Lucky 15

Friday already, dear reader. Not overburdened with action today, but I'm sure we can find a few gems.

Nice winner yesterday, but couldn't surround it with others. One of these days ... but even Rossa Ryan, with a great book of rides, drew a blank.

Jumping on Friday February 16 comes courtesy of Fakenham and Kelso, with all-weather fare from Dundalk and Wolverhampton. NINE races on the Dunstall Park Tapeta - that will do very nicely, thank you.

This is an example of how to put together a Lucky 15 - if you can improve upon my selections (of course you can), then go for it!

The odds can fluctuate between publishing our pieces and race-time. As a guide, a £0.50p win Lucky 15 on today's selections, at the prices, and assuming all four won, would return around £440 for your total £7.50 stake.

Popular legend confirms that Fred, 'The Bonus King,' invented the 'Lucky' series of bets and their bonuses. Want the lowdown - all the ins and outs? My colleague Adam has set out all you need to know with this handy guide - take a look by clicking here.

Lucky 15 tips, Friday


  • 17.45 - Alrazeen @ 11/8
  • 18.45 - Al Rufaa @ 11/4
  • 19.15 - Strategic Fortune @ 13/2
  • 19.45 - Ciotog @ 9/2

17.45 - Alrazeen @ 11/8

Two great ladies of racing combine - trainer Gay Kellaway and jockey Hayley Turner.

Alrazeen is a 3-yr-old twice-raced novice who took one of these contests at Southwell nearly a month ago, under Hayley. The partnership bid to add another carrying a penalty, but there was much to admire about that last run.

Despite showing signs of greenness he beat a previous scorer in Siempre Arturo of the Kublers, and can follow-up this afternoon. He's a son of the mighty miler Galileo Gold, so stretching out over 1m 4f might not seem the obvious route, but he stayed resolutely at Southwell (1m 3f) and looks a very promising type.

18.45 - Al Rufaa @ 11/4

The Kublers feature properly here with their Kingman gelding Al Rufaa. An experienced 7-yr-old, who has been rated as high as 105 in the past and has had spells with the Gosdens, and Charlie Fellows.

Rossa Ryan has been booked - he was on board at Chester in the spring - and this one ran really well in an £18k affair at Lingfield last month after a 57-day break.

He's won here before and this looks a pretty soft Class 3 compared to Lingers. Time for Rossa to get back to winning ways, off a mark of 88.

19.15 - Strategic Fortune @ 13/2

A value shout in a trappy-looking contest.

The likely fav Tonal has plenty going for him, and Billy Loughnane is in the plate, too. He's penalised though for scoring 6 days ago and that could be his undoing. Strategic Fortune is a course-and-distance winner and was beaten just a head here last time in mid-December, at this quirky 9.5f distance.

That was a flash of the kind of form shown when winning here last year off 55, and he's only 2lb higher now. Liam Keniry rides for trainer John Butler.

19.45 - Ciotog @ 9/2

The great Billy Loughnane is up top, for his Dad. This is an ex-Brian Meehan, 6-yr-old Dandy Man gelding who ran with credit in a higher grade at Southwell last month.

He's won here at the trip previously, and has slipped to a mark of 69, a pound less than for his last success. The stars look to be aligning nicely and I can see him being ultra-competitive this evening under the Dunstall Park lights.

If you're playing, have fun - and as always, good luck.
