Aintree Old Roan Chase Day 2012

I for one will be packing my thermals and big knickers for Aintree this weekend as the icy wind is going to give the Merseyside track a very autumnal feel. I’ve been caught out in the past being under-dressed whilst trying to brave the elements and it isn’t much fun so a thermal vest will be donned underneath my shirt on this occasion and I rarely do vests.  What a fashion guru I am!

Tower (Mr D Hiskett, 2-1 fav) & There’s No Panic (R Walsh, 6-4 2nd-fav) kicked off the first two races at Fakenham yesterday with the two opening winners. Mr Hiskett should be awarded the “determined ride of the week”  prize when he doggedly kept the lazy looking Tower up to its business to snatch the win by a head.

Saturday’s Aintree fancies:

1.50 Aint- Nampour & Bradbury (e/w).

2.25 Aint- Fabalu (e/w).

2.55 Aint- Pasco (e/w).

3.30 Aint- For Non Stop & Hector’s Choice (e/w).

4.00 Aint- Don’t Tell Sailor & Four Fiddlers (e/w).

4.35 Aint- Unioniste (win).

5.10 Aint- Lord Of House (e/w).

Monet leads them out…

Remember-wrap up warm! 😉

Newbury New Horizons

Well if it wasn’t for Peddlers Cross & Premier Sagas winning yesterday I would have almost drawn a complete blank at Kelso. So here’s hoping for betting things today. 😀

If you haven’t seen it already here’s some heart warming news about Monet’s Garden. Click here to watch a video of Monet’s Garden – now fit – beginning his journey home from Yarm to Nicky Richards’ Cumbria yard http://bit.ly/fpJkR1

Six days after the tragic horse deaths at Newbury in the parade ring the meeting is rescheduled for today. Spare a thought for all those directly involved with those stables last week and let’s hope everyone comes home safe and sound today. It should be a great day of racing and even CH4 have picked up the coverage again.

Today’s fancies are naturally from Newbury:

12.10 Newb- Awesome Freddie & Stow (e/w).

12.45 Newb- Fair Along (win).

1.15 Newb- French Opera (win).

1.50 Newb- Bothy & Zanir (e/w).

2.25 Newb- Railway Dillon (e/w).

3.00 Newb- Tarablaze (win).

3.35 Newb- Bygones In Brid (e/w).

Bright news on a grey day! 😉

Southwell Softies

A couple of winners yesterday at Leicester squared up the day nicely and restored some punting equilibrium. Hidden Keel (supported by photo pic) under Paddy Brennan was a most impressive winner (s.p 7/2). The galloping grey naturally made me think of poor Monet’s Garden who is fighting for his life. I really do hope he pulls through.

Today’s selections are from Southwell:

12.40 South- Bellvano (e/w).

1.10 South- Milan’s Man (win).

1.40 South- Gaora Lane & Daldini (e/w).

2.10 South- Dancing Daffodil (e/w).

2.40 South- Sonic Anthem (win).

3.10 South- Management (e/w).

3.40 South- Cool Steel & Feel The Power (e/w).

You can do it Monet!!!

Our prayers are with you laddie! 😉
