Keith's Notebook Horses 1st October 2020

Apologies for the wait since the last edition of Keith's notebook, September was a nightmare for fiddly little jobs getting in the way but I have still been watching as much racing as possible and there are 14 new horses on the list.

You will notice that the main list is vastly reduced and this is simply because some the the Horses had been on the Notebook List too long. Ideally I like to see horses that have caught the eye back out fairly quickly, certainly within a few weeks at most, so with that in mind all horses with over 60 days on the list have been removed.

Notebook runners since last time.

September wasn't a vintage month for the Notebook, we had 21 runners and 8 winners for a level stakes profit of 1.56 points on the month. This would have been higher if I had made the cull to the list sooner as many of the losers were making their seasonal reappearance.

The best winner by far was MR LUPTON who won well at the Curragh and was bscked in from 9/1 to 11/2.

New Notebook Horses

These are the horses that caught my eye since last time.

Capla Spirit½ length 3rd at Wolverhampton, hung right closing stages, would have won if kept straight.,
ChocoyaTook command 1 furlong out at Kempton and quicken clear. Needs to prove he is as good on turf though.
CopinetCaught the eye when second on debut at Wolverhampton, made a lot of headway late on.
Dutch CoedSlowly away over the extended mile at Hamilton but made up a lot of ground to take second, kept on well.
Embarked6 lengths ahead of the third home at Leicester on debut, only narrowly failed to catch the odds on winner.
FaisalBack on the list after a very easy hands and heels win under Holly Doyle. This horse is special
Glowing For GoldWolverhampton, only just failed after making a strong challenge in the closing stages.
Majestic DawnLeft all previous form behind when 40/1 winner of the Cambridgeshire. Could be Group class if he continues to progress.
NickelsonthedimeVery promising hurdle debut at Warwick, ran on really well in the closing stages, just failed
Ocean WindFollowed up eye-catching maiden with a nice win over 2m 2f despite traffic problems. Series Cesarawich contender.
Royal MarineStepped up to 1m 2f at Newbury and everything went wrong, slow start, short of room, hung left and yet still got to within a neck of the winner.
The Triple PillarThird ½ length behind the winner on hurdle debut. Pressed the leaders right to the line.
Third KingdomLooks to have a great future after winning easily at Newcastle.
Thunder MoonHas gone to the head of the 1000 Gns market after comfortable Curragh win despite meeting trouble in running. Major contender for the Dewhurst.

Current Notebook List

There are currently 19 horses in my Notebook and Keith's Inner Circle will be informed when they next run.

As You LikeOnly just held, kept on well, will win a race of this nature before too long.
Capla Spirit½ length 3rd at Wolverhampton, hung right closing stages, would have won if kept straight.,
ChocoyaTook command 1 furlong out at Kempton and quicken clear. Needs to prove he is as good on turf though.
CopinetCaught the eye when second on debut at Wolverhampton, made a lot of headway late on.
CorvairMissed the break for the second race in a row, over 7f at Goodwood, ran on well to take 5th just 2½ lengths adrift of the winner . Will be a lot closer when he gets a good start out of the stall
Dutch CoedSlowly away over the extended mile at Hamilton but made up a lot of ground to take second, kept on well.
Embarked6 lengths ahead of the third home at Leicester on debut, only narrowly failed to catch the odds on winner.

Ocean WindFollowed up eye-catching maiden with a nice win over 2m 2f despite traffic problems. Series Cesarawich contender.
Raging RascalSlow start on debut at Goodwood (7f) but one the penny dropped made up loads of ground to take second in the final stride keeping on well. Will improve for the run.
Royal MarineStepped up to 1m 2f at Newbury and everything went wrong, slow start, short of room, hung left and yet still got to within a neck of the winner.
The Triple PillarThird ½ length behind the winner on hurdle debut. Pressed the leaders right to the line.

What is Keith’s Notebook?

Keith’s Notebook is a weekly horse tracker blog from Keith Bond – the resident professional horse racing tipster here at Free Racing Tips.

Sent out via email to all registered FRT members free every Wednesday afternoon, Keith’s Notebook details Keith’s thoughts and opinions from the last seven days of racing.

You’ll discover:

  • Which horses have caught Keith’s eye, and why.
  • Keith’s shortlist of “ones to watch” next time they race.
  • Keith’s updated thoughts on past Notebook horses.

How should I use Keith’s Notebook?

It’s important to note that the horses mentioned in Keith’s Notebook are NOT tips.

Keith has spotted something in these horses during a race that has made his spidey-senses tingle. If they run again at a certain course, or over a certain distance, or in a certain type of race, then Keith will want to take a closer look, before deciding whether they are worthy of being an official Notebook tip.
Some months, you can count the number of actual Notebook tips on one hand. That’s why the strike rate is so high. Keith very much prefers quality over quantity when it comes to his Notebook Horses!

Most people add Keith’s Notebook Horses to a horse tracker app, which will notify them when those horses are due to run again. (This is exactly what Keith does!)

Keith’s VIP Club members are also notified by email when any of his Notebook Horses turn into an official tip.

What’s the best horse tracker app?

The easiest way to keep track of all my notebook horses (plus any horses you’re tracking yourself) is via bet365’s ‘My Horses’ horse track app, which allows you to create a portfolio of your favourite horses.

You’ll get reminders when they are due to run, and can keep track of their performance by adding your own notes and thoughts to each horse

“Well done Keith. Shows the benefit of keeping a notebook. Excellent tipping as usual ”

Danny May, Southampton

“Loving the Notebook! It shows Keith really knows what he’s looking at when watching a race. Top man! ”

David Jones, Romford

“I also use other sites to keep track of horses of interest. Pick up the next day's racing paper from my local bookies and check them out the evening before. I’m not one for betting on favs so try and look for a bit of value in my selections.”

Alex Black, North Lanarkshire
