PN Result(Saturday) – The New One – SP 1/1

We now hand over to Charlie for him to take you through his Saturday Selection Results and then deliver his Sunday Service, I will see you for Final Word…. Charlie the floor is yours…..

Cheers Rich, we will start with a recap on Saturday’s performance.

Midnight Tune -Finished 4th and was a loss.

Jenkins – Won as expected at 5-1 but with a rule 4 of 10p in the pound means it paid out as 9-2

Hainan – could only manage 3rd and was another loss.

Just the one winner on Saturday but will take that on a difficult day. Selections for Sunday are listed below :

Goring One – Was 3rd in a Class 5 Handicap Chase at Fontwell in November over 2m 5f, was then sent to Wincanton to contest a Class 5 Handicap Chase over 3m 2f in December and won wearing cheekpieces for first time. Was then sent to Fontwell to contest another Class 5 Handicap Chase over 3m 1f and won again, has been raised 6lbs and the cheekpieces return today and another bold display can’t be discounted.

Win Advised

.

Foxrock -Was in excellent form last season winning 3 Hunter Chases in a row before being pulled up in the Irish Grand National, has moved yards to Alan Flemming and the booking of Katie Walsh is a positive, Foxrock won this race last year and although is yet to see a racecourse this season can’t be ruled out on previous form and would be foolish to dismiss.

Win Advised

.

Fareeq -Yet to score on the all-weather this term, although hinted of a return to form when 3rd here over 5f on the 4th January, goes back up in trip to 6f and a bold run is anticipated.

Win Advised

.

Well that’s my thoughts on today’s Main 3 selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will hand you over to Rich for the Final Word.

Final Word

Just a Couple for you today, both at Thurles …..

Where A Toi Phil(2.50) goes in the Grade 2 Kinloch Brae Chase(2m 4f) sice winning a Grade 2 Chase at Gowran, he has finished 4th to Disko(Grade 2 Chase) at Down Royal, 2nd toAplha Des Obeaux(Grade 2) at Clonmel before finishing 4th to Sizing John in the John Durkin at Punchestown on December 10th and was runner up last time out to Bachasson in a Listed Chase at Tramore on New Years Day. Top rated in the race.

And in the 4.20 Gilgamboa, who was forth in the 2016 Grand National to Rule the World, who has since finished runner up in a Grade 2 Chase at Navan and was brought down in a following Grade 2 Chase at Cork in December 2016. Has run in a couple of PTP races since before taking a Down Royal 2m 6f Hunters Chase by 3/4’s of a length with today’s  rider Nina Carberry on board.
