Thanks, the drift had me worried for a while. I wonder how far it would have won by if it wasn't hampered!
Dam I have the painters in as the betting Was on for the last one of them said PUT THE KETTLE ON was gonna wack a tenner on it ffs
If ever a jockey won a race by pure horsemanship it was Rachel Blackmore on Honeysuckle. Hats off for a fantastic ride and what a move up the inside round the home turn.I would never let him live it down! I remember Bryony winning and how emotional an occassion it was.
It's quite striking how things have changed over the years. Male Jockeys seem to struggle to break through due to weight issues and women are now proving themselves as equals.
When I was young I just thought that females enjoyed horse riding so much because it gave them stimulation while hidden in plain sight!
Yeah like i said yesterday she is a great jockey. Easily as good as any male jockey and great that she and Bryony get top rides from leading trainers.If ever a jockey won a race by pure horsemanship it was Rachel Blackmore on Honeysuckle. Hats off for a fantastic ride and what a move up the inside round the home turn.
All in all its been a great days racing so far, every race has been really competitive and no excuses for any horses that have been beaten.
Pretty new to the forum but wanted to drop in with my thoughts. Be lucky guys:
1:30 - Shishkin (Won 6/1)
2:10 - Fakir D'Doudiries (EW) (2nd 3/1)
2:50 - The Conditional (EW) (Won 15/2)
3:30 - Pentland Hills (EW) (9th 9/1)
4:10 - Benie De Dieux (2nd 4/6)
4:50 - Imperial Aura (EW) (Won 4/1)
5:30 - Carefully Selected (UR)
Would be good to hear what everyone else is backing.
Tomorrow 2 of my ante post bets run, imperial aura in the 4.50 that I took 14/1 for (now 7.1 favourite) and Captain Guiness in the 1.30, took 16's, now 14's.
I like No comment in the Ultima
In the 5.30 I think Carefully Selected is possibly the banker of the meeting (at odds against), and will also be doing a forecast with Lord Du Mesnil, which i think is clear second best in the race.
It looks like you did ok today It wasn't one of my best days but watching Blackmore nip in on the inside rail while Townend seemed to be sleeping was my highlight of the day.3 out of 7 on day one, more losers than winners but decent prices so will be a profit to level stakes. Here's tomorrows:
1:30 The Big Breakaway (EW)
2:10 Minella Indo
2:50 Birchdale (EW)
3:30 Defi Du Seuil
4:10 Tiger Roll
4:50 Aramax (EW)
5:30 Appreciate It
