Not a bad day for the blog on Monday with a winner courtesy of CHELLA THRILLER (9-2), then a decent place from TILSTAR (4-1). My selections for Tuesday take us to Ffos Las and a decent one (I think!) at Lingfield.
REGAL APPROACH 1445 FFOS LAS (nap) – (unplaced) showed signs of his old form when returning from a lay off when third at Newbury. The second in that race FAULTLESS FEELINGS ran LOOSE CHIPS close before that one's run in the Lanzarote. On his bare form as a chaser is pretty well in and I hope that will show through!
FULL OF JOY 1340 FFOS LAS (nb) – (unplaced) fell on his return but should be thereabouts again if the confidence hasn't been knocked. Is relatively unexposed and the ground should suit.
THEATRE EVENING 1310 FFOS LAS (treble) – (PU) the McCoy factor for this one. He has had a few rides for Rebecca Curtis here at Ffos Las recently, and while is stable jockey to JP, technically he's not for Jonjo, so his choice here could be a tip. I may of course be completely wrong!
Finally I liked the way that KING ARTHUR 1330 LINGFIELD (2nd 12-1) ran on his debut behind Nicholls/Walsh's IRISH SAINT. He was moving pretty well up until the point where he tipped up, ad that was two classes hgher than this!
