Not a bad day on the blog on Dante Day, shame they were mostly placed horses. 5 out of 8 placed though isn’t bad at all. The question is of course – Did we see the Derby winner today in Bonfire? I don’t think so.
On to Friday, here are my best three, plus all the York races. Be lucky everyone!
LAWN JAMIL 1450 NEWMARKET – (nap) (unplaced) won well last time out last season at Redcar, has been gelded and the runner up of that race has since boosted the form.
QARAABA 1555 NEWMARKET – (nb) (2nd – 5-1) has ran a couple of crackers this year, including a battling performnace at Doncaster last time. Up 7lbs for that, but that may not be enough!
SLEEPING CITY 1755 AINTREE – (treble) (unplaced) runner up to Darlan when running first time out this year and then fell last time. Lightly raced, must have a sniff! EACH WAY BET
Here are York
CEILING KITTY 1335 e/w (WON – 20-1)
SADEEK’S SONG 1400 e/w (unplaced)
ARCTIC COSMOS 1430 (unplaced)

DREAMING OF RUBIES 1535 e/w (3rd – 12-1)
