I was unable to make it a hat-trick of wins with my sole selection letting me down.
Riversway didn't have any excuses in my opinion. She was bang there a furlong or so from the line and when asked to quicken found little of the bridle when asked to go win the race.
Another competitive day of Saturday racing is on the horizon and it will be my last day covering rizz as he is back on tomorrow evening with Sunday's tips. As usual thanks for the kind words of support in the comments. It can be a frustrating old game!
Annaf 5/1 – 1:50 Sandown
A very competitive race and one I'd normally enjoy watching rather than punting in however I like the chances of Mick Applebys Annaf.
Micks having a good season and has Annaf in good nick heading into this.
Tomorrow's race is a drop in grade for my selection. Annaf has a recent run under his belt after running a stormer at Royal Ascot where he finished third in the King's Stand last month.
He beat a couple of these on that occasion including Raasel, Marshman and Existent. A repeat of that performance can see Annaf go close at decent odds.
Stenton Glider 11/4 – 3:00
A good few in this race hold strong claims but I narrowed it down to Hugo Palmers Stenton Glider.
He's still very much unexposed and in my opinion, brings the strongest piece of form to the table.
He finished second in the German 1000 Guineas recently and tomorrow's race represents quite a significant drop in grade.
Andrea Atzeni takes the ride and was the man on board Strenton Glider when he contested the German 1000 guineas.
Gaassee 14/1 EW – 3:15 Haydock
Not a selection I'd throw the wallet at due to being completely out of sorts but at the prices I couldn't help but have a few bob on him each way at 14s.
Gassse was pretty unlucky not to win this particular race last year. When he contested last year he was running of 101 and has now dropped to a handicap mark of 99. Adam Farragher has been booked for the ride and takes of a further 2lb.
I mentioned above that I wouldn't go big with the stakes on this one as he's been completely out of sorts on his previous 2 outings since being gelded.
Horses can sometimes need a run or 2 after a gelding operation so im going to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he can bounce back.
He's too well handicapped to ignore at the prices and if able to recapture some of his older form could see him run a good race at nice odds.
Good luck tomorrow and good luck to Rizz on his return tomorrow night.
