Late start for me today as ive spent the last couple of hours speaking with investors etc and mulling over a prospective move back to Australia....
On the racing front we have 3 very cold but quite competitive cards to choose from , the bets are thin today as i only have 2 niche races to look at but i will top that up with my nap of the day OPEN HEARTED, so here are todays 3 races...


Folkestone 13:50 
JJ Taxis Folkestone Novices' Hurdle
£4000.00 added, 4yo plus, 2m 6f 110y, Class 4

..This is the race that holds todays NAP which is OPEN HEARTED , i have been reliably informed that this will get the 2m6f trip no problem , its jumping wont be stretched as the dirge of opposition is such that it really should reach the last and win in a canter...

1Open Hearted11-13A TinklerN J Henderson54/6 f
21Likeable Rogue (IRE)11-6D A JacobP F Nicholls611/2
310Knight Flight10-13A ThorntonMiss A M Newton-Smith77/1



Taunton 16:40 
DBS/EBF Mares' Standard Open NH Flat Race (Qualifier)
£3500.00 added, 4-7yo, 2m 1f, Class 5

..A trickier race as there are a couple of stoutly bred sorts from the Henderson/Lavelle yards both of which should turn out to be fairly decent , however word for these is not strong , not strong enough to tip anyhow so i am going for GOWITHDFLO  , this bay mare is another Fleminsfirth prodigality and they are scoring quite well in the NH scene ( winner of yesterdays NHF race ) already has some rock solid form winning fto by 13L , will like the ground ( unknown quantity of a jockey ) and ticks most boxes , this is g'teed to stay and as such i will be having a MAX PLACE bet on this.


1The Wee Lass11-2Nick ScholfieldA J Whiting566/1
2¾Chilworth Screamer10-5T J O'BrienC Gordon428/1
3Gowithdflo (IRE)11-9Miss J C Williams (7)P G Murphy55/1



Southwell 15:00 
Bet Blue Square On Your Mobile Maiden Stakes
£3500.00 added, 3-4yo, 1m, Class 5

.. A very poor race and one that is very hard to get an exact angle on , with the opposition being so poor i am going with HENRY GEORGE , ran poor fto but as with most MJ runners should improve now stepped in distance and with an outing under its belt , looks the most likely to improve and being out of Zamindar one hopes its class will shine , i will be backing this in the win market and Place laying as cover as i think it will either win or do nothing...
