The Weekend Whisper (Fri 27th Feb)


TWW currently stands at -4.65 pts

Knockanrawley gave a good account in the Eider last weekend and rewarded us with each-way money for fourth place.

Tomorrow my selection is running in the Grimthorpe Chase and the horse in question is Night In Milan. Night In Milan is also one of my long term antepost fancies so tomorrow could easily make or break one or two of my slips.

Keith Reveley’s charge looks to be one of the key protagonists in the race and  I was very impressed by both his second place to Grandad’s Horse in the Bet365 Chase and his third place in the Great Yorkshire Chase – both at Doncaster.

TWW advises:

1pt e/w Night In Milan 3.45 Donc (6/1 generally).

*price correct as of 9.12pm Friday.

The Weekend Whisper (Fri 20th Feb)


TWW currently stands at -6.65 pts

Gas Line Boy gave us a good run last Saturday but unfortunately just finished out of the places in fourth.

My original choice for tomorrow’s Eider Chase was declared a non runner earlier today so it has been back to the drawing board.

Kim Bailey’s Knockanrawley stays longer than the mother-in-law and is by no means a speed merchant. However, when the others have cried enough, which they usually do in this race, this grey gelding will be staying on. He has a tendency to edge left but don’t worry about it. If his last run and win at Newbury are anything to go by it won’t make any difference at the business end.

TWW advises:

1pt e/w Knockanrawley 2.55 Newcastle (12/1 generally)

*price correct as of 8pm Friday
