2:30 Yarmouth (16th September) Imtiyaaz Has Class To Shine On Debut

An EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over 6f 3y on good-to-form going. Twelve two-year-olds take part: seven raced, including a handful of debutantes from leading yards. 

Roger Varian has been in flying form with Kingston Hill's St Leger victory, then Cursory Glance taking the Moyglare Stakes (Group 1) in Ireland. Kremlin House Stables can do little wrong. Imtiyaaz is a daughter of Starspangledbanner, out of a twice-race mare who showed little when in training with Godolphin. This February foal, bred by Lynn Lodge Stud, cost 62,000gns, when purchase as a yearling by Hugo Merry Bloodstock at Tattersalls October Sale 2013 (Book 2). Varian has a fair strike rate with his debutantes and it is intriguing to note that this filly holds a couple of lofty engagements for the Shadwell Rockfel Stakes (Group 2) and Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1). She is one of only twenty entries for this Newmarket race, and the trainer's other representative is the might Cursory Glance. These pointers suggest this filly has her share of ability and although much to prove with regarding those Group-class ambitions, connections must be keen to see what this grand daughter of Green Desert can achieve. A fair each way selection if prices allow.

National winners setting sights on Aintree 2015

A glance at the ante-post market for the 2015 Crabbies Grand National at Aintree, a race worth total prize money of £1 million, shows that last year’s hero Pineau de Re and Shutthefrontdoor, impressive winner of the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse, are amongst a number of horses vying for favouritism at around 26.0 with most firms in the Grand National betting, writes Elliot Slater.

There’s a long way to go before the 40 runners will face the starter for “the world’s greatest steeplechase” at Aintree racecourse in the spring, but already connections of the two respective Grand National heroes of last year are laying out their plans for the campaign ahead.

Pineau de Re, trained by Dr Richard Newland, proved a revelation last term and far exceeded even the wildest expectations of his new owner, Mr Provan, who purchased the veteran privately from his previous patrons who had raced the horse over a number of seasons in Ireland under the guidance of trainer Philip Fenton. The French-bred gelding had placed in graded hurdles in his youth but had seemingly plateaued some time ago over fences, yet the change of scene and the new surroundings of Newland’s Warwickshire stables brought about a remarkable transformation in the 11-year-old.

After winning a veterans handicap chase at Exeter in January he switched to hurdles and very nearly pulled off an amazing win in the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle Final at the Cheltenham Festival before taking his chance over the still awesome Aintree fences, being sent off at Grand National betting odds of 25/1. The rest is history, as Leighton Aspell’s mount galloped to a superb five-length victory over Balthazar King, catapulting his handler into the international sporting spotlight.

Dr Newland is hopeful that despite the certainty of having to carry more weight in the big race this year Pineau de Re (26.0) has a sporting chance of getting involved at the business end of the contest and is likely to campaign him over hurdles for most of the season, keeping the old horse fresh for another assault on the £1 million Crabbies-sponsored showcase event

On the other side of the Irish Sea another smart staying handicap chaser made a big name for himself last term and could be one to definitely keep on the right side in the season ahead with his ambitious owner JP McManus, trainer Jonjo O’Neill, and jockey Tony McCoy eyeing a crack at the Aintree marathon on the spring.

Shutthefrontdoor achieved a tremendous amount in his first season over fences having previously shown ability over hurdles. There’s no doubt that the gelded son of Accordion exceeded expectations with the rapid progress he made over fences, culminating in a famous victory in the Irish Grand National when getting the better of a tremendous tussle with Golden Wonder to score by three-quarters-of-a-length under a great ride from Barry Geraghty.

Tony McCoy had ridden Shutthefrontdoor on most of his outings over fences - with the exception of his previous outing at Cheltenham in the Terry Biddlecombe National Hunt Chase (for amateur riders) - but he was unable to travel to Ireland for the big race and Geraghty proved a more than able substitute at Fairyhouse.

At just seven years old the Irish National winner is likely still improving and hopes are understandably high that a horse with his stamina and attitude could well have something to offer at Aintree in the spring when he could well be amongst the market principals, especially if McCoy, very much a housewives favourite these days, is back on board.

Saturday Tipping Competition

4:50 Leicester Racing Tips (9th September) BRITISH STALLION STUDS EBF FILBERT MAIDEN FILLIES´ STAKES (Bobis Race) (CLASS 4) (2yo)

All season, Karl Burke's two-year-olds have been in flying form at Spigot Lodge and Housemaker is likely to continue that winning vein of form today. This daughter of Nayef is bred to enjoy a trip, racing in the familiar silks of Hubert John Strecker [Libertarian, pictured]. This bay filly was born in January, so an early foal, bred by Usk Valley Stud, purchased at a knock-down price of 15,000gns by Lars Kelp Bloodstock. Housemaker was well backed (20-1 - 10-1) when making her debut in an EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes over 7f at Newmarket. Always prominent, she finished a promising second, ridden by today's partner, Jim Crowley. There was money for this youngster on the exchanges last night with a few die-hard punters stepping in at odds-on. However, that price has drifted to nearer 2-1. In some regards this price is still on the short side but if touching 11/4 or so (optimistic) this looks a fair bet.  

Smart Live Gaming Partnered with Ellis Cashmore to Feature UK Citizens’ Betting Behaviour

Smart Live Gaming, the fastest growing licenced online casino in the United Kingdom, featured a visually orientated recreation of the Gambling Commission’s most recent betting statistics. This version comprehensively addresses the betting behaviour of UK citizens divided accordingly by gender and array of age groups. In order to achieve a more informative presentation, Smart Live Gaming spoke with Ellis Cashmore, a professor of culture, media and sport at Staffordshire University, for more detailed and exclusive insights into gambling trends within the United Kingdom. 

Smart Live Gaming cited noteworthy information and in-depth analysis of the UK Betting Behaviour of British adult gamblers. In addition, it revealed the contrasting interests that have significantly influenced multiple individuals within a particular age group and gender. The visual presentation made use of three significant areas that chiefly affect the betting behaviour of UK citizens to broadly specify the variation among the age groups: betting activities, machines/games used for gambling and lotteries/related products.

“The UK has a strong gambling culture, starting in the Napoleonic Wars era (1800-15) probably hitting its stride in the inter-war period (1918 onwards) when illegal betting syndicates grew,” Prof. Ellis Cashmore said. According to the Gambling Behaviour in England and Scotland, an in-depth study of gambling and problem gambling levels conducted by the Gambling Commission, 65% of English and Scottish adults have done gambling in the past year. In addition, men are being more likely to be involved in gambling than women. 

Figure 1 

The gambling behaviour of UK citizens has constantly varied by age. In the flashcard above (figure 1), the gambling participation rate is highest among the middle-aged gamblers in the UK, and lowest among the age group of the youngest and oldest gamblers. Moreover, while horse racing is the most prevalent betting activity for women of all ages, the purchase of National Lottery tickets ranked the most popular among all age groups and both genders. 

According to government statistics it could be argued that betting forms an intrical part of UK Culture since there’s such a large interest in the National Lotto, Horse Racing, Football and Slot Machines. However, Prof. Ellis Cashmore stated that gambling has become ‘medicalised’ over the years as it began exaggerating its negative effects in the society. “It is a social activity that should be understood socially,” he added.

Saturday Tipping Competition

It's that time again - the start of a new month and the Saturday Tipping Competition. August's battle to the line saw a quite remarkable conclusion. Betmanmike held off the late challenge of Bobby Talk & Clint (who only needed to place to win). Bobby Talks' horse was actually huge odds on to hit the frame but sadly it had more chance of hitting a fox in the undergrowth. Betmanmike will be buoyed by his victory, while others will motivated by sheer greed [myself included]. All Pro entrants please make sure you pay via the Pay Pal button (below). Deadline 1:20PM. Thanks for your support.
