Update



Well I didnt do too bad today with Lost in Paris winning and I'm hoping to do a little better tomorrow.

At Epsom we have the Dash which I have covered in the previous blog post below, I think Fallasteen gets a decent weight pull with both Captain Dunne and Masamah and out of the three I would be inclined, on thinking about it, to just favour him over Captain Dunne but there's going to be nothing in it and it will come down to luck and who breaks best and whether they can get a decent position etc.

The 6f race later on I'm going to give a miss as nothing really stands out for me, although I suppose Fallon on Joseph Henry is interesting at 14/1.

Up at Musselburgh the high numbers dominated todays sprint and I would imagine things will go the same way tomorrow, I highlighted Barnet Fair after his extraordinary run last time out(watch it if you can) and he could go well in the 2.05 over 5f and he probably has Bold Bidder to beat.

Later in the afternoon at 3.40 seventeen line up for the Scottish Sprint Cup and Doctor Parkes (15) looks to be a worthy fav, he seems to have improved this year and he could lead all the way from Hazelrigg (14) and Favourite Girl (11). Four and five year olds have a good record in the race winning 9/10 and the draw often favours those near the stands rail and it was confirmed again today so its Doctor Parkes for me. If your superstitious stall 6 has produced the winner 3 times in the last ten years and Courageouus is berthed in that this time and at 25s you could back worse. Fol Hollow usually runs at Epsom on this day but he's been sent up here this time and he will get the Fanning treatment, he is 6lb below his last winning mark and has the best of the draw in 17 if he gets a good break.

Triple Aspect runs in the 6.40 at Baden-baden, just in case you havent had enough by then.

Finally and unfortunately due to issues with blogger I am unable to comment as myself on any of my posts at the moment.

  1. Masamah and Confessional are both being well backed for the Dash. The latter is well in with both Fallasteen and Beat the Bell from their running in a Beverley Handicap back at the begining of April, but Confessional had the best of the draw there and Fallasteen had to come late after his blindfold at the start was removed late and he missed the break.

    Arctic Feeling now runs here instead of Musselburgh and has the assistance of last years winning jockey from stall 15. With Crimea not running it moves Fallasteen 1 stall closer to the rail.

  2. That was a good start to the day Barnet Fair beating Bold Bidder at Musselburgh.

  3. Well Captain Dunne broke better than Falasteen and appeared to lead throughout and win narrowly at the line.

  4. Blogger is probably getting over-subscribed and I'm considering a swap-over to Wordpress. Keep up the good work.
