    Oh no Pitchers Point didn’t act at all well on the turf :scratch: unable to quicken.
    Dublin Pharaoh very impressive.

    All down to Rose Grey in the lucky last and have taken some 7/2 win as she has drifted a bit. Fingers crossed. Jac :good:


    @nick

    Unlucky with Lavenders Blue today but at least 3rd gets a small win return. :good:

    Ouch..not to be today and apologies Andre I hope you didn’t stake too much on the Doyler double that wasn’t to be.
    :wacko:

    Having watched the results over the past week and taking into account the defeats of Pinatubo,Ghaiyyath, Stradivarius and Limato I get the feeling that we are now treading new ground and that lightly raced horses are coming to their own as we head toward the backend of the flat season. So I”m going to try to look further than my old favourites who have served me so well up to now and look for the new kids on the block that are running fresh and coming home at good EW prices.
    I did say ‘try’ :scratch:

    It won’t be easy to find them but I bet over the next 3 to 4 weeks a fairly lightly raced colt or filly will come to the forefront of betting for next years Classics. :good:

    1’m going to have a go at finding him/her but it won’t be easy especially not being at the races and it usually occurs around the future Champions meeting at Newmarket when a looked after horse comes good:

    Good luck. :bye: Jac

    Found it one of the hardest seasons for a long while Jac.
    They crammed in so much quality early season that now we maybe seeing(as you say) a few horses going over the top.

    Talking with my son (who does the sprints for us) he is on board with you Darren in Gold Cup.

    Hate calling him a bit of a rogue but Desert Encounter interests me with sky bet (Newbury) 9/2 . Played ew 1,2.

    Good luck :good:

    Agreed Nick a very hard season indeed. :yes: Think Godolphin have been very hit and miss with their newcomers at Newmarket this season they have had more success in France and Germany this season chasing the higher prize money. Top trainers lke Gosden suffering also with owners transferring their horses abroad for the same reason. It’s been a season like no other but we’re still here trying to sort them out ;-) Jac

    Love Desert Encounter :good:

    Ha ha had to laugh aftet all I said about not following my old favourites..

    GUESS WHO’S RUNNING TOMORROW NATHAN?

    :heart: So Beloved :heart:
    4.30 Ayr – 11/2

    Unbelievable price considering he hasn’t won a race for 4 years but have to take into consideration that he has been dropped down to Class 4 when he has been a Group contender.
    Would love to see the ‘tall handsome fella’ win a race and this is probably his best chance (if he knew it) and David O’Meara has put Ray Dawson on board.

    What do you think Nathan and Graham ?? ..Is tomorrow his day or will Paddy be grinning from ear to ear waiting to bag our cash. B-) Jac

    No worries Jac. I followed you on ADV for the AP Comp :)

    It’s been a very tough season to find winners, couldn’t agree more!

    Going with my lightly raced horses theme today and taking a chance on ..

    DUBAI ICON .. 3.00 Ayr .. 4/1

    Last seen at Meydan 27th February when he ran 1/2 length 2nd to Simsir in a good class race over 1m2f where he was only headed in the closing stages.
    Hoping this will prove easier for him and the boys in blue can get one home for us today. :good:

    So Beloved is out to 8’s now Jac,
    I’m waiting for him to hit that price with the firms going 4 places before I go in each way
    The closest he has got in terms of beaten distance this year is in his only race over 7f although I’m not sure if he is better over a mile as tends to stay on late in the day
    I think this is the 1st time So Beloved has run at Ayr and also has a new jockey on board in Ray Dawson who takes 5 off. He won on Waliyak the other week if my memory serves me right and I thought he look a good little jockey in the making.

    Thanks Nick :good: Both the ‘Deserts’ are good horses.


    @Nathan

    I’m doing the same as you Nathan

    I didn’t take the 11/2 So Beloved and now at 8/1 that looks a more solid EW bet..going to wait and see how Dubai Icon gets on before I do him..best of luck..Jac :good:

    I need all the help I can get in the AP contest Jac – dead last by a long way!

    I like your “lightly raced” idea Jac, it’s all about finding the right one :scratch: Hope Dubai Icon romps home for you. I see he’s down to 10/3 in some places…. Keep an eye on Glasses Up in the same race, he’s a 4 time C&D winner at Ayr out of 5 runs.

    Good luck with all your bets today everyone.
