This is the 321st edition of the Wayward Lad blog.
Yesterday’s selection posted-up by me on Betting League was a loser. BOOGIE SHOES still looks a horse with plenty of potential, but they need to perhaps run him on a flatter track. He should be capable of winning off OR93 and at the 2f-pole I thought he was going to burst thru’ – but that’s when he lost his balance! Watch the race again, he makes a violent swerve when asked for an effort. This is a repeat of what happened at Epsom (which I blamed on the track), and perhaps the horse cannot cope with undulations. I also thought he did not see out the trip as he lost about 2-lengths in the final 100 yards. So, he’ll remain in the notebook but I’ll be looking at a flatter track and a drop to perhaps 9-furlongs. Whatever, the handicapper should drop him a pound or two.
Today, there’s an interesting meeting at Thirsk.
Saeed bin Suroor makes a rare trip there (5 wins from 11 runners) so his entry in the 3:30 BURJ HATTA needs close inspection. And John Dunlop makes the very long journey here with MISS TOPSY TURVY in the 4:05. My old mate JARROW did not look like winning with 2-furlongs to go LTO, but win he did and in some style. Can he do it again in the 4:40 of a 3lb higher rating? His draw, 2 off 13, wont help.
At Goodwood, the opening race looks very tight with little on Official Ratings separating the likes of Redwood, Harris Tweed, Jukebox Jury, and Campanologist. I’m going to give the 21-runner Totesport Mile a wide berth.
So, what is my selection today? I posted-up BOOGIE SHOES early yesterday to take advantage of the odds (was 12/1 in the morning, with an SP of 8/1). Take a look at Betting League as that’s where you will find my selections, the link is adjacent. As a result of a cracking month of selections (4 winners from 9 selections) new followers will have to pay a small monthly subscription to view my selections. I’m sure you’ll find it profitable, and I’m not one who will post-up half a dozen every day and wreck your betting bank. If I haven’t got a selection worthy of a wager with my own money, then I won’t post a selection.
