Andrew heads to the Flat turf meetings at Yarmouth and Fairyhouse for his two recommended bets/trades on Thursday, June 1st. Follow his tips this week and all year round on horse racing betting sites with the lowdown on his latest picks below:
George Margarson has his team in fine form and Ropey Guest capped an excellent spell for the yard when scoring in decisive fashion at Goodwood last week. Many of his runners have exceeded market expectations recently – Farhh To Shy landed a handicap at Ascot at the rewarding odds of 20-1, Mythical Guest ran very well to finish third at 100-1 at HQ and several others have placed at double-figure odds, suggesting that ABRAVAGGIO could be worth chancing to continue the yard’s fine run when he contests the 7f handicap at Yarmouth this afternoon. He caught the eye on his reappearance at Windsor – slowly into stride and held up in the rear, he made steady headway as the race developed but was unable to keep tabs on Hughie Morrison’s impressive scorer Royal Cape and wasn’t given a hard time by John Egan, coming home in his own time to finish fifth of the nine runners. He looks certain to improve for that comeback outing and may be able to get involved on his handicap debut. Buy in the Spreadex 50-25-10 market or take a price in the fixed odds betting.
Recommendation: Back ABRAVAGGIO in Yarmouth 4.30
GRADULATIONS appreciated every yard of the extended 1m2f trip at Sligo at about this time last year, finishing strongly to score with ease in maiden company. She was sent off at 5-1 to maintain her 100% Sligo record in a handicap last month but, wearing a Monty Roberts rug, she became upset in the stalls and missed the break by several lengths. She managed to get back into contention then met trouble when coming with her run and was eased down to finish sixth of the nine runners. She left the firm impression that she would have gone close at least had she broken on terms and I’ve kept a close eye on her since. Dropped back to a mile on her next start, she struggled to keep up with the early pace and was doing all her best work in the closing stages, staying on well to finish less than six lengths behind the winner in a big-field handicap at the Curragh. She should relish the step back up to 1m2f this evening and trainer Andrew Oliver reaches for the first-time cheekpieces in a bid to help keep her mind on the job. Buy in the Spreadex 50-25-10 market or take a fixed odds price.
Recommendation: Back GRADULATIONS in Fairyhouse 6.00
