Captain's Blog - Wednesday 25th April 2012

I enjoyed watching the Chelsea vs Barcelona game last night. Chelsea were not the best team, however gritty and determined they were, but they are through to the final and that, at the end of the day, is all that matters. It would seem that the good Lord is on their side in this tournament and as such they could just go on to win it. My suspicion is that they will be playing against Real Madrid and what a clash that would be with Jose Mourinho taking on his old side. I think that is the final everybody wants to see, but before we can look forward to it Real must see off the determined and ruthlessly efficient German side - Bayern Munich. All will be revealed later tonight.

I am delighted that racing returns to Epsom today, I am a big fan of the track and enjoy punting there. Today the ground is going to be soft and winner finding may be difficult. I am sure they will come stand side and hard against the stands rail will probably be the best place to be. Nick Luck who seems to take rain with him wherever he goes will be your host along with Eddie Freemantle. I fancy Fathom Five to run well in the opener. He saves his best for this five furlong track and is really well drawn in stall 15. He has won this race before and in essence he is a stone better here than at any other track. He can be backed each way at 9/2 with SkyBet right now, but is shorter with other firms and I suspect the 9/2 will not last too long.

I also like Cameron Highland in the Derby trial. He looked very useful when easily shrugging off his maiden tag at Redcar earlier this season and did so despite being a little keen early on. He is a well bred son of Galileo and providing he is not too keen here he will go very close. I am slightly worried about the ground and his forward going style but he is a smart prospect who will probably win.

Have a good day folks.
