A frustrating day yesterday with our horses finishing 2nd/UP/1st/2nd/1st/UP. I thought our win double in particular was annoying given that our second legged traded at 1.2 in the run. As far as today is concerned, we have a variety of bets detailed below. ===============================
4:15 Sandown - NEBULOSA (7/4) - This filly has slowly been coming to the boil this season and this looks like a nice entry for her. My only slight worry is that this might get a little tactical and I’ve also heard a little whisper for DIVINE MAGIC but hopefully we end up being on the right filly!
7:30 Chelmsford - CLAIM THE CROWN (11/8) - Horse had a lovely introduction on debut and with Ray Dawson booked to ride, I’d expect this horse to break his maiden tag today. 1pt WIN DOUBLE
4:40 Newton Abbot - SHINOBI (4/1) - 1pt WIN - This horse returned to form the last day and with the drop back in trip expected to suit he should be going very close!
5:50 Newton Abbot - GERARD MENTOR (6/1) - 0.5pts EW - This horse has ability but he’s a very tricky customer who can be very wayward under pressure. However, his yard were very happy with the run lto and if the addition of the first time check pieces work today then he’ll be going very close.
0.5pt (1pt Total) - EW DOUBLE
4:15 Sandown - NEBULOSA + DIVINE MAGIC - 0.5pts (1pt Total) - COMBINATION FORECAST
TOTAL STAKE = 5pts
AUGUST P/L = 32.93pts
