NOVEMBER 13TH. BRUTAL YESTERDAY. BETTER TODAY ??
You people know how serious I take my responsibilities when it comes to putting horses up to be backed and we are doing tremendously well showing huge profit but I must apologise for a truly inept performance yesterday. I posted a five point loss on what was an easy day to show a plus. I always call it as I see it when it comes to any topic so therefore I should not be immune from criticism either and I deserve it today. It was the intention to be on plus 230 by the weekend but that target will not now be met. One can go out of form at some stage so maybe tread carefully until the weekend when we have the Open Paddy Power festival on at Cheltenham. Of course I will be doing my best in the interm.
Today I am going with the following.
Huntingdon 1 40 . Competitive novice handicap chase and I prefer LORD TOMNODDY to the others. Ex David Pipe he has a bit of presence about him and the yard is in fine form. They expect a decent show today. He should put in a bold jumping display like he does at home. 1 pt win 4/1 generally.
Lingfield 1 00. SCHOLASTICA must make the allowance of the 7 ibs she receives from only danger Hidden Identity in this weak event. I will strike her off list if she does’t. 1 pt win 3/1.
Linfield 2 00 .OSCAR MAGIC could be a cut above his rivals if he still retains his ability after a setback and why should’t he ? Good enough to run well in the Cheltenham and Aintree championship bumpers the last year he will meet nothing of that calibre here. He is bred to relish the jumps and this ground and I rate him a nap at 11/4 generally. 2 pts win .
