Thursday @ Meydan

Hi Boys n Girls , 
                         Not much happening today as the snow has taken a grip and what racing we do have is very poor so its another Thursday at Meydan for me and i will cast a cursory glance over the cards to see if we have anything worth getting involved with.
A lot of the UK AW specialists are over here having picked up some nice looking rides but the form is dreadfully hard to work and with a mix of nonsensical , irrelevant and woeful form lines and ratings there is much guessing going on however you can give yourself a chance if you cut a lot of wheat from the chaff.

Opening up we see what looks to be a rather spirited and competitive race with not a lot to choose between them however after a break of 180+ days i will give another chance to the former useful ARTIGIANO who is officially rated 110 which puts him some way clear yet has been rather disappointing since his juvenile days where he twice ran the classy Olympic Glory very close and even after that was only narrowly touched off in some decent races in fact although he never got really competitive in the Royal Hunt Cup ( 7th ) he was still only beaten 5L or so so much can be taken from these and at around 6/1 is a good solid sporting bet in a wide open event , if he can roll back the years then he will win but in truth..who really knows...??...pays yer money n takes yer chance. - 3rd @ 9/2

A terrific looking sprint race is next up and i like the look of last years runner up AHTOUG who will strip fitter now and could have the edge on a few of these but this is another very tight race with Medicean Man , Fityaan and Speed Hawk making this ultra competitive. - 1st @ 5/1

The next race offers little for me and a speculative token selection would be ALAREEF who like many from De Kock needed its first run and will be much straighter this time. - Unplaced ( Nice winner for R Hughes )

Another odd looking race but i will have an EW on WEE JEAN as its one of those i will follow off a cliff lol...until it Wins again then stop. - Unplaced ..Again lol....

and again....its another hard to call race but ANOTHER PARTY from the Jamie Osborne yard is worth a few quid as its lto form has been working out well and this could run a decent race although the 5/1 is a bit tight for my liking but a small EW investment or to have it doubled up could reap rewards. - Unplaced

Much better race this time and this looks a straight fight out between TRUE STORY and VERCINGETORIX , now True Story has had a run and is on the upgrade still and like the other is a CD winner and will prove very hard to beat however Verci' has some rock solid form not only round here but around the world and if fit could be a few pounds superior , this has run well fresh so that shouldnt be a problem , loves the trip n the surface and is imo the most likely winner but it will be interesting none the less and at around 2/1 & 3/1 there is just enough Juice to make this the days NAP and PRO bet..( the dutch that is ). 1st @ 6/4 ( and 2nd )

In the finale i will be on SCIGHERA because its Crowley in the finale ( old habit ) and HAAFAGUINEA who has shown a liking for the surface and this course and @ 9/1 & 16/1 ++ is worth a few quid to round the day off.

Some fun and some EW doubles n Trebles will be on the card today as i place and walk away as i now have to go and prep myself in a Dali Lama way as im now off to the Dentist to have 4 fillings done, a scrape , Root Canal and a motherfucking crown fitted...oh my..what an arse of a day lol...i hate the dentist...im crying inside already......;-(((...

Wont be soooo bad if this is my dentist tho ;-))..ttfn.
