Diary: September 24 2011


I received a “hot tip” today but I didn’t pass it on which was just as well as it came 7th of 10 at Worcester. We did at least break our losing run thanks to Fire Fighter a 11/8 favourite at Wolverhampton who won as he pleased under Robert Winston. Fire Fighter is a rapidly improving sort that could win again.

The big betting race tomorrow is the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket(3.50). With 35 runners it is worth betting on more than one runner. Circumvent (28/1) a recent Goodwood winner, Sagramor (14/1) winner of a big handicap at Royal Ascot and the potentially well handicapped Riggins (33/1) would be my three against the field.).

The front two in the betting will be hard to beat in the 2.35 but at a bigger price Shumoos could be each way value.

In the 5.00 Striking Spirit is the complete outsider but is coming down the weights and has an each way chance.

In the 3.55 at Haydock both Lyric Street and Motivado could be open to further improvement.

Looking for an outsider in the 5.05 Mull of Killough and Light from Mars are worth considering.

At Chester Mashaaref has the form to figure in the 4.10 while Courageous continues to creep down the ratings in the 5.20.

My thanks to the artist Sally Martin for today’s picture.
