With the "Beast From The East" battering this Sceptred Isle, they will be no jumping action in Britain until Friday at the earliest as the cold spell continues the decimate the fixture list. As mentioned in another post there are two “jumpers’ bumpers” fixtures taking place at the end of this week and of course, the all-weather fixtures should be fine. We also have the last Thursday of the Carnival on the 1st March out in Dubai at Meydan to look forward to so there are reasons to be cheerful.
I will be getting involved today and have a bet at each of the two meetings.
At 3.30 down at Lingfiled they go over the mile for the British Stallion Studs/32Red EBF Fillies' Conditions Stakes. Carolinae has been in fine fettle of late and has a track and trip record of three wins from four runs, the other time she was third. The chestnut mare would require a career-best performance today off a mark of 92 but will get the lead she requires in this field with front-running types all around her which should set it up perfectly for her turning for home. Help yourself to the best price 7-4.
The Bet Scoop6 At totesport.com Handicap at Chelmsford City off at 4.15 has a number of non-runners, I assume due to travel problems, and now looks a great chance for Shamshon to get back to winning ways. The seven-year-old hasn’t troubled the judge for a while but the Eyeshields are back on today and off the back of his recent losing run he is on a dangerous looking mark of 79 – was a 100+ horse once upon a time and his last win was off 87. You can get 5-4 and I have it.
