The times they are changing
Next up was CITY STYLE who, tho’ outclassed by rival Rio De La Plata ran on well enough to come 3rd at the generous odds of 9/1.
Then it was the first of my “naps” FOREST CROWN and, as expected, this 3yo filly who is a half-sister to Group 1 winner Crowded House improved considerably on her earlier run and won “head-in-chest”. This horse ran off OR83 and on this display could be 110+.
Cumani’s LUC JORDAN may have been thought to have disappointed but Mark Johnston had sent Submariner over 200 miles for this and the stable money was down. Even so, there was a significant market move for Cumani’s horse from 4/1 in the morning to 5/2 at the off.
Stoute’s only runner TIMELESS STRIDE was expected to do the business – and was my next “nap” – but again there was a major gamble going-down on another, the eventual winner Kellys Eye who won this with tonnes in hand.
I thought John Gosden’s ZANAZZI looked very green early on, but he ran on well over the final quarter-mile to finish 2nd beating the race fav, and I would expect it to improve an enormous amount for the experience.
There was a huge move for Baldings only runner WHITE DEVIL – my 3rd “nap” - from 16’s this morning (it was 10/1 at the time I posted my blog) to 4/1 before settling to 6/1 at the off. It was only beaten half-a-length into 2nd.
For those of you who trade the exchanges, my qualifiers have performed well as a trader does not need to find a winner to turn a profit. If you have benefitted then leave a comment, thanks.
There are 7 trainers “in-form” with just a single runner today:-
M Johnston with LADY ÉCLAIR in the Hamilton 4:40 – should win this;
B Smart with STORM COMMAND in the 5:10 at Hamilton (Sir Mark Prescott has his only Hamilton runner in this race – Bona Foruna);
W Haggas with DEVER DREAM in the Lingfield 4:50 – should win this;
M Bell with RED AMY in the Lingfield 2:50 – looks a tricky handicap;
M Jarvis (who can do no wrong at the moment) with DYLANESQUE in the Sandown 7:15 – this half-sister to Alessandro Volta (3rd in Irish Derby) should be capable of huge improvement on its 2yo form;
Barry Hills with HAIL PROMENADER and A Balding with ISPHAHAM both in the Sandown 7:50.
I wont be able to post the in-form trainers over the next few days as I’m away on a break (off to see my 7yo son who lives with his mum in Cornwall) but I will return on Monday. If you are enjoying the profits of this blog posting then please leave a comment. There are not many of you out there from the blog visitor stats (probably only 20 or so) as such, currently you’re able to exploit what I consider is a “gap” in the market. You can also find me on twitter (Wayward_Lad) and I usually send out a “tweet” when the blog page is posted (saves you scanning the blog page when there’s nothing new to read).
Keep winning with Wayward Lad!
