Value Bets – Tuesday September 3rd

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!

Racing tipster James Boyle has picked out two selections from Tuesday’s card at Kempton.

Saturday’s selections went rather well courtesy of Calder Prince winning at 18/1! He took a huge walk in the market but never looked like being denied and helped to end August on a positive note. The other trio lost, but Brandy Spirit placed having been advised at 16/1 (backed into 9/2) and Shepherd’s Purse would have been much closer if it wasn’t for the lack of a clear run. Admirality ran OK, not great.

6:45pm Kempton – Fronsac – 1pt win @ 40/1

It’s definitely optimistic to suggest FRONSAC is a bet given that he has been beaten 13 & 22 lengths on his last couple of starts but there are some excuses in place for the 4-year-old and we won’t get many opportunities to punt a son of Frankel at 40/1 in a Class 5, 0-70 handicap on the All-Weather!

Daniel Kubler’s charge didn’t stay 1m 2f on testing ground at Salisbury last time out so we can ignore that run and the time before, when lining out over C&D, he had a wide trip throughout in a race where those who were on the lead were not coming back to the rest of the field.

That was also his first outing for 261 days and I think he’s better judged on two of his 3-year-old spins on the All-Weather last year, in which there was definite promise. Maybe that ability is long gone, given his last two performances, but at such a big price I’m inclined to forgive and take a chance.

7:15pm Kempton – Crimewave – 1pt win @ 14/1

CRIMEWAVE is yet to get off the mark in nine attempts to date and has been sent off at single-figured odds for each of his last five outings, so connections will no doubt be somewhat frustrated that they haven’t managed to find the key to the son of Teofilo.

However, returning to the All-Weather could do the trick as the last time he raced over this sort of distance on an artificial surface, he split the now 102-rated New King and 92-rated Fields Of Athenry when debuting for new trainer Tom Clover last December.

His only subsequent run away from turf came over 1m 2f, a trip he failed to get, and there has been reasons for his somewhat below-par performances the last twice as blinkers lit him up too much behind a thrown-in rival at Newmarket before 6f proved a trip too short at Lingfield. With only a tongue-tie for the first time in use today and the return to a turning track on the AW, 14/1 appeals.
