    -0.5

    Court Artist- OK but not 1st string. Fair play to Cap Soleil for another win

    Didn’t see Coney Island race but sounded impressive giving fair chunk of weight away. Beat my selection roundly.

    Harry- not bad, not going to win the Stayers

    Frodon- ran and jumped well; beaten by nice horse with more scope

    Divin Bere- not easiest of passages through the race but wouldn’t have been placed anyway.

    Onwards and upwards (well realistically not upwards…just bumping along around zero ;-) )

    Trying to avoid betting at the moment as not doing well but had to have an interest in I Just Know 2.35 Catterick at 4-1 0.5pt win.
    I liked the look of him at Ayr last season and he’s a decent size so should be up to plenty of weight. Only concern is slight tendency to jump right but other than that is decent jumper I think.

    Thanks VtC, I know putting minimal stake on a co favourite is hardly the tip of the century but I was glad not to miss him as I’ve been looking out for him.
    I’ve also been watching for the return of Lucinda Russell’s Big River, initially pinpointed by someone on TRF (was it yourself or robnorth?) as one to watch. I’m not put off by the heart problem as I think they can come round very well from that (Denman and Sprinter Sacre being good examples). His entry in the Dipper, although he didn’t run, shows they must think a bit of him.
    1.50 Warwick Big River 4-1 b365 2pts win

    Put 0.5pt EW on
    Topofthegame at 8s for Lanzarote and
    On the Road at 14s for Warwick Classic – he only carried my money as far as the 4th in Welsh GN but will give him another go

    That’ll do for today

    -9 after a 0.5pt EW losing bet on Fine Rightly in the Peter Marsh
    Hope I can get back on track tomorrow i the Kinloch Brae with American Tom, a horse I really liked the look of last year. He gets 8lb from A Toi Phil and if he stays the extra 4f, has a great chance. Woodland Opera is a nice horse but Jessie said he doesn’t stay 2m4f on soft/heavy so he’s there for a spin and some place money.

    2.50 Thurles American Tom 11/8 5pt Win

    I guess American Tom doesn’t stay 2m4f on heavy either.

    No bets for a while so I’ve put half a point on a Cloudy Dream/Politologue double today just for interest, putting my faith in race fitness.

    -14.5…duo beaten by very worthy winners

    Grand Nat Trial Haydock Silsol 20s 5pts win

    Win only for a change. I’m going to give up EW betting for Lent…how long will that last…this race might cut up and the 3 places look more attractive…
