Betting - Tracked Horses Strategy - #4 - My Boy Jack & Stage Star


Hi sports fans, and sports bettors.

Another near miss from our one to follow on Sunday with Bear Ghylls finishing in third place, having been prominent throughout, racing in second place for much of the 2M 4F. Was still in with a good chance approaching the last fence but didn't jump it that well, losing momentum and fading on the run in.

Today we have two runners from our list of horses to follow.

First up is My Boy Jack, who we backed just 5 days ago producing a good second on the alleweather at Lingfield over 7f, coming down a furlong in trip, and again on the allweather, this time at Newcastle, with the same jockey Taylor Fisher on board once again.

Our second horse to follow today is Stage Star, making his season's debut ,trained by Paul Nicholls running at Warwick in a field of four runners, and ridden by the superb Harry Cobden.

Once again Rendlesham Racing picked this one as one to follow recently and this is what they said about him, again in the Tipsters Empire NH Horses to follow email with each of their tipsters picking 5 horses for the NH season.

Stage Star Trainer Paul Nicholls
This horse was somewhat disappointing in the end last season after offering plenty of promise, firstly in bumpers in a few NHF races (finished 3rd in a grade 2 NHF race at Aintree) and then in his first few races over hurdles. He won his first three hurdle starts, justifying favouritism in all three. The most impressive of them was back in December at Newbury over the extended 2m4f, in the Challow Novices Hurdle (grade 1). He bolted up by nearly 7L, jumping soundly and looking a very exciting prospect. However, he was off the track for 77 days and returned with two awful pulled up efforts in top grade 1 company to end the season. He was far too keen in both those runs and just never settled. He’s now had a wind-op over the
summer which often helps settle a horse and he’s set to go novice chasing this season. If the wind-op has the desired effect in settling him and he shows the ability he did over hurdles, over fences then he’s going to win plenty of races. In terms of prices for bigger races to come, he's roughly 33/1 for the Brown Advisory Novices' Chase & 40/1 for the Turners Novices Chase at Cheltenham later on in the season.
