Time for a united stance against News International

This is the 307th edition of the Wayward Lad blog.

Not the best of days yesterday. I put up 2 selections on Betting League (http://www.bettingleague.co.uk/) , which were:-
Pontefract 4:00, OFF CHANCE (finished 3rd), and
Pontefract 4:30, FLOWING CAPE (unplaced).

I was most confident about OFF CHANCE who I thought had an outstanding chance, but she was carried a bit wide off the home turn into the straight and did not quicken as well as I anticipated. The winner Law Of The Range probably won with a bit in hand but, on reflection, with a stronger pace and perhaps a bit of luck I would be confident of OFF CHANCE reversing these placings on similar terms.
As for FLOWING CAPE, a repeat of his Catterick win over 6f last month would have seen him go close here. But he was off the track for 5 weeks prior to his run last Friday and that was a stinker. As such, I was hoping that run would have brought him to peak fitness, and it hadn’t.

Funnily enough, the best of my selections was that named on the blog – Hidden Glory. He had perfect conditions yesterday based on his close 3rd to Beachfire at Sandown on 03Jul10 off OR78. He was held-up and then came with a sustained challenge that took him into 2nd from a position that gave him far too much to do. He was certainly a place-only proposition going into the race and had I known his place-only odds would be 7.00 (that’s 6/1) then I would have advised him as a selection.

Please check Betting League (http://www.bettingleague.co.uk/) after 1:00pm to see if I have any selections for today.

Finally, I know I am not the only person who has found the recent allegations of journalistic "practice" at the News Of The World (operated by News International which is a part of Rupert Murdoch's business empire of News Corporation) totally repulsive. It's about time decent people made a stance against these despicable newspapers who make profit from the tragedy and despair of the innocents.

Thanks for reading this blog to all new visitors.

Thanks from Wayward Lad
