  1. Racing Chat - Thursday Feb 22nd

    9:00 Chelmsford SCRIBNER CREEK 5/1 PP WH Bet365 Disqualified for running in wrong race but ran ok in that race. Ran better in a higher class race race 2 days ago and was running on when run out of room. Still 1lb lower than last winning mark and could go well at this track CD winner

    2.45 Lingfield ARQUEBUSIER 15/8 WH Ladbroke. steps down in class today and although probably needs a bit further this ground should bring his stamina into play. He does not mind this ground either. He ran well last time at Chepstow

    well done all today.

    3:15 Haydock pretty much same thoughts as everyone else. These two are well ahead on figures. BLAKLION 5/2 Coral Ladbroke THE DUTCHMAN 9/2 General on Racing Post Blaklion runs here as his intended target on route to the National where he must have a very solid chance. The Dutchman comes here with a 13lb hike for his last success and was heading to Newcastle next week for the Eider over 4M this race looks more suitable in terms of weight. He had a wind op before joining Colin Tizzard and had 2 runs over Hurdles before showing great improvement back over fences. I think this race looks right up his street. It should be a fascinating race whatever the outcome. Dont have a lot of luck with F/C R/F/C ect so i am out. Would not put anyone off having a go, Bet looks reasonable enough.

    1:55 Kelso McGowan Pass 2/1 Bet 365 Likeable sort on this sort of ground, he can go well again after been outclassed in Grade 2 last time at Haydock. 3:00 Kelso Big River 15/8 PP Probably got a bit to do in this race and has suffered from a fibrillating heart, but he goes really well at this track 1, 1, 2, 1, 1 and was staying on well last time at Warwick closing on the 2nd near the finish. Likes this ground and a good run look likely.

    2:25 Newbury. NATIVE RIVER 1/1 Bet365 WH Still has his best days ahead of him. He won this race last year and had a excellent season finishing 3rd in Gold Cup. Got a ligament injury in that race and opens his season today with the Target of the Gold Cup again. Gives Saphir du Rheu 6lb today but I think at even money 3 horse race I got to have a go. If the campaign towards the Gold Cup is a serious one. He must brush these aside today.

    7:00 Dundalk RED AVENGER 10/3 Bet365 Red Avenger runs off the same mark here as last time, running second to a progressive horse last time. He won 3 on the bounce last winter, but looks a tricky sort who missed two engagements due to been lame. However if his problems have been sorted and he turns up in the same form as 2 week ago. He should run a big race.

    2:10 Ludlow TREE OF LIBERTY 13/8 Coral Ladbroke. Arkle entry who should run well in this event. C/D Winner here time before running 2nd to a useful sort at Newbury last time.

    3:05 Lingfield PETITE JACK 15/2 Bet365 Gave this one out at the beginning of December to turn over Toast of New York after coming out of retirement. He ran a good race and improved next time to get on top in a listed event. (Not on it) 2nd chance. He had a very good season in 2017 and although suited by further he is enjoying this trip. He is a bit of a character and needs to come late, but Luke Morris try different tactics last time and it worked well. They now say all roads lead to Good Friday 2nd Chance watching Brief 0/4 (think i will scrap this on here and just do paper watching) ATHASSAL Kempton 7:45 16/1 General Did not take to Fibresand last time and drops a further 2lb and is a course winner here

    3:30 Catterick SAME CIRCUS 9/4 Coral Ladbroke Same Circus steps back from Listed Class at Doncaster last time over 2m 4f. Better over further, She was outpaced in that race but kept on. C/D Winner last Feb over hurdles she has run to that level over chases this season. She has headgear on today to try and iron out a few issues. She should go close.

    1:55 Chelmsford BUCKLAND BEAU 11/2 Bet365 2nd Chance now 0/3 No quote given due to work. He was caught near finish and should run well again. Run Sunday 21st Jan

    1:15 Punchestown ROUTES CHOICE 9/2 Bet365 Betway Coral Routes Choice has been improving of late and must have a chance in this race. She won in heavy ground at Sligo in September and both 2nd was in deep ground. Trainer in good form and she should go close here.
