• 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!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    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.
    Keep safe.

UKBF Common Race

Portuguese P only fillie in the race has the look of the perpetual brides maid about her - Archie Watson horses in great form and coupled with Miss Doyle top my list - 4yr open to much improvement with only one win on the board and string of 2nd places inc 1 here in a race that has since produced two winners - got the worst of the draw and that's a worry given the string of 2nd places - but race comments do read well and they are persisting with her, good pedigree and average OR of 75 from sample of almost 800 1st and 2nd places puts her around the average but age suggests there should be more to come - the field is full of current healthy stables and D Evens runs two always a distraction,
 
Couple of interesting things about Love Your Work. I think it’s first time ever Kingscote is riding for Stef Keniry. And headgear, although he is 0-6 in cheekpieces, I still think it’s interesting that they are back on for first time in a long while. All 4 of his wins have come here, including off higher mark. Beaten favourite behind Legal Reform last time though, and this looks a stronger race, so no bet for me.
 
I was split between LYW and Borsdane Wood and I've gone with the latter who is now 8/1.

LYW holds a recent collateral formline through Dafr, but I'm hoping there will be more to come from BW. Sending him to Wolver lto when clearly a fibresand horse, gives me hope they wanted a fitness run and a h/cap drop, which they got.

BW has obviously ahd issues with only 2 runs as a 3yo, in races above his grade, although he may have got a back mark for his last win over C&D as a 2yo.

His most recent run over C&D gives me hope he can win again and he simply didnt perform on turf. 2nd to Dafr, who followed up on next two runs 9 Beating LYW) and a SH off being 4/4 over C&D. Borsdane Wood gave Dafr 6lb that day which was an impossible task as the latter has been raised 12lb off the back of those wins.

He was caught behind horses in that race, dealing with the kick back, when he's generally has clear daylight. Once he was clearly beaten, he was was allowed to coast home for 2nd, but his final 1f was impressive considering he wasn't being pushed.

The outer stall draw should give him a clear run, even if it means a wide trip.

Borsdane Wood comes here a lb lower than his last win over C&D

So far I have

Green stables are who I consider in form and will not back if they fill this criteria of the in form ones - Dont Like Skeltons on age grounds - Warren Greatrex been of course 685 days-

Looks as though Neil King and David Pipes will be my selections but that's me for tonight
