  1. Lets see if Boudot is a bit more animated tomorrow on Western Soldier [2.45 Saint-Cloud] Best odds so far are the 6-1 with Bet 365
  2. David Menuisier has not had a winner this year with his horses looking in need of the run, though worth remembering its the turf when his stock rises at tracks like Sandown/Goodwood/July Course Having said that he was unlucky not to have a winner on Monday, when his colt got hampered at the stalls and at first bend before getting no room in the straight...yet finished well to get 3rd Should pay to follow over further and is totally unexposed when going on the grass Flyin'Solo
  3. like most things these days...they are behind closed doors
  4. Great to see star apprentice Benoit de la Sayette win the big race last Saturday...not so good to see him featuring in a potentially damning video on social media where he attended a party [2019] where cocaine was taken by others Though the kid was not involved in that activity it gave further proof what temptations are around for a young jockey, and if he is to fulfill the role that many say in that he will in the next couple of years become the new stable jockey for John Gosden then he might be wise to watch the company he keeps in his leisure time
  5. Its the first Major this week Yu is 150-1 [7 places] with Betfred
  6. Had a horrible start with a 79, and despite being ten shots better in the second round missed the cut by 1
  7. Fascinating race Can Benoit really get the Fav home on...his first turf ride! Can Eastern World back up that big priced Meydan win? Have to admit am already on at 20-1 for the Appleby horse who did me a big favour that day and fits the profile of a Group rated recent winner Also taken the 25's on another similar type who was also in my "Follow" thread in Man Of The Night and though this trip not ideal has a big pay day in him What about another old friend in Orbaan who owes me nothing after his big priced York win, but has disappointed since. However could not let him
  8. Won easier than the 1/2 length distance Still a big baby and will do better when on the grass
  9. Seasonal debut tomorrow at Dundalk [4.55] Surprised not going on the turf but is up in trip, and will be a warm order with a first show of 6-5
  10. Been watching closely the training career of Donnacha O'Brien who I think as his breeding suggests has a bright future ahead of him Like that unlike his brother Joseph he is not interested in the jumping game or middle of the road handicappers, its all about quality and its telling that he had no runners from November till last week as he nurtures his yet to race 3 year old's especially . Think we can expect some of them to turn out very nicely like the colt Shinsengumi, though I did think his Emporio looked a horse to follow this year after finishing all his three races in 2nd
  11. All ran Okay without success, especially the final bet who was unlucky while the first did not stay but no excuses for the second bet
  12. Good luck today Each way plays on some outsiders in Hong Kong today 11.15-Wonder Express @ 20-1 [4 places] William Hill 11.45-Wind Glider @ 20-1 [4 places] William Hill 1.45-Island Shine @ 33-1 [4 places] Skybet
  13. 140-1 for Yu this week is a bit of value with Bet 365
  14. Weak in the market [3-1] and never got involved after being impeded at the start Boudot had his arms high throughout the race so not much effort today! Horse does need a middle distance and its noticeable that stable unraced 3 year old's are needing their first run this season
  15. 1.20-Haut En Couleurs 1.55-Champagne Gold 2.30-Threeunderthrufive 3.05-Native River 3.40-Stand Up And Fight 4.15-Magic Of Light 4.50-Folcano
  16. Good luck 4.50-Fire Attack Joseph O.Brien has hit the bar a few times at the meeting this week, but the best could be saved to the last Like the jockey booking in this Conditional race of one of his old jockeys Oakley Brown who is now over here Each Way [5 places] @ 14-1 with Paddy Power
  17. Debut is tomorrow at Fontainebleau [1.05] Bet 365 taking no chances with a first show of 15-8
  18. 1.20-Chatham Street Lad 1.55-Come On Teddy 2.30-Mister Fisher 3.05-Fury Road 3.40-Mister Whitaker 4.15-The Glancing Queen 4.50-Morning Vicar
  19. Watson horse won easily but Ridgeway after being backed into favoritism and matching strides with the winner stopped quickly in the straight, so who knows what went wrong there
  20. Seasonal debut is tomorrow at Kempton [5.45] Put in at 7-4...not eased despite big punt on the Watson newcomer from 3-1 into 11-10!
  21. 2.30-Guard Your Dreams 3.05-First Flow 3.40-Out Sam 4.15-Us And Them 4.50-Grangee
  22. 1.20-Blue Lord 1.55-Shishkin 2.30-Alnadam 3.05-Sharjah 3.40-Great White Shark 4.15-Nassalam 4.50-Soldier Of Love
  23. yes you are probably correct, be interested to see the horse on turf next
  24. Well the money came...and again disappointed No blame on the jockey today, got the horse in a good position early though did not see much daylight in last half furlong Shaped like a step up in trip would be of benefit, and then we might see what his backers think the horse is capable of!
