Didn’t get much luck over the course of the weekend. Some good value and a couple of places but not the win we had hoped.
5:10 Leicester – Give It Some Teddy
Not had much luck this year with the draw at Pontefract, stuck out wide with a double figure stall on both runs. Might not be ideal either here in stall 16 of 17 but at its price I can’t ignore it. Runner up last year in a Newmarket handicap, winning the small group on its side having previously shown a good turn of foot to win a Redcar maiden. Not the strongest of races for this grade, it can find plenty of cover in this field and if getting the luck from its wide draw it has a shout.
0.75pt e/w Give It Some Teddy @ 14/1 Willhill
4:45 Gowran Park – A Few Bob Short
Lightly raced 3yo who ran a decent race on handicap debut when not getting a clear run. Finished 4 lengths behind Rockfish who reopposes here, though A Few Bob Short is now 15lb better off with that rival. The 2nd from that race has come out and won again since along with the winner who has gone in again hence the increase in weight. Middle draw should be fine, if the tongue tie brings about improvement then it should go very close.
1pt win A Few Bob Short @ 6/1 Skybet
