    Noted in running - Flat 2022

    Stormy Ocean - Odds-on, btn 3/4l at Wolves tonight, ran very fresh. The writing was on the wall as he spurned the chance to run in a 50k contest at Chelmsford on Thursday.
    He's better than he showed here, and worth watching for, nto.

    Looking back to the Lincoln, Rogue Bear ran an extraordinary race to finish 3rd. Slow away, and out the back with 3 to run, he finished with a real rattle to be the only high drawn horse in the first 6. Something like the Newbury Spring Cup, often a Lincoln consolation, looks tailor-made for him, particularly if it's on kinder ground than Donny.

    Makeen, 4:25 Leicester - last at 2f out he came through only to have the gate shut in his face with 1/2f to go, lost a bit of momentum and switched. Finished 4th (best of those from off the pace) and would have been much closer with a clear run.

    In the Spring Cup on Saturday. He went into my tracker also after the Lincoln but the problem is that race is so high profile it's difficult to get a price the next outing. The exception to this is if you can somehow get a Gosden/Frankie entrant to sweeten said odds. Bingo - 6/1 perfectly acceptable. Off the same mark also.

    Cooperation Finished 4th at Windsor today. Drawn 1, and found his passage blocked for much of the race. Given one slap when in the clear, and not persevered with.
    Entered Thurs in a much better race, but hopefuly won't run.

    INTELLOGENT 14/4 Newmarket 3:00

    Held up. Didn’t get a clear run,baulked and lost momentum just when starting to move up. Did well to come through from there into second.

    “Approximately 1 furlongs out, WONDER ELMOSSMAN (IRE), unplaced, shifted quickly left away from the whip causing the rider of INTELLOGENT (IRE), placed second, to take a check but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved.”

    Nomadic Empire 23/4 Ripon Silver Sprint Trophy Handicap 5f, Class 2,

    Bumped at start, raced at back, last off the bit, but having nowhere to go until inside final furlong from where he finished best of all into third from near last. Looked a really unlucky loser.

    I fancied Boardman until I checked the trainer's record this season. No great shakes (now there's a name for a horse) so a fair chance that he'll step up considerably. The trainer might also just be starting to hit some kind of form.

    The opener at Haydock yesterday was interesting. Highland Frolic finished best after losing a couple of lengths at the start in a fairly slowly run race. This was his first ever run and he was in the blinkers for Gosden. Obviously needs to grow up a bit but maybe one to keep an eye on.

    Had the wunderkind Benoit dlS up, too - perhaps they had better than third in mind.

    Just my opinion, but the way he was dropped in - off a funereal pace and wearing first-time blinds - suggest it was educational, rather than a serious attempt at the prize. Cost fortune as a yearling, sotinpot 8k raced aen' likely to be on the agenda, imo, of course.

    Newmarket, 12 April, 10f 3yo handicap - This is the race I put on the new thread but I'd like to single out third-placed Israr for special mention.

    The race comment says:

    "... ran a promising race on this seasonal reappearance considering he looked burly enough in the paddock and didn't appear at all in love with the Dip. Out of Oaks and King George heroine Taghrooda, he looks set to relish 1m4f and can leave this behind."


    The handicapper has left his mark [89] alone and the chances are that this is Group horse down the line. He might be very interesting if he can get into the King George V handicap at the royal meeting off this kind of mark.

    I liked Definitive Force at Donny on Saturday. He lost a couple leaving the stalls and still won going away. Now, initially I wasn't gonna track him because he'd been running on the AW and is handled by a trainer I've not heard of but a bit of digging seems to suggest that Alice Haynes might be an up and comer and tbf he was gelded after his last run on the sand.

    Marbuzet in the 5.45 Wetherby yesterday.

    I wrote him up before the race thus:


    Trip-wise it's into the unknown but there's staying blood on the dam side. I originally thought that sire Farhh doesn't get stayers but I was wrong there; there are progeny that have won over this distance.

    I've looked at his final run last season at Nott and he ran a stout race, staying on. He's been gelded since and he looks nicely tucked away down the weights there. The trainer is not averse to scoring early - season in this sort of race


    Well, over the 1m6f , he was ridden patiently but then closed up ominously ready to come and make his challenge. Unfortunately he met trouble on a couple of occasions after and was out f the money. Has gone down in my trackers.

    RUMSTAR Windsor 5:25. 33/1 last night, opened 16/1 today, sp 10/1.

    Jonathan Portman pre-race comments:
    Rumstar is only little but he has shown a degree of professionalism in work at home and looks ready for an outing. He is sure to come on for the run as my two-year-old runners tend to but we do like him. His mother was tough and fast and his sire has had a good start.


    In the race itself RUMSTAR was slowly away, raced mid-field from half way looking easy, but with not much space in front of him. Responded well when Probert put his foot down before the final furlong, finishing like a train, but just unable to get there by a head.

    Thanks BJ; nb: it wasn't a strong pace, and though he looks a certain winner in the near future, I wouldn't bet him unless, over a sharp 5, and on similar gound.
    JMO, mind
