From this week I would like the wildcard used by the close of play on Friday. I will save Noc's for Saturday. So if you've posted your selection in the week and you're sweet on another one? Then feel free to use the wildcard. Just post on this thread with a little reasoning. Good luck this week lads. Btw, form figures of 121 would look nice.....Grin

canny start to the week for us, nice winner at 9/2 chavman

I’m going for an EW shot today, currently at 7/1,
WELL PLANTED – 4:25 Perth
Turned form upside down on penultimate run with a win in a 2m1½f novice hurdle and followed up with a decent effort back in handicap company over today’s C&D, finishing 1¼ lengths behind today’s fav., Jackhammer
I reckon should be thereabouts today in current form and with slight pull in the weights with the fav.

Struggled to find owt this week so today has to be the day. If this 5.04 race at Newbury was over 2 furlongs further I'd be having a right go on this horse. Having said that, if they go a good pace, may still well be good enough. Goes very well fresh so first run in 217 days not an issue. SINJAARI ew. GL all.
Report Whippin Piccadilly May 14, 2022 12:19 PM BST
Yours was a noner, wasn't it Sont? Go again, Sir. I see what you mean about the trip for Sinjaari. He does have a touch of class about him so he might get away it if they really push on up front. Like your one Swad. The jockey has only had one ride before but this horse goes well for such riders and Kevin Ryan wouldn't put him up if he didn't think he could do a job.  Plenty of money around for it Chav. I like one in that race too. Rolfe Rembrandt. Always thought he was a soft ground horse but he was a revelation on fast going LTO. I like 2 in the 2.45 Newbury - Mr Big Stuff who looks ahead of the handicapper and Wineglass Bay who I think will improve plenty for the step up in trip.
I'm still finalising my selection and Noc's wildcard. GL today chaps! Cool

Report onthehoy May 17, 2022 11:32 AM BST
As we need a few points to get near the leaders, I think it could be worth going for Sir Duke (EW) in the 1:30 Brighton (priced between 20 - 28 on oddschecker)

Has had 3 runs since changing yards, putting in a decent effort last time out in only his 2nd run on turf (2¼ lengths 3rd of 8 over 5½f, GF)
Down 2lbs for today’s run and stepping up in distance can hopefully see him at least make the first 3 at decent odds
Report Whippin Piccadilly May 17, 2022 12:55 PM BST
GL OTH. He's ran some OK races and like you say the handicapper dropping him 2lbs and the step up in trip might just see him run into the places. The 1.40 at Nottingham is a very interesting race. There's a couple in the race who will leave last season's form behind today and go well at big prices.......
Report onthehoy May 17, 2022 2:13 PM BST
No points from my selection, Sir Duke, for finishing 11th of 13 !

I only have 2 more selections running today, one is not worth putting up for this comp. at the short odds of 10/11 and I am still undecided about my other selection, Shaws Bridge – 5:33 Hexham (10/1), reverts to hurdling off a decent mark after some really poor efforts when sent chasing.
I’ll see what competition he is up against then decide whether to go for it or wait for later in the week (see how the opposition does!)

Tried to make it a stamina test on a horse who has suspect stamina at the trip? Strange ride! Nothing for me this evening. Will be looking at a couple from Kempton's evening card on Weds. Looks a very competitive card and the 2 I like have been priced up at 10s+

Gonna throw a speculative one in. Cherry Cola ew in the 4.30 Goodwood. Goshen, worthy fav, could easily throw a wobbly as has done before and is making the market. Cherry a 5lb pull with the 2nd fav Saratoga Gold (Mellow magic finished 2nd and has a 7lb claimer on today which is a worry) ffrom it's last run, and she won't mind any rain The trainer had a big priced winner earlier in the week. Doubts about the extra 2 furlongs but should stay it imo. Tis 25/1 at the mo which seems fair. GL

I will play my wildcard today and go for SPANISH STAR to take his 3rd win at Goodwood

Improved on 2nd run after a break with a 2¾ lengths 2nd of 8 over 6f (didn’t get the clearest of runs 1f out) - A 2 times winner at Goodwood, over 6f (Sft), has winning form over 7f (Gd)
remains on the same mark for today’s run (7f) and can, hopefully, go one better and get the better of the short priced favourite

He will be a place bet for me today (currently 2.62) but for this comp., as we need a few points, I will put him up as a win selection (8/1)

Spanish Star – 2:45 Goodwood
Report Whippin Piccadilly May 20, 2022 1:41 PM BST
I know what you mean HGS. Not many I've fancied this week myself. But today is looking much better (one form my notebook just slotted in) Noc messaged me and he's back from his Hols now so if you'd rather I let him use it tomorrow or you could could come up with one together? Let's see what we need points wise. But if yours and OTH go in today, it would make things a little easier for us. Grin Goshen has his going now but like you say, he can get out of bed the wrong way some days. Yours and SG (shouldn't really stay with his sire Mayson but he's improving for the step up in trip it seems!) can take advantage if he's not at it today. Like yours OTH, likes this track and he will relish the going. GL lads. Was going to put Lawful Command up...I posted about him winning with a bit up his sleeve LTO. I'm looking for something at an even bigger price though. GL lads.

Good day lads. Yes, Noc, there is plenty of competitive racing on today so there will be a few at a price going in...which ones though, that's the question! Looking at a few, Calling The Wind can take advantage at Goodwood if Lone Eagle isn't ready to fly today. We might need one at a bigger price though. Sows & G. Express in the last make plenty of appeal but some other shrewdies have ruin their prices! Outgate & City Runner both looed a spot of value this morning at the EP's at Haydock and I've already had a 1pt on each at 11s & 25s. Any thoughts on the day's racing, Noc?
