A good card with a smashing mares race to boot . Don of course will be the main attraction but what a little cracker that mares race is, if they all stand their ground it will make for a fine additive to the main event. Ballychorus, Bonny Kate Bitofapuzzle to name but 3 .Its not to long ago that SDC was the main point in making the journey, on Thurs he will be a second string , a competitive h/cap hurdle with some old guys taking on the younger brigade ,a good Hunters Chase to end the day , lets hope the weather is kind to them ...

I backed Ballychorus at Leop @ 29/1 on here, she was sure to be involved in the finish till topping up at the last ,the same was true at Navan.

Just a small word of caution.Fletcher's Flyer ran terribly last week and I'm nearly sure both Harry Fry's runners were withdrawn last weekend having scoped badly..or I'm nearly sure that was the reason.

She's a thoroughly likeable mare who jumped well in Exeter but the possibility of some bug in the yard would temper enthusiasm.
Report pa lapsy January 13, 2016 10:31 AM GMT
I can't get over how big she is,very good mare that was flagged up before she ever ran on here by Tony.
With Bonny Kate and Ballychorus not running,it looks an open goal on form alone though Tolmi's post is noted.

For what its worth ,my take on a few tomorrow. Arkwhist in the 13.10. It seemed to take forever for this fellow to win a race, eventually the one he did win he won impressivly,not that it was any great shakes and with Cooper deciding to ride the mare tomorrow it seems this lad is the second string . Rose won well here the last day and the second franked the form on Sun,but I still  have visions of her bumper run were she didn't want to know , Arkwisht will have gained tremendous confidence from his win and is sure to go on the heavy, so on that basis I make him my selection...
Figurative is progressing nicely and should play a part in this,first time blinkers and first time in a handicap should work the oracle .
One who has stayed under the radar is , Mister First, he ran a cracker in a real good race at Punchestown,looking as if he would play a part in the finish between the last two before finishing a respectable 4th , sure to love the going and worth a fewquid e/w ...
All the best punters...
Report pa lapsy January 13, 2016 7:08 PM GMT
Poor enough punting card despite a classy couple of races.


Rebel Turn 1.40 EW 9/2 with PP.
Couldn't put anyone off Figurative on it's Limerick run,travelled well and quickened til no more to offer close home,a long gap back to the rest who were on terms on the home turn. Bit disappointing though he couldn't get the better of 109 rated Positive Approach.
I initially looked at Rebels Turns Tramore win as a case of last one standing but was quite impressed by the Limerick win and certainly on that evidence not worried by the 6lb,it was snug and would think The Pounds will be held again.
Rory O'Moore may set a good pace think that would certainly help  Rebel Turn's hold up style.
Of the rest i like Sydney Thompson as a horse but off the bones of a year,Diamond Caucois is a fascinating runner on paper and hard to quantify,trainer has similar types and have to go back to '12 for last winner.Find it hard to fancy Willies pair though they have been running in better.Most of the rest look out of form.

Not overly concerned with your opinion WR (under-statement) as you have just commended a poster's opinion (drivel) that consisted of all 13 horses horses in a race have   a chance of winning.

Disappointing to see you take so much satisfaction from a forumite losing a few quid on the Lingfield thread despite not voicing your opinion before the race. Straight in with the dagger after the race as the poster was still recuperating from his monetary loss.

2 stand out bets for me on the card tomorrow .

1.10 Westend Star 9/4

Really caught the eye when it wasnt off a yard under Jacques Ricou at Naas when a staying on 5 th , as a result was no price in the north on Stephens Day came home as it liked ... can see this fella progressing to be a 140 plus horse .... I don t think the mullins 2 would be in the highly thought off category down in clonsutton ... Moonbeg Rose while it won nicely here the last day was quite weak in the market while the horse that was 2 nd to arkwrisht in tramore was beaten 68 lengths the next day ..
I expect Westend Star to be favourite by the off time

2.40 Melbourne Lady ew w/o Bitofapuzzle and small bet straight ew 14/1

Agree Harry Frys taking a bit of a lull after an impressive run for the stable . like a lot of the big yards in the UK January can be quite.Still hard to see Bitofapuzzle not drawing here unless it runs a shocker.....Not a whole pile  between the rest on ratings but the one i think will give it most to do is Melbourne Lady ...Really liked her run at Naas the last day on her second run of the season over fences behind the very well fancied one of Barry Connells ... She was strong on the machine also and jumped real well galloping all the way to the line ...

Good to have you on board Dinglemick ,Westend Star was impressive indeed up north .
Report joevalue147 January 13, 2016 10:28 PM GMT
Looking forward to Westend Star tomorrow myself.  He was very highly rated in the McCain stable and I know this might not be saying much but the word was that nothing could go with this lad when he was trained there. Unfortunatley Westend Star never lived up to his homework on the track while with McCain but Gordon seems to have found the key to him and i'm hoping and expecting a big performance tomorrow. I watched him closely on both starts for Elliot and his run in Down Royal was impressive. Travelling powerfully all the way around in the bad ground and he put the race to bed very quickly. (Although granted a very poor race). He is back on the right track now obviously and could be really starting to fulfil his undoubted early point to point promise.
Report TellTheKing January 13, 2016 11:13 PM GMT
I echo the above sentiments from Dingle & Joe. To be honest I think Westend Star is gone by tomorrow. He was very eye-catching on his Irish debut where, having been out the back turning in, finished the race to very good effect with minimum assistance. Not sure how Gordon explained the race tactics to Jacque that day but I imagine it involved a strangling hand motion! He completed an easy task up the North with the minimum of fuss.

It’s hard enough to warm to Monbeg Rose. Her bumper run was most disappointing and I still wasn’t hugely taken with her Thurles win where she was getting the penalty concession from the two placed horses. I also dislike horses taking such a leap in trip particularly when she has a habit of running keen. Arkwhist has looked flat footed on a number of occasions. Think the Tramore win was flattering and it’s hard to forget a few other days when he looked like being involved in the finish but was quite tame at the end of his races. Doesn’t say much for him when Cooper has picked the mare.

There won’t be anything coming home as strongly as Westend Star in my book. To be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if Wes Hardin proves to be his biggest threat.

Agree with TTK. Both Mullins horses are useless. Wes Hardin has been running well in decent handicaps and will finish in the first two. Mullins pair are great lays!
