The biggest week in horseracing
I am now concentrating on writing the blogs for the rest of the week and finalising my selections. As such, I will not be issuing any more bulletins - so please no more donations until the winners start coming in! I did recieve a couple of donations on the eve of the Festival last year, but I refunded them as it just isn't fair to take a donation when the blog (with the 1st-day's selections) will be going online on Tuesday at 10am (or thereabouts).
I was hoping to boost the bank on Saturday with just the one selection posted at Sandown, but Denali Highway could only come 3rd @ 7/1. He ran a strange race, running in snatches. One minute he was needing to be rousted along, the next he looked to be cruising into contention, then he was being driven again and finding little. As I wrote on Saturday, I reckon he's well handicapped on OR126 and he's likely to drop another couple of pounds following the handicappers assessment of this run. It could be that the horse has a problem that will rectify itself in time as, apart from his seasonal debut when he was clearly not fit, he's not come anywhere near repeating the form of his novice season.
That's it for today, it is time to concentrate on the most important matter in hand. Before writing off tho' some of the things I'm looking forward to seeing this week:-
BIG BUCKS winning the World Hurdle in style;
Something pushing HURRICANE FLY all the way to the line in the Champion Hurdle;
SIRE DE GRUGY rewarding his trainer George Moore with a win in the Champion Stakes;
SILVINIACO CONTI securing the champion trainer title for the the Festival for Paul Nicholls.
Finally, but not least, all the horses returning home fit and well.
Good luck to everyone for the Festival.
