6.10 FL- Get Rhythm
A Perrett All-Weather
3.30 Chelm – Zzoro (12/1<)
The Royal Hunt Cup winner broke a few of my stats that i focused on, which happens more often than not on the flat it seems. Pondering required.
Both Priestley brothers and Dr Nick Hardman did find the winner at 28/1. Well done them. Fine judges in these races. I should have just followed those in but not much damage done financially. Still, none of mine ran very well which is always frustrating.
There are two 3YO Only handicaps on Day 3 that I will leave well alone. But I will try and post something up of use.
From my Members’ Post…

9.10 FL – Sioux Chieftain– 1 point win – 7/1 (general)
There seems to be some money around for this one which is never a bad sign with this yard. We shall see if it is sustained. He ticks a few boxes for me. Firstly he is unexposed over hurdles, 1/3,2 places. In theory there should be more to come at some point, this being his third handicap hurdle. It is also his third run after a lengthy absence and it could be that he is about to come right. It looks like they have been patient with him. His last run showed some promise and was 57 days after his initial return having been off for a year. He ran well to a point there and the front three were clear of the rest- albeit the front two way ahead of him. He gets a tongue tie fitted here for the first time which may help with any finishing effort and in any case that fits the ‘doing something different’ category and is a possible reason for improvement – as is the fact he may be in peak condition now. He has come down 6lbs in the last two runs and Charlie’s 7lbs will help further, esp taking some of the 12st off. And finally, Newland is in form. 3/17,10 places the last 30 days, 0/6,3 places the last 14 days. I am taking on Little Pop who may well win here but he reverts to hurdling having been chasing for a few runs which is never easy. And at the odds I prefer to give SC a chance- he has more to come, at some point.
And something for Royal Ascot.. my micro system qualifiers from a report produced for Members/Betting Insiders Club. These are very much a starting point but having had a flick through I hope one or two may go close…
