    Don't really do the flat but Dettori was masterful today, especially in the last.

    Jessica Harrington has a couple going tomorrow. One, Brother Bear, ran well in the Coventry but decided to go ‘left hand down a bit’ and gave the race away. LTO was a much more mature performance. He clearly did well in his prep but a drifting price worries me somewhat. The other, Servalan, won very well and easily LTO ,on only her second run, coming through very quickly from the back to take a 38k prize. Given her SP of 10/1 she was unlikely to have been expected on the day but the money is there now.
    I backed the Bear once the target was confirmed, singly, in a double with Alpha Centauri and in various multiples with the two being being anchor bets. The price drift means hope rather than anticipation.

    I'll be pleasantly surprised if the clown of the course gets the watering right. I expect he'll over-water the middle and far side to attempt to address a possible disadvantage to the nearside. We'll maybe know more after the first race.

    From my blogski...

    "Blue De Vega is the bet of the week in The Wokingham Handicap on Saturday.

    This is a classy horse who was a group winner in Ireland, recently 4th in The Epsom Dash, when staying on, so the step up to six furlongs is the right move. I feel the faster the pace, the better the race, the better this horse will be. Major each way player at 16/1. My bet of the week. Good luck"

    Geez, that Hunt Cup winner fairly pished up. I had it as an improver but didn't think it had that kind of run in it.

    As I feared, the CoC has fvcked up the going. Both flanks of the track beaten some way out.

    Good day yesterday. Have very nice possies on Invincible Army (double with Poet's Word) and Sioux Nation (ap) and am protecting by putting Equilateral in doubles with OOSG and Crystal Ocean. Have also got Vazirabad each way. Not sure Stradivarios will stay. Also backed Konchek in the Norfolk.

    Ceilidhs Dream could be a hell of a good filly for a big handicap like the Sandringham tomorrow.

    She won an excellent maiden at Newmarket which has worked out, beating Sea Of Class who is now rated 107 after winning two valuable listed races.

    Ceilidhs Dream starts off in handicap company on a mark of 90.

    She's almost could be as well handicapped as Blue De Vega on Saturday! Definitely my nb.

    I hadn't read this until now but had backed Ceilidhs Dream e/w @ 16s earlier this morning so fingers crossed Martin.
