    Dubawi lost his Guineas to an inferior horse because the ground was like a road. I had futile hopes of taking on his son in the hope underfoot conditions might be similar this year. Fat chance.

    The Abernant looks a nice ew race. I'm chancing Yafta who had some nice pieces of form last year. The Hackwood he won worked out ok.

    Breath Of Air 1.05 , can be forgiven his last run on account of his inexperince in what was only his 3rd racecourse appearance and, though poorly drawn, the market hasn't missed his fairly obvious chance. His trainer (and both sides of his pedigree) indicate he'll probably improve again for today's faster ground and (imo) he looks a very well-handicapped horse. Might pay the value seekers to put him in a f/c to beat Moyassar which pays c14/1 as I write.
    The Craven looks good for Royal Marine which Soumillon indicated only ran in Meydan for a warm-up, and already a gp1 winner, he ought to take this comfortably. Encouraging that CS again travels for the ride.
    Another shortie but, as my old boss was fond of saying " You can only pee with the c*ck you've got''.

    I hope I haven't goofed (again) in the Abernant. I got stuck into Gifted Master yesterday evening as he's clear top rated on my figures and if Tommy Taylor's no-show yesterday is an indicator of the form of the Ryan yard Brando has to be opposed although I don't think that's the case myself. But now I'm worried about GM following the trainer's comments in his Weekender stable tour today:

    ...if he runs well he could remain in Group races, but he's already 1lb lower than when winning the Stewards' Cup and the Wokingham would be an ideal race...
    Another few pounds down the weights would make him a good thing at Ascot.

    Newmarket 5:20. Self Assessment. He's been castrated, and it can make all the difference. Two each way singles & and an each way double.

    I've had a small ante post on Royal Marine at 100 on Matchbook for the 2000 Guineas, so hoping for a good showing from him today.

    4s into 11/4 -that was some anti climax.

    I've only just caught up with the replays. What an awful day's racing (unless anyone backed a good winner), the only real highlight being old Tobefair winning at Cheltenham.

    As I feared, Gifted Master was just there to stretch his legs but I'm a wee bit annoyed for not seeing for myself that the Wokingham or Stewards' Cup made more sense, being so much more valuable than today's race.

    There was some truly dreadful jockeyship on show at both Nwm and Chl and no shortage of very hard-luck stories.

    Difficult to see where the pace comes from in the 1m h'cap (3.35) and the 2 Lincoln placers are surely going to struggle in this small field, and Thrave and Exhort look to need further.
    Jim Crowley ought to be able to boss his own pace on Sawwaah, and looks the bet of the meeting to these eyes.
    Took the 4/1 last night, with the bonus of a fairly safe rfc with Power Of Darkness.

    Heavens above an capall makes me feel young - I last backed the winner of the Free Handicap when I was too young to bet and my Dad put 5 on Match Winner ridden by Piggott for Cecil and Wildenstein.
