A Positive Mental Attitude is what is required as we try to recover from Goodwood, which was by no menas all bad, but actually lleft me physically drained. I spent yesterday with an eye-guy who confirmed that surgery is needed, if I am to avoid picking the wrong numbers off racecards when predicting £250+ winning Exactas!
Today I suggest the following:
2:00 Catterick: MAGNA MAGNOLIA ran very green in his first race, but had patently got the message in the way he finished. Anything over 6/1 would be a working man’s price.
4:10 Catterick: LET’S GO FLO has had two quick runs this season after a year-long absence but caught the eye last time out when making useful headway from 2f out to go down by 3¼l. The handicapper took another 2lbs off her
4:25 Newbury: WAFY looked as though the gelding operation had delivered some improvement when 4½l 2nd at Ascot. There is some pace today which will make it a decent mile test and the yard has high hopes.
5:25 Nottingham: Tom Dascombe might have underestimated SIR BORIS‘ abilities, as I for one am surprised to see him here rather than entered for a decent C3 elsewhere. His 6l victory LTO, admitedly on Soft ground, suggested there was a lot more to come and the only question is going to be whether he needs cut.
6:05 Newbury: Ed Walker’s JACK D’OR went into the notebook back in June when looking every inch a decent 10f horse. That opinion peristsed LTO when he made his AWT and Handicap debut at Kempton over 1m. 8/1 or better and e/w.
