Today’s Info 4th October 2014
The start of a mammoth weekend is here.
Some super size pots for the youngsters today and I’ve one to try my luck with in the shape of Bossy Guest. Mick Channon has booked James Doyle and I’m hoping he will enjoy this on the talented youngster. Been rising steadily through the ranks and improving whilst still looking green enough on occasion. I think his price in the 2.20 at Newmarket is fair enough and I hope there is a good bit more to come yet.
At Ascot I’ve two with Reckless Abandon and American Hope. The former has lots of toe and class and has been ripening this term without getting back to absolute best and this race should see that return. Kevin Manning is up and that’s a solid booking for a horse that hasn’t found a regular pilot for new connections.
American Hope is a big bull of a horse and has to be allowed an unfruitful run last time out, prior to that was going places and can still be considered a well treated charge for Mike Murphy. Shane Kelly is on top and will just be hoping for a little cover and a fair run of things to get his sweet travelling charge to the business end with a chance. Fair price and a horse on the up still looks worth a wager.
For the Arc tomorrow I’ve had a small play already on Flintshire who was all the rage for this only 12 months ago and will get a decent bit of terrain this year. A really lovely animal who ran close to Cirrus des Aigles this term when coming back and was not disgraced in the trial despite not winning. At the odds in a really open looking heat I’m playing especially with a nice draw to aid any problems in the early stages when he will look to take a pull into the contest.
