Four Monday winners and three on Tuesday - well done, all. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Elsals won at 4/1.
Otto oyl won 15/8.
Cosmos Raj in the 15:38 at Yarmouth
19.20 Hamilton - Clansman
Two shorties today with neither going either way in the market. I'm hoping Pride of America can overcome a harsh rise in the weights as he fairly bolted in last time and just for the slightly longer odds
Nap Haydock 1530 Queen Aminatu
Almost every race at Hamilton today, is sponsored by themselves!!
Westmorian 7.50 H
Amongst the dross today, interesting to see Milton Harris' new £3,500 purchase in 2.10 at Fontwell - Dell Oro, being backed it seems.
Corndavon Lad 18:50 Ham EW Nap..... Corndavon Lad 3rd 4 9-11 10/3
T: R A FaheyJ: P Hanagan Held up in rear, pushed along over 3f out, kept on well inside final furlong, not reach leaders op 9/2...
This is the result from 12 months ago, Sporting Life...... today same CD, class, draw, going is almost the same and carries less weight...so can someone please explain why it's a 40/1 shot today..
3.38 Yarmouth - Urban Violet
Everyone likes Tarzan |( tho i suspect elements of the books haven't aged well - i just remember him from the old films) - he renounced an inherited honour, was very friendly with animals and seemed on constant first name terms with his Partner.
With that in mind GreyStoke is todays nap in the fontwell 14.45.
Elsals - 15.30 Haydock
Queen aminatu nap (haydock, 15:30)
Company Minx 4.48 Yarmouth is the nap.Well done yesterdays winners.
Thunder Kiss 19.10 Cork.
I cannot be attending my local Racecourse today as work beckons.
Anyway it is quicker to fly from Cork City and back to a Chelmsford meeting and cheaper too.
The Earl of Derby probably didn't use any patent laws and if he did they must have long expired.
The 19.40 at Mallow is called the "Cork" "Derby". It is an extended H'Cap for 4 yos plus.
When Jonathan finally realises his goal to set up an Alligator Racing Track in Florida my tip is the call the Blue Riband event the Derby.
It helps if you don't to have check age or gender for Racing Alligators as wimpy Vets will demand premium.
Just assume they are 3 yo Alligators and Females are also permitted.
The Munster Oaks is possibly the joint second most prestigious Race (Hilly Way number one) at my local Course.
For some reason every entry today seems to have Kiss in all their Titles.
My nap is in the 17.40. called the Mallow Maiden which at least has the manners to identifiy itself as to the fact that the Racecourse is out in the sticks.
De Valera. Don't get me going on Politics but I could see straight away he was bred and probably named in France as I couldn't see an Irish person coming up with that name (He is buried in Glasnevin Cemetery and the last time I looked there was no flower on his grave whereas the grave of Collins is festooned less than 6 yards away).
He was also called the Long Fellow like Lester and that might be an omen.
Otto oyl 1.18Y.
