Review of yesterday’s racing
The rain’s came down yesterday, but it did not stop MUSIC OF THE MOOR – the blog selection – from winning very easily at odds of 5/1 (advised in the morning at 13/2). As expected, the step-up in trip to 12f really suited, but I think it was the soft going that really made the difference as the horse cruised through it. As I commented yesterday after the race, MUSIC OF THE MOOR looked set to run away with the race 2f-out but his run up the rail was halted after which he had to switch into the centre of the track but, still under a hands’n’heels ride, he took command of the race and ran out a comfortable winner. Due to go hurdling this winter, he looks a great prospect for the winter scene.
The other blog selection LUSCIVIOUS, ran well till halfway but then the soft going and driving rain took its toll. In my opinion, the going was very soft (officially, good-to-soft) and it showed as the lead changed hands several times in the final furlong as horses ran out of puff.
At Lingfield, as highlighted by the blog, Roger Charlton’s only runner of the day SUGAR BEET won at 4/1. If you read his website (www.rogercharlton.com) you would have been well informed of the potential of the horse. Charlton is intending to try and win again with the horse under a penalty. Keep a look out for it.
Lastly, at Yarmouth, none of the Newmarket “hotpots” highlighted as ones to avoid actually won, and so you could have laid them all on the exchanges on the basis of the narrative given here. Cecil’s Panoptic was btn at 10/11; Suroor’s Dafeef was btn at 11/8; and at Lingfield Gosden’s Johnny Castle was btn at 4/5.
Overall, a 2.90pt profit on the day, but you could have won much, much more.

Today’s Racing Selections

There are three flat (turf) meetings at Beverley, Sandown, and Yarmouth, and an AW meeting at Kempton, as well as the meeting at Listowel in Ireland featuring the Kerry National.
I am having to write this blog on Tuesday evening as I’ll be travelling in the morning. As such, there is only a brief overview of racing here.
At Beverley, there is a class 3 handicap over 12f at 4:20 and, given the success of Music Of The Moor yesterday and the formline involving YASHRID, then that horse has to be considered in this race. Michael Jarvis only has this horse running for the stable tomorrow, and he’s only sent 11 runners to Beverley (3 winners) in the past 5 seasons. Jarvis will be going there with intent, and the 9/1 available as I write looks fair eachway value.
I cannot see anything worth a wager at Sandown, tho’ the return of one-time Derby hope and winner of the 12-furlong Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot, Bronze Cannon, is very interesting – even over a mile he could be too good for these.
At Yarmouth, there is some decent racing (unusually) and given the recent good form in the past week of Sir Michael Stoute’s runners, I would play close attention to his runners here; especially NOURIYA and REVERED.

Finally, the Kerry National at Listowel in Ireland. Ruby Walsh had ridden the winner in this 4 times in the past 6 years, and only once was on the favourite! He rides DEUTSCHLAND and this classy horse, who is unexposed over this 3-mile trip, is a decent jumper having been campaigned mainly over hurdles for the past 12-months. He is currently best-priced at 16/1. Also at Listowel, do not ignore David Pipe’s BATTLE GROUP in the 4:05, which is a novice hurdle. He has been aimed at this race.
