No Friday winners that I can see. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.Good luck todayJoe
Very late to the party today as I’m just home from my second day at Goodwood this week. I had a good time there on Wednesday and managed to back a few winners. Today was a bit last minute when a friend won a ballot for tickets. I’ll just say it wasn’t a patch on Wednesday from a personal punting perspective! If only I’d looked at this forum earlier I might not have talked myself out of backing Commanche Falls and Trawlerman. Well done to David, Alan and Jake for keeping the faith.
The final kick in the nuts was hearing that Charlton had conceded a 96th minute equaliser!
Not many races left today so I’m going for broke with Chinese Spirit in the 21.00 at Hamilton.
Trawlerman 2.10 Goodwood won SP 6/1.
Comanche falls at 25s ew makes my month look better but been a struggle.
Commanche Falls EW Nap Wins 25/1
@tuforu4 Mrs Mee has had a double up at Galway already (that's three winners this week). The great lady's favourite meeting?
Do you remember when "trained by Gosden, ridden by Dettori" was said to be a thing of the past? Didn't they have a public row and then Dettori was sacked? My memory isn't great these days but . . . Anyway, that filly Commissioning looked very smart at Newmarket just now.

Story from another forum...talk about a hard luck story..
I got every reason to hate the Stewards cup. Well not really.. I bought a filly Storm Runner via Tony Charlton through Gosden's travelling head lad Andrew "Sammy Stringer" for 5k.
We got her cheap because she never made her reserve at the sales and the seller didn't wan't to take her back to Ireland and pay more costs till he could sell her again.
I sold half to my partner Ronnie and we ran her in his name as our previous horse was in my name. First time up she was beaten in a photo by Donavan Rose trained by Jack Berry.
We thought we had won a watch as she wasn't anywhere near 100% but alas she decided she liked the look of fire and ran straight into a pile of wood the builder was burning in the yard,.
She became quite scatty but eventually we got her mind right and Pat Eddery rode her at Haydock and told us that if we dropped her in class she would win.
So we went the whole hog and dropped her into Selling Class and she pizzed up. Tony called me and said she is in tomorrow again can I run her again?
I couldn't go racing because of business so I just said ok. Went into the local bookes and low and behold she had won.
What I didn't know because I was so busy to look is it was another seller.
Aldeera Bloodstock went all out and broke the track record for the most paid for a selling race winner at about 14K
not the done thing is it?
As we weren't there Tony had no choice but let her go.
She went on to repeat the dose in H'caps winning 2 in 2 days then they put her in the Steward Cup.
She was 50/1 and I thought they were crazy but last going into the final furlong she flew home and finished 5th beaten about 3 lengths by memory.
What came next was like being poked in the eye with a shrap stick. They sold her to a stud in Abu Dhabi for 92,000 pounds Such is life.
Commanche Falls.. EW Nap 15:20Good
I think the winning competition was over after week one.
Today, Jakebuckfast is strolling on his Bike along the Champs-Elysee.
I have tried a few 66/1 shots in the last 10 days but they were either NRs or beaten by a sh out of Place Money.
It will all even out is what I tell to myself.
My ambition for today is not to finish stone last.
I am interested in the 14.30. at Galway where a Horse called Fils D'oudaries (my translation is "ordinary son" and Quai cannot correct me as he has forgotten his French after a week back in ol' Blighty).
I can see a monster achievement for Ballydoyle today at Galway and am building a long coupon.
Vincent liked to win the Birdcatcher at Naas.
APOB occasionally enjoys them too and Congo River in the 16.15. at Galway is my nap to avoid last place.
Just backed 4 in the Stewards Cup. Of those I think
