On Trend was running well but appeared to weaken quickly/lose interest as they turned for home. He doesn’t look like he fancies the game much at the moment and i thought he had a lot in his favour. We move onto today… 1.15 Newbury  Shaking Hands…This is not a race to get overly involved in, […]

On Trend…

Well and OK boxing day. It was nice to get the winner of the big race. SC with his proven stamina ran down cue card. But for a couple of horrendous errors, the final one ending in a fall, i think Long Run would have placed. But a great race. The Gold Cup gets more […]
