A blogging milestone passed
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.
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
