There’s some cracking racing on Friday and top tipster Andrew Mount has found four value bets at York, Newmarket and Newcastle
INTERNATIONAL DREAM – (2.05 York, 1pt each-way - 14/1)
I bet INTERNATIONAL DREAM win only in the first-time cheekpieces when he was 25-1 for a course and distance handicap, thinking he’d win or bomb out completely. Needless to say, he ran third and I missed out on a place profit.
The time was quick and that race has received a few boosts, with the seventh and eighth running one-two at Leicester earlier this week. His middle draw could prove ideal and he looks over-priced again.
SILVER SAMURAI – (2.40 York, 1pt each-way - 14/1)
SILVER SAMURAI didn’t have the race run to suit when a three-length seventh of ten to Top Secret at Ascot last time and it was a similar story at Newbury when third to Aratus on his penultimate start.
There looks to be plenty of pace on offer from the likes of Poet’s Magic, Challet and Danzan, and it will be disappointing if he isn’t on the premises.
POGO – (3.35 Newmarket, 1pt each-way - 14/1)
POGO’s combined record at the two Newmarket tracks reads 1122 (2-4), with the first defeat by half a length and the other by a length and a half when 10-1.
He was placed from the front in Group 2 company at Goodwood last time and could get a relatively soft time of things in front today.
HOSTELRY – (7.00 Newcastle, 1pt each-way - 7/1)
HOSTELRY shaped well against the draw and pace bias at Pontefract last time, keeping on into a two-and-a-half length sixth of 12 when drawn widest of all. The winner, runner-up and fourth were on the front end throughout and the two hold-up horses who beat her – Mr Orange and Single Anglais – returned to Pontefract last week to run one-two.
She clocked a fast time when third over tonight’s course and distance on her penultimate start and that form has received a few boosts, notably from the winner Brazen Bolt who is now rated 11lb higher after recording two wins and a close second from his next three starts.
Hostelry is well drawn (stall 8 of 8) to get cover from the forecast strong wind, which will be half into their faces from the far side, and another patient ride could be just the ticket.
