A blogging milestone passed

Just realised that yesterday’s blog passed a milestone – it was my 200th blog page.

So, this is blog page 201 and the start of a new month.

There are a couple of meetings today; at Folkestone and Taunton.
At Folkestone, from the Alert List we have ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES in the class 5 chase at 3:40over a trip of 3m1f. He has been dropped 4lb to OR88 for pulling-up on heavy going LTO, and that is a gift from the handicapper. Both his runs this season have been on unsuitable going (good-to-firm and heavy) and today’s good-to-soft should be perfect. Trainer Chris Gordon has an appalling record at Folkestone (0 from 30) but he had a 50/1 winner a few days ago, and perhaps he’s got his stable firing. There is certainly plenty of support in the market for him. He opened at 20/1 (very early doors) and was quickly cut to 12’s (at 8:30am), now he is best-priced at 8/1 (Ladbrokes).
Dougie Costello, who normally rides in the North, makes a long journey here for 2 rides and the most likely winner of those is COTILLION in the 3:10.

At Taunton, nothing jumps out at me, altho’ the “bumper” that closes the card should be worth watching for the notebook.

Selection:
We’ve missed the longer odds about ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES now, so I’m going win-only, as there are now only 7 runners.
Folkestone 3:40, ABSOLUTE SHAMBLES, 1pt win @ 8/1 (Ladbrokes)
Total staked = 1pt
