    Though had couple of nice winners today, this is the one that got away as should have won the race with comfort.

    Put the horse up @ 7-2 this morning and it went off a well backed 9-4 favourite. Everything was looking cosy in first half of the race as the gelding travelled nicely in midfield.

    However when the pace quickened half a mile out and without any reason and little effort from his rider the horse suddenly lost his position and was back in last place. Looked to me in greyhound terms that he got slightly "crowded".

    His young jockey then switched him to the outside before quickly deciding to go back in. Wrong decision!

    As eventual winner come down the outside while my bet met the inevitable congestion up the middle in the straight surrounded by horses.

    Did run on well to get 2nd but race was lost and jockey knew it and only gave the horse a couple slaps of the whip. Hopefully the handicapper won't punish the horse for this unlucky run as I think he is not badly handicapped and should win a staying race pretty soon.
    Had two runs now, and no real show

    Tonight [7.15 Windsor] however he is on the turf where the horse is relatively still unexposed.

    Had a small each way play last night at 12-1...and just noticed he is now 6-1!

    Al Hajar

    Watching the Godolphin newcomer Morlock winning nicely on his debut at Kempton tonight, reminded me of the above colt who has left those who know what is what at the Charlie Appleby shell shocked that he has not won both of his races this season.

    Think he needs stepping up to a mile though, so could be interesting this autumn

    Would be nice if all 4-11 favourites won like he did today

    Think this colt now he has got the job done is still a horse to follow

    A lot I think!

    That was impressive, and landing a big punt.

    Interesting to hear the trainer saying afterwards that he wont be risked on fast ground, but could get a mile next season.

    Is a horse to be quite excited about for 2018

    Gardefort

    Trained by Venetia Williams

    Thought he had an outstanding chance in the £100,000 handicap at Ascot tomorrow, but has been pulled out [not sure why]

    Has a big race in him, so worth keeping an eye out for

    Long House Hall

    Watching his stablemate Oldgrangewood win a decent handicap at Newbury today prompted me to think of this classy horse.

    He needs good ground, so probably wont be effective till the spring. But do think he will win a decent chase this season for Dan Skelton

    Nicky Henderson really likes 0 0 Seven and thinks this will be his year. Obvious target is Aintree and after his run yesterday all systems are go

    Makes his seasonal debut tomorrow in a very hot race [1.55 Cheltenham]

    Hasn't got his ground, so only a small play each way @ 14-1 [Betfair Sports] 4 places

    Iíve been a huge fan of this horse since he won at Market Rasen in April 2015

    We havenít seen him since he hacked up in last yearís Summer Plate at the same venue and Iíd have some doubts that heíll retain that ability as a near 10yo

    I think heíll struggle on the ground tomorrow
