Hello folks, this is a special Birthday blog… Rich is another year older but possibly not much wiser… A standard blog with Charlies selections and Rich with a Birthday Final Word….
Drovers Lane -Has won 3 times and placed 2nd once from last 5 runs, wins have came at Uttoxeter, Worcester and Hereford over 2m to 3m 1f. Was a bit unlucky last time out at Aintree when finishing 7th after travelling well before making a blunder 3 from home. Drops back in trip to 2m 5f and 89y today and if fully recovered from that blunder at Aintree should fair better here.
Ticklish -Won a Class 5 Maiden Auction race on debut at Lingfield over 1m, was then sent to Longchamp and finished 5th over 1m in October. Latest race was at Kempton in a Class 6 Auction over 1m and finished 3rd after being too keen from the front. Takes a drop in distance to 7f and 14y and should return to winning ways if settling better.
Walk On Water -Won at Wolverhampton last time out over 6f beating Monumental Man by a nose, has been raised 3lbs for that win and if in same mindset today could go in again although will need a bit of luck in running.
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 his Birthday Bashing Final Word.
Final Word with Rich –
Thanks Charlie, lets hope it’s a day to remember…. Only a couple of places from this column yesterday, so I am hoping for a lot better today & a birthday winner would be just grand…. I have one at Market Rasen and a couple on the All Weather, so lets get cracking….
Market Rasen… Good to Soft…
2.00 Novice Handicap Chase… Class 3… 2m 5f 89yds…
Drovers Lane had a fine summer, winning two from 4 runs before having a break and returning on October 16th and making Chase debut in a C3 Novice Chase, winning by 9 lengths. Ran again on October 28th at Aintree in a C3 Novice Handicap Chase and was in contention & travelling well until a mistake 3 fences from home and faded out of contention and finished 23 lengths back in 7th… A drop back in trip today may help and if mistakes are kept to a minimum it could be a good day….
1.20 Handicap Class 2… 1m 4f 98yds…
Victoria Drummond is a Sea the Stars filly who has won her last 2 starts since returning from a break. Winning by 1/2 a length at Chelmsford in a 1m 5f handicap on October 25th before a facile 9 length win at Southwell over 1m 4f in a Class 4 Handicap. Runs under a penalty today and is due to go up again after this race, so could be a good day to catch her before the penalty hike kicks in….
2.55 Maiden… Class 4… 2YO Only… 1m 2f 4yds…
Jalmoud is a New Approach colt out of Oaks winning Dam Dancing Rain. He is the FULL brother to Magic Lilly, who was a winner on 2YO debut and today he makes race course debut for Charlie Appleby.. Could be a one to WATCH for next season!
DANGER… Red Centre… Australia colt trained by John Gosden, who has a decent record at Newcastle. The colt was a 3 & 1/4 length 3rd on debut at Haydock over 1m on September29th and steps up in trip today….
6.00 Fillies’ Novice Stakes… Class 5… 1m 142yds..
Continere… War Front filly, who was beaten by a nose over C/D on race course debut in a C5 Novice Stakes on October 30th. That form has been boosted with the winner going in again next time out….
DANGER… Panmolle…. Lawman filly, who was also a 1 & 1/4 length runner up on race course debut over 7f at Lingfield on September 5th in a C5 Novice Stakes. The winner has since won again & finished 2nd, while 3rd has also won since….
That’s all for today folks, a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us over the last couple of years, without you this would all be pointless….
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
