Saturday centres around the Lockinge and the return of 2021 superstar Baaeed. He is unbeaten in six and will be hard to beat on his return, but his odds obviously reflect that with his only question mark that of fitness but he should be too good for his rivals.
The racing tomorrow is interesting enough outside of the Lockinge but I have to say there isn’t much that takes my fancy from a betting perspective. The only horse takes my interest is Red Vineyard at Newbury. There’s a field full of improvers but Red Vineyard has already shown a decent level of form including at this trip last time at Sandown where the form is working out really well. After his maiden win he was immediately stepped up to Group 3 where he disappointed over 7f but his Sandown run showed he had plenty of ability. I’d say he’s a fair bit more to come off his current mark of 83 and he looks the value in the race towards the bottom of the handicap.
The draw for the Greyhound Derby 2022 was made yesterday and if you follow us on Twitter (@TotallyBetting) you will already be sick of me talking about my (and a few mates) dog Annual Sydney who runs in Heat 13 next Friday. It has been a great ride with him so far getting to the Puppy Derby final at Monmore and finishing runner up despite not getting out as fast as he usually does then running a blinder in an Open race back there a few weeks ago running a tremendous split and very good time beating some good greyhounds. I am hoping with his early pace he will go through some rounds and we will see. I’ve certainly had a good go at 100/1. This boy is only just over 2 and has already given us so many good times. I’ll be backing him in his heat next week too as I think it is winnable but I’d bite your hand off for a Top 3 finish now!
I’ve also backed a few others Singnet Ace at 33s, Deelish Fankie at 50s who beat us in the Puppy Derby final and is a class dog, Signet Denver 50s and finally Warzone Tom at 80s who loves it around Towcester. I can’t wait for the competition to start and you can watch all the rounds on RPGTV on Sporty Stuff TC 437 on Sky and streamed for free on their site.
