ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a strange game that someone like Pat doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t get more winners/horses. A real horseman with years of experience who knows how to get them fit and ready for a race. Ex footballers and people with little background with horses start up and attract owners and clock up lots of winners. Is it a case of who you know rather than what you know?<br>
Went to Sandown today and missed your 12.01 post but a big thank you is in order for sharing. Small crowd at Sandown. lots of men in red hair and leather dresses with black fishnet tights and ladies boots,stag parties I presume, also a man dressed as an Ostrich, normality was resumed when I spied the well known Andrew Parker Bowles resplendent in Brown trilby yellow waistcoat , tweed jacket and inbred look as if he is missing Camilla.

Yes, we have two options at Kempton, a 0-85 on Mar 31st and the Queens Prize on Apr 7th, both over 2M.
The latter is an 86 – 105 rated handicap, so the choice will depend on how the handicapper reacts to this win. My guess is that he’ll go up 6 or 7lbs to 82/83. If that’s right, we’ll take our chance in the Apr 7th race and hope it doesn’t attract anything rated above 100.
Thanks to everyone that has offered congratulations – as the owner I can safely say my only contribution was to pick the race, which was a no brainer given the lack of alternatives.
