Quick Note...

Mick: Loves you, that bird
It's been a quiet day without any two-year-old racing. However, it was a good opportunity to review a number of races with my brother, Tony. He is behind XL Tips which you can find at the top of the page or the link on the right hand side. XL Tips give truly speculative bets and they are very, very, very infrequent. It's not as though you have a decent 33/1 shot running every week, hey. I will highlight when he gives a tip on HCE so you don't need to visit his blog on a daily basis because it is a ghost town. If you keep watching you may see some tumble weed roll by but it's pretty quiet. He is very good though. I don't know too many people who have struck gold with 100/1+ winners on Betfair and he has many times. 


Four two-year-old races tomorrow: Carlisle, Leicester, Windsor & Thirsk. A bit of a mixed bag with a selling race, auction, maiden and stakes. I have had a quick review but need to take an in depth look this evening and tomorrow to come to any conclusions. 


Something did catch my eye on tomorrow's card. Made me smile. It must be a first for Mick Easterby. He is training a two-year-old for the Sangster Family. Risky Art runs at 2:00 Carlisle over 5f. I had thoughts of The Minstrel and got quite excited until I notice it was a median auction maiden. This Dutch Art filly cost 5,500gns so small change but nice to see. Good luck to Risky Art on her debut.
