SATURDAY 14TH .POSSIBILITIES AGAIN.BATTALION.
Kempton 1 45 : IMJOEKING is on the upgrade and as he is best fresh on good ground this race is ideal. I think he is a bit of a good thing even with the Nicholl’s horse a warm order. 2 pts win at 11/4 PP.
Kempton 2 20 : MYDOR has an awkward way of going but he can fairly rattle home and the UK handicapper has erred here leaving him in off a mark of only 130. Shane Shorthall’s claim of five pounds only makes the bet more appealing. As competitive a race that this is I have to rate him an outstanding bet . He was 6/1 with PP but now is 4/1. 2 pts win at that.
Kempton 3 30 : LAMOOL is coming back off his Winter break and will like the strong pace and first time tongue tied can go well at a respectable 7/1 with PP. 1 pt win at that.
Kempton 5 15 : I swore I would not miss MIDNIGHT COWBOY after his very promising run over course and distance 36 days ago. He is worth at least 2 pts win at the 2/1 PP are offering at the moment.
Newcastle 4 00 : I love the fact that one of our winning purchases,NEXIUS, is being upped to three miles for the first time and he is fresh which is also a bonus . I think he will go very close. 1 pt win at 11/2 with PP which should be bigger later on but their SP or greater on every race is a safeguard anyway.
Uttoxeter 3 15 : BEG TO DIFFER was able to win first time out in a handicap and this lightly raced 5 year old will really appreciate the step up in trip to two and a half miles. A P McCoy is no drawback. 2 pts win at 9/4 PP.
Lingfield 3 05 : The Winter Derby is always a terrific contest and historically a race I have done well in. Connections tried new tactics to stunning effect on BATTALION in the Listed Churchill Stakes over course and distance last November and even though there is not a wild pace guaranteed they normally go some sort of pace in Graded company. I think BATTALION is a great bet and I am napping him to devour them late on . 2 pts win at 13/2 PP.
