when running well at Ayr and then his last run just 2 days ago looked to be a confidence booster. He now runs back over fences over a decent trip on better ground off a mark of just 79 less 7lb claim so 72 carrying just 9st8 in a 0-105 Class 4. He may need a bit of luck but at 28-1 he looks a cracking ew bet to me under these conditions.
