TIGER TIM in the 4.20 at NEWCASTLE today.

SILVANUS,my first selection back from a long break,failed to land the spoils yesterday,finishing in 5th position out of the 8 runners who took part. The selection did get a good break and set about to make the running but clearly was found wanting in the uphill climb to the finish, The horse was quoted overnight at 13/2 but drifted out markedly to a price of 16/1 at the off. That was not a good omen. Silvanus though,is an animal  to keep an eye on as the  beast  showed good early speed before fading on the uphill climb.  I  do expect this horse to enter the winners enclosure  very soon, providing  he gets a flatter track to display  the talent that lies within.Today’s selection is a Horse that is entered in the  4.20 at Newcastle, a class 4 Handicap over a distance of 7 furs. There are 13 horses declared to run in this contest and my  selection here is Horse No 13. TIGER TIM, trained by Jim Goldie and due to be ridden by  F. Lynch. This combination landed a 15/2 winner yesterday at Hamilton and I expect  them to  repeat the trick today at Newcastle,hopefully at the same sort of odds. The  Trainer has only had  a measly 22 winners from 231 runners in the last 90 days while the Jockey’s record over the same period shows that he has only  won 12 races from 90 runners. TIGER TIM’S last appearance at this venue  saw him being sent off as the 7/4 fav in a 6 furl contest,a race in which he finished 4th to  Bop  It , going down by less than  three lengths to the winner. He followed that up with an outing at Doncaster ,where again ,he was sent off as the fav at 11/4.. He finished 4th in that  16 horse contest,beaten by Bob,who is once again in opposition, and he finished  about 2 1/2 lths  behind the winner.. TIGER TIM was sent off as fav in his last 4 outings so clearly,this is a horse that has some ability. He has a record of 1 Win from 7 starts and I confidently expect an improvement in the win column of that record at the conclusion of today’s race.. He is presently quoted at odds of 6/1 and I expect that price to hold .TIGER TIM then is my selection today in the 4.20 at Newcastle.
