Declared Interest appeared to be a horse to follow in the early stages of last season, but it didn't quite go to plan. Hopefully, she makes a winning start to her 4yo campaign.

Leicester 2:15

FLORENCE STREET make an encouraging reappearance after 224 days off the track, when finishing 7th at Newmarket a couple of weeks ago. Though 7th doesn't sound great, she was only 2.5 lengths behind the winner, and with a few furlongs left to run it seemed like she was going to be out the back of the picture, but she stuck on well and appeared that she needed the run.

With that run under her belt, I think there is much more to come from the lightly raced daughter of Iffraaj. Some of her form from her 2yo season stacks up quite well in this field, as this race doesn't appear to be that strong. The race at Chelmsford has worked out quite well, with the 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th all winning since.

With only four runs to her name, you'd be disappointed if she wasn't better than what we've seen so far. She has been dropped 1lb for her last run, which is a bonus, and this race looks easier than lto.

Andrew Balding continues to be in good form, currently operating at a 23% strike rate in the last 14 days, and 20% for the season from 260 runners.

Advised: Each Way (13/2 with PaddyPower/Betfred at the time of writing)

Leicester 2:50

My second and final selection for the bank holiday Monday is, DECLARED INTEREST, trained by Ralph Beckett.

This horse was well fancied in the Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot, last year. She went off 6/1 for that race, and arguably the soft ground went against her that day, where she finished 5th, 3 lengths behind the winner, Onassis.

Since then, she has been tried in Class 3's, Class 2's and even in a Class 1 Listed race. Last time out, she was dropped in class back into a Class 4, where she won, beating Bright Start, who has since franked the form by winning and finished runner-up twice. Today, she remains in a Class 4, but this is her first time racing in this class on turf. She is deemed to be better on the AW compared to turf, and the handicapper rates her 6lb worse off on the grass, which means she races off a mark of 83, as opposed to a mark of 89. This makes her an interesting candidate, as she was well fancied off a mark of 82 in a Class 2 (0-105) at Royal Ascot. This is her first start of the season, but she managed to win on her first start last year, and the Beckett yard are in good form (29% SR in the last 14 days).

A lot of the horses in this field are getting on in age, and I highly doubt they will be improving, and a lot of the older ones are on high marks and will need career best performances to win this race. Declared Interest looks to have the ability to be better than a 83 rated horse, especially with a pedigree like hers.

  3. elvis parsley 4 weeks ago

    Postman.
    I don’t know how old you are but I remember up to 16 meetings on bank holidays back in the late 70s/80s.
    Especially the Easter weekend.
    If wanted a placepot you would probably need all 6 to win 😁

    Remember stacks of jumps meetings with no big fields, you were lucky to get a single each way in some meetings with fields so small.
    Used to love those days, less head wrecking than sifting through 12-28 runner handicaps, and there was none of that all weather rubbish in those days.

    • Crawmeister 4 weeks ago

      No all weather rubbish just loads of days without racing !

  4. elvis parsley 4 weeks ago

    Good point crawmeister.
    All weather was brought in to fill the hole when meetings were abandoned in the winter.
    Over time it has almost taken over from turf to the point where there is sometimes 2 or 3 meetings a day, even in the summer sometimes, too much for me.
    As a viewing spectacle it leaves me empty.
    I’ve been to Wolverhampton a couple of times and it feels different than a turf meeting.

    Only good thing is that there a very few spectators, nothing worse than 20.000 piss heads at Chester on a Saturday just there for a piss up and no interest in the racing.
    Give me Ludlow on a Wednesday in November anyday.

    Only positives of all weather for me is that it gives lower grade horses more chances to have their day and gives more jockeys a chance of making a living.
    Each to their own I guess, but if there is only all weather on sky racing I wouldn’t bother watching and most likely wouldn’t be betting on it.

    Guess I’m an old stuck in the mud aren’t I.
    ——————————————————
    Have just bought a ticket for uttoxeter on June 16th, my 1st day at the races since Cheltenham 2020.
    Can’t wait, usually go to racing a couple of times a month so after 15 months with no live racing it’s like I’m getting part of my life back again 🏇

    Zetland gold cup
    Faylaq 4-40 Redcar
    9-1 ew (hills paying 5 places)

    Willie Haggas does well at Redcar in the summer months, with 18 from 36 runners winning (50%) from May to July including this very race last time it was run two years
    ago with Al Muffrih.

    🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇🏇

    Templepark 4-10 Cartmel 100-30.

    It’s 10-11 for a top 3 finish at Paddy power right now and I have had a largish stake on this.
    (In 22 completed races he has been in the 1st 3 on 21 occasions)

    If it’s outside the top 3 then it’s back to work on Tuesday 😬.

    Does his best work on good ground or better which he should get today.
    4 of his 5 wins been on good to firm.

    Todays jockey been on board for all his 23 outings.
    He rode this in his first 11 races for Ben case and has carried on riding him for feargel o Brien since.

    He is trained in the Cotswolds and from what I can see the furthest north he has ever been sent is Ludlow so it may be significant he had been sent all the way up to cartmel for this..
