All You Wish Romps Home At 33/1 (Plus Previews And Reviews)

All You Wish Romps Home For The Trackers.  

Not a bad day on Wednesday when short-priced favourite Convict showed his class and finally got a much-deserved win for William Haggas and another one for my eye-catchers. Anastarsia ended up drifting to an unbelievable 3/1, considering she has a Group 1 fillies mile entry the 3/1 was a great price. 

Last but definitely not least was a couple I mentioned on my Twitter page on Wednesday morning because, to be honest, I didn't even notice them until my last post was already uploaded. Herman Hesse was the first for John Gosden and looked like he got stuck in the mud the last furlong and could only manage fourth. I was looking for some market support on Andrew Balding's All You Wish before deciding to bet or not but it didn't come, I had a small each-way anyway and luckily he won at 33/1 and it was happy days. 

Thursday I couldn’t see much of interest apart from a speculative bet on the Tim Easterby colt Brazen Point. Never involved on debut and a Class 2 entry to his name I thought a couple of quid each way at 14/1 was worth a chance. The money came in as Brazen Point was hammered into 3/1 second favourite only to finish a close fourth and just outside the money. 

15:50 Haydock 28 Sep 2019: Winner £6,469 - 7 declared to run. 

Tracker: Emaraty Hero. 

Eye-Catcher: Pot Of Paint. 

It's a shame only seven go to post here and I can only get two places, anyway, not a bad race to get stuck into. 

Bottom Bay put up a pretty professional display on his debut race at Leicester 19 days ago. The Michael Bell homebred colt was unfancied and went off 33/1. You wouldn’t have thought so by this display as the Oasis Dream colt broke smartly and knew his job straight away. Callum Shepherd looked to be in with a chance of winning until the last half-furlong when he couldn't quite challenge the leaders. Bottom Bay should come on plenty for that experience and has a leading chance. 

Damage Control for Andrew Balding. No significant entries for this Zoffany colt who made his debut at Salisbury three weeks ago. The 65,000 gns purchase was given quiet introduction by jockey William Buick. The race has a bit of depth to it with Max Vega, Shandoz and Khalifa Sat all winning since. The market should be the key here to his chances.

Emaraty Hero comes here with a big reputation. The Karl Burke trained Lope De Vega colt was purchased for 55,000 gns by owner Ahmad Al Shaikh last October. Interesting to see which way he goes in the market on debut. 

Embolden sets the standard for Richard Fahey but things didn’t fall for him at Chester and need to bounce back. Could be vulnerable to a promising type. 

Pot Of Paint went onto my eye-catcher list after making his debut in the Class 2 Convivial Maiden Stakes race at York in August. The Tom Dascombe New Approach colt went off at 66/1 shot for his first experience on a racetrack. Pot Of Paint was kept at the back by Richard Kingscote before he weaved his way through beaten horses to finish strongly into fourth place. That was an excellent run considering he was at the back until a few furlongs out and the form of the winner looks rock solid. 

You Owe Me is a 90,000 gns purchase for Paul and Clare Rooney. The Mark Johnston trained Champs Elysees colt has a nice pedigree and worth a market check on debut.


When I first saw the race I was thinking my eye-catcher Pot Of Paint looks a nice bet but after looking through it I think all the horses that run have a chance of improving and could be involved in the shakeup. To make it a bit tougher we have some potentially nice newcomers and also forecast heavy going after a fair bit of rain up north. The market is worth checking for sure and if pushed I might just do a small split stake on my eye-catcher Pot Of Paint and my tracker Emaraty Hero. A race to enjoy and not go mad because of the heavy going. Just to note to say I have a Facebook Group now just in case I miss any horses in my posts.

  1. All You Wish was exactly that by the finish line. A good few performances from this selection. Looking forward to seeing the eye catchers.
