Another so-so kind of day yesterday, seem to be repeating myself here, albeit Stephanie Kate did win and Brackloon High dead heated in front so we ultimately came out about evens. Picked the wrong Johnston animal for the Nap alas. Will start putting early prices against the selections also to try and improve my stats!
The Irish Boys sent over a couple of selections and bar a last fence fall the service would have probably started with a winner but Mount Welcome whom I backed at 4/1 managed to fluff his lines and fall, the other selection was disappointing.
Today’s racing in one word is fantastic. Newbury’s rescheduled card from Saturday is mouth-watering as many big guns for Cheltenham look to get in a last prep run and of course there’s a couple of competitive handicaps, Sandown has its military cup day and also a couple of other decent looking races and last but not least my local track Fakenham has some decent horses in action, usually the best runner at the track is rated about 120 but today the likes of Ogee, Barbers Shop and Like Minded are all in attendance in what looks a belting card for the track. I’ll be making a rare appearance so will get a few photos and the like ..
Will add the system Nap later –
12.40 Burton Port @ 8/1
