JumpingJockey.com has confirmed that it will be providing free lay and back tips for this year's Champions Day at Newmarket for on line sports-betting fans. The racing includes the Ceasarewitch, the Dewhurst and the Champion Stakes all on the same day.
Tips include short-price lays (odds of 3/1 and below), forecast favourite and second favourite lays based on tissue price as published by the Racing Post, favourite backers (win) tips and value back (win and place) tips. Also included are 'market watch' tips for layers and backers. These tips allow punters to monitor the smart money on suspected weak favourites.
Tim Mehmet, director of JumpingJockey.com comments: "Our free tips will cover the entire race card and tips will be provided for each race; however, it's worth noting that our paid subscribers will have access to the race tips which we have shortlisted as having the best chance. Not all win tips will win and not all lay tips will lose. If punters wish to know which races to get involved in and which to avoid for all UK race meetings on the day, they can sign up for instant access on line via a secure on line system."
Typical stats for jumpingjockey.com include an average of 93% success for tissue price favourite lays, 83% success for short price favourite lays and better than 1 in 2 success for favourite backer (win) bets. The market watch service achieves 80% + success for favourite layers also, in total there were around 150 tips for lays alone. It's also worth noting that these tips are published the night before racing starts, this is by far the most difficult way to tip because the tipsters cannot react to changes such as going, non runners, jockey changes, negative comments from trainers, etc.
As for the racing itself, in the Cesarewitch, the Philip Hobbs trained Fair Along is favourite to emulate his stablemate Detroit City and win the race for the second successive. Fair Along is a firm JumpingJockey.com favourite and it will be interesting to see how he gets on. The other danger is the Luca Cumani trained Samurai Way. This horse has been the model of consistency all season, finishing runner up on no fewer than four occasions.
The final big two-year-old race of the season is the Darley Dewhurst Stakes. Last year's epic duel between Teofilo and Holy Roman Emperor is unlikely to be repeated. Jim Bolger's successor to Teofilo, New Approach, the unbeaten current favourite for next year's Guineas and Derby, is unlikely to line up, as are second and third favourites for the Guineas, Godolphins Rio De La Plata and Peter Chapple Hyams unbeaten Winker Watson. That leaves the race looking wide open. The Mark Johnson trained MacCartney is an interesting one, a very impressive winner at Newbury last time out.
In the Champion Stakes, Aidan O Brien's Eagle Mountain looks set to take them on as George Washington appears to be ruled out in order to have another tilt at the Breeders Cup. Second in the Derby to Authorized and runner up in the Irish equivalent to Soldier of Fortune, Eagle Mountain didn't seem to stay the one mile four Derby trip and the drop back to one mile two may be better suited. Authorized had a tough season and it appeared to catch up with him, Eagle Mountain likewise has had a busy season and any market confidence in him will be significant.
As ever, the JumpingJockey.com team would like to stress that these big events are very competitive and punters should enjoy the event and bet for fun rather than profit.
