This is the 336th edition of the Wayward Lad blog.
I've been out of circulation for the past week or so, mainly as I’ve not seen anything worthy of having a decent wager on. Sure, there are lots of speculative opportunities and, even looking at my Flat Racing Notebook which I put together earlier this season, I could have named a few winners – but they would have been speculative rather than measured wagers.
Take HUMIDOR for instance who won at 14/1 last week (Wednesday 7th). He was entered the day before and would have been the subject of a 2pt win wager, but he was withdrawn at about 11:40am just before I was going to publish my selections on Betting League. The race he ran in on Wednesday I thought he’d be outclassed in, unless he was in tip-top form, hence no selection. Take a look at what I wrote about him on my Horse Alert page: “won class 3, 5f h'cap in time just 0.28 o/s track record. That performance looks exceptional. He seems to go on any ground and stays 6-furlongs. A late foal, he's improving hand-over-fist.”
On 9th Sept (Friday) at Doncaster, another from my Flat Racing Notebook BEATEN UP won for the 2nd time this season at 9/4. Look what I wrote about him: “won debut at 3yo win commanding style despite running green. Half-bro Harris Tweed (OR112) won same race in 2010 in similar fashion and was rated OR85. So, OR86 rating for this win looks reasonable.” After winning the race, the Racing Post analyst thought the same, considering him thrown-in (in hindsight) – but I put readers of my blog onto the horse back in April. MASHAAREF in 2nd was another entry in my Notebook.
FINE THREADS (see my Notebook entry) is due to run this weekend, take note.
What I’m saying is that I may not be posting a blog everyday nowadays, but there is still plenty of value in what’s written on the blog. The Weekender is out tomorrow and I’m now concentrating on updating my Horse Alert List for the jumps season. I enjoy the flat, but where I may my bread & butter is on the jumps scene.
