The title of today’s blog is a message to all jockeys. The less we talk about yesterday the better. Two terrible rides ruined the day, enough said, take it on the chin and move on.
This flu is not budging so I’ve just got up to send this out.
The only horse running from the list today is RAPID WATER 5.50 Kempton. He is particularly well handicapped on his old form and probably should have won on his last two starts. He has been pitched in against the very progressive Neige Dantan from the Prescott yard who you will remember was the conqueror of Taro Tywod last week. He will probably continue his progression upped in trip. Rapid Water is a solid each way proposition and given the favourite’s style of racing (lazy) we might trade short in the run so if your backing on Betfair put up at lay at around evens.
SHREWD (5.20 Newm) Looks to me like he will be much better than his current mark of 85. He really has looked like a soft surface suits best so you can forgive the poor run on very fast ground last time. He looks a solid bet up and trip and back on a softer surface.
Back to bed for me with a pack of Lemsip.
