This will be my last blog until Monday as I’m off to Stratford for the weekend and Warwick races on Saturday night. The crappy weather has forced Warwick to abandon their flat meeting, however, it’s a dual purpose course so they’ve scheduled an all hurdle card instead! Great effort and a relief!
This ground is playing hell with everyone’s tipping and form reading yet I’ve still managed a winner in JACK DEXTER (9-2) and a second in GABRIAL (2-1) on Thursday.
So, onwards to Friday.
HITS ONLY JUDE 1845 NOTTINGHAM – (nap) (unplaced) is 4lb lower than when running a good second at Southwell on Wednesday. That is another significant drop in the weights that must give him a chance on last years form. Has won on good to soft. (3 points each way)
KINGSWINFORD 1540 CHESTER – (nb) (unplaced) won well last time and has been raised 4lbs. Has won twice here and been placed. Has also won on soft and good to soft. (2 points each way)
AWESOME PEARL 1345 LINGFIELD – (treble) (unplaced) won well last year on the AW over 7f. Should appreciate this step up in trip and the trainer as always has to be feared!! (2 points each way)
STAKE = 14 points
RETURNS = 0 points
BANK = – 8.9 points
