Covers flat & AW racing from March 2016

Have put previous posts on Some Guesses recently, but seem to have a jinx  on there as had too many close 2nd's
It may be my way of interpretation of the races though?

So moving on with my own post

3.00 Curragh Platinum Warrior Nap: Hazapour backers for next week's Derby will be hoping to get a boost here from the pick. having watched the race a few times did look a good renewal of the derrinstown Derby trial. Though this is only a group 3 and O'Brien has that sown up according the betting with Guineas winner. do expect a bold show from Shane Foley on the selection.

5.20 Curragh Clongowes E/W/ 6/1 Bog NB: An open field but do think the Jim Bolger runner should go close. The new trip could well eek out a bit more improvement.

16.50 Windsor Koditime Nap: Tipped this horse up on here just over a week ago at York where he was smashed into in the Market. He won pretty decisively under Ryan and expect Adam to the same and boot this fella home in front again. At around 2/1 he's about right in the market as it has Clear Claims. Written on the basis its good ground or quicker if it has been hit by lots of rain abort the Nap and lay off asap.

3.30 Leicester Photographer NB: Frankie's only ride of the day n the hint should be taken. The pedigree screams stamina so the extra 2F today really ought to help plus  New Approach horses much prefer the green Grass then Synthetic surfaces n though stable mate is a danger i think the Market has it the wrong way round. Frankie's mount should be Fav over The Havlin horse in my book.

A couple of 2nds today and both trading short in running.
The Nap just run down after kirby slightly tardy away and taking a while to get out off the rail.
Once he did thought would hold on, no surprise 1.09 in running.
the difference between winning and losing minuscule, but u do need it all going right at 5F.

As for the NB Frankie all at Sea in the middle and again came there in final furlong to win.
Thought the pick had a high enough head carriage and looked to dog it a bit n not sure if he ever really wanted to get by.
Wont be a rush to get involved with it again.
Winner and Obvious danger as highlighted pre race looks progressive and a nice attitude.

Was to late to post my fancy n Nap yesterday The Way You Dance at Lingers.
Neil Mulholland over 1m6f on A/W has a great strike rate. Something to bare n mind for the future.
Mind You it was almost a horlics moment by SDS as he really didn't have cleanest passage.
However he must have plenty in hand as it did finish strongly.

2.00 Bev : Eeh Bah Gum Nap. Clear claims with a good draw in stall 2 which always helps at Beverley. won easy last time and the penalty wont be enough to stop this horse going in again. around 5/2 its worth getting involved.

4.00 Nott : Iconic Belle Nb. E/W at around 6/1 has good chance to be right in the mix here. Do hope they go a good pace as this filly should be rattling home in this long straight at Notts.

Derby: Hard to see past the jolly, is he Value at Even Money is the Question? He certainly ain't no odds on shot in my book which is what Greedy Bookies quoted after his Guineas and leading up to today's Race. In reality he is more of a 6/4 shot. So going else where for the Nap. But do Hope Saxon Warrior is the Star that he is expected to be by many and romps home later today and then goes for the Triple Crown.

3.45 Epsom Dark Shot E/W Nap: no surprise to see Caspian and Boom the Groom blaze the trail but do think the pick with younger legs is a horse to keep on side. Really caught the eye last time and its been laid out today for a big run. at around 13/2 with bookies paying from 5 to 6 places he ought to be bang there.

8.30 Chep Kinglami NB low grade affair but Expect a bold show from this veteran at a track he likes.

As for the race itself nothing went right for the jolly as was blocked at crucial stages + unlikely would have won anyway but would not be a rush to write it off yet. Well done to William B n Godolphin.

Very disappointing. jumped out well enough and was expecting Doyle to go and make all instead he tried putting the handbrake on, they crawled round the first few furlongs n the pick ended up to keen. shame he did not do the same as at Newbury and keep it simple and go a decent gallop. unless under orders by Haggas do wonder sometimes what goes through these jockeys heads.

7.45 Curragh One Master Nap: Normally once bitten twice shy but will give Haggas/Doyle another chance tonight to get back last nights cash back and a little extra as its trading around the 6/4 mark. Again hope this horse will settle and that Doyle doesn't have any bizzare riding tactics in his head. The pick has the form in the book and again should be a tough nut to crack if all goes to plan.

Well that was an interesting race to watch. So much to to talk about. lets get my pick out of the way Maxim Guyon did a bloody good job of making sure Shahnaza had a rough trip by leaning on it trapping it and making life murder. probably not good enough anyway but that clearly not helped. with 7 in line with 50 yards to go, fair play to Laurens who stuck her neck out and wanted it more then the others. Barzalona on the 2nd as usual left it pretty late.
Was right about Happily who to me starting to look like a bookies horse, they must love that filly. didn't lay it this time but if its short enough next time would have no problem laying it again.

Went off Shabaaby when looked at past Listed races - the 3yo's rarely win but see the winner today was 3yo (MJ). Had already put it in the multiple but then layed it to lose as a single bet

I play the multiples most days varying between 10p - 25p doing  Heinz or Goliath using the spots and next best.

3.05 Southern France: open field but do like the progression of this horse and the further the better i feel with this animal.
3.40 Hydrangea NAP: Worthy 2/1 Fav and this horse on Form should take all the beating if back to anywhere near its best. All Aboard!
4.20 Cracksman: impossible to oppose back on a track he likes should be a formality. will lump on it if i am having a good start today.
5.00 Raising Sand and Saltonstall: My two in this big field feel it might pay to be drawn low. Dutched.
5.35 Emaraaty And Headway: again will Dutched these two in a very competitive field.

Good Luck Mr. P look fww to your selections at Ascot.

Another Brutal day for me.
NB out slowly, unusual for wes ward american speedsters but they are not pinging the lids n running bad.
Nap one of the first in trouble. Awful!
Cracksman looks cracked never traveling n clearly not enjoying the racing.

Off for a beer this Mattie not so good lately.

Follow Kevin Blake top tipping on ITV he's the man to follow, lucky had a little on his settle for bay as a saver.
But losing days last two days.

Not surprised that Cracksman didn't win.
Had a hard race last time

Order of St George won the first win with 8
2nd the year after with 13
this year it was 22.

That was one reason to lay

The other reason was the G1 score for Ascot past winners over last 3 years
only one win with a double figure!

Day off today.
Too much going on at home.
Getting ready for a party on Sat for grandaughter
She is going to USA to work for a month.
Missus had a long list for things to do.

The racing was mainly 3yo's today anyway - not enough runs to get a decent pattern or difference from form.

Won't be doing much tommorow on racing.

I like Dash of Spice for 5.35.

Sioux Nation as my NB

So hope not put the mockers on Dash of spice the way my Royal Ascot is going.

Well Glad that meeting is over for another year.
Tough going with all kinds of madness going on.
NB Harry Angel nonsense left a sour taste.
The Nap and big gamble of the day chinned in the next by a Rag And ITV crew all loving it especially the commentator sums up the day.

Mr.P taking the day off and going to the party the right move.
