A good day for the blog yesterday. Not only was the eachway blog selection profitable – MASTER SOMERVILLE was 3rd, having been advised at 18/1 in the morning – but the Horse Alert list also provided a winner (that happened to be in the same race) with PLEIN POUVIOR winning at 3/1.
So, the blog selection provided a 1.30pt profit (not 1.75pts as I wrote in my comments after learning the result) which puts the blog on a 0.30pt profit for the month.
Some good racing today at Sandown, Ffos Las, and Wetherby.
The Novice chase at 2:25 at Sandown looks a cracker of a race and worthy of a place at the Festival itself. I will not be making a selection in the race, but personally I expect that CAPTAIN CHRIS will show how good he really is today – and boost the prospects of his conqueror Ghizao in the “Arkle”. Later in the 3:35 we have an opportunity with THEATRICAL MOMENT. He never stopped improving last season (was OTT in the Scottish National) and was not beaten much in the William Hill H’cap at the Festival. He runs off OR135 today, which is 7lb less than he carried at the Festival, and he goes well right-handed and will love the going. At 13/2, he looks a decent wager.
At Ffos Las, the Welsh Champion Hurdle is a bit of a joke, which must be terribly disappointing for the organisers and sponsors. The 3m4f chase at 3:10 looks a good race and MAKTU would have been hard to beat in the Peter Marsh (had it been run a few weeks back). His stamina was stretched in the Welsh National but this does not look as strong a race at that was. At 6/1 he looks a decent eachway wager.
At Wetherby, if PALYPSO DE CREEK does not win the 2:45 then he’s being sent hunting.
Sandown 3:35, THEATRICAL MOMENT, ½pt eachway @ 13/2 (Hills)
Ffos Las 3:10, MAKTU, ½pt eachway @ 6/1 (Hills)
Total = 2pts staked
