Only irish bred in usa tday ginger queen 23.18 turf pdse.
Migg as well back the flying ginger in 6.30 south.
MEHMAS does it again mhemo.
Am never confident just hunches.
Paddy Brennan had his hands full on Hidden Beauty at Donny (1.15). It's well worth watching him throughout the race. It wasn't pretty but he did well to keep the partnership intact at times - and that was on the flat! Great horsemanship.
Bold Endeavour was good there. He surely has more improvement in him as chasing is his game. The pity of this story is that the owner has felt it necessary to take him away from Laura Morgan after she bought him from the PTP arena and trained him to win his first three races. Laura is such a good trainer and on a steep upward trajectory, but she could do with a marquee horse like this one. And does Nicky Henderson really need another one?
Rae Guest's skill in the training of fillies is well documented, and his 4yo in the Doncaster bumper is an intriguing runner, a rare NH entry for the yard. (Guest has had just one runner in bumpers before, which won.) The daughter of Nathaniel will be well prepared for her debut and receives 20lbs from the favourite Willmount, an expensive recruit from Irish points by Neil Mulholland. The stable has been ice-cold in recent weeks, but has just had a welcome winner in the maiden hurdle. Willmount is easy to back and I fancy the Guest filly here.
I was going to do something in the 3.15 at Exeter but with at least 3 other people already picking something else in that race I'll go for:
Sporting Mike 3.00D nap
Nap. Raddon Top. Exeter 3.15.
Equus Dreamer in the 15:15 at Exeter
Tapley e.w. - 13.15 Doncaster
Mack the Man Exeter 15.45 today is nap - Lord Nicky has one out - Bold endeavour - at Donny i think he will be disappointed to see lose but its short and comes with risks so worth watching if not betting.
Couple I fancy today, The Imposter and Zealot are both on a roll and we all know these will come to an end. 365 are reckoning that will happen today. The former ran away from a big field at Wetherby when looking like he could be swamped coming around the bottom bend and the latter was away poorly under Buick last time so perhaps both have another in them.
Nap 1315 Kellahen
the caveat being he likes winter ground and Donny is coming up good on ATR. I don't understand the fav as he was poor last time and has had a wind op and is from a stable in form but is worth taking on, in my opinion.
Global Agreement 15:45 Exe Nap
Imperial storm 1.00E.
Premiumaccess 3.15 Exeter. e/w
Storminhome - 12.45 Doncaster
Flutiste 2.10 Exeter is the nap,well done yesterdays winners.
7.00 Southwell – Spirit Of Nguru
Somehow it doesn’t sit right selecting AW runners in the middle of the NH season. However, I’ve been on an atrocious run of late over jumps.
Somehow I'm not surprised that Greg Wood of the Guardian has taken a distinctly wimpish stance in reporting Saleh al-Homaizi's non-payment of his £20m spending spree last autumn. You have to scroll well down the article to read the name of the "mystery buyer", although he is pictured leading the Derby winner Authorized at Epsom. The Guardian is very much hiding behind the fearless Racing Post's skirts. One wonders whether, if this story had fallen into Greg's hands as an exclusive, he would have gone all out as the Post did.
They were 3 nice winners yesterday in a month in which we are living on scraps.
I was actually going to do an e.w. double of Envious Editor and Economic Editor yesterday but I didn't and missed out.
My nap today is an early kick-off in the 12.15. Doncaster.
The Composeur. e.w. as it is supposed to start around 18/1.
He is sired by my favourite Stallion called 'Unknown Sire' who sure gets around.
