Ribchester has just smashed the course record at Ascot and with Firm creeping into the going we have the potential for a possible strong bias. By means of a bit of fun I will test this theory by posting up possible bets in all handicaps. There will be multiple selections but to BFSP the possibility of profit over the week should the going remain fast is realistic.

I remain unconvinced, looking at the times, that the ground has any firm in it. I think the clerks have done a good job of taking the firm out of the course and with temp’s modest today I think it would be prudent to draw stumps even though I have the lists prepared.
61 plays PL +36 pts to BFSP before comm 59% ROI
FOOTNOTE – Perhaps I was premature in drawing a line on Saturday after all the research is based on Firm being present in the going description regardless and also the painful fact that the two lists for the two Saturday Handicaps contained Snoana who won at 40.0 and Outdo who won at 42.0 !!
If there is any interest I will be happy to demonstrate how the horses running against the bias can be bet profitably next time out, in particular at Newmarket where they have done very well historically
