An 8/1 winner for the blog
A tremendous day’s racing yesterday and, more importantly, an impressive performance by this blog.
I posted 2 selections on Betting League yesterday and had a cracking 8/1 winner with QUSHCHI (SP 5/1) at Newmarket. Since this horse finished 3rd to Brown Panther at Haydock in May after trying to give that horse (now rated OR118 after coming home 2nd in the recent St Leger) 2lb, she’s been in my notebook (see adjacent page). She’s a cracking filly and must be looking for some “black-type” next time out.
My other selection was TIGER REIGNS at Ayr, who I thought may repeat his win in the same race last year, but he wasn’t in the same form.
However, from my Flat Racing Notebook came a horse I’ve thought very well handicapped, and that was XILERATOR who won at Ayr – making all from start to finish – at odds of 12/1. This horse does not stay a mile (well, he might on an easy flat track), so forget his previous run at Ripon. He also has to be able to get out, lead and dominate the race – which is what he did yesterday. Given his only run as a 2yo was over this course and distance on similar going and he ran well, he should have been tipped-up by me. Even so, with two half-bro’s rated OR100+ he’s one to follow.
Another I really should have been on was CHEVETON who won the Ayr Silver Cup at 12/1. Combine the words “Ayr”, “Soft” and “September” and one name jumps out – CHEVETON. He just loves is at Ayr and I expect he’ll register another win NTO (so long as it’s in September) probably at Haydock as he did last season.
Finally, the way OUR JONATHAN won the Ayr Gold Cup was phenomenal but, it really should not have been a surprise if you look at the formbook. After a tremendous 2yo season, he started life as a 3yo rated OR111 and, as you might expect, he struggled. This season as a 4yo he’s developed into a cracking racehorse, and a look at the formbook shows back in May he was 3rd at York to HOOF IT who was running-off OR99. Now, HOOF IT is rated 20lbs higher at OR119 so to get so close to him back in May was a tremendous effort. In fact, judging by yesterday’s performance OUR JONATHAN has closed the gap on HOOF IT and had the latter taken part I doubt he would have coped with him. You might also want to put the name of the horse that split this pair back in May into your notebook – HORSERADISH seen once since when beaten in a Listed race at Windsor won by BATED BREATH. On a current rating of OR102, HORSERADISH can win when fresh off a break and looks very well handicapped indeed, possibly 10lb+ well-in.
