Micro Monday: Charlie Longsdon

A look at Charlie Longsdon, inc a video…

Following the win of Vivas yesterday, I decided to take a look at Charlie Longsdon, prompted by one of you also! As is often the case, or will be at this time of year, I’ve looked at the chasers.

Below this angle is an in-depth video.. the first 15 minutes takes a look at this angle, plus some musings on whatever comes into my head… including a look at a few positives (tracks / jockeys) you may wish to note down. I also jump over to the Geegeez Query tool and look at ‘pace’. Unsurprisingly the front runners do particular well for Longsdon’s chasers, but hold up horses don’t do too badly either.

In the second half of the video I just de-construct the angle and flick through various other factors – more a look into how I think about research with HRB for such angles, and it may be interesting to a point for those of you who like such things!

So, first up, i’ll crack on with the micro angle… I’ll be adding Charlie into the ‘Autumn Trainers’ section, given the focus below, joining Emma Lavelle and Nigel Twiston-Davies.

  1. Thanks for that Josh, my micro was a lot more vague than yours, probably down to me either not maintaining it or not finishing it by the looks of it! I have plenty of those and never enough time!

    1. ha, no worries… well I like to be focused these days on the chasers – with some more work I could probably find an all year round angle but that one will do for now. Nothing wrong with vague angles, provided there’s not ‘qualifier overload’ if you have plenty of them!
