Not much luck yesterday with the selections, but I did think Kingsgate Native ran well on ground not ideal! I'm writing my blog today sat on a lovely caravan site just outside Matlock. The issue is the bloody weather, yep, it's been throwing it down here all morning and last night too! We had planned a big family BBQ aswell to celebrate my niece doing so well in her GCSE's. Oh well, we can't control the weather and it's seriously affected the horses at York. Below are my selections for today, good luck if you're having a flutter!
HANOVERIAN BARON 1550 YORK (nap) – (unplaced) he was due to run yesterday but sneaks in here off bottom weight. He has been running very well all year and was travelling really well at Haydock before being hampered slightly. Was doing his best work at the end and this step up in trip should suit. The claimer takes another 5lbs off and in the forecast rain-soaked ground it could prove crucial. Each way selection though.
VALBCHEK 1555 NEWMARKET (nb) – (unplaced) ran a cracking race on his belated return and has a fair bit of ability. TAAYEL defeated him that day but I reckon he will ge loads better after the run, big chance.
LANCELOT DU LAC 1630 NEWMARKET (treble) – (WON – 3-1) ran eyecatchingly well last time over 7f and just faded up the hill towards the finish. The drop back to 6f should suit and the rain should help too. Big run expected from me today.
PYTHAGOREAN 1455 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) has been running consistently well and has wins on fast and good ground. The rain I don't think has affected the ground at Goodwood as much and this fella has a good chance at this trip today.
MIDNITE ANGEL 1420 GOODWOOD – (unplaced) another horse running really well and has the ability to go in. She has decent form through her narrow defeat to J Wonder, although it was let down at York earlier. She holds Amazing Maria through that form and should win today.
SIRIUS PROSPECT 1405 YORK – (WON – 5-2) finally got his nose back infront over course and distance in July and never got competitive at Glorious Goodwood from a poor draw. I'm hoping he can bounce back again as he has some serious form from a few years back.
ELIDOR 1440 YORK – (unplaced) I really rate Martin Harley as a jockey, but last time on this horse he got it wrong and never got him in the race. He will stay this trip I have no doubt and the jockey will make up for his last error today and get him competitive earlier on. He was a Royal Ascot winner don't forget and I think he will take this today over an extended distance.
WILSHIRE BOULEVARD 1515 YORK – (2nd – 4-1) won last time out after finding 5f too sharp at Royal Ascot, plus it was on the back of a success just a few days prior and it may have come too soon. He should appreciate the ground today and he looks like an improving horse.
