    CJ Cup

    It starts in 1 min but I got mine on earier this morning

    Colin Morikawa 14/1 (25/1 1st round leader market)

    This is his home course and he’s taken a week off to practice for it.
    He should be be favourite in my eyes. 1st class chance

    Tyrrell Hatton 40/1 (40/1 1st round leader market)

    Missed the cut on his last outing, but he’s a class ball striker
    and this course should suit him well

    Sebastian Munoz 175/1 (100/1 1st round leader market)

    Obviously at these odds he’s risky. He’s missed the last 3 cuts but he had
    plenty of top 10s through the year and was 9th in this last year. I think
    he could outplay his odds.

    That’s me for this week chaps, I see Raymo is AWOL Darren, he was flying last
    week so I expect he’ll show up at some point. Best of luck :good:

    Andalucia Masters

    Robert MacIntyre 45/1 (45/1 1st round leader market)

    John Catlin 55/1 (66/1 1st round leader market)

    Santiago Tarrio 80/1 (70/1 1st round leader market)

    It’s another late call so just the bare bones. The CJ Cup in the morning.

    My Son headed back down south today so I’ll catch up with my week 23 report.

    A particularly quiet week with only 1 horse, Chindit, who had the unenviable task
    of taking on the brilliant Al Suhail at Newmarket on Friday, adding any points. He
    had to settle for 3rd place which added 1.50 Points to both Forestrangers and Mike
    Walsh. Well done guys, they all count :good:

    It’s going to be a lot different this week with Champions Day in the offing. A host of
    stable entries will be heading to Ascot and there could be major shifts in the league.
    Stradivarius and Truesham are down at the moment to go head to head again. I’m not
    sure that both or either will take their place, it’s asking a lot after 2m 4f in a
    swamp at Longchamp 2 weeks ago.

    The Champions Sprint stakes sees Art Power, Creative Force, Dragon Symbol and Thunder Moon
    take each other on. Thunder Moon has been a disappointment having had great expectations
    at the start of the season, but the other 3 all have huge shouts.

    The British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes has a quartet of interest with Albaflora, Love,
    Search For A song
    and Snowfall all entered at this stage (Snowfall and Love also have entries in
    the Champion Staakes). It’s only 13 days since Snowfall ran in the Arc, I’d be surprised to see
    her turn up after such a hard race. They are all going to have to work extra hard if they are
    going to take Free Wind on, she looked a bit of a monster last time out at Doncaster. There was
    barely a fag paper between La Petite Coco and Love last time out at the Curragh Stakes, it’s a bit
    off a toss up again.

    The QEII Stakes is another head scratcher with Palace Pier and Baaeed at the head of the market.
    Plenty of others from our stables will be trying to upset the apple cart, namely Lord Glitters,
    Master Of The Seas, Alcohol Free
    and Mother earth. So far nothing has got past Baaeed who looked
    impressive at Lonchamp. Having said that Palace Pier is as tough as teak and dug deep to beat
    the equally tough Poetic Flare at Deauville. I think this is the race of the day.

    The Qipco champion Stakes is the last Group 1 of the day, and I think there could be a couple
    at least who don’t show up here after recent tough races. Stable wise we have Abbeybb, Al Aasy,
    Mishriff, Love, Adayar, Bolshoi Ballet
    and Snowfall. I’d be surprised to see either or both
    Adayar and Snowfall after the Arc. They would need to be bouncing at home to get chanced here
    and at the end of a season I’m not so sure they want this. I think Love will go for the
    Champions Fillies and Mares and is it possible for Adayar to be at his best? I’d be taking
    him on and Mishriff looked back to his best last time out at York but is short enough. I
    couldn’t have been more impressed with a horse than I was with Al Aasy earlier on in the season.
    The weels have come off a bit since then but if he, like Mishriff did, finds his earlier
    form I think he’s a decent shout at 20/1.

    Still 71 entered for the Balmoral and it’s far to hard to work out from here so I’ll
    leave that one alone.

    Best of luck on Saturday everyone, it’s sure to rumble the league up a bit :good:

    Unfortunately Darren there’s just no stopping Sungjae, he’s played an
    unbelievable round, 9 birdies and no bogies with 2 to go. Wolff’s
    2 bogies on the back nine, with 4 to go, has kind of blown his chance.

    I’m no better with Burns who just couldn’t get it going earlier. He’s
    picked up a couple of birdies late on but too little too late :unsure:

    Thanks Raymo, and thankfully we are all up there in the US.
    Burns 1 off the lead and your man Hadwin not far behind. Darren
    is double handed with Wise and Wolff right up there too.

    Your man Cabrera Bello just gone to the top of the leaderboard
    in Spain Raymo. Darren has Arnaus and I’ve got Bland, both just
    a couple back.

    Definitely all to play for :good:

    Well the E/W with Candleford saw me break even so it wasn’t
    a tragedy but not a lot to write home about :unsure:
