Scoop6 Friday 13th July 2018

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!

Opened her account off 3 lb higher in 6f Doncaster nursery last year. Has failed to reproduce that form for new yard so far this season but it's too soon to write her off.

Verdict

BALTIC PRINCE boasts course winning form and arrives here in excellent nick having gone down by a narrow margin on his latest start at Carlisle. The return to a mile should prove no issue and he can return to winning ways. Coviglia comes into this in search of a hat-trick of wins having gone up 10lb for successes at Wolverhampton and Ayr so warrants respect along with My Amigo, whose front-running tactics could get a few of these in trouble.

Verdict

It's been a while since MY AMIGO last got his head in front but has plenty going for him otherwise. He is marginally preferred to Dark Confidant, who left the impression that he's working his way back to form at Sandown recently. Aprovado and Gabrial's Kaka have both slipped to handy marks but the latter has been done no favours by the draw.

Showed further improvement to make it 3 wins from 4 starts for the season at Newton Abbot last week and remains very much one to follow.

Verdict

Plenty of these have claims but the nod goes to LOTUS POND, who has won both of his starts since returning from a spell between the flags. The handicapper has hit him with a big rise but he did it very easily last time out and may have more to offer. Fifty Shades is another in-form participant who can be expected to go very well for the yard that sponsors this race. Others to consider are Amore Alato, Lamb Or Cod and More Buck's.

Verdict

The progressive FIFTY SHADES remains very much one to follow and can defy a penalty. The thriving Lotus Pond is the biggest threat ahead of Super Scorpion.

Improved when opening her account in 7f Redcar seller 3 weeks ago but another sizeable step forward required if she's to follow up here.

Verdict

Jaayiz got off the mark for Richard Hannon at Brighton last time and this two-year-old should have more to give despite a wider-than-ideal draw, while Yellow Fire represents in-form connections but is another who hasn't been done any favours by the draw. It could be worth chancing FIVE HELMETS, who boasts course experience and shaped as though the step up to 7f would suit him perfectly at Haydock last time.

Verdict

There should be better to come from FIVE HELMETS now that he steps up to 7f. Indeed, Tom Dascombe's charge shaped as though crying out for a stiffer test when fourth over 6f at Haydock last week and he gets the nod ahead of Brighton winner Jaayiz, who also promises to be suited by going up in trip. Yellow Fire and Revich can do battle for minor honours.

Won 3 times over hurdles for Tim Vaughan and shaped with promise on May's stable debut following an absence. Checked out quite tamely at Hexham since and cheekpieces now tried.

Verdict

Nicky Henderson's BARKIS combined well with Alan Doyle when scoring at Newton Abbott last week and having escaped a rise for that victory in a conditional jockeys' contest, he can follow up, with the only penalty being his rider losing 3lb from his claim in the interim period. Last-start course winner Grams And Ounces has to be considered, while Caviar D'Allen is interesting reverting to hurdles and having had a wind operation since finishing second at Fakenham in the spring.

Verdict

BARKIS ran out a ready winner under this rider at Newton Abbot last week, and given he escapes a penalty for that, his follow-up claims must be bright. This is a deeper race though, with Caviar d'Allen a definite threat, while money for Take The High Road starting out for David Pipe would look very significant.

Notched third C&D victory off 3 lb higher mark in September but he's failed to fire in handful of runs so far this season.

Verdict

Rene Mathis did it well here in claiming company last month but could find life tougher now back in handicaps, while Our Charlie Brown travelled nicely at Musselburgh when fourth last time after being denied a clear run and looks poised to run a big race. TADAAWOL, however, did it well in the Carlisle Bell consolation race last time and could be hard to peg back if starting well now back at 7f.

Verdict

The vote goes to TWIN APPEAL, who wasn't disgraced in a Class 3 event at Leicester recently, he's on a good mark and has the plum draw. Our Charlie Brown is also well-drawn and will be a danger to all if getting the breaks, while Rene Mathis, who resumed winning ways in a C&D claimer a fortnight ago, should also have a part to play in the finish and Logi enters calculations, too.

Improved to readily win 11-runner handicap hurdle at Worcester (20f, good) 9 days ago. Escapes a penalty as that was a conditionals' event and the one to beat even though this a stronger race.

Verdict

VOODOO DOLL has proved a tough nut to crack the last twice and is backed to land the hat-trick having only been raised 2lb following his narrow victory at Worcester. Court Duty impressed when eight lengths clear at that same venue last week and he escapes a penalty so is a big danger. Burst Ya Bubble and the consistent frame-hitter Coeur Tantre are others who warrant respect.

Verdict

A competitive field but it's still hard to get away from COURT DUTY who escapes a penalty for last week's easy win at Worcester and is effectively 5lb lower if Richard Patrick's claim is taken into account. Burst Ya Bubble, the hat-trick seeking Voodoo Doll and Dan Skelton's Starcrossed are all on the shortlist.
