You ok hun?

Derby quarter finals tonight. Think I've spotted a bit of ew value left. I was looking at Drive on Tipp today and going through all his attributes and I went to check his price on PP. I was expecting to see him around the 20s mark. He's 33/1. I think he is quite a bit overpriced at this. Incidentally, he is only 20s with BS. Anyway, the reasons for backing him are as follows

* He is 3 yrs 8 mths old, around the age most dogs peak.
*He's with a top trainer in Graham Holland.
* He has a 75% career strike rate for top 3 finishes.
*He appears to be coming to the boil at the right time and has steadily improved through every round.
*Did 29.35 in the first round of last yrs derby and got knocked out at the qf stage after being badly baulked.
*There's every possibility that he will be able to replicate that 29.35 this year and possibly even better it considering his age.

He has a very tough heat tonight and it will be tough to get through. That's a big caveat. If he makes it through tonight with continued improvement he has a great chance imo. He is an inside seed so it's very hard to get Trap 1 but he has it tonight.

It's very hard to make money backing dogs. There's very little room for mistakes and accidents and trouble often happen. He is amazing value at 33s ew first 4. I wouldn't be going bananas but it just really stood out to me as a good bet. Also, for anyone going tonight, I'd have a small double on Totos Park and Drive on Tipp @ around 24/1. I also did a ~100/1 treble of whoops jack along with the other two. I'm on Whoops Jack at 50s antepost but I thought he was brutal last week tbh so I'm hoping the spike he got was an excuse for that run. Anyway, enjoy all in attendance tonight.

Looks plenty short for a horse that's 0/7 over any distance greater than 2 miles in Ireland and GB.

Was told to back it by someone associated with the stable, that usually gives good info. Would agree it's pretty short for the type of race.

Market usually best guide for Byrnes' horses. If you think it looks too big, there's a good reason.
