NO winners on Saturday so September is now 1.84pts down but well to everyone who picked well.
Resiliency is one horse I had marked down for hurdling, he has the flat form to be decent, the distance is interesting as I thought he would have started over a shorter distance but his rating of 84 on the flat when last seen says he should be able to take care of these, even after 471 days off the track.
Connections have gone for a tongue tie so if he has had a breathing problem then that will help.
Degooch has seriously been underestimated by the bookies here, he won well at Stratford two runs ago when beating a 123 rated horse by 10 lengths. The handicapper did take action with a 10lb rise, it's hard to say how he would have got on last time if not falling but he is a lot better off with Midnight Cowboy this time. He does need to jump better but I like his chances.
