MUFTI wins in a canter @ 3/1

Review of yesterday’s racing
An interesting day for the blog yesterday.
Both the main selections - Precision Break and Cheam Forever - were not just beaten, but were very disappointing. However, the 2nd-string won again (perhaps I should just advise level stakes on each horse mentioned on the blog) with MUFTI winning @ 3/1 in a canter. He looked an OR90+ horse here as he had then strung out like washing without even trying.
And, what about Barney Curley? He had us all fooled by Allanit (his listed race winner running in a class 5 handicap) as his other runner won @ 7/2.

Today’s Racing Selections
There are 6 meetings today, loads of racing to choose from, but I’m going for a previous blog selection who won for us – DOLPHIN ROCK at Haydock in the 3:40. A C&D winner on good-to-soft, at least we know he has a good chance of handling the soft going today. He is the only runner of the day for trainer TD Barron (a man who likes a handicap gamble). Also, the form of that Haydock win is looking mighty fine. The runner-up Pintura has won since and is up 7lb since meeting DOLPHIN ROCK (raised only 5lb since); in 4th was Spoken who has won twice since and is now up 13lb. DOLPHIN ROCK probably found the going a bit too quick LTO, and at 8/1 today he looks good value as he could have 2lb or more in-hand on known form and he will handle the going and is a C&D winner

Haydock 3:40 DOLPHIN ROCK, ½pt each-way & 1pt win @ 8/1
Total = 2pts staked

  1. That was pretty close and I cannot fault either horse or jockey (Graham Gibbons). The dam of the winner is a half-sister to a Dewhurst winner, so he was undoubtedly well-treated off OR87 and is probably more like OR94, which makes DOLPHIN ROCK about OR87. Had DOLPHIN ROCK taken the rail he may have reversed the placings. GRRR...
