A decent enough day yesterday across the blog with a 7/1 winner for ‘bet of the day’ and and 18/1 winner from my Punchestown notes,as well as a decent second at 25s.
Thursday looks a bit quieter on here…

Alan King (16/1<)
5.25 Chelm – Mccools Gold
Nothing much else today, I have repeated some notes below for Beverley- I had a quick flick through the card on request from a member who is going to the track. Be warned- my record when I have a ‘quick glance’ is questionable but we shall see how some of these go…
1.40- Lucky Beggar (fit,well drawn,front runs/on pace,could get rail) and Lydia’s Place (again can be up there but maybe could have run better LTO) look the most interesting to me. Cue another one from TTP bolting up! Spirit of Wedza is high drawn and yet to prove 5f is what he wants,but a fair bit of pace on and if there is a collapse maybe something just off it swoops past)
2.10- looks like the Johnston horse is the one to beat- fit, has experience, and Fanning will try and make all- short price- could do some muggy forecasts maybe- and given how Fahey’s 2yos are going,put his in it- jockey bookings suggest shazzab is the one- he may even win.
2.45 – Arc Royal- he stool out to me with my 60 second glance- bit of experience, fit,appreciate step up in trip and they may try and make all with him- Johnton’s may be up there but may need the run and he doesn’t have to lead- should give backers a run for their money I think.
3.15 – Dapper Man 33s- an at the track fun EW punt – I just liked the pace angle as I suspect they may try and make all again- he faded over 8f LTO- drop to 7f here and has now had a run. It could be he just isn’t very good but could get the heart racing until about 1f out, then who knows! They will probably hold him up now.
Suppose Geophony looks of interest also of those near the top end – had a run and drops in trip, Fanning may try and be handy with him also, given drop back. A race full of unexposed 3 year olds so who knows!
3.50 – covered in TTP, of those near top end of market ‘Bit of a Querke’ looks interesting – although th e number of placed efforts may start to be a concern, maybe he doesn’t fully go through with his effort but he is fit, will run on the pace/try make all, and the yard is in form.
That is all for today.
