Don Cossack begins his Gold Cup campaign
I believe Loose Chips is a lot better than his current OR130 rating as he ran to 138 on my ratings last February when 2nd on soft ground at Sandown. The good ground today will be too quick for him, so success will be dependent upon the errors of others in the race. As such, I feel the advantage in this race lies with the fav By The Boardwalk but, as he's currently at odds of 7/4 (at best) he is too short in the market for me to recommend as a wager.
We've had a quiet week so far since the winning double on Saturday. I did think I had a wagering opportunity yesterday but, due to internet issue and problems with my laptop, I was unable to properly research and post a blog. As it happened' the horse I intended making a selection ran 3rd in the 3:50 at Wetherby, Final Assault. This was a very promising run from the 6yo, as he made-up considerable ground from the 2nd-last fence to be beaten under a length by the winner. I had a personal eachway wager on him (so no money lost) and providing the handicapper isn't silly with him (and as he was 3rd that is unlikely to happen) he looks very promising for his next run.
As such, no selection today; but there is some potential for possibly Friday.
Ocer in Ireland today, DON COSSACK begins his campaign that hopefully will end with him winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup next March. I currently rate him the best staying chaser in training and his race today at 4:30pm will be little more than a gallop for him.

Those who were sent the blog by email on Saturday morning, which contained 2 selections at odds 6/1 (SP) and 7/1 (advised), but who have not bothered to make a donation have now been removed from the email list.
All the best from Wayward Lad.
