2.50 Longchamp – Subjectivist – WON 5/1 (Adv 6/1)

With the ground rising on the “holding” or soft side in France, Subjectivist get conditions he revels in, and the 2 mile trip should prove ideal as he’s an out and out galloper. He’s been competing in some very good races this season and whilst he’s been a little outclassed in the Great Voltigeur and […]

1.45 Doncaster – Lipizzaner – WON 10/3 (Adv 4/1)

Quite surprising to not see Lipizzaner as favourite here, as upon close scrutiny his form stacks up extremely well. Runner up on his first two starts to a couple of very smart winners, he then ran a fine 4th in the Norfolk Stakes, staying on well after a slow start. A winner on his return […]

3.17 Thurles – The Bosses Oscar – WON 5/2

It seems he may well stick to hurdles this season, rather than switch to fences, with the Coral Cup suggested as a possible long term target. Whilst slightly wrong at the weights with a couple of his market rivals, they are far more exposed than his is and not open to as much improvement. In […]

2.47 Chepstow – Secret Investor – WON 11/4

The good ground is a real plus for this horse, who’s form on a decent surface is very good. A decent hurdler, he’s really taken to fences, winning twice as a novice with the 2nd of those victories the Grade 2 Future Champion Chase at Ayr. He didn’t appreciate the soft ground on his first […]

5.30 Kempton – Dark Company – WON 2/1

Sent off a 3/1 chance on debut, Dark Company showed his inexperience throughout the racing running very green and really looking in need of the outing. That said, he did really well to finish a close up 3rd on pretty soft ground. Sure to be far more streetwise with the benefit of that run, a […]

3.20 Newmarket – Urban Artist – WON 11/8 (Adv 7/4)

A slightly unorthodox passage to Newmarket handicaps, following an unsuccessful try over hurdles. She’d previously won 2 NH Flat races, including at listed level at Cheltenham. Switching to the flat, she has improved with each race and was very impressive when winning at Goodwood last time and looks very capable of defying the rise in […]

2.15 Longchamp – Wonderful Tonight – WON 4/1 (Adv 5/1)

This filly had a fair amount of attention on social media recently when her trainer David Menuisier “tongue in cheek” suggested he might supplement her for the Arc on Sunday. Connections have sided with this slightly easier option and with conditions in her favour they may well be rewarded with a Group 1 victory. She’s […]

1.55 Ascot – Piranesi – WON 2/1

Having expressed concerns over soft ground when adding him to our notebook section, we’ve revised thoughts and feel the 1m2f trip may have been stretching his stamina, as he travelled through the race on soft ground last time very well, before being outstayed by the winner, who step up in trip and class in the […]

2.20 Nottingham – Mishal Star – WON 11/4

Made a really encouraging debut when a staying on 4th to subsequent Group 1 winner Alcohol Free at Newbury, where the front 4 pulled miles clear of the field and Mishal Star finished her race off really well. Sent to Kempton for her second start, she showed the benefit of that first run, racing more […]

3.20 Pontefract – Highway Grey – 11/8 (Adv 5/2)

Very progressive this season, winning 3 of his first 4 outings of the season with all those victories being at this course and the latter of those far more comfortable than the winning margin suggests. Two runs ago he was unlucky at Chester, as he just didn’t quite handle the tight track and having been […]
