Today’s Info 1st August 2015
Nothing to shout about yesterday and a few poor runs gave little hope in running!
More from Goodwood and Galway today for us to work with and Galway first should see Dermot Weld rack up a few more winners after a serious amount of crossbars hit. I expect Zafayan and Hoppala to take plenty of beating but only the latter a possible wager at the odds. The Handicap Hurdle at 3.15 is a corker and Pyromaniac would have been a big player in the Galway Hurdle but missed out on a run and has to be on side in this although the trip is a slight concern but if he gets up the hill he has a bit more to come and sets the standard. At big prices I can’t resist Silver Tassie for Meade and Carberry who reverts to hurdles after an unlucky spin of chase runs hasn’t got them a win, this will suit and the mark is more than fair I hope so at big odds is a second dart.
The handicap at 5pm is not the strongest and Sofi’s Spirit with Fran Berry on is consistent at the level and deserves to nab something just like this. I thought this would suit and surprised to see double figures around for a horse with a solid each way chance and a fair draw with Fran up top. A small bet but hopefully handles this well today.
I like two in the opener at Goodwood with Seeking Magic due and back at Goodwood will suit ideally, coming to the boil and looks a fair shout whilst Major Jack is still to hit top form and also handles Goodwood well so has obvious claims and can produce a career best under George Baker.
Baker is also on Huntsmans Close who has all the pace around him for the Stewards Cup and is my main pick in the minefield this year. I have to give Suzi’s Connoisseur another chance after being a bit luckless this term and did take them along in the Wokingham, this will be quick and if hanging tough at the front end and staying on looks a long priced dart worth chancing.
Best bet of the day could be Tutu NGuru who is clearly going the right way and has a lot more to come for Haggas and Cosgrave and into Nursury company is rightly favourite at Newmarket. I hope the progression contiinues and they come home nicely at 2.50pm
Lots of racing, potential for another blow out is high but hopefully a bit of luck will see us get back to winning ways!
