Not much look yesterday! Only MONTIRIDGE winning and a place for CAPE PERON. On to an even more difficult Saturday fixture with some cracking handicaps. I really love this big fields and trying to solve the problem, hopefully have picked a few today. Good luck if you're having a bet.
TROJAN ROCKET 1715 NEWMARKET (nap) – (unplaced) this boy needs to step up again but judging on his last run behind Baby Strange at Newcastle he can do. He was unlucky that day as didn't get the gap when needed. Mlikael Barzalona has a cracking record on him and I think he has a great chance today.
VALBCHEK 1720 DONCASTER (nb) – (2nd – 8-1) he was very smart last term at times and has some solid form to bring to the table. He is back from a long break but they have been waiting for the ground to be easier. Massive chance today.
BABY STRANGE 1405 GOODWOOD (treble) – (unplaced) has been raised 6lbs for his success at Newcastle. However, he is one to follow when in form and he has a cracking record in this, taking it in 2008 and he flew home at the finish last year, really good each way chance.
BLAINE 1550 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) is thrown in to his first handicap and is a huge price. He won the Gimcrack at York in a stella start to his career, he has since been disappointing, but class is class and he could be better than these, and interestingly is entered in another Group 1 later on. Great each way value too. I've fought with my heartstrings and decided to leave WHOZTHECAT alone in this. He's ran incredibly well this year but it's maye asking too much for him towin this from the front under a penalty. I kind of hope I'm wrong though!
JUST THE JUDGE 1515 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) she ran really well I thought from a difficult stall at the Royal meeting and she should relish this step up in trip. I think she will reverse the form with Sky Lantern today, whom I'm not sure will stay.
ELIDOR 1440 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) has been raised 5lbs since his last victory and the form of that race has been franked by CAP O'RUSHES and Bold Sniper since, great chance to take this too.
LANCELOT DU LAC 1420 NEWMARKET – (unplaced) this is an easier race than he's been running well in and he looked a smart proposition when winning first time out. The yard is bang in form and he should win this.
NO POPPY 1615 THIRSK – (unplaced) quickly becoming a cliff horse, but she has been well tried this year and I firmly believe she's a decent horse. She's even better with a bit of give and I'm hoping the thunderstorms and showers have got into the ground for her!
