Captain's Blog - 26th September 2011

I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed all the action on . It was a busy weekend for me, but I have a couple of days off now to prepare for some action from Kempton on Wednesday evening and then a stint in the studio on Thursday and a trip to Newmarket on Saturday. At least here on the blog we enter a new week with a winner behind us following the success of Pimpernel at Newmarket on Saturday. It is always nice to enter a fresh week with a few units to play with.

So You Think
The focus of much of our attention this week on will be on the Arc at Longchamp and we will bring it to you live on Sunday. At this stage I do not have a strong view on the race and much will depend on how much rain they get in France this week so for now I am going to plead the fifth and wait until later this week here on the blog to have a good look at the race. One thought to get the ball started concerns So You Think. I personally think he is a doubtful stayer at a mile and a half, but this point has surely been overstated of late and we should always remember that he has run well in the Melbourne Cup before. More on the Arc over the next few days.

The jump trainers championship has been priced up by various firms and Coral go 4/7 Paul Ncholls and 7/4 Nicky Henderson. I think these prices are spot on and actually Nicholls is reasonable value. I will not be getting involved because who knows what twists of fate lie around the corner, for example one of the yards could get a crippling virus but all things being equal I believe Nicholls will be champion trainer.

Time for me to sign off for the day. All the best folks.
