After last weeks white-out, I've been licking my wounds and contemplating a return into the ring. Unfortunately, today's racing in the UK looks less than poor; but it is competing with top-class racing at Leopardstown in Ireland.
The only race that interests me today is the Veteran's Chase over 2m6f at Musselburgh at 2:05pm. Top-weight Calipso Collonges is in form and this trip should suit him well after running 3rd LTO in the "Tommy Whittle" at Haydock. Odds of 4/1 are available generally, and that looks fair - the only issue I have is the 6lb claimer in the saddle. I just don't think he looks up to riding this horse to win.
To be honest, today is a looking a day for a good walk.
