NO joy on Sunday with two second places as good as it got to leave me 8.5pts down for October.
Conrgrats to all who fared better by landing a winner and my Monday tips are here, with a write-up to follow.
The Grape Escape won last time out when not getting a clear run, he had to wait but when in the clear he quickened well. That was a good win against horses like Sharja Bridge and Almoreb, he doesn't face anything like those horses here and although giving away a lot of weight he clearly has more improvement in him.
Golden Birthday is another horse that has successfully changed codes with his win at Leicester. I was a bit worried about the testing conditions that day but he proved he can act on any going and should also be able to handle the polytrack. Golden Birthday is lowly handicapped on his hurdles rating and should be up to winning again against better horses here.
