  1. Morning all, off to see my leg in Dragoon Guard struggle around Plumpton in the mud. Lto was a delightful surprise after his numerous breathing ops and treatment for ulcers. He was unlucky to get beaten, not stopping but just getting caught on the line by a hold up after being out in front on his own for the last 3 hurdles.

    Today is Cl4 rather than Cl5 so at least he does not have to lug 12.2, he performed well at Worcester in a Cl4 last June but the going today is an unknown. Jeremy, his sire has an ok strike rate on heavy of 14% and lto it was soft but holding so we can travel hopefully.

    If he has truly found his form and is well he should be competitive for a place. The problem being that there are a couple of opponents with very good heavy stats, Sea Wall and Rathealy. The favourite Shimba Hills has only ever run on heavy once in a Cl4 at Newbury where he finished 3rd btn 11L.

    I think the conclusion has to be that it is wide open. Heavy form is the most important so I would think that Sea Wall is the biggest danger to us if we act on heavy.

  2. I do not punt on a Sunday and was out all day and so missed the Gary Moore treble!

    We all seem to be aware that racing is not good today.

    I would only put up Gabrial The Thug, 2.20 Wol, but it is not much of a price.

    1. I’ve had trouble posting on IE and via my phone but Firefox seems to work although it did warn my about the site being insecure before letting me post. Anyway its interesting that Moore seems to have had a couple of high profile winners on horses he has just picked up from another yard in the past week so perhaps there is an angle to follow there.

      I’ve had an absolutely horrible weekend of punting although at least I managed to finish 18th in the poker at Aspers for £900 to wipe out the racing losses.

      One that caught my eye today was Emjayem in the 14:55 at Wolves. First start for the new stable and gets cheek pieces. He is 1/2 in class 5 AW races worth less than £3.5k with the win coming at the track and is 3lbs lower than his last win. I think its eye-catching that Adam Kirby has been booked given he has only ever ridden twice for the trainer resulting in a 1st and 2nd. Trainer had a horse place recently so they are running ok. 11s looked big.
