Fri @ Cheltenham ;)


Evening All , no rants today as such although there is again a plethora of material to choose from!! , i will save it up for next week as this weekend is all the Racing with a superb weekend in front of us and its being kicked off with this Great Open Meeting at Cheltenham.
So for the next three days i will cover and will try to nail a few winners and smash a multi.

CHELTENHAM

RACE 1
WIN - FINGAL BAY - 2nd @ 2.74
EW - UNIONISTE -
LONG - N/A -
*This is all about Fingal Bay and has he improved and learned anything from the dogged display in beating Tiger o'Toole?, i would think so and i will say this is in the Top 5 in the UK and IRE at his trip and this is it.
Finagl Bay is all class and should be too good for these although i feel he will have to work for it today as it has some serious competition in the very impressive Unioniste and the place players are no slouches!, good looking race but should be won by the mighty Fingal Bay.

RACE 2

WIN - ASTRACAD -
EW - SILVER ROQUE - 3rd @ 8.31
LONG - ARCTIC BEN -
*A tough looking race in which Astracad looks the safest proposition running well in novices last season and running well 3 times here last season, this is a horse on the up , can carry weight and is not far off group class, he will be winning a few races this season and has a good chance starting here although again he has quite a few tasty looking sorts to see off and dont fully dismiss Oh Crick.

RACE 3

WIN - DODGING BULLETS - 1st @ 2.44
EW - TOMINATOR -
LONG - COURT MINSTREL - 3rd @ 8.88
*This is a glorious looking race full of class, some proven and some with potential , everyone knows i am a big fan of Tominator and i expect this to be winning a couple of big races this season however on this occasion he may have to give way to the superb Dodging Bullets , a wonderful sort with a cracking attitude and any amount of latent ability , a true group horse that can easily mix it with the best around , a horse that will do nothing this season but improve , cracking race awaits but i feel i have the winner here.

RACE 4

WIN - BALTHAZAR KING - 2nd @ 4.30
EW - SIZING AUSTRALIA -
LONG - UNCLE JUNIOR - 1st @ 6.12
*Again we have to focus our attention on the Favourites as they really are streets ahead in terms of natural ability and i dont think there will any shock result in this , the top two are different gravy and i really feel one of these will be winning this, big dutch time i feel ( like most ) .

RACE 5

WIN - TITAN DE SARTI -
EW - TOP WOOD -
LONG - KINGS LODGE -
*This is a very trappy race and i have had word that Kings Lodge is expected to go well in this so i will probably have a punt on that with even money savers on the other two , the yard cant split the pair of TDS and KL and Top Wood is very interesting racing in hcap company for the first time , Small stakes race which will be fun to watch.
