Am hoping that one of the above switchers, Elegant Joan, may be more than a no-hoper in the 12.05 at Southwell. Her new trainer has a good record at the track and his horses have been going well recently. Her second appearance, at Chepstow, was a hot novice which has produced some good winners. She made the pace until about a furlong and a half out in the 6f contest. Is a half-sister to two winners including Pancake Day who has won four times on the fibresand, albeit at a low level. The opposition is decent although the market leaders don't appear to be showing improved form recently. 40/1 available in a couple of places at the moment and might be worth a speculative punt. Happy New Year.
Bit of money for this, but it wouldn't take much to shift the price.
Think you're onto something but possibly today, in a Maiden, might not be the day . If it runs half decently without getting within 5L of the winner, you might get a decent price NTO when it can run in a handicap, so worth persevering with I think.

Hi Roz, a summer of illness but hopefully over the worst, keep meaning to post one up but last few were not much cop, I'm going to dip my toe in the water with one over the sticks.Snowed In - 1.00 Catt 12/1Won a race at the track on New years day in 2015 & 2017, won this race last year with 7lb claimer up so does not look as well in at the weights but though not raced here since Feb it loves the track, certainly horses for courses is very apt here & the price does seems a tad bigWould also like to wish everyone a happy & healthy New Year.
wd pump - won easy enough

20:15 Marshall Aid ew 25/1 or 18/1 1/5 odds 123 w/o Ted's BrotherLong time maiden but has some good form over C&D and drops in class here. Trainer is in good form. Jockey is the negative and so is the fact that Nicola Currie doesn't ride when she's at the track.I've gone with the 18's w/o Fav and would be disappointed if this isn't in the first four (and hopefully the fav is too)
This ran awful when I backed it on Dec 22 (see above). Ran tonight and won. Guess who was riding!

Always the way PHS - i remembered your selection last night and seen it was so well hcapped - managed to get a bit of 10s - it didn't last long and was clipped into 7/1 last night

I ve decided to leave the race alone i.e 4.55 wolvJust the two for me tomorrow2.50 Chepstow : MILANSBAR 20/1 EW BOGRan a good trial leading into this and is well hcapped on some of his past form - going to love the ground too . The weight could be key there tomorrow and everything looks right for him imo 3.15 Wetherby: BORDER VICTOR 14/1 EW BOG NAPBeen slipping down the weights all year due to some down the field performances across a variance of trips - wears headgear for the first time tomorrow and i wouldn't be surprised if it shows a massive improvement - speculative choice but enough interests me to make it my NAP
3.55 Ayr BORDER VICTOR 16/1 EW BOG
Intheknow, (regular poster) pointed out that he believed that a step down in trip is what BV look like he needs when running over 3m at Wetherby , i agreed and on that basis im keeping the faith putting him up again for tomorrow when he tackles 2m 41/2 f at Ayr.
The handicapper has dropped him another 4lbs after that Wetherby run and Lorcan Murtagh takes the ride claiming another valuable 5lb -a very promising jockey.
Fingers crossed that he gets competitive

7.40 Wolverhampton: MAGS WELL 18/1 EW BOGI think there is a 5f class 6/7 race to be won with this ex irish filly at some point this year , ran a couple of good races at Wolverhampton last year in June/July for Irish trainer E Linehan - both runs were over 6f/7f where she easily lead and only to get headed late on in both races.Her last run at Wolves was in December with Timmy Murphy on board, whilst making the pace she weakened from the 4f pole and looked to be running on the spot . She was a 50/1 that day and was possibly running to get a further reduction in her mark, she may also have had a wind operation since... but we won't officially know stuff like that until after the 19th January.I think she is worth another go with K T O'Neill taking the ride - His only ride of the day and waits till near 8pm to get it. The filly is also entered for a 6f race at Kempton at Tuesday.... but im in no doubt that the shorter the trip the better chance she has of winning one of these poor sprint hcaps.
also wears pieces for the first time.

LolI'm sure that having 16/1+ about a 6/1 poke thats a NR as wouldn't like the ground won't make you feel too frustrated
It probably was the ground but can we be sure of that ?
It will be annoying if it opens up at 5/1-7/1 the next time its declared.
