Here we are again another Saturday and another great set of cards. The last big flat meeting today will crown Hughsie as champ, and why not, the man is class. An eventful week saw Frankel show us all what a superstar he is, and I'm still shocked that he isn't officially the best rated horse ever. Then we had the Channel Four reshuffle, personally I'm glad to see the back of Big Mac and Tommo. Floundering fools in my opinion. It's a shame John Francome opted out as I think he talks sense. However, lets see how it pans out before we make judgements. Had a decent winner or two in the week too, plucked CARAMELITA out midweek and I am sat at the top of the TEAMNAPS group on @Tweet_Naps which is great. Hopefully I can hold on until the end of the month.
On to today's selections – hope we get a winner or two.
MARUFO 1425 AINTREE (nap) – (WON 7-2) won a veterans chase well at Newbury a couple of outings ago and will stay the trip no problem. Can see him up with the pace and then bursting clear over the last!
NACARAT 1530 AINTREE (nb) – I can't believe this one is being overlooked by everyone. He stays 3m easily and jumps for fun from the front, I can see him bouncing away and no-one getting to him. Has strong Aintree record too!
LITTLE ROCKY 1545 NEWBURY (treble) – loves this testing ground and is in form with two wins out of the last three runs. Should run well again.
Also having a little stab on the Fallon magic with three rides that I reckon he has great chances on at Donny. All each way selections though.
FULGUR 1400 DONCASTER (3rd 8-1)
PONTY ACCLAIM 1430 DONCASTER (unplaced)
STEELER 1505 DONCASTER
And finally two at Newbury TAWHID 1415 (WON – 9-2) and NOBLE MISSION 1445. Hope there's a few winners here and also a little pointer towards two at Chepstow one of Paul Nicholls' SALUBRIOUS and one of my old favs BACK BOB BACK
