Two Thursday winners and one from Wednesday - well done.If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Zulu Tracker won at 7 to 4. That was its hat trick and it MAY have another race in it - wouldn't want to see it out too soon tho.
Infinitive in the 15:18 at Wolverhampton. Hoping Cieren Fallon can get the splits right.
19.58 Newmarket - Chasing Aphrodite
Move away from the wooden spoon Jake, it’s mine!
(And to demonstrate why) Today’s selection is Smeaton’s Light in the 18.07 at Thirsk.
The Vinnie Roe at Leopardstown yesterday was probably - as David pointed out - the highest class race in the British Isles all day. But the profile of the race perhaps illustrates the extent to which flat racing, in Ireland at least, is a closed shop run by the biggest owners and their coterie of trainers. Five runners wet to post: two owned by Coolmore and Coolmore/Westerberg, one by Lloyd Williams, one by the Bolgers and one by the Aga Khan. Three were trained by Aidan O'Brien and his two sons. Oh and there was a non runner, trained by an O'Brien and co-owned by Coolmore/Westerberg and Lloyd Williams.
All very cosy.
Power Of Darkness 7.58 Newmarket is todays nap,well done yesterdays winners.I must be quite short odds for the wooden spoon this month.
Zulu Tracker Newbury 2,35 is todays swing
Maylandsea 3.10 Newb nap for today.
Not going to be a big price but one of the main dangers Miami Girl is out. Top 3 in betting all by Havana Grey.
Tossed a mental coin and it came down tails for Absolutely Flawless at Newbury and heads for
Nap Thirsk 1915 Farhhfromforgotten
which I was drawn to after trying to suss the race out as my original nudge was for Novaportion who seems a bit of a character. First go he ran a cracker after a bewildering start, next time was rubbish when expected to improve and has had his nuts off as a consequence. So much so young.
Looking ahead to tomorrow I was eyeing up the Great St Wilfred. Only 15 runners, no obvious consolation race either but there is the amusingly (to me ) titled last and I'd like to wish the Dotty Duchess a happy 70th! I'm sure she'll have a great day.
Showing my ignorance can anyone enlighten me as to why Blackrod has gone to Bethel's from Dods? Seems odd to me from under my toadstool, unless....
Point King won last night at 8 to 11
The weird Coolmore Colours on Perotan is of interest in the Give Thanks G3 at Mallow.
