No luck on Saturday. I've updated an earlier winner from EGS (apologies). Good debate on Princess Latifa. If you haven't yet read the New Yorker story, it's visceral stuff, peppered with denials from the Maktoum camp but obviously no law suit. Well done The New Yorker for having the balls to publish in such depth a grim story.
If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Just like old times on TH ,red cards flying around like confetti.
Brilliant Brighton display at Arsenal, whose so called fans were leaving in droves when the 2nd went in.
Mostawaa 3rd at 9/1
Happy Index 4.35 Ludlow won SP 13/2.
Hamilton 5.15 - Mostawaa (each way)
Quintus Arius won at 5s
NAP Everglow 4.55 Killarney (hoping my nag deigns to race today.....)
Alto alto 2.45P.
There may be those who don't enjoy a French Group 1 where they jog along for 1200M before a 400M sprint to the finish, but I do.
Isaac Shelby in the 14:50 at Longchamp.
The form of both French Guineas seems littered with soft and heavy races and ATR say todays going is good. Of the lads I quite like Valimi and the lasses Quickstep and 22s looks a sporting bet. I'd like to support a horse from over here but I just can't get enthused.
Nap Ham Quintus Arius
despite the notes I thought a 4lb rise for being beaten was a bit harsh, half that would have been plenty then if he won next time hike him up.
Don't Look Back 18:45 Ham Nap.....being backed..so now nap rather than EW
Mister Camacho - 18.15 Hamilton
Happy Index Ludlow is the nap.
Gary Moore has a strong hand as they say in the Plumpton 15.15 - im going to plump for Tara Iti as the nap. its a fair betting heat hopefully Pebbles will find the winner and a few more on his day out today.
Off to Plumpton today but as I seem to have offended the betting gods recently I’m not going with much optimism for winners. That said, the forecast looks decent so hoping for a good day out. Gerard Mentor in the 15.35 at Ludlow is today’s (tentative) selection.
O'Toole. Killarney 4.55.
I felt like the Guy who stands at the Bar asking for 2 pints of Lager and a packet of crisps, please, ad nauseam.
ParisLongchamp is the big meeting but Ballydoyle are not running Pacemakers and if French G1s with no pace is your thing with 6 sprinting across the line together count me out.
I am coming back to Killarney with a boring bet with Morning Soldier in the 13.55. Probably 6/4.
Paul Townend and Willie Mullins had a nice day out across the Pond and are jet lagged but they are all on my Coupon.
