Could Lexi Be the One? (Plus Reviews,Previews and Tips)

Flaming Princess wins at Nottingham
All good things must come to an end. May was an amazing month for me when I felt every 2-year-old horse tracker I backed would either win or place and often did. June seems to be the opposite way around at the minute and confidence is low. In my last post, I detailed my May bets and to a £1 stake I was £34 in profit, I won't reveal how much I put on just in case the Mrs actually reads one of my posts which is very unlikely, to be honest. I think everyone must go through bad spells and hopefully, lady luck will be back on my side just as quick as she deserted me. 

Right here we go, Wednesdays review, this is a few lines I wrote in my last post just a few days ago about the Cool Silk Partnership horses that I would be following: 

Next is Flaming Princess, this Hot Streak filly who is trained by Richard Fahey and was bought for £60,000 at the Tattersalls sales back in April and is entered to run in the same race as Moon of Love. 

Because I was working early this week I checked the betting the night before and Flaming Princess was 12/1, so I thought I would leave it and check again on my break in the morning. To my surprise, she was a 33/1 shot, so I thought the market drift must mean she probably wouldn't be winning today so it was a no bet for me. I put the race on at 12.00, Ffs she was backed into 12/1 and of course, the rest is history she won well and the second-placed Al Raya looks a horse that will be winning sooner rather than later. 


Am not going to lie it put me in a bad mood for the rest of the day and to make matters worse I backed my trackers Taste The Nectar and the expensive Tuk Power, not sure which was the worst, to be honest, but both finished down the field. I also mentioned a few trackers for Thursday in my last post, Dubai Station won and the other tracker I had in the same race Partridge came second. Finally, Praxeology also won at short odds but no bets for me. 

Timeform Early Declaration Alert With Preview:

15:20 Newmarket 08 Jun 2019: Ottoman Court runs for Charlie Appleby and had a Class 2 entry at York but didn’t run. This Shamardal Colt made his debut at Nottingham last month, the well-backed 4/9 favourite was slowly away and never involved. Interestingly he was given an entry for the Group 2 Railway Stakes after that debut which makes me think he will show a much-improved performance today 

19:15 Lingfield 08 Jun 2019: Lexi The One made her debut in the Class 2 Lily Agnes Stakes at Chester, not fancied on her debut she dwelt and was never involved, next race at Chelmsford she got into trouble again but a recent Class 2 race entry at Chester which she didn't take up gives me hope I will see some improvement today. 

19:15 Lingfield 08 Jun 2019: Ocasio Cortez had a Class 2 entry in April but didn’t run, no significant entries since. 

19:00 Chepstow 08 Jun 2019: Silver Start ran in the Marygate Listed race at York but finished down the field, extra weight to burden today but must have a chance in this lower grade. 

14:00 Beverley 08 Jun 2019: I can't finish without mentioning Moon Of Love for Richard Fahey and the Cool Silk Partnership, this is a tough race, to be honest, but Richard Fahey won it last year with Kodyanna. The 130,000 filly will have to be fit and ready to go, so a market check will be needed. 

15:05 Goodwood 09 Jun 2019: Sir Gordon runs for the Mick Channon stable who has won this race the last 3 years, was entered for the Brocklesby but never ran. 

The Saturday Trixie: 

Week 2: 

Aaron: Safe Voyage 3:35 Haydock - Course and distance who is 3/3 at Haydock most recently beating Mankib by 1 1/4 lengths a couple of weeks ago and should go well again. 

Sam: 3:00 Haydock - Stake A Claim - Won nicely on season return. The rain is welcomed as the best form is in the mud. Will look to make all in this tricky contest and should be up to the mark. 

Craig: 14:00 Beverley - Moon Of Love - for Richard Fahey and the Cool Silk Partnership, this is a tough race, to be honest, but Richard Fahey won it last year with Kodyanna. The 130,000 filly will have to be fit and ready to go, so a market check will be needed. 

Thanks for reading and good luck.
