Hello again folks, yes we know we are a bit sporadic with blog post’s at the moment, a bit like the weather and the quality of race cards…. WE will only produce a blog when we are comfortable with our thoughts and selections. WE appreciate your patience and hopefully we will be back up and running, full steam ahead. AS the title suggests, it’s just the PN and Final Word today, so let’s crack on…..

PN Result( Monday) – Razin’ Hell – Finished 4th…..

Final Word – With Rich & Charlie 

Rich – Just a couple from me today and I will start with the opening race at Lingfield, which is a Class 6 Maiden, run over 1m 4f. Victoria Drummond(12.10) is a Sea the Stars Filly, trained by Mark Johnston, who usually has them ready to go if not a little green and with the help of the very experienced Franny Norton on board, I am hoping for a nice start.

My other is from Market Rasen and runs in a Conditional Jockey’s Class 4 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 2f. Barrys Jack(1.30) Has been Chasing the last 3 runs, but now is back over hurdles after unseating, finishing forth and falling when last seen on December 23rd. That was all after winning on chase debut and seasonal return, before winning a Conditional Jockey’s Handicap Hurdle, with Kaine Wood(who is on board today) by 1/2 a length at Carlisle. Won again, this time in a class 3 Handicap Hurdle before going back Chasing…….

Over to you Charlie –

Cheers Rich, with the weather playing havoc with meetings cancelled and changeable conditions I decided to take a step back from tipping, although I do have a couple of Nicky Henderson’s that caught my eye at Newbury, Percy Street in the opener and OK Corral in the 1.50, Henderson also has two nicely bred debutants in the final race at Newbury Morning Vicar who is a Beneficial gelding out of My Little Vic and Knighthood who is a Delegator Gelding out of Love Roi, well that’s everything and brings today’s post to a conclusion, please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket and if you don’t fancy anything just watch the races and enjoy.

All the Best – Charlie and Rich
