Daily (Adam N)
Two for today, as of 9am…
#1 – 2.30 Newbury – Present Chief – 2pts win – 11/2 (WH) 5/1 (Bet365/BV) 9/2 (others) UP -2
This progressive individual has won his last two races with any amount in hand and is confidently expected to take this rise in class in his stride. A good looking chasing type, he jumps and travels well and with stamina assured he has plenty to recommend him on ground that will hopefully be as good as forecast.
#2 – 4.00 Sedgefield – Miladygrace – 1pt EW – 15/2 (WH/BV) 7/1 (gen) (1/5, 3p, gen) UP -2
Caught the eye at Kelso last time out when unable to go with some speedier types on quick ground in the closing stages. Not knocked about by any means that day, she is unexposed compared to most in this poor contest and any improvement over this longer trip should see her in the mix

Note – I will record a short HRB video looking at the Venetia angle and maybe any other’s who do well in Nov you may wish to note down. I’ll probably put that in a ‘free to air’ post and will get that up on Thursday.
On Thursday they’ll be the usual ‘stats/trends’ post looking ahead to the weekend. The Badger Ales will be the main focus, there’ s a 2m4f hncp chase from Aintree, no idea as yet if a ‘trends’ race, a decent Vets race on Sunday from Sandown. I suspect those three may be my main focus. Before that, there’s various things to flick through below…

4. REALLY SUPER (13.02 Market Rasen)
A change of plans for our star who was heading off on her hols after Kempton, but this race became an option esp when clear the weather/ ground may be kind, and she was her usual self at home post Kempton. Anything could happen in this race- Amy has always thought she was best with 28+ days between runs but she’s fine at home and we’ve nothing to lose here, as she’ll definitely be on her hols after. Obviously the track holds no fears and this will tell us plenty – hopefully she runs her race, if she doesn’t then maybe she does need more time between runs. But she’s an adult now. She has stamina to prove although I don’t think that will be a problem, esp in a small field. She may relish it. Obviously there’s a 147 mare and a 150 Hendo mare, who won the Summer Plate a couple of years ago – Super’s time was 7 seconds quicker I think, but on better ground. If she does run her race we will learn plenty about her ability/ ceiling I think, as this looks like its been a plan for Hendo’s, and if the Richard’s mare is tuned up, she’ll be in there scrapping also. I can dream of Super’s turn of foot being too much for them up the straight, but we shall see. I can’t sit here with great confidence on any front really, she’s clearly got a bit to find with the top two, for all we haven’t seen the best of her over fences yet. She’s fit, well and there to run her best. We will see if she does and how far that gets her. Exciting. I suspect Jack will try to be aggressive if he can/Super is on form and play catch me if you can, a bit like Kempton. Twisters may ruin that idea but she may not be good enough/jump well enough to stay there. He’ll look after her if this is one trip to the well too many.
Her Kempton AW run was interesting – visually I thought she ran flat/wasn’t up for it, but the clock would suggest she was just outpaced/classed maybe, and it certainly wasn’t run to suit. I believe she ran the 3 furlongs to the finish line nearly 2 seconds quicker than when winning at Chelmsford, around 11l. I found that of mild interest and more positive than the run appeared at the time to my eyes.
The first ever horse I had shares in with White Diamond, Blessed To Empress, runs in the 7.45 Chelm – I think the double may be asking for too much, but maybe its written in the stars! (it’s not). She won’t be far away if running her race again though.
