Finally ...Some Light Shines Thru...

Well Morning One n All , its been a tough ol' week , starting to slowly rise for the gloom and as i do the mind starts to work with some clarification and purpose , i think going to Spain to see my Ma' is going to help ( or maybe the 80° Sun ) either way hopefully im thru the toughest part.
Im quite glad i got the Broadband installed at my Ma's now as i think its going to be quite useful ;-) , haven't decided how long im going to stay for yet , maybe a week ? , maybe 2 months ?...
As the rains ( in some areas ) finally withdraw for a bit ( more on way tho' ) we may get a full card in today although i think i may give P'town a miss after seeing this race yesterday....^^^

So what shall we look at today ? , well i think the mixed card at Sandown is very much a go as i feel this is one of the hardest Tracks to run in the UK , why ? , well because of the final bend and long run in i feel this course sorts the wheat from the chaff and if your good enough you will win , there should never be any hard luck stories here and it is a course i hold dear as many moons ago during their late summer evening card they hold the Brigadier Gerard Stakes and that was an occasion when i won an amazing amount ( for me at the time anyway ) and as such has always burned brightly within...So today we shall again roll on with Sandown...

RACE 1
BACK - SADDLERS RISK - 2nd @ 9.51
EW - LEXIS BOY - 1st @ 13.5
OUTSIDER - SONGSMITH -
*Saddlers Risk has shown he is not quite Class 1 but he is only a smidge below that level and a fair bit better than most if not all Class 2's....Saddlers deserves a change of fortunes after putting in some spirited performances in the bigger races and against the very best , there are no Grumeti's in this race and i simply cannot believe the price @ 7.6 !!...MAX WIN ( with place lay cover ) , this i feel will either demolish these hard on the steel or Pull Up if things dont pan out, i dont see this as an EW bet as imo it either wins or totally fails.
*Hmmm...Did ok in the race after trading out Saddlers @ 3.0 , lost on the Place Lay but won well with Lexi's Boy...Good Start.

RACE 2

BACK - TOUR D'ARGENT - ( Stablemate Won!...More rubbish Inf from Hendo Jnr lol )...
EW - BIG EASY - 4th @ 12.7
OUTSIDER - HELLFIRE CLUB - ( Went off @ 42.0 , ran really well hitting 6.40 before weakening at the end, good trade )
*IDK is convinced there is a big win to come from Hellfire Club so im gonna have to stick with it and try again even @ 38.0.....another EW punt , i will also be dutching the top two to try and make a profit if the inevitable happens...*Again Did ok , made a small profit thru trading and got some decent runs from the selections )

RACE 3

BACK - FRENCH OPERA -
EW - SOMERSBY - 2nd @ 3.85
OUTSIDER - N/A -
*WISHFUL THINKING has to be my LOTD  , such an inconsistent sort whose recent run reads better than it looked , still a shade high at 4.4 for me to really get stuck in , i will instead be monitoring the markets and will probably end up having an in running LAY set at 3.0 / 2.92 ...i may end yet having this as a BTL ..time will tell...IF French Opera can sort its jumping out it will be game over for the rest..but its a weighty IF?!.* Wishful Thinking was UNPLACED.

RACE 4

BACK - ALDERTUNE -
EW - WEST END ROCKER -
OUTSIDER - DEEP PURPLE -
*Tough race and again we would like to see a half decent run from Free World but @ 170.0 i think maybe even thats a big ask , maybe a trade , yeah may have a nibble " just in case " , West end Rocker was my National Pick but fell at the start so i will be hoping this is his compensation race and Aldertune is due a nice win and rarely runs a poor race.

RACE 5

BACK - POET -
EW - TWICE OVER -
OUTSIDER - WORLD DOMINATION -
*I would love to see World Domination win and win well but i feel that after its amazing Maiden win it has nothing left , then again it has been racing against the best so maybe a break and a rest have done it good , lets hope so, twice over ran its usual game, gutsy  race lto and is sure to be there but im hoping a big run from the mudlark Poet can see him get the win he is entitled to , his form over CD when 2nd in the Brigadier Gerard Stakes to Workforce gives him every chance.
