    Thank you Jac,
    yes I decided to raise my stakes a bit ;-). It was really unusual for me that I ended up lucky in such a hot finish :yahoo:
    To be honest I didn’t trust any of the Godolphins yesterday, but no doubt they will soon strike back!

    Hi Jac, I got another one for you:
    Mythical Madness runs at Wolve on Monday in R6, this time I have nothing to complain about the Jockey ;-) ,
    as Kirby is on board.
    Also Watersmeet appears in R4, but I think of taking him on with the Boy in Blue,
    which is at least some reference to this thread..

    Both with good chances Hein thanks :good: :good: I hadn’t got to Mondays cards yet and will have a better look tomorrow.
    Was really hoping Mythical Madness would have won his last race when he was unexposed and a big price but hoping he’ll still be a backable price on Monday.
    Dear old Watersmeet always runs a genuine race and will also have a look at your very appropriate selection too Hein..Best of luck. Jac :rose:

    I’m not playing Festival of Ages, Jac.
    Price is too short, rivals are too strong :unsure:
    Good luck to you, if you support your darlings :good:

    @Hein
    Can’t blame you for not playing Festival of Ages at the price Hein even though Adam Kirby was on the horse that beat him last time Stargazer.

    Just had a look at those two races and can’t see Watersmeet getting the better of FOA after his beating last time out and what a massive horse FOA is he made Watersmeet look like a pony.
    Think he was a bit unbalanced on the outside for quite a bit of his last race and was doing some best work at the finish but not enough to catch the winner. However I think both FOA and Watersmeet will not be fast enough for Aircraft Carrier who won his last race at Chelmsford very comfortable having come from last to first in just 2 furlongs sprouting wings and running on strongly at the finish, he looks a real powerhouse and he is a true 4yo being born on 13th January 2015. He’s beautifully bred by Declaration of War out of a Machiavellian mare.

    Sticking with my Mythical Madness in the 7.15 even though he finds it hard to string two good races together the 7/2 was too tempting against the price of the favourite Michele Strogoff who has never managed to win above Class 4. I think MM will find this an easier race to win than his last one, fingers crosssed.

    WIN – Aircraft Carrier 5/2 (6.15 Wolverhampton)
    WIN – Mythical Madness 7/2 (7.15 Wolverhampton)

    Small Double on both :good:

    Best of luck if you do decide to have a small dabble Hein.

    Thanks for the link to Thursdays runners nw :good:

    Lots of double entries at the moment so will have a look nearer the time.
    Going to keep it to about 2 max 3 races on Thursday I think until the season gets a little more
    underway…Jac :rose:

    Great choices, Jac :good:
    Surprise is that I took 9/2 for Aircraft Carrier last night after I wrote you;
    as I saw his last races and was impressed by his power and speed.
    Also his form exploded after getting away from AOB :yes:
    I hope he will land the blow for us, for the double I am not brave enough today,
    but fingers crossed for you with MM :heart:

    Impressive all the way win from Michele Strogoff.

    MM ran as expected following a good run with a bad one, he’s hard to follow now but Aircraft Carrier saved the day. :good: Jac

    Thank you nwalton!
    I would agree that these carnival entries are not too motivating,
    so I can keep my powder dry for Blue Point hopefully showing up in 4 weeks.
