Shergar Cup Day: Early Advice.

This day 2 years ago will live long in the memory with a 2,000/1 Account Bet Treble (to advised prices), as well as an additional non-account winner at 8/1 in Frankuus, and having combined all 4 in multiples, if was a very pleasing pay day..

We have an early bet advised for this coming Saturday in the Sprint race at 1.05 at Ascot as detailed further below.

Raising Sand WON 10/1 – Advised 20/1
Raising Sand hasn’t justified connections high opinion of him this season, but looked to be coming back to form with a promising run last time; good messages suggest an improved run is expected and he’s nicely weighted on what was a progressive looking profile last year.

Glenys The Menace WON 8/1 – Advised 10/1
An improving 3yo filly who’s already done really well at lower grades, winning and placing in 5 of her 7 starts this season, with a career best last time, albeit only 2nd of 4 runners. She’s previously won her previous 2 starts, but her effort last time when pushing a very promising sort on a soft surface suggested she’s still got plenty more to come. She was slightly outpaced by the winner, but stayed on really well and was closing all the way to the line. Stepping back up in trip is a definite plus and a big run is on the cards.

Rolling Maul WON 8/1
A real quirky type over hurdles and fences, as he tends to be very slow and reluctant over his obstacles, and yet has still reached a decent level, such is his natural ability. Well handicapped on the flat based on his NH rating, he won well for us last time and still looks potentially ahead of the handicapper. Happy on ground with juice in it, he’s expected to run another big race and could well progress a good deal further if sticking to the flat this season.


Saturday: Early Advice.
Shergar Cup Sprint,1.05 Ascot – Danzeno – 5/1 Paddy Power, Betfred, 9/2 William Hill, generally 4/1.
The Shergar Cup races are limited to 10 runners and with rain forecast for Ascot later in the week and over the weekend, ground conditions should be very suitable for Danzeno, who is a likely runner. On ratings he’s sure to get in and is in great form with the stiff Ascot finish being ideal for him. Having competed in pattern races for a lot of his career, he’s been dropped into handicap company this year ad won really impressively on his return to action over 5 furlongs at Nottingham. That was followed by a fast finishing 3rd in the Wokingham, before winning last time pretty comfortably. He looks nailed on to go very close and is as expected he turns up, then we’d expect him to be a fair deal shorter on the day.
Please note this is an Ante Post Bet, so if we don’t run, we lose our money. Therefore keep stakes sensible, as we can always top up on the day.

Result: Beaten in a 3 way photo at 15/8 – So Close.
