This is an extra V75 for Boxing Day at Solvalla in Sweden, and it must be said a much better quality group of races than went around last Saturday, and in which our picks did not pan out to our advantage - translated - they sucked.
This is similar to the fields in which we did well and so we will not be straying to far from those predictions, assuming that in the past ten days the horses have not lost their form.
V75-1 Baroness Karsks Mares Elite 1640m: This race for the elite mares is a strong international field and I have gone with the consistent Canaka B.F. (5), who placed in Group one events when younger, Denmark's Premance Simoni (3) and Finnish invader Beatasine (9). 5-3-9
V75-2 Klass II 2140m: Julio de Luxe (6), Corleone Boko (5), Divas Revansch (10), Bear Dancer (9), Linus Wibb (12) 6-5-10-9-12
V75-3 Gold Division final 2140m: Maharajah (2) is a champion, the others in this very good field are not. Simple really. 2
V75-4 2YOs Vinterfavoriten 2140m: Orion Tilly (4) and Soonerorlater (1) are classy juveniles with their whole careers ahead of them, and while both made mistakes last time out, if they do everything right, it should be between these two.. 4 (1)
V75-5 Klass I 2140m: Vacqueras (4) got back on track with a win last time out, but Big Bill Back (11), was also super impressive winning his last start. Greve E (5) and Monte Major (3) should also be included. 4-11-5-3
V75-6 Bronze Division 2140m Mellby Viking (11) was second last time out, after being parked outside the winner all the way. He is a tough campaigner and my anchor here. 11
V75-7 Silver Division 2140m: Stig Johnasson's German-bred Chapeau (3) is a very classy horse while Stelton (1) was super last start and as the winner of four in a row is a strong alternative. 3 (1)
60 combinations $5, + 1 alternative $10, + 2 alternative $20
Race 5: Canaka BlFl (5),
Race 6: : Julio de Luxe (6),
Race 7: Maharajah (2).
Race 8: Orion Tilly (4)
Race 9: Vacqueras (4),
Race 10: Mellby Viking (11).
Race 11: Chapeau (3)
PS. Have a lovely Festive season with your family
