Tanya's Blog - 14th January 2011
Hobb’s Dream obliged for us yesterday and by no less than 24 lengths, so understandably I was keen to check out the movers asap this morning. Three catch the eye but sadly from my perspective two of them are odds-on and I hate backing odds-on so for information purposes they are Mr Gardner in Huntingdon’s 2.10 and On His Own in Musselburgh’s 1.20.
Guns And Butter is the mover which has caught the eye a maiden from eight starts over fences and his only win coming in 2008, why the support? Worth keeping an eye on. Also its about now I expect Ferdy Murphy runs to hit top form so don’t be surprised if a couple visit the winners enclosure today.
Musselburgh’s 12.50 appears a superb contest which I make a match between King Fingal and The Galloping Shoe. I appreciate Aikman is the favourite and the one to beat but my two have so much potential. King Fingal fluffed his lines at a crucial point at Haydock and with more restraint can improve lengths and The Galloping Shoe has really solid flat form especially his third to Hot Prospect in a competitive handicap. He would have to be the pick.
There is nothing much to inspire for me at Huntingdon, too many short ones but I will keep a close watch on Sovereign Spirit in the 12.40, it’s not the best of races and he could surprise as there are no guarantees that every runner will perform to their peak. At Wolverhampton I think Itsthursdayalready could well defy the penalty in the 4.40.
Sad that poor Warwick have to inspect at 2pm today for tomorrow’s meeting, as it looked such a great card.
Bryan Smart has had six winners, two seconds and two thirds from his last 14 runners
Jim Goldie will be worth following today, especially at Musselburgh as he has had five winners from his last six runners
Jeremy Noseda has had ten winners from his last 32 runners at Lingfield
Joe Fanning has had seven winners from his last 13 rides
Barry McHugh has had seven winners and two seconds from his last 16 rides
Robert Thornton is three from three aboard Patsy Finnegan according to the brilliant signposts they go for a perfect four in Huntingdon’s 2.10
Nicky Henderson has had five winners from his last ten chase runners and overall nine wins, a second, seven thirds from his last 22 runners
