Some Sunday Lunch Money...


Yesterday was overall a flat day for me as i looked to take on the obvious and expected and the obvious and expected performed.

Performance of the day goes to the incredible POSTPONED a horse that has improved so much i firmly believe this is THE best 1m4f horse currently in Europe and a win at RA will be followed by a route to the Arc and if in the same heart will win no question ( been clipped from 8/1 to 4/1 ).

And as much as i " thought " this would win i still went against it with Simple Verse who needs a much stiffer test of stamina and only woke up in the final 1f and i think another tilt at the St Leger is on the cards and a wee ante post may be in order.

The rest of my day went pretty much the same with US Army Ranger getting a very poor ride from Moore and denied a Derby victory whilst Catargo did absolutely nothing.

Over at Donny the Godolphin charge Dubai Destiny ran a super race as looks as good as i was led to think.Run into 3rd or rather was hampered, checked and squeezed out of 2nd and any chance of winning by the winner and eventual 2nd , this was sat on the inside swinging away and tanking until the 2f pole then they all made a move and this just cruised up the inside and then at the 1f pole really got to work like a proper horse, the winner ran a solid race and got the jump but was tiring and this girl was full of running at the end at 7f or even 1m will not be an issue at the back of this race the winner swerved into the rail checking my runner whilst the third switched two wide to pip it for 2nd as Dubai nearly lost itss legs such was the commotion....THIS IS A NAILED ON FUTURE WINNER!!!.

Back to area of expertise the NH i ventured into a couple of small bets on the seasons first Juvenile Hurdle and i had a £50 win on the Easterby charge that failed to stay ( in fact it was classed as a non finisher ) and i also had £25 EW on Rajapour as this as explained was the only stout staying bred type in the race and this ran a cracker and almost capitalizing on a last fence blunder by the eventual winner going down by a short head at 31.58 ( 25/1 ) and 6.2 a place so did ok there but if this can learn to settle and jump cleaner then it could have a bright future as it was full of gusto at the end and there was  16L gap back to the third suggesting these two are decent enough to nab a few summer wins with a view to a promising 2017 winter campaign.

So today , well we have two decent bets in RAINY CITY and MENORAH.

Rainy City has taken an age to sort his shit out but looks a very decent type now and i expect this to be capable of rattling off four or five wins through the summer then take a break and come back in November whilst Menorah is a perpetual Group 1 or graded runner that although advancing in years is still a very decent performer and this is a sizeable drop in class and lets not forget lto he beat the very useful Valsuer Lido which is a ton better than any other form available and i will be very surprised if this doesnt piss in.


RAINY CITY - 1st @ 4/11

MENORAH - 2nd @ 11/10 ( Gave winner 2 stone )

1 X £100 DOUBLE = Loss....Booo...always tomorrow...
