Yesterday was one of of those days that make racing what it is.  Six selections for one win, three seconds and two thirds.  Royal Raccoon bombed the start, somehow managed to get out in front at the home turn but then ran out of puff.  Small margins between an OK day and a great day.  Frustrating but it keeps us coming back!

Addington is now on hiatus until 26 April so there will likely be less selections during this period.  I’ll also be moving later this week to a membership model for this site – more to follow.

There’s only 8 races at Hatrick and a couple of those are C0 races so not a lot to bet into.

Just two bets today and struggling to find anything worth betting into today.

Recommended Bets – 3 Units

Race 5 Eye Know (4) 1 unit TOP3 @ $3.00 First 3 units returned

Race 6 Yarn Sister (6) .5 units FF win @ $8.50 First 4.25 units returned (half unit)

Race 6 Yarn Sister (6) 1.5 units TOP3 @ $2.20 First 3.3 units returned.

3 units spent for 13.5 units back.  Just a pity we didn’t have half a unit on Eye Know to win but that would be getting greedy.

Race 5 Eye Know (4)

It looks a race Allegro Smooch should be winning but we should have noticed that the $1.60 shots are not guarantees of a win.  What worries me about Smooch and Yuri is that both haven’t been consistent off the lids.  Yes, they have the two times in this race but both have been guilty of missing the start and you can’t do that and hope to win sprints.  The dog that maps to get the early lead is Eye Know.  I think he’s worth a small play for a place at that price.  If he can get out in front as the map suggests, then any trouble behind helps.

First.  Well, that’s racing.  The rough place tip jumps as well as we could have hoped and ran a personal best.  He was never going to be headed.  I went sensible for the place but hopefully some of you got the win money!

Race 6 Yarn Sister (6)

Another race with a short priced favourite who should be winning but again has some issues with slow starts.  Moses has won his last two but in those races he was 3rd and 6th out of the boxes and that is not a recipe for ongoing success.  The dog with e second best over all time and the second best rating is Yarn Sister (6).  She maps to be first away and she has a strong record in the outside boxes.

First.  One of those days I suppose.  We couldn’t get the wins yesterday but no problems today.  Just don’t back the favourites.
