    They’ve watered at Sandown so there’s good to soft about. Ridiculous.

  2. Mike N says:

    According to Mick Fitzgerald.

  3. Pollyowls says:

    A fabulous day’s racing to end the season…
    At Sandown I hope Menorah and Altior win – as for the Bet365, I’d love to see Le Reve win back at his beloved Sandown.. I just worry the trauma of his injury may leave a mark on the old boy. The Young Master won’t be far away.. but I think it’s either Doing Fine or Present Man for the win.
    Over in Ireland, two good staying chases. In the 3m6f contest, I like both of the English challengers – Warrantor and Courtown Oscar. Although Raz De Maree has been unlucky this spring, I think the ground may be too fast for him – Tulsa Jack looks best of the Irish.
    In the Pat Taaffe, Sizing Codelco could defy top weight as the Tizzard horses are running so well. Sandymount Jack also interests me from another in-form stable.
    Sandown 2.25 – Menorah; 3.00 – Altior; 3.35 – Doing Fine
    Punchestown 3.10 – Warrantor; 5.00 – Sandymount Jack

  4. Mike N says:

    Have you backed any of this lot Polly? ;)

  5. Mike N says:

    A horse winning a graded chase at age 12? Quite rare. Maybe Traffic or Josses can do him this time. Dunno.

  6. Mike N says:

    Wow that was awesome. Jumped them ragged.

  7. sampy says:

    Fabulous horse, happy retirement Menorah

  8. Pollyowls says:

    Only a little Lucky 31… and off to a good start!!

  9. Corbiere says:

    Bet 365
    I am with you Polly Doing Fine & Present Man for me in 3.35 Sandown

    Altior 3.00 Sandown
    Apple’s Jade 3.50 Punchestown
    in a win Double

    Bless The Wings & Courtown Oscar in 3.10 Punchestown

    Apple’s Jade win single 3.50 Punchestown

    Mega Fortune 4.25 Punchestown

    Air Horse One 5.35 Punchestown

  10. Mike N says:

    They should name a race after Menorah at Sandown. Would be fitting now he’s retired.

  11. Pollyowls says:

    He was very novicey.. but Altior was way too good today…
    2 down, 3 to go..!!

  12. sampy says:

    awful race

  13. Kevski111 says:

    How Vyta lost that one I don’t know! still good 2nd.. trends take a bashing again.

  14. Pollyowls says:

    It might not have been a brilliant standard Sampy… but it was a heck of a finish..!!

  15. Pollyowls says:

    Doing Fine didn’t jump a fence.. and still only got beat about 3 lengths.. looks like he needs further

  16. mike campo says:

    Vyta lost that because Stu picked it !
    Close though and better than he’s done for a long, long time,

  17. sampy says:

    It was the finish I was referring to Pollyowls, about 8 within half a length of each other. One of the reasons I don’t watch flat racing as I don’t enjoy that sort of thing as a spectacle. Messy.

  18. moari says:

    So angry with myself as i always start with the outsider and work in ruling them out if i can’t find anything to convince me and as much as i looked at what harry had done i could find nothing to make me back him.One that got away

  19. Pollyowls says:

    Picked the wrong one…!! Should have stuck with Team Tizzard…

  20. mike campo says:

    O’Faolains Boy ran another shocker today. Looks a broken horse, out of love of the game and I’ll ignore from now on unless it changes stables.

  21. mike campo says:

    Back onto the flat now and Backed Fabre’s, AL Wukair for the 2000 Guineas @ 11/2 to win & 6/4 to place.
    All the national losses & today’s 365 consumed all my earlier Hennessy and Welsh National winnings so hopefully the flat will be kinder after a good start with Jack Hobbs a few weeks ago.
    Onwards and Upwards.

  22. mike campo says:

    Also had an EW on Eminent @ 11/2 this morning for the 2000 guineas..

  23. Mike N says:

    Mike C i’m on Barney Roy ew 7-1 in the Guineas. ;)

  24. mike campo says:

    Good price Mike.
    Let’s hope Churchill hasn’t trained on !

  25. marko says:

    Ive taken 16/1ew Dabyah with Stan James & doubled it with Eminent & Barney Roy , a big difference in the price with the bookies as it’s 7/1 with some firms

  26. Mike N says:

    Earlier in the week racing post said Dabyah was going to France with the other Gosden filly going to Newmarket.

  27. marko says:

    Mike thats a big ouch , i wish i had known that earlier

  28. Mike N says:

    Busy this weekend so will catch up on my picks as and when…

    2.20 Washington DC ew
    2.55 Seventh Heaven
    2000G Barney Roy 7-1 AP ew
    1000G Rhododendron 5-2 AP, Fair Eva 5-1 AP ew

  29. moreen says:

    I fancy Al Wakir and Barney Roy, too. But have had an ew on that battle hardened Godolphin horse. Can’t get very excited about the race, I’m afraid. Not sure about these O’Brien War Front horses. Good to hear that Big Fellah Thanks has been retired after pulling up lame today. What a grand horse he has been.

  30. mike campo says:

    I was obviously ripped off with my anti post EW on Eminent at 11/2 approx 10 days ago. I remain an AP mug so gone in again at 15/2 EW with PPower.
    Also did a small win double to also win the Derby at 33/1.
    Good luck team.
