It’s over to Charlie now to take you through his results & I will see you for Final Word ….
Cheers Rich, let’s get straight down to Monday’s Results :
Off The Charts -Fell and was a loss.
The Rory Story -Finished last and was another loss.
Edge -Finished 7th and is yet another loss.
Disappointing day with all 3 selections losing yesterday. I had a look at Tuesday’s cards and nothing stood out so it’s just Rich today. I will hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.
Final Word –
I know what some folk are thinking….. Rich has put up an ODDS ON pick…. Well I know plenty who will love it IF it get’s beat, but hey I am not really bothered about them… Here are the best of the rest on a rough Tuesday –
Over at Chepstow, I found what I think is a bit of a diamond in the rough, General Consensus(1.15) 3rd on NH Flat race debut for new yard, over 2m 2f at Punchestown by 6 & 3/4 lengths, but in 4th that day was Moyross, who has since taken the eye winning 2 hurdle races in Ireland since & at double figure odds, could out run those odds on hurdle debut. While Smart Boy(3.55) won at Plumpton on debut for new trainer Jack Barber, a week ago, by 30 lengths & is turned out under a penalty.
AND Finally, Nicky Henderson runs War Creation(3.05 Bangor) who returns for the season having been seen back in April finishing 4th at Perth(2m) in a class 4 handicap hurdle, with winner Night Owl winning since, 2nd has won a couple & 3rd has also won.
That’s all for today, nothing really took my eye at Wolverhampton.
Thanks for your support this month. 3 Furlongs Out Magazine will be out on Wednesday & keep them peeled for our Breeders Cup – Unravelled!
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
