Only a short blog today as I'm short of time!last week was a decent week with my nap GREY GOLD (4-1) and my nb GRENDISAR (9-4) winning. Despite the heavens opening we are racing again today! Here are my selections below – hopefully throwing a winner or two up.
FAR WEST 1535 NEWBURY (nap) – (FELL = -£5.00) was a top juvenile last year and handles the ground really well. Returned a bad scope last time behind MELODIC RENDEZVOUS and he would have been closer but for the stomach ulcers he had. If he is close to Melodic then he will be close here today. You generally need to have a bit in your locker and I think this guy has as I think he's better than his current mark. Harry's 5lb will really he,p in this ground as it did last week.
AL FEROF 1425 NEWBURY (nb) – (2nd – 5-4 = £0.78) the ground could be getter for this boy but I still think he will take all the beating today and for me 13/8 is a huge price. He'll jump them into the ground and has more class thean any of these. He should win comfortably.
DODGING BULLETS 1500 NEWBURY (treble) – (2nd – = £1.25) this finishes off my Nicholls treble and he has been a revelation over fences. He was decent over the smaller obstacles but has shown huge improvements in the sphere. It will be a battle with MODULE but he has a touch more ability for me.
ANDY KELLY 1350 NEWBURY – (FELL = -£5.00) hardly had any racing compared to others. Will like the ground and has some decent form in the book, beating KILMURVY easily and then going down by a short margin at Ascot.

IRISH SAINT 1535 NEWBURY (3rd – 6-1 = £3.75)
