Well my old man gave me a true pasting on the blot last week. He tipped up BRONZE ANGEL (14-1) to win the Cambridgeshire and Exitas (6-1) at Market Rasen too. He’s getting closer in the standings but still a bit off in the profit with only a few weeks of the flat season left. We reset when the jumps start! I got up this morning and saw some strange wet stuff falling from the sky and had kind of forgotten what it was! I’m sat typing the blog thinking will it or won’t it rain at Newmarket and Ascot to affect the ground. Anyway whatever happens we’ve got some cracking racing to look forward to and of course the Arc tomorrow – for me TAGROODHA wins that!
Good luck today if you’re having a flutter – here are my selections.
RECKLESS ABANDON 1515 ASCOT (NAP) – (unplaced = -£5.00) was such a smart two year old and even more so with cut in the ground. Has been getting his head back around racing this year and a decent second to MECCAS ANGEL in September, who has gone on and won again since is a decent form line. I’m hoping some of the aforementioned wet stuff gets in the ground to help his chances. He must have a great shout off 110 today.
YODELLING 1455 NEWMARKET (NB) – (NR) she was so impressive on her racecourse debut in a race that Godolphin have such a good record in. She was going easily and won in a canter. She’s bred to run at this level and higher and I’m expecting big things from her today and in the future.
FINTRY 1530 NEWMARKET (TREBLE) – (3rd – 7-2 = £2.18) Maxim Guyon has deserted this fella in preference for Miss France. I’m not about to desert him though. I was on when he battled well to win at Sandown last time and despite taking a bit of winding up he was comfortably clear of the rest. Come rain or shine he will act on the ground and I think Monsieur Guyon will regret his decision.
MUTHMIR 1405 ASCOT – (NR) I have to put this guy on despite his short price – pretty similar to TIGGY WIGGY last week, its like printing money with this one. Won the Portland with loads in hand despite blowing the start and having a poor passage. Bags of class and should take this too if the rain doesn’t get in! If he’s a non-runner my other selection for the blog purpose is below.
MORACHE MUSIC 1550 ASCOT – has a decent record here and his current mark of 106 is doable. Ran very well on good ground to beat BADR AL BADOOR at Donny and was just behind JUSTICE DAY at Haydock in July. BADR AL BADOOR has since franked the form beating DANZENO and they both go up in class today. JUSTICE DAY goes against MUTHMIR also in a better race. This guy stays where he is and has a great chance!
My Dad’s selections are :
