Scoop6 Friday 7th April 2017

The tote scoop6 is a fantastic pool bet which gives you the chance to win a fortune for a £2 stake.

The challenge is to select all 6 winners from 6 races during Saturday meetings.

If you meet this challenge you will win a share of the scoop6 win fund, which is frequently worth over £1 million, and you will also get the chance to play for the scoop6 bonus fund by picking the winner of a race the following Saturday.

Even if you fail to select all six winners you can win a share of the scoop6 place fund if your selections place in each of the 6 races. Even this lower prize has paid out over £1000 per winner 11 times in the last 12 months. All this for a £2 stake!

Course winner. Latest win here in December. Seventh of 8 in novice hurdle (6/1) at Southwell (15.7f, good) 10 days ago. Back down in trip. Fairly useful on the Flat, poor on last Flat run.

Verdict

HAMMER GUN is in the form of his life right now and rates the one to beat now turned out under a penalty after scoring with over four lengths in hand at Southwell nine days ago. He struck at Chelmsford on his penultimate outing to demonstrate his versatility and a five-timer may well be on the cards. Believe It has been raised 5lb for his last-time-out C&D win but is considered the main danger ahead of New Agenda, who has an absence to overcome.

Verdict

HAMMER GUN is thriving and a fifth success on the bounce beckons. Cape Banjo and the well-handicapped Lunar Deity are also considered.

14/1, first run since leaving Ed McMahon when bit below form fifth of 10 in handicap at Chelmsford City (5f) 22 days ago. Visor on 1st time.

Verdict

Childesplay has been running with credit over 7f of late and, having won over 6f in the past, she is expected to give another good account now dropping back in trip. Marginal preference, however, is for ASSERTIVE AGENT, who is only 4lb higher than when striking over track and trip on her penultimate outing. Arize has been holding her form well over 7f of late and could be keeping on well late in the day to pick up some place money.

Verdict

CHILDESPLAY could find the drop back to 6f for the first time this year in her favour and might be able to take advantage of a falling handicap mark with the booking of a good-value claimer taking the eye. Be Royale ran encouragingly back from 10 weeks off over 7f last week and is entitled to come on for that, while K'Gari Spirit would have claims if bouncing back from a below-par run last time.

Thrice-raced maiden. 100/1, last of 11 in maiden at Fairyhouse (6f, heavy), weakening quickly. Off 6 months. Significantly up in trip. Makes handicap debut.

Verdict

Elusive Approach won nicely over 7f here last week and looks sure to go close again, but slight preference is for other last-time-out scorer TENNESSE WALTZ. He won even more impressively than the former a week earlier over this C&D and a 6lb rise might not be enough to anchor him if arriving in the same mood. Alans Pride struck the crossbar here when last sighted and should give another good account, while Easy Boy and Set To Fire are others to note.

Verdict

SET TO FIRE hinted at a revival when making late headway on her recent first start for this yard and might be worth chancing as she's potentially well treated on her best form. Recent course winners Tennesse Waltz and Elusive Approach are a couple of obvious dangers.

Verdict

Joesph O''Brien is triple handed here with his LIGETI looking the one to side with on the back of his standard setting runs as of late. A pair of victories were followed by a pair of useful seconds here, including over course and distance latest, and he is the one to beat here. Venezia and Time For Mabel were third and fifth in that race respectively and are entitled to be thereabouts once again while Ringside Humour may be worth a second look making his seasonal reappearance from 5lb lower than his last winning mark.

Verdict

LIGETI has built up a fine record at this course in recent months and might be up to notching another win if first-time cheekpieces see him pull out a bit more. Aidan O'Brien's Udogo can reverse last month's course form with Specific Gravity on these slightly better terms and may prove next best ahead of Ringside Humour.

Verdict

Settle For Red remains dangerous having narrowly failed to land the spoils over a mile last time and steps up in trip now while War Room is a previous course winner who needs respecting. However, TEMASEK STAR gets the vote having been left on the same mark he has been running consistently from lately and only needs a small amount of improvement to play a major role in the finish over a slightly reduced distance. Sea of Blue represents powerful connections and needs a market check.

Verdict

SEA OF BLUE needs things to fall right but she's in better nick than recent form figures might imply and gets the nod for Joseph O'Brien. Locus Standi will be a threat if bouncing back to the form he showed when scoring here last month, while Khabaray should still be competitive after a 3 lb rise for last month's 1m win here.
