Well ...im not Surprised...

As we move into the Bank Holiday Weekend the heavens decide to open!!...its a super long weekend approaching and the rains come ...what a surprise! , Hopefully it will clear up over the weekend but the Forcast doesn't look good....
**Some News**
How very tragic for those 6 Children killed in their house fire ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-18261680 ) and now the parents of the said children have been arrested and charged with murder!!...What sort of person can kill one of their own let alone 6 of them?!....this is shocking and im shocked , they were initially questioned after CSI Locale ( made up ) concluded that the fire started with petrol being poured thru the letterbox....incredible!.....i think the only logical punishment should be life imprisonment on each count ?..thoughts?.
Also noted this morning the Govt wants more help given to Depressed Children stating that children from as young as 18 months are being counselled for depression!!!!..FUCK OFF ! , how the fuck can a 18 month old child have any concept of life let alone depression?!...this is a joke ( had to check it wasnt April 1st )..sick Govt lefties and nanby panby society we live in...sickens me!.
The rest of the news knocking about is mainly superfluous bullshit and not worth a mention...
So we move onto the Racing section with a very positive day yesterday and a profitable one at that and another tasty little 11.9 winner tipped up and the Lucky 31 produced a nice profit of 23.47 Points ( 1 points = £1 staked ) which was mainly due to the deece priced winner but thats the way it goes.
A very steady day with the lay bets was had with all laybets being well beaten and thus applying no stress to my head ;-) and the Icing on the cake Yesterday's NAP Battlecat Won very easily at Nice odds....Very happy was i.




Today we have a superb myriad of racing both day and night so i will be smashing them all day long and i think i will post a Race Card up and it shall be for Tonights SANDOWN fixture with holds the Brigadier Gerard Stakes a race close to my heart and one that set me on my journey into the crazy world of horse racing....i have had the winner of this most years almost as a rite and i feel tonight will be no exception.

*******************SANDOWN******************
RACE 1
BACK - AMOISE - 4th ( Pays top 4 ) @ 10.18
EW - EDGEWATER -
OUTSIDER - MAFI -
*A tough start to the card with a competitive hcap but with so many being or appearing to be AW specialists i have found it reasonably easy to narrow down the field , whether or not i have done it right remains to be seen ;-P , Edgewater is possibly the most interesting as it is now racing off a 10lb lower mark than it last win and is 20 lbs lower from its high point of 84 , this looks weighted to run well and at a decent price, Amoise could be the class and Mafi is consistent enough to warrant ew respect.

RACE 2

BACK - SIR PRANCEALOT - 1st @ 3.21
EW - BAILEYS JUBILEE -
OUTSIDER - STORM MOON -
*A good turnout for the National Stakes sprint but from the 9 i can very easily dismiss 6 of these thus making it a 3 horse race between Storm Moon who won both his starts in good times but may not enjoy these ground conditions although breeding suggests it should be ok.
Then we have Sir Prancealot a horse from the mighty Tinkler ownership whom i have some close contacts with and is another for whom the ground is untried as well as the trip although he travelled very well when winning over 6f fto i dont see this as an issue and this highly thought of sought could be a major player in all this years Juvenile races and is surely Ascot bound??..BUT...
Firstly and more importantly it has to deal with BAILEYS JUBILEE this i have down still as the best 2yr old out yet this season after winning its first 2 races in great fashion ( possibly not beating much ) before running a odd tactical race and getting stuffed i am prepared to fully forget that run as im convinced that wasnt this speedsters true running and this looks a great bet now at 4.7 although i will be personally just lumping on the place at 1.57+.

RACE 3

BACK - OPINION POLL - ( NAP ) - 1st @ 2.37
EW - ZUIDER ZEE -
OUTSIDER - OLD HUNDRED -
*Now we have the marathon tripped Henry II Stakes and this is all about OPINION POLL who at best is different class to these and when only 3/4 on song will be still good enough to deal these a damn good thrashing ;-) .

RACE 4

BACK - CARLTON HOUSE - ( NB ) - 1st @ 2.08
EW - IM A DREAMER -
OUTSIDER - COLUMBIAN -
*THE BIG RACE of the day , the BRIGADIER GERARD STAKES and this really ought to be won by last years train M Stoute who this year sends out CARLTON HOUSE a horse that has been previously and ridiculously over hyped but does have a good deal of ability and i feel this is his ideal trip as i dont feel it truly stays 1m4f , this has the form in the book to put these to the sword and should prove too good for most , Colombian has won over CD but it has to prove as effective on this ground , Hunters Light is disappointing so the main danger should be Im a Dreamer who is a consistently high class performer for whom a big win wont be far away.

RACE 5

BACK - TALES OF GRIMM - 3rd @ 8.26
EW - TOP OFFER -
OUTSIDER - IRISH HISTORY -
*Now we have the Heron Stakes and another decent race with some useful performers and in particular im looking forward to a horse that has long been on my tracker list and that is TALES OF GRIMM a horse with any amount of potential that has missed a couple of engagements due to poor ground and will be ready today and at 7.6 is well worth a little punt EW , others to note are Irish History and Top Offer.

BACK - HIGHLAND COLORI - 1st @ 10.0
EW - TERDAAD -
OUTSIDER - COOL MACAVITY -
