Shriners Hospitals for Children Open – betting tips 26


The PGA Tour heads to the desert for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and as you’d expect for one of the driest places on earth, there is plenty of room off the tee. Rod Pampling was a shock winner twelve months ago and it’s always worth chancing your arm in Vegas. trey mullinax

Trey Mullinax struggled last season, losing his playing rights but he’s got a few opportunities early in the wraparound schedule in these weaker fields and he needs to make the most of them.

Last year he finished T36 but threatened to finish higher because TPC Summerlin dplays to his strengths. Like 2015 winner Smylie Kaufman he is a winner on the Tour and one of the biggest hitters around. For the season just gone he averaged 309.6 yards off the tee, the ninth longest on the PGA Tour.

A good putter, he needs to improve his approach play but off some monster drives he might be able to drive, chip and putt his way to victory. Currently first alternate, Rod Pampling got a late entry into the Shriners to win and history could repeat itself.

    Craig ..with Frankie on board Almandin in the MC it would not surprise me if the horse does the double.
    This distance suits his style perfectly.
    Of the britsh, now that he is def in..Thomas Hobson looks likely to run well and is worth a few dollars ew.
    Have a good weekend and Nov 7th.

      Yeah I like almandin as well Rick. He would be my win bet in this but I’m going to wait to see what the draw hands everyone before I put money down an anything.

      What do you think of world approval in the breeders cup mile Rick. Since he’s been dropped back to a mile he’s looked a different animal in his last couple of starts and I really liked the way he won the woodbine mile from the front last time. I don’t really like any of the European runners as I think ribchester could be over the top now and all of roly poly’s form is against other fillies. If he’s still 3/1 come Saturday I think that might look a big price.

        I have looked quite closely at the mile Craig but can’t say I fancy the fav very much..tend to agree with Ribchester.. always liked the horse but just can’t see it at Del Mar…his final race.
        I actually like one of ours in this one though…Suedois 12/1.
        Always known as the maybe horse in top class sprints in the UK as finished off well but not enough early to go with the real speedsters.
        His trainer is very shrewd and wins lots of good races over here and is not to be underestimated.
        He tried the horse over a mile in the US a couple of weeks ago and he won as though he should always have been running at that distance and the race he won was full of very good horses.
        That race is a great form race for the BC Mile historically as well.
        I think he will run well and the fact that he has been over there for a few weeks now is also in his favour.
        Expect him to come late..think the track will suit.

    Just going with some bigger prices in this as SP history for this event shows apart from a 3 year stretch just after 2010 that outsiders prosper in this.

    Benny An 40/1
    Brandon hagy 100/1
    Shawn stefani 100/1
    Rob Oppenheim 125/1
    Jonas blixt 250/1

      Frankie is a great jockey but he has been butchering horses recently in his Melbourne Cup rides and polaxing other horses along the way.

      • Craig h

        In your opinion who’s the top jockeys in oz just now. Over the years there’s been a few come to the UK to ride during the summer and all the ones that spring to mind have done really well, with Hugh bowman being my fav. Although Craig Williams and kerrin mcavoy done me a few good turns and even james McDonald last year before his ban was good to follow.

        • Greg

          You named a number of my favourites there Craig. McEvoy, Bowman and Damien Oliver are great staying jockeys. Ollie is out now with suspension as you know. James McDonald will be a superstar. Zac Purton is also exceptional. Regan Bayliss is a great young rider with a bright future; he has a good head on his shoulders. But for me Blake Shinn is the man in supreme form right now. Very talented and consistent. He rode four winners last Saturday on Cox Plate day. And he nearly beat Winx on Humidor. Watch the replay of his ride in The Cox. 10/10.

          Hughie Bowman hasn’t been riding great the past few weeks but that’s understandable as I think he has been riding to keep out of trouble so he wouldn’t get suspended for his ride on Winx. Now that he has done the job on Winx and the pressure is off I think you’ll find Hughie back to his best over The Flemington carnival and I would follow him.

          So I’ll be following Shinn, Bowman, McEvoy, Bayliss if he gets opportunities, Purton, McDonald. There are so many mate.

          Don’t get me wrong on Frankie Dettori. We love him here in Oz. He always supports Australian racing. He is one of the greatest jockeys ever. Just in recent years his decision making in The Melbourne Cup hasn’t been great. The Cup is one of the few big races he has yet to win. And he hasn’t too many years left so I think he’s getting a little too keen. But hey he is on a great horse this year and a huge chance to finally win it.

            Are Corey Brown and Glen Boss still going? What about the Cassidy brothers?? Darren Beadman must surely be retired! John Hawkes in the cerise colours good memories! Gai Waterhouse

  • kaiser

    one last big double on FRL market
    Hoffman 40-1 into JI 40-1 on the lpga…she could be the next big thing on the ladies

  • Greg

    Aah Ronnie. You’re from my vintage mate. John Hawkes has taken a back seat and handed the reins over to his sons Michael and Wayne. Darren Beadman retired some time ago. I think he became quite ill there for a while but I believe he is ok now. He is currently assistant trainer under James Cummings (grandson of the great Bart Cummings) for The Godolphin stable. Corey Brown is also linked to the godolphins and riding for them after a stint in Singapore. He’s riding well too. Glenn Boss is now riding in Singapore. His opportunities seemed to dry up a couple of years ago here. Glenn said he believed the reason was that he was no longer linked to a top stable and that because he spoke his mind he rubbed some owners up the wrong way. You can be yesterday’s hero very quickly in the racing game lol. Jimmy ‘The Pumper’ Cassidy retired a couple of years ago. His brother Larry is back riding in Queensland after a years lay off with some serious knee and leg fracture injuries.

    Speaking of Larry. He rode Winx once to kick off the horses 22 run winning streak back in 2015. You tube ‘Winx Sunshine Coast Guineas 2015’. And watch Winx come from last in an amazing run. Incredible.

    Flip side of the golf coin this week. 15 mins from a 150/1 winner potentially and Spaun can’t even place. 🤔
