The 1st race was interesting, won by Boldinor ( 20/1 in the betting forecast – opened up at 12/1 – another 16/1 system selection) – of course this wasn’t noticeable at time of writing!

Rockazar a neck 4th at 7/1 – frustrating for each way backers, Snaefell 3rd at 5/1, a couple of non runners and a winner in Dress rehearsal – as I suspected redressing the balance for the Irish Combos.

Some respite with over 3.5 goals in the Saudi Arabia game as they won 4-1

Folkstone good to soft and Ripon is likely to be softening throughout the day making racing post spotlight redundant (as based on good ground?)
BETTING FORECAST: 10/11 Compromiznotension, 15/8 Masra, 8/1 Nashharry, 14/1 Comeintothespace, 16/1 Desert Stag, 40/1 Follow On,  Kingoftheswingers

SPOTLIGHT VERDICT: Both the likely principals have proved costly to follow but it can pay to persevere with COMPROMIZNOTENSION in a weaker race. He can make his hurdling experience tell against Masra.

A 2 horse race? Toss of a coin – Compromiznotension for me

Again, live market really imperative today with projected change in ground conditions.

The Frenchies take on Columbia today in another friendly – 0-0 last time for the french boys and overall friendly form makes them layable in the Euros. 4/9 indicates a straightforward victory, but an inability to score against world heavy weights ,erm, Peru signifies they are perhaps not a betting proposition.
What chance under 2.5 goals here in keeping with previous friendlies against south american opposition. Ideally trading of course.
You could always hang on and wait if there is a concerted period of 0-0, get on France at enhanced odds. I did this in the Peru game – backing a 1/3 side at 4.4 and 17.5 but they didn’t prevail that time
