Nalim – never really traveled and looked uncomfortable early on. I would back him again at that price, maybe he didnt like that form of heavy, or just had an off day – but at 8s I would have always backed him I think. The doubt is whether I should have split stakes – 1 point each – on the selection and the winner. As commented in write up I wouldnt be surprised if he won- and i suppose when they are 8s also that always leaves you with a nagging feeling of what might have been. I am always reluctant to back non chase winners and in the end that put me off. As one of you commented the extra distance and potential slower pace would help with his jumping, and as I pointed out Bangor isnt the stiffest of tests. Not a surprise winner, just a shame we didn’t get any run for our money from the tip. Damn. Moving on.

That will be all for today. I don’t have time this morning to go through the 3m+ handicap chase at Ludlow and do it justice. A few things I need to sort in the new flat.
