It is frustrating when a horse you have backed un-ships early – I don’t like the not knowing and I would rather they run their race and fade into 4th or something – at least you then know you called it wrong. But, fences are there to be jumped and Royal Native decided to miss one out. At least the Stats/Angle EW stab gave any backers a run for their money drifting from 12s>33s- for a brief moment it looked very promising, turning for home… he desperately wanted the lead and it took him a circuit, and going 4 wide, to get it- he could be interested in a race with less pace pressure, and may have a good chance of making all, albeit he is clearly tricky and needs plenty of riding. A ‘McCoy’ horse if ever you saw one.
none, I don’t fancy attacking the C5 chase at Hexham.
6.45 Kempton – Inniscastle Lad (14/1<) (2 seconds so far,one of them the moral winner)
2.35 Ling – Mr Bossy Boots 3rd 7/1
December Trainer Track Combos
3.05 Ling – Heads You Win – UP 40/1
STATS/ANGLES OF INTEREST
Not much else of interest today for me. I have looked in the winter All-Weather TTP guide and there are a couple of qualifiers as follows for Lingfield (I haven’t looked at Kempton)…
12.05 Ling – My Fantasea UP
3.35 Ling – Swot 2nd 14/1>9/2
That will be all for today.
