We took a few days after New Year to spend with our families and to take stock of, what for us here at HQ was a phenomenal year, with over 24,800 view for 2018 and that is unbelievable, considering in March we had less than a 1,000 views for the first 3 months of the year… We would just like to thank everyone who gave us an interview and helped us through 2018… THANK YOU.
Standard blog with Charlies Saturday Selections while Rich will have the Final Word…. So lets get the party started….
Darius Des Bois 🌟🌟-Was a winner over 3m at Newbury in a Class 4 Handicap Hurdle back in March last year after having a wind op. Was then sent to Ayr and placed 2nd over 3m in a Class 3 Novice Hurdle in April. Was then put away until making reappearance at Ludlow on the 5th December when finishing 2nd over 3m in a Class 3 Novice Chase. Drops back in trip for today’s race and although stays further this looks like a positive move by the Champion Trainer Nicky Henderson who will want to get a positive result before finalising his Cheltenham target and at 5-2 is today’s Nap selection.
Le Reve 🌟🌟-Has won here over course and distance twice in the past and showed a bit of encouragement last time out when making reappearance after having a lengthy absence finishing 3rd of 3 in a veterans race at Warwick in November. A positive is the fact that today’s race is on a right handed track and all wins have came when racing on right handed tracks and at 15-2 could be a nice Eachway play for today’s 3b.
Kupatana 🌟🌟-Has finished 1st or 2nd in all races completed since March last year, although only blip came last time out when unseating jock at Wincanton in December over 2m 4f. If jumping better here can make amends for that blip last time out and give Nicky Henderson another winner and at 4-1 is today’s Nb selection.
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.
