A feast before Christmas

Hello and Welcome to ArseonlineRacing. This website has NO affiliate links & is 100% Independent.
Curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles, who were socially distancing before it became mandatory!
Charlie hails from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight, miles apart but brought together by their passion for Racing…..

Soon this sight will be a thing of the past…..

Right lets get a few bits & pieces sorted… Order of business if you like!
We are pleased to announce that Jamie & Chris have joined the site as full time contributors and you will now see posts from more than Just Charlie & Rich.
The chaps have been fantastic & we are very happy they have joined us at Arseonline HQ. Jamie makes his Full Time debut today & as this is his first BLOG post, Jamie will lead us out….

Jamie –

Two from Newbury and one from Newcastle for me today.

Newcastle –
2:05 – Fighting Fifth Hurdle – Selection: Epetante

Newcastle’s big race of the year sees Champion Hurdler Epetante make her seasonal bow against six rivals. On official ratings she is 10lbs clear of Silver Streak and I cant see past her against this opposition. Nicky Henderson’s mare is going for a fourth straight win and has the assistance of new jockey Aidan Coleman today, I would say Aidan has been picking the ear of Barry Geraghty as to how to ride her. The ground is perfect for the fleet footed mare. The main dangers are the race fit Sceau Royal and Silver Streak with both winning listed or graded contests so far this season. I would rate Epetante – Sceau Royal – Cornerstone Lad in that order as a good forecast bet.

Newbury –
3:00 – Ladbrokes Trophy – Selection: The Conditional

A typically wide open Ladbrokes Trophy over 3m 2f. The strong test of stamina will suit Cheltenham Festival winner The Conditional who took a big leap forward last season when joining the David Bridgewater yard from Ireland. He took his form to new heights last season over the extended staying trips and took victory in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the festival beating the likes of today’s rivals Kildisart and Vinndication. He may prefer the ground to be a little softer but I am still confident there is a bit more improvement to come from this 8YO. The Condtional ran a mighty race to finish second in this race last year, where he had two runs beforehand. This year he is coming in fresh and I think that maybe to his advantage. Solid chance.

3:35 – Ladbrokes Handicap Chase – Selection: Ibleo (Non Runner)

A field of 8 go to post for this 2m 1/2f test with some unexploded types heading the market. There was a lot of confidence behind Ibleo when he ran at Ascot last month after a three race campaign that yielded two wins and a second in a lower graded races to get his confidence back after a long layoff, 838 days to be exact. I thought he ran a terrific race at Ascot just narrowly going down by a short head to Amoola Gold. That should have blown away the cobwebs and put Ibleo spot on for this race. The ground is a bit of an unknown for his supporters but he looks very well treated at the weights and must have a big chance.
My nap of the day.

Charlie –

Newbury Good

3.00 Ladbrokes Trophy Chase 3m 1f 214y

Vindication – Out of Vinnie Roe and Pawnee Trail, has ran 11 times winning 7 races, including 3 hurdle wins and 3 chase wins and one win on the flat. Comes into this race in good shape having finished a 2 length 2nd to Cyrname at Wetherby last time out over 3m and 45y. If showing up in same mood could gain compensation here in a wide open race with most having questions to answer form wise. Biggest danger comes in the shape of Secret Investor who won last time out at Chepstow.


3.35 Ladbrokes Handicap Chase 2m 92y

Moonlighter -out of Midnight Legend and Countess Camilla. Has ran 13 times winning 3 times, was a decent 2nd on seasonal return at Chepstow last time out when finishing a neck behind Greaneteen over 2m 1f and 109y. That should have blown the cobwebs away and with that run under the belt can gain another victory here at the expense of Zanza and The Russian Doyen who should chase the selection home.



2.53 At the races Handicap Hurdle 2m 3f 88y

Beach Break – Out of Cacique and Wemyss Bay. Has ran 22 times over hurdles winning 5 times, including last time out at Sedgefield when beating Elysees by 4 and 3/4 lengths over 2m 3f and 188y. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of Byron Flyer who has won this race before and has slipped down the weights.


3.28 National Hunt Flat Race 1m 5f

Arthur’s Seat -Out of Champs Elyesse and Sojitzen. Has had just the one run and it was a winning one at Huntingdon, when beating Vivid Luminosity by 4 and 1/2 lengths over 1m 5f and 148y. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of the Alan King trained Masaccio who is making racecourse debut.


Final Word with Rich –

I only have a couple for you today…
Fairyhouse – Soft

1.01 Mares’ Hurdle – Grade 2 – 2m 3f 110yds

Queen’s Brook – Shirocco x Awesome Miracle 5yo Mare.
Last years Cheltenham Festival Bumper (NHF) 3rd made a winning start to life over hurdles, when taking a 2m Maiden at This course on October 10th by a neck.
Runner up on October 30th at Down Royal, when beaten a HEAD in a 2m 100yd Mares’ Grade 3. She is preferred to Cheltenham Festival ‘Dawn Run’ Novice Hurdle winner Concertista, who makes seasonal return….

Bangor – Soft, Heavy in Places…

1.57 Novice Hurdle – Class 4 – 2m 145yds….

Here Comes Johny – Yeats x Strike An Ark 5yo Gelding.
Runner up on NHF debut over 2m 125yds in a Market Rasen Amateur Jockeys race in September before making his hurdles debut on October 16th in a 2m 4f Fakenham Class 4 Maiden Hurdle, winning by 11 lengths from Switch Hitter, who has since won a Kempton Class 4 Novice Hurdle.
Made it 2 wins from 3 starts in 2020 at Sedgefield by 14 lengths when landing a 2m 4f Class 4 Novice Hurdle on November 9th….

That is everything for you today folks, thanks for popping by & Stay Safe….

Rainy Sunday Afternoon….

Welcome to Arseonlineracing. This website is 100% independent & has NO affiliate links.
Curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles (Social distancing before it was fashionable) with Charlie hailing from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight. Miles apart but united by the sport of NO Spectators…..

Interesting day yesterday with Rich having a 3rd (Darver Star) & Carrolls Milan, a very, very fortunate winner along with a non runner, while for Charlie, Fusil Raffles was pulled up before The Nosey Parker won nicely and his final selection leaf hopper winning as well.
Not a bad day all round, so we thought we would bring you a BONUS Sunday blog…. Which includes a Head to Head at Cheltenham!

Charlie usually leads the way but today we will go Head to Head before we give you the rest of our thoughts….

Cheltenham ( Soft)…
2.25 The Cheltenham Chase – Grade 2 – 1m 8f….

Charlie –

Riders On the Storm – Out of Scorpion and Endless Moments, winner of the Virgin Bet Handicap Chase at Aintree on the 9th November last year beating Cepage by 1 and 3/4 lengths over 2m 3f and 200y. Was sent to Ascot on the 21st December to race in the Betfair Exchange Graduation Chase over 2m 5f and 8y, won again beating On The Blind Side by 7 lengths. It would be February before we saw Riders On The Storm grace a racetrack again in the Betfair Ascot Chase on the 15th February, and Riders on the Storm won again beating Janika by 14 lengths over 2m 5f and 8y. Cheltenham was the venue of Riders On The Storm latest race in March this year when falling in the Ryan Air Chase when looking as though if he stayed up he would have won again. This looks a tougher race on paper and with the going being soft on the Chase course, could turn into a right slog and Riders On The Storm is now a win only selection due to only 4 runners in the field. I wouldn’t put anyone off just skipping this race because of the win only situation due to 4 entries left.

Rich –

Defi Du Seuil – Voix Du Nord x Quarvin Du Seuil 7yo Gelding.
Winner of this race last season when getting the better of Politologue before going on to land the Tingle Creek at Sandown & the Clarence House at Ascot.
Finished 4th to Politoloue in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Festival when last seen in March…

We now revert back to normal with Charlie leading the way & Rich having the final word….

Charlie – Southwell

1.45 Poetry And Art – Out of Poet’s Voice and Ashford Belle, has had 2 starts so far and finished 4th on both occasions, the distance beaten on last run at Chelmsford was under 4 lengths and with normal progress should be capable of winning a race soon hopefully today’s the day for that to happen. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of Black Box who has finished 3rd twice from last 3 starts.


3.30 Ustath – Out of Exceed and Excel and Adorn – Has had 9 runs on the all-weather and won 2 times, won over 5f at Wolverhampton on the 27th April last year when beating Casarubina by 6 lengths. Won last time out here over 5f on the 3rd November this year when beating Kyllachy Warrior by a neck. If handling the extra yardage today could easily go in again with the biggest threat likely to come from Firsteen who makes fibresand debut for Rebecca Menzies.

Final Word with Rich –

As you already have my Cheltenham thought my other 2 come from Punchestown (Soft to Heavy, Heavy in Places)….

1.05 Grabel Mares’ Listed Hurdle – 2m 2f 120yds…

Elimay -Montmartre x Hyde 6yo Mare.
Last seen in January at Thurles when winning the Grade 2 Mares’ 2m 4f Novices Chase by 9 lengths having won a Cork rade 3 2m 160yd Novice Chase in December.
Has won 2 of 4 Hurdle starts having come over from France, including a Listed 2m 4f Mares’ Hurdle at Killarney in May….

2.10 Morgiana Hurdle – Grade 1 – 2m 40yds….

Abacadabras – Davidoff x Cadoubelle De As 6yo Gelding.
Runner up to Shishking in the Supreme Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham back in March having won the 2m Grade 1 Future Champions Hurdle at Leopardstown in December.
Already had a run this term at Down Royal, when finishing a 4 & 1/2 length runner up in the 2m Grade 2 WKD Hurdle to Aspire Tower.
Winner of 3 hurdle races from 5 starts.
NOTE – Willie Mullins has won this race for 9 of the last 10 years!
I am taking on team Mullins…..

Thanks for popping by & we look forward to seeing you all at 7pm for the BIG Interview….. STAY SAFE.

Curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles (Social distancing before it was fashionable) with Charlie hailing from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight. Miles apart but united by the sport of NO Spectators…..

After last weeks Big Arse Blog, we are back to a more relaxed setting of the UK & Irish cards. Although we do have some very tidy racing, with the big NH trainers pitting their wits against each other at this early stage…..

Today is Charlie & Rich but you will see Chris & Jamie return in the near future. Charlie will start proceedings & Rich finish things off…..

Charlie –

Lingfield 1.55The Nosey Parker ⭐⭐⭐(NB) – Out of Dream Ahead and Dorothy Parker, was 2nd on race course debut at Kempton on the 28th October, beaten by 2 and 1/2 lengths by Dyami. Will have learned plenty from that outing and can go one place better today in a very winnable race that looks easier on paper. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of Shecando who was 2nd last time out at Chelmsford on the 10th September. Winner


Cheltenham 1.40 Fusil Raffles 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (Nap) – Out of Saint Des Saints and Tali Des Obeaux. Has won 6 times from 9 UK career starts, the wins include 4 wins over hurdles and 2 wins over fences. The wins over the larger obstacles have came at Uttoxeter when beating Quick Grabim by 4 lengths on the 25th September over 1m 7f and 214 y. Was then sent to Cheltenham on the 23rd October and won again beating Sir Valentine by 9 and 1/2 lengths over 1m 7f and 199 y. Having already won here before and knows what’s expected, can gain another victory to cement target at Cheltenham come March, biggest danger to the selection comes in the shape of Quel Destin who makes chase debut for Paul Nicholls. Pulled up


Wolverhampton 8.00Leafhopper 🌟 🌟 🌟 (3b) – Out of Dark Angel and Layla Jamil. Won first 2 starts for John Gosden at Newmarket and Catterick before a below par performance at Goodwood on bottomless ground. Can gain compensation here in a very open looking race. Biggest threat to the selection comes in the shape of Last Surprise who has won 2 times and placed 2nd from last 3 starts. Winner

Uttoxeter Racecourse

Final Word with Rich –

I have 2 from Punchestown(Ireland) & 1 from Uttoxeter….

Punchestown (Soft to Heavy) –
12.15 Novice Chase – Grade 2 – 2m 40yds…

Danver Star -Kalanisi x Maggies Oscar 8yo Gelding.
3rd in last years Champion hurdle at Cheltenham started 2020 on October 17th at this course & made his chase debut in a 2m 1f Beginners Chase, winning by 12 lengths.

2.00 Novice Hurdle – 2m 180yds…

Call Me Lyreen – Court Cave x Mooneys Valley 4yo Gelding.
2 wins from 2 starts over hurdles, landed a Tramore 2m Maiden hHurdle by 5 lengths on September 13th & made it 2 from 2 on October 23rd at Sligo in a 2m 1f Hurdle race, winning by 1 & 1/2 lengths.

Uttoxeter – Good to Soft
2.42 Mares’ Novice Chase – Class 3 – 3m….

Carrolls Milan – Milan x Native Crystal 7yo Mare.
Won 3 times in 2019 over hurdles & has now switched to bigger fences.
She made her chase debut at Perth on September 24th in a 2m 4f Class 5 Novice Chase, finishing a 1 & 1/2 length runner up to Not That Fuisse. Up in trip.

A big thanks to Jamie & Chris for their time last weekend on the Breeders Cup weekend & a wee note that tomorrow (Sunday) at 7pm we will be dropping another BIG Interview…..

The Fab 4 are back to try & land some picks over the pond…..

Charlie –

16.20 Motivated Seller – Winner of first 2 starts for Chad Brown and has Irad Ortiz Jr in the irons, beat Prairie Fire by 2 and 1/4 lengths last time out at Belmont Park over 6f and takes step up into a more competitive race this time. Biggest threat comes in the shape of Miss T Too who won at Churchill Downs last time out beating Palomita.


18.18 Complexity –Has 2 wins and a 2nd place from last 3 starts, the wins have came at Belmont Park on the 2nd July when beating Win Win Win by 2 and 1/4 lengths. Was 2nd on next start at Saratoga when Win Win Win gained revenge and beat Complexity by 1/2 length on the 29th August. Returned to Belmont Park on the 3rd October and beat Code of Honor by 2 and 1/4 lengths. If showing up in same mood can go In again, biggest threat comes in the shape of front running Knicks Go who has won last 2 starts.


18.57 Rushing Fall –Has won 6 Grade 1 races, 3 of those were at today’s venue Keeneland, Won a Grade 1 last time out at Saratoga when beating Mean Mary by a neck over 1m 1f. Tackles a further 100y further today and looks the one to beat on all known form. Biggest threat comes in the shape of Mean Mary who Rushing Fall beat last time out at Saratoga.



8:54 – Breeders Cup Distaff –
Selection: Swiss Skydiver 

The biggest head to head at this years Breeders Cup is between Monomoy Girl & Swiss Skydiver. The older horse against the young 3YO. At the prices and 3lbs better off I am going to side with Swiss Skydiver who also has a better draw in the gates. It was a terrific performance to down the Kentucky Derby winner Authentic in the Preakness Stakes five weeks ago. If she runs up to that form then it will take a great deal to get her beat. Swiss Skydiver is battle hardened Filly and from what I have seen and heard, this Filly has been training sweetly in the run up to this race. As long as the Preakness hasn’t left a mark I am hopeful she can get the better of 2018 Champion Monomoy Girl. 

9:33 – Breeders Cup Turf –
Selection: Mogul

This looks to be a very good renewal of this 12F contest that has been won by some superstars down the years. European trained horses do very well in this race and I’m confident they can take it home again with four. The euro charge is lead by Magical, who was runner up in 2018 to the great Enable. She holds strong claims but I am liking the chances of her stablemate, Mogul. Aidan O’Brien has described this son of Galileo as a big gross horse to train. He looks to have turned a corner after easily winning the G1 Grand Prix de Paris back in September, that day he had the Arc second and fourth behind him. I do believe missing the Arc will be a blessing in disguise, while the likes of Magical had to go through the mud at Ascot. His prep has been excellent and I think he has the pace and power to succeed on this track. Big chance. 

10:18 – Breeders Cup Classic –
Selection: Tiz The Law (NAP)

The big finale and my strongest selection this year for any of the dirt races. Tiz The Law comes into this race a fresh horse and he has been training well at Keeneland for nearly the past month. I have to say, after the style in which he won the Belmont Stakes I was a little disappointed he couldn’t follow up in Kentucky Derby. He still ran a great race and it was the fastest Derby since 2001. If he can recapture that Belmont form then he will take some beating here. Gate 2 is perfect for him and he should be able to take up a handy position under Manny Franco. Tiz The Law is my idea of the best 3YO Colt in America and I am hoping he can confirm that rumour here. He will need to take a leap forward though to trouble the older horses in my opinion. 

Chris –

5.39 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint

I kick-off with Leinster in the Turf sprint, who arrives here with 2 wins at Grade 2 level. More importantly both of those were over course and distance; he clearly loves Keeneland and holds every chance of extending the formidable record of the home team in this race. At a much bigger price I like Texas Wedge, I always keep an eye on Peter Miller runners over the sprint races at this meeting and he could make the frame, especially with at least one bookmaker paying 5 places.

7.36 Breeders’ Cup Sprint

You’ll not be surprised to read my selection here; as Peter Miller attempts to add to his wins of 2017 and 2018 in this race with C Z Rocket. This gelding has been in the form of his life in 2020, rattling off a five-timer, including one race over 6.5f at Keeneland where he broke the track record. Seems versatile regarding tactics and gets on well with Luis Saez, I can see a big run for my money.

8.15 Breeders’ Cup Mile

This looks a really good renewal, but I’m siding with last year’s winner Uni trained by Chad Brown. This mare put aside 2 below-par efforts when bouncing back to form here at Grade 1 level in the First Lady Stakes, a race she also won last year on route to the Breeders cup. A wide draw makes things tricky, but she is usually best seen held-up, and will hope for a pace collapse up front as they turn for home.

10.18 Breeders’ Cup Classic

This race seems to revolve around Bob Baffert, as he saddles 3 of the 5 market principles in the Classic. In truth, they are very hard to split, but I’m going with Authentic to add to his Kentucky Derby success. Authentic just failed to reel in Swiss Skydiver in the Preakness, but it was still a very solid run as they put nearly 10 lengths between them and the 3rd. Had he won there I feel his price would have gone considerably shorter today. As it stands he looks an each-way bet to nothing at the current prices, I can’t see him outside the first 4 and shouldn’t be far away up the straight.

Rich –

5.02 Breeders Cup Filly & Mares’ Sprint – Grade 1 – 3yo Plus – 7f….

Gamine comes into the race as Favourite despite finishing 3rdin the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs on September 4th having previously been unbeaten over 7f & 1m. She likes to go from the front as does Serengeti Express, who was beaten by a short head in the Distaff (7f) also at Churchill Downs the day after. It is likely these 2 will take each other on for the lead & leave Distaff winner, BELL’S THE ONE to swoop late….

5.39 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint – Grade 1 – 3yo Plus – 5f 110yds…

BIG RUNNER is 3 from 3 this term having won a Claiming race in May, Stakes race in July & last time out on September 24th landed the Grade 3 Eddie D Stakes beating Wildman Jack by a length.
Got Stormy is a Danger and also a last time out winner of a Grade 3 over C&D, of the British interest, Glass Slippers could run very well & has place claims

6.18 Breeders Cup Big Ass Fans Breeders Cup Mile – Grade 1 – 3yo Plus – 1m

Knicks Go – Paynter x Kosmo’s 4yo GREY Colt
A Breeders Cup winner at 2 years old , who had lost his way a bit in the previous 18 months or so but has changed stables to Brad Cox & has a new lease of life.
He has won his first 2 starts, both Optional Claimers & is 2 from 3 over C&D.
His last start on October 4th was a 10+length romp over C&D.
Playing the GREY NUMBER 5 card!

Well there we have it – The BIG Arse Blog….. Everything covered! A big thanks to the guys for their hard work & to you all for popping by & supporting us through thick & thin….


All the Best – The Arseonlineracing Team

Breeders Cup – Friday

Hello and Welcome to ArseonlineRacing. This website is 100% Independent & has NO affiliate links.
The site is curated 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles, Charlie hails from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight, miles apart but united by our love of racing…

This is the start of a fantastic weekends racing from the UK & over the pond in the USA, Keeneland no less!
With the UK flat season coming to a close, many of our finest horses have been shipped across the world & compete in some of the richest races in the world…

Charlie & Chris will be back for a huge day on Saturday but today Rich is joined by Jamie (aka @Glen_Colt) & we take a look at some of the races as the prelude to Saturdays Breeders Cup Turf & Classic!

Jamie –

8:10 – Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf – 
Selection: Battleground

The Europeans hold a strong hand in the Juvenile Turf with Royal Ascot and Group One victors in the mix and one of them is my pick here, Battleground. Aidan O’Brien’s Colt is by War Front out of 2015 Turf heroine Found, so he certainly boasts a nice pedigree for a Breeders Cup contender. After chalking up an impressive win in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot Battleground cemented his position as one of the top two year olds in Europe by powering to victory in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood. That Group 2 win over 7F was the last time we have seen Battleground in public. An injury ruled him out of Irish Champions Weekend, Aidan decided to give him time and bypassed options at Newmarket & Doncaster to get him ready for this race. He comes into this race fresh which I think is a big plus. Gate 9 isn’t an ideal draw but Ryan should be able to find a midfield slot and hopefully the gaps will appear in the home straight. The trip and ground hold no fears. Battleground holds strong claims to get Europe on the board! 

8:50 – Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies –
Selection: Vequist 

Vequist enters this hot looking Juvenile Fillies on the back of an unlucky second last time out at Belmont. She was caught in a pocket and couldn’t get out in time to trouble the winner Dayoutattheoffice. She proved her class for Grade One level on her previous race in the Spinster Stakes when she bolted in 9 & 1/2 lengths under Luis Saez. Joel Rosario takes over in the saddle today seeking a tenth Breeders Cup winner. The daughter of Kentucky Derby hero Nyquist hasn’t been drawn too badly in gate two and she looks the value against the favourite and well touted Bob Baffert inmate, Princess Noor.

9:30 – Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf –
Selection: Editor at Large (e/w)

A full field of 14 go to post for the Juvenile Fillies Turf. I don’t have an obvious selection for this race so I’m hunting for some value. Editor at Large appeals to me for American turf king Chad Brown and this is his only runner in the race, perhaps a sign of the faith he has in this Filly? We will see. She has some two lengths to make up on Plum Ali from a Grade 2 at Belmont four weeks ago. That was a good effort from a Filly with only one previous run and you can guarantee that Chad Brown will have her firing on all cylinders for this test. Editor at Large is drawn widest of all in gate 14 so she will need a lot of luck. If she gets it though I think she can bag a place here at double figure odds. 

BC Final Word with Rich –

I have 3 races for you to kick off the weekend…

6.50 Alliance Stakes – Grade 2- 3yo Plus – 1m 5f…

Danny California –
Unbeaten in his last 3 starts, with2 wins over 1m 1f (9f) before stepping up to 1m 4f (12f) last time out on September 18th, when landing a stakes race at Belmont by 1 & 3/4 lengths. Up in trip & Grade….

Danger – Ry’s The Guy – A 5 length winner last time out over 1m 4f (12f) at Churchill Downs

8.50 Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies’ – Grade 1 – 2yo Only – 1m 110yds…

DayoutoftheOffice –
Unbeaten 3 from 3 having won a 4 & 1/2 f maiden at Gulfstream in May before landing the Grade 3 Schuylerville 6f Stakes on her 2nd start in July.
Made it 3 from 3 on October 10th at Belmont in the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes (Fillies’), 1m, when beating Vequist by 2 lengths…

10.15 Breeders Cup Juvenile – Grade 1 – 2yo Only – 1m 110yds…

Jackie’s Warrior –
Another unbeaten horse, JW is 4 from 4 and has never been headed. A front runner, who hasn’t seen another horse. A winner of 2 Grade 1 races including the Run Happy stakes in September & on October 10th landed the Champagne Stakes, both over 1m (8f) at Belmont, beating Reinvestment Risk in both Grade 1 races, the latter by 2 lengths.
There is theory that Classier, could go from the front & try and eye ball JW, which would leave them in a duel and if that happens it would allow Reinvestment Risk to come from off the pace & pick up the pieces…

Thanks for popping by folks…. A full squad available to choose from on Saturday, so don’t miss on on a MEGA blog!

Good Luck – Rich & Jamie
