  1. Write up and photos from last Friday
    Newmarket 13th July review
    Duchess Of Cambridge 6f Group 2 Fillies
    Photo file:
    1. Pretty Polyanna – well proportioned, athletic, very fit. Just medium size and I think her superiority was exaggerated by the scrimmaging behind but still a deserved win. 94
    2. Angel’s Hideaway – Heavy bodied lower medium strong filly. 87
    3. Chaleur – 80
    4. Gossamer Wings – Very fit, bit lacking in chest depth. Can’t see this one turning into a Clemmie or Roly Poly. 80
    5. La Pelosa – Strongly made powerful filly. Chance gone when hampered. 88
    6. Main Edition – Also mullered by scrimmaging. 85
    7. Come On Leicester – Very much the small one of the bunch. 78
    8. Alicia Darcy – outclassed 75

    Race changed by the withdrawal at the stalls of favourite Art Du Val. Al Hilalee did not look fit enough to win in the way he did, then again nearly everything looked as though they needed the race.
    1. Al Hilalee – big strong boy, lots more to come. 92
    2. Al Mureib – Not as hard fit as one expects from SBS. Ok medium type 84
    3. Mount Tabora – 84
    4. Machell Place – Another unready one needing run. Good looking boy 80
    5. Dombra – 75
    6. Allmankind – Another big strong lad, maybe a bit short on quality behind and not fully fit. 79
    7. Journey Of Life – Fully tuned but short on quality. 75
    8. Maqadeer – Made the mistake of supporting this one but as a Hamdan horse trained by Ed Dunlop it would have been out of character for a debut win. Just had a look of athletic quality about him. Price suggests he may not be that special but I like him a lot. Strongly made, tad low slung but just looked as though he could run fast one day. 82
    9. Nayef Road – Lightly made, looked a sub standard Johnston runner. 74
    10. Tru Grit – 70
    11. Sameem – Very green and stupid, not fully tuned but good athletic look. 78
    12. Kuwait Currency – 74

  3. Mainly stating the obvious here and hoping I have picked the right Haggas runner.
    Lingfield Wed July 18th 2 Divisions of 6f AW Fillies Novice
    Div 1 Ratings
    1. I Am Magical, Seductive
    2. Thoughtfully
    3. Capla Rock, Ajrar, Heidiava, Nervous Nerys
    1pt win Thoughtfully
    With Thoughtfully having finished in front of No Way Jose who I rated 86 I do not like the idea of taking her on. I Am Magical showed little for a Hugo Palmer debut at Doncaster. William Haggas has a 25% strike rate here with 2yos and with James Doyle up on Seductive from stall 4 to Thoughtfully’s 9 looks the most likely to cause an upset. No bet.
    Div 2 Ratings
    1. Isaan Queen, Swiss Air, Take Fright
    2. Chonburi, Parisean Artiste
    3. Roxy Art, Star At Midnight
    1pt win Swiss Air
    Isaan Queen is on debut for Archie Watson who is 27% with 2yos on the AW and is currently favourite. Swiss Air ran promisingly on debut behind Pretty Polyanna without looking to have too much asked of her. Take Fright lost all chance at the gate on debut but ran promisingly.

  4. One more Golf tip – Top 20 finish, Sergio Garcia, 13/8. He achieves this most years at The Open and so the 13/8 seems value. Good luck.

  5. Weakest event qualifiers:-
    140 Indian Plains
    150 Stipulate
    200 Deia Glory
    230 Mishaal
    330 Lucky Beggar
    350 Al Co
    410 Dubai Landmark
    420 Workbench
    500 Buyer Beware
    520 Athassel
    745 Deeds Not Words
    835 Modrano
    850 Revived

      1. Aaron, it’s identifying a horse facing weaker opposition (and not being a no hoper).
        If you have any ideas about suitable candidates, short cuts or ways to eliminate horses from the shortlist then I’d like to hear them.

    1. Results: 2nd 5/2; L; W10/11: L; L; L; L; 2nd 8/1; W5/2;L; W7/2; 2nd 20/1; W3/1
      Well, that was better turning a profit for win only staking and if those seconds had won it would have clear many of the earlier losses.
      Can’t say that I did anything different, so I’m struggling to refine the concept.
