A return this week to more normal surroundings for the blog after a weekend away in beautiful County Durham last week. My selections at the moment are in the pits of despair, trying to recollect my last big winner on the blog is like trying to remember the last time Liverpool were the champions of England! However, today brings renewed vigour and hope, and remember the jumps are on the horizon!!!!
QUICK WIT 1550 NEWMARKET (NAP) – here we go then. The nap in the Cambridgeshire and 40-1 when I’m writing this. This fella has been running in some top company this season and he has had a good few months off. He was a narrow second to GRANDEUR at Goodwood last year over 10f and had the likes of BROWN PANTHER AND DICK DOUGHTYWYLIE behind him that day. He just hasn’t been able to cut it with the big boys. He is 6lbs less in the ratings than that defeat to GRANDEUR and he also has stall 1 to bounce from which is where the quicker grounds could well be. Hughesy on board too! An interesting selection that has a great chance!
WHOZTHECAT 1535 HAYDOCK (NB) – has been poor this season but interestingly is now dropped in class and runs off 88, a mark he has previously won off. This mark is also his lowest in over 12 months. The good ground should suit and if he runs to his previous form he will have a good chance at a huge price!
TIGGY WIGGY 1510 NEWMARKET (TREBLE) – this filly has been phenomenal this year and I just can’t see her losing this and she possibly should be odds on based on her demolition of the field in the Lowther.
NAFAQA 1435 NEWMARKET – this fella come where with the best form on offer. With TOOCOOLFORSCHOOL franking the form so impressively last week you would expect more to come from my selection.
BRONZE ANGEL 1550 NEWMARKET
EXITAS 1415 MARKET RASEN
BALLINCURRIG 1450 MARKET RASEN
CONFESSIONAL 1555 RIPON
Father 12-15 Son
