Captain's Blog - Saturday 30th June 2012

Poole harbour was a much needed 5/2 winner for us yesterday here on the blog. He scrambled home under Richard Hughes at Folkestone and gave Hughes the first leg of a double in his title challenge. He needed a couple of winners because Ryan Moore booted home a couple at Doncaster as well. Both men have good rides today and it will be interesting to see what Saturdays score between them is later tonight.

My selection today is Michaelangelo in the opening contest at Newmarket. This lightly raced son of Galileo won a Listed race at Goodwood last time out despite being slowly away. He is lightly raced and open to a good deal of improvement especially now he steps up in trip. John Gosden is his trainer an dhe could not have his horses in better form. It all adds up to Michaelangelo giving us a good shout at the beginning of what will be a busy afternoon on .

I am working in the studio today, presenting Mark Your Card and the afternoon action with Dave Nevison as my guest. It is always good fun working with Dave who brings much needed entertainment to this great game of ours which can be taken oh so seriously at times. Our task will be to guide you throught he choppy waters of Mark Your Card and then try and find a few winners at Chester. Do join us from 12.30.

On a slightly more frivolous point I have just realised that all my work shirts are in the wash bin. I am therefore embarking on a washing machine and spin dryer challenge this morning. In essence I need to leave the house in an hour and a half with a clean shirt, nicely ironed for todays show. Time for me to sit and shout at the washing machine, it will not make it spin any quicker but it will make me feel better about the whole task. I must get more organised, but that is something I have been saying for the last 25 years. Diaster recovery probably suits me better.

Have a great organised weekend.
