Tanya's Blog - 24th September 2011

Dare To Dance is a non-runner but judging by the conversation I had with the grafters at Barking, Coral HQ business is good with a massive spread of runners being backed. In the Betfred Cambridgeshire, SkyBet are offering first six places while quite a few others are offering each-way first five places inc Betfred, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Boylesports, Bet 365, Victor Chandler and Stan James.

CIRCUMVENT is my pick with the hope that Christophe Lemaire sends him to the front on the rail as soon as possible as he travels well, can deal with the big field scenario and ran in the race last year. Proponent and Constant Contact are my each-way alternatives.

To give you an idea of just how hard the race is even with the non-runners, the 15 tipsters in the Racing Post selection box have come up with eleven different selections.

SAPHRESA deserves her hat-trick in the Sun Chariot and could cap a fabulous day for jockey Christophe Lemaire. Just to pause as I’ve lost concentration the coffee machine in the press room is now taking a hammering, the photographers are in need of refreshments ahead of a very captivating day. Tom Peacock, David Stevens, George Primarolo are all early birds working hard there’s much preparation to do in a day where quotes will be plenty.

Back to the selections, the Cheveley Park and Royal Lodge look too hard to call, although Lightning Pearl’s credentials are certainly well up to taking on Best Terms. At the time of writing it is 10.30am and now time to head off to the Channel 4 Racing programme meeting. There is much to discuss ahead of a schedule which includes coverage of four courses. You can catch all the action from Chester, Newmarket, Haydock, and Market Rasen all on Racing UK, isn’t it great the jumps are becoming prominent once more.
