Swinton Hurdle Day (Haydock)

This is a reblog of Friday’s posting…

A great end to the Chester May Festival meeting with three winners for this blog on Friday afternoon.  Kingfisher (J P O’Brien, 11/4 jf), Brown Panther (R Kingscote, 6/4) & Destiny’s Kitten (R Kingscote, 7/1) brought home the money with places too from Grissom (D Allan, 8/1) & Innsbruck (Joe Doyle, 8/1).

I’m an early bird with my Saturday selections this week as I’m aware that quite a few of my friends are in attendance at Haydock Park so I’m getting these ones in early just to assist/hinder them.

Saturday’s Haydock fancies:

1.50 Hay- L’Unique & Wyse Hill Teabags (e/w).

2.25 Hay- Active Spirit (win).

3.00 Hay- Hawkeyethenoo (e/w).

3.30 Hay- Montbazon & Loyaute (e/w).

4.05 Hay- Lockwood (win).

4.40 Hay- Baby Shine (e/w).

5.15 Hay- Too Cool To Fool & Granville Island (e/w).

If you still have any funds left after the last race try a few bob on Austria to win the Eurovision Song Contest (4.7 Betfair as of 7.00pm Friday). It might be the corniest event on the planet but there is serious money to be made on the exchanges.

Conchita do your Wurst!!!

Good luck to all those at Haydock Park on Saturday.

We love that Moose!!!

moscropriponThe 8.40pm Ripon last night was like a scene from Tales Of The Unexpected. But what exactly did happen?  Answers on a postcard or on the comments section below. The funnier the better and keep it tongue-in-cheek please 😀

Chester was a pleasing festival overall and the final day had Magician (R L Moore, 13/8 fav) & Mount Athos (J P Spencer, 11/8 2nd-fav) making the winners circle for this blog but the BIG story of the day wasn’t all about a winner but the placing second of Mad Moose (to Mount Athos) in the Ormonde Stakes which went down an absolute storm on social media. Plenty of 66/1 down to 20/1 eachway backers were totally made up with the placing and Exacta/Forecast backers like myself were really happy with the £33.80/22.15 return.

Swinton Handicap Hurdle (Haydock)

Ok ok, we know it’s not called the Swinton any more but in our hearts it will always be known by that name. You can’t eradicate the race history overnight 😉

This is another race I’ve always had a fondness for over the years as it’s kind of the very last “big race” of the NH season, well the NH season in its old format if you catch my drift. To me it signifies the end of the NH season and the start of the Flat racing proper. Do I come over as being a traditionalist? 😀

Past Glories for me in this race have been 1999 She’s Our Mare, 2001 Milligan (picked for obvious reasons), 2004 Macs Joy & 2007 Leslingtaylor.

I hope you followed me in yesterday for a third consecutive successful day at Chester. Pintura (J P Spencer, 9-2 ) & Grissom (D Allan, 9-1 ) contested a Stewards Enquiry in the opening race which was followed up by Astrology (J P O’Brien, 11-10 fav) in the next race. Who could have predicted that? 😉

Today’s fancies are at Haydock:

2.00 Hay- Cantlow & Nagpur (e/w).

2.35 Hay- Euxton Hall (e/w).

3.05 Hay- Our Jonathan (win).

3.40 Hay- All The Aces & Tony Star (e/w).

4.15 Hay- Red Jazz (win).

4.50 Hay- Clare Island Boy (e/w).

5.25 Hay- JoBurg (win).

Does Henderson hold all the aces today?

Hoping for my own five card trick today! 😉

P.S Mull It Over will return next week for the York Dante Meeting.
