It’s swings and roundabouts anyway Jac. I’m a bit on tenterhooks just now as
I’ve got Toby Tree to be 1st round leader in the Irish Open at 125/1. He’s
finished his round and 1 off the lead at 4 under in 4th place. As long as
he’s in the 1st 7 I’m covered. I hoped he would get a birdie at the par 5
18th for joint leader but a par left him 1 off the lead. I don’t think many
can catch him now so I should be okay for the E/W place. The golf comes to
my rescue againSeptember 24, 2020 at 18:47 #1503147
Newmarket Mini Comp – Day 1 Round Up
Nick Walton leads on the first day of our competition with his 15/2 winner Ranch Hand .. 7.5 Points
and Grand Bazaar 4/7 .. 0.5 Points giving him .. 8 Points in Total .. well done Nick a great start.
Euroalien (Andre) scored 2 well earned points with 3 winners .. La Barrosa 4/7, Grand Bazaar 4/7 and Zoran 6/4 in the last race which is The Whip passed on year after year to the winner of this race and said to contain the hairs of the great Eclipse..well done Andre,look after that Whip until next year.
BigG had 2 winners La Barrosa and Grand Bazaar both 4/7 .. 1 Point and…
Sporting Sam also found a very eyecatching newcomer..Lost In Space 15/8 .. 1 Point Sam
Nathan just managed to get on the leaderboard with Zoran 6/4 again in the last race The Whip so will have to share ownership with Andre.
As for myself I should have known better than to change my reserve after what happened to Graham a few comps back, but I substituted my non runner with a losing selection and missed out on Lady Of Aran
Managed to scrape together 0.5 Points with Grand Bazaar 4/7.
Leaderboard to follow…

Thanks Jac, strange days racing. Some great racing on offer tomorrow and I am sure the cream will rise to the top while it will all turn sour for the early pace setter.September 24, 2020 at 22:43 #1503177
Well I’m hoping the tortoise will catch the hare tomorrow Nick, make the most of that lead and slip the field
I don’t know one end of a golf club from another but you certainly have a talent for picking those big price players that end up in the frame and as you say the golf certainly comes to your rescue..I hope some of my horses come to mine tomorrow. I’m of to sort them out.
Good luck for the 2nd day.

Thanks Jac, I needn’t have sweated, he finished 4th 1 shot behind the leaders. 125/1 1/5 7 places
boylesports. I hope he keeps going, he was 200/1 outright, powered up to 225/1 with Paddy Power.
That would make him choke on his conrflakesSeptember 24, 2020 at 23:18 #1503181
Hi all, I hope you have enjoyed the day. Sounds like you have been busy there big G, well done with the golf.
Thanks for doing the comp Triptych.
I’m back researching the bumper in Ireland tomorrow. A couple of interesting ones who could run into the places maybe. The big yards will be all out to ensure no slip ups again though.September 24, 2020 at 23:52 #1503182
Good luck with your bumpers Sam
A few more 20/1’s wouldnt go amiss here tomorrow.Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...September 25, 2020 at 00:24 #1503184EuroalienParticipant

Great job with the comp Jac – great write-up!! Three winners and 2 points – that’s kind of sad. It was a strange day. Well done for storming into the lead Nick!
Well done Graham, keep bashing Paddy P. Love the Ranch Hand pick
Off to work on my picks for Friday!September 25, 2020 at 01:06 #1503186EuroalienParticipant

A much better card today. I see Sea of Faith is going to run Jac! Hope she wins for us in the AP Comp, but edged her out for this comp. (Which I will probably regret in this comp). I forgot I had Lost in Space yesterday in the AP Comp @ 10/3. A small return, but a winner!
Here are my picks for Friday I didn’t have the guts to go with Zabeel Prince in the Grp 2 – should be a cracking race. Will Kameko bounce back, can Benbatl win?
1:15 Quintillus (Wahraan)
1:50 Arriviste **NAP** (Bizzi Lizzi)
2:25 Franconia (Sea of Faith)
3:00 Monday (Santosha)
3:35 Top Rank (Zabeel Prince)
4:10 Laafy (Loxley)
4:45 Make It Rain (Wild Hero)September 25, 2020 at 08:46 #1503195
1:15 Rainbow Fire /Roscioli
1:50 Lalania /Bizzie Lizzi
2:25 Antonia De Vega /Alphinista
3:00 Alba Rose / Nazuna
3:35 Top Rank / Tilzt
4:10 Golden Pass nap /Aloe vera
4:45 Mosakhar /AlqifaarSeptember 25, 2020 at 08:53 #1503196
Thanks for your choices Andre and good luck today.
Sadly Queen Daenerys is a non runner in the Muhaarar, she was my choice in the AP contest so I didn’t put up Sea Of Faith and now 11/1 could be a good play although. However, we are on the same wavelength in the race as Franconia is one of my list horses and I have to play her against SOF. For only 5 runners it’s a tricky contest.
Out this morning until early afternoon so getting these on early. I have put a few in that go against the grain but sticking with them….
1:15 Crossford (Quintillus))
1:50 Cloak Of Spirits (Fooraat)
2:25 Franconia **NAP** (Sea of Faith)
3:00 Alba Rose (Monday)
3:35 Benbatl (Kameko)
4:10 Laafy (Loxley)
4:45 Sarvan (Kattani)
I think there may be a few surprises today, have fun..JacThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...September 25, 2020 at 08:56 #1503197
