Tony Ennis Boxing Day Horse Racing Preview

December 23rd, 2013 by Tony Ennis

boxing day horse racing previewFirstly, I would like to wish all the website readers a very Happy Christmas and a profitable New Year!

We have to begin with the festive feature on Thursday, the King George Steeplechase which has a real open look to it. Cue Card will be one of the market leaders for this and rightly so after a very impressive display in the Betfair Chase at Haydock last time.

Colin Tizzard’s stable star is a possible Gold Cup contender this season and it’s certainly hard to knock his Haydock performance. However, he ran poorly in this race twelve months ago and at the price of 3/1 with William Hill I want to be against him around Kempton Park. It’s a race traditionally where we shouldn’t expect a shock, it’s been a tremendous race for following the market leader – eight of the last eleven have obliged.

Double Ross or Grandioso for the December Gold Cup

December 13th, 2013 by Tony Ennis

december gold cup bettingCheltenham takes centre stage this weekend and the December Gold Cup is the main betting event of the weekend. John’s Spirit did me a huge favour when landing the Paddy Power Gold cup last month after travelling superbly throughout the race. Jonjo O’Neill’s improving chaser won’t find it so easy from his revised handicap mark and I will be happy to look elsewhere.

A horse I’ve had in my mind to win a decent handicap chase this season is Double Ross (12/1 from Ladbrokes) and Nigel Twiston-Davies’ chaser gets my vote to at least make the frame. Double Ross showed some excellent form over hurdles last year, including a highly respectable third behind Salubrious at the Cheltenham festival.

Hennessy Gold Cup Betting Preview with Tony Ennis

November 28th, 2013 by Tony Ennis

hennessey gold cup betting previewA real pity that we didn’t get to see Jezki line up against Hurricane Fly in the Morgiana Hurdle two weeks ago after going strong on Jezki in my last blog.

Watching the race I’m convinced Jezki would have had the gears to at least give the defending champion a real race, anyway it wasn’t to be but we hopefully will see Jezki on Sunday in the Hatton’s Grace hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday. We did have a winning weekend last time around as our other 13/2 selection John’s Spirit stormed to victory in the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham.

Tony Ennis’s Betting Tips: Jezki to oust The Fly

November 14th, 2013 by Tony Ennis

jezki to oust the flySince my first blog we have witnessed two superb weeks in Horse Racing, from the European success at the Breeders Cup meet in California to the valiant European challenge down in Fleminton on Melbourne Cup day.

But the highlight of the last two weeks personally would still have to be the unbelievable achievements of Anthony Peadar McCoy and the magnificent ride on board Mountain Tunes to land career success number 4,000. The man has no peers and I’m sure as punters, he has dug many of you out of trouble over the last two decades, I know he’s saved me on many occasions!

Tony Ennis’s Breeders’ Cup Betting Preview

November 1st, 2013 by Tony Ennis

tony ennis breeders cup betting previewHello to all fans of the FREEbets blog, I’m delighted to have been asked to write fortnightly for the site and will do my best to look for winners and mention any horses that may be worth following based on what I’ve seen or heard over the last couple of weeks. I’m fortunate enough to work in the great sport of Horse Racing as a Racecourse Commentator and Presenter for Attheraces and look forward to writing for the website.

I’m keen to start by looking ahead to the weekend and what a weekend with some brilliant jump racing domestically plus two nights of the top-class action from Santa Anita which is covered live on Attheraces. The European raiding squad is fifteen-strong this year as we look to improve on our two winners quota of the last three seasons. The Friday night card is very much the prelude to the big night on Saturday but there are still four grade one races to get stuck into.

Derby Betting: Reasons to oppose Dawn Approach

May 30th, 2013 by GetYourTipsOut

derby betting reasons to oppose dawn approachAll eyes on Tattenham corner this weekend for a mouthwatering renewal of the Investec Derby on Epsom Downs, a race steeped in tradition, this year it revolves around Dawn Approach and his stamina dilemma. Jim Bolger seems convinced he’ll stay the unknown despite his breeding warning us all he won’t. There is no denying his impressive 2,000 Guineas romp on rain softened ground at Newmarket, but will class get him home? Can he really be opposed?

There is no doubt the Derby is a race that has taken plenty of winning over the years and the general consensus is that Dawn Approach will have to dig deeper than he ever has done before for Jim Bolger if he is to land back-to-back Classics and continue Godolphin’s long road to redemption.

2000 Guineas Betting Preview and Tips

May 4th, 2013 by GetYourTipsOut

2000 guineas betting preview and tipsDawn Approach will put his undisputed record on the line today as he takes on a field of twelve when bidding to give his trainer Jim Bolger his first taste of 2,000 Guineas glory.

An unmissable, mouthwatering renewal which could see Godolphin on the road to redemption as they seek to end a 14-year wait for a third 2,000 Guineas. After a week of damaging accusations, Al Zarooni has put a darkened tint on racing and today it can prove to punters and fans alike it still has a future, and a promising one at that.

It is being billed as a head-to-head between two unbeaten colts, with Dawn Approach narrowly heading favouritism for the first Classic of the season.

Whip Rule Debate: Who Protects the Victims?

April 19th, 2013 by GetYourTipsOut

horse racing whip debateRacing is often defined by the slenderest of margins, which horse wants it more come the finish line. Only Thursday evening at Ripon we saw a rare dead-heat as the judge couldn’t split the nostril hairs between Baccarat and Sandy Lane. Of course, these margins come down to many influential factors, like which horse got the run of the race, which had the luck in running or picked up best for pressure, but one underlining factor which can often define the outcome is which jockey wanted it more.

A motivation for victory which can often exceed the boundaries of the sport. Last weekend saw a controversial situation emerge as debatable as the whip rule itself. The reason for writing this Blog is Buckland, a horse many of you will be familiar with, was denied by a short head to the late lunging 25-1 shot Desert Recluse at Kempton.

Hans Adielsson’s gelding had been somewhat of a revelation on the all weather this season, and headed to Kempton on the brink of a five-timer upped in trip with spirits high. Nicole Nordblad who operated such a shrewd partnership with the horse rode him and he was well fancied on the day, backed in from 7′s to 7/2.
