This game is tough….. Easy to find winners they say, it’s all in the form or handicapping….. ok, well it’s not! WE can study all we like, but if the horse has an off day or the jockey leaves it too much to do… Then what can we do??? Anyway…. Moan over….
People’s Nap Choices –
Goodwood – Soft
3.10 – Handicap – Class 4 -1m 2f
Me Too Nagasaki – Won at Doncaster in a class 3 1m handicap on heavy ground, 2nd over 1m last time in a class 4 handicap, with 1st, 3rd & 4th have all won since last seen, up in trip -13/8
3.45 – Foundation Stakes – Class 1 Listed – 1m 2f
Frankuus – Haydock Listed winner this time last year before winning a Chantilly Group 3 contest. Took a while to get going this term before a 2nd to Defoe in a Hamilton Listed contest. Won again at Haydock in a Group 3 before finishing a disappointing 8 length 5th to Fabricate in a Group 3 at Windsor on good to firm ground, prefers softer ground so this is perfect – 11/4
Kempton(AW) – Standard to Slow
8.40 – Handicap – Class 3 – 3YO Only – 1m 3f
Alfarris – Won by a short head last time out form Barwell & Statesman was back in 3rd, Barwell has since won & Statesman won 2 from the next 3, 2 in class 2. Ran twice on the AW at Chelsford in May, winning a maiden & beaten runner up by a short head, could be a head bobber – 7/2
PN Result(Tuesday) – Harba – Unplaced
I will hand you to Charlie to deliver his thoughts on today & yesterday. Final Word follows……
Cheers Rich, we will kick things off with Tuesday’s results :
. Not the day I wanted with all 3 selections not running as I’d hoped, hopefully get back on track with Wednesday’s selections listed below.
| Landmeafortune (Nap)
Perth 17:05 • 27th Sep ’17
Win @ 11/4
Won on heavy ground at Ayr over 3m back in January. Was then 2nd at Carlisle over 3m in February, was then sent here in April and was 3rd over 3m 6f. Takes a considerable drop in distance here but ground isn’t an issue and if fully fit after break could easily take this race.
| Rema Al Kuwait (Nb)
Redcar 14:00 • 27th Sep ’17
Win @ 9/1
Expensive purchase at £100,000 for D O’meara yard, has shaped well in first few races and the further distance in this race and first spell in a handicap are positives here and a bold run can’t be discounted.
| Semana Santa (3b)
Redcar 17:45 • 27th Sep ’17
Win @ 12/1
Won on tapeta last April, but hasn’t added to that, although has placed a couple of times since. Has slipped to a dangerous Mark and takes a drop in grade here and I feel today could be the day for that elusive win.
.Well that’s my thoughts on Wednesday’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 –
The weekend edges closer & soon final declarations will be made for the Arc on Sunday….. I’m sure 3 Furlongs Out will be putting something out, maybe with Stats & Runners & History maybe….. I’m sure Charlie & Myself found the winner of last years Melbourne cup…. Also the new 3 Furlongs Out magazine is released this weekend too. Charlie & myself have submitted a few pieces, so keep your eyes peeled for that too…
I only looked at Goodwood & Kempton today, apart from the PN Choices I only found 2 others at really short prices – Setting Sail, debut 2nd by 3/4’s of a length at 1m steps up to 1m 2f & in class from 4 to 3 at Goodwood(2.10) While Barton Mills looks to improve on the runner up spot in a class 4 novice race, having been beaten 1/2 a length on debut & 4th has since won, with the front Two, 2 & 1/2 lengths clear of 3rd runs at Kempton(6.40)
That’s a wrap guys good luck with your bets and enjoy the rest of your day.
Charlie and Rich
