Published: December 13, 2019
Having developed an interest in racing whilst in college some years ago, James has worked in many areas of the industry, including a stint hiding his face on radio! From 2008 until 2017, he ran a successful tipping service and has had shares in numerous horses including the wonderful Fast Shot. Unsurprisingly given some of the horses he has bought shares in, his punting passions lie in sprint handicaps on both the turf and All-Weather surfaces!

James Boyle smashed in 10/1 & 5/1 winners on Saturday. View today’s selections below.

5:00 Chelmsford – Harbour Vision – 1pt @ 12/1

Removing headgear can also have a positive effect and HARBOUR VISION, who has not actually won in the visor worn for his last seven starts, might be set to improve. I don’t think he needs assistance over a mile anyway and after a few mediocre performances over a variety of trips at different tracks, he has been found an ideal race. Indeed, over 7f or a mile around here, he’s 4-11 and fibresand at Southwell didn’t appear to suit last time so there’s no point in taking that form too literally. He’s well drawn, should get a hard pace to sit off and with luck in the run, I think he’ll go close off a 4lbs lower mark when compared to his last win.

6:00 Chelmsford – Jem Scuttle – 1pt @ 12/1

Declan Carroll’s yard have been in good form of late, 6-27 in the past six weeks, and JEM SCUTTLE is one I’ve been watching. He hasn’t reached the level of last winter, as can be seen by the fact that he’s now 10lbs below his peak rating, but three of his last four runs have come over a mile and the one 7f race he ran in did not pan out properly as he was keen and had to make his own running on the straight course at Newcastle. Getting onto a turning track at this trip will suit better and he shaped well for much of the race on his first fibresand outing last time. He looks underrated as long as the polytrack isn’t a problem (sire 4-21 here).

7:30 Chelmsford – Enthaar – 1pt @ 15/2

ENTHAAR, from a raw talent point of view, wouldn’t be as talented as some of these when they bring their top level to the table but circumstance can hold horses back, or bring them forward, and it’s possible they could go a million miles an hour up top. As a result, those who can go a reasonable gallop in their own time but grind it out for longer than most could come to the fore and Stuart Williams’ charge fits the bill here. He’s also very unexposed at the minimum trip on the All-Weather and was better than the form suggests at Kempton last time when the draw forced unsuitable tactics to be in use. This might pan out perfectly.
