Late Arrival 18:30 Ponte EW Nap
Some people have a generalised sense of the malaise in British racing yet cannot see beyond these shores to learn how things could be done so much better. Here's a small case in point.
Lady Rockstar - ex Haggas but still running for Steve Parkin, founder of Clipper Logistics - is making hay in the United States. She ran off a rating of 110 at Belmont last night, after being a mid-70s handicapper on the AW here. Parkin has sold his share in Clipper Logistics now so runs them under his own name in the States, though not yet in the UK so far as I can see. Not a particularly nice man so I hear, but a shrewd businessman. The mare has won $100k in two races now, having earned the princely sum of 3k in a Wolves maiden.
With many horses being sold to race not only in the States but the Middle East, Hong Kong and Australia, it is inevitable that the quality of stock running in Britain will decline when breeders can get good money from overseas buyers. And UK-based owners are seeing the financial sense in looking to Europe in their race planning to take advantage of the breeders premiums, subsidised travel costs and other incentives offered by overseas jurisdictions. We need to wake up and shake up before we become a sad backwater in the global racing scene.
On a poor nap run - will try to arrest that with the short priced Simply Sondheim - Lingfield 1.53
Liverpool Knight - 19.15 Windsor
17.00 Pontefract - King Francis

Overtougeorge nap (16:30)
Brianna rose 2.45S.
Corinthia Knight 6.30 Pontefract is the nap.Well done yesterday el gran senor,lucky you in Florence enjoy.
Plunkett in the same race, forgot to
I was looking at the 14.20 at Gowran Park and the first 2 names on the Racecard are called Laugh A Minute and Laughifuwant.
How the hell can anyone decide which of those 2 Horses to back and I have undergone expensive Therapy?
I am currently in Florence and have a booking for Palazzo Medici today and I should nap Riccardi Medici in the 16.05 at Gowran but I don't know about you but he is one of my least favourite Medicis. I always liked Cosimo Medici so will give that a miss.
My nap has to be Talbot in the 16.40 at Gowran.
There is a Talbot street on many Towns in Ireland and one just off the main thouraghfare in Dublin.
Matt Talbot was a legend in his lifetime who self flaggeled as a Penitent on the streets of Dublin and when he died early in life on those streets he was wrapped in chains and had bodily evidence of self mortification.
For some reason he has never been canonised and yet Plunkett has.
On a School trip I once had to stare at the pickled head of Oliver Plunkett in Drogheda Cathedral just before his canonisation for a full hour.
Elegant Erin 19.30 Ponty.
