Who fills the gap at Carlisle today?
No selections for the blog yesterday.
The one horse I mentioned – GOLAN GUY – was running in Ireland at Tramore for AJ Martin with Ruby Walsh in the saddle. He started off a solid fav at 7/4 but never got into the race and, at the finish, was found to be lame. These things happen in racing, horses are not machines and that’s why you have to “build-in” an element of risk into your wagers.
There are a couple of jumps meetings today (I’m not bothering with the meeting at York on the “flat”). I am particularly drawn to the meeting at Carlisle for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I have been fairly successful at this meeting for the past couple of years, mainly by following the runners of Howard Johnson. However, as a result of his ban from racing, he has now “retired” from the sport and that has left a huge gap that needs filling on the Northern jumps circuit. The obvious candidates to fill it are Don McCain, Nicky Richards and Sue Smith and all 3 are well represented at the races there today.
Nothing takes my eye at Newton Abbot.
I’m looking more at the meetings on Saturday at Chepstow and Hexham and there could be a decent wager to be had. I may also have a final wager on the flat racing at Newmarket for the season, but I doubt it will be on the Cesarewitch.
