Friday's Horse Racing Info (3rd September)

I had high hopes for a decent day Thursday but it turned out to be a disappointing after a few of my trackers disappointed. 

First off was the James Ferguson trained Viadelamore who I thought was a cert for a place at least at Salisbury. I was excited to see some early support when backed into 8s from 20s but the money faded a bit like Viadelamore’s effort who could only manage fourth. 

My other tracker Outbreak did win nicely in the end and the Dark Angel looks a nice one for Qatar Racing who gave him as a 2-year-old to follow in my blog at the start of the season. 

Persist ran well enough in the next at Salisbury but looked a bit disorganized towards the end of the race when struggling to find a gap, pretty sure Persist will win soon. Kinrarra was disappointing after drifting before the off. 

I expected a bit more from Bantry in Ireland who only managed fourth and New York City will have learned a lot after finishing third. 

16:20 Newcastle 03 Sep 2021 

The Marco Botti trained Tatsumaki looks a nice type after winning first time out at Newmarket last month but has a win penalty here to make life a bit more difficult. I will be taking him on with the Roger Varian trained LEUVEN POWER. The Cotai Glory colt was purchased from Book 1 at the October Yearling Sales for 180,000 gns. He made his debut at Salisbury just over a week ago when easy in the market. Leuven was slowly into stride that day and rode along until staying on again the last furlong. Roger does have a decent record at Newcastle especially when under 15/2 so as long as Leuven doesn’t drift it’s an each way all the way for me, 5/1 at the time of writing. Designer is another tracker here for John Butler after running better than her odds on debut when finishing fourth at 125/1, not one to be taken lightly here. 

15:30 Haydock 03 Sep 2021 

IMPROVISE is another who will hopefully improve after running green on debut at Newmarket. The Michael Bell trained Iffraaj filly was slowly away that day before making ground but couldn’t quite find the gap and then coasted home. I’m pretty sure Improvise is better than that. A full-sister to Eightsome Reel who finished third in a Listed race in 2019 for the same combination Michael Bell and The Queen. The betting should give us some clues, if over 9/2 it would be a negative. 

16:50 Down Royal (NI) 03 Sep 2021 

Yes I know SNAFFLES Is odds on but this Joseph O’Brien colt let me down for a few quid when finishing fifth on debut at Leopardstown last month. I took a good price that day before Snaffles was well-supported. The Churchill colt was outpaced before finishing with plenty left in the tank. Joseph does think a bit of Snaffles and connections will be disappointed if he can’t get involved here. 

Hoping for better luck and thanks for reading as always.
