15:55 Kempton 15 Sep 2020, Fergie Time?

You Know your luck is in when you book a week off work and you get a mini heatwave, well I say my luck is in but then I got told I was painting the house ffs, anyway I was planning a few posts on my days off but for reasons known I haven't had much time. As always a little look back in what hasn't been the best week. In my last post I mentioned Conquering Eagle but the Andrew Balding colt couldn't hold on for a place, I guess I was a little disappointed but it happens. I had a small bet on the William Haggas trained Shamardalah which I got totally wrong as the Richard Hannon trained Little Rollright won well. Another bet I made was Master Of The Seas in the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes but another who couldn't make the winners enclosure. All in all, a pretty disappointing week. 

RALPH BECKETT EYE-CATCHERS 

Ralph Beckett has enjoyed a nice couple of winners lately, first was Fablis for Mr K. Abdullah who won second timeout at Chepstow recently and looks like a nice prospect, next was New Mandate who won the Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster with the great man himself Frankie Dettori on board so it seems fitting to mention a few Ralph Beckett trained horses that I think will be winning in the near future. 

CASUARINA is a Sea The Moon filly who is owned and bred by Miss K. Rausing. Casuarina has a lovely pedigree and is a full-sister to 100 rated Durston and a half-sister to the Ralph Beckett trained Cubanita who won some great races including the Group 3 John Porter Stakes at Newbury in 2014 and had an official rating of 111. Casuarina made her debut at Leicester in a nice looking novice stakes race, well-supported from 10s into 5/1 Casuarina was slowly away and ran green before staying on and finishing third but couldn’t reach leaders. One for next time but I’m sure she will be well-supported again. 

Quantum Leap Racing have had a few nice horses with Ralph Beckett including Nivaldo who won his first two races as a 2-year-old and looked a great talent before sadly dying as a three-year-old. Wyclif is another who finished second in the Silver Tankard Stakes at Pontefract last season so it’s no surprise to see another on the eye-catchers list. ORGETORIX was a 40,000 gns purchase at the 2019 October Yearling Sales and made his debut at Newbury last month. The Archipenko gelding wasn’t well-fancied for debut but still ran a promising race to finish third and is another to look out for. 

15:55 Kempton 15 Sep 2020 

Things didn’t go to plan with my last Andrew Balding runner Conquering Eagle but another has hit the radar in the name of FLORENCE STREET and has the champ Oisin Murphy on board. Owned by Sir Alex Ferguson the Iffraaj filly made her debut at the beginning of the month at Salisbury and was up with the pace until weakening to finish seventh in a nice class 2 race. I’m hoping she will strip fitter tomorrow and the Balding and Murphy combination at Kempton can bring the money home. Florence Street is 4/1 at the time of writing(00.33) if drifts to double figures would be a negative. 

Couple of trackers that could be worth keeping an eye on in the next few days.
