The Red and Mackay Handicap over 6f at Windsor went to the Hannon/Hughes combination with GETCARTER, however once again it was the performance of one of the horses behind that got you thinking. ANNE OF KIEV had been reported to be in good form at home and in my opinion she was very unlucky here not to finish a lot closer. She was denied a clear run on more than one occasion during the race and she had to switch twice and weave her way through to finish a never nearer 7th. She is currently rated 75 and looks as though she is capable of winning off that mark granted suitable conditions. It was good ground here but being by Oasis Dream she may want some firm in the description.
I have been a follower of racing from an early age with my first memory being trying to pick the winner of the Derby in 1965. This interest has moved on to having shares in horses which has resulted in wins at the Dubai Festival, with Turn on the Style, and more recently with Tatlisu in the Ayr Silver Cup.
This blog is primarily about sprinters which I have always had an interest in and it will cover most 5f and 6f races throughout the season.
