Mr Sod’s Law and his brutal band of betting demons continued wreaking havoc at Pontefract yesterday. As soon as I had identified John Kirkup as the biggest danger to my selection, it was obvious what was going to happen. The horse that I tipped up last month when he could only finish sixth at Ripon absolutely bolted up! Quite unbelievably, the other horse I mentioned in yesterday’s write up (Bossipop) finished second at a double-figure price and was about eight lengths clear of Our Little Pony back in fifth. I am sure I even saw the winning jockey Connor Beasley salute the mysterious forces as he crossed the line.

Although I am obviously joking, it does feel like I have been getting more than my fair share of bad luck recently. Surely things will change soon…

Newcastle Tips

15:00 – 6f Betway Casino Handicap (Class 3)

The demons won’t know what to do today as I am able to back all three horses on my shortlist thanks to some generous work by the odds compilers. My main hope is the bang in form three-year-old INTRINSIC BOND (NAP – 1 point win bet at 6/1). Jason Hart’s mount has won two of his last three outings and was an unlucky third at Thirsk two starts back. He won over this course and distance on his only previous visit here and is very much a sprinter on the up.

WILD EDRIC (0.5 point win bet at 12/1) had hinted for a while that he was due to return to the winners’ enclosure and he did just that at Chester last time out. He is equally effective on an artificial surface and there is every chance he can continue his good run of form.

My final selection is nowhere near as obvious and comes here with uninspiring recent form figures of 000. DEPUTISE (0.5 point win bet at 40/1) has been well beaten in his last three starts but as a result, he drops down in class and is now 8 lb lower than when he got close to Fizzy Feet on the All-Weather earlier this year. This ex William Haggas-trained gelding also won on his only previous visit here and could outrun his huge odds.

Yarmouth Tips

16:20 – 6f Download The At The Races App Handicap (Class 6)

Chris Wall does well with his runners at Yarmouth and can register another course success with his improving three-year-old filly MOLLY SHAW (1 point win bet at 6/1). A winner over this course and distance in August, she followed up at Salisbury last month before losing second on the line in a higher grade at Nottingham last time out. Off the same handicap mark today, she looks to have solid claims.

A chance is also taken on NAPPING (0.5 point win bet at 18/1), who won over this course and distance last season. All but one of her five career wins have come in this grade, and she has not been disgraced in Class 5 company of late. Both these runners look to be drawn on the right side of the track and hopefully one can be successful.
