Irish Grand National

Really fancy one e/w here  MOYHENNA  33/1 1/5 6places BOG (non finisher money back up to £10) Corals

I think that outstanding value for a horse that was 3rd  in the punchestown grand national trail 7l behind the big dog that day 10lb better off  now and also has a 5lb claimer on today ran well enough at cheltenham after that over a shorter trip was making ground at the finish. I see racing post have put theh orse up i'm so surprised at the price if she stays on her feet must surely go very close a cracking  e/w chance imho.

Any old timers here who remember this Easter meeting at Kempton before the track was dug up for AW racing ?

It used to be a big deal ........ the season started with Doncaster, then Kempton, then the Craven and Greenham meetings at Newmarket and Newbury ..... and then the Guineas

Doncaster was a bit of a false start to the Flat because attention turned immediately to the Grand National and there was no significant flat racing for two weeks so by the time Kempton came around it seemed like the proper start of the Flat season

At Kempton we had the Masaka and the Easter Stakes which were mile races for 3 year old fillies and colts and were the first Guineas trials though I don't think any horse in my time would have gone on to win the Guineas ........ they just seemed important because you were raring to go and they came along first. And a couple of big handicaps ........ the Queens Prize and the Rosebery

You'd get your 50p Yankee or L15 on the four big races ...... 

Aah .......... the good old days ........ 😎

Well blimey ........ it's snowing in central London...........

only light flurries ...... but obviously public transport will grind to a halt

And Michael Fish said warm sunshine , tut tut !

Agree about The Lincoln being a little early , strange set up to the start of turf flat .

Good luck to anyone punting at Redcar today , I find backing winners there very difficult !

Two of my selections are non runners today.

I had some fancies Discko Des Plagues, Gleno and Clondaw Rigger at Chepstow but all seem to be at prices are a bit too short without further in depth analysis.  Instead I will have £3.50 to win on Ashutor at 7/2 and a 50p cover bet on Solar Impulse at 15/2.  I am very suspicious when the Sporting press go overboard on the likes of a horse such as Before Midnight; napped by Spotlight, recommended by ATR/Oddschecker and Timeform.

1555 Plumpton

Injured jockey on the ground on landing side of the 1st fence down home straight  not much room to run round  surprised the screens wasnt up first time back round    could it have been stopped race given the location of the jockey?

3.45 Chep Gleno £2 win at 3.8 = £5.49 profit if it wins (Recovery bet only)

 

I got it wrong about Before Midnight; luckily my recovery bet won.  Anyway, no damage done as my net profit was £1.49.  My new balance is £539.63 (Bank £500)

May focus on Exeter tomorrow as there is more stable form over the jumps atm imo
