Sunday , yes just Sunday....

Morning all , had steady ol day yesterday some decent figures and % but even now im still making a few errors , i do think i get too emotional involved in some of my races and it has an effect on my trading ability and decision making , oh well......c'est la vie  !!.
Today we have a couple of low grade race meetings ( nh ) and a so so meeting in Ireland ( Punchestown ) , i will not be producing any specific race cards to day but i will highlight races that interest me.

Had a chat with a couple of people this morning regarding the running of certain animals, where they are heading and what the general feeling is etc etc.
Long Run is one such animal we chatted about and the concluded that the main problem is his size , he is of such a slight frame that everything he does requires more effort than most , take the race against Kauto Star yesterday , Long run was always chasing , always racing always hard at work max effort all the way round and that was always going to be a deciding factor, where as KS jumped like a stag and cruised round until the last then finally had to extend slightly ( superb performance ) and the likes of weird al and diamond harry will never be able to compete with world class stars like these , Long run was short on work but will get better , once his fitness has improved along with his jumping he will be back winning that is for sure.
