The Cambridgeshire 2014


It’s great to be back blogging keen and refreshed after a weeks holiday in the Cotswolds. There’s some lovely places in that neck of the woods and some wonderful areas to walk and explore in. Shame I had to come back really but the show must go on. Paris next weekend for the Arc so I can’t grumble.

Today’s fancies are at Newmarket:

2.00 New- Little Lady Katie & Hawkin (e/w).

2.35 New- Elm Park (win).

3.10 New- Tiggy Wiggy (win).

3.50 New- Maverick Wave, Dance And Dance & Chancery (e/w).

4.25 New- Taqneyya (win).

5.00 New- Kip (e/w).

5.35 New- Jack’s Revenge & King Torus (e/w).

6.05 New- Gothic (e/w).

On returning home yesterday it was sad to hear of the passing of Toby Balding. His runners had me hooked on NH racing as a boy and his Little Polveir was instrumental in that love for the jumps game.

RIP Toby and thanks for the wonderful memories.

Cambridgeshire Day 2

An eight race bonanza is on offer at Newmarket today and I’m hoping to step up the strike rate a little from yesterday’s “reasonable” returns. The first race was a disaster, however the lays and backs picked up and then tailed off at the afternoon end.

1.25 New– Lay Tabassum. Back 1pt e/w Sweet Sonnet & Crown.

1.55 New– Lay Confront. Back 1pt e/w Rio De La Plata & 0.5 pt Young Pretender.

2.30 New– Back 1pt e/w Sand Vixen & Song Of My Heart.

3.05 New- 1pt win – Poets Voice.

3.40 New- Lay Esaar. Back 1pt e/w Total Command & Swiss Cross.

4.15 New– 2pts win Drill Sergeant.

4.50 New– 2pts win Bab Al Salam.

5.25 New– 1pt win Beauchamp Wizard.

As you may or may not know, my passion is N.H and today my bet will be BALLYNURE  (4.00 Hexham, Each Way).

Cambridgeshire Day 1

I’m kicking myself this morning as my discipline yesterday on the horses was terrible. Even though I identified in the morning it was a “sit out” day, I still played. Fortunately, I improved my fortunes in the evening courtesy of F.C Zurich which was the only “upset” in last nights Champions League fixtures. I didn’t get to hum “hungry like the Wolfsberg” for long either! 😀

Seriously, if anyone has any tips or suggestions as to what they do on “no trade” days, let me know. I guess I simply just should have left the house 😀

I’m very fond of the Cambridgeshire meeting, so I’ll be looking at all races the next three days.

2.00 Nwmkt– Surely a mine field of a race with unknown 2-y-o maidens. Lay Fareej and back the Stoute pair 1pt e/w Blissful Moment & Istidlaal.

2.35 Nwmkt– Another scary looking maiden, but the jockey booking of Fallon on one selection and racecourse experience on another make me select: 1pt e/w Joe Rua & Rum King.

3.10 Nwmkt– The favourite looks too short here. Four out of six are with sound claims. Lay Manifest and back Akmal and Free Agent.

3.45 Nwmkt- A wide open Group 3, but I was impressed by Swilly Ferry’s win in a massive field last time and Buick could boot him home late again today. Also Clive Brittain is in a rich vein of form. Therefore back 1pt e/w Swilly Ferry & Nideeb.

4.20 Nwmkt– Blink and you’ll miss it 5f dash for horses with more holes in their form than a dartboard. 1pt e/w Himalya & 0.5 pt e/w Sirens Gift.

4.55 Nwmkt– I can’t see any further than Vitoria to be there or thereabouts.

5.30 Nwmkt– An open finale and possibly a pin stickers race. My pin comes down on 0.5pts e/w Vainglory & Dingaan.

Good luck all.
