There were 4 horses named on the blog yesterday with 2 nominated selections – THEATRICAL MOMENT and MAKTU. Both the selections ran awful races. With Theatrical Moment, the writing was on the wall after they’d gone less than a mile as McCoy was niggling the horse as they passed the winning post on the 1st-circuiut. I’ll take nothing away from the veteran Eric’s Charm who won the race.
As for Maktu, I thought he struggled to stay the extreme Welsh National trip, but I thought that this was not as strong a race, however it is now clear that the horse does not stay a yard further than 3-mile. He was right there at 4-out (after 3-miles) but faded dramatically thereon.
As I expected, CAPTAIN CHRIS ran a cracker in the Scilly Isles Chase at Sandown, coming 3nd beaten just half-a-length. This was brilliant news for me and anyone who took my advice to have an antepost wager on GHIZAO for the Arkle last November at 12/1. I had a bit of adverse after that blog back then, but yesterday’s result has shown that GHIZAO has nothing to fear from this side of the Irish Sea in the Arkle.
The Horse Alert List is on a bit of a roll, with PALYPSO DE CREEK winning at 7/2 (from 5’s) making it 2 wins in 2 days for the list following PLEIN POUVIOR at 3/1 on Friday. The 13pts profit from those 2 winners is welcome, and I’ll do a full update of results from the Alert List tomorrow.
No selections today, and the loss of the Leopardstown meeting is very disappointing.
