We are at Home!!...

Yes Indeed Today we have the first meeting of the new season at my Home Track YORK , a beautiful town with a superb race couse and facilities ( even if the Gimcrack is a tad dear ! ) i love the place and it holds some of best trials and group races of the Year along with some high profile Hcaps and Sprints...superb stuff.
One piece of advice for York , look out for good front runners as York is not the best place to be coming " off the pace ".
Todays main race looks to be the Musidora and  i feel that the Fav TWIRL will take all the beating , 2nd to Chrysanthemum on reappearance she ran as tho the step up in trip would do her good and should be nice and fit now , Esentepe has no chance what so ever at this trip and should be laid for every penny you can muster!.

Here is the Card in Full.....

**************************YORK*****************************

RACE 1
BACK - AREA FIFTY ONE -
EW - LABARINTO -
OUTSIDER - GATEWOOD - 1st @ 7.45
*On my speed ratings there is nothing to split the top 6  and the current Fav Flag Officer has to be a LAY with so many against him , the 3 selections are matched to cross the line as one so will be very interesting.

RACE 4

BACK - MAYSON -
EW - BANNOCK - ( 80.0 ) -
OUTSIDER - BOGART - ( 55.0 ) -
*A very tough sprint with some very useful looking sorts on show most Notably would be Hoof It who if fully wound up for this would and will take all the beating , can travel at pace /quicken and run on over both 5f and 6f and will be a major player in all this years big sprints , however i feel at 3.25 it is worth taking on against such strong opposition , its not to say i dont think it can win as i think if fully fit and with a form carry it can i just think that first time out in a strong field its worth taking on.
**HOOF IT - UNPLACED
