    So good to see many of the old faces posting again, some really nice winners as well.

    Had a look at Fridays card and nothing inspires me about the afternoon meetings.

    In the evening cards I am going to go to the well again with the Owner, Trainer, Jockey Combo, I have three solid selections that fit and a nearly almost fit. I wont bore you with the details but you can check them out yourself and see what you think.

    8:00 Haydock – Newera @ 4/1
    8:35 Cork – Karalara @ 3/1
    8:50 Stratford – Iguacy @ 6/1
    9:00 Haydock – Chosen Character @ 4/1

    Should be a winner in those for the Owner, Trainer & Jockey.

      Put this up yesterday and I haven’t looked into the American race

      The Irish 2000 Guineas looks a lot harder to call than our 2000 Guineas,
      I know I tipped Galileo Gold at Newmaket but Saturday’s race will be harder.
      I am still not convinced Hugo Palmer can get a horse 100% and with Air Force Blue & Air Vice Marshal guaranteed to be better this time & also Awtaad & Blue De Vega very strong contenders it makes the race hard to call

      Yeah Ballydoyle returned an unsatisfactory blood test so is out and O’Brien has now put Minding back in the race this morning, which is why everything else has drifted
      I was very confident against Ballydoyle but still feel Now Or Never can give Minding a good run

    For anyone that has backed Idaho for the Derby, Saturday is a big day for you,
    With US ARMY RANGER guaranteed to run in the Derby, the Gurkha could yet miss out depending on tomorrow’s Irish 2000 Guineas,

    If AIR FORCE BLUE and AIR VICE MARSHAL both flop again tomorrow then O’Brien will have to reshuffle his horses meaning for him to have a miler at Royal Ascot’s St James Palace Stakes he will keep THE GURKHA out of the Derby and instead run him at Royal Ascot

    I think O’Brien will go for three runners in the Derby but he may yet still take four,
    If he runs four and his two flop tomorrow then it’s simple

    If he runs three and his two flop tomorrow then it’s
    then two from

    If either AIR FORCE BLUE or AIR VICE MARSHAL win tomorrow then it looks like THE GURKHA will definitely be in the Derby even though I can’t see him winning
    For me IDAHO is his best chance

      If So Mi Dar hadn’t gone lame then O’Brien would have run Minding in the Derby which would have seen So Mi Dar odds on for the Oaks but unfortunately you can’t foresee injuries

    Johnb ye say in ur opinion hugo palmer canny get 100% oot of a horse wot percentage do u fink is left am interested ti no n how do u gauge wots left? Ktf

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 5 months ago

      Judging on the breeding of a horse can gauge what a horse can achieve with also taking into account the running style & timings I can also have a fair idea if a horse is underperforming or over performing, it’s all mathematical the way I do it, I can never be right all the time, nobody can,

      Like anyone else that really studies horses in depth it’s just an option and that’s my opinion,

      Far too many of Hugo Palmers horses look like they should an could run better, Hugo says Galileo Gold has come on since the Guineas but I believe strongly that other trainers horses will have come on more, it’s too hard a race to call because of my doubts about the trainer

      Not going will just have to watch on tv but should be a good game, Hibs always lift their game for Rangers
      We lost out in playoffs and people say it will be hard to get back up for the final but I think they will, also Rangers since they clinched promotion took their foot of the gas, which some could say it’s hard to get upto that level again after so many meaninglessness games,
      After 114 years we have to win one at some point so who knows

        Also with the horses sometimes you can over complicate things and put too many hours in but I like to think outside the box

    Awtaad e/w looks a bet to nothing 4.50 Curragh
    Trainer : “He’s in good form and ready to fire. We’re very happy with the horse.
    “We had a horse beaten less than five lengths in the Irish Guineas last year (Mohaayed) and this horse would be miles better than him, so we’ll see what happens.”the ground is perfect and if everything goes well, I’m sure he’ll run very well GL.
