Dubai Dynamo has proved a profitable horse to follow this season and did us another favour today at the very generous price of 10/1. Ruth Carr is definitely a trainer to follow. Over the last couple of season’s I have followed a horse of hers called Moheeb that has done well for me.
Ruth Carr has an interesting runner tomorrow in Beckermet in the 3.25 at Catterick. Beckermet was trained by Roger Fisher and is having his first run foe his new stable tomorrow. Ruth Carr has done well with her acquisitions from other yards such as Raccoon and Ninth House and Beckermet could well recover some of his old form for his new handler. On his last start he was third behind Dubai Dynamo so the trainer should have a handle on the form. His last three wins have come in listed company and he runs here off a mark of 86 so the potential is there for him to put in a big run.
Staying with the racing in Yorkshire the 2.40 at Beverley is a tricky handicap with all 6 runners in with a chance. Veroon could be the value returning to 10 furlongs and on ground that will suit him. He is also a course and distance winner.
There will be big crowds at the Cartmel jumps meeting where Kingsmoss looks the best bet in the 8.40. Temple Place is an interesting runner in the 9.10. He has been done the rounds a bit and won as a two year old for Michael Bell at 20/1 and won a handicap at Chester at 50/1 when trained by Donald McCain.
High Standing goes well fresh and could win on his seasonal reappearance in the 2.00 at Haydock. Mister Manannan is potentially better than listed class. He is very quick and could be difficult to peg back in the 2.30.
For those interested in the names of racehorses Victoria Montoya is quite cleverly named. She is by High Chapparal which was the name of an old TV western series and one of the characters was called Victoria Montoya. She is not completely without a chance in the 3.00 despite a poor run last time out but Barshiba is the probably winner.
I have a short list of 3 for the 2 mile handicap at 4.45. Crackentorp was second to Hanoverian Baron (who was something of a good thing) at York a fortnight ago and with Ryan Moore booked to ride looks well worth considering. Hawk Mountain has a good record over staying trips but he does need decent ground so if the forecasted heavy rain arrives before the race if might blight his chance. The other one I like is Cosmic Sun for Richard Fahey. He won a big handicap at Royal Ascot last season beating Chiberta King. My other selections at Haydock are Main Aim (3.30) and Rock ‘N Royal (5.20)
Ameer was only beaten a head by Coordinated Cut in April and that form reads well after the Dante. He must have a good chance in the Newmarket 2.15. Ransom Note will be a warm order in the 2.45 but at the prices I am inclined to take him on. The potentially well handicapped Munsarim makes some appeal as do Business as Usual and San Cassiano who should both come on for recent runs. In the 3.20 Side Glance looks of interest, especially if the ground rides on the quick side.
In the 3.55 I like Rodrigo de Torres and Dafeef. Expensive purchase Mureb ran with promise on his only start as a juvenile and looks the one to be on in the 5.05.
The two I fancy in the 5.05 are Bollin Judith and Lombok.
Looking ahead to Sunday the two to concentrate on in the 2.55 are Swiss Dream and Mujrayaat while my selection in the 4.40 is Man of Action.
I won’t be able to ypdate thge site again until next Saturady. One horse to look out for over the next week is today’s Newcastle winner Comedy Act.
Thre are a few other handicappers to look out for. Suruor ran well at Chester from a bad draw and has a race in him. Best in small fields on fast ground. Mull of Killough ran well in the Lincoln at a time when the stable were out of form and there were excuses for his subsequent defeat. Big Noise was 5th in the Victoria Cup and has a race in him. Webbow will land a big field handicap when things drop right for him and he doesn’t have traffic problems. Fastnet Storm and Roker Park are others that I am monitoring.
