It wasn’t to be on the free tips yesterday from our 2 selections but we did find a nice winner on our full time service with Thyme Hill. That is the beauty of the full time service as we sent out 6 tips yesterday and the 2 tips were chosen at random. Obviously we can’t predict which of the 6 is going to win so the free tips can sometimes be lucky.
Don’t forget you can still get the remainder of the National Hunt Season for £50.00.
We are in top class form and the season is only going to get better and better.
We have tips in 6 races today but are giving out 2 of them for free.
THE BIG BREAKAWAY 10/1 generally – 0.75 POINTS E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds)
This looks a poor renewal of the Welsh National, really poor from past seasons and I think this race can be won with a bit of class, like THE BIG BREAKAWAY. We were on him last time out at Haydock, when beaten a head. He just kept grinding away, hit flat spots but dug deep. He looked a slow horse in all fairness, a horse who probably wanted 6 miles so no doubt this step up in trip to nearly 4 miles, is only going to help his cause. He came from the point to point field with a hefty price tag, won some nice races over hurdles and has not yet quite delivered over fences. This could be the time he repays his owners and the Tizzard yard have a fantastic record in this race. I think he can go close. E/W.
OSCAR ELITE 7/1 generally – 1 POINT E/W (3 places Will Hill, Bet 365 and Coral)
I am all over OSCAR ELITE here and I think he is one of the best handicapped horses over fences this season. He is now down to a handicap mark of 137 and last time out he ran in the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury, quietly fancied. If he was fancied in that race off 139 then he has to be a huge price here at 7/1. This is a horse who was 3rd in last season’s Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and if he produces that run, he wins this race, as simple as that. He still holds his novice status and he won’t have many better chances of getting his head in front for the first time over the bigger obstacles. E/W.
