All in all a decent end to the month of August with a profit at York and Hint of a Tint taking the Irish Cambridgeshire last Sunday at 16/1.
Let's hope we can maintain that form as we open September's account tomorrow at Ascot and Haydock...
The Cleeve team
The curse of the non-runner strikes again with Battersea's withdrawal in the 14:35 at Haydock but we do have a replacement in Brian Ellison's Totalize.
Ellison loves a big race Haydock winner and has booked Danny Tudhope for the ride which is a positive. Totalize is lightly raced with just the 2 outings this term, a fine second to Seamour on his seasonal debut in here in May was followed by a disappointing effort in the Northumberland Plate a month later where he was never going with his normal zest.
Rested since then and knowing he goes well fresh we'll take an each way punt at double odds which look more than fair value. We know he gets the trip well, will like the underfoot conditions and is fresher than most.
1 point e/w Totalize @ 16/1 with Bet365
