GM – 26th May
The big guns Romanov & Bullet got the job done in the Rosebowl heats. Chop Chop Hope won the Standard Final in great fashion.
My only selection Chop Chop Lady did lead as I expected and I thought she would go on and win but she was disappointingly out battled close home by Seaglass Sparky.
Lady has now been sacked forever.
Towcester tonight features the Derby Semi Finals and Champion Hurdle & Derby Plate heats.
I’m happy to sit out and just watch the semi finals and hope we have something Ante Post to cheer on next week. Though I don’t think the third run in a week will hamper the Bullets!
The Plate Heats
Heat 1 – Seamus will know better than me why he’s took the middle seed off Sporting Dave – he was a railer before but I think he was maybe better from a wider middle draw.
But he’s the selection anyway as I think he’s the best dog in the race with just about the best early pace.
Heat 2 – Is all about Droopys Expert who has pace to burn and he was unfortunate to be knocked out in the first round…..he duly flew round Nottingham in a very fast time.
He can make amends tonight.
Heat 3 – Magical Bale hosed up in the first round then couldn’t get a run and bowed out in round two – he’s better than that! He can show that here from a plum rails draw.
Now as there all fairly short favourites let’s just back them Ante Post so we have something to look forward to in next week’s Final.
Hurdle races don’t really excite me from a betting perspective though they are exciting to watch as a spectacle. So I’m not playing in the Champion Hurdle.

Droopys Expert 2 points win @ 11/4 B365 & Skybet
