Saturday’s FREE TIP is:
3:25 Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Gimcrack Stakes
My NAP of the festival and I would be surprised if he gets beat here. The horse in question is BLUE POINT and although he is available at 2/1, I actually make him a 5/4 shot. I respect Mokarris the 2nd favourite but the rain is falling today and into to tomorrow morning and I don’t think that will do him any favours. It certainly didn’t when he went on soft ground at Ascot anyway and although it is not likely to get into the ground to much, it is still a big negative. Anyway back on to our selection who lost his first race to Mehmas last time out. That form is the best around as you all know how highly I rate Mehmas. To be green and still get within a head of Mehmas is a great effort.He even went off 10/11 favourite for the race and today he don’t bump into a horse as good as Mehmas. BLUE POINT would’ve learned so much that day as that was the first time he got in a battle. The horse will know what it takes out of you now and what you need to do to get your head in front. Charlie Appleby loves this horse and rates it as one of his best. The way he won his first 2 starts shows you how good the horse is. On his 2nd start he won by a huge 11 lengths. I really think this horse is nailed on for the win and his breeding suggests any rain that falls will be no problem. WIN.
BLUE POINT – 9/4 with Betfair – 3 POINT WIN
