Saturday racing is on us again. I'm a little late this morning due to a stonking hangover from the staff xmas party last night. It's been an interesting week in the racing world with the Kauto Star saga. I doubt very much that Clive Smith and the Nicholls yard will be afiliated anymore, sounds like a right tug of war and a bit petty to be honest.
Anyway on to my selections for today :
Cristal Bonus 1430 Cheltenham (nap) (PU – inj) is a very good horse and even more so on heavy ground. Really fancy him to take another big race for Nicholls and Walsh. He is a progressive horse and I don't think Walk On will stay up the hill.
According to Trev 1355 Cheltenham – (unplaced)Coneygree is a decent horse and is feared the most, but I know this fella will stay all day and in this ground he will have to.
Zarkandar 1505 Cheltenham (nb) -(won 6-5) receiving 4lb from the other main rivals and a previous run when he was impressive at Wincanton should see him prevail. I am getting more and more impressed with him each time I see him run.
Garynella 1320 Cheltenham – (3rd 11-4) is a new recruit to the Pipe yard and looks a decent prospect on paper. Hoping he's better than these and will start his career over here with a victory.
I also like the look of So Fine 1300 Doncaster (e/w),(unplaced) Divers 1410 Doncaster, (unplaced) Counsel 1445 Doncaster (e/w) (unplaced) and an old favourite of mine who has bags of ability and could take his race at a big price Door Boy 1520 Doncaster (treble).(unplaced)
Good luck if you're having a bet and remember these are my selections, you don't have to follow them. If you are having a flutter, please bet within your means.
