Thats the only way to describe Kempton last Saturday and itall started so badly !
Id put up 5 horses on the Tommo Hotline premium rate lastSaturday remember you can get it on a non premium rate number if you becomeone of my Private Clients and the first A Media Luz looked home and hosedwhen going clear at the second last seemingly full of running. But he wasalmost going too fast and couldnt get his undercarriage up in time and down hewent to my groans.
But I always look on the bright side and A media luz whomust surely have won is basically a winner without a penalty so look on it asmoney lent not lost and we will get it back with interest next time!!
Things took a turn for the better when Nadiya de la Vega dont ask me what it means either! won the novice chase in the style of ahorse who is going places.
And talking of going places they are talking about apossible tilt at the Totesport Trophy Hurdle at Newbury next month for whichshe is a 16-1 shot!
She could be interesting back over hurdles as she has a highcruising speed but I like the 14-1 available about her for the Jewson atCheltenham as the step up in trip should suit her well.
Also remember on Saturday she won despite Barry Geraghtylosing his iron at the 2nd last that was some ride!
Then Binocular at 13 8 she was 3 1 at lunchtime showed what a class act he is by doing us a great turn in the Xmas Hurdle.
Id heard that 2 days earlier hed schooled exceptionallywell and that made my mind up to back him.
He is now on course for the Champion and at this stage willtake the world of beating and would suggest backing him now ante post but youmight like to hang on to Saturday because Im off up to Haydock for Channel 4where Peddlers Cross runs in the Champion Hurdle Trial.
Peddlers Cross comes from the Donald McCain stable and youknow I like the horse and the stable a lot!
Then it was the turn of Long Run 13-2 into 9-2 to do usanother good turn this time in the King George.
I thought he was outstanding in the way he won and I thoughtthe galloping dentist Sam Waley Cohen gave him a great ride.
Make no mistake this is an outstanding horse and I believehis is going to push Imperial Commander all the way in the Gold Cup atCheltenham.
However remember Imperial Commander is virtually unbeatablearound his local track and at this moment in time is the one they all have tobeat in the Gold Cup.
Then I was hoping our big bet in the Lanzarote would reap agenerous reward but although Palomar ran a super race at 9 to 1 and looked likewinning at the second last he had to be content with 3rd place at 9 1!
Still although disappointed I know the horse ran his verybest so we have to take that on the chin!
Bankable looks a real banker next time out!
He was so unlucky at Meydan last Thursday when Ryan Mooredecided to keep him on the inside rail and found his way blocked until it wastoo late and he finished fast to grab 4th.
With a clear run he would surely have won and must be backednext time he runs in Dubai!
Ive got the word about a Newmarket horse that should be outin the next few weeks and this should be banker material first time out!!!
Dont forget you can either become a private client and getall the tips on a non premium rate number or join my Pay as you Win servicewhere as you can see the strike rate has been incredible.
The flat season is getting closer- so is Cheltenham now isthe time to JOIN !
