A TIDY little each-way return yesterday with my only tip Coiste Bodhar finishing a close second at an SP of 10-1. I thought he was getting up at one point but we’ll take that and move on.

Wednesday brings jumps action from Catterick and Fontwell along with all-weather flat racing at Kempton and Lingfield.

I have two selections both of which are relatively short prices by my standards but I think they both have a great shout.

2.20 Catterick

DE DOLLAR MAN is one I have had in my notebook for a couple of years. He looks to me like a staying chaser in the making and despite being reasonably handy over hurdles I think we are now all set to see him improve over fences.

Ideally I would like to see him over 3 miles but this 2.5 miles on heavy ground should be a solid test and although Verni is odds on and has solid credentials (2nd in the Martin Pipe at the Cheltenham Festival last year) this is a different test entirely and I think De Dollar Man is the value bet.

3.40 Fontwell

CABERNET D’ALENE is my second selection for the day. He is a rapid improver for Nick Williams having won his last two races and although he has gone up 10lb in the handicap I think he should still have more to give.

This field is fairly average and the main danger might come from the Phillip Hobbs' horse Waiheke who makes his handicap debut. I am much happier backing my selection though because we know what he can do and we know he is in form.

    It seems trainer Ann Duffield received a phone call from a disgruntled punter after the Mimic’s Memory race, he was a bit unhappy and vented his anger on the trainer,
    This is what she had to say about it.


    Punters who “do” their money don’t like it when they lose, after all it’s their pennies that are lining the bookies pockets but, they are not the ones living with these horses every day, they are not the ones getting up at the crack of dawn, day in and day out to feed, muck out, care for, ride, provide expert care. They don’t sit up with horses all night if something is wrong. They don’t work every hour God sends in the hope of leading up a winner, being in charge of looking after a winner or training a winner for the owners.
    So, when one of these “punters” takes it upon themselves to call a trainer immediately after a race and before the horse has even pulled up, complaining bitterly that the trainer’s horse should have won, do they really expect to have a ‘lovely little chat’ with an already disappointed trainer? A mad as hell trainer even, not necessarily mad at the horse, or the jockey, as is the case here, but angry at the circumstances which prevailed to prevent the yard having a winner with an average horse?
    This evening one such punter did just that, he (it’s always a ‘he’ by the way) failed to notice two important facts, due no doubt to the penniless mist that descended over his eyes clouding his judgement. One/ The horse jumped uncharacteristically very slowly and Two/ was brutally murdered on the turn taking a proper pounding costing the said horse (Mimics Memory) an all-important win.
    I say ‘all important’ because horses like her have limited ability but try hard in each and every race, so opportunities to compete in a race that is without a doubt ‘very winnable’ really matters because these races are like hens teeth to find. Does the said caller really think the trainer and staff are not very disappointed too? After all we are the ones putting in the effort to produce these horses, not the punter, although of course his or her contribution is important in racing, that’s for certain, but does the punter really think its appropriate to make calls, can’t he just cry into his pint? Isn’t that what pints and pubs are for? Certainly he should not be surprised if his call is greeted with a few little colourful adjectives. In fact the said punters call acts wonderfully well in a ‘punch bag kind of way’.
    I have said it many times, swearing really is therapeutic, it leaves the user with a lovely, relaxed feeling of achievement afterwards. I must practice it more often.

    Gordon Elliott stable tour:

    Apples Jade-
    She goes for the Mares’ Hurdle and I couldn’t be happier with her. She’ll do one more bit of work tomorrow morning and that’ll be her pretty much ready to go. She’s been easier to train this season. She just seems more mature and strong and her form on the track seems better than ever. I don’t think going there fresh will be a problem for her.

    Bless the wings:
    He will run in the cross-country chase and Davy Russell will ride him.

    Blow by blow:
    He’ll go for the Martin Pipe. He won well last time in first-time blinkers and that was probably the first time he’s shown his true form since he won the Grade 1 bumper at Punchestown. I’d say a combination of the less testing ground and blinkers were a help to him.

    Cause of causes;
    Trainer Says:
    He goes to the cross-country race. It looks a good opportunity for him. He’s in very good form at home and we couldn’t be happier with him. He doesn’t do anything fancy at home, but he always seems to come alive at Cheltenham. Jamie Codd will ride him.

    De plotting shed:
    He goes for the novices’ handicap chase and probably looks like he’s well enough handicapped. I’d like to think the longer trip and better ground will help him. With a bit of luck, he won’t be far away.

    He goes for the RSA Chase. It’s looks a competitive renewal, but he jumps, stays and gallops and that’s what you need to win an RSA. I think stepping up to the RSA trip will be the making of him.

    He’ll run in the National Hunt Chase. He hasn’t been an easy horse to train, but if you go back to his Albert Bartlett form he’d have a fair chance in this and he has a good record when fresh. He’ll be ridden by Barry O’Neill.

    He’s in good form and will run in the Triumph Hurdle. We’re going to put a tongue tie on him for the first time there. He doesn’t have a breathing problem, but I think it might help him a bit. I think he’s improving with every run and while he’ll need to improve again, I don’t think there’s any more than a good jump between the best of the Irish juvenile hurdlers. Jack Kennedy will ride him.

    Felix Desjy:
    He runs in the Champion Bumper. I think he’s a good horse and Davy Russell will ride him. I didn’t think I needed to do too much more with him and wasn’t sure whether to send him here, but the lads gave me the nod to send one over for it and I thought he was the best candidate.

    Flawless escape:
    He’ll run in the Martin Pipe. I thought he ran very well in his first handicap at Leopardstown and he ticks a lot of the boxes for this race. We have a few riders booked already and we’re likely to have four runners in the race, but the specifics of who rides what won’t be sorted out until closer to the time.

    He goes for the Pertemps Final. It’s a competitive race, but he’s in very good form. The one worry would be if it came up a bit quick, but it looks like there’s no real chance of that happening.

    Jury Duty:
    He goes for the National Hunt Chase and Jamie Codd will ride. He stays three miles, but four miles will be a question he has to answer on the day. He has a good bit of class, so if he gets home he must have a fair chance.

    Mengli Khan:
    He goes for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the drier the ground, the better his chance. It’s probably hard to see him reversing form with Getabird, but he’s in very good form. I’m just not sure he gave his running at Punchestown last time, as the third and fourth horses were a bit closer to him than I expected.

    He goes for the Fred Winter and is really well. I can see him travelling very well, but whether he gets up the hill is the question I have. I hope I’m wrong, but that’s my gut feeling.

    Monbeg notorious:
    He won’t travel and will wait for the Irish Grand National.

    He’ll run in the National Hunt Chase and Lisa O’Neill will ride him.

    He’ll take his chance in the Gold Cup and it looks an open race. He had surgery for a kissing spine before he started back this season and I’ve been very happy with his performances this season. He ran bad in the race last season, but his jumping was terrible on the day and that was the case again at Punchestown after that, so maybe the issue with his back was to blame.

    He goes for the Ballymore. If it came up really heavy, you never know, but the Ballymore is very much the plan as of now. I’d imagine we’ll give him a straightforward, jump him off in fourth or fifth and ride him like the best horse in the race.

    Shattered love:
    She goes for the JLT. She jumps and gallops and I thought this might be a weaker option than the RSA for her. She’s nice and straightforward, so we can jump her off good and handy there and make use of her jumping and stamina. She’d had a few runs leading up to Christmas, so we decided to train her for here after that rather than give her a run in between. Another part of that is that I want to have some of these horses still in top form for the spring festivals in Ireland too. The last couple of seasons we’ve found ourselves running a bit low on ammunition for those meetings, so we think giving some of them an easier time in the middle part of the season might pay off later.

    Sire du berlais:
    He’ll go for the Martin Pipe and is on good form. He’ll galloped through the line very well last time and I really liked his run.

    He’ll run in the Kim Muir and Jamie Codd will ride him. Based on his run in the Paddy Power he has a good chance and even looking at his run at Cheltenham last year up until he fell would give you in encouragement.

    Tiger roll:
    He goes for the cross country and Keith Donoghue will ride him. He had a kissing spine surgery before he came back this season and he’s another that seems to come alive at Cheltenham. We brought him over to school over these obstacles since his last run and I was delighted with him over there. We don’t like to leave any stone unturned if we can at all and that is why we do things like that. He’s absolutely flying at home and I think he’ll run very well.
