A couple of potentially interesting profile picks at Beverley tomorrow in the 3yo hcps, election day and the blues master.

Will probably be able to take or leave the blues master at it's current and likely sort of price sub 2/1 but election day would certainly be of interest at it's current price or bigger (6/1).

As this is an sp thread I'd really like to see how the land lies nearer the races.

WD Striding. I backed SIA last time, but not today Cry

DeSousa winning on him is a bad omen for me - I need him to steer Danzeno to at least a place in the big one.

Try Celest later with drop back

Joe missed out at GG today, perhaps a good shout up at Hammy in the lucky last?

Celestation stays a bit further than the trip for sure and is now top weight with the 2 class drop.Has won with a bit of cut (won on GS at Chester), has run perfectly well in two or three class 4's off a bit higher.

The interesting profile point is that at a track with a decent record generally, in August 3yo's in the 3yo+ hcps see a record of 9-22 (3.99 expected).

Putting all this together 11.5 looks too big to me at present.

Will look into the race a bit more.

Just not getting the vibes for this celestation tonight.

There is other pace notably Amy Blair and though I doubt Joe would get hooked up on the speed I am just wary of this sort returning to form this season.

Also Hammy was as solid a track as there is for the yard with it's handicappers until recently where it may just be a blip but the figs have cooled off pretty noticeably.

2008-2015 47-231 (35 expected)
2016,2017 3-42 (7.08 expected)

I've done very poorly on horses I am hoping to shrug off a well btn lto run (in the lower classes especially) this season and on balance I'm not sure I have the confidence in following too many more of these.

Perhaps just a blip but It's not giving me the confidence to pay to take the chance at present.

There is more evidence now in these novice races (since mdn classification change meaning a real big increase in them last 2 seasons) but I have hardly played the 2yo's and won't now be starting with runners like today's for the remainder of the season. I would say you would need pretty big balls to lay any of these on the evidence of 1 run though.

I would think the market will eventually get to these novices as the sample grows, probably when I join in next season with a few of the angles. Laugh

gl anyone playing these 2 today.

Curlew River very unexposed with the age allowance again stepping up to 1m4f at Brighton today after it's Leicester success over 10f in the same class, this is a decent prize for the class and should give a very good account of himself. The course stats for this type are good, the sheikh has a very good record in these 3yo+ (3yo's) in the class and the top weight and follow up stats are strong too.Hopefully settles better than the only time joe was aboard previously when lost all chance in a better race on the aw.

think the current price of near 5/1 on here for this sort is ok today with all the profile ticks.

Mistime was due to take her chance in Titi Makfi's GG race last week but ruled out late with a self cert. Not many would be sent to GG without being race fit with such a profile and this is obviously a less hot contest today but my gut feeling with this jockey booking (nothing against him) suggests other days may be a better proposition, Franny is off to Haydock for one ride for Tony Carroll this afternoon and SDS is on the current betfair market leader in the race. The profile has plenty to be positive about generally, these layoffs would not put me off even this far into the season with unexposed handicappers (first run at trip today) but I'm banking on my gut feeling being right and today not being the day.

Ravenhoe the only other this evening. Has got it's class, trip (course should suit too) and is in it's usual hcp range to win. But has taken advantage of pretty weak contests and it would surprise me somewhat if enough including the 2 lto winners misfired as I think they would have to for Ravenhoe to prevail on ground that hasn't been seen as optimum.

Overall hcp record is 3-40 and all 3 wins have been against races made up of non winners lto. 2 placed efforts from 23 runs against any winners lto in it's races isn't great to say the least.

Am out tomorrow should be back about 3:30

Plenty of likely looking types but not sure come race time how many are going to appeal at the prices,

My chum Highly Sprung still potentially has 6-8lbs to play with imo, missing this at Redcar still smarts tbh had been banging on about what it needs and then managed to not commit at a decent price. Had to inject his own pace plenty early enough last time and should get something more solid to run at dragging him into the race as he likes, the Brighton finish on fast ground should be ideal over 6f.

Yorkidding been freshened up and really should run a big race in that field, Berengaria  has had experience of better class but is still pretty unexposed on fast ground, like today's winner another Sheikh runner in a class 4 3yo+, not as strong for me as today's and all about price.

Will see the state of play when I get in tomorrow.

Passing on Berengaria though not the easiest of leaves with a lot of the same characteristics as yesterdays winner at track.

Form not really stacked up enough for me this year looking at what's come out of it's races, you'd have expected better after last season's efforts and could easily get back on track today.

Highly Sprung has to be selected today, I thought that once it got conditions off it's mark before the last win that it could easily get a couple of quick races landed and I still think He should be well treated here with optimum looking conditions again and SDS up.

There should be a decent pace to sit off and I'm hoping a strong late SDS drive can get him home again and gain some compensation for me missing it at Redcar. If he can't land the spoils I'll put this horse down to one that got away this season!

Town Charter the one that catches the eye most today. Notebooked after HQ run at big odds when never in the race but steadily keeping on in a class 2 off 87 nearly grabbing 2nd behind parfait who is clearly different gravy (won off 100 back at HQ subsequently).

Redcar was disappointing upped to the mile when not really settling, didn't have anything late left in the tank.
Chester held up from a wide draw before marked late gains back over 7f, a typical chester run with a poor draw.
Ayr was a shocker when well fancied, front running but went out like alight.
Ripon in today's class over today's trip didn't get the clearest of runs or going early enough before making late gains off 83 just out of the places.
Last run didn't seem to pick up at Newcastle on the tapeta over 7f and has dropped another couple of lbs.

A horse that may well just not be quite putting it in but definitely seems to appreciate a bit of cut and the mile trip has on a few occasions looked to be what's probably needed now. Has come down quite significantly in the ratings since the promising HQ run and on a going day in today's class is probably worth a final chance imo at 5/1+

A couple of interesting ones today.

The nursery runner Go Now Go Now has some strong angles. class 5 nurseries with a win lto 10-22 (6 expected).

Runners remaining in this class from last run that placed lto and see just a 1/2f change in trip are 5-5 (1.2 expected)

2yo nursery runners in the class in August are 10-27 (5.29 expected)

PJ is 10-37 on turf 2yo's (5.17 expected)


Nepeta started out at last season's GG showing a bit of promise, mdn was landed on 3rd start and some of subsequent from has been patchy regards it's depth but in relation to a race of this sort of class it would often be more than adequate for a horse that should be better over more of a trip this season.

The layoffs up to around 6 months don't seem to be a problem but this sort of layoff isn't as strong to hope it's going to be fully wound up today and I have no idea why this has been kept from the track so it has obvious risks attached. I was hoping to find the Beverley air powers of revival to be in evidence with this sort off the layoff but there are none in my DB.

Filed under the interesting but risky sort that has definitely not paid off on here this season so far.

Valley Of Rocks has been a bit of a character and may well have his own ideas, very keen at times when on the front end before more recent patient tactics which saw a win that at the time I thought could see some further progress (seemed to show a good attitude to get up from unpromising position at Leicester). It looks very much now that he took advantage of them coming back that day in a weak race (19lb lower than today's average OR) and since then has not figured in similar looking races as today's. I can't really see why VOR would have any decent claims against a few of these that should be more capable in the class.

Just had to get some air for a few mins.

Confession... thought GNGN race was 4:10 Blush

Good that it won for the stats but hardly a consolation, can't afford fook ups like that with the state of play!

Not playing any others now.

very frustrating but have to get on with it.

No profile pluses today.

Thought Poets Society would like today's stiff test at HQ, the valuable york race 6f when staying on better than anything having raced prominently and getting tapped for toe in today's class (first 5 all won since).Handled soft at chester keeping on again late when headed over 5f.Yes managed to scrape a win at HQ over the minimum but to me that was in spite of conditions and the class was the key. You would think at first glance that this race may be a bit hot but that york run is in the back of the mind still.

This conditions mix today could be just the ticket and the low weight may really help in conditions.

It's certainly not a confident pick but 17/1 worth a poke, probably last chance to land a race like this if hunch is correct that stern test will suit now.

2:45 Poets Society, current odds 18.0

like so many if the hunch is wrong, he's probably out with the washing!

4:35 Pontefract

Morning Suit current odds 6.6 (£20)

A good batch of runners yesterday a couple of which were revived, most ran very good races and this one was pulled out of a HQ hcp.

No massive reason to think this one will come back to form today apart from a gut feeling, to me it looks like 10f on decent ground would be worth a go.There should be some pace here despite the small field.I'm not convinced about Lomu settling over this trip but hopefully SDS can stalk on Morning Suit and they will come back to him in the straight, this sort of finish should suit over this trip, it's last run here was bizarre as got a tardy start and only got going far too late.

mj had a good winning 3yo the other day, with the ground coming just right for it on the day. overall you know when
the time is right to follow this trainer. tracking his runners everyday is pointless, if his horses have a bad season
its mission impossible following his runners. goodluck
