Hello and Welcome to a Friday Edition of arseoninetips blog. We decided to take a few day’s away to recover from the weekend and to recharge our batteries. WE are both back today, with Charlie’s Friday Selections and Rich will finish with his Final Word. There is plenty to get through, so we shall put our best foot forward…. Left, right left!
Charlie’s Selection’s & Housekeeping –
Cheers Rich, let’s get down to results from Monday first and they are listed below.
Tart Tropezienne -was travelling well until tiring in the final stages finishing 3rd and was a loss.
First Selection -in touch with leaders 2f out but was one paced finishing 3rd and was another loss.
Vaniteux -was 2nd until just before the last and was another disappointing 3rd.
A tad unlucky to get all 3 running well without a return, but we’re on the right track with our selections, it’s only a matter of time before we turn those places into winners.
Now that’s the results out the way please find my selections for Friday below .
Time To Study -Has two wins and two 2nd places from last 5 starts including winning the Mallard at Doncaster and also won a Class 2 At Newbury over 1m 5f. More recently has finished 2nd at Musselburgh in a Class 2 handicap over 1m 5f, and then placed 2nd at Ascot in a Class 2 race over 1m 7f last time out jock Franny Norton is two wins from 3 on board Time To Study and another bold run is anticipated here.
Imphal -Nathaniel gelding who was 2nd at Bath in June last year beaten 1 and 3/4 length by Newt. Then went on to win next 4 races first of those was back at Bath when beating Plato’s Code by 1 and 3/4 length with Newt in 3rd some 5 lengths further back. Next win came at Bath again when beating Londonia by 4 and 1/2 length. Goodwood was next venue and Imphal won again beating Kozier by a short head, last victory came at Lingfield when again winning by a short head from Fulham. That form may not be the best but to win 4 races on the spin takes some doing and although this is a step up in Class from Class 5 to Class 3 company and is now carrying 5lb more another bold display can’t be ruled out.
Newsworthy -Although not a prolific winner, won well enough last time out at Balinrobe over 2m 3f beating Spancil Hill by 1 and 1/2 length now 6lb higher as a result of that win, normal jock Mr S Cavanagh has been replaced by Jack Kennedy and another bold run looks likely here.
Well that’s my thoughts on today’s selections, good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you back over to Rich for the Final Word.
Rich’s Final Word –
I don’t usually mention past results from this part of the blog, but if you follow us, you will know that this section landed a few winner’s on Sunday. When I feel the right horse is running, I will bring back my Nap and also the Peoples Nap! This part of today’s blog is dedicated to the evening flat meeting at Ascot, so here we go….
A very nice Fillies’ Maiden takes place at 6.00, Class 4 for 2 year old Only, who are running over the minimum distance of 5f. William Haggas teams up with James Doyle, as he gives a debut to his Exceed and Excell Filly Queen of Burmuda. She cost 230,000 guineas at a Breeze-Up and is a half sister to Elecrelane.
While Richard Hannon runs his Kodiac Filly, a 360,000 guineas Craven Breeze-Up purchase. You may remember her from the twitter video, so was incredibly quick in the brief 30 second clip. She is owned by the same people that own Leicester City, hence her name Come On Leicester and she also makes her race course debut today. Both could be NOTEBOOK fillies’, so watch this space!
Corgi(6.35) will be hoping to break the maiden tag today in the Class 3 1m 4f for 3 year olds Maiden. Having finished runner up on final 2 year old start and made seasonal return last month at Newbury. Again finishing runner up, but this time by 5 lengths to the impressive Chester Group 3 winner Young Rascal, while 6th place Blazing Saddles is now a Class 3 winner. Not too bad form!
The so far successful partnership between William Haggas and James Doyle are in action again in the 7.05 Class 2, 3 year old 7f handicap. They team up with Society Power, who as a 2YO was 2 wins and 1 place from 3 runs, including on turf. The Society Rock Colt won on season return at Wolverhampton(AW), when beating Vale of Kent in a Class 3 handicap. The Combo have a 100% SR with this horse, 2 wins from 2 runs…..
And finally …. 7.40.. Class 3 Handicap 6f….. See’s Dreamfield return after last being seen winning a Newmarket 7f Class 2 by a short head. The Oasis Dream Colt is 2 from 2 starts for John Gosden. James Doyle is on board and makes a long awaited return!
That’s everything covered for today Folks. Our latest Interview with Phillip Dennis is one of the most popular we have done and is pinned to Rich’s Twitter (@FunkysTips) for you to have a read, please feel free to share too….
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
