Cold Snap Ahead

The racing this week has been interesting as trainers get what should be a final spin - and hopefully a winning one - into their horses before the Cheltenham Festival.  There have been some decent performances this week, for instance INSTANT REPLAY yesterday at Sedgefield; BAND OF BLOOD at Doncaster on Wednesday; and BUCKLE STREET also at Doncaster on Wednesday (this 5yo could develop into a decent staying chaser).

There are more interesting types out today and some that catch my eye are:-
POLLY's PERSUIT - only runner for Nicky Henderson at Exeter today, running in the Mares' Hurdle at 3:40pm.
COO STAR SIVOLA - will need to win this to gain an entry to the 3m1f handicap chase on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival.
SOCKSY - improving mare, possibly didn't appreciate the heavy ground LTO, but will stay this 3-mile trip.

Tomorrows racing looks like being very decent and with the forecast cold weather due to hit the country on Sunday/Monday and expected to last most of next week, good performances on Saturday could have a huge influence on results at the Cheltenham Festival next month - it's just over 3 weeks away.

Regarding the Cheltenham Festival; I've been invited to participate in a Charity Tipping contest via www.horses4causes.com and I'm also planning on writing a daily blog Monday to Friday during Festival week.  In the meantime, I've been updating my personal stats sheet, looking for trends that the others ignore, but also focusing on the trends that are the most important.  So many Festival "Guides" are produced now that it makes no sense to produce my own - so what I do it focus on the best bits.  I'm also planning on attending the London Racing Club Festival Preview evening on Thursday 8th March and (finally) I'm expecting to be at the Festival on the Thursday and Friday.  I'm not sure where I'll be - probably in the "Best Mate" stand on the Thursday, and will try and obtain a Tatts ticket for the Main Stand for the Friday.
