Thank you very much for 10,000 Views (Plus Reviews and Previews)

When I started my blog just before the new Flat season I would have been happy with a few hundred views by this time but this week I reached 10,000 plus and I can't believe it to be honest. I would like to thank everybody who has taken the time to read and hopefully I have pointed out a few nice horses along the way. It hasn't all been plain sailing of course with some losers too but I have noted a few nice priced winners including Threat, Fred, Misty Grey and Good Vibes which have made it a season to remember for me with still a few months left. 

Timeform Dec Reviews 

Well Of Wisdom (Pictured) won well for the trackers last Sunday. I had a winning bet on this Charlie Appleby colt and couldn't believe the 3/1 he ended up. Well Of Wisdom looks a nice colt and ran a decent race in Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot last month. One thing I have to admit is that I was watching Liverpool on the TV and also trying to watch the race on my chrome book and for some reason, I thought Well Of Wisdom got beat and Saqqara King won, that’s when you know you need to take a trip to Specsavers. 

Fleeting Prince had been given a Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes entry after his debut run at Chepstow. He was quickly out the stalls at Windsor on Monday and made all to win easily. The price of 11/8 was decent but no bet for me. 

Cool Sphere ran a decent enough race to finish second but another no bet for me.

Kassab made a pleasing enough debut when finishing fifth in a fair event here on July 4th. This Peter Chappel-Hyam colt was an 85,000 gns purchase in April and will have to improve to trouble the market principles here. One positive is he has a Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes entry. No bet for me

Dark Lady made a pleasing debut when second to the very well-thought of Archie Watson filly So Sharp. This Richard Hannon Dark Angel filly looked a future winner going into many notebooks that day. Short at the time of writing so not sure what to do yet.

Depose. Kingman filly for Hugo Palmer, a bit of a worry hood first time. No bet for me.

Above. I imagine is one of Archie Watsons best 2-year-olds and to give away so much weight will have to be on top of his game. A 150,000 euro purchase for owners Qatar Racing Limited, Above has been given a few decent entries and hopefully, he can confirm his promise on Thursday. I imagine he won't be much of a price so another I might just watch instead of betting on.

Above won't have it all his own way because my second tracker in this race Swinley Forest has run two decent efforts himself. Thanks for reading and good luck.
