Captain's Blog - 6th January 2012

You must tune into Mark Your Card on Saturday as Ruby Walsh will be the guest. The best jump jockey in the business will be fascinating to listen to and he will bring something extra to this ever evolving programme.

With the Champion Hurdle picture being somewhat confused at the moment it was good to see that Hurricane Fly worked very well in a racecourse gallop at Leopaedstown. He will now run in the Irish Champion Hurdle on the 29th of January. Given his obvious frailty he is not a horse to get involved in before the actual day of the race but he is a class act and if he turns up fit and well for the Champion Hurdle he will take a good deal of beating especially given that Ruby Walsh will be on board.

I hope that you enjoyed our coverage from Dubai yesterday. Predictably the meeting was dominated by Godolphin and Mike De Kock. The latter won the big race of the day and the boys in blue won four of the seven races. This trend is set to continue throughout the Carnival and indeed today when once again we will be bringing you some Carnival action. Unfortunately our selection yesterday was a rarity yesterday because it was a Dettori ridden horse in the Godolphin colours that could finish only third beaten by a stable companion! What a nightmare. The big race today at Meydan is the UAE 1000 Guineas trial and it will probably be won by Godolphin as they have Gamilati in the line up and she will outclass her rivals at a restrictive price no doubt.

Make sure you tune in to today where we will not only have the Meydan Masters International Jockey challenge but also all of the action form Bangor as well. Do tune in it should be good.

I am under strict instructions to get to Tesco this morning before 10.00am and thus had better cut this short now and get my skates on.

All the best.


Today's Selection

3.25 Lingfield – Royal Bajan
