After what you would call a typical Saturday, we are back with another First/Final Word Special….. What’s Special you ask? Well your have to carry on reading to find out….. But first … Saturday’s housekeeping….

Rich’s Nap – Adamant – Runner up , beaten a neck not a navel!

Charlie’s Results

Beyond The Clouds -Finished 12th and was a loss.

Vintage Clouds – Finished 3rd Advised Eachway at 12-1

William Henry -Finished 4th and was a loss.

 

First Word – with Charlie!

Ludlow 2.35 –Ut Majeur Aulmes -Although hasn’t won for a while it’s last 5 races read as 22344 coupled with Richard Johnson today and looks well treated on previous form and is overdue winning one of these hopefully today is the day.

.

Huntingdon 7.30 –Baron Du Plessis – is another one I like although hasn’t won as yet, is nicely bred being related to Sir Du Plessis and Altesse Du Plessis, has placed 3rd twice and 2nd once in last 3 runs, latest 3rd was over 3m 1f 44y at Hereford. Drops in trip considerably to 2m 7f 129y and that could be what is required to gain that Ellusive first win.

.

I will now pass you over to Rich for his Final Word.

Final Word – Yarmouth

After being disappointed by Adamant on Saturday, I do like the chances of Getabird at Punchestown. I have TWO trackers in the same race at the Festival, with Monalee and Shattered Love running against each other.

I decide to go to Yarmouth instead…. Luchadore(1.50) made her debut on the 7th of this month at Kempton, in a 5f Class 4 Novice Stakes, finishing a 2 & 1/2 length 4th. The runner up has since won and has race experience and fitness on her side up against many unraced Fillies’ in this 5f Maiden.

Frankie Dettori & John Gosden team up at 2.55, Without Parole, a Frankel colt makes season return in a 1m Class 5 Novice Stakes. Having won on debut in the safe hands of Rab Havlin at Newcastle over 1m on December 16th by 6 lengths……

And finally the unbeaten Mordin(4.00) takes to the turf for the first time. A Lingfield(AW) winner on debut by 2 & 1/4 lengths back in December over a mile and made season return a winning one at Kempton(AW) in a 1m Class 5 Novice Stakes by 1 length. Now steps up to 1m 2f and up in class on handicap debut from a mark of 85, looking to make it 3 from 3…..

Our latest Rising Star Interview was released on Sunday, this week we talk to Richard Fahey’s apprentice Seb Woods, so have a read. The Interview series is thriving and we already have the next few lined up and many more on the horizon…..

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
