Khaadem Makes Up for Disappointing Sea Of Faith (Plus Another Winner for Aaron)


For the first time in a while, I was able to sit and watch some great racing on Saturday. It was a great start today when Khaadem (Pictured) my fancy in the 1.50 at Newbury took apart what looked a good field. It was also a bonus taking 7/1 early doors for this Charlie Hills-trained son of Dark Angel. He looks a class act and should progress this season and pick up some nice prizes along the way. 

Al Hilalee was disappointing again and I will be taking him out my trackers after the last two efforts. Sea Of Faith was up against some decent rivals in the 4.50 at Newbury and came to challenge two furlongs out but found little. The winner Queen Power is a lovely filly for Michael Stoute and the King Power team, this chestnut filly will be going on to better things this season am sure. 

Timeform Early Declaration Alert Reviews 

I had a small each way bet on Jaunty at 16/1 as I saw a little market move and thought I would take a gamble. This Richard Fahey trained filly was backed into 8/1 at the off, which is always a positive move and having an early Class 2 entry I thought it could be my day, but that thought soon went when she veered left and was slowly away, a bit of late headway gives me some encouragement for next time out and I would love to see her entered for another Class 2 event or better, one to keep an eye out for next time out. The winner Althiqa looks a nice filly for the Charlie Appleby stable. 

My next tracker was the Richard Hannon trained Willa, I didn’t bet on this Dutch Art filly, but she was nibbled from 25/1 to 20/1 but finished way down the field. 

The Saturday Trixie Review 

Dreading this again as Sam and I couldn’t even manage a place but to my defence, I was thinking of selecting my 7/1 winner Khaadem but changed my mind (honest haha). Aaron showed us how it's done again when his selection the Willie Mullins trained Benie Des Dieux ran a great race and won at 3/1, so that’s three winners out of four selections for the main man Aaron, and he’s even talking about moving to a bigger and better blog, not a chance mate as this is the best out there. Next week I will be sticking to two-year-olds as it could be my best chance of a winner. 

Olympic Glory Conditions Stakes Race Review

This was a great race to just sit back and enjoy, some proper big guns out here and it didn’t disappoint. Wesley Ward had said he needed to bring Joker on Jack over here for a bit of experience, he picked a dam hard race though, quickly away before easing towards the finish after bumping a few rivals along the way. After all the bumping this race could easily have ended differently but the eventual winner Temple Of Heaven for the Richard Hannon stable ran a superb race who, by the way, has some lovely horses for Royal Ascot including Threat, Kemble and now Temple Of Heaven. I liked Well of Wisdom who was involved in the bumping incident and Fort Myers was also bumped but take nothing away from the winner who looks a lovely colt. I wouldn’t bet on it being a different outcome when they meet again though. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
