TV Tips Saturday 24 March 2018

Post-racing update: after a poor Cheltenham, we carried a deficit of £30.52 into today. I don’t know when Cold Shoulder was withdrawn as I placed my bets last night and have been out. Hopefully you had the EW treble on as the double paid £11.70 and the EW single on Just A Thought paid 4.50 giving a profit on the day of £10.20 and reducing the 2018 deficit for TV tips to £20.32


Just three jump races today. I rarely tip on the Flat so will forego the Doncaster TV races and concentrate on Newbury. I’ll update the P&L after racing


Shanroe Santos is becoming something of a jinx horse for this blog, which tipped him three outings ago when he failed to finish. Of course he won next time in a non-televised race, restoring confidence enough to feature as another TV tip last time. Still in with a fine chance, he tipped up two out. I shall leave him alone today. There’s an argument that he’s better right handed anyway.

The selection is Dawson City who won in the style of an improving horse last time, albeit over half a mile farther than today. The testing ground and a good gallop will help his chance.

Dawson City  8/1



In a tricky race, I like Cold Shoulder who’s been keen in all his hurdle races but seems to be learning with each one. I like the way he kept on last time after wearing himself out quite a bit running so free so long under a claimer. J Davies takes over here for trainer Tom Symonds, who doesn’t have many winners, but that helps the price.

It’s a step up in class, but I believe Cold Shoulder will outrun his big odds and should be backed EW in the hope all 8 stand their ground.

Cold Shoulder  25/1



Just A Thought is highly consistent; 3rd twice in her career, 2nd five times and twice a winner. On that record alone she’s a very fair price here and I recommend an each way bet.

Just A Thought  14/1


If all 8 look to be running in the 2.05 and 3.15, I’ll be having a £1 EW treble on the above and advise that you do the same along with the usual £1 single bets.

Enjoy the racing and don’t bet more than you can afford to lose with a smile.

  1. My system highlights the value of Bells ‘N’ Banjos [BNB] in the 14:05 and this has also been picked up by Tom Segal which has squeezed his odds a bit. Struggled in two attempts over 4 miles but back over a more suitable trip today BNB is back down to his last wining mark and should hopefully run his race.

    152,BELLS ‘N’ BANJOS(IRE),20.96,4.8
    150,THOMAS PATRICK(IRE),14.68,7
    152,AMORE ALATO(GB),13.03,7.8
    150,SHANROE SANTOS(IRE),9.9,10.5
    149,DAWSON CITY(GB),9.19,11
    148,LOWER HOPE DANDY(GB),7.31,14

    No other bets over the jumps but my EW treble would be the selection with Ulysses & Kalahari Queen.

    Good luck.


    P.S Slight mistake in the EW treble sentence: “If all 8 look to be running in the 2.05 and 3.15”, 3.15 should be 2.40

    1. Thanks for picking up that error, Tony. Since the 2.40 was reduced by mine not running, hopefully readers were already on for the EW treble as the double returned £11.70.

      Bells N Banjos ran no race. I find it frustrating when they run nowhere near their form, though plenty are amiss to some degree every day I suppose.

      All the best.
