A good first day with Mount Logan ensuring a 9.25 point profit. He won that in gritty fashion and needed every ounce of the extra stamina he has.
I don’t want to make excuses for Confessional but the ground was riding like Good come race time and he is best on softer, albeit he has performed on it. I didnt think it would dry out that much. Either way I am not sure if it made all the difference and I wouldn’t have picked the winner as although she was unexposed (and you can put a line through any poor run at York, esp as it was her first go on Good to Firm) she was coming down 1 furlong on a quick track and, based on her last few runs, i wouldn’t have been sure if that would suit. Anyway, Confessional never looked comfortable and he could never get in a handy position.
There will be no bets tomorrow.
The only race that interests me is the lucky last but it looks a minefield. It is not helped by the fact I cant seem to find any pace setters drawn low, which I like here over 7f. Saucy Minx and Fiftyshadesofgrey may carry some change of mine for interest, but that is only after a cursory glance and the latter is drawn in the next county and will need an awful lot of luck in running. Andrew Balding’s runner is also interesting as he does have winners over this trip here.
Mark Johnston…the bugger had a big priced winner in a handicap for the first time since 2010 and the lack of money was no barrier, for the only one of his handicappers that I didn’t have any change on! Sods law. That was some training performance.
There will be the usual Tip of The Day if I can find anything.
Good Luck with any Goodwood bets you have tomorrow. I wouldn’t usually bet in most of those race types so I wont start now.
