Mittens – C/D winner earlier this month in a Class handicap during the Royal meeting, winning by 3 & 1/4 lengths, that was a second Class 3 handicap win on the bounce, also by over 3 lengths, deserves to step up to this class – 4/1

PN Result(Thursday) – Finishing Touch – is possibly still finishing………

Over to Charlie for his selections –

Before I go into Friday’s selections I will recap on Thursday’s Results.

Mr Caffrey – Won as expected Advised at 3-1

Agnethe – could only manage 5th and was a loss.

Mister Music – Was a non runner

. Again it was another frustrating day with one Winner and a non runner from my 3 selections. It’s becoming a bit tiresome now, hopefully get back to winning ways with Friday’s selections listed below.

Dark Sunset – Bought by D McCain in April after placing 2nd in an Irish point race for £8,000 , wouldn’t need to be anything special to land this debut for new trainer.

Win Advised

.

Destiny’s Gold – Had won here over course and distance back in May, then placed 3rd at Aintree and 2nd at Southwell. Should be there about again and looks the one to beat here.

Win Advised

Only the two selections today as I didn’t find anything else I liked. Please remember to keep stakes small and enjoy your races.

 

 

 

Rich’s Final Thought –

Before I depart for the weekend break, maybe a touch longer who knows! Anyway I cannot go without mentioning the Farce at Yarmouth yesterday….. Wrong horse in wrong race & nobody knew??? Has it happened before?? How has it happened?? What checks were missed? How can you not tell the two horses apart?? So many question’s ….. Surely a big fine for the trainer to come, disciplinary for the course staff too. A shambles is a decent way to describe it…. Farce…. Void race for sure. You also have to feel for the other trainers, Jockey’s & staff who had runners in the race. What do they do? If race is void, can they claim back expenses etc??? Big BHA inquiry to come…..
