I couldn’t find any double figured priced runners I would be confident about, but I reckon we should get a good run out of Cap Du Mathan - 3:25 Sandown, but is only priced about 5/1, which will, hopefully, add to the big priced winner that I am sure one of you will come up withGrin

I've gone for Orbaan in the 3.45 Haydock. It looked as if David had found the key to this horse last season and he ran a string of fine races, including 2 very unlucky races at York & Goodwood. David, certainly does well with these old boys and I wouldn't put it pass him if he puts a win in listed race on the board before the end of the season. The horse needs a decent pace and he should get that with Biggles & Gweedore taking them along. It could be the horse needs a few races to put him spot on? But at the prices he's worth chancing in what is a really competitive race

Good day lads. What's everyone backing for the 2000gns? It looks as if Adian has yet another very strong hand in the race. Chaldean should be there about's at the finish and I'm planning on backing Noble Style in running if I see him settle. He's not the easiest to train and he looks a bit of tricky ride but I honestly think he's the horse with the most ability in the race. It might be that 6f or even 7f will be his ideal trip but he wasn't stopping at York and it's worth finding out early in the season if he'll stay the mile or not.

The big sprint on the card looks as competitive as a race as you can get. Any horse that needs a strong pace to aim at will most certainly get that here! So I was looking at 2 old boys who love a big field and fast pace....Chairmanoftheboard and an real old favourite in Summerghand fit the bill perfectly. They will of course need plenty of luck in running.

Over at Goodwood, I notebooked Quantum Impact after his win at Newbury on his final 2yo start. In my notes I wrote that he probably didn't really enjoy the heavy going but his likable way of racing and the touch of class he has got him through it. I think he could turn out better than an handicapper. Today will tell us more.

Btw, it good to see Totnes win at Lingers the other day. Nothing went right for he but she still won with plenty in hand. It was only a class 5 but I really do believe she'll be listed class by the end of the season. Good luck today lads. And especially to the The dealer with his tough, soft ground loving mare. I hope she gets another rise in the handicapper after Sunday! Grin

Not around this weekend, hoping for a good 2 days at the races. I've got the Derby down to 2 horses. Had some bits on Passenger in the Ante post market and a saver on Arrest. I will be going in again on Passenger at the course. Loved his debut win and he comes out of the Dante with lots of credit. I think that race might have taught him more than if he'd got a clear run and won comfortablely (which I'm confident he would have done) He's travelled strongly in his both his races and looks a well balanced type. I get the feeling connections have always thought very highly of him and If he gets the trip? He'll win the Derby. Hopefully Swad will remember to post a selection and to be fair he's done so the last couple of weeks. I hope Chewy or OTH can post a wildcard if needed. Good luck this weekend lads
