By now the shrewd followers of Freebets.com racing tips will know to keep an eye on our Twitter feed for early prices, so here's hoping you picked up the 3/1 available on today's selection when tipped up last night. Amazing Blue Sky now heads the betting for the Class 6 Amateur Riders Handicap at 1.55 and should take all of the beating at odds of 9/4 available with most firms including Skybet and bet365.
Ruth Carr's charge is now 3lb lower compared to when scoring on turf at Thirsk last summer over a furlong further than today's trip and hinted that his turn could again be near when third here last month. The 9-year-old bay gelding was unusualy slow out of the stalls that day and a better break can put him bang there, now eased a further 1lb in the weights and dropped back a furlong in trip.
With the booking of Serena Brotherton also considered a plus, it's difficult to see anything spoiling the party. Kyllachykov turns out for a new yard having had eleven runs since last winning back in 2013, while Cherry Tiger is tried up in trip after blinkers failed to get him firing last time. Conversely Josie's Dream is stepped back in trip and has blinkers re-fitted in an effort to improve on a below form seventh and the rest will need to produce something special to stop Amazing Blue Sky.
