SUNDAY 4TH AUGUST. OH DEAR, TOM QUEALLY, WILLIAM BUICK.
I managed to post a 6 and a bit pt loss yesterday [ will double check] so I am approx 7 pts plus starting today. It can often happen after a beano the day before. I was robbed though and worst of all, by a Waterford man.
Tom Queally got it horribly wrong on the brilliant filly HOT SNAP. I hate being critical of any sports men or women as all are trying their best but if you are entrusted with a top position in your discipline you are expected to carry it out to your best and therefore you must have a ruthless streak about you. Tom left his at home yesterday. I am not joking you when I tell you the outstanding filly should have won by 3 lengths and pulling up. Tom made 5 different mistakes in the race and I hope he will learn from this. It made the calamitous William Buick ride on EXCESS KNOWLEDGE earlier in the week look trivial. HOT SNAP is one of the best fillies I have seen in a long time.
Attalos could only finish second so a further pain in the stones there. Sorry.
I am confident about today.
Newbury 3 50. SEAL OF APPROVAL 11/2 PP, 1 pt win. Improving rapidly, high head carriage but keeps going forward, value against hyped favourite.
Newbury 4 55, The more showers the better for ROSIE REBEL, terrific bet in this , now 11/4 with PP , nap. 2 pts win.
Market Rasen , 4 00, RENOYR needs to brush up his jumping, if so, wins, big edge. 2 pts win at the now 3/1 PP.
Market Rasen ,4 35, Ex German, WISENTRAUM only has to stand up to collect, great bet at 11/4 PP, 2 pts win, huge class edge again.
More to follow, check for bigger prices elsewhere,do not have time this morning.
