    Tough day so apologies for that. Few of them were useless but genuinely felt Fishable was extremely unlucky. He broke incredibly slowly and even still was making a serious move a furlong and a half out and was completely blocked, pulled back and couldn't go again. On a positive note, I lumped a really nice amount on Captain Tom Cat 5/2 as couldn't see it losing and it won very well. 
    In some good news, I had an interview this morning and had a call an hour ago to be offered the position. I'm incredibly excited and look forward to my new role in charge of Teaching & Learning at a Specialist Secondary School.

    Back on it (especially for @Barnes1882)
    Tomorrow's race 1540 York
    20 runner handicap with sky paying 7 places if at least 18 run. Hills, Betfair / Paddy Power offering 6 places.
    Top 3 rated:
    Star Shield 9.1 pts my odds 9/1 best price 18/1 @ bet365 but only 12/1 @ skybet
    Fortamour 7.5 pts my odds 11/1 best price 10/1 @ lots
    Boardman 7.4 pts my odds 11/1 best price 13/2 @ bet365 and Hills
    But in addition to these ratings 2 of these have question marks for me.
    Star shield - off 251 days, missing cheekpieces from last win and outside draw.
    Boardman likely favourite but poor value. 2nd to last run wasn't good at all. Up 5lb for win which is the highest mark its won from.
    Based on pts alone my play will be 1/2 pt each way on Star Shield probably looking for 16/1 with the extra places and may even leave to SP.  But my confidence isn't especially high. 
    Outside of the ratings though I fancy 2 others.
    Shawaamekh rated at 6.5 pts - really its last run at Chester should be up rated ( @Wildgarden as per your advice I've been watching replays!). 7f on that tight track means you need to break well - it was plum last after 50 yards and was quite a distance behind going into the straight. It was flying at the end and would have won with an extra 50 yards. Its a CD winner and York is a far more forgiving track. 
    Muntadad rated at 6 pts - getting on a bit at 9 but just too damn well handicappped for me to ignore.
    I won't include these bets for my ongoing ratings but I will be having these tomorrow:
    Shawaamekh at least 1 pt ew best price 7/1 @ bet365 with 13/2 from skybet with 7 places. 
    Muntadab 1/2 pt ew best price 12/1 @ bet365 with 10/1 from skybet with 7 places

    I was confident and it drifted to 5/1. Couldn't believe it! What a lovely winner. 
    Shame about High Definition & Muscika but still a good day so far with the French winner and Winter Power.
    Nye Bevan & Constanta still to race.

    French horse wins and although only evens it's a nice start.
    One more addition (just received some info that the horse is well thought of and is going well on the gallops) but obviously it's the horses first race so need to be cautious. My stakes are around £20 and I've only put £3.75 e/w (£7.50) total on it to give some idea of my smaller stake.
    1915 Newmarket Constanta 22/1 e/w

    I haven't even been backing many of them to be honest but between yourself and @richard-westwoodI have enjoyed reading and seeing seeing you have rated the races. Richard has been quiet so must be busy at work. 
    No need to apologise at all by the way, as I said, just enjoy seeing other people's ratings.
