Charlie will take you through his Runners for Monday & update his Sunday Selections & I will see you for a brief Final Word –

Cheers Rich, let’s kick things off with Sunday’s Results :

Alpha Centauri – Was a tad disappointing finished 5th and was a loss.

Cloth Of Stars –was beaten 1 and 1/2 length into 2nd place and was another loss.

Hee Haw – was a let down finished 5th and was yet another loss.

.Well Sunday was poor again with all 3 selections losing, hopefully get back on track with Monday’s selections listed below.


Charlie’s Selections


Pikarnia -Has a win and 4 places from last 5 runs and looks the one most likely to win this,as has placed 2nd here last twice over 2m 4f and 2m 7f . Was 9-2 when selected but has shortened to 7-2 at time of writing blog.

Win Advised


Alahida -Was 4th on debut at Naas over 1m then was 5th next time out at Balinrobe over 1m 2f. Drops back to 1m here and yard have started firing again since then and a chance is taken on the win here with P Smullen on board.

Win Advised


Delannoy – Won by some 6 length in a seller at Goodwood two weeks ago has been raised 3lb for that, retains same headgear worn for last win and could repeat that here if in same frame of mind.

Win Advised

Well that’s my thoughts on Monday’s races, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will pass you back over to Rich for his final word.



Rich’s Final Word

Not much to report folks really, enjoyed the racing on Sunday & while I had a personal bet on Cracksman, Elarqam & Vazirabad(All Won) I was a little downbeat about the PN Choices… No biggie, I dusted myself down & enjoyed OOSG winning & won well, as did Caravaggio(Scat Daddy 5F) I should of known better….

Not much around tomorrow, I have a tracker Funkyfootsteps running at Brighton(4.25), but I like Av a Word in that race, 3 out of 3 over C/D & 2 wins from 3 with Luke Morris on board, while another C/D winner Luxford(4.55) returns to the only course he has won at, 2 out of 2 over C/D & is reunited with Martin Dwyer, who has been on board for both C/D wins!

Quadriller(Not the AW flat horse) but a hurdler, runs at Newton Abbott, short odds, won last month over hurdles(2X Chase winner) by 7 lengths & MG Nolan keeps the ride!

Plenty there, but it is a Monday after a Group race weekend, so be Careful…..
