15:10 Wolverhampton (16th November)

Big Boy Bobby ran a stinker last Wednesday for the blog but the saving grace was I did mention if over 15/2 it would be a negative and the 8/1 meant it was a no bet. 

Next season I hope to take more notice of the stats and see how things pan out. A couple of others to mention that actually won, yes you saw that right. Three-year-old Lydford got his head in front at Wolverhampton on Saturday afternoon. A half-brother to the talented Big Orange (pictured), Lydford was one of my 3 yo’s to follow last March and won well now stepped up in trip. A did lose a few quid on Leafhopper a few weeks back who I thought was a certainty to get a place only for her to finish down the field in a Listed event at Goodwood, a drop in class saw the Gosden filly win at Wolves Saturday evening. 

Couple I mentioned on Twitter to finish off, Emperor Spirit was definitely the best horse in the 6.15 at Wolverhampton on Friday, I took 5s and had an each way. The Gosden colt looked to be travelling like a dream on the inside so of course the way my luck is no gap appeared and Rob Havlin had to switch outside which by then the winner had flown and it was all too late for Emperor Spirit who stuck on well to finish second. Another Gosden 2-year-old and another place, Defined had good stats under 15/2 and by the off the Golden Horn colt had been backed to 8s, so I didn’t know what to do, in the end I took the gamble each way and another who ran well to get a place but I also felt disappointed as he looked to have more left in the tank. Enough waffling let's get to Monday.

Eleven go to post here, I will mention a few contenders. 

I actually have the Mark Johnston 140,000 gns purchase Alhaajeb as a horse to follow who I wrote about before the season started in the blog. Alhaajeb is a full-brother to the William Haggas trained Gravity Flow who finished runner-up in her first two races of her career and then went on to contest a few nice races as 3 yo. 

The next two I selected in the last month or so, the first Epidemic who I thought had a chance last timeout after a nice debut back in August but was pretty disappointing when awkwardly away and never involved, has to bounce back. The next Expect To Succeed who ran well without threatening the winner at Newcastle last timeout for Roger Varian when finishing third, claims again here. 

The one I will be taking my chances on is the William Haggas trained VISALA who hopes to serve it up to the boys here being the only filly in the field. The Exceed And Excel filly ran a pretty decent debut at Lingfield a couple of weeks back despite being a touch keen and slowly away. The first couple that day look nice types and if Visala can get away quicker tomorrow I’m hopeful of a place at least. William has pretty good win and place stats when 15/2 and under so if possible and each way for me but no bet if over 15/2. 

Thanks for reading and stay safe
