I’m going through a quiet period horse wise.¬† Mon Michel is probably out for the season, and he was possibly my best prospect for this year.¬† Tifernati was bought to go hurdling this year, but he had a massive wart on his backside which had to be removed - he should go in to Gary’s [...]

Well enough of all this financial meltdown chit chat and on to the important things in life.  Three runners today - Nicky Nutjob and Bet Noir go at Ponty and Bea Menace goes at Warwick.
Nicky is a perfectly decent racehorse but I don’t think he’ll make up into much of a 2 year old.¬† He’ll [...]

A brilliant hatrick for Lilac Moon.¬†¬†It shows¬†how much pleasure there is to be had in the lower reaches of the racing game¬†- it doesn’t all have to be about¬†shooting for the stars.¬†
Lilac’s hatrick can be put down to a whole host of things;¬†¬†High on¬†the list is her attitude to racing - puts it all in [...]

Some interesting racing today, including a couple of runners for me.  Lilac Moon goes in the last at Newmarket and Pansy Potter in the 4:25 at Newbury.
Tom Dascombe runs a couple of likely types today, and they may both be worth following.  Blakfrankisch runs in the first at Newbury, and is ridden by Michaela Sowerby.  Michaela [...]
