One for the alert list

Yesterdays selection MERRION SQUARE looked in need of the race which was disappointing for a Paul Nicholls runner. With 5 to jump he moved-up smoothly behind the leaders (which was reflected in his in-running odds) but at that fence, the first in the straight, he hit it hard almost losing jockey Daryl Jacob and that did for his chance. Considering that another on my alert list in the race STORM SURVIVOR ran a great race to deat-heat for 3rd, and was well beaten by my selection when they met last May, there is plenty of scope for MERRION SQUARE to come on for the run. As such, I'm adding MERRION SQUARE to my alert list as he will surely improve for the run and has all his best form when going right-handed.

Another going onto my alert list is OPEN DAY who was 2nd earlier in the afternoon. I've liked this horse for a long time and when he gets his preferred conditions, a right-handed track, the word "soft" in the description and a trip of 2m4f, he's worth following.

Of the others from my alert list that ran yesterday:-
SWNYMOR fell when beaten, but should come on for the run and will appreciate a bit of "give" in the ground NTO. That said off OR140 he'll need to improve to win. I'll give one more chance to show his worth.
FOX RUN unfortunately suffered a fatal fall and we'll never know what he was capable of but he sure showed enough promise.
JOIN TOGETHER couldn't get involved and will be better-off when the rains come and slow the horses down.
THEATRICAL STAR ran a good race for the opening 20-furlongs of his race but (predictably) ran out of stamina at that point and trailed in last. If you discount the fact that he didn't stay the trip, this was a good run and he could be overlooked NTO over a shorter trip.

I'll be keeping my selections to my alert list for the near future and I'm tempted to wager on them blindly after HAROUET won at 9/1 earlier this week.


  1. I'll be following your alert list all season, but of course, they cant all win....

    1. I hope you were on today's (15th October) 5/1 winner.

  2. Thanks Mark. The alert list has always come good over the season and I'm confident it will do the biz this season.
