Novae Bloodstock Insurance Ben Marshall Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 1m
Godolphin as often is the case this end of the season have turned up mob handed into a listed race at HQ and, it’s with Ecliptic, that I’m sure their hopes will lie. This boy still has some seriously untapped potential , impressive on his come back run at Salisbury last time out he certainly looked to have retained the best part of his potential as a 2yo and is well up to putting this listed race on his CV. However, I feel there is a chance to Confront him tomorrow (terrible).
It is interesting to see Confront make his way out onto a racecourse again, one would have thought his duties were over. He has always had ability but lacked enough to be top class and fell short often of his higher targets set for him by his trainer. But he has shown he is still capable this year winning a good handicap at York under top weight back in June on his seasonal appearance. He stands out as being the only horse who is likely to go on and make the running and that could land him a real advantage over this course. Having watched all the races run over the Rowley mile over the last couple of months it has played into many a runners strengths to get out on a lead. Indeed, Secrecy was undone by this very factor by Inler last time out only 10 days ago. He has a good record running fresh and off a break and front running could really give him a big chance.

Disappointed with the run of Confront, unlikely he would have won under any tactics today but it was odd not to see him made any use ofOctober 29, 2011 at 07:37 #374636
Home of Racing Handicap Cl3 1m
A very puzzling race to solve with so many runners looking potentially in with chance. The runner that could be worth siding with though sits at the top of the card,
. He boasts a fair record running fresh and if returning in something like the form he was showing when last seen on the racecourse he would hold a massive chance. Of course he’ll need to come back on top of his game but this isn’t any tougher, if not easier, than the races he was running in earlier in the year.

Best fresh, wins on his race debut and winter re-appearence in January. Both wins have come at the course, race looks likely to be run to suit and stable in good form currently.
2pt win 7/1 general
Very reliant on a strong pace, looks likely to get that today, will be finishing strongly hopefully gets the splits from gate 1.

A little foot note that Keith Dalgleish trained three winners on the card at Wolverhampton tonight and appears to have his house in good order at present, with one week left of the flat turf season he may well spring up a couple of winners.October 31, 2011 at 12:09 #375161

Surprised to see Beyond as such a short priced favourite. I had built this race around King Of The Knight. Think he is the most likely winner but of the two selected I think they been signficantly under valued.
E Major showed big improvement winning at Fontwell on his last start and though put up 11 lbs in the handicap he looks likely to get a similarly run race to repeat something like that run. The stable weren’t really showing form in the summer when he was running before, but, Renee Robson has started well in October and looks to have her string in good order at this stage of the season.
First Fandango I just felt would come on for his last start, he was looking one paced as he turned in and if not hampered by a faller at the last probably would have got second place. This step up in trip looks like it could suit and bring about a bit of improvement from this still very lightly raced hurdler. He’s rated up 79 on the flat and isn’t short of ability and looks largely over priced with the stable running in such good form right now.October 31, 2011 at 16:09 #375199
Big run from First Fandango to hold a good 2nd but two out seeing King Of The Knight tanking along it looked game over!November 1, 2011 at 12:15 #375356
Shown improved form at 5f this term and dropped back in trip from a good draw will go well today.
Can’t tell you how much I hate Estonia! Has got the better of me one way or another too many times!. Crimson Queen ran ok, got a good spot and travelled ok, can see her winning races at 5f over the winter
5/1 Betfred(bog), Totesport
Reared as the gates opened and ended too far behind and game over once that far back over the 10f at Kempton
Good return to form last time out in second time blinkers, was front running and there is a lot of pace on in this race but doesn’t have to front run and looks a race he is well capable of winning now handicapped well on best, a lot in favour.

An open looking handicap, a race you would struggle to write any horse off in and plenty come here with chances. It’s the outsider Kakapuka though who’s chance looks significantly under estimated. He completely failed to handle the course at Epsom last time out, if you watch back his tapes you’ll see his jockey at pains to keep him on a straight line continually looking to lug left to the far rail and eventually hung across to the far side and that was where he stayed eased in the final furlong. Prior to that he had won well at Kempton over seven furlongs, that was only his second all weather run and up to a mile for the first time tonight and still unexposed on the pollytrack there could well be more to come, he has to negotiate a wide draw today out in stall eleven but there is no way this horse should be the outsider of the field.
