  1. The Long Shot Thread Midweek Pick

    12:30 Fontwell

    This is not the type of race I'd usually be interested in. However, we currently have the dead 16 runners so the race is very much an each way betting heat even with a short priced favourite in the line up. The one I am going to back each way at a very big price is PRESENTING LUCINA, who has previously hinted at having ability, been around Fontwell before, and simply looks one that might improve markedly now sliding down the handicap. 33's top price, I'm holding out ...

  2. Candy looks sweet in Becher

    Kimberlite Candy to win the Becher.

    A good record first time out. Also potentially very well handicapped. Perhaps the cheekpieces can draw out more improvement too. He was 16/1 yesterday. Now best priced 9/1 as the declarations have been made with Kimberlite Candy carrying 10:4. Get stuck in.

  3. Some Chaos in the Ladbrokes (Hennessey) Trophy Newbury 30 Nov

    Michael Scudamore's SOME CHAOS caught my eye as a second season chaser in waiting. You can forgive and forget the last run in a novice hurdle on heavy ground which was his first start of a long season ahead.

    Last season he did nothing but improve over fences with a strike rate of 4/6 (or 66 percent in percentage terms) in class fours, three's and a class two.

    His form tells me he is probably a 150+ horse in waiting but racing on a mark of 145 and if he made it on the ...

  4. Monsieur D'Arque a dark improver in the Greatwood?

    Connections obviously think he is better than the bare form of his novice hurdle runs on good ground as they wouldn't run him here otherwise. It is his first start this season, perhaps he improved a lot of the summer at home. He is chucked in off a low weight as is the tentative vote each way.

  5. Remastered to master Cheltenham

    The three runs since then, most notably his last performance weren't his true showing but they've kept his rating down for a day like today. I feel he'll love the ground and it could be a case of how far...if he gets into a good rhythm.

    I wouldn't want to back
