Captain's Blog - 21st December 2010

I must have spent more than an hour clearing our front drive of snow and ice yesterday only for it to snow heavily again just after I had finished. I am the only mug on the street to have embarked on this task and now I can see why everybody else decided to sit on their hands. I must make a mental note to check the forecast before embarking on such a task again. Yes more snow round these parts yesterday and given my proximity to Kempton it is not looking too good for the King George meeting. Officials at the track remain cautiously optimistic but in all honesty they will need a massive improvement in the weather which is unlikely.

We do have some action for you today on from Kempton on the all weather. They are staging a card for horses that have run over hurdles or fences and also a bumper. Winner finding will be tricky although some pedigree analysis may reveal horses that will be particularly suited to the poytrack surface. There are some decent horses at the meeting as trainers are anxious to get a run into their horses and it wil be intereting to see how some take to the polytrack surface. One angle today will be to look for horses with flat form on the polytrack such as Alsadaa in the 2.50. The race looks to be a tough one but Alsadaa likes it here and will go a proper flat racing gallop from the front which may catch a few of them out. I am not suggesting that we should be punting wildly at the meeting but there may be the odd opportunity to squeeze out a profit and Alsadaa looks to have a reasonable chance.

For true all weather officionados there is action at Southwell today and the fields are a decent size. There are plenty of in form horses taking part and anybody who saw Alpha Tauri win last time out will be interested in this horse again today. He is dropping in trip but the blinding pace he showed last time means that five furlongs will be no bar to further success. he should win but will be a restrictive price. The same applies to Nazreef later on the card. He was impressive last time and should win but will be odds on. Of these two short priced horses I would prefer to get stuck into Nazreef rather than Alpha, just because Alpha could bounce and his profile is a little patchy.

Right folks I am out for lunch today with some friends so need to get my act together.

All the best.
