Thanks to Jake and Robiecheaux for Good Brithday - - saved me from my selections! And I almost did Shaara, a good call from Gforce. Congrats to all today's winners.
Midgetonamission 3rd EW Nap ... 18/1
Good Birthday 3.55 Yarmouth won 10/1 SP.
Shaara won 7/2
Very frustrating Good birthday finally delivers at 10/1. Hence the ew bit.
Bayside boy won 4/6.
NAP The Dara Man, 3.10 Sligo.
Ville de Grace. 15.20. Yarmouth.
On another forum Msay will be hiding his head behind the sofa.
Was looking forward to today, a Varian @Bev (see Rob below), XJ Rascal and a near certainty to get 40% return on capital. OK I've had a small treble with Local Dynasty to return a bit over 5s but that's still short as Frankie could put a spike in it. Longer is
Nap Yar 1520 Shaara
A further thought about the Irish St Leger, following the interesting comments from @el gran senor and @Dilton yesterday. Hamish ran a huge race over his optimum trip. He is a class horse over 14f but just doesn't get 2m as shown last October at Ascot. So the number of targets he can be aimed at each season is limited, especially as he needs soft ground. I have always thought he would have made a top staying hurdler but that ain't gong to happen (even though W. Haggas's dad used to be married to the owner of the great Silver Buck)!
Fun fact: Silver Buck was discovered in Irish point to points in 1977 by a certain Barney Curley and sold on to Michael Dickinson - on condition Barney would be given the nod when he was ready to win over hurdles. He was entered in an amateur riders' novice hurdle at Catterick and opened at 12/1. Barney had shedloads of cash on, forcing the price in to 5/1, only for Silver Buck - a highly strung type of horse - to nearly run out at he last. Tom Tate was alive to his quirks and managed to get him over safely and the gamble was landed. That was the lowly start of a great career.
Tricky today ( as usual). Latino Fling in the Kelso 4.15 gets nod for nap
Midgetonamission 17:10 Sand EW Nap
Very well handicapped Good birthday is an ew nap. Yarmouth 3.55
Kemerton EW 4.40 Sandown - risky nap, based on a decent 4th last time, 2 have improved a lot and won again, the second has been second again...
Ae Fond Kiss in 4.10 also of interest, but NRs reducing EW places and shrinking odds.
If Not For Dylan - 17.45 Kelso
3.35 Sandown - Escobar
Good Birthday 3.55 Yarmouth is the nap,well done RobJ with your winner.
Bayside boy 3 35S.
Broadspear nap (bev 16:35)
