An old favourite!
Sunday was a bit of a write off. The weather yet again was awful, and so was the tipping. I didn’t really fancy anything to be honest and shouldn’t have bothered. Anyway, lets hope the ground dries out a bit in time for the Guineas at the weekend.
SPITFIRE 1810 WINDSOR – (nap) (NR) an old favourite of mine, watched him win at Warwick on his racecourse debut and he won me a packet at 25-1 on Leger day the other year. Is not as good now, but has won fresh and on heavy ground before – got both tomorrow with the champ up. (5 point win)
LIBRETELLA 1615 KEMPTON – (nb) (unplaced) three wins last year including here. Open to possible improvement, interesting that Fallon rides him instead of Refractor, who he rode last time and is fancied. (4 point win)
THE GURU OF GLOOM 1715 KEMPTON – (unplaced) two out of three so far on AW, including a 7f victory here. Look progressive and must have a chance! (3 point win)
STAKE = 12 points
RETURNS = 5 points for NR
BANK = 50.5 points
