Charlie has his Sunday Sermon now, with his Thoughts for today &  a recap of yesterday. I however will see you for Final Word –

Cheers Rich, let’s kick off with Saturday’s Results :

The Tin Man –Was 3rd and therefore a loss.

Firmament –Was 5th and was yet another loss.

Eminent – was 3rd and again was another loss.

.Not the day I wanted with all 3 selections losing. Hopefully get back on track with Sunday’s selections listed below.

Charlie’s Selections


Alpha Centauri – Two wins and a 2nd from last 3 races over 6f. Sets the standard here having won a maiden at Naas. Then winning again at Naas 20 days later. Latest 2nd at Ascot in a Class 1 group 3 race beaten by a neck by Different League. This race is more of a challenge than previous affairs although can get involved again.

Win Advised


Cloth Of Stars – Has won last 3 races including a group 3, a group 2 and a group 1. Hasn’t been seen since winning the Group 1 Prix Ganay. Goes well fresh and looks a major player over today’s new trip.

Win Advised


Hee Haw – Was a decent performer for K Dalgliesh before moving to P T Midgely where it took a while to get going. Gained first victory for new yard at Ripon last time out over 6f and steps up in class here and another bold show can’t be ruled out.

Win Advised

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


Rich’s Final Word

The Irish Champions weekend threw up a few shocks yesterday with Winter & Churchill getting beat & it continues tomorrow when it is likely that Aiden O’Brien COULD have a 1/2/3/4 in the 3.40…… While Gustav Klimt(4.15) & Order of St George(4.50) could bring the bookies to their knee’s.

Chantilly(France) also hold a cracking days racing with plenty of Group races on the card. Cracksman(1.50) fresh from winning the Great Voltigeur(G2 C1), the Derby runner up puts his Arc credentials to the test, while Vazirabad(5.10) looks to retain the race having won this  last season after the C/D Group 1 win returning after winning in Meydan.

& Finally at York Elarqam(3.35) a non runner yesterday makes his season debut, the Frankel colt who cost 1.6 million Guineas & is trained by Mark Johnston holds a few Group entries fro later in this month & next…Highly thought of!
