Scoop6 Options Saturday 7th November 2015
As most of you will know the Scoop6 is horse racings version of the Lottery – six nominated races on a Saturday plus a bonus race – and “all” you have to do is find all six winners to get your share of the main pot (or six pales for the place aspect), then go after the winner of the bonus race the following week. Please note the word share – it’s a kitty that gets divided by the number of winners so if we all copy one set of horses we are sort of betting against each other so our suggestion is that you read and then decide to maybe add one or two of your own in to the mix- but then again its your money after all!
Do note you can bet one horse per race for a £2 stake to receive the full dividends – you can bet less and perm your selections but they multiply out accordingly – for example, one horse per race but two in the third race becomes 1 x 1 x 2 x 1 x 1 x 1 = 2 bets but 2 in each race would becomes 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 64 bets so do be careful with your staking!
1.50pm Doncaster – Not exactly an easy race to start with and up to 22 runners proves that to any punter. We do like the chances of the William Haggas trained Predominance here as the lightly raced three year old has so much more room for improvement than any of his rivals. After winning first time out he was possibly left with a bit too much to do when a fast finishing runner up at Newbury but this race will be run at a scorching pace which should suit him admirably. Highland Colori is a seven year old now but is most certainly well weighted at his best and gets the ground he seems to love the most – one for a place at a price perhaps?
2.05pm Wincanton – Another tricky contest though this time with fences in the way as well! Bertie Boru goes well fresh and the Philip Hobbs/Richard Johnson combination has been successful numerous times so far this season, and he is a bigger price than he ought to be in our opinion as is Carole’s Destrier who represents Neil Mulholland who had the winner disqualified on a technicality last year and deserves recompense.
2.20pm Doncaster – Lightning Moon races in the Godolphin colours and looks to make the most of a drop in class for his first win of the season. He hasn’t lived up to expectations (or his price tag) as a three year old but this is a lot easier than recent efforts and he really ought to make the most of his chance. Mobsta won a much lesser race but did so easily last time out and will appreciate underfoot conditions more than most and could yet be the surprise package here.
2.55pm Doncaster – Really tricky this one but Bella Nouf seems over priced and looks to be improving race on race for the excellent William Haggas and won comfortably enough last time out to suggest she deserves a rise in class this afternoon. Pandora could be another to consider as she is only a little behind the main participants on official ratings and wears a first time hood today that could yet make all the difference. Only a three year old and lightly raced there is room for improvement and Charlie Hills knows what he is doing as do all the Hills clan, making her victory very much a possibility.
3.15pm Wincanton – Jockey bookings suggest All Yours is the Paul Nicholls first string and if he has strengthened over the winter he could yet be a top class hurdler this season with plenty of room to improve after a mere six career starts, two of them victories. Irving is in the hands of the same trainer and has had a breathing operation which may yet make him in to a world beater – we know they think a lot of him at Ditcheat and you never know for certain in this game.
3.30pm Doncaster Just the 23 runners in this handicap to sort through but we have gone for Off Art who tries a mile and a half today after constantly running on over shorter trips. A good second last time out he looks to have been laid out for this race but is a massive price and rightly so. Luca Cumani sends Penhill here and although this would be a career best effort he is a class act and improving race on race – if we were to back two in the race they would be the ones.
