We have had a few days off since Cheltenham, the weather has not helped so we took it upon ourselves to publish some of the Interviews and articles we had written but had not published for ourselves, as they had been published by 3 Furlongs Out. It’s been very busy, with our blog hitting more than 1,100 views this month(yes that is a lot for us and we are very happy)
We looked through the cards and found a few we liked, so we decided to put this blog together for you….
Rich’s Nap – Yes I have a Nap today!
4.45 – Handicap – Class 4 – 3YO Only – 5f(4f 210y)
Grandfather Tom – The Kheleyf 3 year old colt has run up a 3 timer for trainer Robert Cowell since dropping from 6f to the minimum 5f. Landing two Class 6 5f Novice Stakes at Lingfield before taking a 5f Class 4 Handicap at Newcastle last time out from Lord of the Glen by 1 & 1/4 lengths…. 11/8
I shall pass you over to Charlie, who will take you through his runners….
Cheers Rich, it’s always nice to get back in the saddle after a successful Cheltenham, so without further adieu let’s crack on with my selections for Wednesday listed below.
Hills Of Dubai -Comes here chasing a hat-trick of wins, having won twice at Ayr over 2m 4f on heavy ground. Has been raised 2lb for latest victory and although steps up in class here looks as though the step up will suit and should be involved at the business end of race.
Whiskey Chaser -Is a course and distance winner although that was back in December, has posted 3 poor runs since that win. Had been wearing blinkers before, those are removed today and replaced by first time visor. Hopefully the visor does the job and helps Whiskey return to the winners enclosure.
Brynmawr -Comes from the Tizzard Yard and won easily enough at Southwell last time out over 2m 4f on soft ground, won wearing cheekpieces last time and they are retained today although is now 8lb higher,this race isn’t that competitive with almost the whole field having questions to answer form wise, and a chance is taken that Brynmawr can make it two wins on the bounce.
.Well that’s my thoughts on Wednesday’s selections, 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 The Final Word.
Final Word –
It’s been a long few days since Cheltenham ended and I hope you all enjoyed the racing as much as we did, the Lincoln herald’s the start of the new flat season on Saturday at Doncaster and we will be looking at all the early races with eager anticipation, looking for the potential Group winners & 2 year olds to add to the tracker for later in the season and next couple of years…. But back to today….
Like my Nap, another I like run’s at Southwell at 4.10 in a Class 5 Novice Stakes… Silchester is a twice raced Bellamy Road Colt, who won over 1m on debut by 3 lengths over C/D before finishing runner up last time out when dropped back to 7f at this course, now restored to the mile and should go very well.
At Kempton, the evening all weather meeting, I mention this horse last time out, I may even have Napped it. Warburton(6.45) The Dawn Approach gelding finished a 4 & 1/4 length 4th on debut at Wolves over 1m 1f 109y and now drops back to the mile with William Buick taking the reigns and should improve for the run and the drop back in trip
And Finally over at Limerick, another I have mentioned a few times Dinaria Des Obeaux(4.15) runs in a Mares’ Grade 2, 2m 6f Novice Chase, looking to build on the Mares’ Listed & Grade 3 chases she has won this season. 3rd last time out behind Cheltenham Mares’ Hurdle winner Bernie Des Dieux by 5 & 1/2 lengths over 2m and now stepped up in trip after winning both races over 2m 4f….
All the best if taking any interest, the 3 above are all likely to go off ODDS on favourites or at least be very short prices.
Thanks for popping by folks and for the support.
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
