Track Bias Diary - Wednesday 5 June

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2PENNY POT LANE had no chance from her high draw at Nottingham last time, finishing ninth of the 14 runners. Tricky Dicky and Poet’s Pride, who followed her home down the stands’ side, finished first and fourth when they met again at Thirsk next time and the 12th, Decision Maker, won at Newcastle last night. I’m not thrilled with her draw in stall nine of nine when she returns to Nottingham for the racingtv.com fillies’ Handicap (12.30) but she’s still worth a small interest.

Track Bias Diary - Monday 3 June

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2At Brighton, I like the look of NORMAL EQUILIBRIUM in the opening Eagles Soaring High Handicap (2.00). He very much caught the eye when a 50-1 third of 17 at Doncaster last time, doing best of those to race up with the pace in a race run to suit the closers. Kenny The Captain, well back in 11th after also chasing the strong early pace, placed at 10-1 next time to give the form a minor boost. All his wins have come in fields of 11 or fewer runners, the majority of them around a turn, and he should be suited by the track.

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2Arcano offspring tend to improve with age and had we backed the sire’s four-year-old representatives, on the Flat and after a recent outing (within three weeks) we would have won 55 of our 321 bets (17.1% strike-rate) and made a profit of £113.68 to a £1 level stake at SP (+£292.14 at Betfair SP).

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2BEVERLEY BULLET could only finish eighth of 12 at Pontefract on his return to turf last month but the good to firm going was far too quick for him and he’ll be much happier in the Dr Eddie Moll Handicap at Beverley (3.40) on Wednesday where the ground is described as ‘good to soft (watered)’! The six-year-old is back down to his last winning mark and his record on officially good to soft or softer going reads 131146772156104 (5-15), improving to 111467104 (4-9) on soft or heavy only.

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2The Roger Varian-trained QABALA impressed in landing the Nell Gwyn Stakes from off the pace last month and her subsequent 1000 Guineas third can be upgraded as she fared best of those who were ridden patiently. The winner (‘made all’) and second (‘tracked winner)’ sat one-two throughout whereas she was described was ‘held up in rear of midfield’. She looks the bet in the Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday (4.25).

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2CROSSING THE LINE (stall one of 11) is perfectly drawn in the 7.5f MBNA Handicap at Chester on Saturday and the likely strong pace will play to her strengths. More importantly, she runs extremely well when fresh and has been given a short break since her Lingfield fifth on Good Friday. She was taking her races better last year but a rest of at least five weeks seems ideal, her record under these conditions being 12111 (4-5), with the defeat by a head.

Track Bias Diary - Thursday 16 May

image-left-align track-bia14s-diary-v2There’s pace all over the track in the 5f Matchbook Betting Exchange Handicap that opens Thursday’s York card (1.50) and COPPER KNIGHT (stall 11 of 22) should enjoy getting a tow into the race after finishing second from the front at Chester last week. He probably did too much too soon that day in an attempt to make the most of his favourable low draw and that run, his second of the season, might still have been needed. His record on his third start each season reads 111 (3-3), including victory in an 18-runner course and distance handicap two years ago.
