  1. Tocco D'Amore winning the last at Naas couldn't have been more impressive. Going around Diodorus and Lightning Fast cost her a ton of gorund but she's still hacked up as easy as you like.
  2. Naas Preview I like the Bolger newcomer Moltoir in the first who might be more forward than his rivals. In the 2.55 I think An Saighduir could outrun his odds off 93 after running well in a British sprint handicap off 98 at the end of last season which are usually stronger races than what we have over here. He was poor on his reappearance but traveled with plenty of zest before weakening at the finish to be well beaten. Declan McDonagh was easy on him at the end though and given he came on a ton for the run last year maybe at 10 years of age he needs the outing to put him straight so I'll
  3. 4.40 Naas - Bold Thady Quill @ 14/1 BetVictor
  4. In the Grand National I might as well have a few with 365 considering they give you half your stake back. Generally looking for a horse that attacks their fences and looks to relish jumping as they're the ones who are likely to take to the test. Rogue Angel fits the bill and stays so that's one. Highland Lodge also looks a good bet for the same reasons. The other two I like are not definite stayers but Double Shuffle is a fine jumper and has improved with increasing tests of stamina this season. If anything he looks like he could do with further after staying last time at Kempton after blunder
  5. Very testing at Cork as usual this time of year but a few I think should go well. Gymkhana did me a big favour last week at Naas and I see no reason why he can't follow up today in Listed company. He loves this ground and is still very unexposed. Downforce will probably come on for the run while Great Minds is inconsistent and obviously fragile but has talent if he can put it all together. Wouldn't trust him at the prices however. Only Mine has also run to a high level but I just think she might have been flattered when beating Washington DC. It's wise to stick with the Lyons newcomers in
  6. Over at Doncaster in the 5.05 there is a very competitive 3 year old handicap. Khalidi is probably a bit short given its competitive nature and the Godolphin horses are likely to need the run so down at a nice double figure price I expect Mushaireb to run well. An expensive purchase for Al Shaqab Racing, he won first time up at Newcastle when deservedly being handed the race. He picked up again nicely after losing significant momentum and looks to have a promising future. Given he's trained by Fahey he should be race fit and at 11/1 on Bet365 he looks worth a bet. 5.05 Doncaster - Mushair

  8. Take To Heart should go well for Henderson in the first at Ascot. Ignored by Nico De Boinville for a more experienced type but well bred and should be ready to go. Looks like a good bet at 11/1 in numerous places.
  9. Doncaster Preview - Lincoln Meeting I'm all over the Fahey horses tomorrow to be honest. As I mentioned in the Lincoln thread, in March and April he has 1.25 actual winners to expected at a 17% strike rate over the last 9 seasons. In the Cammidge Birchwood should be suited going down in trip and has the best form running well up to Group 1 level. Absolutely So will probably need the run and Mobsta likes really soft ground which he won't get at a drying Doncaster. Next in the Spring Mile, Another Touch still looks progressive just going 4 years old after some decent efforts last season. Ni
  10. Your 33/1 on Dolphin Vista looks fantastic @richard-westwood. I quite fancy him myself at the current prices with 14/1 available on Betfred and a generous 5 places. Dolphin Vista is still relatively lightly raced and has been gelded over the winter so is very much open to improvement. Fahey reports him working really well and the fact he's the choice of Paul Hanagan backs this up. Fahey boasts a fine record in the months of March and April with an A/E winners of 1.25 and a healthy strike rate of 17% so I wouldn't be worried about backing his first time up this season.
  11. Some fantastic pictures there @robertob
  12. Nice to get a winner on the board with Gymkhana who traveled well and put the race to bed well. Although the facilities are very much outdated it's a very nice course with a fantastic view from the stands. The horses come up the straight really close to the stand and there was a good crowd and atmosphere to the place today. Hopefully will get back to Naas soon. Don't know about the times or the form but those O'Brien maiden winners were hugely impressive visually.
  13. Naas Preview - Lincoln Meeting First two races I can't see an angle in so I'm happy just to watch. The first handicap of the year is interesting which takes place on the straight 6f course. Gymkhana is very interesting on debut for Ger Lyons. A winner in France this lightly raced type looks a sure improver and his trainer usually has them ready first time out. He's worth an interest but bet of the race is Dinkum Diamond who is first time out for Andy Slattery. He's ran well in parts off this mark and the fact he comes to a trainer who has such a good record improving horses is a big posit
  14. 3.30 Meydan - Dubai Turf In the Dubai Turf I can't believe Zarak is so short because on form he hasn't done much at all. He always seems underpriced because of his pedigree but if you look at his form he has a bit to find with Ribchester and Mutakayyef. Ribchester will cope fine with the step up in trip but at a bigger price I like the latter of the pair. Mutakayyef's run in the Juddmonte International looks really good especially as he was caught too far back off a steady enough pace and also met trouble in running. He then went to Canada and finished in a good third place behind the hig

  18. @Trotter Possibly that leaves too little time until the Classics? For example we had Derby 2nd US Army Ranger debut in April last year.
  19. I love Cheltenham but it has a negative effect on the National Hunt Calendar. Just look at the Betfair Hurdle and Imperial Cup entries compared to the County Hurdle at the festival. Mullins campaigned Douvan around festival and gambled on him running to form there which backfired. He should have been running in races like the Clarence House or Tingle Creek. It's a breadth of fresh air to see Tizzard campaigning horses so boldly and if he didn't Thistlecrack would just be an exciting novice chaser not down in history as a King George winner. I like both codes but for betting I prefer the f
  20. Just noticed the Irish Lincoln is next weekend. With all the buzz around the horse racing world with Cheltenham you forget the flat season is about to begin. The Irish Lincoln takes place at Naas this year with the Curragh being redeveloped. It's nice that some of the smaller tracks are getting a spread of the better races because if we're ever going to get people really excited about flat racing in Ireland it needs to be made more accessible. The Curragh is just too awkward to get to and dominates the pattern calendar. Unfortunately we have the ridiculous situation that the Irish De
