3.40 – Another Mattie (hncp hurdle) 3rd 25/1>16/1

4.10 – Halcyon Days (hncp chase) 3rd 11/4>9/2


3.Any ‘Notes’ (subjective views mainly, on some of the qualifiers)

Well, there are no non-ratings pointers horses above so not much to say. It would be rather good fun if Another Mattie could win at 25s or so, albeit I am not sure why he should suddenly improve, albeit does drop in trip, but looks a stayer. No headgear change,albeit 3rd run of the season and you never know. Anyway, I will be on given he is Geegeez speed top rated. I won’t be over thinking those and this team have already provided us with a top rated 20/1 winner in the RPs, at the last meeting I think. Fingers crossed. Whisky Chaser has every chance of making all to my eye, hopefully cheekpieces may help- albeit of some interest Will Kennedy heads to Newcastle maybe. Not as a neg for our chances, but may be a positive for McCains at Newcastle, as an aside (haven’t looked at their runners there). Dark And Dangerous led all the way LTO also.  Muggy treble on the three short-ish ones? Well, that may be daft, as they rarely come in! But, at least they are all in decent form.


4.Any general messages/updates etc

I will update weekly results as usual, for Tuesday’s post. We are still around 12 points up for the month maybe, the ratings pointers that is. More if your pin landed on the 25/1 winner at the weekend, or indeed the 25/1 NHF winner earlier in the month also.


KEY:(applicable across the blog) 

H1/H3 = HorseRaceBase Top Rated or Top 3 Rated (at time of posting)

G1/G3 = Geegeez Gold Speed Ratings (Dr Peter May) Top Rated or Top 3 Rated

14,30 = Geegeez Gold ‘trainer form’ indicators. 14 – 5+ runs last 14 days, 20% win sr OR 51%+ place (inc wins) sr. 30 – 10+ runs last 20 days, 20% win sr OR 51%+ place (inc wins) sr

NOTE: In the ratings pointers above, BOLD indicates a ‘double qualifier,against both ratings’ in RED is a ‘double top rated qualifier- they are 3/4 so far…) (no such qualifiers today)



That is all for today. I will discuss some Cheltenham Festival plans in tomorrow’s post/what you can expect etc.

Good luck today,

  1. Hi Josh et al, been working bad shifts and away at family “do” so missed loads!! Agree with Halcyon Days though there maybe a fly in the shape of Nomoreblackjack but I have to follow my methods so in with Halcyon Days. I was impressed with Whizzey Rascal at Ayr last week and should be able to carry 12.2 here. I’m struggling to split Maxed Out King and Casual Cavalier so a forecast is the way. Looks like all “shorties” today but that is sometimes the way!! Good luck to all and may all come back safe human and equine.
