Review of last week’s racing
Great week for the blog starting with a 7/1 winner and ending with a 5/1 winner providing a 9.40pts profit on 11pts invested; that’s an 85% return on investment.

We had some great racing during the week which saw some terrific performances, both equine and human. For me, the equine performance of the week was from STARSPANGLEDBANNER, who looked extremely impressive winning the July Cup showing relentless pace. The training performance of the week was undoubtedly from Richard Hannon who sent out a remarkable 14 winners in the 7-days from 48 runners. He was closely followed by Mark Johnston (9 winners & 11 placed from 41 runners).

From the jockeys, Graham Gibbons has been riding in the form of his life these past few weeks and getting winners from horse’s that he really shouldn’t be. He is starting to transfer his AW prowess (+£130.09 profit to a £1 level stake on all rides this season) to the turf and he’s a jockey to keep an eye on.

Today’s Racing Selections
There is very ordinary fare on offer today, so there will be no selection.
There is only one particular horse that catches my eye and it’s not because of what is in the formbook, as it’s never run before. Trainer, Ed McMahon has a tremendous ability to get a 2yo ready to win with an 18% strike-rate from all 2yo’s in the past 5 years (45 winners from 252 runners; +£24.27 profit to a £1 level stake). He sends one to Wolverhampton for the 6:20 IMAGINARY WORLD. So far this season, McMahon has had 2 winners from his 2yo’s, with both ridden by Richard Mullen who rides today. Mullen has ridden both the 2yo winners from just 5 rides on McMahon 2yo’s. This is Mullen’s only ride today, and he has no booked rides for tomorrow. Unless he rides a winner, he’s on just £96.50 (before tax) for today. Half-bro to IMAGINARY WORLD is the fairly useless Tom Wade (by Rakti), but “World” is by sprint stallion Exceed And Excel and she may be a different proposition. Currently 11/1, she may be worth a tickle.

And lastly, well done to Spain in winning the World Cup.
