• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.

3 Year Olds

Windsor 6.30 Gonna Dancelot @ 16/1

Serious doubts about the filly being in wrong grade off 67 in a 0-85 ( against Haggis, Bin Suroor, Stoute, Beckett, Botti & Cowell), plus the soft ground is a concern.

However, I do think she is way overpriced and the betfair sp may be even more appealling. I'm probably wrong but I always think Jane Chapple-Hyam gets her fair share of big priced winners. I would have passed her over at single figures, but the current price is just too tempting.

If she bombs tomorrow, I will probably follow her over a cliff this season, as I do think she will pay her way.

GD has collateral form through Sweet Reward who I tipped up today via By My Side , who does actually look a 80 horse. That run was off a 10 month break, so no surprise to see some more improvement.

Also worth considering the owners only other horse with the stable is a 95 rated 2yo.

Common sense would say pass over this 3yo+ race , which is virtually all 3yo's and it's odds on that one of the Newmarket monopoly will have potential listed class runner here.

I'm already thinking I've been mugged over by the price, but I'm confident she will pay her way this season.


I must have mentioned this horse at least 3 times on here as being a cliff horse for me.

I had it down a reserve but just noticed it's gone from 10/1 yesterday to 3/1.

Too short for me, so no doubt it will win tonight

Ran badly considering the odds - well swerved

Seems an age since we doing these races, looking forward to the new season to get 3yrs olds going again
 
I will be looking for a few that have gone through the sales markfinn markfinn

The 11.45 has got my interest, as I thought 3.8 for Damned Elusive was generous, although the jockey is major concern with a s/r of 2/68 in h/caps using his 7lb claim.

Taking out the jock issue there is an awful lot of collateral form for a 6 runner race, through the Johnson improver Coupe De Champagne.

DE holds all of them over shorter trips in my view . Red Right Sand did beat the the yardstick mentioned CDC, who has been raised 10lb since meeting Damned Elusive, but I'm not convinced CDC ran to her best form in that race and was eased at the end and RLS was pushed out.

The only horse ironically that has no collateral form is the Johnson horse making it's h/cap debut. Didn't make it's 2yo debut until the autumn and gelded after last run, no surprise to see improvement but not enough for me to pass over Damned Elusive.

The step up 2f looks perfect for DE, not only based on last run, but half sister had a similar late 2 yo campaign ( same breeder/owner/ trainer) and picked up a 2 mile Ascot h/cap on 5th run off 82, last year. Rated 91 now she has been sold to a jumps trainer.

Damned Elusive will need further through the season I'd guess but late February is early enough to catch the horse distance wise for me.

No complaints re the jockey win or lose, but eve with 5 opponents, he needs to get an early pitch from stall 1.

She got a wide run lto when beaten by Coupe De Champagne, who as usual for a MJ runner let from the start. CDC accelerated 3f out, when DE had to slow to cope with the wide turn.

Fingers crossed for a better run.

Good thinking doomster doomster, I believe you have it sorted but i'm a little concerned that RIGHT SAID SAND getting 9lb off CDC finished just over a length ahead in a faster time over c/d, anything else i think you've mentioned. good luck.

Great post and best of with the bet if do go in - I note Balding is sticking with the Jockey and he has cost me twice in the last fortnight , but Balding is in form - Johnson - Burke - Hannon also

Burkes horse trained and owned - has the recorded speed and the race is full of pace note they are 270 miles from home - which is not the ideal - no prev winners in the race and all have a claims - need some cover
 
Wolver Enaitchess @ 9/1

The fav takes up 30% of the book and looks worth taking on IMO.

A Gosden h/c debutant, but at class 6 level I'm generally happy to take on the few he actually runs at this level, even if Havlin does travel for the ride.

Even though she led lto over 7f, the 1 still really means they will have to force matters from the start, as I can't see them risking getting stuck in behind.

Nozieres looks consistent at a low level, but stall 11 is a killer. She finished 2nd lto from a wide draw at Lingfield, but the race fell into the hands of the hold ups.

Split Elevens is only 3lb higher than winning a nursery, but it was a bad C6 with an average OR of 53.

Accrington Stanley has to be of interest is fully wound up. Decent runs in a fair races lto for grade in December, the problem looks to be the track, as he will need the leaders to over-do the early pace and he could easily run into trouble.

I would have preferred a wider draw for Enaitchess or even a return to a C6 h/c at Kempton, but although I'd expect her to find a little more improvement, what she has achieved to date looks to give her a dcent chance.

They somehow managed to get a 4lb hike for getting beat 4 lths here on 3rd run, finishing behind a 150/1 shot. The 1st and 2nd are now drawn 82 & 80 but there was no depth to the race.

She did break ok and travel well early on, but ran green in the straight.

She had a wind op afterwards and reappearred off a break in an auction maiden from stall 1 at Lingfield. She ran ok in a moderate race, considering it was a rails run the whole way round and the extra 1f probably went against her.

She returned to Lingfield 2 weeks later and showed improvement off 65, although slowly away, by design from stall 1 again, she travelled ok and only faded to finish 3 rd in the final 100 yards, beating Splits Elens by 2 lths plus. It was stall moderate stuff bordering on C7 grade, but she did improve.

Her chances tomorrow hinge on what she actually achieved lto in a C5 at Kempton. Decent grade race were she was the lowest rated runner off 65 in a 0-76, she finished 3rd at 18/1. It's yet to show how strong the race is, but the winner was 4lb well in off a penalty and been raised 7lb.
The 2nd under- performed nto at Newcastle on saturday, but anything trying to make all at that track, especially into a head wind, can be forgiven.

The 5th Dashing dick makes me think it was a standard C5 grade race. He was dropped a lb for that run then ran again to finish 3rd and been kept on 73.

The big upside for me was she broke well got a decent position tracking the winner/ leader. When her chance had gone she still stayed on. The better quality horses behind her had no excuses.


Enaitchess is the only horse that interests me here and currently double figs on the exchange makes her a fair bet.

The Gosden runner makes the market and I'm betting on this being her last run before going off to the stud, although Southwell could be her last chance saloon option. The mare has produced 7 other runners and all needed further than todays 6f. Prescott got the duffers, but I hope Gosden has been lumbered with one

That's a really good post doomster doomster , demonstrates just why you are doing so well and getting the results that your work deserves.
When you scrutinise the form on these type of 3yr old handicaps it is possible to find whatever you want to see, where UNDER WRAPS is concerned you can find horses with higher numbers than the 64 rating she has today in front and behind her, on the otherhand you can pick out bits of form that are somewhat negative. On balance over wolves 6f i think UW is a few pounds better than 64, maybe 70 and i would also think the number 1 draw is a positive, certainly better than being drawn out wide, to be honest i think she is a worthy fav but most probably 9/4 isn't great value just fair. good luck.
 
Stall 5 would be my ideal stall pick T tacker if I had to choose.

If Under Wraps is ahead of her mark, the stall 1 won't be a problem, but I think it can cause plenty of problems, unless you have early pace.

Exactly! Havlin will surely try and jump out quickly but if something goes quicker all the better to sit close until the straight, it's what we see everyday.

This conversation takes me back to some recent research, I was looking at trying to identify best jockeys for the correct circumstances -
 
I suppose I will have to chuck any future profits to them as well mlmrob mlmrob

British racehorse owner Kulbir Sohi intends to honour the work of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) staff in combatting the coronavirus by naming a horse ‘Enaitchess’.


Sohi, who has 32 horses in training for a flat season currently suspended by the pandemic, saw the idea on Twitter.

He then checked the availability of Enaitchess through the British Horsercaing Authority’s naming service before receiving approval on Friday.

All of his current string have been officially named, but Sohi said Enaitchess would be given to a horse purchased at a future sale.

He added all prize money earned by Enaitchess would be donated to the NHS.

Praising NHS staff for their “selfless” work, businessman Sohi told the Racing Post: “The name is pronounced NHS and the name will probably go to a horse from the belated breeze-up sale.

“I’ve already got seven two-year-olds and named all of them. The pressure is on as I’ll have to go and find a good animal, maybe I’ll have to ring around trainers to see if there are any ones showing quite a bit on the gallops.”

Sohi’s red, white and black colours have become an increasingly familiar sight on British flat and all-weather tracks since he started in 2014, with his most notable success Time To Study’s victory in last year’s Old Borough Cup at Merseyside’s Haydock course.
