Up and running for the month with 2 winners - well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Jonathan Sweeney is a very astute trainer (he wouldn't be entrusted with McManus horses were that not the case). Showurappreciation just won the maiden hurdle, the fourth winner in the last five runs for the Sweeney yard. Even more impressive, that is one winner per month since February. And he has the chance of a double tonight with Roseys Hollow in the 7.18. She has some sound placed form in beginners chases in the book. At the very least she should bustle up the Mullins favourite Hercule Du Seuil, and is a tasty 11/8 in the without the fav market.
Joe, Can't Stop Smiling won at 17/2 !!!
Wisper wins at 12/1 (I stipulated each way😣!)
Here we are in May, a day of glorious spring sunshine. We have five UK meetings on a Tuesday - fine. But do we need two meetings on the Tapeta? Do we need 14 races on the all weather at this time of year, 13 of which are class 5 or 6 (8 at class 6)? It's betting shop fodder, racing's equivalent of BAGS. The bookies don't realise that this sort of offering is the thing that most turns punters off racing. It's the Law of Unintended Consequences.
Sad sacks like me must wait till a quarter to five to look at a maiden hurdle.
