We have had a couple of disappointing results over the last few Saturdays from my selections after a great start! Hopefully today’s selections will come home and help to fill the diminshed coffers after Christmas emptied them.
I love Boxing Day racing and of course the pinnacle being the King George.
ROCK ON RUBY 2.35 KEMPTON (nap) (2nd)
Was really impressive last time out at Newbury and the form was franked by Raya Star winning last week. Has still got loads of improvement in him, and is not that far behind Binocular and Overturn on the ratings.
LOCH BA 1.25 KEMPTON (nb) (4th – never travelled well – disappointing!)
Won well here in October and was beaten in a good race by Trafalgar Road last month. A mistake 2 out cost him the race and I reckon he will scoot up today
BOBS WORTH 2.00 KEMPTON (treble) (3rd)
A class hurdler, who took to jumping well despite a few errors to beat Cue Card at Newbury. He’s another on the upgrade and I reckon he will just pip Grand Crus.
In the King George Ive change my mind a few times, Kauto Star was awesome at Haydock last time, but Long Run needed that race. So…….. I going for MASTER MINDED to show his class and stay 3 miles. Paul Nicholls has trained him for this race and he is only a few pounds below Long Run on the ratings anyway. He jumps cleanly and smootly and has bags of pace. I hope Im wrong and Kauto Star makes more history!
I also fancy HALLEY 1.45 Wetherby (FELL – on first circuit) and INDIAN DAUDAIE 1.40 Wincanton (4th) too.
Happy betting, good luck!
Finally, those who have read previous blogs know my wife comes out with crazy stuff every now and again. We’ve had two more crackers over the Xmas period.
1) while discussing the terrible Tsunami that hit Japan earlier this year, the programme we were watching showed Japan as it is on a map ( a series of islands!) to which my wife replied “I didnt know it was an island I thought it Japan was in China”!!! After I picked myself up after laughing so hard, she then said “Well I only thought that because they have slinty eyes too!” ~ I swear to God I nearly passed out laughing.
2) the second cracker from my wife was just this morning when my daughter asked why is today called Boxing Day, my wife’s response “because it’s when you throw all the empty boxes away from Christmas” ~ again absolutely priceless!
Enjoy “Boxing Day” and I hope the selections come good!
