2:55 Haydock (24th May) Free Horse Racing Tips

With reference to last night's post we have a speculative tip. These types of bets are to some extent a hit-and-hope wager but I feel Hats Off is worth a few quid each way at 25/1 (most bookmakers). This bay colt, trained by John Best, is a good-looking son of Royal Applause and cost £33,000 at the yearling sales. He was fancied on debut at Kempton when running over 5f. This race has been franked by a good few winners. Best's two-year-olds can often improve for the run and I don't think he was at his best on that turning track. In truth, it was a fair effort with the promise of much more to come. However, after being fancied on his second start at Goodwood, he ran no race at all. The ground was very testing that day and he simply wasn't suited by conditions. That race could well be a blessing in disguise for those who take a chance today because he is a huge price because he looks pretty poor. Best mentioned this colt was a much better horse at home and needs faster ground. I am pretty sure they know this youngster has ability. I will bet a few quid each way and fingers crossed he shows a level of ability. One thing I know, we will see his true running this afternoon - win or lose. 

Next to hopeless.

Hi Clint,

I wondered where you were yesterday. Sounds a good day with tennis and boozing :-). I've just been out for a walk around the local fen farmland - just a couple of miles. It is very pretty in a flat pancake landscape kind of way. Could hear (and see the) the skylarks high in the sky. They sing unendingly. I think I should stick to bird watching...lol. Hope you are having a good day.
